Character Theme Songs or Theme music

Post by Penryn » Mon Oct 13, 2003 6:35 am

Often within stories, novels, songs, movies, even video games heros and villians are portayed by famous themes. Consider for a moment what would indiana jones be without his theme, or darth vader without the imperial march? I am just curious (hope this is an allowable topic on here but thoguh might make for light debate) what songs might fit all of your characters or you invision fitting them :)

Sincerely,
Penryn

Well, I think you'll find some characters already have theme songs in game. Before my notepad containing all my work -ever- got trashed I think I had at least 4 or 5 songs about other characters.

However, to keep in spirit I'd have to say Stealers Wheel and their track "Stuck in the Middle With You" would work out best.

*GRIN*

Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (O Fortuna) movement from the Carmina Burana opera by Carl Orff.

http://www.sonyclassical.com/releases/47668_tracks.htm

The above link is just a sample of the piece. I'm sure you've heard it before (theme music for King Arthur's last charge in the movie "Excalibur" and dozens of other movies). Please, go buy the CD and enjoy! The entire opera is simply... magnificent!

There's a MIDI version of it, but it loses a lot without the full orchestral scale and chorus.

Broadsword Medley for myself, though I'm in no way not partial to Howard Shore's wonderful work which makes me think of simpler times ans crisp weather.

PC Theme songs

Post by Belose » Mon Oct 13, 2003 8:52 pm

Well, the only OBVIOUS choice for me is the theme song to The Absent-minded Professor.... but I don't know what it is.... I'd love to take Dr. Dolittle's Talk to the Animals, <the original with Rex Harrison, not Eddie Murphy>, but that would be more for Druids or Rangers.... So if I have to use a song I know, I end up with Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang. 8)

Theme Song

Post by Saiden » Mon Oct 13, 2003 9:15 pm

Well... given my characters full attitude, nature, and of course...profession... only one song resinates in my head to say is worthy of being Saiden's theme song... it is

Prison Bound, by Social Distortion

That'll have to work until someone writes a song with the theme of "Still Locked Up" or "Breakin' Out!" :P

I have thought this over, and have come to a conclusion,

As I am a game fan, I took this from Lufia 2 mountains, it has a lot of power and strength, and yet feels noble, here is a link so you can hear what I mean.

Alright guys....if you have ever played the original baulder's gate for PC, then you may know that you can play music from it, including Minsc's theme song. I think this would be Lukian's. Thanks :)

I'm surprised no one picked Wagner - The Ride of the Valkyries
or Holst, Gustav - The Planets - Mars, Bringer of War

I would pick:
Berlioz, Hector - Symphonie Fantastique - Marche au supplice

Alright...boredom has taken the best of me. Lets see....my little Nysan's theme song.... Highway to Hell by ACDC seems about right. Doubt anyone would disagree. :twisted:

I'd say Twyrnea's theme would probably be...

"Tell Me What Love Is" from the Marriage of Figaro.

:snicker:
Twyrnea Aethier - Twice Marked
Riraven Llura - Wandering Nesse of Evermeet
Amnis of the Sword Coast, novice priestess

PC Theme songs revisited

Post by Belose » Wed Oct 15, 2003 3:23 pm

Uhm, I have to revise my theme song...... I'm not sure if anyone actually has seen those movies, and therefore probably don't understand the signifigance of the songs in relation to the movies and how they relate to me.. sooooooo.... I've decided that Belose's Theme Song *IS*.....
