Interesting choice! Very dense album as well, I have to admit I can only really listen to Revealing Science Of God and Ritual in its entirety, middle two tracks do very little for me. Although one of my headcanons is that Kaworu would find Yes to be a remarkably interesting band and might enjoy Tales.

Genesis' rock opera The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway has quite a few selections that remind me of Evangelion. "it." is my favorite song from the album and the most evocative of the series for me, where the journey of our protagonist Rael comes to an end via the dissolution and deconstruction of his surroundings, as well as himself - not unlike the dissolution of humanity in Third Impact. In fact, many of the songs are vignettes of Rael's surreal, introspective quest ("In the Cage", "The Grand Parade of Lifeless Packaging", "The Chamber of 32 Doors", etc.) that call to mind Shinji's confrontation of his inner demons during Instrumentality.

Oh yeah, and there's a song called "Lilywhite Lilith". You'll never guess who that is. :wink:

EDIT: Seems like I'm not the first one in the thread to make this link! I'm glad jcmoorehead and I share similar tastes in music.

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.

In Flames' "The Jester Script Transfigured":

SPOILER: Show
Cre-age-aeon,
new beginnings held in infinite vacuum
Biotronic test-worlds free of inscription
devoid of the evils of man,
noble cyborg savage

In cold, ceremonial perfection
more radiant than the sum of suns
with each and every attribute
of animal, machine and man

Dystopia, ElectroHeart
the grotesque and the linear
took one final giant blow
into the Ram of
what is us

In cold, ceremonial perfection
more radiant than the sum of suns
with each and every attribute
of animal, machine and man

Installing, awaiting the restoration of unsequenced chaos

We've only seen the outlines of the beginning
and this core, the slowly moving raptor
will make the very notion of Hell
seem celestial in comparison.


Doesn't this strike you as a poetic description of EVA 01?

Nice timing with the bump, I'm listening Princess of China (Acoustic) by Coldplay ft. Rihanna and my inner AsuShin shipper side connected it with my post 3.0 headcanon. :nyao:

SPOILER: Show
Once upon a time somebody ran
Somebody ran away saying 'fast as I can
I got to go, I got to go'
Once upon a time we fell apart
You're holding in your hands the two halves of my heart
Oh oh oh, ohohohoh

Oh ohohohoh, ohohohohoh, ohohohoh, oh

Once upon a time we burned bright
Now all we ever seem to do is fight
On and on, and on and on and on
Once upon a time on the same side
Once upon a time on the same side in the same game
Now why d'you have to go
Have to go and throw water on my flame?
I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring

I could have been a princess, you'd be a king
Could have had a castle and worn a ring
But no o o o oh you let me go o o o oh
You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala, lalalalalalala, lalalalalalala,
You stole my star
La, lalala lalalala

'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, no you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me
'Cos you really hurt me, oh-oh you really hurt me
「希望は残っているよ。どんな時にもね」

I'm gonna say "Fix You" by Coldplay.

While it works for me in a general way it primarily reminds me of Kaworus' relationship with Shinji (not the shippy type relationship but in a more general sense) especially in 3.0.

Fake Plastic Trees - Radiohead
I'd have to say it's pretty much not possible to hear this song and associate it right away with Rei.

[Verse 1]
Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

[Chorus]
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out

[Verse 2]
She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the 80s
But gravity always wins

[Chorus]
And it wears him out
It wears him out
It wears him out
It wears him out

[Verse 3]
She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can't help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

[Chorus]
And it wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out

[Outro]
And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time
All the time

Ezra Weston Loomis Pound wrote:How have I laboured?
How have I not laboured
To bring her soul to birth,
To give these elements a name and a centre!

She is beautiful as the sunlight, and as fluid.
She has no name, and no place.
How have I laboured to bring her soul into separation;
To give her a name and her being!

Surely you are bound and entwined,
You are mingled with the elements unborn;
I have loved a stream and a shadow.

I beseech you enter your life.
I beseech you learn to say "I"
When I question you:
For you are no part, but a whole;
No portion, but a being.
