Song suggestions for a drum corps show

Hey! So I'm starting work on a project called "Wake Up" and I'm looking for ideas of some possible songs to put in it. They can either be from this website or big professional works.

The show theme is more on the depressing/somber side with a twist at the very end. (Not spoiling anything yet) But help would be appreciated with the musical selections and also a percussion writer would be awesome!

Thanks!

Thomas Bergersen DCI Show

I am currently working on my own drum corps piece using music by Thomas Bergersen in his album "Illusions." Please check it out and let me know what y'all think. Check the description to see what I plan to do with that piece. Please feel free to critique it and give me ideas. I hope y'all like what I have so far. Anyway here's the link. https://musescore.com/user/10964131/scores/5171039   
Oh and if you don't know Thomas Bergersen I recommend you check him out. Listen to Two Steps From Hell.

2112

Hey, I was wondering if anybody has found a very good "FULL SHOW" based on the song 2112, if not I was maybe thinking of trying to make one. I know that there is one by some college band that is pretty good but it is only like a 3 min show and I was looking for like a full, and well done, HS or DCI show. If I end up making a show based off of this, please also let me know if you'd be interested in helping me :) THX fellow DCI lovers!

Thank you all! be sure to watch for a summer original competition! :D

*I did average out a little bit the scoring of the scores, so some scores scored higher in caparison to others than what is written, but they all had some really great ideas!!*

I’m updating “Shorts for Trombone” and need suggestions for songs to add

You may have seen my “Shorts for Trombone.” It is by far my most popular score, probably because it pops up if you search  for a lot of popular music. It has not been updated in a while and I would like to add a whole bunch of new excerpts to it. If you have any suggestions, comment them below and I will add pretty much anything.  
I am also interested in creating versions of my shorts for concert pitch treble, Eb treble, F treble, and Bb treble, and a version in bass clef an octave lower than the current version so that more people can play my shorts. I am not pro, so those would be something you would have to ask for.

Here’s the score: https://musescore.com/user/2878026/scores/2800021
