The Battle - Gladiator (2000)
Composed by Hans Zimmer
Hans Zimmer is completely self taught. Gladiator was nominated for best score at the Academy Awards in 2001, but lost to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
The scene in which this track plays, the battle in Germania, took 20 days to film. The forest in which they filmed in Surrey, England was originally set for deforestation. Ridley Scott offered the Royal Forestry Commission to burn it for them, and they accepted. (x) (x) (x)

saying feminism is unnecessary because you don’t feel oppressed is like saying fire extinguishers are unnecessary because your house isn’t on fire
He enters Rome like a conquering hero. But what has he conquered?
footloose // kenny loggins
i’ll hit the ceiling
or else i’ll tear up this town
So we talk about ourselves in hell
To forget the love we never felt
All the old jokes that work so well
Universal truth was a moment’s lie
this song is very important.
