A place to post songs that remind us of our (or other people's!) characters. Lyrics and youtube streams are greatly appreciated!

Eleste's current theme -



This is so hard for me
To find the words to say
My thoughts are standing still

Captive inside of me
All emotions start to hide
And nothing's getting through

Watch me
Fading
I'm losing
All my instincts
Falling into darkness

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinking further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls for me now

So much uncertainty
I don't like this feeling
I'm sinking like a stone

Each time I try to speak
There's a voice I'm hearing
And it changes everything

Watch me
Crawl from
The wreckage
Of my silence
Conversation
Failing

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinking further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls

Every time you choose to turn away
Is it worth the price you pay
Is there someone who will wait for you
One more time
One more time

Watch me
Fading
I'm losing
All my instincts
Falling into darkness

Tear down these walls for me
Stop me from going under
You are the only one who knows
I'm holding back

It's not too late for me
To keep from sinking further
I'm trying to find my way out
Tear down these walls for me now

Tear down these walls for me
It's not too late for me
Tear down these walls for me



Of course, this one's also a bit... fitting.



[chorus]
Bring the violence
It's significant
To the life
If you've ever known anyone
Bring the violence
It's significant
To the life
Can you feel it?
Oh ow, ow!

How do you sleep
When you live with your lies
Out of your mouth
Up from your mind
That kind of thinking
Starts a chain reaction
You are a timebomb ticking away
You need to release
What you're feeling inside
Let out the beast
That you're trying to hide
Step right up and be a part of the action
Go get your game face on
Because it's time to play
You're pushing and fighting your way
You're ripping it up

[chorus] x2

How do you live without playing the game
Sit on the side and expect to keep sane
Step right up and be a part of the action
Come get a piece of it before it's too late
Take a look around
You can't deny what you see
Were living in a violent society
Well my brother let me show you a better way
Get your game face on because it's time to play
You're pushing and fighting your way
You're ripping it up

[chorus] x2

Tell me what am I supposed to be
Another goddamn drone
Tell me what am I supposed to be
Should I leave it on the inside
Tell me what am I supposed to be
Another goddamn drone
Tell me what am I supposed to be

Should I get ready to play?
You're pushing and fighting your way
You're ripping it up

[chorus] x2

Nikolai

Korobeiniki (a.k.a. Korobushka), a Russian folksong with a melody everyone probably recognizes, captures very well Nik's playful, earthy, carefree, and cheerful side:


Oy polnym polna korobushka
(Oy, my crate is so full)
Yest' i sitets i parcha.
(I've got chintz and brocade.)
Pozhaley, dusha-zaznobushka,
(Take pity, oh sweetheart)
Molodetskogo plecha.
(On this poor lad's shoulder.)

Vyydu, vyydu v rozh' vysokuyu,
(I will, I will go out to the tall rye)
Tam do nochki pogozhu,
(I will wait there till the night comes)
Kak zavizhu chernookuyu,
(Once I see the dark-eyed girl,)
Vse tovary razlozhu.
(I will showcase all my goods.)

Tseny sam platil nemalyye,
(I paid no small price, myself,)
Ne torguysya, ne skupis',
(So don't bargain or be stingy,)
Podstavlyay-ka gubki alyye,
(Bring your scarlet lips to me,)
Blizhe k molodtsu sadis'.
(Sit closer to this fine lad.)

Katya berezhno torguyetsya
(Katya is haggling with care)
Vsyo boitsya peredat',
(She is afraid to pay too much,)
Paren' s devitsey tseluyetsya,
(The lad is kissing his girl,)
Prosit tseny nabavlyat'.
(Asking her to raise the price.)


On the other hand, Engel (Rammstein) captures a lot of his more brooding aspects pretty well, especially his Humanism. I'll also retranslate it, because Rammstein's English translations are notoriously shitty. Also, the video has nothing to do with anything.


Wer zu Lebzeit gut auf Erden
(He who is good in his lifetime on Earth)
wird nach dem Tod ein Engel werden
(That one, after he dies, becomes an angel)
den Blick gen Himmel fragst du dann
(Then looking to Heaven, you ask)
warum man sie nicht sehen kann
(Why one cannot see them)

erst wenn die Wolken schlafengehn
{{Just before the clouds go to sleep}}
kann man uns am Himmel sehn
{{One can see us in Heaven}}
wir haben Angst und sind allein
{{We are frightened and alone}}
Gott weiss ich will kein Engel sein
(God knows I don't want to be an angel!)

Sie leben hinterm Sonnenshein
(They live beyond the sunshine)
getrennt von uns unendlich weit
(Apart from us forever)
sie mussen sich an Sterne krallen (ganz fest)
(They must cling and crawl upon the stars [most firmly])
damit sie nicht vom Himmel fallen
(In order not to fall from Heaven)

Chorus repeats


Finally, in the event that Nik should fully Devil Trigger, since the Nightmare Armor sure looks like a Guyver from Hell (literally!) and Nik is definitely not his usual self when Triggered, this is always what comes to mind:




Jackal
I never managed to work out an actual translation of this, but if someone with some fluency (like Chrissy? <3 <3 <3) wants to try (<3 <3), this song definitely comes to mind for me in the event that Jackal gets serious in mecha combat... especially since I can totally imagine the opening section in particular (and thus the whole basic melody) being a metal guitar rendition of the FIMC national anthem. Well, and there's the title, of course...




Aedin
I don't really have a lot of theme music for him anymore, and it's tough to find anything very good, since he's more comtemplative than a Super Action Dude. But with a little searching, this is a good start:

Also, I think it's obvious that Alita's (a.k.a. Gally's) theme should be

I've got nothing against her, but to hell with Priss. This song is about Alita.

Suna arashi ga makio koru savanna
(In a savannah enraged by sandstorms...)
Tobasu baiku Hyooteki oikakete.
(...I chase down my prey on a speeding bike.)
Rikutsu ja nai Mune ni tagiru honoo.
(This fire burning in my chest defies logic.)
Anata to nara Onaji yume miresoo.
(If I'm with you, we might share the same dream.)

Kanashimi ga konagona ni
(I don't want to cool)
chigireteyuku made
(this raging passion)
fukisusabu kono joonetsu o
(until my sadness)
samashitakunai.
(is torn to pieces.)

Don’t stop your love, your love
Tell me, what do you want?
Tell me, how do you feel?

Teoi no kemono ne futari maru de
(You and I are like wounded beasts,)
Ueteru hitomi ga shootu shiteru.
(our starving eyes shorting out.)
Furimuku setsuna ni obienagara
(I look back, painfully afraid,)
setsunaku kodoo ga dansu shiteru.
(while my heartbeat does a painful dance.)

Tell me, what do you want?
Tell me, how do you feel?

Wakaranai yo Ashita no koto nante.
(I don't know about tomorrow and all.)
Butsukeaeru Kokoro ga hoshii dake.
(All I want is someone with a heart which I can crash into.)

Toketeyuku nanimokamo
(Everything is melting away.)
samishii jooke sa
(It's such a sad joke)
nagusame yori kuuru name ga
(that cool stares)
yasashii nante.
(are more tender than sympathy.)

Feelin' so bad, so bad
Tell me, what do you want?
Tell me, how do you feel?

Teoi no kemono ga aegu yoo ni
(Time flies, chasing us,)
tobisaru jikan ga cheisu shiteru.
(like a suffering, wounded beast.)
Mezameru yasei ni te o kamaret
(My awakening wild nature has me in its grasp.)
kamen o hagu tabi onna ni naru.
(The more masks I remove, the more of a woman I become.)

Tell me, what do you want?
Tell me, how do you feel?

New themes for Jimu

Post by MajorJim on Mon Mar 30, 2009 11:03 pm

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3ki6ERSL7w
New song for Jim, it's all about waiting, at this point. Waiting and enduring.


Brazen is love's redeemer
When you have so far to go
It loves the true believer
For the innocence they own

Life is good Life is grand
When you're sittin' on top of the world
Life is good when it's in your hands your hands
And nobody can change your world

I'm just waiting for the light to change
I'm just waiting for the light to change
I'm just waiting for the light to change
I'm just waiting

All my prize possessions
That I thought I needed so
Dragged me down on a razor
With a heaviness they tow
always searching for a love that's in bloom
it's a warm and soft embrace
Hoping you'll never be lonely again
It's a fear that you just can't face

[CHORUS]

Life is good and life is grand
When you're sitting on top of the world
Life is good when it's in your hands your hands
And nobody can change your world

[CHORUS]

I'm just waiting, I'm just waiting,
I'm just waiting, I'm just waiting

Jim... either personally going berserk in close combat

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NRDEttOprUs

Oh God forbid this bloody war
I see my knights falling one by one
so here I am, in this fight I'm alone
I'm stuck here in this hellhole on my own

Taste the blood, tears of pain
Memories from the past strike through my mind
My royal blood, begins to boil
Deadly wounds can't stop me now, I still stand strong
I just can't die!!!

Surrender is no option for me now
Bless those souls I send to hell
If you dare just look into my eyes
My steel is warm my face is stained with blood

One by one I hit them to the ground
One by one I see their heads roll
Anyone against me taste my sword
Anyone who'll challenge me will die!

You, killed my men, raped my land & you ruined our lives
Still I stand in command in flames you burn!!!!
You will die by my hand forever you're condemned
Cause I am in command in flames you burn

No it's no use for u to beg, I will send you down to hell
I can't die my faith is far too strong
In flames of hell is where you belong

One by one I hit them to the ground
One by one I see their heads roll
Anyone against me taste my sword
Anyone who'll challenge me will die

And this is the Armorlion's music, or basically anything that expresses the beauty and sadness of mechanized combat in space for Jimmy. These two songs are perfect... yeah I know they're both from MS Igloo.... forgive my complete UC-fanboyness



For her overall, cheerfulness and carefree attitude with some faster, upbeat attitude for her age group to show she's not a little elementary school student anymore.

Moondance by Nightwish



For her fast transitions between being a goody two-shoes of a character to an all-out magician who doesn't throw her punches per say in magical power.

Amunet's Theme Songs

Post by Azriel on Mon May 11, 2009 6:13 am

Amunet was a little bit harder than Sakura, naturally. But, only because Amunet had a lot of things going on in her life before her arrival at the Blaze of Glory. Still, there was a couple of songs that really fit her that I found interesting. I found one to fit her present day self, the way she is now, her goals, and how her mind thinks as opposed to her past self and what she wanted to do the very most.

Nemo by Nightwish



I feel this is a perfect representation of the feelings Amunet has now in the present time concerning her convictions in the past and the consequences she has to atone for now in the present to regain the life she had before and her freedom.

Room of Angel by Akira Yamaoka



Another perfect representation of Amunet's feelings and her attitude in the past. The constrictions she felt within her own home, her feelings for her own family, and possibly what went on in her mind about them rather than thoughts of love one should have for their own blood.

Lady Sigmin's Theme Songs

Post by Azriel on Mon May 11, 2009 6:39 am

Lady Sigmin despite only using her for a brief time already. It wasn't that hard to find songs for her at all. I was trying to find ones that would express her grace, beauty, power, and subtle hint of mystery in her character as best as I could. I was able to find three songs that really help convey her persona. Two of the songs help illuminate her as a female noble with a sense of refinement and mystery, while the remaining one helps clarify the feelings of what it's like to watch, see, or hear her cast magic.

Alegria by Cirque du Soleil



The beginning of this song is a good representation of the kinds of feelings she leaves when she enters; mystery, caution, indifference, curiosity, magic/exotic, etc. The lyrics and voice also help demonstrate the mystic, almost powerful force she commands too, but also gives way to a softer side of her if anything. It also kind of expresses her sad side too in a way and how being a noble is a lot more work than she bargained for. I just really like it for its mystical feel to it and its probably the type of music her race would dance or listen to.

Omega Blue by Yoko Kanno



I like this song for its gentle pace and melody. It also has a somewhat regal tone to it in some ways. It feels like something you could hear off in the background faintly while Sigmin sits on her throne casually. It also expresses her gentle side and her love of wisdom and her own people and kingdom.

Tempus Vernum by Enya



Oddly, this has no other purpose really than to explain the kind of feelings she gives off when she's casting magic or using her sword in combat and training. When she's fighting, Sigmin does retain that air of noble grace as always, but she also gives off a very beckoning, cautious, deadly, and almost frighteningly dark aura about her style. She does very advanced magic that's powerful enough to kill people, so of course, you shouldn't expect anything cheery playing in the background as she does it. (Unless of course you're Nanoha, then it doesn't matter what's going on in the background, you're fucked no matter what.) Still, this kind of does have some noble-like trait to the song, at least the opening. Either way, I feel this song could be used when she's practicing magic or sword fighting. <3

Since I'm playing him actively again, I suppose I should repost O'Re's unofficial theme


Machinae Supremacy - Nemesis

A tour de force, a rabid face
Behind a weapon kept in place
By tortured hands in cold embrace
A battle unconfused by chance,
Come step into our mortal dance
And taste this ironclad romance

For every kill the stronger will
Keeps getting stronger and the thrill
Of such control is wild but still
A single life, what's that to me?
A fading light no one can see
Yet such a pleasure death can be

Used to be a single voice
That vanished in a crowd
Vague just like a distant sun
When hidden by the clouds
Found a way to surface
And to speak my truth aloud
Be powerful, stand fast and proud

A tour de force, a rabid face
Behind the weapon kept in place
By tortured hands in cold embrace
A single life, what's that to me?
A fading light no one can see
Yet such a pleasure death can be

Used to be a single voice
That vanished in a crowd
Vague just like a distant sun
When hidden by the clouds
Found a way to surface
And to speak my truth aloud
Be powerful, stand fast and proud

This song reminds me of Ziz and Angelique.

"Electric" - Luscious Jackson

what do you feel when you look into my eyes baby
does it come to you as a surprise?
i don't care what
other people say
just as long as i'm here with you
won't you come closer...
'cause i can't seem to find
a way to go now

[Chorus]
electric...when we're together
so electric...feelin' like this

all the times we stayed up
all through the night
laughing and dancing 'til the sun come out
then later, when we're lying together
even our stomachs...
they're speaking to each other (rar)
i kiss the ground, i run my fingers through the earth
yes it feels so good to be alive

[Chorus]

kiss the ground
(plant the seed deep)
run my fingers through the earth
(within the heart)
yes it feels so good to be alive
(like a child our love grows bigger everyday)
kiss the ground
run my fingers through the earth
yes it feels so good to be alive

[Chorus x2]

This one too:

Reven and his Hands:

'But Tonight We Dance'

Breathe deep and easy, swallow this pride.
Stare at my shaking hands through bone-dry, blood shot eyes.
Clock strip the hours, I count the miles.
Will you be there waiting, awake until sunrise.

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
So say you'll stay and dance with me tonight.

In the glow of twilight, our world is finally calm.
I felt it complete me, when the stars give way to dawn.
A language universal, but I speak not its tongue.
Is this a night that spans forever, or a dawn that never comes?

I have traveled in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
So say you'll stay and dance with me tonight.

Tomorrow we might wake in servitude and silence
I will give you everything if only you would have me
Tomorrow we will sweat and toil,
Our hands will quiver caked with soil,
Tomorrow we'll give it one last chance,
But tonight we dance,
But tonight we dance!

And for this, I travel in darkness, for what seems like days,
I, come from the sinkholes, collapsed under this weight.
I know not your sorrow, but I know mine,
Just say you'll stay and dance with me tonight.
