I thought I would post here because I have already made some character fan vids to some of the songs suggested...

Crazy by Gnarls Barkley for Rorschach: http://www.imeem.com/akemi42/video/J4CY ... ies-video/

The Man Who Sold the World for Ozy: http://www.imeem.com/akemi42/video/W_vS ... ies-video/

And I don't think anyone posted this, but I love Missile by Iamx for Manhattan: http://www.imeem.com/akemi42/video/_THn ... ies-video/ (also on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqnYLShdS5I)

I am a music video nut if you can't tell. :)

Despite the song is sung by a woman, I'd have to say No One Knows Who I Am from the musical Jekyll and Hyde for Rorschach.

Quote:
Look at me,
And tell me who I am.
Why I am
What I am.

Call me a fool,
And it's true I am.
I don't know
Who I am.

It's such a shame,
I'm such a sham.
No one knows
Who I am.

Am I the face of the future?
Am I the face of the past?
Am I the one who must finish last?

Look at me,
And tell me who I am,
Why I am
What I am.

Will I survive?
Who will give a damn,
If no one knows
Who I am?

Nobody knows -
Not even you -
No one knows who I am...

I'm biased, so could someone go listen to Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden and read the lyrics and tell me if it reminds of the GN as a whole like it does me? I've listened to it a hundred times by now trying to figure out if I was imagining it...

(Ew, run-on sentence. Sorry...)

I was listening to the Depeche Mode song Wrong today. Seems like it would fit either Rorschach or Eddie Blake. Would make for a good AMV either way.

I was born with the wrong sign
In the wrong house
With the wrong ascendancy
I took the wrong road, that lead to
The wrong tendacies

I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
On the wrong day of the wrong week
Used the wrong method with the wrong technique

Wrong
Wrong

There's something wrong with me, chemically
Something wrong with me inherently
The wrong mix with the wrong genes
I reached the wrong ends by the wrong means
It was the wrong plan in the wrong hands
The wrong theory for a wrong man
The wrong eyes on the wrong prize
The wrong question with the wrong replies

Wrong
Wrong

I was marching to wrong drum, with the wrong scum
Pissing out the wrong energy
Using all the wrong lines, with all the wrong signs
with the wrong intensity
I was on the wrong page, of the wrong book
With the wrong rendition of the wrong hook
Made the wrong move, every wrong night
With the wrong tune till it sounded right, yeah

Wrong
Wrong (Too long)

Rorschach = Three Dog Night's "Black and White": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOr4O66WZW0

The ink is black, the page is white
Together we learn to read and write
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

And now a child can understand
That this is the law of all the land, all the land

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

And now at last we plainly see
We'll have a dance of Liberty, Liberty!

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
The whole world looks upon the sight, a beautiful sight

The world is black, the world is white
It turns by day and then by night
A child is black, a child is white
Together they grow to see the light, to see the light

C'mon, get it, get it
Ohh-ohhhh, yeah, yeah
Keep it up now, around the world
Little boys and little girls
Yeah, yeah-eah, oh-ohhh

In the GN, Kovacs the Doomsday Prophet was considered to be 'nothing' until he was revealed to be Rorschach. The song that fits this would have to be Mailman by Soundgarden:

Quote:
Hello don't you know me
I'm the dirt beneath your feet
The most important fool you forgot to see
I've seen how you give it
Now I want to receive
I know that you
Would do the same for me

I'm know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way

For all of your kisses turned
To spit in my face
For all that reminds me
Which is my place
For all of the times when
You made me disappear
This time I'm sure you will
Know that I'm here

I'm know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way

My place was beneath you
But now I'm above
And now I send you a message
Of love
A simple remind of what
You won't see
A future so holy without me

I'm know I'm headed for the bottom
But I'm riding you all the way

Crap, I need to stop coming here...

When Rorschach is arrested and his mask pulled off, the cops call him an "Ugly Little Zero" and no one really notices Kovacs anyway. Aside from the song I previously posted, here's another: "Mr. Cellophane" from the musical Chicago:

Quote:
If someone stood up in a crowd
And raised his voice up way out loud
And waved his arm
And shook his leg
You'd notice him

If someone in a movie show
Yelled "fired in the second row,
This whole place is a powder keg!"
You'd notice him

And even without clucking like a hen
Everyone gets noticed, now and then,
Unless, of course, that personage should be
Invisible, inconsequential me!

Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name !!!!
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there!

I tell ya
Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me walk right by me
And never know I'm there. . .

Suppose you was a little cat
Residin' in a person's flat
Who fed you fish and scratched your ears?
You'd notice him

Suppose you was a woman wed
And sleepin' in a double bed beside one man for seven years
You'd notice him

A human being's made of more than air
With all that bulk, you're bound to see him there

Unless that human bein' next to you
Is unimpressive, undistinguished
You know who. . .

Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there
I tell ya
Cellophane
Mister cellophane
Should have been my name
Mister cellophane
'cause you can look right through me
Walk right by me
And never know I'm there
Never even know I'm there

Wonferful thread This are some of my choices:
Not sure if I should post the lyrics but I think is best if you read them:

Ozymandias Eurythmics : I Saved The World Today

Monday finds you like a bomb
It's been left ticking there too long
You're bleeding
Some days there's nothing left to learn
From the point of no return
You're leaving

Hey hey i saved the world today
Everybody's happy now
The bad things gone away
And everybody happy now
The good thing's here to stay
Please let it stay


There's a millions mouths to feed
But i've got everything i need
I'm breathing
And there hurting thing inside
But i've got everything to hide
I'm grieving


Chorus again

Doo doo doo doo doo the good thing

How is that no one has the perfect Dr. Manhattan song? Coldplay The scientist? I can imagine it about him and Laurie and the earth during his conversation on Mars.

Come up to meet you,
Tell you I'm sorry,
You don't know how lovely you are.

I had to find you,
Tell you I need you,
Tell you I set you apart.

Tell me your secrets,
And ask me your questions,
Oh let's go back to the start.

Runnin' in circles,
Comin' up tails,
Heads on the science apart.

Nobody said it was easy,
It's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
No one ever said it would be this hard.
Oh take me back to the start.

I was just guessin',
At numbers and figures,
Pullin' the puzzles apart.

Questions of science,
Science and progress,
Do not speak as loud as my heart.


Tell me you love me,
Come back and haunt me,
Oh on I rush to the start.

Runnin' in circles,
Chasin' our tails,

Comin' back as we are.

Nobody said it was easy,
Oh it's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
No one ever said it would be so hard.
I'm goin' back to the start.


Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo
Ahhooooooooooooooooo

The comedian: The bad touch. (horrible pick up line but overall fits his view of the world= asshole/idiot)
Do it now
You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals
So let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel

Rorschard: Cleaning out my closet Eminem (Just because is the most hateful song about a mother I ever heard!) and Boulevard of broken dreams:

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
Where the city sleeps
and I'm the only one and I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk alone

I walk alone
I walk a...

My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
'Til then I walk alone

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line
Of the edge and where I walk alone

Read between the lines
What's fucked up and everything's alright
Check my vital signs
To know I'm still alive and I walk alone

Laurie (to Jon): Precious

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling
My God what have we done to You?

We always try to share
The tenderest of care
Now look what we have put You through...

Things get damaged
Things get broken
I thought we'd manage
But words left unspoken
Left us so brittle
There was so little left to give


Angels with silver wings
Shouldn't know suffering

I wish I could take the pain for You

If God has a master plan
That only He understands
I hope it's Your eyes He's seeing through


I pray You learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in Your heart for two

Dan (to Laurie): Breathe In Breathe Out Mat Kearney
Breathe In Breathe Out
Breathe in, breathe out,
Tell me all of your doubts,
& Everybody bleeds this way,
Just the same.

Breathe in, breathe out,
Move on and break down,
If everyone goes away I will stay.

We push and pull,
& I fall down sometimes,
I'm not letting go,
You hold the other line.

Cause there is a light in your eyes, in your eyes.

Hold on hold tight,
From out of your sight,
If everything keeps moving on, moving on,
Hold on hold tight,
Make it through another night,
& everyday there comes a song with the dawn,

Look left look right,
To the moon in the night.
& everything under the stars is in your arms.

Yup.
For Rorschach, I can't think of anything NOT from a musical, so Epiphany from Sweeney Todd.
Epiphany:
had him!
His throat was there beneath my hand.
No, I had him!
His throat was there and now he'll never come again.
When? Why did I wait?
You told me to wait -
Now he'll never come again.
There's a hole in the world like a great black pit
And it's filled with people who are filled with shit
And the vermin of the world inhabit it.
But not for long...

They all deserve to die.
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why.
Because in all of the whole human race
Mrs. Lovett, there are two kinds of men and only two
There's the one staying put in his proper place
And the one with his foot in the other one's face
Look at me, Mrs Lovett, look at you.

No, we all deserve to die
Tell you why, Mrs. Lovett, tell you why.
Because the lives of the wicked should be made brief
For the rest of us death will be a relief
We all deserve to die.

And I'll never see Johanna
No I'll never hug my girl to me - finished!
Alright! You sir, you sir, how about a shave?
Come and visit your good friend.
You sir, too sir? Welcome to the grave.

I will have vengenance.
I will have salvation.
Who sir, you sir?
No ones in the chair, Come on! Come on!
Sweeney's. waiting. I want you bleeders.
You sir! Anybody!
Gentlemen now don't be shy!

Not one man, no, nor ten men.
Nor a hundred can assuage me.
I will have you!
And I will get him back even as he gloats
In the meantime I'll practice on less honorable throats.
And my Lucy lies in ashes
And I'll never see my girl again.

But the work waits!
I'm alive at last!
And I'm full of joy!

Maybe a little emotional at the end and definitely about sweeney todd,but it fits.



I think this is perfect!!! It's all about how Rorschach initially would let the criminals die, but then he "saw the light" and decided to have no mercy. The song is also mentioning all the people that are "filled with s**t"...(Rorschach calls them "scum")

Awesome choice!!!

Mine are...

Rorschach :-|-: - Epiphany - Sweeney Todd (obviously, i just ranted about it)
or Wanted Dead or Alive by Bon Jovi ;)

Nite Owl II :geek: - What I Like About You? - The Romantics (I can't really think of anything for
him, but this sorta' works...)

The Comedian :) - Everything You Know Is Wrong - "Weird Al" Yankovic
(No matter how stupid the song is, It actually kinda' represents The Comedian's
view. Particularly "Everything you know is wrong, just forget the words and sing
along")

Ozymandias 8-) - Let it Be - The Beatles

Silk Spectre II :P - Start Me Up - Rolling Stones

Dr. Manhattan :mrgreen: - Everybody's Talking At Me - Harry Nilson


BTW - I made some myspace accounts using, songs that you guys thought of (hope you don't mind)
Here are the links, (I also made facebooks for almost every single watchmen character(type
in full name of "secret identity")the links to the facebook are on the ones below)

Found another in digging through my iPod.

Tu Vas Me Detruire (You Will Destroy Me) from the French musical Notre Dame de Paris. Frollo laments his lust/hatred for Esmeralda.

To me, it suits Rorschach's sexual repressive issues.

Aqua's "Aquarius" I heard it and thought of dan slumped over in his basement and can't not think of Dan now


Oh my God, that's all I'll be able to think of with that song now.

For the plot in general (though there is dominating amount of Veidt's "SOMEBODY HAS TO DO SOMETHING" mentality in the lyrics), I'm going to have to be lame and drag in, of all things,"Die Schatten Werden Laenger" from the Austrian musical Elisabeth. The song itself is in German, and is in its original context a duet between the historical Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria-Hungary and a personification of Death. The original title translates to "The Shadows Grow Longer", but here is an English translation titled (fittingly for Watchmen) "The Evening Turns to Midnight". (The German lyrics actually end each chorus with "it is five to twelve" as an evocation of the world being on the edge of disaster and everything.) I bolded the most applicable parts:

Death:
It's time we spoke to one another
Time to flee what shadows smother
You know me, yes, you know me...
The boy you were when we last spoken
Was sad, alone, deprived and broken
I promised... not to... leave you!

Rudolf:
I call you in desperation
Every time this nightmare haunts me,
When it feels like suffocation.

Death:
You called, here I am!

Both:
The evening turns to midnight,
and no one can see what's going wrong.
They think they bask in sunlight,
but they're dancing to the devil's song.
The evening turns to midnight
Shadows start to fall, and we are dragged along!


Rudolf:
Now the world sails near disaster
I can hear the storm and thunder
Our ship will be torn asunder
I'm bound here; I am chained here.

Death:
Take the helm and change direction
You can see the storm oncoming
Cure the world from this infection


Rudolf:
Something must be done!

Both:
The evening turns to midnight,
Even love is turning cold and grim
Four horsemen ride in moonlight
Man has failed to see in front of him
The evening turns to midnight,
Shadows start to fall, and indulge every whim


Death:
Take this advice from me
Look to the monarchy,
Do what you must,
then you'll have the power!


Rudolf:
Power?

Both:
The evening turns to midnight,
One must try at last to turn the tide,
We do what we feel is right,
Time is always on the devil's side
The evening turns to midnight

Kaiser Rudolf will control our destiny!

Also, for fun with 80sness, I have a sneaking suspicion that news magazine shows in-universe probably used Bonnie Tyler's "Holding Out For A Hero" as part of a Veidt clip reel. Not only is that song from 1985, it fits in well with the shallow way he's viewed by the public, the fact that news magazine shows WOULD do something like that, and the fact that it's vaguely implied in the GN that he's seen as quite the eligible bachelor. From an outside perspective, it just ends up being really, really ironic and twisted.

Comedian: Rooster by Alice in Chains (JDM has said he knew the band and liked the song)

It really describes Comedian sitting at home, alone, haunted by what he saw on that island, just moments before Ozy comes for him.

Aint found a way to kill me yet
Eyes burn with stinging sweat
Seems every path leads me to nowhere
Wife and kids household pet
Army green was no safe bet
The bullets scream to me from somewhere

Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he aint gonna die
No, no, no, ya know he aint gonna die

Walkin tall machine gun man
They spit on me in my home land
Gloria sent me pictures of my boy
Got my pills gainst mosquito death
My buddys breathin his dyin breath
Oh God please wont you help me make it through

Here they come to snuff the rooster
Yeah here come the rooster, yeah
You know he aint gonna die
No, no, no ya know he aint gonna die
