K I thought for all of 30 seconds about resurrecting the old thread for this, but then decided not to since it was more than 2 years old. Can it be that RPGs have been lacking the gift of music for that long?! SHAMEFUL!

Anyway, lots of people as a rule now tend to add a character theme song to their sign ups, so why not post them here to share them with all of us? This is also where you can post the theme songs for an entire rpg, or maybe just one post in the rpg, since some people (myself included) may listen to a certain song or type of music to get into the groove of writing for a particular part.
Now on to the form ( (c) Roy Karrde, from the old thread. If your not cool with me using it let me know and Ill make up my own ;D)

Form:
RPG Name: * Must provide a link to the RPG *
Character Name/Specific Post: * If the song is for a certain character, give their name and a link to their sign-up; if it's a Specific Post, link to the topic or the particular post; if it’s for an RPG in general, leave this blank *
Song or Poem: * If you want provide a link to lyrics, if not you can list the song or post the lyrics here to the poem or song that you feel goes along with it *
Reason: * Do you have a specific reason in choosing this song? *
Other: * Just incase I missed something *

And the reason why I spent my time looking for the old one:

RPG Name: Time after Time: The Lost Ones (http://pokemasters.net/forums/showthread.php?t=18519)

Song or Poem:
Under the great north star
Try to work out where you are
In the silence of the sea
I don't know where I've been

In the future, in the past
Going nowhere much too fast
When I go there go with me
When I go there go with me

'Cause I don't know where I'm going but I wanna talk
I feel like I'm going where I've been before
And I wanna talk

Take a picture of
Something that you're not sure of
Bring it back to show me
But I don't know what I see

In the future, find a home
Getting nowhere on your own
Got to find your missing piece

'Cause you don't know where you're going but you wanna talk
You feel like you're going where you've been before
And nothing's really making any sense at all
You'll tell any one who'll listen that you feel ignored
Let's talk, let's talk
Do you wanna talk?

I'm up in the part of the throne
I'm trying to sing a song
In a language I don't speak
I try but I can't get through
I'm trying to get to you
But you're difficult to reach

Won't you talk to me...

So you don't know where you're going but you wanna talk
You feel like you're going where you've been before

Let's talk, let's talk...
Let's talk, let's talk...

Reason: It fits PERFECTLY with the overall RPG. The RPG basically revolves around events of the past circling back around to mirror the characters future, and when they "go where they feel like theyve been before" they actually have never been but it feels like home. Also the way the music sounds has this RPGs sort of feel, I <3 it :D

RPG Name: Dragonball: Spirit Unleashed
Song or Poem: DragonballZ Budokai 3 Theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSpp-yvYKGA)
Reason: It rocks tits and it's one of the best Dragonball themes evar.

I don't really have any songs for RPGs specifically, but I have playlists for certian characters.

RPG Name: FFDD
Character Name: Shayna
Song or Poem: Timorous Me by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. Lyrics. (http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Timorous-Me-lyrics-Ted-Leo-The-Pharmacists/3A2E2B889A99FD9948256DF1001515B2) Song. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P0vgZPd0Bsg) (the video isn't official, but it's the only non-live version of the song and it's pretty funny XP)
Reason: It pretty much describes her relationship with most people, specifically the friends she went to Ivalice with in the first place. This part in particular:
Now I donít ever see Johnathan no more,
But my life rolls on just like it did before,
And I only wonder what it is
That I even miss him for.
I dunno, it just kinda sets out her attitude towards people. Hopefully, that will change :3
Other: No other, damnit! D:

RPG Name: It still sucks to be us.
Character Name/Specific Post: Meiya
Song or Poem: Poison by Groove Coverage (tis a cover of Alice Cooper). Lyrics. (http://www.sing365.com/music/lyric.nsf/Poison-lyrics-Groove-Coverage/53B430D9B6FFF78B48256E29002EAC38) Song. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50DLM_jOPYY)
Reason: Again, pretty much describes what she's like. Also slightly related to Of Magicken, since I planned to use her for Jenn's RPG version. Still fits her perfectly though :3
Other: *pop*

I'll share some more another time, Meiya has a lot more songs than this... Working on Yuki also :3
