Title: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Kristen-la on July 15, 2010, 07:36:04 AM
what songs remind you of Uglies?


I say What Lies Beneath by Breaking Benjamin for a Special...

For a Pretty probaly One Of Those Girls by Avril Lavigne, or Brick by Boring Brick by Paramore....

And for an Ugly...Sick Little Games by All Time Low


Then a Smokey Playing God by Paramore

This may sound weird but when I hear Katy Perry's "California Girls" I always picture New Pretty Town and a big party in a Party Tower.

Resistance by Muse - Zane
Careful by Paramore - Shay

The Business Of Paper Stars by Hawthorne Heights fits Tally, if you get it.

Perfect song for Shay! All I Ever Wanted-Kelly Clarkson

Perfect song for Shay! All I Ever Wanted-Kelly Clarkson

But it doesn't cover her whole character... I do get it though.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 07:47:06 AM
Ooh perfect song for the end of Pretties, right before Tally is given the Special Operation. Beauty Queen-Ben's Brother
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 07:47:59 AM
Yeah I know it doesn't cover her whole character, I was going to be more specific but there's so many parts of the book that would be perfect for her.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 07:49:32 AM
Yeah.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 07:51:35 AM
Please no one hurt me for this, but I think even though I despise miley cyrus,her song I Can't Be Tamed seems perfect for Shay right before/after she gets Specialed.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 07:52:51 AM
I'm not gonna listen to it. And Careful by Paramore already covers pretty and Special Shay.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 15, 2010, 07:54:13 AM
i like marilyn manson's "the beautiful people" to show how sinister the beauty is
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 07:55:37 AM
... Well, this isn't all that good, but Tally to Dr. Cable: Just Like You by Three Days Grace.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 07:56:20 AM
I don't blame you for not listening to it, I wouldn't have but I heard part of it in Target and can't get it out of my head. I think The Fame-Lady Gaga is a great representation of the Pretty society and the society after the Mind-Rain.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 07:57:06 AM
Have you heard the songs I'm suggesting?
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 07:59:38 AM
I just listened to Just like you, great pick! It's exactly like Tally's talking to Dr. cable
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 08:00:36 AM
IKR! I didn't think so, then I listened to it, and realized it was perfect.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:02:49 AM
It's also a little Shay to Tally. Shay when she is cutting for clarity and then when she foils Tally and Zane's escape.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 08:03:27 AM
Well, did you hear the others I posted?
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 08:05:11 AM
A couple of other songs that make me think of the books, but I can't exactly choose a part: Ignorance by Paramore, MK Ultra by Muse, Headstrong by Trapt and Rush by Aly and Aj.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:10:15 AM
Love that song Carful for shay
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 08:10:42 AM
It's so perfect, isn't it?
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:11:31 AM
Yeah I'm trying to find a song for Cutter Shay.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 15, 2010, 08:11:54 AM
That is the song.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:20:05 AM
Yeah in some ways it is but, there still some parts of cutter shay I feel it is missing. I think I found one, it's called Cut by Plumb
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 15, 2010, 08:23:40 AM
how about numb by linkin park " all I want to do/ Is be more like me and be less like you" . i think it would be good when shay is cutting, she's trying to escape the pretty mindedness and become an individual again
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:31:29 AM
I like that one too.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 15, 2010, 08:37:33 AM
I really like the song Cut by Cure for Tally to Shay after Shay is Special
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 15, 2010, 11:41:02 PM
I really like the song Cut by Cure for Tally to Shay after Shay is Special
if you mean the song i'm thinking of, i like that idea, i also think that would be good for tally to zane, when he dies, as if she is wishing that she had been more loving to him before he died instead of being so wrapped up in her special mind

I think What I've Done by Linkin Park (I know it was the end of Transformers too) would be perfect for the end of Uglies.
that would be really good, or during the diego war when tally and shay realise that all the destruction is their faults
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shay-la-wa on July 16, 2010, 12:41:49 AM
YEAH! I never thought of how Linkin Park songs went in there before.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 16, 2010, 02:34:14 AM
Linkin Park are very good for uglies songs :)
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 16, 2010, 08:57:46 AM
Yep!
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Shadow-Thief on July 16, 2010, 12:11:04 PM
wow...you guys seem to have a whole soundtrack picked out.  I listened to some of the songs and they fit very well.

Now, how about music for extras?
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 16, 2010, 12:20:26 PM
Again this would work for Uglies or Extras. The Fame by Lady Gaga.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 17, 2010, 09:22:32 AM
Beautiul Dirty Rich by Lady Gaga would be good for Pretties, too, I think. The Fame would definitely be good for Extras
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 17, 2010, 12:26:12 PM
Even though she is way to theatrical I can't help but love Lady Gaga's songs.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 18, 2010, 05:05:09 AM
its nice to see more little monsters about the place ;D
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Mara-la on July 18, 2010, 09:01:36 AM
Um....
Paparazzi by Lady Gaga for Extras (because of all the fame)
Hot and Cold by Katy Perry for Uglies (Tally's constant changing)
Blah Blah Blah by Ke$ha for Specials (The Cutters don't really care what the law says)
Perfect by Headley for Pretties (they look pretty, but aren't...)

Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 18, 2010, 12:22:22 PM
Ke$ha is a little bit of a Lady Gaga poser, but I like some of her songs.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: JimmyLost on July 18, 2010, 05:02:39 PM
no Ke-dollersign-ha please, especialy not that song  :P
Paparazzi could work for extras...
Hot and cold is too upity for Tally imo
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Mara-la on July 18, 2010, 11:30:26 PM
and my suggestion for pretties?
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: shadley on July 19, 2010, 12:16:16 AM
I haven't heard that song, I'll look it up
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 19, 2010, 09:39:37 AM
possibly, mad world, when zane dies and they reflect upon the impact of the diego war

It's Not Me Its You by Skillet

For when Dr. cable manipulates Tally into doing dirty work.

Lol, that song is hilarious.

@ James-Chan my brother watches that guy
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 19, 2010, 11:01:36 PM
i think the "key of awesome" videos are the best parodies
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Mara-la on July 19, 2010, 11:38:10 PM
I liked the tiktok parody with the brunette. I think it was well done.
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Chloe-Wa on July 21, 2010, 10:01:41 AM
yep, and their adam lambert parody "why are you filming me" was pretty funny :)
Title: Re: UGLIES SOUNTRACK.....WHAT WOULD WORK?
Post by: Mara-la on July 23, 2010, 10:14:06 AM
Haven't seen that one yet.
Although, when I first watched that, I thought they said "donkey of awesome" at the end.
