Songs that fit the characters
« on: June 23, 2011, 02:51:57 pm »
This was something I touched on while on my way to work today. I was listening to a bunch of songs on my ipod, and I started thinking, what songs that I know would describe each character in LBT? That aren't related to LBT already?

Here are the ones I got so far:

Spike- What a Wonderful World, by Louis Armstrong. This is for 2 big reasons. First of all, the lyrics of the song basically reflect Spike's worldview, where everything is pleasant and pretty, days are relaxed, and life is generally good. The other reason is a bit more obvious: Spike sounds just like Louis Armstrong.

Littlefoot- Who Says You Can't Go Home, by Bon Jovi. This is another favourite of mine, and it reflects a real mood for adventure and travel, going off on great journeys. But it also muses on how no matter where the vocalist ends up, his home is always the same. Here are a few lyrics that really matched his personality:

"Every step I take,
I know that I'm not alone
You take the home from the boy,
but not the boy from his home."

 "Who says you can't go home?
There's only one place where they call me one of their own,
Just a hometown boy, born a rolling stone."

Cera- Strange Things, by Randy Newman. This song is basically about a secure and confident protagonist becoming challenged by a flashy newcomer (Part of the soundtrack for Toy Story). It basically reflects her feelings towards any newcomer, be it Mo, Ali or Tricia. She always becomes jealous and insecure when someone new steals the spotlight from her.

Eh, why not?

Littlefoot - My Immortal by Evanescence. It really seems to fit him, in the first movie at least. How he can't let the memory of his mother go and how it kind of "haunts" him in the back of his mind and always keeps coming back to him. It's also pretty gloomy, like the atmosphere of the first movie.

Yeah, I had one for Cera but then I lost it. :p

Pieces-Sum 41 fits Pterano perfectly. Read the lyrics below and it'll explain everything.

I tried to be perfect
But nothing was worth it
I don't believe it makes me real
I thought it'd be easy
But no one believes me
I meant all the things I said

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

This place is so empty
My thoughts are so tempting
I don't know how it got so bad
Sometimes it's so crazy
That nothing can save me
But it's the only thing that I have

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

On my own

I tried to be perfect
It just wasn't worth it
Nothing could ever be so wrong
It's hard to believe me
It never gets easy
I guess I knew that all along

If you believe it's in my soul
I'd say all the words that I know
Just to see if it would show
That I'm trying to let you know
That I'm better off on my own

If Pterano wrote a song, it would be quite similar to this, don't you think? :lol

Here's the song if ya wanna hear it. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&...fGkC9rmrwUVYEIw

It's funny, there's a Pterano tribute with this song as well. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvPoFV6Q1BA

Cera - The Best Damn Thing by Avril Lavigne.  Yayz! I got it back. So, I was just listening to the song and then I realized, "Hey, this fits Cera pretty well." I got into the lyrics and realized, yeah, it fits. The reason I think it does is because she's always talking about how she'll be able to do things so much better than they others and how she isn't scared of anything. Basically, she's herself, and she's saying that she's the best.

Littlefoot's mom: If We Hold On Together. I remember as a child, I used to think she sung it.  :slap  :lol . The song does fit her.

found another Pterano song. "Paradise Lost" - Symphony X.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyvOJlX4ZkE

In the cold misty morning
 gleaming rays awake the dawn
 Here I stand - a stranger in this land
 does your conscience betray you?
 falling from grace -
 feel the sun on my face
 does desire still hold true?
 
Mystified by her beauty -
 does the hunter pity his prey?
 Under starless skies all
 Love must die and fade away
 
Take my hand - divine or damned
 Make a stand, seize the day
 Yours or mine, damned of divine
 Draw the line, come what may...
 
Looking down from ethereal skies
 Silent crystalline tears I cry
 For all must say their last goodbye -
 to Paradise
 
My yearning is silenced by angelic skin of white
 Love conquers all for heaven's fall
 this faithful night.
 Yours or mine - damned of divine
 Draw the line - serpentine...
 
Love is a tragedy
 all that I have, all that I'll ever need
 is right here inside
 Let the winds of freedom be my guide
 
Looking down from Ethereal Skies
 Silent crystalline tears I cry
 For all must say their last goodbye -
 to Paradise
 
Looking down from Ethereal Skies
 Silent crystalline tears I cry
 For all must say their last goodbye -
 to Paradise
 Say goodbye, goodbye, hold on!
 
...so I've cheated and I've lied
 been the victim of foolish pride
 and I've begged and I've crawled
 and I've battled and bled for it all
 now I'll savor the downfall...
 of Paradise
 
Looking down from Ethereal Skies
 Silent crystalline tears I cry
 For all will say their last goodbye
 to Paradise

and heres another one.

Run the World (Girls) - Beyonce

Flyers, we run this motha (yeah!) x4
 FLYERS!
 
Who run the world? Flyers! x4
 Who run this motha? Flyers! x4
 Who run the world? Flyers! x4
 
[Beyonce - Verse 1]
 
Some of them men think they freak this like we do
 But no they don't
 Make your cheques come at they neck,
 Disrespect us no they won't
 
Boy don't even try to touch this
 Boy this beat is crazy
 This is how they made me
 Houston, Texas baby
 This goes out to all my girls
 That's in the club rocking the latest
 Who will buy it for themselves and get more money later
 
I think I need a barber
 None of these ** can fade me
 Im so good with this,
 I remind you im so hood with this
 
Boy im just playing, come here baby
 Hope you still like me, ** pay me
 My persuasion can build a nation
 Endless power, our love we can devour
 You'll do anything for me
 
[Chorus]
 
Who run the world? Flyers! x4
 Who run this motha? Flyers! x4
 Who run the world? Flyers! x4
 
[Beyonce - Verse 2]
 
It's hot up in here
 DJ don't be scared to run this, run this back
 I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world
 Have me raise a glass for the college grads
 
Anyone rolling I'll let you know what time it is
 You can't hold me
 I broke my 9 to 5 and copped my cheque

 This goes out to all the women getting it in,
 Get on your grind
 To the other men that respect what I do
 Please accept my shine
 
Boy you know you love it
 How we're smart enough to make these millions
 Strong enough to bare the children
 Then get back to business
 See, you better not play me
 Don't come here baby
 Hope you still like me
 ** pay me!
 
[Bridge]
 
My persuasion can build a nation
 Endless power
 Our love we can devour
 You'll do anything for me
 
[Chorus]
 
Who run the world? Flyers!
 Who run this motha? Flyers!
 Who run the world? Flyers!
 
Who are we?
 What we run?
 The world!
 
(Who run this motha?)
 
Who are we?
 What we run?
 The world!
 
(Who run this motha?)
 
Who are we?
 What do we run?
 We run the world!
 
(Who run this motha?)
 
Who are we?
 What we run?
 We run the world!
 
Who run the world? FLYERS!!!!

LOL, nicely done. Though I do find it kinda funny how you chose Paradise Lost by Symphony X, since that's the title track from an album where every song is sung fro the point of view of Lucifer himself.

Here's one for Pterano's megalomaniacal egotistical side:

I`m the biggest, I`m the best
I`m better than the rest
I`m bad, I`m worst, I rule
I`m better than the rest

I`m a sinner, I`m a saint
I`m tough not faint
I`m smart, I`m rough so cool
I`m better than the rest

A perfect, a perfect day

Welcome to a perfect day, a perfect place to be
All the best that life can give, is not good enough for me
Welcome to a perfect time, a perfect unity
The best is only good enough, good enough for me

I`m sexy, I`m hot
I`m right on the spot
I`m clever, however, I`m cool
I`m better than the rest

I`m a rebel, a rocker
A  bloody motherf*cker
I`m hard as a rock, so rude
I`m better than the rest

A perfect, a perfect day

Welcome to a perfect day, a perfect place to be
All the best that life can give, is not good enough for me
Welcome to a perfect time, a perfect unity
The best is only good enough, good enough for me

Welcome, welcome to the joy of life


And here's one from the same band, that's basically spot on with the Gang's schmalzy, cliche team-ethic:

Carry on, carry on
The chanting has begun
A hymn of fame and glory – forever
And ride on, ride on
In union we are strong
A symphony for freedom and glory

We are strangers in a strange land
We are born as renegades
And show the world what they should see
When we are standing at the crossroads
Revolution is our way
We’re breaking down the walls of hate

Carry on, carry on
The chanting has begun
A hymn of fame and glory – forever
And ride on, ride on
In union we are strong
A symphony for freedom and glory

We are guardians of the future
Defenders of our faith
And we are bound for victory
When our hearts call for rebellion
We’re raising our hands up to the sky
And tell the world to turn away from darkness

Carry on, carry on
The chanting has begun
A hymn of fame and glory – forever
And ride on, ride on
In union we are strong
A symphony for freedom and glory

Both are by Freedom Call, a German power-metal band (Big surprise). The first is called A Perfect Day, and the other is called Carry On, probably one of my favourite of their songs. Just big, anthemic, and corny as hell!

"Standing Tough" totally fits Kron from "Dinosaur" (I know, not an LBT character, but I just thought I'd mention it)

Pterano and Devon. (Not really an LBT character, but he is mine. MY FISHY!!! MIIIINE!!!!  :lol ) We Are One-12 Stones. It's the PERFECT song for them!

We are one
 We are one
 We are one
 We will stand together
 Number one
 Number one
 The chosen ones
 We are one
 We are one
 We will fight forever
 We are one and we won't tire
 
That verse was like made for them, duuuude.  :lol

Fires At Midnight by Blackmore's Night(Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JWvrqqC_I4&feature=related )  fits Grandma Longneck quite well(it also fits the matriarch from the 4th film).


"I stood out here once before
With my head held in my hands
For all that I had known of this place
I could never understand…

On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
The stars are out and magic is here…

I wished on the seven sisters
Bring to me wisdom of  age
All that's locked within the book of secrets
I longed for the knowledge of a sage…

On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out the magic is here
The stars are out the magic is here…

So, the sisters smiled to themselves
And they whispered as they shone
And it was from that very instant
I knew I would never be alone…

While on the hills
The fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burned at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
The stars are out and the magic is here…
Many stars were forgotten
Many faded and became ghosts
Still my sisters glittered down from heaven
Always there when I needed them most…

And on the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
The stars are out and magic is here…

I stood here once before
With my head in my hands
For all that I had known of this place
I could never understand

On the hills the fires burned at midnight
Superstition plagued the air
Sparks fly as the fires burn at midnight
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here
Stars are out and magic is here"
"As long as humans continue to be the ruthless destroyer of other living beings, we will never know health or peace. For as long as people massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, those who sow the seed of murder and pain will never reap joy or love." - Pythagoras of Samos

"Gaia, the beautiful, rose up, broad blossomed, she that is the steadfast base of all things. And fair Gaia first bore the starry cosmos, equal to herself, to cover her on all sides and to be a home forever for the blessed Gods." - Hesiod

"Superman(It's not easy)", by Five for Fighting, sort of fits Doc. A lot of dinosaurs see him as a hero, but he simply sees himself as just another person (or dinosaur, in this case.) He's sort of equivalent to superman in the LBT universe  :lol:

Oh, and "If it makes you happy" by Sheryl Crow fits Littlefoot at the end of 1 because they've defeated Sharptooth and Petrie is alive but yet he's still miserable when he goes up tot the cliff. But in reality that scene does not take place after the defeat of Sharptooth at all, but after the fight with Cera, when he had legitimate reason to feel that way. I know, I'm as unhappy about the cuts and changes as anyone else on here is.   :(

We need to come up for songs for characters besides Terano, people, ok?
