I don't know if anyone else is like me and has music that they listen to when writing certain characters or types of scenerios.  I've got certain, "Character Anthems" as it were, and also some songs that just get me pumped to write certain types of scenerios.  I've linked a few songs that remind me of some of my characters/scenerios below and would love to hear any songs that you guys have for your own characters! Or just music that you put on if/when you write. 🙂

Most of the songs below are by Puscifer because I've been on a Maynard kick lately.  His voice is just SO BEAUTIFUL and I'm so jelly of his range, lol.


 

  • First up...TOM-CAT! Honestly this song is so perfect for him, it's scary. Link below and lyrics under the spoiler tag.  I love the line, "It's just a broken heart son/ This pain will pass away"

"Momma Sed"by Puscifer

Spoiler

Momma Sed - LYRICS

 

Wake up, son of mine
Momma got something to tell you
Changes come
Life will have its way
With your pride, son
Take it like a man
 
Hang on, son of mine
A storm is blowing up your horizon
Changes come
Keep your dignity
Take the high road
Take it like a man
 
Listen up, son of mine
Momma got something to tell you
All about growing pains
Life will pound away
Where the light don't shine, son
Take it like a man
 
Suck it up, son of mine
Thunder blowing up your horizon
Changes come (Changes come)
Keep your dignity (Keep your dignity)
Take the high road (Take the high road)
Take it like a man (Take it like a man)
 
Momma said like the rain (This, too, shall pass)
Like a kidney stone (This, too, shall pass)
It's just a broken heart, son
This pain will pass away

 

 

 

  • Second up: RISQUE & DAETH! It's the same song, except two different versions of it.  I confess that I only the remix for Risque because it is soooo sexy in Spanish, lol.  If you only listen to one, listen to the Spanish Fly mix.  So goddamn sexy.

"Undertaker" - Renholder Mix by Puscifer for DAETH

"Undertaker" = Spanish Fly Mix by Puscifer for RISQUE

Spoiler

Undertaker - LYRICS (for both versions)

 

Thank you for making me
Feel like I'm guilty
Making it easy to murder your sweet memory
 
You were way out of line,
Went and turned it all around on me again
How can I not smell your lie,
Through the smoke and elegance.
 
But now I know
So you will not get away with it again
I'm distant in those hollow eyes
For I have reached my end.
 
So...
 
Thank you for making me
Feel like I'm guilty
Making it easy to murder your sweet memory
 
Before I go tell me
Were you ever who you claimed yourself to be?
 
Either way I must say goodbye.
You're dead to me.
 
So I...
 
Thank you for making me
Feel like I'm guilty
Making it easy to murder your sweet memory
 
I'm severing the heart then I'm leaving your corpse behind
Not dead but soon to be, though.
I won't be the one who killed you
I'll just leave that up to you
 
I'm not gonna be here to revive you
I'm not gonna be here to revive you
I'm not gonna be here to revive you
I'm gonna be the one to say...
 
I told you so (X8)
I told you
 
Severing the heart then I'm leaving you corpse behind
Not dead but soon to be and
I'm gonna be the one to say I told you so.

 

 

 

  • Finally, this is my current song I play when I'm planning out an action scene or want to get myself pumped.  It's going to be Daeth's anthem for when he wages a one-Death Angel war on...something. 😉  I dare you not to get pumped up when listening to it, LOL.

"Counting Bodies Like Sheep" - Puscifer

Counting Bodies Like Sheep - LYRICS

Don't fret precious I'm here, step away from the window
Go back to sleep
Safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils
See, they don't give 

 

a fuck about you, like I do

Counting bodies like sheep
Counting bodies like sheep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go to sleep[14x]
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums

Go back to sleep
Go back to sleep

Counting bodies like sheep
To the rhythm of the war drums
To the rhythm of the war drums

I’ll be the one to protect you from your enemies and all your demons
I'll be the one to protect you from a will to survive and a voice of reason
I'll be the one to protect you from your enemies and your choices son
They're one and the same, I must isolate you…
Isolate and save you from yourself …

Alright, here are a few songs that just remind me of other characters.  LOL.  Most of these songs have to do with videogames (heh, sorry) but they still remind me of certain characters or just eerily fit.


 

First up... @irihi

"Nightmares Never End" (Little Nightmares 2 Rap) - JT Music

Spoiler
Nightmares Never End - LYRICS

In the dwindling twilight time is unwinding, lines are blurred
Under the guise of a child into your Nightmare I've been lured
Like a puppet, tied and hung up tightly bound

Your strings I've been strung to, I dream that I'd run away from you if my feet could feel the ground

Now I'm out of the woods, safe and sound as I board up the doors
But once I'm in the clear, and free of all fear, I find that I'm hungry for more
The hunt has begun, hold onto your hats, if it isn't knives, it's eyes in your back
So whether or not you're friendly with rats, pretend you're a mouse in a house full of cats

Pale is the prison they doomed me to dwell
With room for just one, but two in a cell
The dusk is upon us, I knew as it fell
That darkness is honest, are you to yourself?

With my thoughts are distorted and body dysmorphed into monstrous forms of the awfullest sorts

We're locked up with dolls and their hollowed out corpses, all haunted by hunger, the omniscient force

So often my reveries are littered with the debris of my hopes and dreams
As we all grow to be old and bitter, a tale foretold in broken screens

How blinding the glare, your mind is so weak
I'd like you to share this Nightmare with me
I hide in my hood, not to show you my eyes
I know that I'll fail with no coattail to ride

Mannequin paired with marionette
In dissonant discord our deadly duet
We're lost in a lullaby, slumbering away
Where sins remain hidden, but rarely they stay

It was only in my shadow that I'd finally found a friend
Till the light that bound us let go and the devil took my hand
As she closed my eyes remind me once again
What's the dreamer's lie? "Every Nightmare has an end"
Beware the dreamer's lie, every Nightmare has an end
Or you'll be where the dreamers lie, some Nightmares never end

I sleep like the dead, nonetheless I am lucid
If dreams have a meaning, perhaps I should tune in
To the signal that beckons, familiar it seems
Be silent, you might see yourself in its beams

A knife or a noose is with what you'll be met
If you try to play nice and stick out your neck
I thrive in the shadows, untrusting of light
Be warned if you join me, it's just for a bite

I'd rather be lost and lonely
Cause friends aren't meant to last
Thought you finally got to know me
But you've only met the mask
Sad is my dream where the grass is quite green
Turned into a pasture of mesmerized sheep
I'd count them, but why should I bother
In the end they're all meant to be slaughtered

It was only in my shadow that I'd finally found a friend
Till the light that bound us let go and the devil took my hand
As she closed my eyes remind me once again
What's the dreamer's lie? "Every Nightmare has an end"
Beware the dreamer's lie, every Nightmare has an end
Or you'll be where the dreamers lie, some Nightmares never end


 

Next @Pioloss - This one is a song for Dark Souls but I dunno, it totally reminds me of your vamp. 😉

 

"Undead Lullaby" (Dark Souls Song) - JT Music

Spoiler
Undead Lullaby - LYRICS

Deep in the dark
I felt the fire flicker
Ignite the flame and give us life
My cursed mark
And hollow heart grow sicker
Out of the shadow cometh light

Blinding faith, give me sight
Praise the sun, day or night
Break the fog, dark and light
Life and death, black and white
Warmth and cold, wrong and right
Bliss and pain, health and blight
I feel disparity preparing me to die

Kill me? I'd like to see you try
You take my life, I fail to die
The fires fade, now close your eyes
And sing my undead lullaby
The night will fall and swallow light
To fill my dark hollow inside
And yet my death is all but nigh
Sing my undead lullaby
(Sing my undead lullaby)
I sing my undead lullaby
So far from life, yet cannot die
This is my undead lullaby
(I sing my undead lullaby)
My cursed undead lullaby
Sent to my grave, again I rise
To sing my undead lullaby

I was told I must rekindle embers when they dwindle
But it wasn't darkness that marked us with this symbol
It was Gwyn - Lord of Cinder, he's the tinder in the Kiln
Destined me to be undead - least I got an iron will
His infernal Age of Fire's not eternal
Until the flame is out I'll bear the cursed burning circle
I descended from a furtive pygmy yet you'd never know it
'Cause I'm crossing swords with all the Lords and leaving each one Soulless
But it took time until I'd learned that if I'd like to be wiser
Well then I might need to die first, and then I'll be twice the fighter
Lightin' fires, climbin' spires, summon up some knights for hire
The divide between humanity and I is even wider
But I won't stop at any cost, I've forgotten all that I've lost
As I conquer impossible odds, even topple the strongest of gods
And the consequence of resurrection, barely feel alive
At least I got disparity preparing me to die

Kill me? I'd like to see you try
You take my life, I fail to die
The fires fade, now close your eyes
And sing my undead lullaby
The night will fall and swallow light
To fill my dark hollow inside
And yet my death is all but nigh
Sing my undead lullaby
(Sing my undead lullaby)
I sing my undead lullaby
So far from life, yet cannot die
This is my undead lullaby
(I sing my undead lullaby)
My cursed undead lullaby
Sent to my grave, again I rise

 
To sing my undead lullaby

The darkness is falling
And I hear the calling
The shadows are coming
To life
But I won't rekindle
The embers that dwindle
'Cause I sing my undead lullaby

 
 

There's more, but I'll get to it later. 😉

@lassroyale oh wow! That's Pioloss right there! It even has a faint ridiculousness about it! 

Tbh it never even occurred to me to couple music with writing (I tend to write in whatever snatched moments I can get though, which might have something to with it!) But it's an interesting thought. Thinking about it now, I started reading Brian Lumley years ago when californication by RHCP had just come out, and to this day those tunes still put me right back in that world! 

Will have to check out those other links too when I get the chance!
