What a great thread!

Rosa, I thought Teresa’s song (The Reason) was perfect. And I just loved Chance’s song!!

mALX, Gils’ is a heartbreaker.

QUOTE(SubRosa @ Jul 13 2013, 10:40 PM) *

One that just came to me was for Jerric, everyone's favorite brawling Nord The Sweet - Ballroom Blitz

Now that is a bottle-breaking, ass kicking, adrenaline-fueled song! biggrin.gif

DE, I especially enjoyed Vera’s first song.

mALX, you got me again with Mad World. Wow. Fathis. sad.gif

I always think of Buffy when I hear Enya! happy.gif

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 The River. (Much better live, but try to find Live’s The River live. Google chokes on that one.)

Some wishful thinking from Jerric: I Melt With You.

A note: This one has a very naughty word. Darnand has some deeply buried insecurities and self-loathing that he would rather not expose. Here’s a song for his darkest moments: Creep.

And this one’s for Lildereth: I Will Remember You.

Oh wow, I actually know the Bass Player from that band!

He retired to the city in the Subway I worked at, and came in all the time with the family. Their hyperactive daughter loved me especially. Jumping up and down when I was there. It might have been the free cookies I gave them.

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 this never becomes his theme song.


Thought of another one for Valens = Van Halen - Don't Tell Me What Love Can Do

And a Vols song, what he never could say aloud to Simplicia = The Moody Blues - Nights In White Satin

For those who can remember Hirtuleius from the Battle of Bruma = John Tams - Over The Hills And Far Away

Plus another one for the Bravil Fighters Guild = Randy Edelman - The Gettysburg Soundtrack - Fife and Gun

Fantastic choice for Vols and Simplicia!

This song is AWESOME! I couldn't stop listening to it, what a fantastic choice for the deep and quiet Darnand!

I have a pile of new ones.

I'll start with one for Ungarion = Prince - Let's Go Crazy (I cannot believe how hard it is to find Prince videos!)

And another for Ungarion = Lenny Kravitz - Dig In

Nashira = Survivor - Eye of the Tiger

Seridwe (who will appear Friday in the next episode of Seven) = Queen - Killer Queen

And a song for the heroes of Seven = Triumph - Fight The Good Fight

Now for some other folk's characters.

This one makes me think of Julian in the final episode of Old Habits Die Hard = Sting - Fields of Gold

Daenlin (from the Archer's Paradox in Bravil) = Ted Nugent - Tooth, Fang, and Claw

Abiene = I Can Stop The World

This one is in my soundtrack list. Between Lycus' journey in the path of self-enlightement and Vera's meditation contact with the spirits of her Lycanthropic ancestors.

Now I still need a theme for Lycus/Kraven. Haven't found one yet sad.gif


--------------------
And yet I am, and liveā€”like vapours tossed.
I long for scenes where man hath never trod
A place where woman never smiled or wept
There to abide with my Creator, God,
And sleep as I in childhood sweetly slept,
Untroubling and untroubled where I lie
The grass belowā€”above the vaulted sky.ā€¯

Love Prince! Let's Go Crazy always makes me think of a particular stallion of my friends'. This one also fits his ebullient personality - Eurythmics - Let's Go 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 - Annie Lennox's Little Bird.

For Cora and Wallace, this is their song - Buckingham Nicks. 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.

Another reason to like H.E.R. biggrin.gif ...Fleetwood Mac?...Oh-ho-hooo yes!!...Loves them muchly...Even some of the post Buckingham/Nicks line-ups donchaknow... wink.gif biggrin.gif ...

Aaaamywho...

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...

Muse - Knights of Cydonia...

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 Thundercats one...

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

Welp, I found the perfect theme tune for Ra'jirra.

Perhaps the track that primarily I identify with Niamh is this one: Origa - Rise - (from the GiTS soundtrack).

Equally though, these also spring to mind:
Lana Del Rey - Ride
The Cure - Strange Day
Vex Red - The Closest

And finally:

Made Out Of Babies - Stranger

I’m beginning to realize that another Jerric and Rhano short story is not likely to happen soon, so here’s a song for Anvil’s boys of summer. (Heard it on a Mr. Grits roadtrip mix titled “5 Hours.” Not very helpful. I had to look it up.)

Jerric circa 3E419: All Summer Long.

I have always loved that song. I have that album (or at least I did), on cassette. It fits Abies empathic nature quite well.

I love that song! (of course it helps that Kid Rock is from Michigan like I am). It always feels like a modern version of Bob Seger's Brave Strangers

You might also consider Stand By Me. That song has left an indelible mark in my brain thanks to the movie by the same name. Come to think of it, it makes for a good Aela and Ungarion song too.

One just came to me: This is Valens and the Warp In The West

Yep, that could be the theme song for the whole of Jerric’s Story. Excellent choice. Also a great song for Martin and the Sun’s Companion, and it’s perfect for Aela and Ungarion!

I find that Vangelis' Tales of the Future from the Blade Runner soundtrack fits Azura's character for A Conclave of Princes pretty well; has a very nice, mysterious feel to it, and I had it playing on loop for the opening chapter.
