This was one of my favorite topics on the old forums! (http://www.aetolia.com/node/56339)

Basically, just share some songs which make good (or badly good) theme songs for people, guilds, cities, etc.

Moirean: "Commander" (Kelly Rowland) 
Clearly this is going to the new Carnifex standard issue platemail design



Abhorash: "No Scrubs" (TLC)
"No, I don't want no scrub."


Severn (dress included!): "Secret" (The Pierces)
"Got a secret, can you keep it?"



Vampires: "Death on Two Legs" (Queen)
"You suck my blood like a leech....
...Death on two legs 
You're tearing me apart 
Death on two legs 
You've never had a heart of your own 
Kill joy bad guy big talking small fry 
You're just an old barrow boy..."
(because vampires are giving Moi a headache atm >_>)


Carnifex: "Be a Man" (Disney)
"Let's get down to business!
To defeat the Huns Lord Dhar!..
...You're the saddest bunch I ever met,
But you can bet - before we're through -
Mister, I'll make a MAN out of you!"


Toz: "Here Comes The Hammer" (MC Hammer)
"Uh oh. Uh oh. Uh oh.
Uh oh. Uh oh. Uh oh.
Here comes the hammer!"


Iosyne: Supremacy (Muse)
"Greatness dies, unsung and lost, 
Invisible to history...
...The time, it has come to destroy 
Your supremacy."


Moirean (to Khepri *sadface*): "Dark Paradise" (Lana Del Rey)
"Every time I close my eyes, it's like a dark paradise
No one compares to you
I'm scared that you won't be waiting on the other side."


Kog to the crafting approval process: "I Don't Care" (Apocalyptica)
"If you were dead or still alive -
I DON'T CARE
I DON'T CARE"


Bloodloch: "They Are Night Zombies!! They Are Neighbors!! They Have Come Back from the Dead!! Ahhhh!" (Sufjan Stevens)
"We are awakened with the axe
Night of the Living Dead at last
They have begun to shake the dirt
Wiping their shoulders from the earth,"


Angwe (featuring various Duiran cameos):

The Divine voice of Razmael echoes in your head, "God of imps."
Eugenides says to you, "Imp, Are you sure you were not born a Troll?"
The Divine voice of Arion echoes in your head, "Every time I try to punish you for being so flippant, I find Myself laughing instead."

    This was the song I attributed to Kiyotan McCloud, Enorian Paladin:


    And this is the theme song of Kiyotan dur Naya, Duiran Sentinel: 


    This, I feel, suits Duiran:


    Once, after Kiyo and Siba broke up, I heard this song and found it oddly appropriate:

    Some may say we've lost our way, but I believe we've not gone far enough.

    Since people only ever seem to post songs with lyrics, I'm going to pose a challenge for you guys. Make up an ambient soundtrack for Aetolia as if it were a movie or video game. For areas, cities, people, or events, but the music can't have lyrics (with the exception of chanting). Just interested in seeing what people come up with.

    This guy's work is basically how I imagine Aetolia's real soundtrack: http://adrianvonziegler.bandcamp.com

    Or, if you fancy a nice long playlist: 
    The Divine voice of Razmael echoes in your head, "God of imps."
    Eugenides says to you, "Imp, Are you sure you were not born a Troll?"
    The Divine voice of Arion echoes in your head, "Every time I try to punish you for being so flippant, I find Myself laughing instead."

    @Phoenecia: Challenge accepted.

    This is the soundtrack to a city getting raided, from the perspective of the citizen:


    And this, without a doubt, is Spinesreach's theme song:

    Some may say we've lost our way, but I believe we've not gone far enough.

    The irony is not lost.

    I also second MGMT's Electric Feel for Duiran. And it's such a great video!

    I've been trying to think of who this reminds me the most of, and I've got to say it rings somewhat of an @Areka vibe. It's maybe a little more hardcore, and I haven't gotten to interact with her in a while, but it definitely reminds me of a pissed off Troll woman that follows Damariel. Maybe even Damariel's order as a whole.

    That said, I feel like this could also apply to a few other people, but that was the first that came to mind.

    Lyrics:

    How can you act like you know
    
When all you know is to lie?
    Another truth to expose,
    Freedom will capture their eyes.
    We find this truth
    
We fight. You lose.

    Your time’s up now.
    
That’s enough now.
    Shut up, get out!

    Truth called you out.

    I know this language of yours
--
    I used to speak it so well.
    
A fire meant to be pure
    Is now the fire of Hell.
    It is written 
    Long before you.

    Your time’s up now.

    That’s enough now.
    Shut up, get out!

    Truth called you out.

    I hear your claims,
    And I know your name;
    
I hear your claims, 

    And I know your name:

    Liar.
    
Liar.

    Your time’s up now.

    That’s enough now.
    Shut up, get out!

    Truth called you out.

    Your time’s up now.

    That’s enough now.
    Shut up, get out!

    Truth called you out.

    Totally Piper's song. I imagine there's probably a lot of immature screaming and hotheaded arguing/cussing over the song, though.

    ^ Illidan's theme song. The lyrics (to the sung version) also fit!
                                    
                 Faaaaaaaaaaabulous!                                          Adorable!                                                               UHMAYZING!

    Illidan said: You already knew that there's some dumb-as-unicorns attention mongering wanna-be troll going around and robbing people.
    Calipso said: For the first time on the forums, Im actually 100% in agreement with Illidan.

    Moi's view of herself:
    Hurt, NIN (Johnny Cash cover)
    "Everyone I know goes away 
    In the end 
    And you could have it all 
    My empire of dirt 
    I will let you down 
    I will make you hurt 

    I wear this crown of thorns 
    Upon my liar's chair 
    Full of broken thoughts 
    I cannot repair"


    What Moi pretends to the world:
    World's Greatest, R. Kelly (Will Oldham cover)
    "I'm that star up in the sky
    I'm that mountain peak up high
    Hey I made it 
    I'm the world's greatest
    I'm that little bit of hope
    When my backs against the ropes
    I can feel it 
    I'm the world's greatest
    the world greatest."


    For some reason, I kinda associate Moi with country-ish music, as much as I wish I could be smoky, sexy, raspy blues. Like, with country music, there's great room for pain and anger, love and anguish, but something about the guitar twangs always seem to have a little bit of potential comedy lurking, just ready to pull a Billy Ray Cyrus and get stupidsilly on stuff.

    Heard this song on the radio on the way home, and I was like, yep, that's Toz to Moi:
    "Next to Me" by Emeli Sande
    "When the end has come and buildings falling down fast
    when we spoilt the land and dried up all the sea
    when everyone has lost their heads around us
    you will find him, you'll find him next to me"

    The Divine voice of Razmael echoes in your head, "God of imps."
    Eugenides says to you, "Imp, Are you sure you were not born a Troll?"

    This is a no-brainer:

    Iosyne - "Raining Blood" by Slayer
    Trapped in purgatory
    A lifeless object, alive
    Awaiting reprisal
    Death will be their acquisition

    The sky is turning red
    Return to power draws near
    Fall into me, the sky's crimson tears
    Abolish the rules made of stone

    Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
    Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above

    Awaiting the hour of reprisal
    Your time slips away

    Raining blood
    From a lacerated sky
    Bleeding its horror
    Creating my structure
    Now I shall reign in blood!

    "The Good Life" by Weezer
    "Broken, beaten down can't even get around...
    Shivering in the cold, I'm bitter and alone...
    …And I don't wanna be an old man anymore...
    It's time I got back to the Good Life
    It's time i got back, it's time i got back
    And I don't even know how I got off the track
    I wanna go back…"

    Ala's theme song.

    The knowledge that seeking the favor of another
    Means the murder of self.
    This is the resolution
    The end of all progress
    The death of evolution
    It bleeds all life away.
    Silence speeds the path to the streams of solace that run so few and narrow.
    Brooks that babble the sounds of torture.
    You will one day rise
    To flood the banks of the chosen.
    This is the art of ruin.
    This is the resolution
    The end of all progress
    The death of evolution
    It bleeds all life away.
    I will show you all that I have mastered
    Fear. Pain. Hatred. Power.
    This is the art of ruin.

    Much of Nine Inch Nails' album The Fragile was an inspiration for Azudim Lin, but the titular "The Fragile" is what I'd consider her theme song at the moment, especially:

    She reads the minds of all the people as they pass her by // Hoping someone can see

    Moi to Lin <3 I swear >_>

    Pink Floyd - "One of These Days"

    "One of these days, I'm going to chop you into little pieces."



    Aside from being one of my favorite songs ever, I think its progression is interesting, getting darker as it goes on, but driven by an upbeat melody. The song overall soars even through the discordance and seems to thrive on it, which is kinda how Moi currently views her relationship to Lin - something solid from who she was, before she changed sides and was gone, so in a way it's a positive thing.
