Favorite HTTYD soundtrack cue

The fact is, practically every song in the album is noteworthy! Obviously, Test Drive is a clear winner, but I find it's even more powerful along with the visuals (the same goes for Forbidden Friendship). I feel that New Tail and See You Tomorrow are much stronger stand-alone pieces, but of course they're definitely enhanced by the actual scenes. I consider these four songs the "core four" because they're sequential and they keep the middle of the movie moving forward.

New Tail is a personal favorite, because it weaves Hiccup's theme (also heard in The Downed Dragon and Ready the Ships) and the adventurous theme (heard in This is Berk, This Time for Sure, and Astrid Goes For a Spin). Moreover, both themes are portrayed in their strongest form in New Tail. Maybe I'm just biased because it's the only track I can play in its entirety on guitar. :$

Test Drive, I think you mean. :D
What should I write on my signature? Hmm...
I am a Httyd, Gravity Falls and Portal (One and two) fan.
I'm also a bookworm and an introvert.
That was pretty random, but that's me summed up in two sentences.

1. Forbidden Friendship
This piece of music is not only my favourite HTTYD soundtrack cue, it's the best thing I've ever listened to. Whenever I hear this song I start crying just because it's beautiful.
2. Test Drive
The Test Drive theme fits perfect to the scene. It gives you the Feeling of flying, but still sounds powerful enough to be a dragon's theme. Many other "Flying Themes" are calmer and less powerful, so they fit birds more and a song like e. g. "Flying" from the "Rio" score, would have sounded weird for Toothless' flight.
3. The Downed Dragon
This cue gives me chills whenever I listen to it. It has the right amount of tension for the first meeting of Hiccup and Toothless.

Night Fury: The unholy offspring of lightning and death itself.

Nothing is in this signature, except this sentence describing that there is nothing in this signature.

Seriously, I, [INSERT USERNAME HERE] have nothing to say here. Continue on with your viewing of not-so regularly scheduled posts.


Sorry to interrupt, I just wanna say....uh...what was I trying to say again? Never mind, continue reading.

(As Not Seen on TV)

With respect to the movie: "Forbidden Friendship"

Independently from the movie: "The Kill Ring" (because it's just so well written in multiple viewpoints)
