http://youtu.be/hz-KwtKRBUY Often when I when I am listening to music a song will grab me, and I will think "That is perfect for so and so!" Share some of your own character's theme music. Or theme music you think fits other people's characters. I'll get the ball rolling with some songs that make me think of characters from the TF/AF

GAAAAAH! I thought of that song when I was reading about their past in Teresa!

I will come back to listen to the other songs later, can't right now. I want to hear Teresa's for sure.


In the meantime, here is the song for Gils in "A New Sun Rises"

I was thinking about what you said about Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin and that song immediately popped into my head for A&U.


One that just came to me was for Jerric, everyone's favorite brawling Nord http://youtu.be/VzpWJx3I2DY

That is what made me think of that song too, their history was so parallel to Freddie Mercury and Mary Austin, and I've always thought of her when I hear Freddie sing "You're My Best Friend" - wondered if he wrote that thinking of her. I played that song after reading that part about Aela in the Teresa story!

Holy Cow, what a powerful song for Teresa! In the vid, when the birds flew up in the air - that was an amazing connection with her, and then listening to the lyrics I knew the change came from Uriel - awesome choice of song for her!

So far, all I can think of is "Demons" by Imagine Dragons when thinking of Kayla and Onmund.

These two really struck me as apropos as well, but all were excellent choices based on the personalities of the parties involved.

Loved that one for Teresa and Simplicia, where did you ever find it? The lyrics for it were amazing, and apt for their relationship - loved that one.

Subrosa already used this song for Valens, but I am nominating it also for Buffy - listening to it really brought her to mind strongly:

Never heard of it prior to Vurt used it as a background theme in an Ashlands Tree mod for MW. I was instantly in love with the song itself, and as I felt it embodied the aesthetic feel of my own character as I perceive him.

Deep, dark and mysterious. The song is anything but upbeat. More 'haunting' than not, within this darkness of the song there's a sense of despair, but also of wonder and a 'spirituality' all the same, hence the quote in the picture.

"All life starts with death
All death starts with life
Ever circles back again
Ever falls to regain

All life is reborn
All hope is to know
Righteous Places, Righteous Times
Even though we live to die."


Or something like that...

To Subrosa, great idea and great thread! And I loved the clip from 'Git You Sucka!' I have not seen that movie in years! And these jams...oh man. Y'all are just guilty of good taste!

About ten years ago a friend of mine turned me on to Ayumi, and I have been in love with her voice ever since. Who is my favorite song of her's. It always makes me feel like crying. I think it means a lot to her as well, because I watched one performance where she was crying while she sang it, and another where she became so choked up that she could not sing.

Unfortunately I cannot find the original version online, and I think that is the best version. All I can ever find are live versions or a remix she did recently. The remixed music does not do anything for me, it feels overproduced. The original was just a heartfelt piano and Ayumi's haunting voice. The trouble with the live versions is that I think that is her closing song, so by the time she sings it she is tired from two hours of singing and dancing, and she always interrupts the song halfway though to introduce her band. If you can ever find her Loveppears album it is on that, maybe I-Tunes or Amazon has it for download.

Excellent song for Seth. It has a real Dunmeri/Morrowindish feel to it, especially the vocals.

I had the same feeling just reading the lyrics. I would like to hear the original, that is not a song one should interrupt to introduce the band at all, that would subtract the impact totally for those who understood the lyrics as they were being sung.

"Excellent song for Seth. It has a real Dunmeri/Morrowindish feel to it, especially the vocals." - I felt that strongly too, the vocals on that were absolutely perfect for Seth's character, and for the Morrowind Dunmer voice.

Black Hand, I didn�t know the source of that quote. Seth�s song is haunting and a little disquieting, but beautiful. How fitting.

ghastley, Fat Bottomed Girls was in our playlist on today�s drive home. I couldn�t remember Virgilia�s name at the time, but I thought how appropriate for the one in the white boots!


Here�s kind of an obvious one for Abiene: Live�s http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EmHW5KcHQoc. (Much better live, but try to find Live�s The River live. Google chokes on that one.)

Some wishful thinking from Jerric: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuN6gs0AJls.

I know your pain about doing internet searches about Live! I have been a fan of them for a long time. I even used Ed Kowalczyk as a character in my old pen and paper Shadowrun game.

I can so see that for all their songs. Even poor Darnand and his low self-esteem. Let's just hope that he can keep his fingers out of the necromantic pie, and http://youtu.be/U29cOBezOOs never becomes his theme song.


Thought of another one for Valens = http://youtu.be/A5SuiywnBuo

Love Prince! Let's Go Crazy always makes me think of a particular stallion of my friends'. This one also fits his ebullient personality - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNJjwyvYT0c Joniece Jamison did the backup vocals for the Revenge album and she is awesome - what a voice! You really need a powerful female singer to keep up with Annie, especially when she is in full-on rock mode. Come to think of it, it's not a bad fit for Ungarion either, based on what I've seen of him so far! wink.gif

Aww! Sting (and the Police) is another vocalist that I really really enjoy. This choice works for Julian at the end of the MQ, like SubRosa said. But at the beginning, when she first steps out of the tutorial dungeon, this is my choice for her - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ETHw7GCB9fw

For Cora and Wallace, this is their song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oM2uAnW2LU0. I've loved, loved, loved Fleetwood Mac for decades now, and this is one of my perennial favorites. I found this awesome version from before they joined FM and think this is perfect for the beginning of Cardonaccum.

I've never thought of giving any of my characters their own theme tune...And now, trying to think of one, nothing springs to mind... sad.gif ...

But as a theme tune to the whole Knights of The Nine thing...

I always kind of imagined a whole 80s cartoon a-la Thundercats/Battle of The Planets etc long intro with all the chars turning up at some point...Aaaamywho...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3Yc3HhSl1Q...

The theme running through my head is the instrumental bits that start at 4.15 of the song and the bits towards the end edited together, which gives ample time to preview everything...Oh hell, you know what I mean?...This is the http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcGNqrAtsgg one...

Aaamywho, great thread...Will think of something...

Perhaps the track that primarily I identify with Niamh is this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hhHMI_0mFZ0 - (from the GiTS soundtrack).

As you know, Buffy spends most of her days riding the wilderness and most of her nights sharing a campfire under the stars with her precious mare. In her world, a Bosmer's love of the wilderness and approach to hunting is inspired much more by American Indians than TES lore. Therefore, I found this haunting song wonderfully appropriate to capture some of her feelings -

When I picked the Terminator 2 intro as Lothrans theme I was quite the jester. I chose it as a laugh because I didnt know what song to really pick as his theme. Now I do.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAwzg1xGSjU

This song has been shot to pieces at countless graduations and other occasions but nevertheless I feel this song captures Lothrans life and future quite well. Its not meant to be interpreted as his ending, but rather the point in life where he pauses and looks back on all the things hes done, both good and bad, and what still lies before him. Because his adventures in Cyrodiil are far from over. In a way, they have only just begun...

Posted by: mirocu Jan 20 2014, 05:34 PM

I thought it was well suited as the theme to showcase his long life of adventures and the slight turn it has taken to the more domestic approach in the winter. Though I do think he will become much more active again in the spring. After all, there are many more spells to make and many caves to revisit smile.gif

I cannot think of a better reason to reanimate this thread than my favorite living dead girl - Persephone.

A few days ago I heard https://youtu.be/KGsQ5n9Qu0A, and realized it fits her really well. It feels like those moments in her death where she is trying so desperately to remember what it felt like to be alive.

Oh, that does suit Persephone! goodjob.gif

Avada Kedavra! Music is such an integral part of character building so here’s a bunch of tracks I listen to whenever I’m working on a particular character to try to get inside their heads, if you will.

CYLAISE
1. Poacher’s Pride - Nicole Dollanganger
2. Coronation - Ciscandra Nostalghia
3. Cupid Carries a Gun - Marilyn Manson
4. Apex Predator - Otep
5. Wolf Eyes - The Witcher 3
6. The High Fells - The Hobbit Trilogy OST
7. Hans Landa Theme - Inglorious Basterds
8. Magdalena - A Perfect Circle

While watching Daria, I came across a great theme song for Aela and Ungarion (aka Aela and Loria) = https://youtu.be/6DbSERgRNus

Here is the perfect theme song for Khajiit’s ESO character Brenna:

Just heard the perfect theme song for Gadget/Avery = https://youtu.be/Xydf351l-gw

Very nice, SubRosa. And the modern tune well-suits Gadget.

Buffy has many theme songs. Here's one that that's most appropriate for Buffy and her spirit gang - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2yEnzVVX5s

Now that is very Buffy. It brings you so into the woods, that I expected to see Robin Hood over my shoulder when I turned around.

I found a solid, modern theme song for Blood Raven = https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFQYaoiIFh8 It really fits her time in France during WWII, which was horrific.

Posted by: Acadian Jan 20 2020, 08:46 PM

I'm fascinated by characters that can transcend time (Blood Raven, Wonder Woman, Highlander, elves in general), either by outliving it or traveling through it. Bood Raven is very cool - I love how she doesn't quite fit in to the time in which she meets Stormcrow. The song is appropriate, given the dark aspects harbored by the good Blood Raven - if that makes sense.
