Simple topic. If you listen to a certain song and at the same time, compare it with one of the Eva characters for their personality, what would be your choice of songs for that character?

Here are mine:

Shinji

Pearl Jam - Jeremy

Fear Factory - Timelessness

Asuka

Slipknot - Before I Forget

Machinehead - Imperium

Rei

Tool - Parabol/Parabola

System Of A Down - Spiders

Misato

Metallica - Turn The Page

Rei- Mutter by Rammstein
Tell me, is something eluding you, sunshine?
Is this not what you expected to see?
If you wanna find out what's behind these cold eyes
You'll just have to claw your way through this disguise!

If so...

Asuka:

Pink Floyd - Careful with that axe, Eugene.

You know, the axe she's climbing at in ep. 16... <chuckles>

Ok, that one wasn't so very good...

What about...

Shinji: Opeth - To Bid You Farewell

I am awaiting the sunrise
Gazing modestly through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over autumn's proud treetops

I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again

Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: "I know..."

We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?

Why can't you see that I try
When every tear I shed
Is for you?

Really? For Rei? I thought it would have suited for Asuka for her relationship with her mother. But that's just me.

Just remembered one perfect song for Shinji, kind of...

Black Sabbath - Solitude

My name it means nothing
My fortune is less
My future is shrouded in dark wilderness
Sunshine is far away, clouds linger on
Everything I possessed - now they are gone

O, where can I go to and what can I do?
Nothing can please me only thoughts are of you
You just laughted when I begged you to stay
I've not stopped crying since you went away

The world is a lonely place - you're on your own
Guess I will go home - sit down and moan
Crying and thinking is all that I do
Memories I have remind me of you
"Meglio soli che mal accompagnati."

Shinji:

Breaking the Hbit- Linkin park.

Actually, just about any whiny Linkin song would fit him.

Come to think about it, pretty much any whiny emo song fits him, too...
2:34 And behold, We said to the angels: "Bow down to Adam" and they bowed down. Not so Iblis: he refused and was haughty: He was of those who reject Faith.

Giant robots with angels trapped inside of them,
Teenaged pilots & an evil organization,
Doing battle with giant monsters from beyond,
Mankind's last hope lies in the Evangelions

There was no breast that cried milk
There is a tube that sticks in my throat
I have no navel on my stomach

I was not allowed to lick any nipples
and there was no fold to hide in
no one gave me a name
fathered in haste and without sperm
I have sworn tonight
For the mother that never gave birth to me
I will send her a sickness

Mother
An eel lives in her lungs
on my forehead, a birthmark
remove it with the kiss of a knife
even if it causes me to die

It would be just lovey-dovey if you posted the lyrics too, or atleast the part you think relate the character to it. :)

Blink 182 - Adam's Song


I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
I trace the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

[Chorus]
I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never step foot in my room again
You'll close it off, board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault

[Chorus]

I never conquered, rarely came
But tomorrow holds such better days
Days when I can still feel alive
When I can't wait to get outside
The world is wide, the time goes by
The tour is over, I've survived
I can't wait till I get home
To pass the time in my room alone

Trowa_Ayanami wrote:Coldplay - Trouble


Oh no, I see,
A spider web is tangled up with me,
And I lost my head,
The thought of all the stupid things I said,
Oh no what’s this?
A spider web, and I’m caught in the middle,
So I turned to run,
The thought of all the stupid things I’ve done,

I never meant to cause you trouble,
And I never meant to do you wrong,
And i, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

Oh no I see,
A spider web and it’s me in the middle,
So I twist and turn,
Here I am in my little bubble,

Singing, I never meant to cause you trouble,
I never meant to do you wrong,
And i, well if I ever caused you trouble,
Oh no, I never meant to do you harm.

They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me,
They spun a web for me.

Mother please forgive me
I just had to get out all my pain and suffering
Now that I am done, remember I will always love you
I'm your son

Little child, looking so pretty
Come out and play, I'll be your daddy
Innocent child, looking so sweet
A rape in my eyes and on your flesh I'll eat

You've raped!
I feel dirty
It hurt!
As a child
Tied down!
That's a good boy
And fucked!
Your own child
I scream!
No one hears me
It hurt!
I'm not a liar
My God!
Saw you watching
Mommy why?!
Your own child

It's alright

I didn't touch you there
Mama said she didn't care
I didn't touch you there
That's why mama stopped and stared

I fucking hate you! Mother fucker!
Mother Fucker! I fucking hate you! Fuck You!
You son of a bitch, you fucking ruined my life!
I wanted to die!
I'm sick of it, mother fucker . . . oh oh
Why'd you fuck'n do it to me?

Taking shape, taking shag

You got all my love, livin' in your own hate
Drippin' hole man, hard step, no fate
Show you nuthin', but I ain't holdin' back
Every damn word I say is a sneak attack

Ain't a fuck thing you can do
Get this cuz you're never gonna get me

I am the push that makes you move

Slipknot - Vermillion pt 1 & 2


She seems dressed in all the rings... of past fatalities
So fragile, yet so devious - she continues to see
climatic hands that press her temples and my chest
Enter the night that she came home - forever

Oh... She's the only one that makes me sad

She is everything and more, the solemn hypnotic
My dahlia, bathed in possesion - she is home to me
I get nervous, perverse, when I see her, it's worse
But the stress is astounding
It's now or never, she's coming home - forever

Oh... She's the only one that makes me sad

Hard to say what caught my attention
Fixed and crazy - aphid attraction
Carve my name in my face - to recognize
Such a pheromone cult to terrorize

I won't let this build up inside of me...

I'm a slave and I am a master
No restraints and unchecked collectors
I exist to my need - to self-oblige
She is something in me - that I despise

I won't let this build up inside of me...

She isn't real - I can't make her real

Pt 2

She seemed dressed in all of me
Stretched across my shame
All the torment and the pain
Leaked through and covered me
I'd do anything to have her to myself
Just to have her for myself
Now I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad

She is everything to me
The unrequited dream
A song that no one sings
The unattainable
She's a myth that I have to believe in
All I need to make it real is one more reason

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
When she makes me sad

But I won't let this build up inside of me

I catch in my throat
Choke
Torn into pieces
I won't - no
I don't wanna be this

But I won't let this build up inside of me

She isn't real
I can't make her real

A pill to make you numb
A pill to make you dumb
A pill to make you anybody else

Her mouth was an empty cut
And she was waiting to fall
Just bleeding like a polaroid that
Lost all her dolls

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

"Chop Suey!" by SOAD for Shinji, "Forest" by SOAD for the EVAs and Children.

Shinji and Asuka - "Rapid Hope Loss" by Dashboard Confessional

(Rapid Hope Loss lyrics)

"You called to say you wanted out
Well, I can't say I blame you now
Sometimes you've got to fold
before you're found out
Well thanks for waiting this long
to show yourself

Cause now that I can see you
I don't think you're worth a second glance"

...(and so on. I guess it could work better for Kaji and Misato..)

Can't think of anymore. ):

Asuka and Shinji - "Easier to Run" by Linkin Park

The first verse practically smells Asuka, while the second is very Shinji-esque. Too bad that AMV makers tend to overlook this song in favor of In the End and Numb... Ever heard of Linkin Park-n00bs, anyone?


It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to run
Than face all this pain here all alone

Something has been taken from deep inside of me
A secret I've locked away no one can ever see
Wounds so deep they never show they never go away
Like moving pictures in my head for years and years they've played

(If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I've made I would
If I could, stand up and take the blame I would,
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I've made I would
If I could, stand up and take the blame I would,
I would take all the shame to the grave)

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to run
Than face all this pain here all alone

Sometimes I remember the darkness of my past
Bringing back these memories I wish I didn’t have
Sometimes I think of letting go and never looking back
And never moving forward so there’d never be a past

(If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I've made I would
If I could, stand up and take the blame I would,
If I could take all the shame to the grave I would
If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
Retrace every wrong move that I've made I would
If I could, stand up and take the blame I would,
I would take all the shame to the grave)

Just washing it aside
All of the helplessness inside
Pretending I don't feel misplaced
It's so much simpler than change

It's easier to run
Replacing this pain with something numb
It's so much easier to go
Than face all this pain here all alone

It's easier to run

(If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
retrace every wrong move that I've made)

It's easier to go

(If I could change I would, take back the pain I would
retrace every wrong move that I've made I would
If I could stand up and take the blame I would
I would take all the shame
To the grave)
Asuka > Rei
