Pretty much anything by Ill Niño reminds me of Eva and Shinji in particular. Especially the songs "What Comes Around" and "Unreal".

I associate the 4 Non Blondes song "What's up?" (yeah, yeah, the He-Man song.) I always think of Shinji in EoE with Third Impact. My favorite part being the part where he "feels all the torment and pain of humanity all at once" (as GoatJesus described it in his Shinji Ikari Character Analysis video.) I don't know how to exactly describe it. :shrug:


Right at the "HEY YEAH! YEAH!" part of the song, I think of Shinji screaming and all the flashing with everyone from the entire series showing up. It's sort of like how fans (from the old comments section of Evangelion Lover's upload of the song, which has since been deleted and reuploaded due to copyright, meaning the comment isn't there anymore) used to mistake "Komm Süsser Tod" as a "happy" song and how it was meant to contrast all the chaos going on around them...of course if you know the lyrics, you'd know just how dark the song ACTUALLY is. :lol:


But yeah, I sort of have that kind of idea in my mind when I hear that song...that or think of the He-Man meme (I mean who DOESN'T think of that at this point. :guffaw: )

Bit different from the rest of this thread, but for some reason, Korn - Get Up (specifically the chorus) I always associate with Unit 04, specifically the NTE version of it/that one pachinko machine clip where it's fighting the sixth

The movies function on their own terms. If people can't accept them on those terms, and keep expecting them to be NGE, then they probably should have realized a while ago that they weren't going to have a good time. ~ Words of wisdom courtesy of Reichu

I still associate it with their D&R string quartet pieces. Violin Partita no 3 for Asuka, Cello Suite no 1 for Shinji. Rei... hmm, I once saw her playing Chopin's Étude no 3 in a fanfic, so why not. Touji and Kaworu have an association with Pachelbel's Canon and Beethoven's Symphony no 9, but those are also used in a very "general" manner.

If we keep with the classical music motif, what could there be for Misato? Something rowdy but with highs and lows? What about Gendo or Kozo?

This is one of my favourite old pieces of analysis: thread/13017/The-Eva-Pilot-Quartet/
