|[||Rocking out to
|||||The Beatles. Again.||]|
And because I can't stop making these things...
Themes for clanmates and the Clan itself. Based of story avatars. Let us begin!
1. "Bohemian Like You" - Dandy Warhols
I'm getting wise and I'm feeling so Bohemian like you
It's you that I want, so please
Just a casual, casual easy thing
Isn't it- it is for me
Alexander's song. The weird one, but not the weirdest one. He's getting there though.
2. "Brand New Colony" - The Postal Service
We'll cut our bodies free from the tethers of this scene
Start a brand new colony
Where everything will change
We'll give ourselves new names
Alexander- strange and quirky. Like this song's style.
3. "Ooh La La" - The Faces
I thought he was a bitter man, he spoke of women's ways
"They'll trap you and they'll use you
Before you even know
For love is blind and you're far too kind
Don't ever let it show."
Andrew Joshua Talon, word for word. No song sums him up better.
4. "Good Man" - Zed
You never had much style about you
We never knew the reason that you
You sat most every hour
And quickly lost your bargaining power
You can't be me, you'll never be
I'm quite convinced you're twice the man we are
Others' view of Mr. Talon.
5. "Nexus" - Sarah Fimm
I'm coming down through the nexus
And I see flurries of energy
And I see visions of Damascus
Of our last kiss
Emily. Far deeper than you'd expect, eh? Still waters, man.
6. "Waiting for the Sun" - Sixpence None the Richer
I'm going nowhere and I'm going to take my time
All the questions in the world
I can leave in my mind
I'm waiting on the sunshine
Emily, the ever optimistic.
7. "Everything is Alright" - Motion City Soundtrack
Give me a reason (I don't believe a word)
To end this discussion (of anything I've heard)
To break with tradition (they tell me that it's not so hard)
To fall and divide (it's not so hard)
So let's not get carried (away with everything)
Away with the process (from here to in-between)
Of elimination (the long goodbye)
I don't want to waste your time.
The perfect "I'm insane" song. Lance Waymire, a man named after nachos.
8. "Last Man on the Moon" - SR-71
And I close my eyes- see how fast time flies
'Cause sunrise comes too soon
And I'm never out of bed before noon
And waking up too late would be too soon
And I could never be Neil Armstrong
I'd be the last man on the moon
A mix of laziness and brilliance. Lancey again.
9. "I Have the Touch" - Peter Gabriel
The time I like is the rush hour, 'cause I like the rush
The pushing of the people, I like it all so much
Such a mass of motion, do not know where it goes
I move with the movement and ... I have the touch
Yep, Lucia. An extremely tactile person with a weird view on life.
10. "Only the Good Die Young" - Billy Joel
And they say there's a heaven for those who will wait
Some say it's better but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners
Than cry with the saints
The sinners are much more fun
You know that only the good die young
Non-conformity wins, eh? The Parent gave me this one as a theme.
11. "Brothers on a Hotel Bed" - Death Cab for Cutie
You may tire of me as our December sun is setting
Because I'm not who I used to be
No longer easy on the eyes but these wrinkles masterfully disguise
The youthful boy below who turned your way and saw
Something he was not looking for- both a beginning and an end
But now he lives inside someone he does not recognize
When he catches his reflection on accident
Lucia's message to Talon. A mix of comfort and discontent.
12. "Killer Queen" - Queen
She keeps Moet et Chandon in her pretty cabinet
’Let them eat cake’, she says, just like Marie Antoinette
Caviar and cigarettes, well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice- she’s a killer queen
Guaranteed to blow your mind anytime
Nueva Maxwell. Both classy and saucy- one hell of a chica.
13. "Johnny Feelgood" - Liz Phair
And I’ve never met a man I was so crazy about
It kinda has become an obsession to me
I hate him all the time but I still get up
When he knocks me down and he orders me around
’Cause it loosens me up and I can’t get enough
Nueva has a few... habits that we're all so fond of, eh?
14. "The Power of Goodbye" - Madonna
There's nothing left to try
There's no place left to hide
There's no greater power
Than the power of good-bye
Nueva to Taro. The most heart-breaking event in the Clan's history.
15. "Cross Bones Style" - Cat Power
Oh how time flies with crystal clear eyes
And cold as coal when you’re ending with diamond eyes
Oh come child, in a crossbones style
Oh come child, come and rescue me
’Cause you have seen some unbelievable things
Silver Raye Adams, the clearest head in the Clan with her own tales to tell.
16. "Jenny Says" - Cowboy Mouth
I've got no reason for the things I fear
The things that plague me when I see and hear
A dime's a nickel and a nickel's none
I throw myself into the Sunday sun
She's also a bit of wildcard at times.
17. "Wonderland" - Dexter Freebish
You sit in a stairwell, there is no sound
You feel like a king that has lost his crown
You're not turning heads in a beat up truck
You think you'll never win because you've got bad luck
Well it might get better because it can't get any worse...
This wonderland- is this the life you thought you would have
This wonderland- is this where you dreamed you'd be at
Taro M.D., in just under four minutes, dreaming of better times.
18. "Ways & Means" - Snow Patrol
If I lied you'd know it instantly
So I just had to look away
All the honesty I've ever lost
I can't begin to even curse
I never knew the taste of blood till now
It's clear I never should have known
Breathing fire was never this much fun
So there's a dark side in us all
The dark side of the Clan's founder- uncompromising and frank.
19. "Enid" - Barenaked Ladies
Maybe we always saw right through each other anyway
But Enid we never really knew each other anyway.
There were times when I wanted to hurt you,
and there were times when I know that I did.
There were times when I thought I would kill you,
but can you blame me I was only a kid.
A most light-hearted look at the Clan's relationships. If you don't laugh, mates, you'll cry.
20. "Flying Dutchman" - Tori Amos
Straight suits, they don`t understand.
She tried that one with the alligator boots but the other side drew her in.
Heart falling fast when she left, even the milky way was dressed in black.
Take a trip on a rocket ship, baby, where the sea is the sky.
I know the guy who runs the place and he`s out of sight.
Flying dutchman are you out there?
Iruka, with her eyes in the sky.
21. "Aquarius" - Mamas and the Papas
Harmony and understanding
Sympathy and trust abounding
No more falsehoods or derisions
Golden living dreams of visions
Mystic crystal revelation
And the mind's true liberation
Everyone in the Clan understands one thing above all else: breaking traditions.
22. "Nos Da Cariad" - David Gray
What is it you’re waiting for?
Sweet love is on its knees
Go to sleep my one true love
And find your heart’s release
Then we’ll be running
Afraid of nothing
Maybe it's over. Maybe it isn't. One thing is certain- it was something amazing.
Consider it free music, if nothing else. And, if you need to write for another character in the story, flip on their image song. It'll help, I promise.
