hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

Oooo!  I didn't even know this was here!  Nine alts, nine songs.  I don't expect everyone to listen to them all, the links are just in case you haven't heard one of them already.  Also, I apologize if someone's already got these.


Gracenys Sandtracker: Crazy Train.  The crazy halfling barb.  Too much rage in a non-orc-related species has degraded her memory pretty badly, but she wasn't really bright or balanced to begin with.


Denba Brokentusk:  I Will Be Heard.  The sane half-orc barb.  Never gets completely berserk, but the anger's always there.  In contrast to Gracenys, she's probably too smart for her own good.


Xymorel Trannyth: Basket Case.  Paranoid insomniac human sorcerer. Xymorel has chronic resurrection sickness from the number of times she's been killed in-game.  She is afraid of basically everyone when she first meets them.


Xyries Chorster: Lean On Me.  Stern cleric and Xymorel Trannyth's elder sister.  Xyries' entire stated purpose in life is to support and heal others, but she herself needs a fair amount of support from the others in her life.


Ondranar Palerose: Losing My Mind.  This is instrumental.  It starts out very contemplative and gets more complex and frantic.  Ondranar is an Aereni archmage/illusionist, but he hates to lie.  This is fairly symptomatic of the kind of knots he tends to tie himself in on a regular basis.  Either that, or Carry On My Wayward Son by Kansas.


Keridor the Crooked: Hurt, Johnny Cash version.  Keridor is a gravetouched ghoul, once a human fighter.  He sees this life as his afterlife, as everything real being over for him.  It's not so much the lyrics of this song as the voice and the sound and feel of age and fatigue that it conveys.


Shurjra Baen'rett: Somebody To Love.  Sulatar drow rogue.  Freed from an evil master, she clings very tightly to her new family.


Quindros and Veldros Xydorith: The Cave. I like this one better for these two because it's a little grim but it's still about hope and determination.  It makes more sense if it's from Veldros's perspective, now that I think about it (I won't let you choke... I'll know my name when it's called again).


Still looking for a good trust-related song for Thelydd that isn't overtly romanticlike.

Also just found this thread

Arachan: As my most developed character, I have all kinds of songs that fit him, so here's some of them. Skellig Beloved Wife Dust in the Wind Never-Ending Road Dante's Prayer Con te Partiro. I could probably find more, but I'm lazy

This one fits for all of the d'Arachani: The Old Man

Daisliv: Stay With Me Mad World

Will do ones for me other characters as I find/think of songs for them.

Love the song for Vali Jags, the tie in is awesome.



I've actually been working on this for Smudge for a while. Like most things, I can't just pick one. Sooo, when I come across a song that fits, I huck it onto a youtube playlist.

Playlist is here: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL50ABD39E317D549F&feature=mh_lolz

Songs are:
Tina Dico: Count to Ten (not necessarily my type of music, but she has a nice voice and the lyrics fit, and somehow the song has grown on me)

They Might Be Giants: She's Actual Size (bwahaha)

Linkin Park: Somewhere I Belong (Until she found the Fellowship that is.)

Foo Fighters: Rope

Foo Fighters: Walk (Other than the never gonna die part, unless you look at it figuratively in that she's too stubborn to give up. This is where she is right now.)

Grateful Dead: Touch of Grey (Suits her personality-wise. I will get by.)

Jungle Book: That's What Friends are For

Offspring: Gone Away (for the one she lost)

-------------------

Ooh. A couple for Nuadia.

Bridge Over Troubled Water (fits the Smudgie too, actually)

Enya - May it Be

Jags, it's been a long time since I heard that song!

Thank you, but it's still not really what I'm looking for.  It's kind of hard to describe, but I guess it's one of those 'I'll know it when I hear it' sort of things.  I'll keep looking!  *hugs*

I suppose sometime I should think about songs for a few other characters, but not today...

One for Ragyr. Pretty self explanatory.

One for Retyr, though I know I haven't done much with him RP-wise. It fits perfectly though.

Well, since I'm not holding the BGMs in my sig anymore, I might as well make this post a wee more useful.



Reuken Kjersti:
The Lion Bears Its Blades (Super Robot Wars Z)
Events both recent and not-so-recent have reconstructed and twisted this half-elf into something not quite normal, trying to live in a society so different from what he is used to. Though he is not entirely the ruthless automaton of horror others have seen him as, he's repressed his more empathic side to the point where he has difficulty demonstrating it--and other such "human" emotions--openly, especially during the times when he needs support the most. While he is changing, albeit slowly, only time and future events will tell if he will change for the better...or worse.



Rackety Ricket
For Whose Sake (Eiji Nakagawa - Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War Arranged Soundtrack
Research and Development (Robotrek)
An Artificer in all but name, 628 (aka "Rackety Ricket") can coax even the most stubborn magical artifacts to life and has a fondness for the numbers "0" and "1". It likes constructs and machinery--especially tinkering with them--but has no understanding of emotions beyond the strictly technical, which makes handling its thoughts over its current situation difficult at best.

I was recently pointed to this song by a friend. I'll use it until it dies or I find something better...

I finally found a perfect one for Thelydd! Don't Believe by Seether.  Thelydd's most outstanding personal trait is that she is constantly and deeply involved with people, but she does not trust people, even the ones she likes or cares about.  She is often in the position of knowing people better than they know her, and she knows this is wrong, but it's become such a pattern that she can't get out of it on her own.

----

And wow, I've added a few alts since the last time I posted to this thread!

For human wizard Caldhain Doriand, there's Leech by Eve 6.  Caladhain is a neutral evil.  He lives in House Jorasco, where he is known for his altruistic rescue of children from necromancers.  Lying is very much like breathing for him at this point.

For Bearer and Comforter, there's All Is Full Of Love by Bjork.  Bearer is a warforged, originally created as a caregiver for children who have since grown up.  She wants to hug everyone and make them feel better.  That's not always possible, but she tries.

And finally, for Berwilin Shesorol, there's Show Me How to Live by Audioslave.  Berwilin just spent a year in Dolurrh.  He is very literally learning how to be alive again.

Posting for a new character, Contrive and his little dog Bulwark. Found two songs that, back to back, summarize/inspired his backstory. Any reference to "you" in these songs are "you" in general, "you" in relation to House Cannith, and "you" in regards to various/certain participants in the Last War.

Both are by the Barenaked Ladies as well, who seem to be a big source of inspiration, looking back at other things I've posted/characters I've explored. I'm not complaining, of course. Thankfully, the lead singer's voice is also very close to what I'd like Contrive to sound like. Double win.

First:

Maybe You're Right (Sorry for the slightly low quality. Best I could find.)

Leads into:

Take It Back (Sorry for the live quality, but I like it just as much as the original.)

Because I have Voulge on the mind, I'm going to bump this, despite me being the last one to post in it.

And it may not make sense to you at all, but nearly anything by Caravan Palace seems to fit Voulge for me. Most specifically, Clash. Though Rock It For Me also feels like it fits a bit more than others too.

I think it's the vibe and beat that it gives off, works for Voulge. Sounds twitchy and paranoid at times, and doesn't always make sense, but it has a bit of purpose to it, a bit of class. But it's a jumbled mess at first glance, like him.
