Title: Song Collection and Acquisition thread!
Post by: Sage on April 10, 2013, 04:52:33 PM
The concept is simple - when you find songs that work for a character, post them here!  Maybe even with a Youtube link, so we all can enjoy!

I have a running list of Roimata songs here:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1njfMCKpk0zztA03uBRmRGI1EBOyhnWCly2DtuApyXGQ/edit   I plan on making a mega 8tracks playlist for him, so we all can hear :D

I got three that pinged my Phoebe alarm:

Pocketful of Sunshine - Natasha Bedingfield - Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gte3BoXKwP0)
Shame on You - Andrea Corr - Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHYVL0nwQhc)
Kingdom Dance - Tangled soundtrack - Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYfySVrQxto)

I listen to a lot of music at work, so I will update when I feel like I've found songs for other characters!

Here are some more songs!  <3

I thought this would be an excellent song for the Resistance:

Hybrid - Can You Hear Me (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgPCtIWr00s)

And a couple for Kit:

Baltimore - Tarzan Boy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_HO2rEKSs3w) (Because I love inflicting the 80's on people)

Philip Phillips - Home (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKTjUre_wZo)
(Specifically for Kit and her Lost Kids)

General Fuzz - Comfort Zone (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RgsXxf9_LBI)

And one for Seth/Ulric (The interesting bit to me is: which parts are better suited for Ulric, and which ones for Seth?  It's kinda hard to tell at times!)

Styx - Mr. Robot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LjkC3eT6LA)

And also one for Sin:

Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratory - The Future Starts With You (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XJIgHWnkcnA)

For Phia

Radioactive-- Imagine Dragons (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu-xFvLaE68)

Redemption-- The Divine Madness (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KrxxcM2kTU) (the only version I could find was a Tudors fan vid)

and a diss song, because Phia is that kind of smartass.

Fighting Trousers-- Professor Elemental (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iRTB-FTMdk)

Kol found the perfect Pwyll and Ronwy song:

Little Talks -- Of Monsters and Men (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghb6eDopW8I)

The fact that it's sung by both a guy and a girl makes it even more awesome XD

For all the resistance senshi in general, Stars Align by Lindsey Stirling (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXEo_IUs1po).

Totally shocked nobody has posted this yet. It has connections to Bioshock (Infinite even) and it's a protest song. Beast by Nico Vega (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eheESgRNJKc)

Here, have a couple of image-y songs!  :D

Cirque du Soleil - Fly Around (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG6ozuoFGTk) - This song kinda makes me think of Tam, with the frantic undertones kinda reminding me of her paranoia and how she keeps running.  Then in the last minute or so it makes me think of Tam getting into the cockpit, finding all her confidence and Top Gunning everyone out of the water.  <3

Peter Gabriel - Solsbury Hill (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRQIic97g6U) - I kinda think of this as another Sin song, strangely.  The whole first half of the song or so makes me think of her vision on Hippolyta and what happened afterwards.

DVA - Juchu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZGJ-_zfMtY) - Kit on Heracles, especially with all the lovely nature sounds.  <3

Jack Wall - Enter Serenia (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeonmogSMvA) - And some nice background music for the Great Tree, all majestic, but also sweet and lonesome.  <3

Lindsey Stirling usually gives me Phoebe feels, plus she plays a violin :D

Yes! She gives me Phoebe feels too. :) I actually have that same song on her Pinterest board. <3

FINALLY!

Finished a Roimata playlist XD

Listen to it at 8tracks, and let me know if you want the songs <3

Love and Death @ 8tracks (http://8tracks.com/impersona/love-and-death-are-always-on-my-mind)

Next I might do a playlist full of mush and shipping because that's how I roll ;_;

I found a song that kind of reminds me of Daki:

Change of Time - Josh Ritter (http://youtu.be/bhoME4ji6jk)

... And I love 8tracks (thank you for introducing it to me, Sage!) so I think I'm going to work on one for Phoebe, which will probably include mush. ^^;

Alyssssss (and everyone else), leave your 8tracks handle so that I can follow you!  I've already seen Brenna lurking around there :D   My dj name is "impersona".

I can't wait to see Phoebe mush!

I'm elegant.mess.1986

So far, only one mix, and my tastes in music are pretty darn generic, but we'll see...  8)

My 8tracks ID is alyssheart and I have a Phoebe OST (http://8tracks.com/alyssheart/light-in-the-dark/) ready!

This is more of the happy/mushy side of her ... I'll probably make a "shadow-self" OST at some point too.  ... And the last track would be one of those hidden bonus tracks, but I had to add it. XD

I keep on dying whenever "Boy in a Rock and Roll Band" plays.  I really like the mix a lot - I'd actually want to exercise to this because it makes me want to pick up and keep on going. 

(Working on a Sin playlist, and she will also have Tori Amos in hers XD If I can find more artists with 'twin' songs that apply to Sin too, I'll abuse them)

Since I seem to add songs in drips and drabs, here have a couple more.  :D

For Kit/Ulric:  Rusted Root - Send Me On My Way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuV2agQPgps) - The playful, affectionate tone of the melody and lyrics totally fits Kit and Ulric's relationship.  In addition, the refrain of "Send me on my way" seems to add a sort of bittersweetness, and maybe lends to how Ulric teaches Kit a few things to help her survive out there in the big world before they're permanently separated.

For Phoebe:  Alanis Morrissette - Wunderkind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6YYKHerPAg) - Of course there's the leadership/rising princess motif, but I think there's also an uncertainty that works well for Phoebe, as well as an innocence that she still manages to hold onto.

Firestarter by Demi Lovato gives me hardcore Phia feels O_O  There is a paragraph I particularly like:

I'm a bad-ass jumping off the moving train
I'm a Jane Bond, putting all them guys to shame
I'm a wild card, and I'm gonna steal your game
You better watch out

Oh, if I were a better artist, I could animate what's in my head. It's pure anime opening credits crack.

So, naturally, I must offer up my choice for Bishoujo Senshi Sera Yuridishi's Opening Theme Song: When You Were Young by The Killers (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-ip02FknUo)
The Opening Sequence would involve lots of floating, running, jumping, dancing and characters showing off their typical attributes (E.G. Phia in a cute, boyish zoot suit, dancing and lighting tarot cards on fire). And lots of Phoebe looking wistful and Sin looking mysterious over shots of Crystal Tokyo and Arcadia Station.

Especially with the lines:

"They say the devil's water,
it ain't so sweet,
You don't have to drink right now.
But you can dip your feet,
every once in a little while..."

I started making this particular playlist for the summer challenge, so some of the choices would have been a BIT less overplayed if I hadn't wibbled over the final selections for six months XD
Title: Re: Song Collection and Acquisition thread!
Post by: Ru on January 30, 2014, 03:38:18 PM
More songs!  :D

For Seren:

Pink - Try (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fdHCec23BKE)  Fun fact:  This was the song that cemented Seren in my head, both because it helped solidify her concept for me, and because it made me realize that pre-conversion she was actually a pretty strong person in her own way - strong enough that she could work up the courage to confess her love (but as we all know, it didn't work out XD)

Genesis - Invisible Touch (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uxp6Ek_tpSI)  Seren image song ALL OVER THE PLACE.  Also, pheromone emitters for the win.  :D

Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrGw_cOgwa8)  Another Seren image song.  :D 

And a song for Sin:

Emilie Autumn - Time for Tea (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qwy9yk1d7Tk)  Listening to this I realized that this song has Sin just before/during the coup written ALL.  OVER.  IT.  I also love the warping of the little girl nursery rhyme, because it seems like it's Sin's life in a nutshell.  XD

And finally for the Revolutionary Senshi:

Emilie Autumn - By the Sword (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o30DMyE7xTE)  There's the general message of valiantly doing good, and the mention of remembering those who came before, and being part of a tight band.  It seems appropriately heroic and bittersweet for the senshi, both the Old and the New Guard.  <3
Title: Re: Song Collection and Acquisition thread!
Post by: Sage on February 04, 2014, 03:19:31 PM
Emilie Autumn is the best, and yeah, creepy babydoll songs like that are great for Sin. 

ALSO A GENESIS SONG FOR SEREN??? BE STILL MY BEATING HEART.

A song that makes me think of Phoebe and Phia trapped in a busted elevator aboard the Gloriana. Getting bored and mashing up songs while playing anything in reach as an instrument.

Jane Lui and Felicia Day - Waiting for the Prince Who Never Calls (Maroon 5 vs. Disney's Snow White) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAOqHqs1yHE&list=FL7FeT8zDWsZgkYeWQmxb3Vg&index=17)

Also, this one is for Seraia and the two most important girls in her life: Phoebe and Phia.

Jane Lui - Just The Way You Are (Bruno Mars cover) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxHGiQm6i98&list=FL7FeT8zDWsZgkYeWQmxb3Vg)

And this one is for the Psychean Ladyboys!

Icona Pop - All Night (Extended Video) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNuNJLlq8eQ&list=FL7FeT8zDWsZgkYeWQmxb3Vg)

FOUND POSSIBLY THE MOST PHOEBE SONG I'VE EVER HEARD

Piano - Ariane Grand (https://soundcloud.com/immyypriest98/piano-ariana-grande-yours)

Also Brenna, I love Felicia Day ;_; awesome find

I have a Musical!AU Headcanon where this whole thing is a musical. Time for Tea would have to get a reprise in the second or third act from the Revolutionary Senshi.

It would actually be like the Nibelungen Cycle on a grander scale, with maybe a musical for each PC.

On a somewhat more sobering note, this is the song that plays in my head when I read a sad scene for these guys. I kinda picture this being played as the last waltz at Phia's Deb Ball, not by the string quartet hired by the Aunties (playing everything Vitamin String Quartet has ever played), but by a handful of Folk musicians that Phia has offered to pay in beer and sammiches. The whole time she dances, she's in tears, because, by all rights, she should be dancing the last dance with her father while her mother, Aunt Jocasta, siblings, and Cousin Seraia watch.

Mmm, I love me some Lindsey Stirling.  <3  It's a good fight song too!

That does make me wonder, do we have a planet/region that can do a Western-inspired theme yet?  Because if not, we've gotta get a moon out there or something that's Western-inspired so we can have bar fights and high noon shootouts.  XD  And awesome hats for everyone!
