This book has been in progress since 2012, so there’s a whole amalgamation of music…
Gabriella Cilmi – “On a Mission“
Livi’s theme (I wrote her opening scenes to it). I wish I could link you guys to the old Buffy vid done to this song.
If you think I’m scared, you must be tripping//Foot on gas, key in ignition//Can’t stop now ’cause I’m on a mission//I am a woman on a mission//Nothing can stop me, I’m stronger than ever
Martina Topley-Bird – “I Only Have Eyes for You“
There’s a dance scene mentioning this song–this was the version I’d listened to.
U2 – “Elevation”
Of course I was going to have songs from my Tomb Raider soundtrack.
Radiohead – “Fake Plastic Trees“
It’s not actually on this book’s soundtrack, it’s in reference to something in Livi’s backstory (a joke that’s not entirely a joke).
Graeme Revell – “Stone Monkey Battle“
It was less stone monkeys and more the early serpent-dragon battles in the caves.
Immediate Music – “Prometheus Rising”
Livi drops down the pitch to save Laurel.
Two Steps from Hell – “Mercy in Darkness“
Livi locks eyes with the tiger.
Immediate Music – “Serenata Immortale”
A Livi theme.
Peter Connelly & Martin Iveson – “Angel of Darkness (Main Theme)“
Troel Brun Folmann – “Tomb Raider: Underworld (Main Theme)“
Yes, I went through all the Tomb Raider themes I had, shut up.
Troel Brun Folmann – “Tomb Raider: Legend (Main Theme)”
ALL the Tomb Raider themes. This was actually in a lot of the Ethiopia scenes.
Troel Brun Folmann – “Tomb Raider: Anniversary (Main Theme)”
As was this.
Immediate Music – “An Epic Age“
Wrote the Livi-fights-a-dragon to this one, the chapter Drakon Rising. You can hear the moment at 1:01 where Momma Drakon opens her eye, and 2:19 when Livi…yeah, you’ll see. 😉
Jason Graves – “Calling for Help“
In the caves.
Destiny’s Child – “Survivor“
Look, Livi basically has my running playlist.
I’m a survivor//I’m not gon’ give up//I’m not gon’ stop//I’m gon’ work harder
E.S. Posthumus – “Elba“
When Livi arrives in the villa at the end.
E.S. Posthumus – “Menouthis“
More villa battle.
And, finally, the series’ theme for my two favourites:
OneRepublic – “Something I Need“
I hope you’re ready for Solomon’s Seal on Tuesday! You can pre-order everywhere books are sold.
