Theme song for the collective movement to save CoH?
« on: September 09, 2012, 02:11:31 am »
Occurred to me that perhaps, we need a song that not only drives us to victory, but keeps our hopes up....

To that end, let's drop some suggestions here, along with vids of said song!

This song, despite its Japanese language(but thank goodness for subtitles), has spoken to me for years, long after it's early 90's debut....  :)

 'Say Yes!' from the original Bubblegum Crisis anime series!   8)

=edit=

A live, full-length version of the song is here....

I'd actually suggest this:

   Because for me, this whole situation brings this scene to mind:

   Hello, we're the City of Heroes.   Basically, Run!

Perhaps this is obvious, but I wanted to toss it out there:

This would be my vote too.

The goodness doesn't start until 50 seconds in (hey, I didn't make the video but it's still a classic). But this pretty much sums up where I am right now. Also shades of The Master Plan scene from "Iron Eagle"...

While Bonnie Tyler does bring that little feel for me, I was thinking:

although, I do use this theme for one of my heroes, and it fits as well:

Um.  I really like Viridian's pick -- Save the World, by Sweedish House Mafia.  It's upbeat, catchy, and the lyrics are close to perfect.

I love this song and the beauty part is that it's very very well known, so even non-nerds can get behind it.

There's a three options I can think of off the top of my head that would be more than suitable.

First off:

Secondly:

And, of course:

I recall a while back some player created a great COH montage to this song:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fwJazZIWNgg

I can't seem to find it on YouTube right now... but it was pretty cool when I first saw it. :)

I changed the words...

Done to the tune of "We Built This City"


We built this city, we built this city on fun and friends
Built this city, we built this city on fun and friends

You might not know me or recognize my face
But we all care who goes to that place
Knee deep in the villains enjoying the fight
Now the bad news eating up the night

Someone always playing corporation games
Who cares they're always changing corporation names
We just want to play here... someone stole the stage
They call us unimportant.. write us off the page

You play your hero, listen for the glowies, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on fun and friends

 It's just another Sunday, on a King's Row street
CEO's have got the choke hold, oh then we just lost the beat

Who counts the money underneath the bar
Who rides the wrecking ball in to our avatars
Don't tell us you need us, 'cos we're not a bunch of sheep
Looking for Paragon, cause love of the game runs deep

(I'm looking out over that IP bridge
Out on another gorgeous sunny Saturday, watching the Tsoo and Family)

Don't you remember the fun?

(It's your favorite game, in your favorite game world
The city by the statue, the city that rocks, the city that never sleeps)

Boombox rocks the music, do the monkey dance, don't you remember
We built this city, we built this city on fun and friends

We built this city, we built this city on fun and friends
Built this city, we built this city on fun and friends
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

In the spirit of changing words...

Sung to the tune of "Defying Gravity" (from the Wicked soundtrack):

Something has changed within us.
Something is not the same.
We're not okay with someone threatening our beloved game.

Too late for second guesses.
Too late to find something else.
It's time to rally forces,
Raise our voices and yell.

It's time to try...defying gravity.
I think we'll try.... defying gravity.
And they can't bring us down.

We're through accepting choices
'cuz someone says they're so.
Some things we cannot change.
But 'til we try, we'll never know.

Too long we've formed our friendships,
made our bonds, and helped our cause.
Well, if they think we'll fade out quietly,
they'll be the ones at loss.

It's time we try defying gravity.
Take up our capes, defying gravity.
I'd sooner buy defying gravity.
And they can't pull us down.

Look at us now defying gravity.
We'll show 'em how we're defying gravity.
They once allowed us to defy the gravity.
No chance they'll hold us down.

So if you want to find us?
Look over Atlas skies!
For over eight years they've taught us
Everyone
deserves
a
chance
to fly!

They'll think we're flying solo.
But no, we're flying strong!
To those who'd stop us?
We'll show them they're so wrong!

It's now our TIME for defying GRAVITY!
What we do BEST is defying GRAVITY!
Hardly SUBLIME for defying GRAVITY
And they can't bring us down.

Hold us down?
Nooooooooo!

I'm very partial to Bonnie Tyler, but I vote for this as our action song. Could be because I'm hungry, though...

All great suggestions. I'll throw in a couple from entirely different genres, just because I can, not because I expect anybody but me to like 'em. (wink)

"Nobody's Hero" by Rush

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8JxU0rLTl8

I'll admit the thing I really like about this song for Paragon City's situation is the line in the refrain

"When I heard that you were gone
I felt a shadow cross my heart"

-----

"No High Ground" by Leslie Fish (darn it, can't find a link anywhere. Probably too confrontational anyway.)

(lyrics only)
http://www.lyricsmuse.com/tracks/leslie-fish-no-high-ground

"Ain't no freedom here, not unless you take it.
 Ain't no justice here, unless you make it all."

-----

Hard to argue with Jacknomind, though. Viridian's pick is awfully good, though I prefer this video

Superdogs FTW!

Personnally I can't think of any. I have atlas park's music in my head whenever I think about our actions.
Les Gardiens de l'Equilibre / Les Traqueurs de Chaos / Les Disciples de l'Equilbre
