Songs for your character

Post by Brian » Tue Jan 27, 2015 4:55 am

Lots of players get into character using aural cues. What songs really get you into your character, our do you think of when you pay your character?

For me, playing Warren, the song that most got me into him for the first game was Audioslave's "I am the highway." I've recently put a list together that I think will help for next game;

Null Device - Return
Better Than Ezra - Coyote
Folk Implosion - Natural One
Audioslave - I Am the Highway
3 Doors Down - Dangerous Game
Bad Religion - Best For You
Null Device - Notes From The Fallen
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
Null Device - Word and Deed
Bad Religion - Against the Grain
REM - Bad Day
Stone Temple Pilots - Big Empty
Yellow card - Words, Hands, Hearts
Gravity Kills - Inside

About an hour of playtime, and a few songs that strongly tie my brain into Warren's mindset. I'm an introvert that has a tough time being the center of attention, but Warren is very much an extrovert, word warden, and natural leader. The Audioslave song in particular describes the character fairly completely to me.

What about you? What makes your character tick?

I often listen or hum these to me as I'm getting ready for the character.

Dollars Trilogy themes:

And, well, alright, I listen to Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars.

“Believe me, believe me, this loneliness won't go away
Hear me, Oh, woman that has gone astray, gone astray
Your friends, your friends will always just be in your way
Trust me, they'll die or leave you, either way
Either way.”

Oddly enough.... I don't have songs or a playlist for Lottie. I just put on the player piano playlist, get into costume and go.

I also listen to a bunch of Mexican Folklorico songs.

In general, my drive up the mountain has a lot of "The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck" in it, including The Last Sled and A Lifetime of Adventure.

I'll come back, when you call me
No need to say goodbye.”
