An entry for a complete album that is out of place just for a trailer music ?

Aww come on, i can list around 30 albums that contains the "Pilentze Pee" track. And no one is related to the db.
You guys are really killing this place.

Yeah, but this still isn't as bad as those B-Boy Park albums, which literally don't even contain a single track related to ANYTHING, and we keep them in here.

Yes, I'm still on that Seriously though.

Suppose it not a bad thing to have this here; after all Xenogears, Song to Fly, Alone in the Dark and Halo 4 feature this style of choir.

And Christopher Tin's second album with also feature Great Voices of Bulgaria

I'll agree with Myrkul for once () - there's just way too much stuff that's barely related to vgm or anime that gets submitted here lately. Too much original work, doijin touhou remixes and things like that. I don't want to offend anyone or to sound like a purist but it seems like the rules get stretched a bit too far.
Who knows, maybe a couple years down the road a Lady Gaga album will find its place here.

Isn't this the same group that performed those amazing vocals in Alone in the Dark?

Edit: Also, trailer music?

Yeah, it's like a music used in a trailer but not actually in the game.
It became popular to use music or songs from non-video game artists in game trailers. For example launch trailer of Dead Space 3 features a remix of "In the Air Tonight" by Phil Collins.
And therefore I insist on his Face Value album being added to the database! (sarcasm)

if it's that music used in the trailer is present on a lot of other albums
I think it should be deleted, nobody will start adding any albums just for one plain song

about b-boy, don't know why hellacia spoke about it as an example, but it could be deleted too
actually, why not deleting the whole database and starting over =)

I looked for the song you guys are talking about and I'd never heard it before. If someone's used it then they must've used a heavily distorted sample or somesuch.

And as much as I like this choir, I don't think this should be here.

Oh yeah, I just remembered something else about the whole music trailer thing - Britney Spears' song "Overprotected" was used in JP TV commercials for Otogi: Myth of Demons.

TV AD 1 - youtube
TV AD 2 - youtube

Was pretty unusual at the time.
