Music is such a big part of what makes a trailer worth watching and can really help make a movie look better than it actually might end up being. There have been a few songs that no matter what trailer they are in the song itself just makes it look better. Then there are those songs that you have never heard before and it just instantly catches your attention. It does not happen too often, but sometimes you might discover a new band that you have not listened to before.
This list is specifically looking at songs done by known artists and not music that is a variation on a musical theme of the movie. Every one knows that when you listen to the Star Wars theme that you are going to get excited, but having a song that just immediately hits you can be so satisfying.

Title from ABC’s Castle
David and I love the show Castle. It is one that we will usually take the time to watch every week and will re-watch past seasons. Nathon Fillion is what initially brought us to the show, but the character of Richard Castle is so much fun to watch and his interaction with Kate are fantastic. Usually what happens is there is a crime, usually a murder, and Castle comes up with a pretty outlandish theory involving the most complex option possible because it is what would make for a good story. In the end the show usually proves Castle completely wrong and we find out that there is a simple explanation for everything that has happened. In the last couple of seasons they have subtly been ramping up some of the intrigue.
In season 5 we got introduced to Castle’s father in an amazing two part episode. We find out that Castle’s dad is apparently the blackest of black ops spies who actually pulls off the crazy antics that Castle dreams about in his stories. It is a great introduction and begins to open the idea of antics that are beyond belief for most people, but still grounded in reality. This season they have amped things up even more. They first introduced the idea of time travel in episode five of this current season and unlike other times they never explained it away. Then in this most recent episode they introduced the idea of telekinetics, they explain away some of the stuff, but there are things that are left open to the possibilities. So what does this mean for future Castle and why did they choose to do it? Continue reading
