Awesome Songs That Remind You Of...

I had this idea pop into my idea a couple of times over the course of the past year, so finally I'm doing something with it. Just a simple of idea of "Songs That Remind Me Of Something"; sort of like how "Saturday" by Basshunter makes me want to party, while "Friday" makes me want to punch a gurgling baby right square in the face (apologies to newborn baby mama and dadas).

Here's a little list of "Songs That Remind Me Of..." that I came up with:

Songs That Remind Me Of: The Crow
'The Crow' is a good revenge tale about a man who returns from the dead a year after his and his fiance's death near Halloween night. The film was made into a franchise that COULD HAVE been promising if in the right creative hands, but was instead designed to simply rehash the original again-and-again-and-again (quite unsuccessfully). I made this list of songs that make me think of the franchise that exists or the franchise that I would someday like to see exist, as I think that The Crow is a franchise with a lot of untapped possibilities.

1. Sevendust - "Leech"
When thinking of 'Freddy vs. Jason' some may recall the spectacularly violent fight scene, however, I remember the film daily because of a single song from its surprisingly intriguing soundtrack: a song called "Leech" performed by Sevendust. This is an emotionally-gripping song that caught me completely off-guard while listening to the film's ('Freddy vs. Jason') soundtrack. It starts off calm, with a nice little beat and an aquatic sounding atmosphere, then kicks it into full gear with the band's amazing vocalists echoing the beautiful chorus: "You can know / What it's like to be alone / And all there is that you know / I'll be the one left here when you're gone". Incredible song.

2. Deftones - "Diamond Eyes"
Kicking off their album, of the same name, "Diamond Eyes" explodes with it's masterful sound and vocals. Undeniably my favorite Deftones album, "Diamond Eyes" is equally one of the best songs I've heard from them. Lyrically, the song is absolutely fantastic, casting images in your mind of "coffin shakes" and "needle breaks" with the message of forever running away with someone close to your heart. This song is not only thought-provoking, it's beautiful.

3. Kings of Leon - "Pyro"
While their new stuff has not impressed me as much as their older records, the majority of their new album (Come Around Sundown) is triumphant. "Pyro" is a song that surprised me from the get-go; considering the band member's history, I expected it to have something to do with partying and juvenile activities. However, the song reaches surprising emotional-depths in its delivery. "I won't ever be a cornerstone" symbolizes a person-in-the-role-of-the-Crow's stand-up attitude to the criminals responsible for his/her death. A great song about dying humanity and the "never back down" nature of most human beings.

4. Nine Inch Nails - "Everyday Is Exactly The Same"
This song came to mind for the overall nature of a world in which a crow must inhabit where the majority of the citizens of falling prey to terrifying nighttime activities. This outstanding Nine Inch Nails song comments on the repetition of such a world and how it may eventually make a person out to be a vigilante for they "don't know what else [they] can do" because "everyday is exactly the same".

5. Smashing Pumpkins - "The End Is The Beginning Is The End"
Don't get confused with the song that was featured in the popular 'Watchmen' trailer (entitled "The Beginning Is The End Is The Beginning"), this is the alternate version to that song that was originally featured in 'Batman & Robin'. The song's opening lyrics instantly reminded me of 'The Crow': "The sewers belched me out / The heavens spit me out / From ether's tragic / I am born again". This song could almost be considered a title track for 'The Crow' because the lyrics perfectly replicate everything having to do with it; I'd say more so than it has to do with 'Batman & Robin'.

6. Hurt - "Rapture"
This is one of my favorite songs of all-time. Musically, it almost seems simple the way the band build-up to the song's outstanding chorus. However the song is far more powerful than it's chorus, in speaking of destroying gods and envisioning angels, it reaches to a great level of depth. Powerful stuff.

7. Ill Nino - "All I Ask For"
Another band featured on the 'Freddy vs. Jason' soundtrack (with a song called "How Can I Live"), I believe that this is the band's best song. "There's nothing to die for" is powerful enough, but the band itself reaches perfect collaboration with one-another and organize a very simple song about having nothing worthy of dying for.

8. Hinder - "Better Than Me"
I may regret this selection in the future, because this song is quite generic in how it speaks about love, but I think "Better Than Me" is a song that fits this topic in that it's simply about telling a love that if they were in their shoes, the love would be stronger. It's generic, it's simple, it's a decent track...

9. Coldplay - "Violet Hill"
...but back to the great stuff! This easily fits into my Top 3 favorite Coldplay songs if simply based off of it's chilling atmosphere, kicking in with the arrival of the line: "It was a long and dark December / From the rooftops I remember / There was snow / White snow". As soon as the vocalist mentions "rooftops", I can't help but picture Brandon Lee leaping across the nighttime skies, roof-to-roof, in search of his prey. Much like "Diamond Eyes", this is a song purely made for painting pictures in your imagination.

10. Cold - "Gone Away"
Here's the bonus track off of Year Of The Spider, "Gone Away" is (again) a song that revolves around love but flipped. I consider this song to be about repetition, much like "Everyday Is Exactly The Same", but this time about the repetition of human love only to come to terms with its repetition to find a place in your heart for your partner. This is a lovely song.

11. Breaking Benjamin - "What Lies Beneath"
The first 30 seconds of this song easily symbolize one's will to "start a fight", but later-on lack the strength to carry on by themselves: "You won't win". If they're rebooting 'The Crow', I'd love to see somebody display cowardice in defeating those who killed him/her and/or their loved one(s) and that's the human conflict that they must overcome. If there was anything lacking from the original, it was a sense of real human conflict upon becoming The Crow. Human conflict was shown (somewhat) in the sequel, 'The Crow: City of Angels', with The Crow falling in love with someone while on his mission. This sounds generic, sure, but it would have been effective if they played up the drama of such a love (essentially the woman would be loving a corpse if he stayed and didn't carry out his mission), but they quickly threw it away and decided to simply rehash the original. Lame.

12. Anberlin - "Inevitable"
This final track was inspired by my imagination on how a 'Crow' reboot/sequel/whatever could achieve excellence. Where the other film's simply focus on the revenge aspect of the story, what if the filmmakers actually focused more on the characters so we can go more in-depth on why the person returning from the dead's love is powerful enough to be brought back. In the films we have available, the background is simply provided in flashback format. In a potential reboot, let's focus more on the characters. If you're going to blatantly remake the original with Eric and Shelly, pull an 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' and explore their love for each other so we can have more of a reaction when Eric returns to exact his revenge. We watch remakes for something fresh ('The Fly', 'Casino Royale', etc.). If it's something we've seen done before ('Piranha 3D'), make it entertaining.

"Wonderful" by Everclear, reminds me of how happy I was before my parents got divorced 6 years ago. My life has been an emotional rollercoaster ever since.

This song fits so perfectly with a character like Spider-Man IMO, especially with the opening verse ("Nothing more here to cling to, just save the day"). I love this song so very much.

"The Rock Show" by Blink 182 reminds me of Hospital.

"Nice To Be Out" by Stereophonics reminds me of the third Harry Potter book.

I'm sorry to hear that, man. "Before I Go" by Unwritten Law is a beautiful song about the tragedy behind leaving someone, through death, but it empathizes that there's still hope left (which I believe there is, even in death) that you'll stay connected forever with the people you've loved over the years.

The Punisher:

+Hurt - "Ten Ton Brick", I absolutely love this song and it could work well for Ghost Rider too since it ends on these words: "I won't pretend to know your feelings I could never break the chain, I command you to move (which sounds like "burn", which I prefer over "move", with the distortion at the end)!" Unfortunately, I can't post up the song on here as it has some profanity within it.

Spider-Man:

+Sevendust - "Waffle", why they couldn't get Sevendust to do a track for the new Spider-Man film... I'll never know (instead they get Kendrick Lamar, I'm sure parents will just love that ), their discography is full of tracks that would fit perfectly with the wallcrawler's persona. This music video emphasises exactly why the band should have been given a shot at making a song for the new Spider-Man sequel.

+Revis - "A Gift", I can't really understand the words in this song, but I've heard it enough times to know some of them. The thing that makes this a perfect song for Spidey is the outstanding chorus and melody is rich and heroic, yet tragic-sounding just as Spidey's universe usually tends to be (in the best writings of the character IMO).

I like those, but you kind of lost me with Taylor Swift (though I do understand your reasoning now that I read your original posting). I think that "I Disappear" by Metallica would be another fantastic song for Batman as well. "Pieces" by Sevendust would be another killer song for Batman, they're my favourite band as of the past 5 years so I just couldn't resist finding a song of theirs that would be great for the Caped Crusader.

Asleep by the Smiths reminds me of the book Thirteen Reasons Why. I had it on repeat while I read it. Big mistake. The depressingness of the book combined with the sadness of that song completely destroyed me.

Well, it's kind of an out there answer to your question, but a few years back I had a huge Magic The Gathering phase. I also have a fairly broad taste in music. So certain genres would remind me of the certain colors of Magic. Here were the general matchups:

Black = "death" metal
White = folky/indie rock
Blue = technical or electronic music
Green = hippie or psychedelic rock
Red = punk music of any kind

And then they'd start to blend. It got to the point where whenever I played with certain decks (whether they be EDH, Pauper, drafts or standard) I'd only listen to certain bands.

For instance, when I played my Blue/White Venser blink deck I'd listen to a lot of Beck.
My green/white life gain deck called for CocoRosie or Animal Collective for some reason.
Had a really awesome white/red artifact deck and always, always listened to Fugazi and Minor Threat.

idk. I'm weird.

Audience of One by Rise Against reminds me of Spider-Man for some reason. The lyrical content isn't that related to his life or anything, it's just that I can see the final swing or whatever fading out and then this playing(Minus the little intro preferably) :
