thelaziesthufflepuff said: for the music meme- Tsuna!

Mogwai - Auto Rock

I love how this track starts out as a very simple piano melody, and then as it continues, it builds slowly in the background, with drums, guitars, synths, and so forth kicking in. And all the while the melody just persistently marches on, and before you know it, what started out as something quiet and almost timid has turned into something powerful and epic. CAN YOU SEE WHY I PICKED THIS TRACK FOR TSUNA.

BONUS:

In-Flight Safety - Big White Elephant

All eyes
Always down
Wake up
Don’t you dare to let us down

This is just an awesome song, and I always like it when a song reminds me of a character both musically and lyrically, as is the case here.

Tsuneo Imahori - Knives (Trigun OST)
Badass, dangerous, and kind of psychotic but like, a fun kind of psychotic. (The track, I should emphasis, as opposed to the eponymous character. XD) It’s also got a lot of electric guitar, which I feel is extremely important for a Squalo track.

Let’s just do all the Mugiwara Pirates :)

The Killers - Battle Born

Did they break your heart?
And did they cause your soul to mourn?
Remember what I said
Boy, you was battle born
'Cause you can't stop now

Come on, show your face
Come on, give us one more spark
So we’ll start a fire
Unless we fall into the dark
And you can’t stop now

I almost can’t even handle how fucking shounen this song gets at about 2 minutes and fifteen seconds in. I am exercising so much willpower in not just copy pasting the lyrics to the entire song you guys you don’t even know.

BONUS:

Muse - Invincible

And during the struggle
They will pull us down
Please please let’s use this chance to
Turn things around
And tonight we can truly say
Together we’re invincible

Pretty much says it all.

Alexandre Desplat - The Accident (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button OST)

WHAT’S THIS COULD IT BE THIS ENTIRE MEME WAS MERELY A THIN PRETENSE FOR ME TO POST MY KHR INSTRUMENTALS FANMIX cuz it sure seems that way I PLEAD THE FIFTH

Okay but anyway, I love the whimsicalness of this piece, but then it’s also got these undertones of craftiness and danger and foreboding, like basically if I were to sum this piece up it would be something like “teeheehee EVIL?!”

Anonymous said: okay so we all knew this one was coming for your music meme: GOKUDERA

:D

Ludovico Einaudi - Primavera

Okay so aside from this being a gorgeous piano piece by an Italian composer that Gokudera would TOTALLY PLAY and you can’t tell me he wouldn’t, the feel of this piece really reminds me of Gokudera. It starts out kind of fragile and lonely, but with this resilient undertone, like the subject of the piece is taking a licking but doing their best to keep on ticking. Then at around 2 minutes in, the piece suddenly kicks it into high gear and it’s all STRINGS!! and DETERMINATION!! and FUCK YEAH THE RAGING STORM THAT DOESN’T END GRARRRR. And it’s just awesome and I love it so much ok.

BONUS:

Hans Zimmer - Mombasa (Inception OST)

So this is another instrumental piece that reminds me of Gokudera because, again, RAGING STORM and all that jazz. Actually, if anything, this might be my Sistema C.A.I. theme song.

The Killers - Bling (Confessions of a King)

How do you know that you’re right
If you’re not nervous anymore?
It’s not so bad, it’s not so bad

Higher and higher, we’re gonna take it
Down to the wire, we’re gonna make it
Out of the fire
Higher and higher

Yamamoto gets a super shounen-y song because fuck yeah Yamamoto. And idk but I just feel like this song has a very Yamamoto vibe to it. Even the way the lyrics use sound effect words like “HOOH” and “pling”, because Yama totally does that and it’s awesome.

BONUS:

Ramin Djawadi - Driving With the Top Down (Iron Man OST)

I have OST tracks picked out for almost all of the main KHR characters. At some point I had vague plans in my head to do a KHR fanmix consisting entirely of instrumental tracks. This one is Yamamoto’s because it’s upbeat and heroic and badass with just a hint of :D to it.

CHARACTER MUSIC MEME

guys please help it’s late Sunday afternoon and I’m bored but I have a laptop and a tumblr and headphones, so I am going to do a meme thing which will be like this

YOU: give me a character from a movie/show/book/thing that I like

I: will respond with a song or OST track that reminds me of that character.

If I don’t have or can’t find a track for a specific character, I’ll just post a random song that I happen to dig. But chances are that I will in fact have a song for whatever character you throw at me, because I’m a weirdo and I just REALLY LIKE PICKING OUT MUSIC FOR CHARACTERS okay go.
