Moooooooooooooosic

(Excuse the Nanami reference, but I was running out of ideas. school-chef )

Are there any songs you associate with characters from Utena? I thought it would be fun to share them. I've been finding a lack of Utena-esque songs so I wanted to see if anyone else had any ideas. emot-keke

The first ones that come in mind to me are all by Tori Amos. (etc-love) ..and all pretty much remind me of Utena or Utena/Anthy. Ahem. But anyway.!

Rasberry Swirl: http://www.hereinmyhead.com/collect/choir/choir4.html

Especially this part:
things are getting desperate
when all the boys can't be men
everybody knows i'm her friend
everybody knows i'm her man


Man, I want to see an Utena/Anthy AMV of this. emot-frown

Is anyone familiar with that really lovely Utena movie AMV with the song "Bachelorette" by Bjork? I love that song. But I also found "Bachelorette" by Tori Amos, and it makes me think of Utena too.

Bachelorette: http://www.hereinmyhead.com/collect/beesides/bache.html

bachelorette, the braves you painted pink for bachelorettes
you tried to show him that he can
but you can never rush a man

you must remember
you're a car girl
you're a star girl
you are at the door
the tide will turn
there's a window


Especially the references to cars and "pink". emot-dance

And someone pointed ou this Tori song in the roselinedcoffin community on LJ, so I wanted to post it too. "Mary". It reminds me of how Utena wants to save Anthy. ..And a pink car reference!

Mary: http://www.hereinmyhead.com/collect/beesides/mary.html

god i want to get you out of here
you can ride in a pink mustang
when i think of what we've done to you
oh, mary, can you hear me?

growing up isn't always fun
they tore your dress and stole your ribbons
they see you cry, they lick their lips
but butterflies don't belong in nets

oh mary, can you hear me?
mary, you're bleeding
mary, don't be afraid
we're just waking up
and i hear help is on the way



But most of these are pretty vague. (as are a lot of Tori songs, but I love them so much) Does anyone else have any other songs? etc-love Or just any favourite musical artists/songs in general? I wasn't sure where to put this..

I have the Utena movie AMV to Bachelorette; it's gorgeous, and part of the reason why I bought the Utena movie.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Funny you should ask!  A while back I tried to find decent songs for all the important characters.  I had mixed success, but I did find a few pairings that fit really well.  Second best is:

Miki - "Hallelujah," Leonard Cohen

Now 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?
It goes like this: the fourth, the fifth,
The minor fall, the major lift,
The baffled king composing hallelujah!
Hallelujah... hallelujah...
Hallelujah... hallelu-u-ujah.

Your faith was strong, but you needed proof.
You saw her bathing on the roof.
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya.
She tied you to a kitchen chair,
She broke your throat and she cut your hair,
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah.
Hallelujah... hallelujah...
Hallelujah... hallelu-u-ujah.


It goes on, and stays good.


But I found one incredibly good one, that nails the character.  For space reasons I'm only going to give the first verse, but you should read the whole song; if anything, it gets more relevant as it goes along.

Utena - "Everything You Want," Vertical Horizon

Somewhere there's speaking,
It's already coming in.
Oh, and it's rising in the back of your mind.
You never could get it
Unless you were fed it.
Now you're here, and you don't know why.

But under skinned knees and the skid marks,
Past the places where you used to learn,
You howl and listen,
Listen and wait for
Echoes of angels who won't return.

He's everything you want,
He's everything you need,
He's everything inside of you that you wish you could be,
He says all the right things at exactly the right time,
But he means nothing to you, and you don't know why.


If it's not clear, this is about Utena's relationship with her prince from childhood and her inner price.  To me it's a perfect fit.  It even gives away the end of the movie: "out of the island, into the highway."  Full lyrics here: http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/vertical … uwant.html

Other good matches are Anthy with Simon and Garfunkel's "I Am a Rock" and Akio with Evanescence's "Before the Dawn."

Me too, me too. emot-keke I remember seeing it a long time ago when my friend was introducing me to Bjork.. but I was fifteen (I was very naive for my age) and the whole video just made me go "what". Actually, everything I heard about Utena made me react that way. But then I actually checked it out. And love. etc-love etc-love

Wow, those songs are so fitting. emot-aaa Funny enough, "Everything you Want" just popped up in my playlist. I vaguely remember associating that song to Utena but I I didn't dig up the lyrics. Or maybe I got distracted. But wow, that's perfect. The girl in "Hallelujah" makes me think of Kozue, too.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

"Ghost" by the Indigo Girls fits Juri like a glove.

There's a letter on the desktop that I dug out of a drawer
The last truce we ever came to from our adolescent war
And I start to feel the fever of the warm air through the screen
You come regular like seasons shadowing my dreams

The Mississippi's mighty, but it starts in Minnesota
At a place where you can walk across with five steps down
And that's just how you started like a pinprick to my heart
But at this point you rush right through me and I start to drown

There's not enough room in this world for my pain
Signals crossed and love gets lost and time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost
I'm in love with your ghost

Dark and dangerous like a secret it gets whispered in a hush (don't tell a soul)
And when I wake the things I dreamt about you last night make me blush (don't
tell a soul)
When you kiss me like a lover and you sting me like a viper
I go follow to the river play your memory like the piper

And I feel it like a sickness how this love is killing me
But I would walk into the fingers of your fire willingly
Dance the edge of sanity I've never been this close
In love with your ghost

Unknowing captor you'll never know how much you
Pierce my spirit but I can't touch you
Can you hear it a cry to be free
Oh I'm forever under lock and key
As you pass through me

Now I see your face before me I would launch a thousand ships
To bring your heart back to my island as the sand beneath me slips
I burn up in your presence and I know now how it feels
To be weakened like Achilles with you always at my heels

This bitter pill to swallow is the silence that I keep
It poisons me I can't swim free the river is too deep
Though I'm baptized by your touch I am no worse at most
In love with your ghost

In love with your ghost
In love with your ghost

You are shadowing my dreams

Life is short: break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.

...Wowww.  There are a lot of songs that almost fit Juri, but this is the only one I've seen that really does justice to her feelings about Shiori.  I mean geez, right down to drowning in rivers.  Interestingly, it is undead-themed, just like the best thing I could find for her: "Rest in Peace," Spike's song from the Buffy musical episode.  "Ghost" is better, though.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Hee! I love finding songs that fit the Utena characters. Nice Tori Amos choices. You can find Utena or Anthy in nearly all of her songs, can't you? "Crucify" also reeks of Anthy, and "Precious Things" I always thought would make a nice AMV for Shiori.

A favorite of mine is "A Man" by Alanis Morisette which I always thought fit Ruka thinking about his relationship with Juri, especially the stanza "We don't fare well with endless reprimands":

I am a man as a man I've been told
Bacon is brought to the house in this mold
Born of your bellies I yearn for the cord
Years I have groveled repentance ignored

And I have been blamed
And I have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended

I am man who has grown from a son
Been crucified by enraged women
I am son who was raised by such men
I'm often reminded of the fools I'm among

And I have been shamed
And I have relented
I'm working my way toward our union mended
And I have been shamed
And I have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended

we don't fare well with endless reprimands
we don't do well with a life served as a sentence
this won't work well if you're hell-bent on your offence
cuz I am a man who understands your reticence

I am a man who still does what he can
to dispel our archaic reputation
I am a man who has heard all he can
cuz I don't fare well with endless punishment

Cuz I have been blamed and I have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended
And we have been blamed and we have repented
I'm working my way toward our union mended


ETA: And OMG, how could I forget from the same album the PERFECT Utena/Dios song?! "Precious Illusions" fits so well that I'm convinced Alanis must have seen the show somehow.

You'll rescue me right?
In the exact same way they never did..
I'll be happy right?
When your healing powers kick in
You'll complete me right?
Then my life can finally begin
I'll be worthy right
Only when you realize the gem I am?

But this won't work now the way it once did
And I won't keep it up even though I would love to
Once I know who I'm not then I'll know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was defenseless
And parting with them is like parting with invisible best friends

This ring will help me yet as will you knight in shining armor
This pill will help me yet as will these boys gone through like water

But this won't work as well as the way it once did
Cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
And though I know who I'm not I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

These precious illusions in my head did not let me down when I was a kid
And parting with them is like parting with a childhood best friend

I've spent so long firmly looking outside me
I've spent so much time living in survival mode

This won't work now the way it once did
Cuz I want to decide between survival and bliss
Now I know who I'm not
I don't I still don't know who I am
But I know I won't keep on playing the victim

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

...I have a ton of songs, but because I really ought to get some sleep tonight I won't try and remember them all. I would love to vid to the first in particular, but although I just bought a powerhouse Dell laptop I don't even have my fansubs with me at present, let along DVDs to rip for infernal vidding purposes. Dammit.


Flowers For You, Anika Moa (http://download.yousendit.com/E0EF06140D0F3FAF)

It's a lovely day a lovely day
It's a pretty old flower red and blue
It's the same old typical scenario
Take me away from your terrible lies
Take me away from it all
Show me I'm useful to steal for awhile
Show me how to rule the world

Chorus:
No more flowers for you
I could not sacrifice
And he's twisted along
And he's running down the road
To find his lost side
If it takes you away
I could ask you to stay
I can't change who I am
Be forgiven, understand
Does anyone want to reply?

A crazy old man you are
You work your charm
Experience all of the above
Lightning would fall wih those all around you
Just because you smiled
Take me to the sea where the sun birds all fly
Take me away there forever
Show me your father and the apple in his eye
Show me his spirit lives on

Chorus

I adore you
You conform don't you
To things that aren't really there
Oh I know you're not really there

Chorus


...from the first time I heard this (performed live about three inches from my face), I heard Akio and Anthy in it. I adore it, and like I said, would vid it if I had the chance.

Cry Wolf, Lisa Germano (http://download.yousendit.com/DFE4C6F97ABF2104)

Love is weird, love
She's overdone it, can't go on
She caused it all, cry, cry wolf
She didn't know, she didn't want it
She does a lot of things and regrets it
Love can hurt, love
Love is weird, love
A girl who wants it, but has no clue
She's says she'll give it, cry, cry wolf
A change of mind in a back seat or that dirty room
They say she got just what she wanted
Love can be bad
Love is weird, love
You should'a known better
You should'a known better
You should'a known, It's all your fault
You should'a known better
You should know better
Didn't they tell you
Didn't they tell you
Cry, cry wolf (repeat)


I hear Utena in this song. I think you know what episode I'm thinking of, too. [coughs]

Not The Girl You Think You Are, Crowded House (http://download.yousendit.com/999837A542140A17)

You're not the girl you think you are, no no
  They're not his shoes under your bed, yeah yeah
  He'll take you places in his car
  That you won't forget, no

  All the people that you know, yeah
  Will turn their heads as you go by
  But you'll be hard to recognise
  With the top down and the wind blowing, blowing

  He won't deceive you but tell you the truth
  Woman, he'll be no trouble

  He won't write you letters full of excuses
  C'mon, I believe you have one in a million

  You're not the girl you think you are, yeah
  There's someone standing in your place
  The bathroom mirror makes you look tall,
  But it's all in your head, in your head

  He won't deceive you he'll tell you the truth
  Woman, he'll be no trouble

  He won't write you letters full of excuses
  C'mon, I believe you have one in a million

  He won't deceive you but tell you the truth
  C'mon, I believe you have one
  You're not the girl you think you are
  C'mon I believe you have one
  You're not the girl you think you are
  C'mon I believe you have one
  You're not the girl you think you are


...and yeah, a bit of an Akio and Utena song there, too. I bet I have a million Nemuro/Mikage songs around here, and some Nanami too as they're my favourite characters, but sleep does beckon. ^____^

...aw, curse sleep, I just have to toss in one Mikage offering, too:

Map Of The Problematique, Muse (http://download.yousendit.com/C2A4CBA164D20D2D)

Fear and panic in the air
I want to be free
From desolation and despair
And I feel like everything I saw
Is being swept away
When I refuse to let you go

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over

Life will flash before my eyes
So scattered and lost
I want to touch the other side
And no one thinks they are to blame
Why can't we see
That when we bleed we bleed the same

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over
Loneliness be over
When will this loneliness be over?

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

I agree with YostinAust's selection for Akio "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race".

I listen to a lot of classical and traditional band music. Y'know, the stuff symphonies play and all. The song that I see fitting all of the duelists during their duels (imagine like a massive, eight-minute long AMV) is Mars from Gustav Holst's Planets.

One of my choices for Utena in in regards to her feeling about Anthy and trying to be her Prince and such. You know, the whole mentality of protecting, regardless of her crimes. It's....Uh...."Silver and Cold" by AFI.:

I, I came here by day,
but I left here in darkness
and found you, found you on the way.

Now, it is silver and silent.
It is silver and cold.
You in somber resplendence,
I hold...

[Chorus]
Your sins into me,
oh, my beautiful one.
Your sins into me.
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
and I'll beg for forgiveness.
Your sins into me,
Your sins into me
oh, my beautiful one.

Light, like the flutter of wings,
feel your hollow voice rushing
into me as you're longing to sing.
So I,I will paint you in silver.
I will wrap you in cold.
I will lift up your voice as I sink.

[Chorus]

Cold in life's throes.
I'll fall asleep for you.
Cold in life's throes.
I only ask you turn away.
Cold in life's throes.
I'll fall asleep for you.
Cold in life's throes
I only ask you turn
as they seep into me,
oh, my beautiful one, now...

[Chorus]

Your sins into me,
oh, my beautiful one, now
Your sins into me.
As a rapturous voice escapes
I will tremble a prayer
and I'll beg for forgiveness.
Your sins into me,
Your sins into...
Your sins into me
Oh my beautiful one!


I listened to "Animal I Have Become" by Three Days Grace, and it reminded me of Akio and his loss of his better half, Dios. I saw the connection. It's mainly in the chorus:

So what if you can see
The darker side of me
No one will ever change this
Animal I have become
Help me believe
It's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this
Animal I have become


Everytime I listen to "Afterbirth" by From First To Last I always think about Anthy...:

I was born in a house
Of glass and silver floors
There were so many people
Wearing masks
One question with two answers
I asked...X2

Anywhere is better than here
Away from you

[Chorus]
Breed me, breed me
Give me away
Lie to me, you lied so bad
Give me away
ohhhh

What do you say?
Just you and I
South on the five
For a couple of days?
You take your car
I'll take my bag
You take the wheel
I'll gather money
For gas

Anywhere is better than here
Away from you

[Chorus]

Danny...
Oh Danny [x7]

I was born to be given away...

[Chorus]

They told me...
A little boy who had been wearing my face
Had told me I was born to be given away


And that's all I've got so far. I'll find more while listening to my MP3 Player on shuffle. I'll write em down then post them here.


I want your love and I want your revenge, you and me can write a bad romance.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Okay. Just like I said I would, I found another song. It's a Shiori-Juri song, highlighting on the throes of the relationship and the fact that Shiori uses and abuses the fact that Juri loves her. It's "Black, Black Heart" by David Usher.:

Something ugly this way comes
Through my fingers sliding inside
All these blessings all these burns
I'm godless underneath your cover
Search for pleasure search for pain
In this world now I am undying
I unfurl my flag my nation helpless

[Chorus]
Black black heart why would you offer more
Why would you make it easier on me to satisfy
I'm on fire I'm rotting to the core
I'm eating all your kings and queens
All your sex and your diamonds

As I begin to lose my grip
On these realities your sending
Taste your mind and taste your sex
I'm naked underneath your cover
Covers lie and we will bend and borrow
With the coming sign
The tide will take the sea will rise and time will rape

[Chorus] X2


I want your love and I want your revenge, you and me can write a bad romance.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Emilie Autumn's Shalott reminds me of Movie Anthy

She's locked up with a spinning wheel
She can't recall what it was like to feel
She says, "This room's gonna be my grave
And there's no one who can save me,"
She sits down to her colored thread
She knows lovers waking up in their beds
She says, "How long can I live this way
Is there someone I can pay to let me go
'Cause I'm half sick of shadows
I want to see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the sun goes down
So why can't I

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it's here
And it's here for I've been told
That I'll die before I'm old
And the wind I know it's cold..."

She looks up to the mirrored glass
She sees a horse and rider pass
She says, "This man's gonna be my death
'Cause he's all I ever wanted in my life
And I know he doesn't know my name
And that all the girls are all the same to him
But still I've got to get out of this place
'Cause I don't think I can face another night
Where I'm half sick of shadows
And I can't see the sky
Everyone else can watch as the tide comes in
So why can't I

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it's here
And it's here for I've been told
That I'll die before I'm old
And the wind I know it's cold..."

But there's willow trees
And little breezes, waves, and walls, and flowers
And there's moonlight every single night
As I'm locked in these towers
So I'll meet my death
But with my last breath I'll sing to him I love
And he'll see my face in another place,"
And with that the glass above

Her cracked into a million bits
And she cried out, "So the story fits
But then I could have guessed it all along
'Cause now some drama queen is gonna write a song for me,"
She went down to her little boat
And she broke the chains and began to float away
And as the blood froze in her veins she said,
"Well then that explains a thing or two
'Cause I know I'm the cursed one
I know I'm meant to die
Everyone else can watch as their dreams untie
So why can't I

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it's here
And it's here
And it's here
And it's here
It's finally here

And it's raining
And the stars are falling from the sky
And the wind
And the wind I know it's cold
I've been waiting
For the day I will surely die
And it's here
And it's here for I've been told
That I'll die before I'm old
And the wind I know it's cold..."

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

This is a song for Utena and Anthy. It's Fefe Dobson's song "Take Me Away".:


I..was waiting all my life to know you
(all about you)
And now..I'm staring in your eyes in shea flour
(all about you)

And in our minds, it comes so easily
But theres a feeling comin over me
I want to show you,
But theres nowhere we can really be free
Everybody's watchin'

Wouldn't it be good if we could be together

Take me away,
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid
Navigating, I will steer
Into the sun, we will run

I try...to remember when I was just a child
(In a roo-oom)
And my...imagination used to run wild
(I never knee-ew)

Then nothing ever as it seems to be
When a dream collides with our reality
It should be easy when two people love each other truly
Everybody's talkin'

Wouldn't it be good if they would understand us...

Take me away,
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid (afraid)
Navigating, I will steer
Into the sun, we will run...

We, will run.
Whoooaaa whoa whoa whoa
We, will run.
Oh yeah yeah yeaah

Wouldn't it be good if they would understand us
Wouldn't it be good if we could be together...
TAKE ME AWAY!

Take me away, (take me away)
Take me far away from here
I will run with you
Don't be afraid (Don't..Be..Afraid)
Navigating, I will steer
Into the sun, we will run...

Run, whoa whoa whooaa
I will run with you wherever you go
Don't be afraid
Let's runaway and I will steer
Into the sun, we will run.


I want your love and I want your revenge, you and me can write a bad romance.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Heard a good Shiori song this morning on my way to physical therapy. "Get Busy Living Or Get Busy Dying (Do Your Part To Save The Scene And Stop Going To Shows)" by Fall Out Boy. It just seemed like stuff she'd say to Juri.:

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But we never stood a chance
And I'm not sure if it matters
If you are the shores, I am the waves begging for big moons
Iím mailing letters to addresses in a ghost town
(your secret's out)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't matter

This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters
But it must be said again that all us boys are just screaming
Into microphones for attention
Because we're just so bored
We never knew that you would pick it apart, oh
I'm falling apart to songs about hips and hearts
(your secret's out)

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't matter

I used to obsess over living,
Now I only obsess over you
Tell me you'd like boys like me better
In the dark lying on top of you
This has been said so many times that I'm not sure if it matters [x4]

I know this hurts, it was meant to (it was meant to)
Your secret's out and the best part is it isn't even a good one
And it's mind over you don't, don't, don't, don't matter

[Talking:]
From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How my worst fears are letting out
He said why put a new address
On the same old loneliness
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die
Now talking's just a waste of breath
And living's just a waste of death
And why put a new address
On the same old loneliness
And this is you and me
And me and you
Until we've got nothing left


I want your love and I want your revenge, you and me can write a bad romance.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

I have a few. emot-biggrin

characters:
Poison(Alice Cooper) reminds me of Touga:

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look could kill
My pain, your thrill

I want to love you but I better not touch (Don't touch)
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much (Too much)
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison running through my veins 

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I'm caught
Your skin, so wet

I hear you calling and it's needles and pins (And pins)
I want to hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don't want to touch you but you're under my skin (Deep in)
I want to kiss you but your lips are venomous poison
You're poison running through my veins

One look could kill
My pain, your thrill
I want to love you but I better not touch (Don't touch) 
You're poison running through my veins
You're poison, I don't wanna break these chains
Poison

I want to love you but I better not touch (Don't touch)
I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop
I want to kiss you but I want it too much (Too much)
I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison, yeah

Snow White Queen by Evanescence is total win for the Juri Triangle:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9O22FwnO … annel_page


Stoplight, lock the door.
Don't look back.
Undress in the dark,
And hide from you,
All of you.

You'll never know the way your words have haunted me.
I can't believe you'd ask these things of me.
You don't know me.

You belong to me,
My snow white queen.
There's nowhere to run, so let's just get it over.
Soon I know you'll see,
You're just like me.
Don't scream anymore my love, 'cause all I want is you.

Wake up in a dream.
Frozen fear.
All your hands on me.
I can't scream

I can't escape the twisted way you think of me.
I feel you in my dreams and I don't sleep.

I Don't wanna Stop by Ozzy Osbourne for Akio:

I like playing with danger and fear
Everybody's walkin' but nobody's talkin'
It looks a lot better from here

All my life I've been over the top
I don't know what I'm doing all I know is I don't wanna stop
All fired up, I'm gonna go 'til I drop
You're either in or in the way, don't make me I don't wanna stop

Why don't they ever listen to me
It's just a one way conversation
Nothing they say is gonna set me free
Don't need no mental masturbation

Too many religions but only one god
I don't need another saviour
Don't try to change my mind
You know I'm one of a kind
Ain't gonna change my bad behaviour

All my life I've been over the top
I don't know what I'm doing all I know is I don't wanna stop
All fired up, I'm gonna go 'til I drop
You're either in or in the way, don't make me I don't wanna stop
All my life I've been over the top
I don't know what I'm doing all I know is I don't wanna stop
All fired up, I'm gonna go 'til I drop
You're either in or in the way, don't make me I don't wanna stop

For Utena as a whole, these remind of it:

The movie:

I linger in the doorway
Of alarm clock screaming
Monsters calling my name
Let me stay
Where the wind will whisper to me
Where the raindrops, as theyíre falling, tell a story

[Chorus:]
In my field of paper flowers
And candy clouds of lullaby (flowers)
I lie inside myself for hours
And watch my purple sky fly over me (flowers)

Donít say Iím out of touch
With this rampant chaos - your reality
I know well what lies beyond my sleeping refuge
The nightmare I built my own world to escape

Utena: Lies- the movie again- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNrhbEgLXNg

Marilyn Manson:

She reminds me of the one in school,
when I was cuttin'
she was dressed in white.
And I couldn't take my eyes off her,
but that's not what I took off that night,.
She'll never cover up what we did with her dress.
No.
She said "kiss me it'll heal,
but it won't forget".
"Kiss me it'll heal,
but it won't forget".

I don't mind you keeping me on pins and needles.
If I could stick to you,
and you stick me too.

Don't break,
Don't break my heart,
and I won't break your heart shaped glasses.
Little girl,
little girl you should close your eyes,
that blue is getting me high.
Don't break,
Don't break my heart,
and I won't break your heart shaped glasses.
Little girl,
little girl you should close your eyes,
that blue is getting me high.
Making me low.
That blue is getting me high.
Making me low.

(Heart Shaped Glasses)

and most of all:

http://www.lyricsfreak.com/m/marilyn%20 … 89011.html

dont want you and I dont need you
Dont bother to resist, Ill beat you
Its not your fault that youre always wrong
The weak ones are there to justify the strong
The beautiful people, the beautiful people
Its all relative to the size of your steeple
You cant see the forest for the trees
You cant smell
Your own shit on your knees
Hey you, what do you see?
Something beautiful, something free?
Hey you, are you trying to be mean?
If you live with apes, man, its hard to be clean
Theres no time to discriminate,
Hate every motherfucker
Thats in your way
The worms will live in every host
Its hard to pick which one they eat most
The horrible people, the horrible people
Its as anatomic as the size of your steeple
Capitalism has made it this way,
Old-fashioned fascism
Will take it away
(chorus)

The Beautiful People.

sorry, that was waaay too long, but i got excited.

by the way, does any one know who serenitygothic and twilightpixie  are on youtube? they make awesome amvs.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

ooopsies forgot one

We Rock by Dio (ahh teh irony)

You watch their faces
You'll see the traces
Of the things they want to be
But only we can see

They come for killing
They leave and still it seems
The cloud that's left behind
Oh, can penetrate your mind

But sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock,
We Rock, We Rock

We pray to someone
But when it's said and done
It's really all the same
With just a different name

So many voices
All giving choices
If we listen they will say
Oh, we can find the way

But we'll sail on, sing
a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock,
We Rock, We Rock
We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock
We Rock!

We Rock
You watch their faces
You'll see the traces
Of the things they want to be
But only we can see

They come for killing
They leave and still it seems
The cloud that's left behind
Can penetrate your mind

Sail on, sing a song, carry on
Cause We Rock, We Rock,
We Rock, We Rock
We Rock, We Rock, We Rock, We Rock

Ride out - stand and shout - carry on
Sail on - Sing your song - carry on

Cause We Rock, We Rock,
see how We Rock
We Rock
That's rock
We Rock
We Rock

it reminds me of Dios, Anthy, Akio and Utena in the last two Arcs. especially because of akio's exquisite hairmetal

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Ruka- Pink Triangle by Weezer

When I'm stable long enough
I start to look around for love
See a sweet in floral print
my mind begins the arrangements
but When I start to feel that pull
turns out i just pulled myself
she would never go with me
were I the last guy on Earth
I'm dumb, she's a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
we were good as married in my mind
but married in my mind's no good
a Pink Triangle on her sleeve
let me know the truth, let me know the truth


And Saionji's theme has to be Lord Vegeta's Cooking Hell.

Seriously, replace Vegeta's name with his and you could see him singing this in the forest before Nanami came. Only Saionji would take cooking so seriously. emot-biggrin

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Also, Don't Be Square Be There by Adam and the Ants. It seems to capture the feel of the whole show - the rebellioussness, the sexiness, the randomness.

Music
for a future age
Don't be square be there
All good clean fun
(whatever that means)
Antmusic for sexpeople
Sexmusic for antpeople
Get off your knees
And hear the insect prayer

Dirk wears white sox


The brain will suffer
So ride hard ride clean
How reputations scare
And love goes to war
(whatever that means)
Antmusic for sexpeople
Sexmusic for antpeople
Get off your knees
And hear the insect prayer

You may not like it now but you will
(the future will not stand still)

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Touga's chantey
Voltaire, "When You Are Evil"

When the Devil is too busy
And Death's a bit too much
They call on me by name you see,
For my special touch.
To the Gentlemen I'm Miss Fortune
To the Ladies I'm Sir Prize
But call me by any name
Any way it's all the same

I'm the fly in your soup
I'm the pebble in your shoe
I'm the pea beneath your bed
I'm a bump on every head
I'm the peel on which you slip
I'm a pin in every hip
I'm the thorn in your side
Makes you wriggle and writhe

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

While there's children to make sad
While there's candy to be had
while there's pockets left to pick
While there's grannies left to trip down the stairs
I'll be there, I'll be waiting 'round the corner
It's a game. I'm glad I'm in it
'Cause there's one born every minute

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

I pledge my allegiance, to all things dark
And I promise on my damned soul
To do as I am told, Lord Beelzebub
Has never seen a soldier quite like me
Not only does his job, but does it happily.

I'm the fear that keeps you awake
I'm the shadows on the wall
I'm the monsters they become
I'm the nightmare in your skull
I'm a dagger in your back
An extra turn upon the rack
I'm the quivering of your heart
A stabbing pain, a sudden start.

And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The Devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need

It gets so lonely being evil
What I'd do to see a smile
Even for a little while
And no one loves you when you're evil
I'm lying through my teeth!
Your tears are all the company I need


Anthy's chanson
Emilie Autumn, "Rose red"

Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
I wil marry at thy will sire
At thy will

A thousand years gone by
Too late to wonder why
I'm here alone
If in my darkest hour
She rose that fell a flower
I should have known

Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you can capture me

CHORUS
Tell me no more stories
And I'll tell you no lies
No one wants to hurt me
But everybody tries
And if you think that I've been waiting
For my planets to align
It's Time you go on
Get your things, get up, get out
I'n doing fine, yeah yeah

Someday these walls will speak
The floors beneath you creek
To call my name
Here in my web of dreams
My whispers turn to screams
And place the blame

Rose Rose Rose Red
Will I ever see thee wed
Only if you discover me

CHORUS

For this freedom
I have given all I had
For this darkness
I gave my light
For this wisdom
I have lost my innocence
Take my petals
And cover me with the night

CHORUS

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

Awesome choice for Anthy, Melegant. Though Touga is by no means the anarchic demon Voltaie is describing in that song. Remember his whole one-episode redemption arc in Season 3? He always struck me as ikuhara's take on the traditional boyfriend charactyer in the Magical Girl series. Anyways, I always thought Come On Home (Franz Ferdinand) suited him better:

Although my lover lives in a place that I can't live
I kind of find I like a life this lonely
It rips and pierces me, in places I can't see
I love the rip of nerves
The rip that wakes me
So I'm dissatisfied, I love dissatisfied
I love to feel there's always more that I need

So Come On Home
So Come On Home
So Come On Home
Home!

You're where you want to be,
I'm where I want to be
Come on
We're chasing everything we've ever wanted
I replace you easily, replace pathetically
I flirt with any flighty thing that falls my way
But how I needed you
When I needed you.
Lets not forget we are so strong, so bloody strong

So Come On Home
So Come On Home
So Come On Home
Home!

Blue light falls upon your perfect skin
Falls and you draw back again
Falls and this is how I fell

And I cannot forget
And I cannot forget

Come on home
So come on home
So come on home
But don't forget to leave

I must agree, Your songs suits him more. I have choosed Voltaire because of Touga's many masks and sense for drama. But Your song describes him in more "civil" and accurate way.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

It's not a song. It's a poem by Katherin Philips in 1664...

But, oh my god, this poem reminds me of Utena and Anthy SOOOOO MUCH!!!

The first few stanzas reminded me of Anthy, but same could've applied to Utena, who stayed in her coffin until Dios presented Anthy before her, inspiring her to become a prince and save the witch.

First line of second stanza was probably meant to be "carcass"

To My Excellent Lucasia, on Our Friendship

I did not live until this time
Crowned my felicity,
When I could say without a crime,
'I am not thine, but thee.'

This carcase breathesd, and walked, and slept,
So that the world believed
There was a soul the motions kept;
But they were all deceived.

For as a watch by art is wound
To motion, such was mine;
But never had Orinda found
A soul till she found thine;

Which now inspires, cures, and supplies,
And guides my darkened breast:
For thou art all that I can prize,
My joy, my life, my rest.

No bridegroom's nor crown-conqueror's mirth
To mine compared can be:
They have but pieces of this Earth,
I've all the world in thee.

Then let our flames still light and shine,
And no false fear control,
As innocent as our design,
Immortal as our soul.

Re: Moooooooooooooosic

"Halo" by Beyonce makes me think of what Anthy is thinking when she sees Utena. So it's pretty much what I view as her song for her.

Halo by Beyonce

Remember those walls I built
Well, baby they're tumbling down
And they didn't even put up a fight
They didn't even make up a sound

I found a way to let you in
But I never really had a doubt
Standing in the light of your halo
I got my angel now

It's like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
It's the risk that I'm takin'
I ain't never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You're the only one that I want
Think I'm addicted to your light

I swore I'd never fall again
But this don't even feel like falling
Gravity can't forget
To pull me back to the ground again

Feels like I've been awakened
Every rule I had you breakin'
The risk that I'm takin'
I'm never gonna shut you out

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
Halo, halo

Everywhere I'm looking now
I'm surrounded by your embrace
Baby I can see your halo
You know you're my saving grace

You're everything I need and more
It's written all over your face
Baby I can feel your halo
Pray it won't fade away

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo

I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo


I want your love and I want your revenge, you and me can write a bad romance.
