Characters and Songs
« on: June 27, 2015, 12:39:57 pm »
Over the years I've made quite a few of those "Warrior Cats Theme Songs" videos (and grumbled at a few hundred which all used the same boring songs as each other). My most recent one is here if anyone wants to have a watch/listen (if not, I'll include some of the songs in this thread anyway :P)

So my question is, what songs remind people of particular characters, pairings, Clans, etc.? My list is as follows:

Series as a whole/plot
Warriors - Freedom Call (the song currently in my signature)
Wings of Forever - Power Quest (song starts at 1:45)
Score to a New Beginning - Fairyland (New Prophecy)
Cities in Dust - Siouxsie and the Banshees (New Prophecy)

Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold (Dark Forest)
Halo of Blood - Children of Bodom (Dark Forest)
Starlight Reverie - Edenbridge (StarClan)
Nemesis - Arch Enemy (ShadowClan or BloodClan)
Sacrament of Wilderness - Nightwish (Tribe of Rushing Water)
Risen Through the Ashes - Malefice (WindClan, particularly Onestar)

Fly Away - Indigo Girls

Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold
Understanding in a Car Crash - Thursday

The Artist in the Ambulance - Thrice (also appropriate if you ship Littlecloud/Cinderpelt :3)

No Fool for Trying - Madison Violet (Couldn't find the studio version on YouTube, so here's a live one instead. Makes me think of Bluestar's Prophecy, after Snowfur's death)
Empress of Fire - Dragon Age: Inquisition Soundtrack

Raining Blood - Slayer (also applies to BloodClan as a whole)

Heaven is a Lie - Slaves to Gravity (I should've used this in the video really, as the lyrics relate to her better than the one I chose)

Enola Gay - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark

Walk - Pantera
The Crow, the Owl, and the Dove - Nightwish

Shine on You Crazy Diamond (Part 1) - Pink Floyd (lyrics start at 8:45)

Double Agent - Rush

Lying in the Sun - Stereophonics

Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

Leafpool/Cody (not a very popular ship, but one I'm fond of)
Together in Electric Dreams - Human League (I feel like this could also apply to Jayfeather/Half-Moon, but I've not read any of the books with them in, so I'm not sure)

Lauralee - Madison Violet (again, live version)

Your Betrayal - Bullet for my Valentine
Welcome Home - Coheed and Cambria

Ever since I first read the original series, I've associated "Be Prepared" from The Lion King with Tigerstar.

Ashfur's songs include 'Crawling' by Linkin Park and 'I Hate Everything About You' by Three Days Grace.


(P.S: Pretty much all the music in the OP is what I listen to and I think that's glorious.)

oh man fsts are my jam but it's been so long since I was really into the books, I'm not getting anything off the top of my head...
I took these from an old list of mine I dug up and I think they're... probably mostly still applicable??

for Hollyleaf:
a beautiful lie - 30 seconds to mars
fences - paramore

Blue/Thrush is easy they're just one-sided love songs:
everything you want - vertical horizon
she will be loved - maroon 5
the other man - sloan (tenuous but I'll take it)

aaand one for Blue/Oak:
the walk - imogen heap

also on the subject of Ashfur(/Squirrelflight):
hate (i really don't like you) - plain white t's

Thought of a couple more ^_^

"They Don't Know" by Kirsty MacColl reminds me of several of the forbidden romances in the series, and her other song "A New England" reminds me of Leafpool :)

Flogging Molly's "What's Left of the Flag" makes me think of WindClan, and a Leaf/Crow song I forgot to include was "Don't You (Forget About Me)" by Simple Minds.

I've come to associate the Fun songs Sight of the Sun with Clear Sky and Why Am I the One with Gray Wing.

Series in general
The Voice (Celtic Woman) - "The voice" is the call of the forest and of warrior life.   I don't know why it came into my head as my personal "theme" for Warriors, but that's what it is.

Great Journey
Move Along (The All-American Rejects) - The song came out around the same time as Dawn, I think.  I heard it a lot around when the book came out.

Aqua Harp (Animusic) - Discovered Animusic around the time of The New Prophecy.   This song makes me picture a ShadowClan cat slinking gracefully through a marsh at nighttime.


The River (Garth Brooks) - (Sorry for video quality; they're apparently diligent about removing just-plain-audio versions of the song and I can't find even one).   I thought this fit her love for Graystripe; the song is about following dreams.  And then I realized afterward that the whole "river" thing fits her being RiverClan.

I'm Moving On (Rascal Flatts) - This completely fits him after returning to his Clan after his romance with Leafpool.  "Finally content with a past I regret"... "I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long" fits the romance, and then "I've lived in this place and I know all the faces, each one is different, but they're always the same.  They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it: they'll never allow me to change".... WindClan will never think of him differently, he'll always be the cat that ran off with Leafpool.

Restless (Sara Evans) - One of my favorites on this list.  This song fits her being a wanderer, and once the manga came out it still fit, especially the bridge about wanting to find someone who cares and finding a place to put down roots.

The Piper (ABBA) - Sol is "the Piper" to the Clans.  He came to ShadowClan, and they let him "play their minds away". And "the fear was a weapon in his hand".

Bluestar x Oakheart
If I Never Knew You (John Secada & Shanice) - This is another of my favorites on this list.  This just fits their illicit, enemy-Clan romance perfectly: "I never thought that fear and hate could be so strong, all they'd leave us were these whispers in the night... But still my heart is saying we were right..."

Sasha x Tigerstar
Sweet and Wild (Dierks Bentley and Sarah Buxton) - The first time I heard this was in the car, reading the first TigerxSasha manga for the first time.  It fits their romance.

Second Chance by Shinedown is practically made for Cinderpelt

I'm sure I could think of more, it's just been a while I am rusty on my warrior cats knowledge (heh. Rusty.)

Ever since I saw the MAP for it I think Little Fang is probably the song that describes Jayfeather the absolute best. It's literally his life in a song lmao

Annnd that's all I got cause I don't typically tie songs to characters whoops :x

thank you ss !! <3

There's a bunch I have somewhere (Ive been working on making a bunch of playlist recently) but the most recent one I can think of would be Ptolemy Was Wrong by The Ocean for Mothwing! Not the most creative I know, but like, w/e it's a great song and fits her pretty well I think

My Immortal by Evanescence will always remind me of Graystripe x Silverstream because of an AMV I saw back when I was around 12. Looking back though, it does fit pretty well.

My general ideas.(The music is only samples, you'll have to look at all of it on youtube.) I know this is done so much, but I tried to branch out in my choices. Suggest your favorite! Here they are:




Firestar: P.S. Any mature warriors fans need to watch this movie right now.







I'll post more in a while, along with alternate favorites.
