Title: The perfect song for the series!
Post by: holywalrus2 on November 28, 2012, 09:48:14 AM
I think the song Monster by Paramore fits for what I've read of the books. Some verses are how Tally feels about the operation, some about how Cable feels about the lesions and things.

Like the line:
I'm only human, I've got a skeleton in me
But I'm not the villain
Despite what you're always preaching

Seems perfect for Cable, and for Tally:

Well you find your strength in solution
But I liked the tension
And not always knowing the answers

Dontcha think?

I think You are More by Tenth Avenue North is a good one.

There's a girl in the corner
With tear stains on her eyes
From the places she's wandered
And the shame she can't hide

She says, "How did I get here?
I'm not who I once was
And I'm crippled by the fear
That I've fallen too far to love."

For Shay singing to David I think I knew you were trouble by Talor Swift would have been a perfect match for their relationship. All thanks to Tally-wa

Its one of those songs that never gets old no matter how many times you hear it. Like quite a few Linkin Park ones.

What I've Done is a perfect song for quite a few book movies. But Uglies...it fits so much it hurts.

I know the perfect song but it is Shay singing it to David-I knew you were trouble by Taylor Swift.

Tally's theme song - Wide Awake by Katy Perry. SO PERFECT. It really fits her situation in Pretties. Also I think Viva la Vida fits Dr. Cable at the end of Specials, bu the song at the beginning of this thread is definitely her theme song.
Title: Re: The perfect song for the series!
Post by: Straif on November 15, 2013, 02:48:35 PM
Isn't that one from Catching Fire? Because I have some comments that would probably be raised by that...
Viva La Vida (aka "Bush's Lament")...yes, agreed.
Also, The Pheonix by Fallout Boy. I mean, COME ON..the begining of the corus is "Hey, Youngblood"

Which one's from Catching Fire?
Title: Re: The perfect song for the series!
Post by: Straif on November 15, 2013, 02:54:52 PM
Wide Awake, I THINK...don't qoute me on it though, I'm trying to avoid any and all music/people associated with that flaming metor of fandom pain.
Title: Re: The perfect song for the series!
Post by: Panzercrappitastica on November 15, 2013, 03:02:16 PM
I don't think so, I think that it's just a song...
Title: Re: The perfect song for the series!
Post by: Ceres on November 15, 2013, 03:25:55 PM
No, it's not. But the music for Catching Fire is really good! You shouldn't avoid good music just because you don't like the fandom, and the music itself has nothing to do really with Catchibg Fire.

Oh no I love the fandom. Its just that I can't watch the movies or think about them without geting madly jealous.
And trust me, it does. If its on the official soundtrack, its part of the fandom.

State of Seduction (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk2wYGNnbV0 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk2wYGNnbV0)) and No esay way (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQhiV9_sWEU (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQhiV9_sWEU)) by Digital Daggers
The first one fits more because of the dark, threating mood. And from the secound song are this lines:

I'm a victim of my instinct.
Unraveling and reeling, think I'm wise.
Our freedom can be deadly.
I watch the walls around me, falling down.
So far away, from safe and sound.
...I've lost control, I've lost control...

Where do I run? Where do I run now?
There's no easy way, no easy way out.
When everything's come, when everything's come, undone.
There's no easy way, no easy way, out.

I'm a prisoner, but believing.
Twisting my delusions, best beware.
My peace can be deceiving.
I'm sitting in the deep end of despair.
So far away, from safe and sound. I've lost control, I've lost control...

They sound like Tally as she is a special

Abrahams Daughter by Arcarde Fire. Its a song for HG, but its also works with Uglies. Then is Cable Abraham, Isac Peris or all the oter Pretties, the Lonsome Hill the Operation, the Angel is the hole system and Abrahams Daugther is Tally

And there is a German Song named ,,Schöne neue Welt" by Culcha Candela, and the text fits perfect to the triologie. Like this part of the song:

Cameras are everywere, what a great show,
the same who has my data, I have my own video,
Thanks to surveillance state, I can now sleep blissfully
everyone has a chip in the head, lie in bed and count the sheep
all are happy, have her botox smile placed
fett sucitioned and awy, the nose now sits perfectly
we can so many make from us, also for little mony,
brest out, belly in, placed in a row,
a high heal our world
(orginal: Überall sind Kameras, was für eine tolle Show,
 egal wer meine Daten hat, ich hab mein eigenses Video,
Dank Überwachungsstaat kann ich jetzt seelig schlafen,
jeder hat 'nen Chip im Kopf, liegt im Bettchen und zählt die Schafe,
alle sind fröhlich, haben ihr Botoxlächeln aufgesetzt,
Fett abgesaut und weg, und die Nase sitzt jetzt auch pervekt,
wir können so vieles aus und machen, auch für kleines Geld,
ein Hoch auf unsere heile Welt)

It's Time is totally Shay's theme song. Think about it.

I am currently in the middle of Pretties, and I can't stop thinking of Inner Universe. Great song, really suits the series since it is about trying to keep your identity in a crazy world.

Wow, The Phoenix fits really good for ,Specials' But do you know ,Yought of the Nation" by P.O.D? Its the perfect song if you read the Special-invasion of Smoke, or the endfight from ,Pretties', or the beginning of ,Specials' (althought I allways think on Star Trek-First Contact if I hear it, the backgroundmusic is just like the Borg-Invasion-Theme from this film)

Post by: Yone on November 21, 2015, 10:32:02 PM
Sorry that I reply on my own post, but do you know ,I am Shell I am Bone' by Gazelle Twin? This song would fit so perfect for Specials.
