Vocabulary

Music

"Epic Trailer Music"

Fall- Ross Bugden

Fall created by Ross Bugden on YouTube is a great fit for Legend. This song connects with Legend because it has a chase theme to it and could be used when the "cat and mouse game" between Day and June continues. Also this song would be perfect for an upcoming movie!
