It's game time!  
Hey Bleachness, let's play a game in celebration of me and the Internet getting over our little two week break-up (I admit it, I can't live without him).  So I've been binging on music lately and was wondering, what songs do you think perfectly represent a character or situation from Bleach?  Kubo's obviously inspired by music, and I know I am when writing smut fics about my favorite Bleach characters.  I thought it would be fun as a way to expose ourselves to other genres of music or just hear a cool song.

To be super helpful, make sure you post a link to the song so we can listen to it (if you can find one) and/or some text lyrics to read to go "A-HA, I see it, that Britney Spears song is totes Aizen/Gin/Tosen threesome." 

I'll start!

"Fallin" by Chris Brown totally makes me think of Ichigo, especially up to the most current manga chapters.  (I know, kind of a douchey singer to start off with but the song just fits soooo well!)  It really expresses his inner struggle, but I don't wanna say too much and spoil anyone so I'll leave it to you guys to read and/or listen and judge for yourselves.

Listen here:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c_CjrPUITgs
Read the lyrics here:  http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/c/chris_brown/fallin_down.html

I've got more songs in mind than just one but I thought one was a good start, heh. Oh, I usually use www.azlyrics.com for lyric links because they have a lot less crap on the page but this song has a lot of inaccuracies over there (it's all user submitted, so it happens).

Your turn, go!  :D

WHAT HTML FAIL?
As an RPer, I almost always have to have a song for the characters I play, so here are my picks:

"Don't Cry Out", by Shiny Toy Guns for Orihime: I think this is a really perfect song for her, covering everything she's felt from her capture on out, both for her friends and the ones who captured her. (Especially Ulquiorra, but some of Grimmjow as well.)

"Hear Me Now", by Framing Hanley for Shuuhei: I found this one right after he started his fight with Tousen, and I think it's just so perfect for him- what he's gained, what he's lost, his fighting-pacifist view of life. It's especially fitting for his last confrontation with Tousen, I think.

Re: WHAT HTML FAIL?
Oooooh, I really like "Don't Cry Out." And I think you're right on with the song representing Orihime, it really fits her lyrically and musically--it's a fun dance beat but with a sad melody in it.

As for "Hear Me Now," I see what you mean for Shuuhei; the chorus fits him perfectly. The song itself has that same mixture of pain and a desperate plea that really shows his feelings about Tousen.

I'm submiting Goodbyes Waves and Driveways by the Rocket Summers for Renji/Ichigo. Even if the melody may be a little weak for them, the lyrics are the best I've found so far <3

But we stand here both proud both wrong and right
Throwing cheap shots in this stubborn fight
And our lives are so intertwined in one
But we're just so stuck in this moment it's clear that were coming undone

Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=II28sjA9jC8
Rest of the lyrics are there too ^^

and then the band Eagles of Death Metal always makes me think of Grimmjow. Maybe the line from Cherry Cola is the one that fits best tho'; I'm so real I don't need to fake it. xD
Silvianightshade_ave on January 15th, 2010 09:53 pm (UTC)
Ahhhhhhhhhh, I saw The Rocket Summer in concert a few years ago in Dallas at the House of Blues and they were awesome!! Excellent song choice for Ren/Ichi pairing. :]

Tough game for me, since I'm not musical at all, but I'll try it with a couple of them:

For Starrk, the song that always springs to mind is "Space Oddity" by David Bowie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rKE3FSPJu-4

I've never heard a song that better personifies the feeling of loneliness and isolation, and the ending matches what became of him perfectly.

For Ichigo, I've begun to notice that "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen is starting to be eerily appropriate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe9PSliDG4M

It could even be said to address both his hardcore Mother issues, and his guilt regarding his recent loss of control and murder of Ulquiorra.


For Barragan, I would pick "Suicide is painless," the opening theme of the old sitcom M*A*S*H* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gO7uemm6Yo

I found myself singing it to myself during his flashback, and some of the lyrics pretty accurately reflect both his outlook on his powers, and their nature. Especially the second to final verse, which opens with "The sword of time will pierce your skin// it doesn't hurt when it begins// but as it works its way on in// The pain grows stronger, watch it grin.


Yeah... they're all insanely old songs... I'm not really into music, but I'm not a snob, I promise. >.

I know it's unoriginal, as the title of the song was used for two of the chapters of it, but the song Jugulator by Judas Priest really fits with the final Ichigo/Grimmjow fight.

For a character, I'll pick Ulquiorra during the moments where he ordered Orihime to come with him to Hueco Mundo and when he first faced off with Ichigo near the stairs, when he was talking about Rukia. For those moments, for him there, I would pick Haze by Korn. (I'm not the biggest fan of Korn, but that song just fits, I think)

For Aizen, I pick 'Get Down with the Sickness' by Disturbed. It's not really the words so much as the tone of the song makes me think of an evil manipulative bastard. And when I think evil manipulative bastard, I think Aizen.

Totally with you on Ulquiorra/Korn there. And yes to Aizen/Disturbed, yes yes yes. I haven't heard Jugulator, though.

it's green and tastes like licorice.: ichigorionarch on January 15th, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
I really only have one and it's kind of unfounded, but...

Shinji Hirako, "Rock DJ" by Robbie Williams

"Babylon back in business
Can I get a witness?
Every girl, every man
Houston, do you hear me?
Ground control, can you feel me?
Need permission to land"
Silvianightshade_ave on January 15th, 2010 09:45 pm (UTC)
LOL that song is totally Shinji! If Hiyori heard it she's punch him out as I imagine she likes more rock stuff than Robbie Williams, hahah.

My two cents ;D
The Great Western Road by David Byrne: For me this is a totally Ryuuken song, more than the dark lyrics (which i feel perfectly appropiate for him) is the bitterness of the music itself. everytime I hear it I think about Ryuuken.

A man sticks his fingers inside of his mouth
The words are stuck in there
He fishes them out
Whispers and mumbles, statements and verse, curses and love songs
For nobody else




Acapulco 78 by Fase: A post-Hueco Mundo Orihime song. She has grew up, the world around her is ok and she is happy again (and truly madly in love~ )

and in the kitchen
all is ordered
there is no dirty dishes
I start to dancing
in the news there is nothing to say
cause in the world everything has its place
(...)
in the avenue
everything is a carnival
cause in your world
I have my own place...
(trashy translation xD)



When You're Evil by Voltaire: Come on, you have to admit it! It's his song!! xDDD *imagines Gillians dancing around him xD*

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



Moar later~

xDDDDD

@#¤%: Ichigo-qtfigaro_figaro on January 15th, 2010 10:17 pm (UTC)
There's this one song that always makes me think of Ichigo and his fear of his inner hollow. It's called Silent Shout and is performed by Swedish electronica duo The Knife. Song&Lyrics here

If I explain it once thoroughly
He'll have you later 'cause it's never free
You were at the gigantic spree
I caught a glimpse, now it haunts me


totally makes me think of Ichi!Thing. :D

I associate Shunsui with Mylene Farmer's laisse le vent emporter tout ("let the wind carry everything away") -- here's a version on youtube.

It's a lovely song.

. . . I let the wind carry everything away,
I let the wind take care of everything . . .
SilvaNoir: EVILxilvrin on January 16th, 2010 12:41 am (UTC)
follow me into the desert

There's a song that always makes me think of the Noi/Nel, Noi/Tesla relationship, Soundgarden's "Burden in my hand"

"Follow me into the desert
As thirsty as you are
Crack a smile and cut your mouth
And drown in alcohol
Cause down below the truth is lying
Beneath the riverbed
So quench yourself and drink the water
That flows below her head
Oh, no there she goes
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine
I shot my love today, would you cry for me
I lost my head again, would you lie for me
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
I lost my head again, would you cry for me

Close your eyes and bow your head
I need a little sympathy
Cause fear is strong and love's for everyone
Who isn't me
So kill your health and kill yourself
And kill everything you love
And if you live you can fall to pieces
And suffer with my ghost

Just a burden in my hand
Just an anchor on my heart
Just a tumor in my head
And I'm in the dark
So follow me into the desert
As desperate as you are
Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
And all the little pigs have God
"

Seriously, is that a perfect fit or what?
SilvaNoir: EVILxilvrin on January 16th, 2010 12:56 am (UTC)
Also,
"Into the Hollow" by Queens of the Stone Age and "The Hollow" by A Perfect Circle for... the hollows. *obvious*

As Well as "Junkie" by Poe for Gin/Ran (from Rangiku's pov)

"I know how to wear the costume
I know how to wear the mask
I even like the feel of having to ask
I like the sound of your whistle
I like the way you wear your grin
I even like the taste of my will caving in
I'm not a junkie for your love, I'm not a junkie
I'm not a junkie for your love, I'm not a junkie
Don't tell the captain
Don't you tell him what I've done

(Keep it coming)
(Keep it coming)
Stop
This is such a sweet collaboration
You've got the power, I got the shame
Funny thing is we both want somebody to blame
I'm not a junkie for your love, I'm not a junkie
I'm not a junkie for your love, I'm not a junkie
Don't tell the captain
Don't you tell him what I've done"

I imagine it as her having an affair with Gin, knowing it's 'wrong' to be with a traitor and telling herself she doesn't need it though she really wants it, trying to keep it secret from Hitsugaya who would obviously not approve.

Becky: Bleach - UlquiHime Handsgully_moe on January 16th, 2010 03:34 am (UTC)
I have so many songs right now. I have an UlquiHime soundtrack, as well as an IchiRuki and Gotei 13 fan soundtrack in the works, but I have never gotten around to sharing them.

However, Falling Away With You by Muse fits the UlquiHime relationship perfectly, especially their final scene.



I can't remember when it was good
moments of happiness elude
maybe I just misunderstood

all of the love we left behind
watching the flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find

so I'll love whatever you become
and forget the reckless things we've done
I think our lives have just begun
I think our lives have just begun

and I'll feel my world crumbling,
and I'll I feel my life crumbling
and feel my soul crumbling away
and falling away,
falling away with you

staying awake to chase a dream
tasting the air you're breathing in
I hope I won't forget a thing

promise to hold you close and pray
watching the fantasies decay
nothing will ever stay the same

and all of the love we threw away
and all of the hopes we've cherished fade
making the same mistakes again
making the same mistakes again

and I feel my world crumbling,
and I feel my life crumbling down,
I can feel my soul crumbling away,
and falling away,
falling away with you

all of the love we left behind
watching the flash backs intertwine
memories I will never find
memories I will never find

Thanks to the below fanvid I cannot separate GinRan from "Open Your Eyes" by Snow Patrol. It's not even Gin's literal habit of keeping his eyes hidden, it's his deliberate moral blindness and Rangiku's anger and weariness post-betrayal.





All this feels strange and untrue
And I won't waste a minute without you
My bones ache, my skin feels cold
And I'm getting so tired and so old

The anger swells in my guts
And I won't feel these slices and cuts
I want so much to open your eyes
'Cause I need you to look into mine

Tell me that you'll open your eyes

Rukia is definitely this:

"Stand in the Rain" by Superchick
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBp86atA_wQ

She never slows down.
She doesn't know why but she knows that when she's all alone, feels like its all coming down
She won't turn around
The shadows are long and she fears if she cries that first tear, the tears will not stop raining down

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

She won't make a sound
Alone in this fight with herself and the fears whispering if she stands she'll fall down
She wants to be found
The only way out is through everything she's running from wants to give up and lie down.

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
Stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found

[CHORUS]
So stand in the rain
Stand your ground
Stand up when it's all crashing down
You stand through the pain
You won't drown
And one day, whats lost can be found
You stand in the rain

Oh! That's beautiful--definately worthy of describing Rukia. ^_^
