Talking POST YOUR GREEN LANTERN THEME SONG!

Hey, if the Teen freakin' Titans can get one, why not the ringslingers?

I don't really know how to write a song, but I got an idea of what I want.

First, you get Bob Seger to sing a tune with all the oaths, then you got Kiss, Metallica, the Who, and AC/DC to the backgraound music.

It'd be a one hour long epic rockgasm.

Don't forget Nickelback!


Oh God...my ears are bleeding already


Personally, I think the GLC needs some more Epic music than that kinda stuff. I'm talking a massive orchestra, with a mixture of organic instruments and electronic synths and drums and stuff. I just don't see "Rock and roll" as GL material, unless maybe we're talking about Hal.

When I think of interstellar space cops, I think of cool ambient type music with a lot of swirling synths and blips and bleeps. Some good groovy baselines, and some heavy beats with solid snare drumming. And it's gotta be climatic, the song must build through the entire way, leading to a huge climax at the end.


I'd list off some bands, but no ones heard of them anyway. If I come across some songs I think would fit, I'll post them. (anyone know any sites where you can up your songs for free?)


Excellent thread topic BTW.

Well, maybe different songs for different Lanterns. Maybe someone like John Lennon for Kyle, something artistic and introspective. I've always pictured Guy having something like Black Betty by Spiderbait for his theme. Some kinda wild, finger-twanging music. For John... Maybe something like Stand Up For Rock 'N Roll by Airbourne. And, lastly, Hal. For Hal... Maybe Ugly by The Exies. As for a group theme... What about Break On Through (To The Other Side) by The Doors. I don't know. These are probably all horrible choices. But, just some ideas.

"It's Not Easy Being Green" - Kermit the Frog. For the Seven Corps as a whole: "Rainbow Connection," same artist

*dodges tomatoes*

Okay, guess not.

How about Evanescence doing an original song? Their stuff is epic, for sure.

Uh... I guess a lot of people misunderstood when I posted this...

What I REALLY meant was make up your own song.

My lyrics for the GL Corps - Van Halen - Dreams

World turns black and white

Pictures in an empty room

Your love starts fallin down

Better change your tune

Reach for the golden ring

Reach for the sky

Baby just spread your wings

Chorus:

Well get higher and higher straight up well climb

Well get higher and higher leave it all behind

Run, run, run, away

Like a train runnin off the track

The truth gets left behind

And falls between the cracks

Standing on broken dreams

But never losing sight

Spread your wings

Chorus

So baby dry your eyes, save all the tears youve cried

Ohh thats what dreams are made of

Oh baby we belong in a world that must be strong

Ohh thats what dreams are made of

Solo

Chorus

Higher and higher who knows what well find

And in the end on dreams we will depend

Cause thats what love is made of

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J4S0kuNCDpY

(Ignore the music video, it was the best copy of the song i could find)

Kyle's song is definitely "Everyday Superhero" by STEVE HARWELL

Every morning, I wake up just the same
Another victim, of ordinary fame
I don’t see myself, as invincible
It’s not, true at all

(Chorus)
I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Trying to save the world but never really sure
I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Nothing more than that, that’s all I really am

Just a day job, that someone’s got to do
It’s kind of hard, when everyone looks up to you
Try to make it look easy, gonna make it look good
Like anybody would

I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Trying to save the world but never really sure
I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Nothing more than that, that’s all I really am

I’m just like everybody else
After all the height, its all to you
I keep my game face, I’m so real

I’m just your average… ordinary… everyday, superhero
I’m just trying to save the world
Average… ordinary… everyday, superhero

I try to hide my, true identity
And no one knows it’s only me.

I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Trying to save the world but never really sure
I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Nothing more than that, that’s all I really am

Average… ordinary… everyday, superhero
Just trying to save the world
Average… ordinary… everyday, superhero

I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Trying to save the world but never really sure
I’m just your average, ordinary, everyday superhero
Nothing more than that, that’s all I really am

(ignore the HP video lol it's the best copy of the song i could find)

Exclamation A couple choices...

As some of you may already be aware, one of my all time favorite bands is the heavy metal band Disturbed. I think a couple of their songs fit well with certain characters and situations seen in the pages of GL over the last few years!

First up: A theme song for Alex Nero! This song has been around as long as Disturbed has, but they've never released it on an album! Well, it will FINALLY be on their new album, Indestructible, when it hits stores on June 3rd! You can download the MP3 of the album version NOW by going to Disturbed's Official Website!
Quote:
"Perfect Insanity" by Disturbed

Come inside and be afraid
of this impressive mess I've made
If you take a look now you will find
I have thrown away my vice,
done away with paradise
See what's going on inside my mind

Please let me out
Please let me out
Please let me

Branded like an animal
I can still feel the burning in my mind
I do believe that you made your message clear
(I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind)
Deprivating, isolating all that I feel
Leaving me with images I know are not real
Are those words of condemnation that I hear?
(I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my)

Come inside now, I implore
Do you think you can restore
the crucial pieces missing from my brain?
What seems to be the matter dear?
Why do you cry and shake with fear?
I've only had the best dub me insane

Please let me out
Please let me out
Please let me

Branded like an animal
I can still feel the burning in my mind
I do believe that you made your message clear
(I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my mind)
Deprivating, isolating all that I feel
Leaving me with images I know are not real
Are those words of condemnation that I hear?
(I'm losing my mind, I'm losing my)

I don't know how much I can take
The secret thoughts inside me wake
I've lost what was within me
Oh sweet insanity

I don't know how much I can take
The secret thoughts inside me wake
I've lost what was within me
Oh sweet insanity

Now I try again to find
the thing that was my mind
Behold the undersigned,
who said I've lost my mind
I try again to find
the thing that was my mind
Behold the undersigned,
who said I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind
I've lost my mind, I've lost my mind


Listen to it on YouTube!
Next up, a song that's great for the new "evil" Corps, especially the Orange Lanterns (but with a tip of the hat to the Red Lanterns and a hint of the Blackest Night, too!)
Quote:
"Avarice" by Disturbed

Ra!

Politics and evil,
all one and the same
Satan hides behind a different name

Ra! Ra!

Take these chains away
Free my hands from bondage
Can't explain away
Avarice will kill you and I!

Violent upheaval,
cities drenched in flame
Wickedness we know we can contain

Ra! Ra!

Take these chains away
Free my hands from bondage
Can't explain away
Avarice will kill you and I!

Who will we murder now?
See what we are becoming
An
onyx veil that filters out the light

I'll savor this anger
My hate makes me stronger

Free my hands from bondage
Take these chains away
Running from destruction
Avarice will kill you and I!
Kill you and I!


Hear it on YouTube!

This may be my theme for The Blackest Night. Kind of encompases all the different Corps in some way or another. Maybe not Hope and Compassion, or Love, but the darker stuff and a bit of the GLs. Not on Youtube

Protectors

Internalized by myth
New genetic mutations
Informs of monolith

Lifeless and fallen

A vastness of scars
The earth
Delusions so decayed
So empty
And perverse
Not a sound is heard

Lifeless and fallen
Bodies lie still
Waiting for rebirth
To strike at will X2

The final solution
Is execution
Foreign intruder
A new persecutor

Lifeless and fallen
This next one, I dunno. Doesn't really fit any GL related stuff, but the lyrics are awesome (as is the song). Its basically inspired from the movie Falling Down, and samples from it. Could only find a live vid of the song.

So Complex
In His Behavior
Crowded Into A
Hole

Racial Incoherence
Nowhere Left to Go

Misery Is Unforgiving
He Struggles From Within

He Roams The Human Wasteland
His Memories Grow Dim

[Chorus:]
Shots
Ring Out Loud
Dispursing The Crowd
Bodies Start to Fall
Blood on the Wall
No Time to Tell
Who's Going to
Heaven or Hell

The Acid Air
Blurs His Vision
City Crime
Takes It's Toll
A Metaphor
For This Incision

A Truer Life
Will Now Unfold
No More Pain
And Self Suffering
It All Ends
Where It Begins
A Universe On This Wavelength
Will Transmutate
In Other Things

[Chorus]

The Moment Comes
To Eradicate
A Time to Cleanse
The World
This Is Self Illusion
This Has No Conclusion

A .38 Hangs from His Hand
His Shoulders Slung Kind of Low
Smoking Shells Lay on The Floor
As The Blood Starts to Flow
The Sirens Scream Outside The Door
Police Running to The Scene
Inside A Man Stands All Alone
His Face Grinning Obscene

Oh, found this one for Laira. Pretty fitting I'd say. Unfortunatly I can't find the song on Youtube - this is the problem with listening to music very few people listen to.

After all comes tragedy
Forgotten lives no eyes to see

I tried to save a small part of me
But the layers of hate dismembered me
My damaged skin is wearing thin.

Underneath we stand too tall
But above we rise and fall
To our final destiny
May our hearts and our minds be free.
After all comes tragedy
Forgotten lives no eyes to see
So afraid to speak our minds
As we crawl through these times

I wasn't the first to bring it up, but I totally agree that "DARE" by Stan Bush is a great GL song.

Quote:
Sometimes when your hopes have all been shattered
And there's nowhere to turn
You wonder how you keep going
Think of all the things that really mattered
And the chances you've earned
The fire in your heart is growing
You can fly, if you try leaving the past behind
Heaven only knows what you might find

Dare - dare to believe you can survive
You hold the future in your hand
Dare - dare to keep all of your dreams alive
It's time to take a stand
And you can win, if you dare

Everybody's trying to break your spirit
Keeping you down
Seems like it's been forever
But there's another voice if you'll just hear it
Saying it's the last round
Looks like it's now or never
Out of the darkness you stumble into the light
Fighting for the things you know are right

Dare - dare to believe you can survive
The power is there at your command
Dare - dare to keep all of your dreams alive
It's time to take a stand
And you can win, if you dare

Dare - dare to believe you can survive
You hold the future in your hand
Dare - dare to keep all of your dreams alive
The power is there at your command

Dare - dare to keep all your love alive
Dare to be all you can be
Dare - 'cause there is a place where dreams survive
And it's calling you on to victory
