Yarr yarr pirates.
Hello, music lovers! I've created the latest music-sharing post over at sexy_mood_music. You don't have to join to contribute links because the post will be left open all month till the next one goes up. However, you're more than free to join and have a look around at the other stuff offered at the comm, including all manner of graphics.Throughout March, we'd like you to share various tunes that you think "fits a certain fandom [either because of the lyrics, mood/tone, instruments used, etc.] although the song hasn't actually been used in the fandom before." Is that creative or what? I know we've all got tons of different shows, movies, and books that we adore and with which we associate different beloved tunes, so please share as many as you can think of. Of course, any and all genres can be included, and if you have anecdotes relating to your song selections, we'd love to hear those, too!
[Remember to change 'hxxp' to 'http' for each link!]
Here's what I uploaded for March's entry:
Ben Lee - Catch My Disease -- I associate this one with Parks and Recreation cuz it's so chipper and quirky just like Leslie Knope and Andy! I feel it really captures the offbeat nature of the show, overall.
Death Cab For Cutie - Someday You Will Be Loved -- This song calls to mind the haunting and dark Dexter Morgan, who's in search of someone who will love him even if he's a sociopathic monster.
Ke$ha - We R Who We R -- This song just screams Skins to me though I'll admit that I've never watched anything beyond S1 of the original UK version. The characters partied pretty hard, and Tony had that "don't give a fuck" attitude.
Kings of Leon - Crawl -- The sexy, driving beat to this one evokes visions of vampires. It would be perfectly suited for the dark and daring characters of Damon Salvatore on Vampire Diaries or Eric Northman on True Blood!
Santogold - Creator -- When I hear this tune and think of fandoms, The Social Network now comes to mind. For one thing, the whole movie is about who created Facebook, and the song's glitzy, frenetic beat reminds me of the second half of the film when Mark Zuckerberg begins hanging with Sean Parker and is thrust into the public spotlight.
