Can you describe your character with song lyrics?

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Diana, Nov 21, 2009.

  1. I think I posted this topic on old Iwaku, and it's worth posting again because it's so much fun!


    Pick your character, any characters. And find a song that is so them post the lyrics from the song that really seem to sum up that character, and tell us why!
     
  2. Dario, although I haven't developed him much, could be described by the song "Im too sexy" because is is obsessed with his looks. Often times he will look at himself in the mirror or comb his hair for hours.
     
  3. Oh geez.

    Well, Maggie went down with the Sea Raven, but her song was An Bad Dubh by Clann Zu.

    "In their boats you watch them rise
    Over waves and crests of white
    I'm closer to you now.
    Your voice is falling as we rise
    Over swells in falling light
    I'm closer to you now.
    In the morning you're standing there
    Above the waves in half time air
    I'm closer to you now.
    I'm closer to you now."

    Because she was MEANT to be having an affair with some mysterious sea monster.

    Eddie locked away in Hargonstein has Climb Up The Walls on repeat

    "I am the keys to the lock in your house
    That keeps the toys in the basement
    And if you get too far inside
    You'll only see my reflection
    It's always best when the light is off
    I am the pick in the ice
    Do not cry out or hit the alarm
    You know we're friends till we die...
    So lock the kids op safe tonight
    Shut the eyes in the cupboard
    I got the smell of a local man
    Who's got the lonliest feeling...
    And either way you turn, I'll be there
    Open up your skull, I'll be there.
    Climb up the walls..."

    From Radiohead- I think I'm missing a verse though. Because he's supposed to be overly friendly/creepy and that puts me in about the write place mentally to try to write him.

    And Aya's not my character but dammit he's got a freaking soundtrack. Seriously, on my computer I have an "A. Fujimiya Playlist"

    My favorite first,

    "She sells anger
    And the whole world has to pay...
    She reeks of danger
    Aren't these games such fun to play
    And does she weep sincerely?
    Or does she only pay amends?

    She'll never say she's sorry,
    no one has ever seen her bend.
    She'll never say she's lonely,
    No one will ever take her hand.

    And is the world still watching as she drownes herself to sleep?"
    -Specifically from She sells anger by Poni Hoax, even though the song is about a girl (yes I know that!).

    Three Days Grace's (I'm not fond of them but it is possible the best song for Aya whether or not I like it.) Riot:

    "If you feel so empty
    So used up,
    So let down
    If you feel so angry
    So ripped off,
    So stepped on
    You're not the only one
    Refusing to back down.
    You're not the only one-
    So get up!

    Let's start a riot!

    If you feel so filthy,
    So dirty,
    So fucked up,
    If you feel so walked on,
    So painful,
    So pissed off,
    You're not the only one
    Refusing to go down.
    You're not the only one-
    So get up!

    Let's start a riot!

    If you feel so empty
    So used up, so let down
    If you feel so angry
    Just get up!"

    But then again that song was more a fit of the series I thought. Hey, it's not ANY WORSE than the music the directors put to the series!

    ...Oh, I completely forgot about Feedback's Flare RP, I think I submitted a little boy... I can't remember the name but the song I was listening to was Listen Now by The Knife

    "Listen now, I am afraid of everything.
    When you told me I was special,
    It was the happiest moment in a long long time!
    Listen now!
    I keep forgetting your name-
    When you laid down on the kitchen floor,
    It was the happiest moment for a long long time!"

    Followed by some shady english I couldn't understand but sounded kinda... ominous.

    Indestructible, Distrubed

    Another mission, the powers have called me away
    Another time to carry the colors again
    My motivation, an oath I've sworn to defend
    To win the honor of coming back home again

    No explanation will matter after we begin
    Unlock the dark destroyer that's buried within
    My true vocation and now my unfortunate friend
    You will discover a war you're unable to win

    I'll have you know
    That I've become

    Indestructible
    Determination that is incorruptible
    From the other side, a terror to behold
    Annihilation will be unavoidable

    Every broken enemy will know
    That their opponent had to be invincible
    Take a last look around while you're alive
    I'm an indestructible master of war!

    Another reason, another cause for me to fight
    Another fuse uncovered now, for me to light
    My dedication to all that I've sworn to protect
    I carry out my orders without a regret

    My declaration embedded deep under my skin
    A permanent reminder of how it began
    No hesitation when I am commanded to strike
    You need to know that you're in for the fight of your life

    You will be shown
    How I've become

    Indestructible
    Determination that is incorruptible
    From the other side, a terror to behold
    Annihilation will be unavoidable

    Every broken enemy will know
    That their opponent had to be invincible
    Take a last look around while you're alive
    I'm an indestructible master of war!

    I'm indestructible
    Determination that is incorruptible
    From the other side, a terror to behold
    Annihilation will be unavoidable

    Every broken enemy will know
    That their opponent had to be invincible
    Take a last look around while you're alive
    I am indestructible

    Indestructible
    Determination that is incorruptible
    From the other side, a terror to behold
    Annihilation will be unavoidable

    Every broken enemy will know
    That their opponent had to be invincible
    Take a last look around while you're alive
    I?m an indestructible master of war!


    The reason for using this particular song for Carl is because to leg infantry main battle tanks are an invincible monstrosity, especially when they plow through without warning. Carl is an armor and artillery commander, using field howitzers to support the forward drive of his tanks.


    Lieutenant Julius Ryker, 8TH Commandos, the 'Angin' Patriots, Independent State Army.

    Mr. Badguy, Freddie Mercury

    Let's go chasing rainbows in the sky
    It's my invitation
    Let's all take a trip on my ecstasy
    I'm Mr. Bad Guy
    Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
    Can't you see I'm Mr. Mercury
    Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.

    Your big daddy's got no place to stay
    Bad <nobr>communication</nobr>
    I feel like the president of the USA

    Mr. Bad Guy
    Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
    Can't you see I'm Mr. Mercury
    Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.

    I'm Mr. Bad Guy
    They're all afraid of me
    I can ruin people's lives
    Mr. Bad Guy they're all afraid of me
    It's the only way to be
    That's my destiny
    Mr. Bad Guy, Mr. Bad Guy, Bad Guy

    It's the only way for me
    It's my destiny

    Mr. Bad Guy
    Yes I'm everybody's Mr. Bad Guy
    Can't you see this is my destiny
    Oh, spread your wings and fly away with me.


    The reasons for using this song for Ryker is simply because Ryker considers himself a 'Mr. Badguy' of sorts. He has ruined peoples lives in war and in peace. As for the Mr. Mercury line, well... Ryker idolizes Freddie, 'nuff said.

  6. Annalilly from Quest for Drymera fits Superchic[k]'s song "Stand in the Rain"

    She never slows down.
    She doesn't know why but she knows that when she's all alone, feels like its all coming down
    She won't turn around
    The shadows are long and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down

    [CHORUS]
    So stand in the rain
    Stand your ground
    Stand up when it's all crashing down
    You stand through the pain
    You won't drown
    And one day, whats lost can be found
    You stand in the rain

    She won't make a sound
    Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she'll fall down
    She wants to be found
    The only way out is through everything she's running from wants to give up and lie down.

    [CHORUS]
    So stand in the rain
    Stand your ground
    Stand up when it's all crashing down
    You stand through the pain
    You won't drown
    And one day, whats lost can be found
    You stand in the rain

    So stand in the rain
    Stand your ground
    Stand up when it's all crashing down
    Stand through the pain
    You won't drown
    And one day, whats lost can be found

    [CHORUS]
    So stand in the rain
    Stand your ground
    Stand up when it's all crashing down
    You stand through the pain
    You won't drown
    And one day, whats lost can be found
    You stand in the rain


    && that one Dananachan rp where my character, Annie, was separated from her fiancee because of an intergalactic space war ~

    goes with "Thunder" by BoyslikeGirls

    Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
    Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    Today in the blink of an eye I'm holding on to something and I do not know why
    I tried

    I tried to read between the lines
    I tried to look in your eyes
    I want a simple explanation
    For what I'm feeling inside
    I gotta find a way out
    Maybe there's a way out

    Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you're unlike any other?
    You'll always be my thunder, and I said
    Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
    I don't wanna ever love another
    You'll always be my thunder
    So bring on the rain
    And bring on the thunder

    Today is a winding road
    Tell me where to start and tell me something I don't know
    Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    Today I'm on my own
    I can't move a muscle and I can't pick up the phone
    I don't know (I don't know, I don't know, I don't know)

    And now I'm itching for the tall grass
    And longing for the breeze
    I need to step outside
    Just to see if I can breathe
    I gotta find a way out
    Maybe theres a way out

    Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you're unlike any other?
    You'll always be my thunder, and I said
    Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
    I don't wanna ever love another
    You'll always be my thunder
    So bring on the rain

    Yeah I'm walking on a tightrope
    I'm wrapped up in vines
    I think we'll make it out
    But you just gotta give me time
    Strike me down with lightning
    Let me feel you in my veins
    I wanna let you know how much I feel your pain

    Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
    Whoa

    Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you're unlike any other?
    You'll always be my thunder, and I said
    Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
    I don't wanna ever love another
    You'll always be my thunder
    So bring on the rain
    And bring on the thunder, and I said
    Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
    Do you know you're unlike any other?
    You'll always be my thunder
    So bring on the rain
    Oh baby bring on the pain
    And listen to the thunder
     
  7. You know, I'll never be fulfilled until I get to identify a character with Manowar's Dark Avenger
     
  8. Hmmm.

    For Kozche I like Have A Nice Life's song Hunter. It's depressing and hopeless and still has this nice sarcastic edge to it that just suits his little angst fits

    "Hunter I'm-
    Laid out on the forest floor,
    Arrows in my back and sides.
    Down among the leaves and stones...

    You can wear-
    My skin as armor.
    You can eat my flesh and bones.
    Leave nothing that is needed-
    All I have is yours.

    And I give myself up to your-
    Sharpened edges...
    I no longer cling to my life, yes,
    I'm finally giving in.

    Teeth and hate-
    End our relationship.
    Of course it's sad-
    But that's the way it is.

    Your violence always wins the day.
    (Yes, your violent ways...)

    And I give myself up to your-
    Sharpened edges...
    I no longer cling to my life, yes,
    I'm finally giving in.

    Oh!
    And you watch
    As the animals lay themselves down at your feet.
    A thousand beard teeth-
    A thousand bowed heads-
    Yes, they're begging you for death!

    The hunter does us all a great service.
    And we've done so much to deserve it."

    secret robo agent with a secret robo plan

    lock your doors air-tight
    the tin can hit man's coming for you tonight

    Smasher Devouerer
    Fear Factory
    Obsolete

    Fear me not but fear my hell
    Men made me so I could kill
    Praise me in the name of war
    I destroy both rich and poor

    I am the way, prepare for salvation
    I am the way, prepare for salvation

    Strength in time of suffering
    Man alone is a weakling
    Ascension is what you ask
    I will be the fall of man

    I am the way, prepare for salvation
    I am the way, prepare for salvation

    Salvation...

    Those of you who dare to stray
    I will tear your mind away
    Those of you who dare to stray
    I will take your life away


    I chose Tin Can Hitman as Desolator is kind of a... tin can hitman. As he's on the Independent State Marine Corps' payroll it could be said that he collects 'bounties' for those he's killed.

    Besides, most of it goes to his whisky fund any way.

    As for Smasher Devouerer it should be obvious. Everyone is a target in war. He will kill you regardless of who you are. As for the salvation part I'll let the following do the talking:

    'Only the dead have seen the end of war.'

  10. Special case here.

    Lieutenant S. Travis, 84TH Experimental Weapons Battalion, Growling Wyverns.

    For those not in the know, Lieutenant Travis was the recipient of a blob wyvern soul during the Admin War. He received a decent number of the wyvern's traits, including hermaphrodism. So Lieutenant Travis has C-Cups full of Justice and seven inches of man meat.

    Fortunately the Individual Body Armor flak jacket covers his torso pretty well.
