The Gang of Five
It is quite fitting that the sweltering hot days of July arrive right when the gang confront the barrens of the Mysterious Beyond in the fifth film showcase.  It is almost like us admins planned it that way or something.  :bestsharptooth

This month in the Monthly Showcase we are featuring the Land Before Time V.  Feel free to share your thoughts and opinions in that topic.  Additionally, there is a new fanfiction prompt challenge for the months of June July, please check out this topic for more information.

Songs that fit the characters

Sinse when did it become a crime for others to talk about Pterano so much, or anyone else for that matter?  They are free to their opinions and likes, even if you disagree.  Trying to push your views onto others and try to make them shut up on their views isn't going to gain you much favor on the GOF or even in the real world for that matter.

Back on topic.  I have a few to list:

*"The Reason" by Hoobastank fits Cera, because of her complex character.  It seems she continues to try to find herself, and I believe if we were to see the Gang grow older, she would be a better natured person because she would have found her reason by then, and the reason is her loved ones.

*"Nothing Else Matters" by Metallica fits Littlefoot, because of his tendency to be a leader.  The song basically says to forever trust in who you are and nothing else matters, and it takes confidence to lead.

*"Sing" by My Chemical Romance fits Ducky, because she still has yet to become fully assertive and stick up for herself.  Like Cera, I think she would change as she got older and and stand her ground more.

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.

Glad I'm not the only one 2 notice that! Anyways, I'll be thinking of my favorite member of the gang whenever I hear this song again.  ;) By the way, I actually played it down at the old folks home last summer on the piano. It's something I've been doing for nearly a decade now, and am gonna be in my 7th ajudication this march!

Yes, I know it's off topic but I couldn't resist.  :D


And 1 more thing: Spike does sound like Satchmo during his "Ba-ba-ba" solo in 6 and in his thoughts, but his actual talking voice we heard in movie 4 was...uh, like the aflac duck, as tv tropes puts it!  :lol

Count On Me-Default: Pterano could sing that to his beloved Devon. :DD
Petra is a variant of the Greek name "Petros" meaning "strong" or "rock." Andi is a variant of the Greek name "Andy" meaning "masculine" or "brave." Therefore, I am tremendously brave and strong! :lol

For Petrie - Learn to Fly by the Foo Fighters. I feel like this especially fits Petrie during the first movie.

For Pterano - Go the Distance from the Disney movie Hercules. Why? Because it talks about how the character wants more than the average normal life.

From the sounds of it, it sure does!  :)  Petrie was my favorite of the gang in the first movie, by the way!  :)

Oi, the songs Titanium (David Guetta) It's Time (Imagine Dragons), and Boulevard of Broken Dreams (Green Day) fit Pterano for some reason, I think:

You shoot me down, but I won't fall, I'm Titanium
-- like how his ideas just so often fail, but he's not gonna give up

It's time to begin, isn;t it, I get a little bit bigger but then, I'll admit, I'm just the same as I was...
-- Admitting he goes a bit overboard, but he's unchanged ;)

My shadow's the only one beside me, my shallow heart's the only thing that's beating, sometimes I wish someone out there qwould find me, Till then I walk alone
-- Basically, he's owning up to the fact that he's an outlaw until... well, someone looks at him differently

I know, corny...

for Littlefoot, I'd say the Beib's song Never Say Never fits ;)

This topic may be two years old but I've been wanting to post my thoughts on a certain song with Pterano. I will get to the other dino characters as well XD. He's just so easy to find songs for.

Not one of Us From Lion King 2

It reminds me of how a lot of the herd probably feel about him.


Deception (An outrage!) He manipulated his own nephew to get info on the Stone and all his promises of a better life for the herd led to their death.
(He can't change his stripes) As Grandpa Longneck said he was up to his old tricks again.
Disgrace (For shame!)
(You know these Outsider types) He's not really popular among the group and was kicked out.

He asked for trouble the moment he came  
(See you later, agitator!)

Let him run
Let him live
But do not forget what we cannot forgive( I don' think they'll forgive what happened to the other herd )

And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us
Not our kind

Someone once lied to us
Now we're not so blind
For we knew he would do what he's done
And we know that he'll never be one of us

I just think it fits perfectly Xd

I also think the song We Are by Anna Johnson fits him as well.

We Are"

See the devil on the doorstep now (my oh my)
Telling everybody oh just how to live their lives (Pterano telling the other herd where he think they should go.)
Sliding down the information highway
Buying in just like a bunch of fools (The herd foolishy believes him.)
Time is ticking and we can't go back (my oh my)

What about the world today
What about the place that we call home
We’ve never been so many
And we've never been so alone

[Chorus]
You keep watching from your picket fence
You keep talking but it makes no sense
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are
You wash your hands and come out clean (Pterano still believes he's the hope for a better future and didn't take responsibility for what happened to he herd.)
Fail to recognize the enemies within
You say we're not responsible
But we are, we are, we are, we are

One step forward making two steps back (my oh my)
Riding piggy on the bad boys back for life
Lining up for the grand illusion
No answers for no questions asked
Lining up for the execution (This part makes me think of the herd during the sharpteeth attack)
Without knowing why

It’s all about power then (Pterano wanting to gain some magical power from the stone)
Take control
Breaking the rule
Breaking the soul
They suck us dry till there’s nothing left
My oh my, my oh my

Here's the song
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yQKpPpiI6Wg

I just found this one so I won't go into much detail but I feel it could practically be his theme song.

"Playing God" by Anna Johnson
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7Xwgg6MEyo

Lights out, you stole the show
Time's up, you're good to go
The truth won't be unspoken
How do you breathe?

What does it feel like?
When life's in your hands
The craving for power
Has gone to your head
What does it feel like
To feel nothing at all
Is it your call
To be playing God

Cry all the tears they've cried
Dream all the dreams that died
How do you face his father?
How do you breathe?

What does it feel like?
When life's in your hands
The craving for power
Has gone to your head
What does it feel like
To feel nothing at all
Is it your call
To be playing God

Remember what your mother said
Boy, you better make amends
Cos no one gets away in the end
Playing God
How do you breathe?

What does it feel like...

Now for the other dinos

Littlefoot about his mother in the first movie

She Is the Sunlight by Trading Yesterday
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkCAR7xQoaI

I think it fits pretty well particuallry these lines

And if loving her is
Is a heartache for me
And if holding her means
I have to bleed
Then I am the martyr
Love is to blame
She is the healing
And I the pain


She lives in a daydream
I don't belong(Her talk to him about the Great Valley)
She is the sunlight
the sun is gone

I kind of think Nobodys Home by Avril could fit Cera since she seems to hide some of her feelings in a mask of rudeness but has a softer side,  and also Give me What I Want her snobby attitude and Freak Out due to her stubborn wont take no crap from no one like ways.

Hmm, I sort of see colors when I hear songs...I DEFINITELY don't see purple with that one (Spike's vision color).

Also, what most people seem to forget is Spike doesn't sound remotely like Satchmo...the one time he talks  :spit

Here is a super original choice for Sharptooth that totally hasn't been done to death.

I love the Yellow Bellies.
