I've always said that this would be a good song to use in an NGE AMV, if done properly. So many lines just synch up so well if you read into it a little.

It has to use the last scene of EoE, though, when it comes to those last few repeated lines ("Touch her eyes / Press my stained face / I will never be clean again").

I think this song might work if someone wanted to do a somewhat humorous Shinji & Asuka AMV. Some of the lyrics work almost too well (especially if you like the ADV dub).

Black Sabbaths "God Is Dead?" would be great for an Evangelion AMV. The song is about a man going through an existential crisis of faith after suffering a horrible tragedy. Its not a condemnation of God, its about attempting to keep one worldview and positivity (and failing) in a world gone so horrendously wrong.

Now if that AMV is set in the Rebuild, the question would be : does the song talk about Gendo, or Shinji? :chinscratch:

it could be Both I suppose. But I was thinking it would primarily focus on Shinji. Maybe once 4.0 comes out there will be enough footage of Gendo to have an Amv with "God Is Dead?" with Gendo as the central character.

I was thinking it could be a mix, scenes from the rebuild and the original series mixed together for ultimate psychological emphasis.

These lyrics would go good with the Instrumentality scene.

Nowhere to run
Nowhere to hide
Wondering if we will meet again
On the other side
Do you believe a word
What the good book said?
Or is it just a holy fairytale
And God is dead?

I can't believe nobody's suggested Mother by Pink Floyd. Imagine the possibilities.

Also, it gives an excuse for Yui hawtness and mini-Shinji adorability.

Muse is the official soundtrack for apocalyptic moments (in my humble opinion). I've always imagined an AMV with Map of the Problematique or Survival (this song is SO Asuka).

There already exists a Evangelion AMV set to Mother, in fact it is one of my favorites.

[url]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2RuSgObZB0[/url]

It could always be approved upon though, maybe use Rebuild footage?

I personally would to love see someone sync up EoE with the entire Wall album, like they did with The Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of The Moon. Maybe not the entire film cause I think The Wall album is longer than EoE.

Here's some other idea's that I think were cool:

Beautiful Loser by Bob Seger focusing on Shinji.

Baba O'Riley by The Who focusing on the Children in general, maybe young Misato too.

Behind Blue Eyes by The Who focusing on Shinji.

Save Yourself by Stabbing Westward perhaps focusing on either the Asuka/Shinji relationship or Shinji's inability to save those he cares about, maybe both?

Stuck in The Middle with You by the Stealers Wheel focusing on Shinji and his interaction with the supporting cast.

Don't Fear the Reaper By Blue Oyster Cult focusing on Shinji causing multiple Impacts.

Epic by Faith No More focusing on Shinji in 3.0 and maybe the last few scenes of 2.0.

I Wanna Rock by Twisted Sister focusing on Asuka kicking butt throughout both the T.V series and series of movies.

That's all I can think of right now. I'll probably think of more later.

That's a good idea, very fitting in either case. Few lines fit him much better than "But I am not your savior / I am just as fucked as you".

Looks like I wasn't the only one who mixed those two together...

If we're thinking something by FNM that would fit Shinji, I'd instead suggest "Falling to Pieces".

I like amvs with dark themes, but I also like to see some that are at least modestly upbeat.

D3ad mau5 and Gerard Ways "Professional Griefers". It's been out for a while now, but I have yet to see a decent Amv featuring it. The lyrics could work very well for a Rebuild Of Eva AMV.

Thanks man :D

Those were the exact lyrics I was thinking of bro.

Your signature actually inspired the idea -o-;

Never heard that song before

EDIT: Just listened to it, it sounds like a good choice.


I just thought of some more.

Cumbersome by Seven Mary Three Focusing on a collapse of a potential relationship between Asuka and Shinji

Selling The Drama or I Alone by Live focusing once more on the Shinji/Asuka relationship.

Bad Dream by Keane focusing on Shinji during EoTV episode 25 and 26, EoE and 3.0.

Immigrant Song either Trent Reznor or Zeppelin version focusing on Asuka obviously.

Someone needs to make PROPER videos using Story of the Year's "Until the Day I Die" and Three Days Grace's "I Hate Everything About You". There are about 4 of the former and dozens of the latter on Youtube but they all suck ass.

Godsmack's "I Stand Alone" and Breaking Benjamin's "I Will Not Bow" as Asuka tributes, because fuck yeah.

Within Temptation, "Angels", Rei/Kaworu tribute.

Britney Spears, "Stronger", Rei tribute.

Rei/Gendo tributes can be done to "You'll See", "Live to Tell", and "The Power of Goodbye", all by Madonna, and Fefe Dobson's "Unforgiven". There are a lot of female musicians with serious daddy issues, why is this kind of video not more common?

Speaking of Madonna, "Swim" is so full of Instrumentality/3I references it's not even funny. Hell, Madonna should just do the soundtrack for LAEM.



...



Yes, I listen to both metal and Britney Spears. Stop looking at me like that.
Bob Dole doesn't have to take this kind of crap! Bob Dole is a cyborg!

Here's a strange idea an amv set to Night Of The Long Knives by AC/DC

Lyrics

Who your leader who your man Who will help you fill your hand Who's your friend and who's your foe Who's your Judas you don't know Night of the long knives Night of the long knives Night of the long knives Night of the long long knife

Where's that saviour Where's that light When your prayin' for your life Who's that fightin' back to back Who's defending who's attack Night of the long knives Night of the long knives Night of the long knives Night of the long Long knife

Stab him in the back

It's the night of the long knives Night of the long knives Night of the long knives It's the night of the long long knife

It's the night of the Night of the Night of the long long knives

Up till the line Stab him in the back it seems to work if you ask me .

New Year's Day and Sunday, Bloody Sunday. Oldies are goldies.

Personally, I'd like to see an Asuka-centric AMV using Brackish by Kittie.
Though, Gob still might look good in a cocktail dress.

Rei wanted to know what waffles tasted like.

We have to remember what's important in life: friends, waffles, and work. Or waffles, friends, and work. But work has to come in third.

I want to try something with Ordinary Love.

Personal Jesus by Depeche Mode focusing on the Kaworu and Shinji relationship. An alternative could be Shinji just trying to reach out to anyone or heck even Asuka trying to reach out to Shinji if you are creative enough.
