your comics theme song

Postby walkin_talkin_apocolyps » January 8th, 2013, 10:57 pm

theres a game up thar in the game forum where other people pick what songs they think would be good for another persons comic. but i dont think theres a topic about people pickin songs for their own comic. BUT NOW THERE IS!
SO did anyone else ever daydream about the president of TV askin to make yur comic into a cartoon? if you did what would your opening theme/soundtrack be?

for ME i couldnt find any songs about robots and black holes so i picked these:

1
AND

Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 Op. 18 technically is the theme song of The L, or at least the commentary series I did on The L.

Gilbert O'Sullivan's Alone Again could be considered the theme song for every single character. There's not one sane character in the story, and they all want to die. And they all do, after having their minds torn to shreds. There's no point getting attached to any of them.

When I was writing it in 2006 the closing theme was Twilight Time, because it has nothing to do with the story. It jars people away from the depressing crap that just happened. If it was a TV series each episode would have a different rendition performed by one of my top bands.

As for MIMIC, it's got to be

Sally's Song and Forms of Imprisonment
The lyrics even appear on a double page. These two songs pretty much inspired the story.

That's an odd theme for Rumplestiltskin.

I think there's actually one in the "Music" section.

I'll copy and paste what I've got there.

It's a good theme. I'd use it for anything.

Neon Glow would have Sweat It Out by Breathe Carolina.
I'm sure the song is about sex but if you don't take it that way, I see it as a neat actiony opening.

I actually have an entire faux soundtrack for mine, along with themes of course. One of which I plan to swap after remaking is complete, though.
For the prologue and first chapter, it's going to be changed to "Name" by the Goo Goo Dolls.
The theme of the second chapter and the one following it; "Better Life" by 40 Below Summer.
Aww fuck, and this thread reminded me I'm gonna have to swap out the BG on the second one now that I've redrawn it.

Music plays a big part in the scenes I write, so it's fun putting together fake soundtracks for my stuff, haha. The themes server less of a purpose but they're still fun to pick.

For Freakboy Did a Bad Thing, it's "The Veldt" by deadmau5. I was considered making a teaser video for the webcomic using the song, but I didn't have the interest or time to follow through with it.

I didn't answer the other thread, SO for Among the Ashes I'd go with "Heartlines" by Florence + the Machine
