Every hero needs theme music. 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

Teresa = Hoobastank - The Reason (This is specifically about how the Emperor changed her life)

Teresa & Tadrose = Heart - Under the Sky

Teresa & Simplicia = Ayumi Hamasaki - Who (Lyrics in English)

Tadrose = StainD - So Far Away

The Bravil Fighters Guild = Rob Tyner - Blood Brothers

Vincent = R.E.M.- The Great Beyond

Pappy = Carly Simon - Nobody Does It Better / Marty Robbins - Big Iron

Kurdan gro-Dragol = Queen - Gimmie The Prize

Morandil = Queen - I Want It All

Aela = Rod Stewart - Faith Of The Heart / Eric Clapton - Layla (the piano coda)

Aela & Ungarion = Queen - You're My Best Friend

Valens = Enya - Evening Falls (we will meet him in a few more episodes of Seven)

Valerius Nasica = Kansas - Carry on Wayward Son

Methredhel = Fire Inc - Nowhere Fast

Chance = Elvis - A Little Less Conversation

Do'Sakhar = Bon Jovi - Never Say Die

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 The Sweet - Ballroom Blitz

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!

And yet I am, and live—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 below—above the vaulted sky.”

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:


Buffy = Enya - Evening Falls

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!

What a great, haunting choice for Maxical and Fathis. I often think Fathis would be better off it it were this song. But only in those times I feel sorry for him.

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.

I loved I'm Gonna Get You Sucka! That was such a fun movie.

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.
