Soundtracks accidental, serendipitous and contrived... To be added to as the fancy strikes me.
Kenshin canon Era (Lucio Battisti) This song is old! Did you know? I listened to it for years before I ever looked it up. -
modern-times AU Maybe Sprout Wings (The Mountain Goats) -
Cyberpunk Kenshin "Blades of Blood," "Witchy Woman" (Vathara) Wires (Athlete) 88 downloads? Someone really likes this song. Or maybe you agree cyberpunk Kenshin is delicious.
→fanart for "Witchy Woman"
-
Kingdom Hearts Axel Returning to the Fold (The Thermals) The vast majority of Thermals songs are basically written for Organization XIII -
Sora ++ Stamp (Nishino Kana)
Deep in Your Heart (Doumoto Kouichi)
"Stamp" is clearly Sora+Roxas. "Deep in Your Heart" is Sora+Everyone! Especially Riku. -
Vagrant Story Ashley + Sydney Wood (Second Person) I basically just loop this while I'm playing the game now -
FF7 canon Unless It's Kicks (Okkervil River)
To The Sky (Maps)
One of these broke my heart. Wry u do that, Okkervil River, wry? -
fanon (Particularly fics by ciceqi) Core and Rind (Andrew Bird) Seph on lead vocals and guitar, Cloud on guitar, Zack on drums, Reno on keyboard, Rude on bass, everyone on backup vocals! -
Gundam Wing canon Here's Your Future (The Thermals)
I Let It Go (The Thermals)
The rest of Thermals songs are written for GW -
"Freeport" (Maldoror) St. Rosa and the Swallows (The Thermals) Duo sings most songs for the GW boys, but this song is for himself -
"The Arrangement" (Maldoror) To Destruction (Dolorean) →lyrics I love Wufei so much -
01x02 Half Life (Imogen Heap)
How We Fade (The Thermals)
Damn, and I don't even like this aspect of this pairing! Imogen Heap is made of shiny.
"How We Fade" could work in a zillion places, but 01x02 deserve kickass, so it goes here.
-
01 Pulverized (Calla) I knew there was something Heero would sing! Probably! -
05x01 A Stare Like Yours (The Thermals) All Thermals, all the time~
This song would work for 05x02 too, but I say the surly pair gets it.
-
psycho 02 For Real (Okkervil River) Ah, the hallowed and venerable "Psycho Duo" subgenre. What, you say? You need an introduction?

I only recently started listening to this album (Black Sheep Boy) with full attention and @_@ I now realize this is just the most obviously crazy psycho song on it. (Yes, I thought "A Glow" was sappy romance for years!)
-
02+05 Bastard (Ben Folds) Working on fic for this. Nothin' more to say! -
03 Let Your Earth Quake, Baby (The Thermals) Sorry Trowa... But I'd love to read this story. -
04 Black Sheep Boy (Okkervil River) This song in this context feeds the bunnies so bad... -
05 Help, I'm Alive (Metric) Am I crazy, picking this for Wufei? Yes. But this is pretty much the Ita Vero theme song. (And Ita will get its own soundtrack post, someday) -
Gurren Lagann canon Chances (John Frusciante)
Spirals (Adem)
-
szzzt fics Shipverse ("Highwind") Scarecrow (The Pillows)
Down to Your Soul (Right Away, Great Captain!) →fic
-
"Made Man" Anthem for the Already Defeated (Rock Plaza Central)
We Will Rock You (Max Raabe & Palast Orchester)
Graceful Ghost Rag (Tom Constanten)
"We Will Rock You" now in the high quality version! -

So, sometimes I translate songs for fun. This time it was from English to Japanese, so that I could sing this song TWICE AS MUCH.

The strongest requirement is that the song be just as singable in its new form. Rhyming is not required in Japanese, but I tend to make it happen by accident.

"To Destruction" (Delorean)"

On the way
On the way down to destruction
There are places where I find my rest
Make no mistake
Make no mistake of my intention
Your arms are the place I like the best
「道のり」

道のり
破壊への道のりで
休むところもある
誤るな
俺のつもり間違えんな
好きのは君の腕の中
I cannot lie
To your face
Your lips, your skin, your hips, or your waist
I do not dare
Journey there
When I do I have found no means of escape
君の面前に
うそが出来ない
唇 ふるえる肌 腰に
旅立ち
恐ろしい
近づくと帰る道など無い
On the way
On the way down to destruction
There are places where I find my rest
Make no mistake
Make no mistake of my intention
Your arms are the place I like the best
道のり
破壊への道のりで
休むところもある
誤るな
俺のつもり間違えんな
好きのは君の腕の中
I have tried
To run away
But I am so unhappy when I am alone
So here we lie
Another night
I am a fool when I walk back through your door

[chorus to end]
逃げ出そう
ともした けど
独りでいるのが苦手
また今夜
一緒に居る
敷居またぐ愚か者同士

(コーラスもう一回だけ)


Not sure of the last line. Still in flux. I like 敷居またぐ, but how to properly fit "I am a fool" in?
