Default Musical continuity of the Warcraft franchise

I've just noticed that two of the Orc themes in TFT (which both appear in the same sound track "The Orcish Horde") had already been used in Warcraft 2.

One of the more famous examples is probably the "Invincible" theme, prominently featured in WotLK originally appearing in the ending to TFT.

I've also heard that a part of the Shadowmoon Valley music in TBC is derived from "Rise of the Ancients" from RoC, though it's the quiet rumbling part. (Edit: it's actually the Night Elf soundtrack from TFT.)

What are some other examples? The WoD zones probably have a lot of reference to the music of the TBC counterparts, but I'd be more interested in less obvious ones.

Are you talking about "Orc Theme [Old School]"?

It's mostly a remix of Warcraft 2's "Orc 2", with track from this scene added to the beginning:

And, btw, the second scene (with the Dragon Turtles) sounds like "Dark Victory" from Warcraft 3.

The Crimson Hall has an unholy themed mix of Eversong Woods and Lament of the Highborne.

Yes. By the way, it's also played in the instance Old Hillsbrad.

I suppose everyone noticed that the teaser cinematic for Legion uses the theme from TBC cinematic.

I think Hellfire Peninsula has notes from remixed Warcraft 1 Orc themes.

The theme from Molten Core was also used in Reign of Chaos' teaser trailer.

'Human Victory' theme from WCII is also the BG victory theme for the Alliance in WoW.

Shadow Orb

I really like the Honor Hold music. You come in the place then get this epic music intro. It also plays at Odessyus' Landing.
