I thought I'd expand the subject after I saw it in the "You know you're obsessed when..." thread.

This does NOT include the Eva OST.

My first pick: Metal Gods by Judas Priest

"We've taken too much for granted
And all the time it had grown
From techno seeds we first planted
Evolved a mind of its own"

John Lennon - Mother

Mother, you had me, but I never had you
I wanted you, you didn't want me
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Father, you left me, but I never left you
I needed you, you didn't need me
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Children, don't do what I have done
I couldn't walk and I tried to run
So I, I just got to tell you
Goodbye, goodbye

Mama don't go
Daddy come home

ran1: Oh gosh this sentence gave me an internet boner. You're so tsundere.
Mugwump: Goddamn it, Xard! Take me in your arms, you magnificent sex god bastard!
And don't forget to wear the Ran mask.
Eva Yojimbo: You really are the Otaku equivalent of a Catholic and Jew rolled up into one giant dakimakura of guilt.
Gob Hobblin: Sanctimonious, subtly racist, vaguely misogynist, somehow says something while at the same time saying...nothing, really, at all....

Nice, Xard. That's nice.

Fear Factory - Martyr

no...seriously (Lyric-wise)


EDIT: Why not, here's the lyrics


What I thought was life
Came to an end
Born into a world
I never asked for this
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Born into hardship
World of destruction
Suffer, bastard
Suffer, bastard
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Take me to heaven
Adorn me with wings
Suffer, bastard
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away!

Suffer, bastard...

[Repeat 1st verse, 2nd verse]

I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away
I've got to get away

"Stones From the Sky", by Neurosis. The lyrics are so close to EoE that it makes me wonder if the correlation is intentional.

Once is enough, trial is alone. Grace fall into us.
All through the night, Father, I crawled.
Sun of my soul be revealed. Walking amongst the stones
from the sky, feeling their rhythm wash over me.

Rite of this waring god. Destructive, alive, frees you now.
Rivers of fear, don't you know? Vigil of faith stills you now.
You've been shown over and over, don't you know?
You've been shown over and over, don't you know?

I can't say that a song has; but some of the music on GY!BE's Yanqui UXO did -- some of the passages provoked recollections of ep 25' (as if it were BGM).

"There is a Light that Never Goes Out" by the Smiths

Specifically, the line "To die by your side is such a heavenly way to die" reminds me of Makoto's confession that he doesn't mind dying if Misato is by his side during episode 24.

"Woke from dreaming" by The Delgados

These lines:

Woke from dreaming but it took convincing
I was shaking screaming I was still alive

remind of Asuka waking up from coma on EoE

and:

My heart is getting heavy and my hands are weak now
Hatred lifting and I’ll start to weep now


remind me of Shinji strangling Asuka
Asuka's not a bitch, she just denies her innocence in a bitchy way.

That thread forever ago where I compared Jesus Jones "Doubt" to Eva? I wasn't really joking... not entirely, anyway. Tell me you honestly don't get some EVA vibes from these:

I'm Burning wrote:So, when I cried where were you?
And you know I cried 'cause I saw you.
Sometimes I think you don't know what you say.

I'm insecure, so insecure.
You don't mind?
Don't be so sure...
One day I might just stop and turn away

(...)

Under the skin I bruise easily.
You say I'm soft?
That's a maybe,
But you'll never know until you...
push it too far.


Nothing To Hold Me wrote:I changed my name and you changed your mind
The only thing you left was me,
Behind, to try and talk so bitter you make me feel so small.
Driving so fast, alive behind a dead wall.
Is it all so much art that keeps us apart?
The fine line goes, contradictions start
A case of the face in the place that doesn't fit
Which way to turn... why don't you just stop it?

(...)

I always leave, never stay
Making promises for someday
Someday hasn't yet come and you know
You're not the only one to wonder
When we'll ever meet again, again, again...


Real, Real, Real wrote:I think I know what you mean,
And although it sounds obscene
I will always do my best to understand.
You have so many words
And your voice is always heard,
But who can say they really understand?

(...)

Say what you like,
you know that no-one really minds.
And if there's nothing to say,
Why don't we all go away?

I did this mostly because I like this song. What's Oasis?

Oasis's Shock of the Lightning

represents Kaworu onscreen during EoTV.

SPOILER: Show
I'm all over my heart's desire,
I feel cold but I'm back in the fire,
Out of control but I'm tied up tight,
Come in, come out tonight.

I'm comin' up in the early morning,
I feel love in the shock of the lightning,
I fall into the blinding light,
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight.

Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
It's all in my mind,
Love is a litany,
A magical mystery,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.

I got my feet on the street but I can't stop flyin',
My head's in the clouds but at least I'm tryin',
I'm out of control but I'm tied up tight,
Come in, come out tonight.

There's a hole in the ground into which I'm fallin',
So God speaks to the sound of the poundin',
I'm all into the blinding light,
Come in, come out, come in, come out tonight..

Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
It's all in my mind,
Love is a litany,
A magical mystery,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.

It's all in my mind,
Love is a time machine,
Up on the silver screen,
And all in good time, and all in good time,
And all in good time.
Rei: I'm not your puppet.

Brand New - Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ, that's a pretty face
The kind you'd find on someone that could save
If they don't put me away
It’ll be a miracle

Do you believe you're missing out?
That everything good is happening somewhere else
But, with nobody in your bed
The nights hard to get through

And I... will die... all alone
And when I... arrive... I won’t know anyone

Well, Jesus Christ, I’m alone again
So what did you do those three days you were dead?
'Cause this problems gonna last
More than the weekend

Well, Jesus Christ I’m not scared to die
But I’m a little bit scared of what comes after
Do I get the gold chariot,
Do I float through the ceiling?

Do I... divide... and pull apart
'Cause my bright... is too slight... to hold back all my dark
And this ship... went down... in sight of land
And at the gates... does Thomas... ask to see my hands?

I know you're coming in the night like a thief
But I’ve had some time, O Lord, to hone my lying technique
I know you think that I’m someone you can trust
But I’m scared I’ll get scared and I swear I’ll try to nail you back up
So do you think that we could work out a sign
So I’ll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try
I know you're coming for the people like me
But we all got wood and nails
And we turn-turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
We turn-turn out hate in factories
We all got wood and nails
And we sleep inside of this machine

Honestly, anything off The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me reminds me of Evangelion.

Another band that reminds me of Eva quite a bit: Stabbing Westward.

Instrumentality and the Rei-tachi wrote:You Complete Me

I am lost in the darkness
between two worlds and here
I'm struggling....
You're the light I've been seeking
cause my whole life there's been something missing....

Only you
Can make me whole
Just one touch and
You complete me

Rescue me from this black hole
That's sucked me in and left me dying
you're the truth that I've been seeking
Cause my whole life I've been lying....

Only you
Can make me whole
Just one touch and
You complete me

God I pray you find me worthy
of the right to stand beside you
And of your truth and of your passion
And of the right to sleep beside you....

Only you
Can make me whole
Just one touch and
You complete me


Shinji/Asuka relationship? wrote:What Do I Have To Do?

You make it hard to breathe
It's as if I'm suffocating
And when you're next to me
I can feel your heartbeat through my skin
It makes me sad to think
This could all be for nothing
I wish there was a way
A way for you to see inside me
I've never felt this way
About anyone or anything … tell me

What do I have to do to make you happy?
What do I have to do to make you understand?
What do I have to do to make you want me?
But, if I can't make you want me
What do I have to do?

I know exactly what you're thinking
But I swear this time I will not let you down
I'm not as selfish as I used to be
That was a part of me that never made me proud
Right now I think I would try anything
Anything at all to keep you satisfied
God I hope you see what losing you would do to me
All I want is one more chance… tell me

What do I have to do to make you happy?
What do I have to do to make you understand?
What do I have to do to make you want me?
But, if I can't make you want me
Just tell me, tell me.

Can I, how can I, how can we?

What do I have to do to make you want me?
What do I have to do to make you understand?
What do I have to do to make you love me?
But, if I can't make you love me
Just tell me what do I have to do?

To forget about you...


The Akagi Women's lament wrote:I Don't Believe

I'm such an asshole
I'm such a stain
I just keep fucking up again and again
You crawled inside my mind when you crawled into my bed
Said everything I've ever longed to hear
So perfect, so alive, once inside you sucked me dry
Used me up and left me here for dead
I crave it desperately, it's a cancer eating me
An addiction too intense to be denied
Worthless, I'm a whore, crawling back for more
Pathetic how I feed off this abuse
You told me that you loved me
You swore that you loved me
And I believed, now I know it was a lie

[chorus]
I don't believe
I don't believe
That I could be so stupid and so naive
I don't believe
I don't believe
That there is nothing, nothing left for me


Asuka's reply wrote:Save yourself

I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you're searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole
I can not save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

I know that you've been damaged
Your soul has suffered such abuse
But I am not your savior
I am just as fucked as you
I am just as fucked as you
I can not save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me

My life has been a nightmare
My soul is fractured to the bone
And if I must be lonely, I think I'd rather be alone
I think I'd rather be alone

You can not save me
You can't even save yourself
I can not save you
I can't even save myself
Save yourself
So just save yourself


Misato/Kaji wrote:Sometimes It Hurts

Six o'clock in the morning
My head is ready to explode
I can't believe I made it home alive
I don't remember where I went
Or what I was drinking
And now it's made me sick
And I'm not denying
That I get this way
When I try to get over you
I get this way
When I try to get over you
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love

I tried so hard to hate you
But it only makes it all worse
I only end up hating myself
And as my hatred grows
So do the lies
It's hard to face the truth sometimes
God I feel so useless
God I hate myself
When I try to get over you
I hate myself
Will I ever get over you

Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love

And after all this time you'd think I'd understand the way you feel
But no
I only think about myself
And it's driving you away
I always knew it would one day

Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love
Sometimes it hurts
So much to lose the one you love


Why it sucks to be Gendo wrote:Waking Up Beside You

I've been so alone for so long
Forgotten by the world
Forgotten to myself
Your effervescent eyes have awakened me
And brushed the dust away
But I knew you'd never stay

So I memorized the color of your eyes as I lost myself inside you
And I memorized the way our legs entwined as I drifted off beside you

I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you

At night I cling to you, I'm so afraid
Afraid the day will come
And I'll wake and find you gone
But you promised that you'd not abandon me
And kissed my fears away
But I woke up to that day

But I had memorized the way our eyes
would meet reflected in the bathroom mirror
And I memorized your naked silhouette as you slowly brushed your hair
I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you

I've been so alone for so long
I forgot how much it hurts
To wake up so alone

But I memorized how warm your body felt
as you lay half asleep beside me
And I memorized the way the sunlight
filled the room and played upon your body

I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you
I miss
God I miss
Waking up beside you


I am Rei... but who am I? wrote:Shame

I only see myself reflected in your eyes
So all that I believe I am essentially are lies
And everything I've hoped to be or ever thought I was
Died with your belief in me so who the hell am I?

I don't know if I'm real without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know whats real without you
How can I exist without you?

I'm wondering 'round confused
Wondering why I try
The more that you deny my pain
The more it intensifies...
I pray for someone to ache for me the way I ache for you...
If you ignore that I'm alive
I've nothing to cling to

I don't know if I'm real without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know whats real without you
How can I exist without you?

I stare into this mirror
So tired of this life
If only you would speak to me or care if I'm alive
Once I swore I would die for you
But I never meant it like this
I never meant like this
no I never meant like this

I don't know if I'm real without you
What is left of me without you?
I don't know whats real without you
How can I exist without you?

"Well, I wonder" By The Smiths

SPOILER: Show
Well I wonder
Do you hear me when you sleep ?
I hoarsely cry
Oh ...

Well I wonder
Do you see me when we pass ?
I half die ...
Oh ...

Please keep me in mind
Please keep me in mind

Gasping - but somehow still alive
This is the fierce last stand of all I am

Gasping - dying - but somehow still alive
This is the final stand of all I am

Please keep me in mind

Well I wonder
Well I wonder
Please keep me in mind
Keep me in mind
Keep me in mind

it's really obvious for me

this song should have been a theme (ending?) for EoE:

and there's a lot from this group pre-2006 that fits well despite the AMV haters
