~FST Volume 2: More music! More abrupt tonal shifts!
zarla wrote in respectawoman
ALRIGHT it's time for LADYZOMBIES FAN SOUNDTRACK! The majority of these have shown up as pictures or comics in places or have been mentioned, but some are songs that I just strongly associate with them that I haven't drawn yet. EITHER WAY THESE ARE ALL OVER THE PLACE
I sort of roughly organized them SORT of chronologically but it's still probably going to jump wildly in terms of mood, haha. It's only criteria for being included is that it inspired something or makes me think of them. It's possible I've linked to some of these before BUT OH WELL

The first volume is over here for those interested. THIS ONE IS BIGGER AND MORE INSANE clocking in at 8.7 hours and 129 tracks, jesus. IT IS SO LARGE IN FACT THAT I HAVE TO SPLIT THIS POST IN TWO what is wrong with me

Anyway this post will cover the first three sections - Preinfected, Postinfected, and Survivors. Then the next one will do the Multiple, Other, and Jockey One-Liner songs. THIS GOT WAY OUT OF HAND

If you don't want to read my stupid rambling about each song, just scroll down to the spiffy album art I made for each section! The link to the zip for that section should be right beneath it.

Before these poor suckers became zombies

1. Jump5 - All I Can Do
I know some people say
That opposites attract
If that's the truth then we
We will be together forever

Just a cute peppy song TO GET THIS STARTED haha. Hunter and Smoker might not seem like people who'd get along as well as they do AND YET. Did this little thing for it.

2. EasyPop - Happy Synthesizer

For this one it's not so much the lyrics or anything, but the dance done in the video I linked here. I ended up rotoscoping both Charger and Smoker doing some moves, haha. I have skeletons laid out for the others but I just need to get around to it. CONSEQUENTLY NOW WHEN I HEAR THIS SONG I PICTURE THEM DANCING.
This falls in that grey area where it could be them as survivors or them before they got infected but whatevs I'll put it in here since none of them have their weapons.

3. Guys and Dolls - Pet Me Poppa
So pet me poppa, poppa pet me nice. (Meow!)
Pet me poppa, poppa break the ice. (And you know how!)
If you don't want me out roaming the city,
Talk to me pretty, "Here kitty kitty!"
And pet me poppa, poppa pet me nice.

Smoker teased Hunter with this song here and here. Secretly I imagine this song comes to mind for Smoker fairly often around Hunter, haha. Actually most of Guys and Dolls reminds me of them now after they went on that wacky date BUT I WON'T PUT THE WHOLE SOUNDTRACK
this won't be the last song from it though

4. A Chorus Line - At the Ballet
Mother always said I'd be very attractive
When I grew up, when I grew up.
"Diff'rent," she said, "With a special something
And a very, very personal flair."
And though I was eight or nine,
Though I was eight or nine,
Though I was eight or nine,
I hated her.

A Smoker-type song which played out in this comic here. A glimpse into her childhood or her just getting into the song? Either way, I think the lyrics resonate with Smoker more than she'd probably like, haha.

5. Röyksopp - Remind Me
It's only been a week,
The rush of being home in rapid fading.
Prevailing to recall
What I was missing, all that time in England

Has sent me aimlessly,
On foot or by the help of transportation,
To knock on windows where
A friend no longer live, I had forgotten.

For this one it's more the general quiet mood than anything else that gets me in mind of their preinfected lives before everything shattered, just quiet nights spent together. Can work for when Smoker is called off for some kind of trip, but I can also see it as a little Charger/David song as well for when their work calls them to spend time apart, haha. Could also work for them all wandering around as survivors (where friends no longer live) but I dunno, for me it tends to be preinfected more than anything else.

6. Nicki French - Tell Him
Tell him that you're never gonna leave him
Tell him that you're always gonna love him
Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him right now

Referenced in this comic over here, haha. IT'S SUCH A BOUNCY LITTLE SONG
And with some quick pronoun swaps, it seems to work well for Hunter's general inability to talk about her feelings. Well to be fair that is EVERYONE'S problem in this, haha.

7. Akon feat. David Guetta - Sexy Bitch
The way, that booty movin' - I can't take no more
Have to stop what I'm doin', so I can pull up her close
I'm tryinna find the words to describe this girl without being disrespectful

Damn girl

Damn, you's a sexy bitch

Hunter teased Smoker with this song over here, haha. Overheard in some club she went to perhaps. IS THERE A GRAIN OF SINCERITY IN IT??

8. My Fair Lady - I Could Have Danced All Night
I could have danced all night!
I could have danced all night!
And still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings
And done a thousand things I've never done before.

They teased each other with this song here. I can picture the two of them sweeping around her little apartment and laughing and making fun of each other but secretly really enjoying it to themselves. THE ONLY WAY TO COMMUNICATE IS THROUGH TEASING

9. Wicked - For Good
I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you

Absolute sugar I know BUT SMOKER LOVES MUSICALS AND IT WORKS ALL TOO WELL FOR THE TWO OF THEM. The in-world explanation being that Smoker would have dragged Hunter to the play (as I'm sure she drags her to any musicals that come to town), and then would have been blindsided by a song that previously didn't resonate quite so hard with her. NOW SHE ACTUALLY HAS A FRIEND WHO CHANGED HER LIFE
It played out pretty much in comic form here and here. THEN THEY NEVER TALK ABOUT IT haha. Well Hunter does mention it during that terrible not-immune storyline.
It can also apply to when the two of them are separated for various reasons, such as one of them dying as a survivor in a variety of ways, that's sort of flexible. BUT THEY WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER EACH OTHER.

10. Hercules - I Won't Say I'm In Love
If there's a prize for rotten judgement
I guess I've already won that
No man is worth the aggravation
That's ancient history, been there, done that!

APPROPRIATELY THIS IS SUPER CLICHE AND I KNOW but i couldn't resist it worked really well for Smoker's POV as she tries as hard as she can not to fall in love with Hunter in return AND THEN ALL THESE STUPID FEELINGS HAD TO GET IN THE WAY AND RUIN IT
Did like the whole thing over here and it amuses me that I think this is where Juan first appears, haha.

11. Ryuusei-P - Magnet (Choucho Version)
I just want you to hold me, I want you to tell me
That the love we have is not some kind of a mistake
Kiss me on the lips, I want the world to change for me
Intoxicated by the love we share, let me drown in this moment

This song is so oldhat in Vocaloid circles but it IS a love song between two women, one more hesitant/afraid of what their love could mean and the other trying to reassure her in spite of her own fears, so whatevs I think it fits. Smoker finally gives in and goes for it, despite her concerns! I drew them in stupid outfits over here as a result durrr.
There are A MILLION covers of this song, both by singing robots and real people, but I liked this one. Choucho who does both voices herself and adds a nice flair at the end I like, and I also like how her Luka voice is different from her Miku one. :B The youtube link goes to that version too, but if you want one with subs and the original vocaloids here it is.

12. Hyadain feat. Diskun Seijin - Is this what it's supposed to be like to have a girlfriend?
Blue: Is this what it's supposed to be like to have a girlfriend?
It's already been three months since we started going out
I can't even hold her hand.
Green: Seriously?
Blue: Seriously.
Green: That's ridiculous.
Blue: It just keeps building up, both my stress and... THAT!

Pink: Why don't you mail me everyday?
Didn't you promise to call me every night before bed?
Which is more important: me or your friends?!

Blue: Jeez, what a bother...
Green: I see your point.
Both: Is this the life that comes with having a girlfriend?

Hahaha I was going to just spring this as a surprise whenever I eventually did it, but I actually had a very goofy and fast flash vid in my head to this, mostly done in quick black and white scribbles in Flash at some point. Blue would be Hunter, Green would be Mousey, and Pink would be Smoker, and it'd invert some lines or reinterpret them as it went BUT BASICALLY I THOUGHT IT'D BE AMUSING
Anyway Hunter is frustrated by Smooker's moodiness even when they do get together, haha.

13. Hannya-G - Escape the Princess
Handmaid: As I breathe heavily haze grows in my sight
Princess: I desire having thee in my command
Handmaid: I shall be wild forever and a slave til I die...
Princess: I want thee above all so... stay in the Princess's hand!

This song is actually darker than they usually are and doesn't directly relate to them I think, but it did inspire this unfinished pic I did of Hunter kind of grabbing Smoker all possessively. :B SOMEDAY I SHOULD FIGURE OUT WHICH WAY TO COLOR THIS AND FINISH IT
It amuses me to have this one and the previous song right after each other, haha.
I linked to a subbed version on Youtube there, but the version in here is a cover done by Lily and Rin that I like more. :B

14. Rent - Tango: Maureen
[MARK] And you toss and you turn
'Cause her cold eyes can burn
Yet you yearn and you churn and rebound

[JOANNE] I think I know what you mean

Went with this this shot of Juan and Hunter. The two of them awkwardly talking about how tough it can be to be in a relationship with Smoker, even if Hunter loves her madly. SOMETIMES IT GETS A BIT TRICKY

15. Freezepop - Duct Tape My Heart
you're so dreamy, you're so sweet
swept completely off my feet
you duct-taped my heart back together
i think that this could last
I hope that this will last
I know that this will last forever

Just something cute since Hunter's fascinated with duct tape and all. :B Goes with this shot of them together.

16. Enya - Flora's Secret
looking up from eyes of
they can see the sky
is blue
knowing that their love
is true
dreams they never knew
and the sky above is blue

For some reason this always made me picture Hunter dragging her out hiking into the mountains or something for a picnic or the like or just for exercise and the two of them under a tree just lying in the grass AND IT'S ALL TRANQUIL AND PEACEFUL I DUNNO
Ended up doing this for it.

17. SHINee - Lucifer (Robotaki Remix)

Not so much the lyrics on this one, mostly I picture Jordan and Hunter going out to a club or rave or something and dancing together to this. I GOT REALLY CLEAR IMAGES OF IT ONE NIGHT AND NOW I CAN'T SHAKE IT
So now Hunter dances to it in my head with Jordan, why not. Poplock the night away!

18. Nori-P - Butterfly on the Right Shoulder
Make my eyelashes longer,
Create a crecent shape above the lash lines
Wear a glossed lip

This is a bit more self-destructive than Hunter is in general, but I liked the idea of interpreting "wear a glossed lip" as having blood on your lip from a fight. IDK MAN tried drawing it once here and once here.
I link to a vid with subs on Youtube here, but the version included is a cover done by Majimeini that I like more. :B

19. Vertical Horizon - Shackled
I know now what shadows can see
There's no point in running 'less you run with me

Hunter again! Most of it doesn't connect except for the line "no point in running less you run with me" which I just could not shake at all, leading to this.

20. Foetus - Quick Fix (Charlie Clouser Mix)

Kamesen actually brought this to my attention in this fic he wrote about Hunter running blind AND IT'S SUCH A GREAT IMAGE SO NOW IT'S STUCK IN MY HEAD TOO
Just her tearing through a dark city being followed by zombies, somersaulting and leaping and jumping, I can totally see it in my head. But it works as a general Hunter-and-friends-doing-Parkour type song so it's here instead of the survivor section.

21. Rent - I'll Cover You
I think they meant it when they said you can't buy love
Now I know you can rent it
A new lease you are my love, on life
Be my life

Getting into the sadder bits now. Like in the original musical, the first time is sort of lighthearted and fun like so here, and then later on when the two of them struggle with getting bitten and infected and whatever it gets much sadder. D:

22. Gregory and the Hawk - Boats and Birds
if you be my boat
I'll be your sea
a depth of pure blue just to probe curiosity
ebbing and flowing and pushed by a breeze
I live to make you free
I live to make you free

but you can set sail to the west if you want to
and past the horizon till I can't even see you
far from here where the beaches are wide
just leave me your wake to remember you by

More so the melancholy feel of the song than the words, but Smoker having sort of a private moment and thinking about how much she cares about Hunter and how easy it'd be to lose her, which sort of manifested in this snuggly thing here.

23. Higurashi no naku koro ni - You
Where are you right now?
What are you doing at this moment?
Are you looking up into this wide, blue sky?

The price of having lost you is way too great
and I desperately reach out and struggle to grasp it
It just slips out of my grasp, like the wind
There's nothing left to reach my arms out towards

My chest is aching from the loneliness I suffer now
and my heart seems to break whenever I think of you.

But it is your smile that remains in my memories
It is your smile that motivates me to live.
Let's travel through time, and return to that point in which we used to live
I'm sure that we'll make it through all right this time.

On the cusp of infection, and it could go a few different ways. Smoker worrying about her when the infection hits and she doesn't know where she is, or sadder situations where only one of them survives for one reason or another. Or if they're survivors, getting separated and trying to find each other. It can sort of branch into a few different places, but mostly for me it seems to read as preinfected.

It also works as a MAJOR Charger/David song when she's a Survivor. :<

24. The Clockwork Quartet - The Doctor's Wife
For though she's paralysed
I know that inside there must still be a functioning mind
Neatly laid on the bedsheet
I can still hear her fading heart-beat
I'll keep her stable and continue my research
She'll smile again
And I must bring her back to me
In her eyes I can see the gleam
In my mind I can hear her pleading

Don't let me go, my darling
Hold me safely 'til the morning
Promise, when the lights are fading
You'll save me.

Del was the one who inflicted this terribly sad song on me YOU CAN BLAME HER. But anyway Hunter is infected, she's fading, there's nothing that can be done but Smoker is determined to save her, she WILL save her, she won't let her die, no matter what happens, she won't let her go... Hunter clinging to her, her mind fading, eyes gone, begging her, you'll save me, promise you'll save me, you'll save me

Actually can apply to that other brief thing I toyed with related to Kokoro, but you can skip to the Other section for more on that idea, haha. The scientist unable to let go.

25. inaphon - Tombstone
All my wish was,
just all,
all my wish was
that you were just with me

why have you gone by yourself?

One of them has become infected, and the other watches helplessly. They're fading, being taken away, and there's nothing they can do... unless they're willing to come after them. To fight for them even though it means that they'll become infected too. But at least they'd be together.
Can also apply for when one has survived and is struggling to carry on without the other! It is hard times. Can go either way with who's gone really, though usually it's Smoker struggling after Hunter's infected. Weirdly though I can also see this evenly from Hunter's perspective so eh who knows.
The utau version of this song is the only version that exists, believe it or not. :o

26. October Project - Deep As You Go
Deep as you go I'll follow
Deep as the water goes
All the world is hollow and dry
But you and I go down
You and I go down

Don't save me
Don't lose me
Don't wake me now
You let me
You release me
Let me drown
Take me down

Somehow I need to love you
More than I need to breathe
I can feel you leaving the ground
I will follow you down
You and I will drown

The transition from preinfected to postinfection. Smoker makes her decision - she will follow Hunter down, the two of them will go down together. The way the lyrics go can actually be a counterpoint with Hunter telling her to go, don't save me, and yet telling her to stay at the same time, and Smoker refusing to go. IF WE'RE GOING TO DIE, WE'RE GOING TO DO IT TOGETHER

Zip of the Preinfection songs - 120 mb

Running around biting people. What else can a zombie do?

1. Pendulum - Watercolour
When I'm falling down
Will you pick me up again?
When I'm too far gone
Dead in the eyes of my friends

Will you take me out of here?
When I'm staring down the barrel
When I'm blinded by the lights
When I can not see your face

Take me out of here!

Another transitional song, the opening with the four of them suffering through their transformations, Smoker deciding to help Hunter when she's too far gone, and then getting mauled for her troubles when Hunter's lost to the virus. Then I can see it cutting to Charger finding her husband's body, Jockey having a breakdown in a safe room, the four of them as zombies roaming the streets killing people, IT COVERS A LOT OF GROUND but my mental images for this are SO CLEAR you have no idea.
But since it mostly focuses on them as zombies here it goes. :B It can also apply to that terrible not-immune scenario I linked to up there but this one has gradually become clearer than the other now. :B

2. Katethegreat19 - I Will Follow You Into the Dark
Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

Also cliche but it worked so well for Smoker deciding to stay with Hunter in the end and become a zombie with her HOW COULD I RESIST? Did a whole bunch of shots to it.

3. Oxygen feat. Andrea Britton - Am I On Your Mind?
Am I somewhere in the corners of your mind?
Do you see me when you close your eyes at night?
I will love you till the sun no longer shines...
Am I far away or am I on your mind?

Am I on your mind...?

I use this song for everything, haha. But mostly Smoker facing an infected Hunter, pleading with her and wondering if she's still in there somewhere. Sort of blurs the two categories now that I think about it, haha. OH WELL. Goes with this and this.

4. Apoptygma Berzerk - Until the End of the World
I'll stick with you until the end of the world
I cry out loud but you hear nothing
I'll wait for you until the end of the world
My dearest treasure torn away

Two zombies that stuck together in spite of it all. WHO CAN STOP THEM? Even if they can't really know each other any more. Goes with this shot

5. Daft Punk - Something About Us
I might not be the right one
It might not be the right time
But there's something about us I've got to do
Some kind of secret I will share with you

I need you more than anything in my life
I want you more than anything in my life
I'll miss you more than anyone in my life
I love you more than anyone in my life

They never did really tell each other how they felt, and as zombies, it's too late for it now. But still, the feelings were there, for what it's worth. Goes with this shot of them.

6. Randy Newman - I Will Go Sailing No More
In my silver ship I sail
A dream that ended too soon
Now I know exactly who I am
And what I'm here for
And I will go sailing no more

All the things I thought I'd be
All the brave things I'd done
Vanished like a snowflake
With the rising of the sun

The life and dreams and aspirations of a zombie don't matter anymore once they've become infected. Then they are only monsters to be killed, never to be human or live their lives again. Never have a chance to do any of the things they may have wanted. Went along with this shot here.

7. Pet Shop Boys - Together
Together's amazing
Together we're blazing
Together we'll go all the way
I'll cry with you
I'll die with you
Together we'll go all the way

This song actually can work for them both as zombies and as survivors, haha. For zombies it's a bit of a downer, particularly the "I'll die with you" line. THIS ZOMBIE GROUP WILL GO DOWN TOGETHER TRYING TO KILL YOU
For survivors though it can be much more uplifting. :B I however did a shot of them as zombies to it, so in here it goes.

8. Sasakure-P - Hello Planet
I watch you in your silent slumber...
Drip drip, I hear the sound of waterdrops
Why do i feel this way?
Why? Why? WHY?

Haha such a peppy little song! But it brought to mind adventures with them as zombies for some reason, as detailed in a whole bunch of shots here. Eventually at the end getting shot and ascending back to their original forms up in the sky with all their friends. :B Jaz also mentioned having some mental images with this with Jockey wandering around with them as a survivor looking for Travis which is also pretty cute, haha.

9. Tatsh & Naoki - Red Zone

No real lyrics in here but this one is kind of embarrassing, haha. In my head I picture The Passing from the games with the canon survivors, Bill and Zoey and Louis and Francis all trying to raise the bridge. The generator fails, Bill jumps down to go restart it, they all cover him. The tanks start coming for Bill, he turns to face them... and then out of nowhere, a Charger hits one of the Tanks and knocks it off course. A Hunter hits another one, a Jockey lands on the other, and Bill takes the chance to run back to the others, but he can't get back up on the bridge... until a Smoker grabs him and pulls him up. THEN EVERYONE SITS THERE IN SAFETY ALL ????

10. Adam Lambert - Fever
Oh baby, light's on
But your mom's not home
I'm sick of laying down alone, hey
With this fever, fever, yeah
My one and own
I wanna get you alone
Give you fever, fever, yeah

Haha a little bit of a story to this. There's an AMV on Youtube that has most of that one Japanese artist's male canon Hunter/Smoker art done to this and I was always sort of amused by it. I JUST PICTURE INCREDIBLY VIOLENT ZOMBIES TO THIS SONG blood and gore just flying EVERYWHERE
That is not what the AMV had if you're wondering though, haha. :B

11. Namie Amuro - Hide and Seek
C'mon Let's play Kakurenbo
Boy you gonna try to find me

Zhanael linked me to this song on the last edition actually! :D To me I picture Griffin, Sparkles, and Psychopro wandering around, catching sight of one of the ladies like Jockey or Hunter, and luring one of them off by themselves by hiding and popping up and tempting them to find and kill her. Then when they're all by themselves, BAM pounced to the face and massacred by the rest of the team in waiting, and so on with each of them as they slowly pick off the team. TRIUMPHANT ZOMBIE SONG

12. Linkin Park - When They Come For Me
Oh, when they come for me
Come for me
I'll be gone.
Oh! When they come for me
Come for me, I'll be gone!

And all the people say aaaah...

Try to catch up motherfucker!

I can so clearly see each of them slowly revealing themselves in the opening bits to an unsuspecting survivor team. Most of the rap bits don't have anything, but when it gets to the "Oh when they come for me" bit, I can see quick flashback sort of things to how each of them got infected, ending with Charger being overwhelmed, only to come charging out of the zombies now infected and changed, grabbing a Survivor and smashing them to the ground as their team decimates the Survivors, except for one (Pro?) who tries to run, only for Smoker to snag him. They draw him back, then they hear army dudes approaching. They stare confused until a shot hits near them, then they all scatter. There's a bit of a bleedover with the curedAU here, in that they could be getting shot at with darts, or with bullets, either way. But they each get picked off, and it ends with Charger rushing into the midst of them roaring. ANYWAY THAT'S WHAT I SEE

13. Klaypex - Rain (feat Sara Kay)
Holy shit!

Haha again along the same lines of the above, but more triumphant and victorious. Griffin and the others cautiously making their way around the city, nervous, and then when the drop hits, BAM Hunter falls from the sky and just crushes them to the ground, prompting their teammates to say the words as in the song, haha. BASICALLY ZOMBIES TAKING NAMES AND SCARING THE HECK OUT OF PEOPLE also murder
all these songs involve murder in my mind, haha

14. Andrew W.K - Ready To Die
This is your time to pay,
This is your judgement day,
We made a sacrifice,
And now we get to take your life.

You better get ready to die,
You better get ready to kill,
You better get ready to run,
Cause here we come,
You better get ready to die!

Your life is over now,
Your life is running out,
When your time is at an end,
Then it's time to kill again,
We cut without a knife,
We live in black and white,
You're just a parasite,
Now close your eyes and say good-night!

THIS SONG IS SO CHEERY but it totally works as a zombie song I think. Especially "we made a sacrifice, and now we get to take your life." SURE MY BODY MAY HAVE BEEN HIDEOUSLY MUTATED IN A WAY THAT CAN NEVER BE FIXED BUT MY GOD IT WAS MUTATED TO KILL THE HECK OUT OF YOU
I also like the black and white line since it sort of reminds me of how in versus in the games, the infected's vision is sort of sepia-toned and washed out. :B And cutting without a knife, since Hunter claws! I can totally see a really goofy video with this done with some zombie chibis, haha. Maybe them chasing Psychopro around.

15. How to Destroy Angels - The Space In-between
All our blood lying on the floor
Sense the crowd expecting something more
Opened up, proudly on display
What we tried so hard to hide away

Arms entwined in a final pose
Narrative drawing to a close
Still remain the things we couldn't kill
In your eyes I can see it still

And as a counterpoint, more of a downer zombie song wherein they end up dead, as most zombies do. The bodies all oddly entertwined, reaching out to each other, but who would notice that kind of thing anymore anyway? As long as they're dead, who cares? IT IS A HARD LIFE FOR A ZOMBIE

Zip of the Postinfection songs - 73 mb

Ain't no zombie gonna break my stride

1. Graham Gouldman - With You I Can Run Forever
We see the bright lights
of the city
The colours change they re-arrange themselves
In different
But it's too crowded in the city
And so we leave it all
Go on to other places

With you I can run forever

Just sweet inspirational stuff about how they'll keep supporting each other and helping each other and WITH EACH OTHER'S HELP THEY WILL SURVIVE THIS ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE NO MATTER WHAT
Drew a whole bunch of fluff for it here

2. Enya - White is in the Winter Night
Green is in the mistletoe and red is in the holly
Silver in the stars above that shine on everybody
Gold is in the candlelight and crimson in the embers
White is in the winter night that everyone remembers

Just an all too catchy Christmas song that ended up inspiring a few holiday type pictures and popping up in odd places, but mostly this shot was inspired by it. :B

3. Dance Nation - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Someday soon we all could be together
If the Fates allow
Until then, we have to muddle through somehow

Jockey tormented Charger unintentionally with this song here. CHRISTMAS IS A TERRIBLE TIME FOR SURVIVORS and I should probably link to like a serious/sad version but this is the one I listen to the most often because I'm terrible SO THIS IS THE VERSION YOU GET

4. Guys and Dolls - Sit Down You're Rockin the Boat
I dreamed last night I got on the boat to heaven
And by some chance I had brought my dice along
And there I stood
And I hollered "Someone fade me"
But the passengers, they knew right from wrong.
For the people all said sit down, sit down, you're rockin' the boat
People all said sit down
Sit down you're rockin' the boat.

Jockey and Smoker had an unexpected bonding moment with this song here and here. I actually spend a lot of time listening to the Takarazuka version of the song sung by all ladies which seems appropriate, haha. I'LL INCLUDE THAT ONE TOO

5. Kelly - Let Me Borrow That Top
I've already been to Heaven
I've already been to Heaven
I've already been to Heaven
After five minutes I was like let's go.

OH JOCKEY just busts this out in the middle of a horde and everyone just like what
Could probably also be preinfected, but I drew her as a survivor so here it is

6. Owl City - Deer in the Headlights
Met a girl in the parking lot
And all I did was say hello
Her pepper spray made it rather hard
For me to walk her home
But I guess that's the way it goes

My Jockey FLELE was singing this song and it amused me, which eventually led to this, haha. I JUST LIKE JOCKEY SINGING INAPPROPRIATE SONGS

7. Dragonforce - Fury of the Storm
Into the fires of forever we will fly through the heavens
With the power of the universe we stand strong together
Through the forces of power, it will soon reach the hour
For victory we ride, Fury of the Storm!

Jockey sang this to help pump her teammates here and here. THE SURVIVORS WILL TRIUMPH AGAINST ALL ODDS

8. Toby "Radiation" Fox - Nautical Nightmare

I KNOW I KNOW there's probably no way to break the association to MSPA with this but FOR ME ANYWAY I actually see a kind of pixel based 8-bit showdown between the four of them and a Tank. IT'D BE VERY INTENSE

9. TVXQ! - Keep Your Head Down
Keep your head down
U-Know time (Max)
You know what time it is?
This is return of the king

This is actually mainly the intro than the rest of the song, believe it or not, haha. Mostly I picture them getting ready in the safe room for the opening part, putting on gloves, overshirts, tying bandanas, equipping themselves, that sort of thing, and then they bust open the door. Horde comes in, Smoker pulls a molotov out and lights it (to the fwooof sound), then goes KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN and tosses it. FIRE EVERYWHERE and then Hunter would do the THIS IS RETURN OF THE KING part and then things would get crazy, the rest of it is pretty vague for me compared to the opening, haha.
The sounds in the video are really what help with the visuals as opposed to the album version, thus the noises in this copy. :B

10. Big Dumb Face - Fightin' Stance
Lots of flocks on the rocks
Wearing boots without no socks
Whoopin' ass, knuckles brass
Bitin' fire and chewin' glass
Temper like a cyclone, baby
In a fightin' stance, ambiance

Weirdly there's no Youtube vid to this, wtf. WELL whatever, a general I'LL BEAT YOU UP kind of song for survivors though I always associate it more with Smoker in particular cause of her boots. Did this shot to it here.

11. Hans Zimmer - Mombassa

From Inception yes. :B Mostly in my head I picture the end of No Mercy as a campaign with the four of them. They've made it up to the roof of the building, and they prepare and get ready. They call for rescue, and the zombies begin streaming up towards them. They fend them off until there's a lull, and they can feel the building shaking as a Tank comes up. It gets real tense until it bursts out to a Molotov to the face, and the four of them manage to take it down. The circling helicopter at this point finally comes in close enough for them to get on, but Hunter gets separated from the others in the process. The three of them call for her to come to them, but a whole bunch of zombies stand in the way. The helicopter begins to take off, and Hunter runs and parkours her way around the zombies and such to try and get to it. At the last second, she jumps off the building in an attempt to grab it, and Smoker falls out trying to grab her, though Charger manages to catch her foot before she falls completely. After pulling them back in finally the four of them can relax a bit since they've made it to safety. I HAVE NO IDEA IF I'LL EVER MAKE THIS INTO AN ACTUAL VIDEO but I can see it very clearly in my head. :B

12. Sasakure-P - Our 16bit Warz

The lyrics in this are super abstract and don't make a lot of sense, but someone mentioned this song sort of made them think of Charger, and I can sort of see it. It's got a war-like kind of alarm sound to it, and I can picture the four of them scattering and trying to escape from both zombies AND the army after them at the same time.
The youtube link goes to the original since it has subs, but the one included is a cover by Ten and Valshe that I like better. :B

13. Owl City - Kamikaze
The princess in her flowerbed
Pulled the jungle underground
Where cherry bombs stain the blackbird's red
And explosions never make a sound

Jockey incoherently rambling and kind of hallucinating bizarre explanations for things happening while they're all wandering around. The guitar part makes me picture Smoker just strumming along in the back of a Jeep they found somewhere, haha.

14. NieR - Emil (Karma)

Another Jockey one in my head, just her sort of singing serenely while surrounded by blood and death and chaos. Gutting a zombie with her zoned out look completely focused on hitting each note as she goes from one zombie to the next. CRAZY MURDER JOCKEY

15. Temposhark - Don't Mess With Me
'Cause all your heads are gonna roll
I've made your misery my goal
So if you want survival
Kneel on my arrival

A douchey song for a douchey guy! Psychopro to be exact. THERE ARE NO POLICE TO STOP HIM NOW, HE CAN KILL ANYONE HE WANTS! Goes with this shot.

16. Conjure One - Center of the Sun
When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

I hear violins

Jockey losing herself in her music to survive the world around her. Goes with this shot here

17. Owl City - The Real World
Reality is a lovely place but I wouldn't want to live there

Inspired this crazy Jockey shot here, haha.

18. Ben Folds - Jesusland
Miles and miles
and the sun's goin' down
Pulses glow
from their homes
You're not alone
Lights come on
as you lay your weary head on their lawn

Ladies wandering through empty places where people used to be and finding little hints of the people that used to be there. Inspired this comic here.

19. Tracy Bonham - Mother Mother
I'm hungry
I'm dirty
I'm losing my mind
Everything's fine!
I'm freezing
I'm starving
I'm bleeding to death
Everything's fine!

Jockey again! I just love the intensity of the "everything's FIIIIIIIINE" scream which worked for Jockey for me, haha. Did some shots of her being somewhat crazy over here.

20. Mother - Flying Man
Life is but a moment
A single grain of sand
That slips right through the hourglass
And slips right through your hand
You've shown me how
To make each moment count
And I know now
What life is all about

FRIENDSHIP SONGS although I then tainted it by having Jockey sing this while she was sacrificing her life to save the others here. I'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU GUYS just like the flying men in the games, haha

I also love the remix of it Mustin did.

21. Sissel Kyrkjebø & Espen Lind - Where the Lost Ones Go (I Will Be With You)
Leave and let me go
Don't look back, just let me know
You'll carry on, carry on, you must stay strong

Jockey sang this while they were dealing with DavidZombie and broke Charger's heart into a million pieces subsequently. It works as a general Charger/David song though, or for any of their lost loved ones really. Even worse if they urged them to go on without them because they knew they were infected.

22. Florence and the Machine - Cosmic Love
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness
So darkness I became

This could sort of work in a few ways. One is the process of infection, with Hunter going blind and unable to find or see anyone, and Smoker left alone in the darkness, so she became a Smoker, things like that. But the shot that actually eventually came of it was not as obviously related but had Jockey as a survivor, SO IT'S IN THIS SECTION

23. Take That - The Flood
Here we come now on a dark star
Seeing demons, not what we are
Tiny minds and eager hands
Will try to strike but now will end today

I had the most bizarre images of them casting off in a boat in the rain to this, I don't even know. ONLY CHANCE PREVENTED THIS PICTURE FROM ACTUALLY BEING DRAWN AT THE TIME what is with me

24. Jump Little Children - Cathedrals
In the cathedrals of New York and Rome
There is a feeling that you should just go home
And spend a lifetime finding out just where that is

Jockey depressed all of her friends with this song here. CHURCHES ARE DEPRESSING PLACES I GUESS
Jockey slowly getting more and more unstable.

25. They Might Be Giants - Am I Awake?
These are not the clothes I had on when I went to bed
And something else besides my hair is growing from my head
And when I close my eyes it looks the same as when I open them again

Am I awake?
What time is it?

Is it that time again?
Wasn't it already then?
So does it have to be
The time it was again

When I get through this day
Can't someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?
Am I awake?

Jockey freaking out/dissociating and having trouble keeping track of time, like in this fic. Meta-commentary on how they do the same campaign over and over again! Don't mind me.

26. Mayhem - It's Murder
The taste of blood
It's murder
Was it worth it?
This is your fault
You chose this path

Jockey wracked with guilt over killing people, although while I mostly picture Jockey I guess it can also apply to any twinges of conscience the others might have over killing zombies. Except Smoker, I don't think she cares, haha. BUT HUNTER WOULD but mostly I think of Jockey sort of freaking herself out about her own freakouts.

27. cosMo-P - The Disappearance of Hatsune Miku (Liqu@, Hatsune Miku, 弟の姉)
I wish that at the time when
I can't sing well
You'd be with me
Stay by my side and cheer me up

"I want to sing... I... I still... want to sing..."

I try to remember faces
of people I've missed
but those memories
are fading away

---A Critical Error Has Occured---

It showed up here for example. The last lines "A critical error has occurred" also brought about this. Other images I get involve Jockey fantastizing about her friends and family being okay at the beginning and then rapidfire images as it goes along, maybe for a lone Survivor Jockey or something. I DUNNO IT MAKES ME THINK OF HER
The particular version here has Miku and two real singers, one of whom can do the spoken parts really well and the other who can hit the pained screams of desperation. I'd link to that for the youtube vid but it's sort of hard to find and I'm lazy. SO YOU'LL JUST GET THE FILE IN THE SET

28. Star Salzman - Forever Until Tomorrow
Then I awake,
at the end of time.
Time and space,
are friends of mine.
Someone let me out of here!

Jockey's time problems again. Mostly I love the SOMEONE LET ME OUT OF HERE! bit, I can picture her doing that. :B

29. Florence and the Machine - Drumming Song
There's a drumming noise inside my head
That throws me to the ground
I swear that you should hear it
It makes such an all mighty sound

I ran to a tower where the church bells chime
I hoped that they would clear my mind
They left a ringing in my ear
But that drum's still beating loud and clear

Someone actually suggested this to me! For Jockey and the Church Guy in Death Toll and his church bells. Jockey tripping out and losing herself in her music again.

30. Duran Duran - Before the Rain
A stormy summer
Is rolling closer
Lighting up this holy smoker
And if this drinking
Could ease the thinking
I toast to my home truth with this glass

Moving off of Jockey, I picture this in a scenario sort of like Hard Rain. They're waiting somewhere, near a house, while the sky gets darker and the air gets heavier with an incoming storm that they know is coming, and there's this sense of duty and obligation that pushes them rather than any real motivation, sort of going through the motions, in a way? If that makes sense. Just tired and worn out and trying to relax a little before the storm. Mostly picture Smoker smoking outside in the wind before it hits, for example.

31. 3OH!3 - Colorado Sunrise
And if I had something to say to you I'd whisper it softly
Kiss you on your rosy lips and never let you off me
Shiver on your roof and see your face lit by starlight
Hold you through the night and watch that Colorado sunrise

This one is so iffy because it's really only the first 50 seconds that brought anything to mind, but it was a really strong mental image of all of them chilling out in some abandoned gas station or small building or another in the southwest with Charger keeping watch on the roof as the sun rises. The rest of the song is totally unrelated and kind of annoying though. OH WELL.

32. Poets of the Fall - Carnival of Rust
I lust for after no disaster can touch us anymore and more than ever
I hope to never fall, where enough is not the same it was before

This one is a bit odd, someone once asked if they could RP as Jockey and Hunter at an RP based on this song's video sort of, if I recall. I WAS COOL WITH IT AND I DUNNO HOW IT WENT but as a result I always think of them when I hear this song, haha.

32. Toby "Radiation" Fox - Descend

I KNOW AGAIN but for some reason there are some bits that always make me picture the entire not-immune scenario in my head really clearly. Charger explaining the situation (usually to Smoker), tying Hunter up in a room, getting her shotgun ready, Smoker trying to find a place to get away, Hunter trying not to be afraid, that kind of thing. Usually around 3:00. :B

33. mind.in.a.box - Fear
You float in a million lights,
but the one you seek is not there.
you fight in a million fights,
but it's yourself you cannot bear.

you think you are a leader,
but you turn everyone away.
you think you are a preacher,
but you can't turn night into day.

there is something inside of me,
and I know that it's growing.
the thing that will forever be,
and I feel its shadow calling.

it is the fear that drives you mad.
it is the fear that makes you blind.
it is the fear that keeps you sad.
it is the fear that kills your mind.

Sort of a downer song more focusing on the lady's problems and flaws with how they relate to each and themselves. They're not HUGELY FLAWED ANGST ANGST people but they do have problems, haha. Mostly insecurities and lies they tell each other/themselves to keep going, and I can also see a variant wherein what they fear is that they aren't really immune after all, and that they might end up changing just like the other zombies around them. Or even that they can feel the process starting, slowly. I DUNNO it can go a few different ways. :B

34. Way Out West - Don't Forget Me
There's just one thing that I need to say
Before I close my eyes and walk away
There's just one thing that I need to feel
Before I walk away against my will

Don't forget me
Don't regret me
Don't suspend me
Don't neglect me

For the not-immune scenario that keeps popping up. Smoker or Hunter having to turn and leave their other half against their will.

35. Vast - My TV And You
it's all i need
it's all i ever needed
until the world is gone
take me how i am 'cause you know i'll never change
i was born to stare
at who stares back at me
if i make it up
to that big show in the sky
all i really want
is my tv and you

Since Smoker and Hunter spend so much time watching TV, haha. Even if she goes down as a survivor, she knows what she wants on the other side.

36. Thomas Newman - Nemo Egg

This is sort of a weird one. One night I was listening to this and I got the strongest urge to do SOMETHING with it. But I couldn't get a clear image or decide on exactly what it was. Them as Survivors and Charger up late as usual keeping watch, thinking about David or her friends, something along those lines maybe.

37. Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
Through these fields of destruction
Baptism of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

Just sort of a quiet song about them as survivors struggling to make their way through. I did a few shots to it here.

AH DANG I FORGOT ONE UGH that's so frustrating. It's all uploaded now so this one'll just have to be a floater.

38. Koji Kondo - Song of Healing

Jockey has a gamer friend named Lorelei which is where she gets all her game related music and knowledge, since she doesn't really play games herself (as mentioned here). She spent a lot of time just watching Lorelei play games, including Majora's Mask. One sad scenario (which you'll see eventually) is Jockey finding Lorelei's body... and in an effort to get her back up, she sings the Song of Healing to her.

Since I forgot this one ARGH I uploaded it to my domain here so you can pick it up individually.

Zip of the Survivor songs - 209 mb

Onward to part two!
