Am I the only person that becomes both depressed and happy when you hear this song? It's really strange to describe this song...

Yeah, when I first heard it (before I'd seen EoE) I was like, "Wow, what a crappy song!"

And now when I hear it, I wanna cry. It's depressing, but the tone is kinda...happy. o_O;

It's a happy song about wanting to die. Of course it's going to cause cognitive dissonance - like this word:

GREEN

Though the last time I heard it, I just felt bewildered - it was being used as background to a slideshow of a SFWJ party, full of happy cosplayers

I broke into laughter the first time I heared it during EoE.

So very appropriate...

I cried.

Like a S/A shipper.

Well, I didn't -literally- cry, but I was freaking out. :lol:

I like it. To be honest, I didn't notice it in EoE until about the fourth time I saw the movie, or so... :) But I only like the first part, the "It all returns to nothing, it all comes tumbling down, tumbling, down, tumbling down" (or whatever) thing is a bit 'boring' to me... So, well... It fits better to the movie, but as a song I only like the first part.

The tune stuck in my mind after first seeing EoE (and the first time hearing it) - probably by the association of the jaunty melody with the shock of the first strangulation scene, and then the Instrumentality images - though I didn't catch the words that time around.

[code:1]Shinji (weakly - getting to his feet):
Help me... Somebody... Somebody help me...
Help me... Help me... Me... Help ME!!

(throws the table aside)

Don't leave me alone! Don't abandon me! Don't kill me!

(picks up a chair and throws it at Asuka's feet)

Asuka (coldly):
... No...

(Shinji strangles Asuka - Komm Susser Tod (Come Sweet Death) begins to play) [/code:1]

The song is beutiful. I listen to it near everyday... several times a day. It actually makes me feel better when I am sad or feel mono when I am happy. And I like being mono.

IIRC, the lyrics start just after Rei says "Then, what are you hands for?".

Ahahahahaha...

When I first saw that scene, I glomped Sachiel and started crying like a little baby.

That song cracks me up. Like, I like it, but I only play it in the confines of my own room, where no one can hear me and I dont feel stupid.

Its kind of scary.

Yeah...I understand now how it makes me feel.

When I first heard I was thinking, "Ahahaha, that's a funny song."

Two marathons put that out of my head.

That song is what set me on the path to collecting Eva soundtracks.

That´s a song I rarely hear. It´s oxymoronic and has that "deep" feeling. Indeed a song to hear once a week, or else it would be pretty much spoil the "effect" that the song has.
What?

No, you´re just a follower of subjectivism.

No, you´re just a follower of subjectivism.

I wish I was. Seriously, I'll just suddenly decide I've heard a song too many times, and it loses its power.
