If we were going by title only, I'd suggest "The Day The Whole World Went Away" by Nine Inch Nails. But the lyrics of it don't really fit.

One of my "Videos I Didn't Get the Chance To Make" was actually the story of Dark Astoria, using the "Quiet" version of TDTWWWA. I might still have the rough cut somewhere...

That was on my list as my Praetoria video.

Thte Promise from the Avengers:

Maria Hill: "Sir, how does it work now? They've gone their separate ways, some pretty extremely far. We get into a situation like this again, what happens then?"
Nick Fury: "They'll come back."
Hill: "You really sure about that?"
Fury: "I am."
Hill: "Why?"
Fury: "Because we'll need them to."

I don't mean to say our movement is anywhere as important, but that song from Michael Jackson nearly applies.

For those who can listen to Eurodance, E-Type Until the End (especially the chorus) (((DISCLAIMER: I didn't find another version on the net than this AMV, Safe For Work but you may get a laugh or two from those who don't know)))
Quote
We gotta win this war together
we will fight until the end of the world
we gotta keep it up forever
we will fight until the end of the world
til' the end....
Yeeessss....

Sure, it's more affiliated with Mass Effect 3, but this tribute video sums quite a few things up that apply to our efforts as well:

Well I will say that to me this song was appropriate.  Crysis 2 used a different version of this song but to me it went along with what I felt when we first heard the news about the shut down.   This one spoke to me the most:

I suppose it's the theme for my feelings on the matter. and I don't expect many to agree ^^;

Hi gang. So I've been hanging onto this lil song for some time now. I think it can be something that can be sung by the whole CoH community, even if you're like me and nervous to sing in front of others. It's simple, circular and easy to sing along to (and hopefully catchy). It'd be cool if we could get a collection of everyone singing it, and overlay it onto one of the vigil videos that have been made.

Here's me singing it... be gentle.

If someone with better musical talent who would like to improve on this - please please do :)

Thanks all.

Oops - meant to include the lyrics:

City of Heroes, city of more
Please save our city
Open those doors
"To the skies! To the skies!"
Cried all the heroes
Don't let our sun set
Let it rise, let us soar!

-----
Righty-o then!

After seeing this, I don't know what more inspiration you'd need to know how we feel about the City...

 A Pict Song

Rome never looks where she treads,
Always her heavy hooves fall
On our stomachs, our hearts or our heads;
And Rome never heeds when we bawl.
Her sentries pass on that is all,
And we gather behind them in hordes,
And plot to reconquer the Wall,
With only our tongues for our swords.

We are the Little Folk we!
Too little to love or to hate.
Leave us alone and you'll see
How we can drag down the Great!
We are the worm in the wood!
We are the rot in the root!
We are the germ in the blood!
We are the thorn in the foot!

Mistletoe killing an oak
Rats gnawing cables in two
Moths making holes in a cloak
How they must love what they do!
Yes and we Little Folk too,
We are as busy as they
Working our works out of view
Watch, and you'll see it some day!

No indeed! We are not strong,
But we know Peoples that are.
Yes, and we'll guide them along,
To smash and destroy you in War!
We shall be slaves just the same?
Yes, we have always been slaves,
But you you will die of the shame,
And then we shall dance on your graves!

We are the Little Folk we!
Too little to love or to hate.
Leave us alone and you'll see
How we can drag down the Great!
We are the worm in the wood!
We are the rot in the root!
We are the germ in the blood!
We are the thorn in the foot!

So, I searched "City of Heroes" on iTunes (trying to find an album cover for the GR soundtrak i got) and I found out that there's A band called City of Heroes.  :o
I don't know if anyone else knew about the group, but it surprised me. I believe they're classified as Rock/Alternative Rock.

So yeah, I just found that interesting and decided to share. Maybe it's worth looking into to help out efforts? :D

My vote is with one of three mentioned here. The Bonnie Tyler song, Skillet's song "Hero," and We Built This City. Just saying.
Blue Pulsar - 50 nrg/kin def - first toon - Liberty
Bane of Lanur - 52 nec/dark MM - Main vill - Liberty
Destan H. - 53 SS/FA brute - Farm/PvP hybrid - Freedom
Destan's Fury - 53 StJ/Regen brute - PvPer - Freedom
Destan's Shadow Gang - 53 Thug/Dark MM - PvPer - Freedom

There is also a group of Power Metal called Keldian, who made a song named Star Children, which could be the theme song of CoH's Kheldians ;-)
Spoiler for Star Children lyrics:
life, arise
exceed existence with burning eyes
believe, break free
illusions of boundaries and mortality
into eternity

you are not alone, you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night

my mind, blazing bright
eternal life in frozen lattices of light
I feel, I see
order in chaos and destiny
into eternity

you are not alone, you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night

firstborn, first free
freed from matter, beyond all life
into eternity

you are not alone...you are not alone

forever in this life, we sail the sea of stars
we ride the winds of light, across the cosmic night

A too-much-fitting ballad from them: Redshift
Spoiler for Redshift Lyrics:
So we're leaving you behind
Footprints on your shores
Washed away forever more
Looking at you one last time
As the wheel of heaven turns
We are never to return

I see it in your eyes
As the sky draws your gaze
Did you get to say goodbye?
Did you see her sad face?

Now we're leaving her behind
Nothing stays the same
Never to touch this ground again

I see it in your eyes
As the sky draws your gaze
Did you get to say goodbye?
Did you see her sad face?

The planet below will soon
Disappear into space
And now when you close your eyes
You will see us falling away

I see it in your eyes
As the sky draws your gaze
Did you get to say goodbye?
Did you see her sad face?

The planet below will soon
Disappear into space
And now when you close your eyes
You will see us falling away
Yeeessss....

So... I've been thinking... this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdGZBRAwW74 kinda fits how I feel about other games. (Thinking of You by Katy Perry.) These are the days I wish I had demo skills. :( But no other game just comes close to CoX--and no matter how much I like a game, it just doesn't live up to City of. Lyrics as followers for people who don't prefer her music:

Thinking Of You lyrics
Songwriters: Perry, Katy;

Comparisons are easily done
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one, I still got the seed

You said move on, where do I go?
I guess second best is all I will know

'Cause when I'm with him I am thinking of you
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you, what you would do
If you were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into your eyes

You're like an Indian Summer in the middle of winter
Like a hard candy with a surprise center
How do I get better once I've had the best?
You said there's tons of fish in the water, so the waters I will test

He kissed my lips, I taste your mouth, oh!
(Taste your mouth)
He pulled me in, I was disgusted with myself

'Cause when I'm with him I am thinking of you
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/k/katy-perry-lyrics/thinking-of-you-lyrics.html ]
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you, what you would do
If you were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into

You're the best, and yes, I do regret
How I could let myself let you go
Now, now the lesson's learned
I touched it, I was burned
Oh, I think you should know!

'Cause when I'm with him I am thinking of you
(Thinking of you, thinking of you)
Thinking of you, what you would do
If you were the one who was spending the night
(Spending the night, spending the night)
Oh, I wish that I was looking into your, your eyes
Looking into your eyes, looking into your eyes

Oh, won't you walk through?
And bust in the door and take me away?
Oh, no more mistakes
'Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay, stay

I listened to this song a lot when I was doing SaveCoH stuff. I also had a macro set for my mastermind and his minions that was synched up to it. I'll make a video of it. One of these days.
