The music survey
« on: February 03, 2014, 11:24:18 am »
Hey there,

After listening to Bonnie Tyler's famous 'holding out for a hero'.  I kinda wondered, is that the most epic action song ever.  I mean we were playing it on our heads while the teacher was doing articulations and annotations, etc, and it made it more interesting.  I honestly think that is the top action song ever.  But I wonder what everone else's is as well as other categories.  So for a survey (and maybe eventual competition) I want to allow everyone an opportunity to vote for 'BEST SONGS OF THE EMOTION'.  The categories are:

 - Best Action song (fight scenes, climax part of movies or highly physical/adventerous parts of films)
 - Best Romantic song (Intimate, Love and unrequited love scenes)
 - Best Music song (I'm actually going for songs that people can randomly and cheese burst into and get away with it)
 - Best Horror song (A song that can actually creep you out, if you listened to it in the dark)
 - Best Comedic song (A song to make you laugh)

There we go, our categories.

Best Actions -
Best Romance -
Best Musical -
Best Horror -
Best Comedic -

Idk if this counts but these songs aren't necessarily scene songs if you will but they're songs i can see these senarios playing out to.

Action: toss up between blow me away by breaking benjamin and disturbeds indestructible.

Romance: oddly enough i can see a romantic/ dramatic scene playing out to to breaking benjamins dance with the devil and evil angel.

Comedy: bird is the word............that is all

Musical: would either have to be rick astleys never gonna give you up or singing in the rain .

Horror: Probably has to be disturbeds into the night. and like i say get a little kid to sing twinkle twinkle little star in the right setting and you'll need. a new set of undies.
Great men are forged in fire, it is the privilege of lesser men to light the flame. (The real 9th doctor)

Though the morrow is barren of promise ,nothing shall forestall my return. (Genesis FFVII crisis core)

For these songs, it's less "movie scene" songs, more songs that provoke specific emotions.

Best Actions - "Cochise" by Audioslave.

Best Romance - Coldplay's "The Hardest Part"

Best Musical - Weezer's "Buddy Holly"

Best Horror - Ether "Climbing Op The Walls" by Radiohead, or "Applebite" by Soundgarden; I had a seriously awful nightmare to the later.

Best Comedic - "Paul Revere" by the Beastie Boys.
