Sometimes I listen to stuff and think it'd work well with a certain moment in the series if it were adapted into another television show/movie. Do you guys feel the same way?

Take, for example, Broadchurch's main theme. Once it picks up, it makes me think of the end of #22. Imagine the camera slowly moving backwards as

Yes.  I have imagined star Trek crisis music playing during the cliamatic battle in Megamorphs 4, and music from Lois and Clark (A 1990s series about Superman) playing as Cassie the whale drops onto the Veelek at the end of Megamorphs 1.

We're In This Together by Nine Inch Nails is a huge Anisong for me. Both the instrumentation and lyrics really remind me of Tobias and Rachel, and

PP 8-9 of "The Reaction" : Cassie has told her Mom that NIN is short for "Nice Is Neat", not "Nine Inch Nails".  Cassie had done that so that her Mom would buy her an NIN CD.  Cassie is worried that during the zoo tour, her Mom will reference "Nice Is Neat", which will so embarrass her that she will have to change schools.  It seems to me that there is another issue that Cassie has overlooked: When her Mom references the the rock group "Nice Is Neat", everyone will wonder what she is talking about.  The ensuring discussion would lead to Cassie's Mom learning that NIN means "Nine Inch Nails", at which point she will be mad at Cassie for lying to trick her into buying the CD.

That's true, but is it really relevant to this discussion?

My post discussing Cassie and Nine Inch Nails was in response to a post that discussed Nine Inch Nails.  That seemed relevant enough to me!

Sorry. The first time I read it it seemed pointless and spammy, but in retrospect it was somewhat relevant.

Or Cassie's mom would just listen to "Closer" and learn what it's really like to "work with" animals.
I'm sorry that was awful

Volbeat - Room 24 makes me think of the Yeerk pool.

Just looked up the lyrics.

Well then.


I listened to We're In This Together. Industrial rock isn't my cup of tea, but I can kind of see where you're coming from.

Room 24 is... frankly, terrifying. I think it could work with the YP.

OOOOOOOOOH ew. :o

I imagine the soundtrack of animovie/tv show wouldn't that kind of hard rock you guys are talking about. I imagine it would have bit more softer/indie rock sound

I imagined it to be an orchestral thing - no lyrics, little/no electric guitars... but lots of epic.

Update: Sorry that I keep bringing up Broadchurch, but its music is just... well... *bawls* I'm not allowed to watch the show past season 1, and in fact my mom was uncomfortable with season 1 on its own, but I still love the crap out of it.
Anyway, Beth's Theme would fit REALLY well with

Dude, people who've read the books are going to grasp the NIN reference, no need to explain it all.

But yeah, pretty much anything off NIN's "The Fragile" for me.  Not even so much lyrically, but just the sonic vibe of the whole thing, sort of definitive of that 90s alt-rock feel.  Amazing album too, easily Trent's most complex and layered.  Heaviness, gentle piano melodies, crazy inventive synth stuff, it's just awesome.

Ah, Volbeat are awesome Redtail.  :)  Actually met 'em a while back at a dual Volbeat/Iced Earth show, really cool guys.

Other music I'm pretty sure I've thrown out there in old other threads, Bad Religion's "Come Join Us" is pretty much the perfect The Sharing song.   :D  It's just about cults and lock-step mentalities in general, but man it's so lyrically on-point.  Great melody too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCWPCiHJ8rk


Also The Offspring's album Ixnay On The Hombre, from '97.  Not so much directly addressing the same themes as the books, like the Bad Religion song, but musically it's probably for me the most "nostalgic" of albums in terms of perfectly capturing that pretty specific "sound" of rock bands from the mid-late 90s period the books were being published.  Likely it's the album they're supposed to be playing from in the concert scene with Jake/Marco where they're referenced, too.

Gah, music pretty much died in about '98/'99.  :(  Stupid this-decade-and-the-last-one with its stupidness, heh.

Picked up Angel on DVD.  Joss at his best, simultaneously the darkest & funniest work he's done.

Holy **** man, you like some awesome music! This decade didn't totally suck though, you got a lot of bands putting out great stuff.

Aside from what I already posted, I had a discussion a long time ago about how Ghost of Perdition by Opeth has a lot of parallels with Marco and Visser One. There's also War by Devin Townsend for having similar messages to Animorphs.

Ah, Opeth.   :D  Depressing as hell but somehow make me happy.  Just like Type O Negative, haha.  Doomy & gloomy & ... soothing in their melodic sing-song-y craziness.
