Looking for in-game music suggestions for the engine to play, I am making a custom/personal audio setup with different themes from other popular media things like TV Shows, Movies and Videos Games but also a few things that just fit the VC setting, so far I have:

If I Had a Heart by Fever Ray - Outnumbered/Defeated in Battle
Black Sails Theme Song - Sneaking into town (short version)/Battle (extended version), Taverns/Feasts (short version)
He is a Pirate (Pirates of the Caribbean Theme) - Victorious Battle/Sneaking Into a Town
Game of Thrones Theme Song - Traveling, Taverns/Feasts, Sneaking into a town
Over the Misty Mountains - Taverns/Feasts
Over the Misty Mountains non vocal - Traveling, Villages
Nerevar Rising (Elder Scrolls 3 Theme) -  Villages
Elder Scrolls IV Theme - Villages

Edit:
What we need is a hero - Game Menu Intro, Tournaments, Battle, Outnumbered in Battle
Song of the Dragonborn - Outnumbered in Battle
Dragon Age Theme - Travel, Monastaries
Dragon Age 2 Theme - Travel, Monastaries
Braveheart Theme by James Horner (RIP) - Defeated in Battle, Travel, Villages
Promontory (Last of the Mohicans Theme) - Villages
O Fortuna - Outnumbered in Battle, Defeated in Battle
Anvil of Crom (Conan the Barbarian Theme) - Game Menu Intro, Travel, Tournaments
Isengard Theme - Battle, Outnumbered in Battle, Defeated in Battle
Concerning Hobbits - Villages, Travel, Taverns/Feasts
Ballad of Roland - Travel, Villages
Old Pirate - Travel, Tournaments
Boadicea - Travel, Villages
The Skye Boat Song (Outlander Theme) Instrumental - Travel, Villages
The Dragonborn Comes Instrumental (Malukah cover) - Travel, Taverns/Feasts

No doubt some of these gave you a good chuckle. So what would you add along the lines of popular themes from TV/Movies/Games that I have left out?

Too obvious.
Nice addition, but while the words fit the setting I feel that at risk of sounding like a grumpy old man the 'shouty' heavy metal nature does not. If I would add  a song from them it would probably be Carolus Rex, mainly because it is one of my favorites from them but it was discounted for similar reasons.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Pretty much anything from Adrian von Ziegler.

Nice find, I had already considered a number of these, but found them too long and slow paced.

I am considering some of these at the moment for battle or traveling music:

I will probably only use one, if any, they seem too... 'Halo'ish.

Aside from those, these have already been added to the engine's list:
What we need is a hero - Game Menu Intro, Tournaments, Battle, Outnumbered in Battle
Song of the Dragonborn - Outnumbered in Battle
Dragon Age Theme - Travel, Monastaries
Dragon Age 2 Theme - Travel, Monastaries
Braveheart Theme by James Horner (RIP) - Defeated in Battle, Travel, Villages
Promontory (Last of the Mohicans Theme) - Villages
O Fortuna - Outnumbered in Battle, Defeated in Battle
Anvil of Crom (Conan the Barbarian Theme) - Game Menu Intro, Travel, Tournaments
Isengard Theme - Battle, Outnumbered in Battle, Defeated in Battle
Concerning Hobbits - Villages, Travel, Taverns/Feasts

Thank you for your reply.

try some music by rapalje, it's a dutch band with celtic themes. also, the intro of this song is really atmospheric. also, their song "de kop foardel" is a really nice song. it's sung in frisian, so it's almost anglosaxon.

It's later medieval folk but I personnally enjoy it a lot, First one could be nice for the battle map

and the next one for the campaign map

Adding Morrigan's song to the campaign roster works pretty well also.

These are great finds, especially the first.

Added it as a travel (campaign map) and villages theme 1 (norse theme).

Happy to help. Putting 'Villemann og Magnhild' in the norse village scene seems a pretty good idea, eager to see that pack coming.

Oh, you mean as in posted here for download? A lot of if not all of those tracks are copyrighted, it would be illegal for me to do so, I was just looking for opinions to expand on my personal list to see what others liked or used themselves.
