Pieces turned down because I didn't think they were dramatic enough:
- Mendelssohn's 5th Symphony
- Bruckner's 4th Symphony
- Symphony Fantastique (Berlioz)
- Beethoven's 5th Symphony
- Dvorak's 7th Symphony
- Orpheus in the Underworld (Can Can) (Offenbach)
- Rhenish Symphony (Schumann)

Pieces turned down because they were by the same composer:
- Finlandia (Sibelius)
- The Planets: Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity (Holst)
- Night on Bald Mountain (Mussorgsky)

Pieces turned down because they weren't really an "ending":
- Thus Spoke Zarathustra: Sunrise (Strauss)
- Fanfare for the Common Man (Copland)
- O Fortuna (Orff)
