I may have shared this before, but to this day this song gives me strong Eva vibes and I love it. create a beast, made a man without a soul~

New Frontier by Iron Maiden wrote:Bleeding you dry from the start
The sum of my parts
To give it away
New life in a day
Some new Frankenstein
Damned for all time

Cursed by the angel who fell
Who saves me from hell?
And who is my god?
And where is my soul?
Too tired to jump too young to run

Never ending, forever searching
Chasing dreams, the dreams of my heart
Always seeking, always asking
Questions right from the start

Out beyond the new frontier
Playing god without mercy, without fear
Create a beast, made a man without a soul
Is it worth the risk, a war of god and man?
Is it worth the risk, a war of god and man?

I want to end my life now
But I don't know how
Recycled again a lifetime of pain
The spawn of a man
The devil has planned

Never ending, forever searching
Chasing dreams, the dreams of my heart
Always seeking, always asking
Questions right from the start

Out beyond the new frontier
Playing god without mercy, without fear
Create a beast, made a man without a soul
Is it worth the risk, a war of god and man?
Is it worth the risk, a war of god and man?

Might have been posted before but this gem by "U2" fits so many characters and works even on a meta level.

I'm likely defeating the purpose of this topic, but I've been an Utada Hikaru fan pre-falling into EVA universe. Was really surprised to find Beautiful World and Sakura Nagashi were written/composed specifically for Rebuild because I've been listening to those songs since release. It was definitely some knowledge I passed by in the past but did not retain, probably because I did not care about EVA at the time. Now I don't think I can ever not be able to associate these two songs with EVA.

The Escapist - Coldplay

Lyrics wrote:And in the end
We lie awake
And we dream
Of making our escape

And in the end
We lie awake
And we dream
Of making our escape


I always connect this song to episode 25 and 26.

Who Will Know by Shirō Sagisu

If I die in this world,
who will know something of me?

I am lost,
no-one knows,
there's no trace of my yearning

If I die

But I must
In this world,
carry on,
who will know
nothing worse
something of me?
can befall.

I am lost,
All my fears,
No-one knows,
All my tears,
there's no trace
tell my heart
of my yearning
there's a hole.

I wear a void,
not even hope,
a downward slope,
is all I see.

I wear a void,

As long as breath comes from my mouth,
not even hope,
I may yet stand the slightest chance,
a downward slope,
a shaft of light is all I need,
is all I see.
to cease the darkness killing me.


Even when he's not doing Evangelion soundtracks, Mr. Sagisu still gives me that depressing vibe.

Shameless YouTube self promotion FTW.

I agree, Who Will Know would fit well in 3.0+1.0 and I half expect it to be there similarly to Shin Godzilla and Decisive Battle.

I can think of one:

Metallica-Hardwired

The chorus just sums up Evangelion perfectly:

We're so fucked
Shit outta luck
Hardwired to self-destruct
My ROFLcopter goes Soi soi soi.
