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.

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?

From Celldweller's album (that is thematically associated with extraterrestrials to boot) we have two songs

"It Makes No Difference Who We Are"

LYRICS  SPOILER: Show
I am still here waiting
I'm anticipating
While they are orchestrating
To grant the wish that I am making

No price to great, no distance too far
If I can wish upon a Blackstar
It makes no difference where they are
They'll grant my wish upon a Blackstar

We are all here waiting
We're anticipating
While they are orchestrating
To grant the wishes we are making

It makes no difference who we are
It makes no difference who we are

No price too great, no distance too far
If we could wish upon a Blackstar
It makes no difference who we are
When we have wished upon a Blackstar
When we have wished upon a Blackstar
They'll grant our wish upon a Blackstar


And then it phases into this one as a direct continuation

"Blackstar"

LYRICS  SPOILER: Show
You must have wished on it
Because I saw them riding in on a Blackstar
They’d rather chew than spit
And they’re full of piss and vinegar

There’s no way to persuade them to give up their crusade
They’ve come to grant the wish you should have never made
Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything

They’ll let you try
To reverse everything
Don’t waste your time
Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything

They move without a sound
And their eyes will paralyze who gaze into
They’ll leave you gagged and bound
To the whip of the wish they’ve granted you

Looks like they’re over it
I saw them riding off on a Blackstar
With nothing left to chew, they split
Because it makes no difference who you are


After reading lyrics to both it uncannily reminds me of Ha into Q.

Or maybe I'm just delusional as seems to be opinion about me here :P

This song is currently probably more associated in terms of popular media today with a kids' movie about a green ogre (Or occasional holiday carols), but listening to the lyrics and with this rendition in particular:

Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah
Rendition by Kate Voegele

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDJgxE-0PZI

SPOILER: Show
Well I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor (you know)
I used to live alone before I knew you
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

There was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do you?
But remember when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x4]

Maybe there's a God above
All I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah [x13]


It seems to fit in quite well with the overall "emotionally drained" vibe that tends to linger in the immediate aftermath of Third Impact.

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.

A song that fit Shinji and Rei

It's been awhile...

While listening to this song here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5heBwvVbfI) and reading the lyrics, Shinji and Rei popped into my mind as I think the lyrics fit them well. It pretty much describes them during NGE series events given their motives and mindset while piloting the units. There are parts which describes more Rei than Shinji given her standard attitude towards piloting the Eva.

P.S.: Yes, I'm a metalhead.

P.S.(2): I don't know/remember if there's a topic discussing main themes for the characters.
I've got nothing better to do, so I have registered myself here!
