The music of DragonAge perfectly matches the epic scale of the game, from the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxkO9Q85EaA opening theme]] to the epilogue.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=17iacDJdRFU Tavern Brawl.]] The name speaks for itself.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fqf-iZv6Zg Ferelden at War]], which plays during the battle at Ostagar. The subdued opening slowly builds tension as the darkspawn come out of the forest until the armies finally charge. The sequence is bookended by the equally awesome [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0L1GZdlM9B8 The Betrayal]].
* The origin themes, especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcfSN9DQKOw Human Nobility]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z74J0mq284M Elves at the Mercy of Men]], a sad piece that fits in well with the overall feel of the Alienage.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BzYiqBj_GPY The Party Camp]]. It's only a little minute-long snippet, but it's beautiful. Especially considering that the camp is where you will end up having most actual conversations with your party members, which means this is the song that plays during many of the game's more emotional moments.
** It's odd how the vocals in that piece always seem to arrive at the right moment during your conversations with party members.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eo1E_aQ7ZY Ruins of Ostagar]] perfectly conveys the enormity of the place and the grandeur it once had. NOTE: Despite being called "Ruins of Ostagar" on the soundtrack CD, this theme is never used in the Ostagar scenes. It is actually the ''Orzammar'' theme, and is used there. The actual ''Ostagar'' theme can be heard during the first 40 seconds of the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5zIa4m0tmI "Betrayal"]] track on the soundtrack CD.
* The theme from the VideoGame/DragonAgeII trailers, especially at the end. That wonderfully inspiring track playing as Hawke stomps towards the camera, ready to kick ass? That alone should sell you on the game.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPajZ0074Ks This Is War]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJiyivcQb1k In Uthenera]].
* The second part of the Dragon Age 2 credits, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LbOl7zoZHOw&feature=related Rogue Heart]], is absolutely beautiful.
** And its counterpart, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yuz5cubKvZ8 Mage Pride]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jG4iUOngNXw Arishok Battle]] theme is pretty epic. Good thing too, because you'll be hearing it a lot considering he's ThatOneBoss.
* Not from the games, but inspired by them: MiracleOfSound's [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/miracle-of-sound/2965-Age-of-the-Dragon-Dragon-Age-2-Song Through The Age Of The Dragon]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSCq7jTL7tQ Fenris' Theme]]. Beautiful, melancholic, and suits the character perfectly.
* The ''Destiny'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32rH0OhqxQY trailer theme]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUusiRBqtco Vigil's Keep Combat]], from the ''Awakening'' expansion.
* From Origins: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CdKwLkEGjhg "I Am The One."]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAANKFPchtA Leliana's Song]][[hottip:*:Just the song.]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oy6fC0zJCRk at the party camp]]. Now you know why they call her a bard. It made it into the soundtrack album, and for good reason.
* The Grey Wardens 'Calling' trailer has some very understated music and an awesome voiceover that transitions into kickass, throatshredding metal. Can be found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0olSKafPoQA here.]]
