just throwing my 2 cents in.

Misato - Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake
Ritsuko - Blinded me with science by Thomas Dolby
Shinji - All by Myself by Eric Carmen
Asuka - O Fortuna from the Carmina Burana
Kaji - What if we could? by Blue October
Gendo - (thinking of Yui) KIri by Monoral

had the most difficult time with Rei but if nothing else the dead pan delivery sells it
Rei - Never say Never by Romeo Void

How about the Music from HEALTH? Has some good songs that fit to Eva too like TEARS, LIFE, DARK ENOUGH and FLESH WORLD (UK).

And also the music in the David Lynch films and serieses like Inland Empire, Wild at Heart and of course Twin Peaks.

So I've long thought that NIN's 'Gave up' fits the OG series well enough, but I've just been smacked with the realization that it's even more perfect for Q.

perfect little dream the kind that hurts the most
forgot how it feels well almost
no one to blame always the same
open my eyes wake up, wake up, wake up in flames

it took you to make me realize
it took you to make me realize
it took you to make me realize
it took you to make me see the light

smashed up my sanity
smashed up my integrity
smashed up what i believed in
smashed up what's left of me
smashed up my everything
smashed up all that was true
gonna smash myself to pieces
i don't know what else to do

covered in hope and vaseline
still cannot fix this broken machine
watching the hole it used to be mine
just watching it burn in my steady systematic decline
of the trust i will betray
give it to me i throw it away
after everything i've done i hate myself for what i've become

i tried
i gave up

throw it away
Alas poor Kaworu, I knew him well...

@Kendrix

I‘m also for NIN fitting to Eva.

Something I can never have, Hurt and All that could’ve been too.

Well, I've always associated Evangelion to House Music. You know, it just fits with the "late 90's"/"futuristic" vibe of the series.

Commercial Break #5 (2:46 - 6:16), for example, always reminds me of Shinji and Asuka's relationship.

Rollin' and Scratchin' feels a bit uncomfortable, while also being amazing (I love how it depicts raw movements through sound). It makes me think about the Evangelions themselves.

Don't Know Malendro doesn't make me think about any specific elements of the series. However, it does have a segment which sounds inexplicably similar to Thanatos - If I Can't Be Yours (2:15)

Just sit here and waste your precious time. When you want to do something, don't do it right away. Don't do it when you can. Read my posts instead. It's the only way to live a life without regrets.

This is a definite Gendo song:


I've been waiting for you to get your mind right
Pour yourself into my skin until I can't see
I've been waiting for you to get your mind right

You've been running from yourself for a while
Waiting for the whole thing to catch fire
You think that if you burn down you'll be fine
And maybe I'd forget all the times you lied


(His general cynism/ rejection of the world & how he expects instrumentality to fix everything & justify all the burned bridges along the way)

I'm sick of awaiting your vacancy
I hope that you choke on your vacant teeth
No space in your broken veins left for me
I know that you're empty, I know that you're empty


(His general emotional absence, and how Ritsuko, Rei & Shinji all kinda know they're kidding themselves about him;
He's pretty much dead inside & given up on the present world so he has "no space left" for Ritsuko, Shinji or even Rei rly.)


You don't even look the same with your brand new eyes
And you drained the light out of yourself and now you can't see
I've been waiting for you to get your mind right


(The general change in demeanor after Yui's death, how he became colder &more & more obsessed with his work, more & more inhuman topped off with turning himself into something outright inhuman with the adam embryo, all while some ppl were holding the futile hope of connecting with him long beyond what he would've strictly deserved)


You've been running from yourself for a while
Waiting for the whole thing to catch fire
You think that if you burn down you'll be fine
And maybe I'd forget all the times you lied

I'm sick of awaiting your vacancy
I hope that you choke on your vacant teeth
No space in your broken veins left for me
I know that you're empty, I know that you're empty



pOV wise it could really be anyone out of Shinji, Rei or Ritsuko though the more romantically tinged bits in the first verse would ovsly be the latter.

stuck in traffic for an extra 45 mins today and some of the deeper cuts popped up on the pod that I haven't listened to in a while....don't know why but
the Gendo/Yui thing was in mind (who knows why? I loathe Gendo and Yui seems still like a stranger to me. Just because she accidentally donated material
for clones doesn't follow of course that Rei bears any character traits in common with her. (Of course there are theories of genetic pre-disposition but I digress and I'm babbling so anyway)

an old fave popped up "Possession" by Sarah McLachlan (from the '93 Fumbling Towards Ecstasy) it has the right mix of romantically creepy stalkerishnis
to be running through mind of Gendo.


SPOILER: Show
Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time
The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

Through this world I've stumbled
So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word
To find the truth enslaved
Oh you speak to me in riddles and
You speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath
Your words keep me alive

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes, dear

Into this night I wander
It's morning that I dread
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread
Oh, into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride
Nothing stands between us here
And I won't be denied

And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd, wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

I'll hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I'll take your breath away
And after I'd wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes

Surrender to Failure by Korn is somewhat a fitting song for Shinji, since it reflects on some of his repeated failures despite him trying.

TuaT music rec  SPOILER: Show
On the new Evanescence album, you know how "Far from Heaven" transistions directly into "Part of me" ? That's basically Shinji's emotional curve of the last Rebuild movie.

Never gonna give you up with Gendo? XD

Sometimes I secretly think the reason I'm an A/S shipper is because I want Rei for myself. ~Chuckman
Eew, penis and testicles, gross! ~Reichu
My dude, "cross, crucifix, troubles, back, rood, buttock" sounds a lot closer to classic Evangelion than just one stray buttock roaming around in the film. ~FreakyFilmFan4ever
