->''[W]hen Thorin struck [his harp] the music began all at once, so sudden and sweet that Bilbo forgot everything else, and was swept away into dark lands under strange moons, far over The Water and very far from his hobbit-hole under The Hill.''
-->-- '''Creator/JRRTolkien''', ''Literature/TheHobbit''

This is what music recording and listening technology, from phonautographs to wax drums and gramophones to [=MIDIs=], [=MP3s=], and [=WAVs=], was invented for.

A selection of music that is just... awesome. It brings the moment to life! It compels you to do your best, to collect them all, to use ThePowerOfLove, or just look in shock.

It can come from unexpected places, it can come from a genre of music that you thought you hated. It is the reward for the work, the finishing touch, it is Awesome Music.

See also ClimacticMusic, AwardBaitSong, ThemeMusicPowerUp, VillainSong, EarWorm, ThePowerOfRock and MusicOfNote. Often the whipped cream and cherry on top for AwesomeMoments.

Some of these link to Website/YouTube, so if you wish to listen to them in stereo, add "&hd=1" to the link without the quotation marks. (Or, on the video player, change the resolution to 480p or higher.) If you want to link to a specific part, add the following to the link: "&t=1m10s"[[note]]This example would make the video in question start at 1 minute and 10 seconds (1:10) instead of at the beginning.[[/note]] and adjust the time accordingly.

Contrast [[Horrible/{{Music}} the Music subpage]] of DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible.

Note: When posting links to Website/YouTube here, make sure to strip their [=URLs=] of all unnecessary fragments - the [[RickRoll ?v=oHg5SJYRHA0]] parameter is the only one needed, really. It's not recommended to post links to Youtube here due to ScrewedByTheLawyers syndrome. It's better to post webpages of artists themselves due to less regional restrictions there, or at least their official accounts on streaming websites (Bandcamp in particular is a plus, since you can usually listen to the track and then purchase it or the album it's on to support the artist).
