Locus Trilogy Soundtrack

Off the back of the post about using msic for writing, these are the songs I use to set my mood when writing various scenes for the Locus Trilogy (Expedition at the moment):

General theme - Ellie Goulding: Home
I think it catches the wistfullness of the characters

Other theme - Assassins Creed Rogue: Title
The calm before the storm music, when I want the writing to be a little... gentler:

Looking forwards to Expedition and unnamed third.

The main bad guy anthem - Lourde: Everybody Wants to Rule the World
The general creepiness he brings to proceedings

Laurie Reynolds and Jack Cohen - Clannad: I Will Find You.
It'd be spoilers as to why this one is in there but the titles a clue.

Karl Grayson - The White Buffalo: I Know You
Spoilers again, but a bad guy hunting a worse guy.
Halo Wars 2 - Official E3 Trailer Song (The White Buffalo - I Know You) (Trailer Version)

Heather Slater and Liam Kendricks - Adele: Set Fire to the Rain
When Slater gets angry... it doesn't end well for whoevers on the receiving end... but Kendricks may grow to have a moderating influance... sometimes.
Adele - Set Fire To The Rain (Live at The Royal Albert Hall)

Mack's Theme - Assasins Creed Black Flag - Main Theme
I must admit, I have a hell of a soft spot for Mack. Probably as she is the only character without a side and therefore the one I'd most want to hang out with for as beer (and knowing her, probably a hell of a lot of shots). She's my roguish pilot and simply handles whatever is thrown at her... or does she. Sorry for what I've done to you, Mack. Anyway, this music captures her fun optimism...
Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag - Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag Main Theme (Track 01)

I think it's no coincidence that Assasins Creed tracks features twice... they do thematic music VERY well.
