    Your Personal Theme - Who ARE You?

    Hello Skadites,

    this is not supposed to be one of the manifold "Favourite XYZ"-threads. I want to know which piece of music decidedly describes you as a person (or your character, attitude, (current) condition) or catches your way of life. Do you have a special connection to it? Is it the song-text? Is it the composition? Is it both?

    Music is like an own language everyone can understand. So I think that the best way to understand the nature and true character of the different Skadites is to watch and listen to their theme song(s).

    So what´s about you? Who are you? Please show and share it with us.

    Well, the two pieces of music that describe me and my current situation the best are following two songs. The music fits and the lyrics are like bulls-eye! Both songs have become very dear to me and I keep listening to them regularly.

    So may I introduce? That is yours truly:

    ------------------------

    Nightwish - The Escapist

    Nightwish - The Escapist



    Who's there knocking at my window?
    The owl and the Dead Boy
    This night whispers my name
    All the dying children

    Virgin snow beneath my feet
    Painting the world in white
    I tread the way
    and lose myself into a tale

    Come hell or high water
    My search will go on
    Clayborn
    Voyage without an end

    The nightingale in a golden cage
    That's me locked inside reality's maze
    Come someone make my heavy heart light
    Come undone
    Bring me back to life

    The nightingale in a golden cage
    That's me locked inside reality's maze
    Come someone make my heavy heart light
    It all starts with a lullaby

    Journey homeward bound
    A sound of a dolphin calling
    Tearing off the mask of man
    The tower
    My sole guide

    This is who I am
    Escapist
    Paradise Seeker
    Farewell, time to fly
    Out of sight
    Out of time
    Away from our lies

    The nightingale in a golden cage
    That's me locked inside reality's maze

    The nightingale in a golden cage
    That's me locked inside reality's maze
    Come someone make my heavy heart light
    Come undone
    Bring me back to life



    Avril Lavigne - Anything but Ordinary

    Avril Lavigne - Anything but ordinary


    Sometimes I get so weird
    I even freak myself out
    I laugh myself to sleep
    It's my lullaby
    Sometimes I drive so fast
    Just to feel the danger
    I wanna scream
    It makes me feel alive

    Is it enough to love?
    Is it enough to breathe?
    Somebody rip my heart out
    And leave me here to bleed
    Is it enough to die?
    Somebody save my life
    I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

    To walk within the lines
    Would make my life so boring
    I want to know that I
    Have been to the extreme
    So knock me off my feet
    Come on now give it to me
    Anything to make me feel alive

    Let down your defences
    Use no common sense
    If you look you will see
    that this world is a beautiful
    accident turbulent suculent
    opulent permanent, no way
    I wanna taste it
    Don't wanna waste it away

    Sometimes I get so weird
    I even freak myself out
    I laugh my self to sleep
    It's my lullaby

    Is it enough to me?
    Is it enough to see?
    Is it enough to breathe?
    Somebody rip my heart out
    And leave me here to bleed
    Is it enough to die?
    Somebody save my life
    I'd rather be anything but ordinary please

    Nice idea there


    This is the video I also have on my profile since ages. When I first heard it, I was like "hey, they made a song about me ". The whole album has this special something that plays certain strings in my soul, although I'd have trouble to explain what exactly it is. It's just one of those albums that make me feel 'home'. Under the "totalitarian" noise (the words of my review writer collegue) there is this silence, the wind that sweeps through gloomy forests, the whispers of elves and trolls, the echoes of times long gone, yet carrying something that can never die...

    Utgard - Witch


    The lyrics have never been officially released, but imho it's quite well understandable.



    There'd be a lot of songs that represent facettes of me, but like with the song above, it wouldnt really help most people to understand me more
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    This song usually lifts my spirits. If I write a song, it is the type I am the most proud of.

    Gojira is a band that resonates full well with who I am as a person, or rather, if my soul was magically turned into the band it most resembles, it would be Gojira. Their aesthetic & musical approach are what I love most, in such a way that if they probed into my brain and conjured what I think is the best in music. They're inspiring lyrically, instrumentally, and artfully, evoking a sense of awe every time I put their music on, which has touched me profoundly over the years. As if their music is the soundtrack to a fantasy world of dark clouds, rocky crags, and green forest glens; blending a love for nature and a distaste for modernism with esoterism. Their energy is overwhelming, something you can get lost in, something with is so lacking in other metal (or music, for that matter).

    One of their songs stuck a chord with me lyrically while I was in a poor state of affairs, which, if all else fails, is a spectacular song to begin with. The entire album goes through a roller coaster of emotion, melody, and intensity.

    In short, it's simply beautiful.

    Another that I love. live.
    Gojira - World to Come

    [lyrics]
    This world is life
    This clouds-and-wonders
    Is all I need
    And it will never go
    You say it's lost
    I don't believe it
    This is my vision
    We can never know


    Drummer, Mario's, art/music video works.

    And finally, what goes in to making a Gojira record.

    Myself a while ago during bad-relationship times cliché-ish:

    Def Leppard - Love Bites


    Favourite lyric:
    I don't wanna touch you too much baby
    Cause making love to you might drive me crazy
    I know you think that love is the way you make it
    So I don't want to be there when you decide to break it
    Then when I was in a rut for ages:

    W.A.S.P - The Idol


    Best lyric:
    If I could only stand and stare in the mirror could I see
    One fallen hero with a face like me
    And if I scream, could anybody hear me
    If I smash the silence, you'll see what fame has done to me
    And then I got out of that rut and this is me now that I'm all positive again

    For some reason unknown to me, I can't embed Youtube vids in my posts, so here's some selected songs below. I don't have the time to link to all the Led Zeppelin tracks I would like to, so here's a select few of some of the better-known LZ songs:

    When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin

    Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

    No Quarter - Led Zeppelin

    Friends - Led Zeppelin

    Ten Years Gone - Led Zeppelin

    Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

    In the Evening - Led Zeppelin

    Nobody's Fault But Mine - Led Zeppelin

    Led Zeppelin's music says it all about me: it has run through my life like a long, hard thread.

    Fate - New Model Army


    They are a left wing band (like actively politically so) but I still like them and this song is me to a tee.
    Denn das Schöne ist nichts
 als des Schrecklichen Anfang, den wir noch grade ertragen,
 und wir bewundern es so, weil es gelassen verschmäht, uns zu zerstören.

    The best way to learn how to do this is to click the quote button in a post that has a youtube video embedded. Then you will see the correct format.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Hmm...

    Pearl Jam - Indifference


    i will light the match this mornin', so i won't be alone
    watch as she lies silent, for soon light will be gone
    i will stand arms outstretched, pretend i'm free to roam
    i will make my way, through, one more day in hell...

    how much difference does it make
    how much difference does it make...

    i will hold the candle till it burns up my arm
    i'll keep takin' punches until their will grows tired
    i will stare the sun down until my eyes go blind
    hey i won't change direction, and i won't change my mind

    how much difference does it make
    how much difference does it make..
    how much difference...

    i'll swallow poison, until i grow immune
    i will scream my lungs out till it fills this room

    how much difference
    how much difference
    how much difference does it make
    how much difference does it make...
    Lieber tot als Sklave!
