Anywhere can be paradise as long as you have the will to live. After all, you are alive, so you will always have the chance to be happy.

Shinji: Dyers Eve - Metallica.

Just listen to it and try not to think that sounds like something he'd feel or say or sing.

"Carry Me Home" - The Living End

This fits Misato a lot if you interpret her alcoholism as being a serious issue (which I do).
"JEEZUS!" - John Zandig

I have a roleplaying blog for an interpretation of Rei in the Pokemon universe. Check it out here.

I should add "Beautiful" is a really good fit for evagellion as a whole, this is literally a sum up of evagellion's story:

"in my shoes, just to see what it's like to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we find
Look at shit through each other's eyes
But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
They can all get fucked, just stay true to you"
Just a big bro looking out for sistah

Eva 01 (especially the rebuild version): Theme of Infinite

(do Evas count as Characters? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ )

Haven't seen the Webuilds, but in NGE they certainly do. Yui-sama, Kyoko-sama... Rei-sama? Yes, 00 is Rei-sama. Oh, and we can't forget Toji's-Mother-sama in 03. ^_^

Kyoko's Melons: Currently being completely rewritten, so... if anyone liked it so far, great. I did too. But... not enough. ;)

This Song reminds me of Shinji

Give The Kid A Break-Alice Cooper

Don't. Know why I'm down here.
Must be something I said. . . I'm sorry.
Or some small imperfection.
In my soul. . . or in my. . . head.
I’ll escape now from this world, from the world of Jean Valjean, Jean Valjean is nothing now! Another story must begin!

This fits Shinji, I guess, but it could apply to the entire cast:

Simon & Garfunkel - I Am a Rock
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKlSVNxLB-A

I build walls
a fortress deep and mighty
that none may penetrate
I have no need of friendship
friendship causes pain
its laughter and its loving I disdain

I am a rock
I am an island

...

I have my books
and my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room,
safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me

Why Bother? - Weezer

Just for a laugh, this one goes out to whoever killed Kaji in episode 21:

Valley of the Damned by Dragonforce, I think it would fit well with Sahaquiel's plummet and Asuka's fight with the MPEs.

My Spirit Will Go On by Dragonforce, I think would fit well with Rei's sacrifice against Armisael.

For some reason I feel this piece suits Shinji well. Or Misato. Or both. Does it?

The White Army

This is your banner, our young friend
You don't have to love its colors
This is your army and life on the run
You won't be alone anymore
At last you can choke with air
And soar like a bird
At last you can walk astray in the city
You were born to serve us

The time has come
This is the time

You're the rudder, the white soldier
You wear trousers, so fight
You're the sail, a mad wind
Your strength's like a jewel

God's with us and His truth
Shall save you like a shield
You were waiting so long for this day
Come along with us, with the fragile dreams
With the trust you still have
In my spirit lies my faith
Stronger than love and with me it will be
For always

- Mike Wyzgowski & Sagisu Shiro
