The title will make more sense after reading the post. So I talked about this not too long ago, but for a while now I've joked that I'm “musically psychic.” By that I mean, it seems like sometimes I'll randomly think of a song that I haven't heard in a long time, and then I'll randomly hear it. Or, maybe I’ll have a song stuck in my head and it will randomly come up. Mostly separate from that, but similar, I mentioned some other Music-related coincidences that occurred when I was trying to get in contact with Pan. I wondered if they might have something to do with him, but ultimately I figured they were just coincidences. That would normally be the end of it, and I still believe it's all down to coincidence, but two things happened in the past few days that definitely shook that belief. First, if you scroll back a couple posts you'll see that I've been listening to the song “Heavy” a whole lot, and noting how much I relate to it. So, on Friday, I was in a really bad mood because of things going on at work. During my lunch break, I went to Dunkin Donuts. And the exact moment I sat down, “Heavy” started playing on the radio. I know it's a new song so radio play isn't that shocking, but sadly Linkin Park doesn't get much of it these days, and the timing was uncanny. I'll note that “Pan” thinks I'm remembering wrong and it wasn't that exact, but at the very least it was pretty darn close. It was the song I needed right when I needed it. The next one occurred the very next day, on Saturday. Early in the morning I watched two song clips from Glee: “Uptown Girl” and “I Want You Back.” Not so odd, because I have been watching those clips a lot lately. Later in the day I went to my local tabletop gaming store to meet up with my friends for a tabletop RPG. Just shortly after I sat down, I noticed “Uptown Girl” playing in the store. This was odd not just because it was stuck in my head from listening to it that morning, but also because it isn't the kind of music they usually play there. Later on, during the RPG, you guessed it: “I Want You Back” started playing. Again, not their usual type of music at all. Now look, I realize that these are still things that can and do fall into the realm of coincidence. But Geez, two (or should I say three?) big ones in a row like that does make me think, especially as I had just started talking about Pan again. Odds are it's nothing, but I do want to explore the possibilities anyway. Consider it a thought experiment; these are just ideas. The first idea is, all these music coincidences, or at least the recent ones, are signs from Pan. The support for that would be that he is connected with music, fauns are connected with music, and it would be a good subtle way to send such a message. The songs in question also happen to fit well with the question I was focused on regarding Pan, which is the question of what kind of relationship we might have had in my past life. The other idea is that there is some sort of psychic thing happening. In general I don't really believe in such things, at least for myself, but it wouldn't be the first I'd heard of it. My mom legitimately believes that she is slightly psychic, and she doesn't usually give such ideas the time of day. And I know it is something that has been discussed here. If I'm right that my affinity with music is connected to my kin type, this kind of thing might make some sense. But yeah, most likely it's coincidence. I just can't help but wonder about other possibilities, and I'm curious what others think about them.
I don't know whether this fits here or what, however after listening to some of my favorite songs; I noticed. On YouTube videos, the lyrics are generally different than what I had perceived, Most if not all of what I had come up was rather, meh. Weird. A few were, Gorillaz- feel good, I thought they were saying 'Milk Dud'. ._. As well as 'Santa's breaking down on a camels back' and another that is a bit inappropriate to state. >.< Fallout Boy- My songs know what you did in the dark- It sounds like they are saying, 'Ham- chicken- ham- chicken- ham- ham- chicken- banana' in the beginning, perhaps I was hungry when I clicked on that song but that is what I heard. Lol. As well as a few others, however I am starting to get lazy, What are some misconceptions you have had with song lyrics? :) ~ Devagraha
In the spirit of the kintype songs thread, I thought I'd make one that's more specific to each individual. As I was trying to pick songs for the other thread, it struck me that some of the ones I wanted to use weren't necessarily kintype songs. Rather, they were something deeper, being related to our system and ourselves as beings. Hence the idea. The thread does lend itself more toward plurals/systems, but even non-plurals can still post their own personal themesongs. If anyone has any questions about why a certain song applies, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm just too tired to write it all out right now, nor do I want to clutter things more. When posting yours, feel free to explain the meaning or mention if you'd rather leave them open to questions. Note: All of these are actual links to the music/videos in question. There's a limit of five embedded pieces of media per post, even when behind spoiler tags, so I just decided to keep it uniform. System-Wide: Ken Ashcorp - Shut up and Trust This Yumi Kawamura & Lotus Juice - Light the Fire Up in the Night - Dark Hour (Extended) Ken Ashcorp - Crazy Chicks | ( ) Zen: Hirata Shihoko - Reach Out to the Truth -in Mayonaka Arena- Shoji Meguro - Youthful Spirit (I must point out that Weird Al is wrong about Oxford commas. Use them. :bookwolf:) Shouei: Shoji Meguro - Battle for Everyone's Souls ~USH ver.~ (shown with the wrong title in the video, no idea why) It's really difficult for me to find music that fits Shouei well. There's something about him that trips me up, I suppose. I might add some more, if I can remember or come across any that work. :angryfox: Gazen: (The official video captures Gazen rather well, but I don't think I should post it here, due to possible content issues.) Shoji Meguro - A Fool or Clown Shoji Meguro - The Joker
