Character theme songs

I like this game. If there is a song that you now associate with your character, or a plotline of your character, post it here. :slight_smile:

Jack and Lily were initially inspired by this song. But I’ll have to think about where Lily is now.

What Jack became after losing Lily and his hand was inspired by this Nick Cave song.

Hearing this New Model Army song today, though the circumstances described in the song are different, it accurately captures how Jacks feels now.

In fact, if you changed lines three, four & five to something slightly more appropriate, the whole of verse one would be perfect! I may have to do that…

Thanks to a druinken comment by a Gypsy all I can think of for Jane is Postman Pat. Which has way too much nostogia attached to it for me to want to associate it with a Demon apocolypse! ?

…a tad err… inappropriate. But it’s what google told me. :smiling_imp: (don’t actually follow that link)


Mr Postman - The beetles
Postcard - The Who
Letter From Home - John Michael Montgomery
Letter to Hermione - David Bowie

I Won’t Back Down - Tom Petty

Of course it doesn’t actually need to be about mail. :wink:

Agnes Fletcher was partly based on the song “The Curse of Millhaven” by Nick Cave.

Thank you for those… interesting suggestions. (Didn’t follow your advice about the first link)


I so got red right hand when I noticed Frank’s hand. Good work!

Seven Devils by Florence and the Machine is resonating a bit right now,

For Esther- ‘My Family’s Role in the World Revolution’, by Beirut. No lyrics, but it starts off feeling tense and hurried but gives way to underlying moments of hope and carries a strong sensation of wanting to Get Things Done.

For the entire game,‘Sons and Daughters’ by The Decemberists.

Death Cab For Cutie - I Will Follow You Into The Dark

I heard a few songs in my ear this morning, and thought they might be appropriate for certain things. For those sad brides & grooms we had, I thought Springsteen’s Brilliant Disguise would fit. Because, y’know, sociopaths & gypsies:

We stood at the altar, the gypsy swore our future was bright
But come the wee wee hours, well maybe, baby, the gypsy lied
So when you look at me, you better look hard and look twice
Is that me, baby, or just a brilliant disguise?

Given Lily saved Jack a couple of times, I think Simple Mind’s Alive & Kicking would work for Jack’s thoughts after her heroic rescues, mainly
because of this little bit near the end :

What you gonna do when things go wrong?
What you gonna do when it all cracks up?
What you gonna do when the Love burns down?
What you gonna do when the flames go up?
Who is gonna come and turn the tide?
What’s it gonna take to make a dream survive?
Who’s got the touch to calm the storm inside?
Don’t say goodbye, Don’t say goodbye
In the final seconds who’s gonna save you?

The references to flames and tides are especially appropriate given tides of demons & zombies; and the “Who’s got the touch to calm the storm inside?” nicely references the exorcism ritual that Lily performed circling round Jack after rescuing him form the demons.

I know, I’m a sad individual, living vicariously thru my character. Luckily, round here that ain’t too uncommon! :slight_smile:


‘Colour In Your Cheeks’ by The Mountain Goats for the gypsies:

For the Demons! KMFDM’s Juke Joint Jezebel. Because the lyrics!

‘Adventure!’ by Be Your Own Pet has been running through my head while plotting out Esther and Arty’s jaunt through the continent.
