Songs that Remind you of Narnia

That's so cool that you wrote music inspired by The Last Battle, King Erlian.

"How Far I'll Go" from the movie "Moana" reminds me of several Narnian Characters, like Caspian, Reepicheep and Shasta, who have always felt that they didn't belong where they grew up and were destined to live somewhere else.

I've been staring at the edge of the water
Long as I can remember
Never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water
No matter how hard I try

Every turn I take
Every trail I track
Every path I make
Every road leads back to the place I know
Where I cannot go
Where I long to be

(This next part is really evocative of Reepicheep's story in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.)
See the light where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
No one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
If I go there's just no telling how far I'll go

I know everybody on this island
Seems so happy on this island
Everything is by design
I know everybody on this island
Has a role on this island
So maybe I could roll with mine

I can lead with pride
I can make us strong
I'll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me

See the light as it shines on the sea
It's blinding
But no one knows how deep it goes
And it seems like it's calling out to me
So come find me
And let me know
What's beyond that line
Will I cross that line

See the light where the sky meets the sea
It calls me
And no one knows how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
How far I'll go

For better or worse-for who knows what may unfold from a chrysalis?-hope was left behind.
-The God Beneath the Sea by Leon Garfield & Edward Blishen

The song "Obstacles" by Syd Matters reminds me of Narnia. I guess it also reminds me of childhood in general...enjoying childhood, knowing worries are coming, but saving them for adulthood and enjoying the moment now.

Let's say sunshine for everyone
But as far as I can remember
We've been migratory animals
Living under changing weather

Someday we will foresee Obstacles
Through the blizzard, through the blizzard
Today we will sell our uniform
Live together, live together.

Blizzard
Blizzard
Blizzard
Blizzard
Blizzard...

We played hide and seek in waterfalls
We were younger, we were younger.
We played hide&seek in waterfalls
We were younger, we were younger.
We played hide&seek in waterfalls
We were younger, we were younger.
We played hide&seek in waterfalls
We were younger, we were younger.

Someday we will foresee Obstacles
Through the blizzard, through the blizzard.

"Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!"

The song at the very end of Prince Caspian, The Call by Regina Spektor. I don't know if it was written for the film or not, but it males my cry and be almost hopeful everytime.

Let's keep this thread going!

I saw 'Further Up/Further In' by MyEpic mentioned earlier on this thread - incidentally, my signature is a line from that song.

Also, I think that 'Not Over Yet' by For King and Country really fits.
The second verse is especially Narnian-sounding.

'Oh, game set match
It's time to put it in your past, oh
Feel the winter leaving
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart (here we are)
Cheers to a brand new start (here we are)
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom'

This is the journey
This is the trial
For the hero inside us all
I can hear adventure call

I'll post a byzantine hymn from Orthodox church.

It's called: "Tον Κύριον υμνείτε" (=praise the Lord). The lyrics are in ancient Greek

It reminds me mainly the creation of Narnia (and video helps to that).

"Sanctus" from Dan Forrest's Requiem for the Living tends to remind me of the mighty, joyful conclusion to the Last Battle.
It's easy to imagine the great, unspeakable transformation of Aslan hearing this music; it has a strong sense of finality and righteousness to it, just like the Real Narnia. Definitely worth a listen!

I had never heard it. That was very nice Cleander!

About "The Horse and his Boy" I choose this when Shasta escapes with the horse, and new horizons are opening up for him.

If HHB had a theme I think that would be this.

Awesome choices, Dimitris! (I like that your pick for the main theme was actually written by Harry Gregson-Williams! :D )

Wow! There are a lot of great songs in this thread!

I definitely agree. :)

I've always loved "Untame Lion" by Michelle Tumes. It reminds me of when Lucy mets Aslan in Prince Caspian."In Like a Lion (Always Winter)" by Relient K is another favorite. I believe it was supposed to be on the Music Inspired by the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe but didn't make the cut. I love this one because it really captures the feeling of how the Narnians must've felt with it being always winter and never Christmas.

One Narnia-themed song I randomly discovered was "My Name Is Eustace" by Benjamin Dunn and Friends. It caught my eye because the title had Eustace in it, so I listened to it and found that it was definitely about Eustace. I like this song because it has a different feel to it, yet it captures what Eustace went through.

"Believe" by Josh Groban really fits Lucy, I think, even though it was written for The Polar Express.

Lately, I have had this song on my mind.  It's called Salvage and it's by a super gifted songwriter called Brett Lee Miller.

For some reason, the song really reminds me of Eustace's undragoning and subsequent transformation in the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.  

There aren't even any written copies of the lyrics online, which goes to show just how off-the-beaten-path the song is!

Super beautiful though.

"Marvelous Things" by Eisley always makes me think of Narnia. Apart from a possible MN reference i.e. "I woke the dawn / Saw horses growing out the lawn" (and their lead singer Sherri Dupree-Bemis has said she loves the Narnia book and even has a Lucy and Tumnus tattoo), this song reminds me of the 2007-08 era. It was the time when PC anticipation was in full swing and the time when I discovered both NarniaWeb and Eisley, so it all became associated in my mind.
