I've been working on songs that make me think of Lantean Legacy when I hear them. I'm interested in music you think might fit with the series. I really didn't have a play list for when I was writing the first book and I'm hoping a play list will help with the plot work and writing on the new book 2.

I'd like about 20 songs for the play list. This is what I have so far:

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones

I love the piece from the movie "Street Kings" entitled "Biggs and Ludlow".

::scrolling through my playlists in iTunes::

Elegia by New Order

The Valley of the Moon by Lisa Gerrard (actually there are a lot of great tracks on her "The Silver Tree" album to check out- haunting music)

Sunshine After Midnight by Robin Guthrie

Brothers in Arms by Dire Straits

I don't have any tracks/albums yet but have you checked out Bear McCreary's stuff from BSG?

Battlestar Galactica, Kat's Sacrifice

General's Daughter, Excercise in Darkness

Willow, Elora Danan

And for classical pieces, I wanna recommend the entire soundtrack of Shutter Island, starting with this:

I really like it a lot so far. Also, I'm a bit of a lurker, but I just wanted to add that I've a long time avid reader of yours, and that I love all that you've written so far. I monitor any updates viciously. Thanks for writing and sharing it with all of us.

The techno stuff from the massive party the humans have before the battle is great for getting revved up in the morning.

One more offer. Its Eric Johnson's White Cliffs of Dover, an instrumental electric guitar song. Most people have forgotten it, except that it is on Guitar Hero.

ok, so I have one other. I dont know why these keep popping into my head, but I kept thinking of the soundtrack to Serenity, the movie they made from the tv show Firefly. It has a very emotive quality, I think. The soundtrack for the movie is on grooveshark. composer is David Newman. I would link it, but i dont know how to do that for Grooveshark. to remind you what the theme sounded link, here is a youtube link

hey kinda a nosy question (feel free to "no comment" it) but what particular parts or areas do you see each song fitting? I can get the feel of them for the whole, but I was curious about where you fit them in. (i intend to go read the section with music playing! lol.) anyways! great track, hope the foot feels better soon-ish.

*throws my pom poms in the air*

Just the thought of Book 5 makes me do the geriatric fangirl chairdance of glee... you big tease.

Pain pills definitely wreak havoc with both concentration and creativity, as I know all too well. Fortunately, I'm starting to move into the less painful parts of rehab.
At least in theory.

Hope springs eternal.

This afternoon, I told my physio that she's a very creative sadist and she laughed at me.

Le sigh.

The player gizmo doesn't work in Oz. Of course. But I've had fun flailing around with more energy than style on You Tube, and had a pretty good run of luck.

I'm delighted to hear that your foot is less painful!

Cursed player won't even let me see the list cause I'm not in the U.S. ":< so no idea what you've got so far, but two awesome pieces of music that may fit in with your awesome series...

Handel's Largo, which is part of his Water Music.

We Made A Pact by Hey Rosetta which would also be perfect for a John and Rodney fanvid.

I don't really tend to pair fiction and music in my head (well, except for Austen and chamber music), so my suggestions are a little -um -nonexistent. I just came up for air from a nutso period in my life and realized I haven't yet said phooey on the foot problems or given words of encouragement. So, before I dive back in to my life, I send supportive comments your way.

Oh, and while this doesn't really fit, I just had to mention it -it always makes me smile. "That happy feeling" by guy Warren. Just one of those happy, bouncy little tunes that cheers me no end. No clue where you''d find it online, sorry.

You need some Florence and the mMchine. Cosmic love is all about being abandoned by someone you love very much like Atlantis and the other leviathins were abandoned by the ancients.
There's also the druming song which is about needing something or someone hugely, achingly and completely. I don't want to influence your opinion of it too much but I think it really reflects John and Rodney's relationship in Sentinels of Atlantis, aswell.

Never Surrender - The Crüxshadows
It seems to hold the Lantean spirit to me.

I love Lux Aeterna, thank you of reminding me of it! I recommend Brothers and Secure from the Broken Arrow score. They really have to be listened to together as the first leads directly into the second and ends rather abruptly otherwise.

how about the remake of Jimi's All Along the Watchtower. YOu know the new version they used in the new Battlestar. I think it's by Bear McCreary.

I Love all the Evanescence in the play list. I adore that band. I got introduced to them through their lyrics /cough songfic /cough
(yes there was a stage where I loved 'em /shudder.) If you can get a hold of their discography there are some songs that you might like that weren't release on their 2 major albums, or other/earlier versions of some of the songs you have in the playlist. ( not that any version is the "best" just slightly different)

For example:

Before the Dawn

Meet me after dark again
And I'll hold you (hold you)
I want nothing more than to see you there (hold you)
And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

If only night could hold you
Where I can see you, my love
Then let me never ever wake again
And maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

Somehow I know that we can't
Wake again from this dream
It's not real, but it's ours

Maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

Maybe tonight, we'll fly so far away
We'll be lost before the dawn

Try any of Enya's songs. She tends to be very haunting and lyrical, which would fit with the style of songs you have here really well.
I am glad that you are starting to feel better.

I am not sure what you are looking for. So here are some of my favourites.

Chloë- Walking In The Air

Loreena McKennitt- Never-Ending Road (Amhran Duit)

Wintersleep- Weighty Ghost

James Blunt- Same Mistake

Might be too late to add my vote but I really adored this one.

#9 (Lux Aeterna: Requiem for a dream

Though the list is awesome though especially since Evanescence is one my favorite singers. Especially that one song of hers: My immortal.

I hope you're still doing okay and that the foot is getting better.

There is this wonderful band called Albannach that hails from Scotland. They play what they call tribal Scottish music. One of my favorite songs is called Ancestors. The video isn't the greatest but the lyrics are beautiful.

Oh, and so are the guys in the band! mostly drumming, a little of the pipes, and hunky guys. And the best part? They're going to be at the PA Renaissance Faire this weekend! Guess where I'm gonna be?

Ancestors by Albannach
Hear my voice blowing on the breeze,
Know your fate know your history,
As I am now you one day will be,
Face your past then face your destiny,
Mmhh mhh mhh
Now you may live a different place,
Brought up and lived a different way,
But if you have our blood in your veins,
Then you will know us, know home, know who you are.
Mmhh mhh mhh
Now here you are, standing next to me,
Come take my hand, and walk with me,
If you could feel the peace in our hills and glens,
You would know in swear with all begin
and you would know who I really am

Oh, thanks! The first time I heard the song was when they played at the Renn Faire. Jacqui introduced it as a song for all of us with a Highland heritage who have never been "home". It was a punch in the gut. It's so hauntingly beautiful and the lyrics so remind me of the Lanteans & the Sentinels.

Sorry, I'm late with this; midterms are eating my brain. I've got two songs from the illustrious Jeffrey Foucault (

Wild Waste and Welter (
Honey leave the lights down
There’s killers on the road
Going door to door
With lamp black eyes
And the number on your soul

They’re painting down the doorposts
With the darkness of the lamb
And the instruments of mercy
Are foreign to their hands

The sleeper trains go rocking
Through the catalogue of night
The darkness by arrangement
The engine out of sight

And sleepfast all the poor ones
The old ones and the young
Know the scenery is everything
Inside the barrel of a gun

It’s all wild waste and welter
Come singing to the bone
No one can give you shelter
From the one thing that you own

They throw tickertape on Main St.
There’s a hero in every car
Singing, "Down with the traitor,
Up with the star!"

They line up to take the sacrament
When they hear the anthem sung
And the Scarecrow and the Tin Man
Place a memory on their tongues


But who will pay to garrison
This city on a hill?
Who’s left to play the audience
When everyone’s a shill?

Every dream is born in waking
Every liar with the truth
The acorn fells the oak tree
Blood is the only proof

So Honey leave the lights down
Until I find the door
The truth is like a pearl
Beneath my tongue
But I can’t use it anymore.

And the second one:

Dove and the Waterline (
I wrote you a song from under the sky
From the field where the snow fell down
And the town threw up its light
Against the clouds into the night
Like a wall to keep the flood from bearing down

And I said hello can you help me
Do you know
What I'm doing can you tell me
Where I'm bound
The stars all have names
And the angels have the same
But I'm lost and so much want
To be found

I wrote you a prayer from inside the walls
Of this country where the cold wind blows
And a storm into the sea
Rang out against man's every plea
To rouse my soul and steal my body down below

And I said hello can you help me
Do you know
What I'm doing can you tell me
Where I'm bound
I'm cast away
Into the deep and compassed there
No soul to keep
Afire and to the water burning down

And I said hello can you help me
Do you know
What I'm doing can you tell me
Where I'm bound
The stars all have names
And the angels have the same
But I'm lost and I so much want
To be found.

this vid has some great Atlantis visuals

I Will shut the world away

I'm a little late to the party, but I thought I'd add a couple of recomendations.

In the vein of the Within Temptations songs (.... Prepare for battle, we will succed ...)

WinterBorn by The Cruxshadows


The March of Cambreath by Heather Alexander

Hope these might help you out. If not, they're still great songs :)

Yes to both of these. I hear them both when I am writing my stuff. Mainly the AUC & my Sentinel/Guide 'verses.

Love these two songs!

Have you listened to Hope by Apocalyptica? It seems like it could fit into this soundtrack well.
