character ❛ theme ❜ song ?
« on: March 09, 2021, 02:27:41 PM »
Okay so I firmly believe that the songs you associate with your character really help people to get to know your character better?! I mean, I know from experience that when I listen to other writer's character playlists, it helps me to get the vibes that they were going for for their characters. So, with that in mind, I was interested in seeing what you would consider to be your characters' songs. Like, the song that sums them up the best, theme song, inspiration etc. If you don't have a set song that best sums them up, have you got any songs that remind you of them? Share them here so that we can get to know our characters better teehee (also yeah sorry i got excited about music, and i know i have too many characters shh)

Flintlock
Edmund
Haneul
Julian
Lucia
Tommy
William

Badlands
Teddy
Rhett-Gregory

Northstar
Greenie
Donovan
Lucerne

Bluestem
Brock
Cassidy
Eben
Franklin

Loner Lands
Layne
Mollie
Raphael
Xavier

tldr; give me a song or a few songs that sum your character(s) up best, go go go

i come prepared because my life's joy is making playlists for my characters and ships and such.  so, for pyrrhic, i'd say his main song is the villain i appear to be, but i also just have an entire playlist here :,) the playlist is a little more eclectic?  with some songs associating with more specific aspects of his personality/history, etc

You already know this because you recommended the song to me but Cigar by Tamino is definitely Salem! I Don't Trust U Anymore by Left at London is another good one for her.

omg someone else who is also obsessed with character playlists!!! i decided to listen to pyrrhic's main song and OMG IM OBSESSED WITH IT. how haven't i ever heard that song before?? also i totally snooped his playlist and the second i saw miss saigon i was like "YEP IM LISTENING TO THIS WHOLE PLAYLIST NOW". dude the first time i heard that song live i bAWLED it's so beautiful and SAD

You already know this because you recommended the song to me but Cigar by Tamino is definitely Salem! I Don't Trust U Anymore by Left at London is another good one for her.

hehehe dude it's such a GOOD SONG i remember stumbling upon it and instantly being like "omg omg omg i need to go to cas" because it's perfect for salem. also i just listened to the left at london song and i loVE IT?? those lyrics are spot on omg
