(I wanted a more interesting title than just "What kind of music would...")
I've always had a thing for music (even though I can't play an instrument to save my life), and Avatar undoubtedly has one of the best original soundtracks out of all movies. But of course, those are all original songs, so that got me thinking a bit. Eventually, I found three original songs (plus one from the Avatar OST) that in a sequence, pretty much summarizes the whole movie.
- Waking Up - OneRepublic
- Jake's First Flight - James Horner (Avatar OST)
- Vox Populi - 30 Seconds to Mars
- This Is War - 30 Seconds to Mars
I'd suggest anyone to try listening to that in sequence and see what I mean
In short, what specific contemporary songs would fit in (read: represent certain scenes/relationships/settings) well with the movie?
