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 The Power of Love, 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.
Some of these link to 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 and adjust the time accordingly.
Expect unmarked spoilers in the descriptions.
Note: When posting links to YouTube here, make sure to strip their URLs of all unnecessary fragments - the ?v=oHg5SJYRHA0 parameter is the only one needed, really. It's not recommended to post links to Youtube here due to Screwed by the Lawyers syndrome, unless the tracks were officially (or automatically) uploaded as part of the artist's channel. 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).
