Let's keep this thread going!

I saw 'Further Up/Further In' by MyEpic mentioned earlier on this thread - incidentally, my signature is a line from that song.

Also, I think that 'Not Over Yet' by For King and Country really fits.
The second verse is especially Narnian-sounding.


'Oh, game set match
It's time to put it in your past, oh
Feel the winter leaving
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart (here we are)
Cheers to a brand new start (here we are)
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom'
Love can save a life, like music warms the night
Everything is beautiful now
So open up your eyes, fall into the light
Everything is beautiful now

I'll post a byzantine hymn from Orthodox church.

It's called: "Tον Κύριον υμνείτε" (=praise the Lord). The lyrics are in ancient Greek

It reminds me mainly the creation of Narnia (and video helps to that).

"Sanctus" from Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living tends to remind me of the mighty, joyful conclusion to the Last Battle.
It's easy to imagine the great, unspeakable transformation of Aslan hearing this music; it has a strong sense of finality and righteousness to it, just like the Real Narnia. Definitely worth a listen!

I had never heard it. That was very nice Cleander!


About "The Horse and his Boy" I choose this when Shasta escapes with the horse, and new horizons are opening up for him.

If HHB had a theme I think that would be this.

Awesome choices, Dimitris! (I like that your pick for the main theme was actually written by Harry Gregson-Williams! :D )

Harry Gregson-Williams is a great composer! One of my favorites.

Wow! There are a lot of great songs in this thread!

I definitely agree. :)

I've always loved "Untame Lion" by Michelle Tumes. It reminds me of when Lucy mets Aslan in Prince Caspian."In Like a Lion (Always Winter)" by Relient K is another favorite. I believe it was supposed to be on the Music Inspired by the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe but didn't make the cut. I love this one because it really captures the feeling of how the Narnians must've felt with it being always winter and never Christmas.

One Narnia-themed song I randomly discovered was "My Name Is Eustace" by Benjamin Dunn and Friends. It caught my eye because the title had Eustace in it, so I listened to it and found that it was definitely about Eustace. I like this song because it has a different feel to it, yet it captures what Eustace went through.

"Believe" by Josh Groban really fits Lucy, I think, even though it was written for The Polar Express.
