That music

I've been trying to find this piece of music forever it seems and never had any luck. I've heard it a thousand times in various movie trailers and award shows (it's a popular piece of music) so all my associations with it were dead ends. When I happened upon a youtube video the other day that used it in the background, I played it for my audio-geek brother and set him to the task of figuring it out for me. He did. And I never would have guessed what it actually came from... Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. It's called "Victory at Ed Parker's" and you'll recognize it about 1/2 to 2/3 the way into it.

It might be a fine film (I've never seen it), but I really expected the music to be from some epic Academy Award winning film. My brother was surprised as I was when he finally figured it out.

I know. So familiar, right? I could never figure it out because it's been used in too many other things. So relieved to finally know what it is and actually have it :)

That is awfully familiar sounding. Seriously, "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story"? 'Cause I've seen that movie, and I'd never have figured.

There's a few bits of music that appear again and again in trailers. I think that one bit from "Aliens" is one of them.

Yeah, I've got the whole "Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story" soundtrack now. There are a couple other tracks that that use this music in the score, but "Victory at Ed Parker's" seemed the most familiar rendition. I may have to see the movie.

I just sampled the Aliens soundtrack at iTunes, but none of the music jumped out at me and something I've heard used a lot. Only getting 30-second samples, though.

I may have to see the movie.
It's actually pretty good for a "Blank: The Blank Blank Story" movie. The fight scenes were rather impressive, and Lee had an interesting life.


I checked Wikipedia and it seems that I wasn't misremembering about the Aliens music popping up in trailers. I'm just not sure which song in particular.
