  1. LP

    LP Lost One You

    For some reason, Trent and Rachel leading up to their relationship

  2. Only-More-Love

    R.E.M. – World Leader Pretend, for Trent as he is later in the series.

    Trent and Rachel
    1. The heart won’t lie- by Reba McEntire and Vince Gill
    2. Head over feet- by Alanis Morissette
    3. You Shouldnt Kiss Me Like This- by Toby Keith

  4. tj

    I think Good Man by devour the day describes trent really well

  5. Ariel

    The Reason by Hoobastank – Trent/Rachel

  6. Keegan

    Everybody wants to rule the world by tears for fears

  7. lavinia68

    Breakdown- Seether; Trent/ Rachel relationship, how she sees him at face value, but he wants her to look deeper

  8. lavinia68

    Private Hell- Alice in Chains

  9. I have a couple … 🙂 Most of these are at least a little Trent / Rachel, but they skew more towards Trent’s POV.

    “The High Road” by Three Day’s Grace
    (Reminds me of Trent struggling to find his way through to be who he wants to be and the influence that Rachel has had on that process, especially as of the end of EA.) [“Will you help me find the right way up? Or let me take the wrong way down? Will you straighten me out or make me take the long way around? …”] 🙂

    “Drown in You” by Daughtry
    (Trent / Rachel. I think both are a little worried about getting sucked in too deep by the other, but most of the song works best from Trent’s POV, as he’s the one with the responsibilities and city ties that try to pull him under).

    “Going Under” by Trapt
    (Another Rachel / Trent song :D)

  10. SLynn

    Lucky by Bif Naked
    Crystal by Stevie Nicks

  11. So i was listening to my ipod this morning and Not Enough by Lacuna Coil came on, and for some reason Trent and Rachel popped into my head.

  12. Anima

    „my man is a mean man” by Stefanie Heinzmann
    reminds me of Trent and Rachel =)

  13. I’m not entirely sure why, but ‘Fake It’ by Seether makes me think of Trent.

  14. yvonne crosby

    Cant believe no one suggested Kings of Leon Use Somebody. its perfect for Trent’s feelings for Rachel and hopefully before the end of the series we can add Sex on Fire

  15. Sonya

    I can’t believe no one has thought of this classic for Trent with RachelI can’t believe no one has thought of this classic for Rachel and Trent. At first he was hiding the way he felt about her, but now it’s starting to come out a little at a time.

    “I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” by Elvis.

  16. sam

    paramore “playing god”
    “monster” “ignorance”

  17. Michelle B.

    I think the song “Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine On You” by Toby Keith may be another good one for Trent for when Trent is riding his horse under the moonlight possibly.

  18. John Holmes

    Drowning Pool – “Tear Away”

  19. Alyssa Danielle

    I think the song “I’ll Follow You Down” by Shinedown really fits for Trent and Rachel after reading APB. Symbolizes the feelings he’s devoloped for her and what he is willing to do for her even though she doesn’t see how much he really cares. Eh, call me a sap.. lol

  20. Dawn

    The connection that Trent and Rachel are slowly developing reminds me of this song…

  21. lavinia68

    “Here We Are” by Breaking Benjamin is perfect for Trent and Rachel’s relationship.

  22. kabella

    After finishing up Perfect Blood, this strikes me as a song for Trent and Rachel…….any Portishead really….

  23. Diva

    Apocalyptica (featuring Brent Smith) – “Not Strong Enough”

    Reminds me of Trent’s conflicting feelings about Rachel earlier in the series.

    • Diva

      Aargh! Hit “post” too soon. Anyway, this is another song by Apocalyptica – I Don’t Care – that also reminds me of early days Trent, back when Rachel first walzted back into his life and started to turn it all on its ear. 🙂 Back when he was starting to care more than he thought he should.

    • purrfectkatus

      Diva you are my type of reader. Apocalyptica is my favorite. Hall of the Mountain King is right up there. Watch the video of them playing it. It leaves you feeling like you have just been on a run with Rachel or after she just had a run in with a demon. Pure Adrenaline.

    • Diva

      That’s a great choice too! *high five*

    • Alyssa Danielle

      Oh my gosh, I so have to agree! Perfect..

    • This actually speaks more to me of Ivy. It seems to describe her inner battle against what Piscary has twisted her into almost perfectly.

    • Sorry, the location of my post made my comment a bit vague. I was referring to ‘Not Strong Enough’. 😉

  24. Jenn S

    “Superdeformed” by Matthew Sweet. On the outside Trent seems suave, sophisticated, and well, perfect. Once you can see beneath the cool veneer, he is “twisted and turned”, like in the song. Again dark and edgy, goes with the atmosphere of the Hallows.

  25. Jen Beau

    I think ‘Unintended’ by Muse is a great tune for Trent/Rache…especially after reading APB and watching them grow closer to…. hmmm! 🙂

  26. Stacey

    “What would happen” by Meredith Brooks for Trent/Rach

  27. Melody

    iris by The Goo Goo Dolls is SO fitting from Trent to Rachel after reading APB. I never really liked that song until I read this latest book, but it fits perfectly.

  28. I like Sweet Dreams by Marilyn Manson for Trent and Rachel. It is dark and seductive, so i think it fits.

  29. Michaela

    lana del rey – million dollar man

  30. Grace10Hove

    I think that Foxy Foxy by Rob Zombie would be some what accurate pertaining to Tent and Rachel’s relationship. Maybe?

  31. Diva

    Dark Side by Kelly Clarkson, which I thinks works equally well from both Trent or Rachel’s POV.

    There’s a place that I know
    It’s not pretty there and few have ever gone
    If I show it to you now
    Will it make you run away?

    Or will you stay
    Even if it hurts?
    Even if I try to push you out
    Will you return?
    And remind me who I really am
    Please remind me who I really am

    Everybody’s got a dark side
    Do you love me?
    Can you love mine?
    Nobody’s a picture perfect
    But we’re worth it
    You know that we’re worth it

    Will you love me?
    Even with my dark side?

    Like a diamond
    From black dust
    It’s hard to know what can become
    If you give up
    So don’t give up on me
    Please remind me who I really am

    Everybody’s got a dark side
    Do you love me?
    Can you love mine?
    Nobody’s a picture perfect
    But we’re worth it
    You know that we’re worth it

    Will you love me?
    Even with my dark side?

    • Alyssa Danielle

      Yeah, I love this song and you’re right. It’s great for them. You go get her, Trent! lol

  32. Diva

    “Break Me Down” by Red makes me think of Trent, especially at the end of Pale Demon and how Kim keeps saying that Trent has his back against the wall heading into the next book.

    A long day alone
    Emptiness is so real
    Never having peace of mind
    Running from what I can’t see
    And there is nowhere left to hide
    Turn and face these empty eyes
    All alone, heart untold
    Trying to find

    Break me down replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find
    I want to shine
    I want to rise
    Break me down

    I try to find myself
    I find the stranger trapped inside
    And I’ll take one more step away
    From the face I used to recognize
    Familiar shadows closing in
    Suffocating fear descends
    It comes alive, uncovered eyes

    I’m trying to find
    Break me down replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find
    I want to shine
    I want to rise
    Break me down

    Replace this fear inside
    Take this nothingness from me
    I want to find
    I want to shine
    I want to rise
    Break me down

    Break me down
    I want to find
    I want to shine
    I want to rise
    Break me down [repeat]

    Break me!

  33. Sinah

    foo fighters – the one .
    white stripes – fell in love with a girl

  34. Curry

    I think that Breaking Benjamin’s “Blow me Away” is perfect for Trent and how far he will go to save the elves

  35. “You Know I’m No Good” by Amy Winehouse… mmmmm! So good for Trent & Rachel…!

  36. Michaela

    “Give a little more” by Maroon 5 (with Rachel)

  37. Carolyn Peabody

    idk why but Kanye West’s “Heartless” makes me think of Ellasbeth and Trents relationship when they were together….

  38. angel stokes

    all american rejects (gives you hell) I love this song and the vedio is funny.check it out

  39. I think of Trent when I listen to Billy Idol’s “Hot In The City” 🙂

  40. Diva

    After A Pale Demon, I definitely agree with “Killing Me Softly With His Song” for the scene where Trent is singing Rachel’s soul into a bottle.

    “Strumming my pain with his fingers
    Singing my life with his words
    Killing me softly with his song
    Killing me softly with his song
    Telling my whole life with his words
    Killing me softly with his song”

  41. Erica

    “Bleed” by Evanescence could go with either Trent and Rachel or Ivy and Rachel
    I don’t know if it was ever released on an album, but you can find it on youtube

  42. Noreen

    Disturbed: The Game

    This would be for Trent and Rachel

  43. Sara S.

    secrets by one republic

    Reminds me of trent trying to make up to rachel throughout the series, slowly trying to change and trusting her more and sharing more secrets. This song would probably be him at the end of pale demon..

  44. Sara S.

    Handlebars by Flobots

    Some of the lyrics that scream TRENT to me:

    Look at me
    Look at me
    Driving and I won’t stop
    And it feels so good to be
    Alive and on top
    My reach is global
    My tower secure
    My cause is noble
    My power is pure
    I can hand out a million vaccinations
    Or let’em all die in exasperation
    Have’em all healed of their lacerations
    Have’em all killed by assassination
    I can make anybody go to prison
    Just because I don’t like’em and
    I can do anything with no permission
    I have it all under my command
    I can guide a missile by satellite
    By satellite
    By satellite
    and I can hit a target through a telescope
    Through a telescope
    Through a telescope
    and I can end the planet in a holocaust
    In a holocaust
    In a holocaust

  45. Danielle

    Burn by Papa Roach idk why exactly but everytime I hear it I think of him

  46. zonkedout

    Fyfe Dangerfield – She’s always a woman

    I first heard this version of this song just after reading Black Magic Sanction and just thought it fitted Trents changing perspective on Rachel. I thought it even more after reading the first chapter of Pale Demon but whether it still fits i don’t know, my budget is making me wat for the paperback before i read the rest:( Cant wait!

  47. Totally see this as a part of the last few Pale Demon chappies <3. And then just Trent and elves in general considering their power.

  48. Lamia

    I’m not sure if someone corrected you, but its Tricky – Excess not I Believe

  49. Evy

    Work both ways for Trent and Rachel,

    Carolina Liar – When you are near

  50. Thirty Seconds To Mars: The Kill

    I have a sneaking suspicion that most of the stuff he has been doing to “impress ceri” is really to impress Rachel…

    At the end of pale demon, after everything he had done to change/impress her, and after gaining her trust and finding himself, Rachel still doesn’t seem to be interested in him (so he thinks). 🙂

    I think this song might express some of his frustration/dying hope/willingness to change for her.

  51. Three Days Grace:

    Pain– reminds me of Trent trying to get someone to love him, trying to get Rachel’s trust, and “always there for her” incase she ever decides to work with him. And especially, of Pale Demon and Trent’s plan to save Rachel. 🙂

    You’re sick of feeling numb
    You’re not the only one
    I’ll take you by the hand
    And I’ll show you a world that you can understand
    This life is filled with hurt
    When happiness doesn’t work
    Trust me and take my hand
    When the lights go out you will understand

    Anger and agony
    Are better than misery
    Trust me I’ve got a plan
    When the lights go off you will understand

    I know That you’re wounded
    You know That I’m here to save you
    You know I’m always here for you
    I know That you’ll thank me later

    The deeper side to Trent that he mostly hides.

  52. Jan/Midwest

    Trent’s song to Rachel:
    Hero by Enrique Iglesias

    He’s so crushing on that girl.

  53. Meggie

    I’d have to say Metallica’s Black Album, over half the songs fit Trent’s personality; as well as how he gets along with Rachel.

    • LupusObscurum

      Hey Meggie,

      I completely agree with you…..though after reading Ever After I think we should add some from a few other MET Albums :O)

  54. Chantalz

    Alone by Heart

    This is definitely Trent’s song after reading the new book!!!

  55. Sandra

    The Eurythmics- “Sweet Dreams”

  56. Jason

    Also “Breaking The Law” by The Babies. Look them up on myspace!

  57. Jason

    How about “Popular” by Nada Surf

  58. Sharon Sayegh

    Oooh! Oooh! I want to add “Head Games” by Foreigner for Trent/Rachel. It really fits!

  59. Betti

    How about Voltaire’s-Wall of Pride for him and Rachal. You could have been my guide to the other side out of this hell I feel inside…..

  60. cookiemuncher

    mk ultra-muse
    the whole song is AMAZING but the chorus fits trent to the word:
    “how much deception can you take? how many lies will you create?”-those 2 lines alone fit him perfectly! check it out!

  61. Alex88

    Here i am-Bryan Adams

  62. chantal

    Euphoria by Collide. Haunting, seductive.

  63. “Wild Horses” by Charlotte Martin, Trent & Rachel.

  64. Ahahahaha. Kim you’re great!

    Placebo: “Special K” – Yeah. Brimstone? Greaaat!! 😀
    Puddle of Mud: “She Fucking Hates Me” (with Rachel) – LMFAO!

    Love your playlist! And I think, well.. since I read the books about 30 times now, I can recite them :’D.
    Hope you’re visiting your German fandom somehow.. and sometime. We would party! 🙂

  65. Sandra

    The Beatles- “I want you/ She’s so heavy” (with Rachel)

  66. Sorry about the repetitions 😮 Thought the comment would come in last, at the bottom of the page… My bad 🙂

  67. I love the series 🙂

    I can picture Trent, pacing his living room while vaguely listening to Roxy Music – “Avalon” (he knows it so well it hardly registers), and plotting… 😉

  68. Heather from AZ

    Mmmm, Gravity Kills, now there is a band you do not hear much about anymore. How you made Trent with this music makes him my favorite of all.

  69. Jen B.

    Trent to Rachel… “Save Me” by Aimee Mann.

  70. Sonya

    Also with Rachel
    “You make me sick” by Pink
    “The heart won’t lie” by Reba Mcentire and Vince Gill
    “No one else on earth” Wynonna Judd
    “The One” by Backstreet Boys

  71. Sonya

    With Rachel “Battlefield” by Jordan Sparks it’s like they love/hate each other

  72. Lucinda

    Editors – Blood (Rachel and Trent)

  73. “Corrupt” from Depeche Mode

    Guilty Trench Shipper

  74. Lydia

    Points of Authority – linkin park (Trent and Rachel)

  75. rachel g

    i in love to trent, sorry, i have to say it

  76. Angela AC

    I’m going to go with HateF**k by the Bravery. Trent, Rachel….get a room already.

  77. rachel g

    Epica: never enough

  78. Quissivar

    Iron Maiden: Powerslave
    Peter Gabriel: Big Time

  79. Tonya

    I Can’t Decide by the Scissor Sisters for his relationship with Rachel… the entire song fits perfectly to their relationship… heck, even just the first line of the chorus is enough: “I can’t decide rather you should live or die”. Perfect!

    • emily

      that is a perfect song for them and i love that song! some times when i listen to it i think of the hallow series and rachel and trent.

  80. mel

    marilyn manson – the beautiful people

  81. Sonya

    I think of these songs:
    “I’m bad” by Michel Jackson
    “I’m bringing sexy back”

  82. Joost

    for the relationship Rachel and Trent have i would suggest Hate everything about you by Ugly kid joe

  83. Joel

    “Du hast” by Ramstein(about Rachel) it’s in German but it translates into “You hate” the song litraly says “You hate me”

    • loony

      not really : “Du hast” can be more translated this way :
      You have *
      You have me
      You have asked me
      You have asked me and I have said nothing

      Do you want, until death seperates you,
      To be faithful to her for all days


      Do you want, until death, which would seperate, **
      To love her, even in bad days


      not about hate : more about a man who don’t want to have a (marital) relationship

  84. Belle Morte69

    Open your eyes
    by Guanos apes

  85. Belle Morte69

    Stop playing god
    By Exilia

  86. Jen B.

    Without a doubt… especially lately… Trent is all Linkin Park… “What I’ve Done”. 😉

  87. Wynn

    “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2
    “Sad And Beautiful World” by Sparklehorse
    “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve
    “Love Hurts” by Incubus (Not the same song as the one by Nazareth)
    “Do The Right Thing” by The Dudes
