I'm looking for that cheesy inspiring movie trailer music
January 10, 2014 1:00 PM   Subscribe

I am looking for examples for that cheesy "inspirational movie" music that you might see in a Hollywood movie trailer. Usually it accompanies some kind of tagline like, "He didn't know that helping one dog...would send him on the journey...of a lifetime." One example is here at 20 seconds of this trailer. That stirring music that is meant to emotionally manipulate you - can you help me find various versions of it? Thanks.

Peter Gabriel's "Solsbury Hill"? See the "Shining" trailer for parodic effect.

Does this list of frequently-used trailer music help?

This part of Dragonheart: To the Stars seems to be in a million inspirational movie trailers.

If you hit youtube and search "inspirational trailer" you get a whole bunch of that stuff. You could probably find a few that have the exact sound you want and google the movie score details.
