What songs would you best suit to an Eva character?

This is a forum for casual discussion of Evangelion. Topics like "Asuka is hot!" or "Which Eva kicks the most ass?" belong here.

Maybe the vocalist saw NGE and then got so depressed he started to write music? :lol:

I'm not too much of an AMV fan anyway, I only like the Rammstein - Engel one... :) (Focus on Asuka and one of Rammstein's best songs!)

Chiefen is obsessed with Spiehlur though, can't understand him...

I like the video/music sync and the dramatic music. I especially like part of the song where "GNR" rises. The whole AMV gives a good feeling of EoE.

I could care less about those two... What we need are a copule of good Asuka AMV's with Sonne, and some A/S with Morgenstern and Ohne Dich. I'm working on a Sonne video, but it's still in the earlier stages of planning (due to the fact that I need actual footage and a better computer before I can start to work on it).

Oh, is Asuka so sunshine like ? ;) But the Engel one is really, really well done - in my opinion, and it's a classic, first contact with NGE for my account back in 2000 or whenever the AMV was new!

Actually, there are several reasons why I want to make a video with that song, in no particular order:

- It's a Rammstein song. It's a video about Asuka. Go figure.

- It's my favorite Rammstein song. Well, at least one of them.

- "Die Sonne" could describe Asuka.

- Sie ist der hellste Stern von allen, und will nie vom Himmel fallen (She is the brightest star of them all, and will never fall from heaven) - This part of the song could be used in two ways:
A) You could use footage from EoE, where Asuka kicks some sorry Harpy ass - She is the brightest, and she won't fall! or B) You could drop an irony bomb and show footage from her attempted suicide. A could work for most, I guess, but I'm leaning strongly towards B... :twisted:

- Die Sonne scheint mir aus den Händen
kann verbrennen, kann dich blenden
wenn sie aus den Fäusten bricht
legt sich heiß auf dein Gesicht
legt sich schmerzend auf die Brust
das Gleichgewicht wird zum Verlust
lässt dich hart zu Boden gehen
und die Welt zählt laut bis zehn


This part of the lyrics that describes die Sonne could also be to describe Arael's beam of light, with really lays down on her with pain and let her "fall hard to the ground." And yes, it burns.

- You know how they count to 9 and says "aus" (out) at ten? Asuka fights 9 angels (well, she doesn't really fight them all, but she's at least on the scene), but when she is trying to fight her tenth, Armisael, her Eva won't even move - she's "out."

C'mon, Sventevith. You know you want it. :twisted:

Ryo wrote: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?


Well actually, In the End came out before Easier to Run, making them sorta...anti-Linkin Park n00bs, but you're right. Easier to Run would make an awesome Eva AMV. :lol:

-thinks on this- Hummm...
Now I really don't know which song to use. I'm planning on making an Eva AMV to enter at the next anime convention I go to. I've never submitted one before. Blah.

Due to the importance of the "kiss scene", the only possible choice for a Shinji/Asuka theme is This Magic Moment. (Originally a hit for The Drifters, Jay and the Americans also had a hit with it.)

This magic moment
So different and so new
Was like any other
Until I kissed you.
And then it happened;
It took me by suprise.
I knew that you felt it too
By the look in your eyes.

Sweeter than wine
Softer than a summer night
Everything I want I have
Whenever I hold you tight.

This magic moment
While your lips are close to mine
Will last forever
Forever till the end of time.
Rejoice, glory is ours. Our young men have not died in vain. Their graves need no flowers. The tapes have recorded their names.
I am all there is.
Negative! Primative! Limited! I let you live.
But I gave you life.
What else could you do?
To do what was right.
I'm perfect, are you?

Assuming an orthodox (S/A) interpretation, either Love The One You're With or You're not the one (I was looking for) would be as, if not more, appropriate, given some of the other entanglements, and the anti-stereotypical effect of that kiss.

Oh yeah, someday I really want to make an Asuka/Shinji AMV set to Silverchair's "Black tangled Heart."

Maybe your luck has changed
Settle down
Maybe I'm just deranged
And on the rebound
Maybe love was the thing
Holding me back from all
Maybe I'm just the thing
To break my own fall

Take the rope to my heart and fall
You may just be the last before you
See the black tangled heart fall

Maybe departure's good,
Makes room for more
Start to massproduce,
For a chance to ignore
Maybe you'll kill yourself,
Before I get a turn
Maybe I'll fall in love,
And never learn

Take the rope to my heart and fall
You may just be the last before you
See the black tangled heart fall

Take the rope to my heart and fall
You may just be the last before you
See the black tangled heart fall
Asuka > Rei

For Rei I'm torn between two pieces...

Armstrong: Weather Storm
Saite: Gymnopedie No.1

They both have a nice tone and resonance that fits with Rei's character I feel...

Others that could fit with Shinji

Manic Street Preachers: A song for departure (lyrically its good ; )

Anything from The Holy Bible ablum will fit most of the characters (because its so chaotic)

there ya go

Dude...that is the coolest thing I've heard all week. You need to make those AMVs. And your description of the Sonne video drool. Wish I could help you but I know nothing about making AMVs.

Anyway, 'Breaking the Habit' has always reminded me of Misato, whenever I hear the line "And now I have some clarity, to show you what I mean" I think of Misato taking that bullet for Shinji. And 'Keine Lust' reminds me of Shinji:

I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it

I don't feel like not hating myself
Don't feel like touching myself
I would feel like masturbating
Don't feel like trying it
I would feel like getting undressed
Don't feel like seeing myself naked

I would feel like it with big animals
Don't feel like risking it
Don't feel like going from the snow
Don't feel like freezing

I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
I don't feel like it
No I don't feel like it

I don't feel like chewing anything
because I don't feel like digesting it
Don't feel like weighing myself
Don't feel like lying in fat

I would feel like it with big animals
Don't feel like risking it
Don't feel like going from the snow
Don't feel like freezing
I'll just keep lying here
and I'll count the flies again
I listlessly touch myself
and notice I've been frigid for a long time already [1]
So frigid, I'm cold . . .

I don't feel like it


('Easier to Run'? How can you post that one and not mention 'Faint'! It sounds like it was written by Asuka and Shinji.)
"Dying is not romantic, and death is not a game which will soon be over...Death is not anything...Death is not...It's the absence of presence , nothing more...The endless time of never coming back...a gap you can't see, and when the wind blows through it, it makes no sound..."
- Guildenstern
