What Songs Describe You?

What Songs Describe You?

Postby AceofSpades » February 21st, 2015, 4:57 pm

Sorry if this is already a topic somewhere, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

They say you can tell a lot about a person from the music they listen to.
Music has always been an important part of my life; I'm almost always seen wearing headphones. For the past few days, the topic of music has become much more frequent in my everyday conversations. Anywho, to the point:

Some time ago, I came across a song that I identified with more than anything, so much so that I decided that if I were to have a theme song or background music, it would be that. So I was curious, what songs would you all say perfectly define you? It can be more than one song, of course. If you can't think of one, you can also post a song that describes how you feel right now. If in the future, you find another song that describes exactly how you feel at that moment, feel free to post that one, too! By listening to that song, we'll be able to know how you feel without you having to go into detail.

I'll go first. My theme song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm7O_ZSnvqE
And here's the second installment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Woc9Dbe3F3M

So, let's try to understand each other through music~!

Dayum, that is one catchy ass theme. And for my favorite Sonic character, too~

I love Hey Jealousy xD

Well there's an obvious contrast between these two songs... One's upbeat and nostalgic, the other mysterious and somewhat daunting.
Interesting to use both to describe yourself.

Hurt, by Nine Inch Nails but covered by Johnny Cash.

And perhaps I don't understand how the YouTube tag works...

Dragonfly, at least in part, saved my life in 2006. The dragonfly is a spirit animal with the power to travel between worlds, as I've done a few times. "No night is so long to stop day from following." A lovely message of hope desperately needed in a world gone mad.

I would say Hey Jealousy is rather depressing. Loss of love, loss of self identity. A world we can never return to. And then there's probably what I would consider a motto of mine, kind of, "if you don't expect too much from me you might not be let down."

Oh heck yeah. Johnny Cash owned that cover. One of the most moving songs I've ever experienced.

Music has been a major part of my life, especially in the latter half when I started to grow an interest in playing it for myself. I have a love for many different kinds of music, and it's difficult to really nail down a specific song that I would say defines me, since I've found an attachment in so many songs over the years.

If I had to pick one off the top of my head though, I'd say this one sums me up pretty well:



This song is literally about the joy that we find in life that comes from listening to the music we know will always be around, regardless of the bad things that pop up from time to time. I like to consider myself a pretty optimistic individual, and ska has always had such an uplifting and positive message behind it. I have a hard time not wrenching a smile out every time I hear this one, and I hope that someone else listens and gets a smile on their face as well.

I'll go with this;

Yeah. I think it's a perfect mix of nostalgia, chillness, and gaming/music combination goodness.
Spoiler! :
For real though it's not an easy subject to answer. I could never choose something that "describes" me lyrically or with it's message, only in the way it sounds, and that'd be too large a spectrum to choose from.

Just gotta take the "s" out of "https" holmes.

I can definitely relate to both of these on some days.

I feel like Ocean Breathes Salty by Modest Mouse suits my general frame of mind lately pretty well:
