Heh, since we're doing new lyrics, here's one I put on the CoH boards yesterday:

Save the City Maybe

Quote
I found the Incarnate Well
Don't ask me I'll never tell
I got a Midnighter spell
But it's go-ing away

I'd trade my IOs for a wish
Spent all my nickles on this
Wasn't looking to quit
But it's go-ing away

Paragon was holdin'
Fast snipe, things were fixing
Mot died, Hamidon's growing
Where you think you're going, baby?

Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my global
Save the city, maybe?

It's hard to not fight
with the villains
But here's my global
Save the city maybe?

And all the other games
Try to chase me
But here's my global,
Save the city, maybe?

I've got a Bots/Time mastermind
We'll group for Faathim the Kind
'cause Doctor Q is too much grind
But it's going away

I'll beg and sign and protest
That farewell post is a jest
I didn't know I'd be such a mess
It's all going away

We've all got to hold on
I'm sure, we can show 'em
We'll fight, Tweet and YouTube
Where you think you're going, baby?

Basically, all these are great music, it's impossible to choose. What we need to do, is make FMVs (Fan Music Videos) with all these great music and footage of the game or famous films and put them on the web with links to the petition and to the twitter feed. This will appeal to the fans of each music equally and make them support us.

Go make great videos !
Yeeessss....

OH MY GOD I WAS WRONG !

Listen to this: the lyrics and everything !! IT'S OUR STORY !

http://youtu.be/kfSSpkCoXxo

This is a fan girl resinging in english a japanese anime opening. So freaking spot-on it's frightening !

The lyrics:

Quote
Drowning in denial, they're racing through this city
Fighting for survival, an urban Serengeti
Slowly I awaken, and know that I can make it
Time to show the power that's burning like a fire deep in me

And somewhere there's got to be a reason
And it's something we all can believe in
From their birth people search until they've found it
Now the die is cast
And you can't turn back
You've got to reach for your dreams

I'm not afraid of failure or wounding my pride
And I'm not that strong but I know I'll survive
Had enough pretending, enough being weak
I will find my future, and I will succeed!
HERE WE GO! GO! Run like the wind and be proud
If you don't look back then you'll make it somehow
I've got faith in the person I am
GIVE A REASON FOR LIFE
And show them you can

Getting in touch with her so that I can make an inspirational video.
Yeeessss....

Yesterday I thought Black Tide's "Honest Eyes" was a good fit when I listened to it on itunes.

Dunno why. "Give me my, my life back" maybe? lol

Apparently it went well with Street Fighter X Tekken...

Honestly, a lot of these songs are great action-y type songs, but nothing captures the spirit of CoH to me more than the first thing you hear when you create a character for the first time: The Atlas Park theme.

An English-language version of the song I linked twice to also exists, from the little-known Dub of the series....

If we could find someone to re-sing it, I would INSIST on recording the new intro by the D.J.....  ;)

Personnally I can't think of any. I have atlas park's music in my head whenever I think about our actions.
This in all honesty, nothing I have heard since I first logged in brings to mind this game better.

As for the theme to our resistance:

All Ways Look on the Bright Side of Life (Monty Python et al).
Show Must Go On - Queen (especially last line: "I still love you...")
And dare I say it: We Are the Champions - Also by Queen... ;)

Queen? Did someone say Queen?
I can't think of anything more fitting than "The Hero" from the Flash Gordon soundtrack:

So you feel like you ain't nobody
Always needed to be somebody
Put your feet on the ground, put your hand on your heart
Lift your head to the stars and the world's for your taking

All you gotta do is save the world
Yeea-ah!

So you feel like it's the end of the story
Find it all pretty satisfactory
Well, I tell you my friend
This might seem like the end
But the continuation is yours for the making

Yes, you're a hero!
Ooh yeah!

The first verse pretty much describes why people play CoH in the first place... any regular guy or gal who wants to can be a superhero. The second verse covers our current situation (except for the part about "find(ing) it all pretty satisfactory".)

-C.C.

I vote Queen music if nothing else.

The Show Must Go On, or Flash Gordon would be perfect!

It's hard for me not to think about Higher Ground every time I toggle Fly on.  (Stevie Wonder's version isn't bad, either.)

Kiss - "A world without heroes".
Watch the original video, and remember it's Gene Simmons, *The Demon* who is singing about the loss of heroes.

oof.

...I'm going to have to hunt these songs down and put them on my MP3 playlist. Some great suggestions.

I'd vote for "Holding out for a Hero" as well.

Personally, I like the Jennifer Saunders version from Shrek 2  :-)

I'm thinking http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7vS4z6ngQo

Not only are the lyrics appropriate, but the show very much parallels CoH's struggle right now; it was a show unjustly cancelled before its time, only to rise out of the ashes a few years later with the movie "Serenity." Plus, the song has a bit of a 60's-folk-protest-song feel to it, as well.

I think it comes with Browncoats installed, too.  :)

Try the "extended version"  "Mal's Song" by Escape Key.

It seems that this whole movement is designed for that song. "See you in the skies, one last time." "I aim to misbehave." I've even heard "You can't take the sky from me." The theme from Firefly is absolutely perfect.
