For fun, I want everyone to make guess to what songs are playing in Shinji's SDAT player. Rules that the songs can't be released in 2015, has to be one of your favorites and also relates to the character, and you must include up to ten.

Feel free to list what songs you've heard from the playlist like this: 3/7.

My choices:

How to Disappear Completely - Radiohead
Non-Zero Possibility - At the Drive-In
Tear Drop - Massive Attack
In the Aeroplane Over the Sea - Neutral Milk Hotel
Running Up That Hill (Making a Deal with God) - Kate Bush
Roads - Portishead
Hey You - Pink Floyd
Disorder - Joy Division
Midnight in a Perfect World - DJ Shadow
Anywhere Can Be Paradise as Long As I Have the Will to Live...

...after all, I am Alive, So I'll Always Have the Chance to Be Happy.

For bonus points, only include songs that a Japanese boy such as Shinji would be likely to know about without stretching suspension of disbelief.

    Track 28: In The End, Linkin Park, “Hybrid Theory” (2000)
    Track 29: -BLANK-
    Track 30: -BLANK-

Some of the songs are left over form Gendo, namely all the tracks from before 2000, but Shinji kept them as he liked them, and he felt connected to his parents through the music. These and how he edited the tape will be coming up in Chapter 11 of Episode III, so for now please, listen and enjoy. All songs can be found on youtube

Thinking about it more, so many Radiohead songs can be applied the series itself...thinking about the End of Eva ending with Motion Picture Soundtrack... :tongue:

If we want to go for the obvious, just slap Creep onto the playlist.

And how about some metal in the mix?

What was the name of the artist that Shinji was listening to in girlfriend of Steel? I watched a playthrough of the game and Asuka got mad and smashed his SDAT. To which he said something along the lines of.

"NOOOOO! My __________!"

What was the name of the artist he said?

Send me the video via PM.

This could also be a chance for me to look at Gao games without thinking of Welcome to the NHK.

IIRC he says something along the lines of "My...My Walkman..." and doesn't make reference to any particular song/band.

That scene was just cruel, and further cements my opinion that Girlfriend of Steel is the most hilariously awful "official" thing Evangelion has ever shat out.
