You might try "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff for chorus and orchestra. It's been used a lot for commercials, and for the Olympics, it's on a CD from the Atlanta games in '96.

I believe this is a classical piece, it sounds like one. I think it has been used in movie trailers, I don't recall which ones exactly. But I think it was also used for a NASCAR on FOX commercial. The melody I'm presenting wasn't played in the commercial, but I think its part of the same song. If it isn't, then forget about the commercial.

 search Musipedia for this

The melody above may not be accurate as to which notes are used and whether there are any that are flat or sharp. But the described melody above is sung out by a choir. Listening to it, its almost like a big battle is about to start or something catastrophic is about to happen. If you're still clueless, a similar melody is played in episode 109 of Sailor Moon, in the uncut japanese version at least. Its right around when the monster says her name after the 'evil' professor creates her, I'd say around 1/4 of the way into the episode.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
