Music that reminds you of Metroid:

Postby -ChozoChild- » 10.22.09 12:26am

In case your confused about the subject, I'm talking about music that you might hear on the radio, or on a CD.
This is not Metroid game music or themes, but songs and/or lyrics that remind you of Metroid in some way.

For example, the song you want to share may reflect your view on how Samus sounds like.
The lyrics to the song might make you think of an event that happened in the games, and the music might resemble a Metroid melody somehow.


You don't have to have all these things, just share the song(s) or lyrics that remind you of Metroid.
I created this thread for fun and to share our thoughts, tastes and experiences of music and the way we view it towards Metroid.
If this thread has been done before your more then welcome to delete it. xD

I guess I'll go 1st. ;3

Band/Group: Keane
Album/CD: Hopes and Fears
Track Title: Untitled 1

Lyrics (optional):

A house on fire
A wall of stone
A door that once was open
An empty face and empty bones
Who ate your heart?
You're cold inside
You're not the one I hoped for
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

The wind wouldn't blow me home
To lie in your heart of hearts
Will I ever see you again
And lie in your heart of hearts

Who ate your heart?
You're cold inside
You're not the one I hoped for
I'll see you on the other side
I'll see you on the other side

The wind wouldn't blow me home
To lie in your heart of hearts
Will I ever see you again
And lie in your heart of hearts




Link to Song (optional): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S1UIofnCuNA

Reason(s) why it reminds me of Metroid:
* At the start and the end of the track, the music reminds me of Prime 1.

* The lyrics remind of Samus speaking toward her foes, "Who ate your heart? Your cold inside."
The other part reminds me of Dark Samus replying back you her, "You're not the one I hoped for
I'll see you on the other side
" like she entering the dark portal... I love it.

*The last bit of lyrics, "Will I ever see you again
And lie in your heart of hearts?"
made me think of Samus as little girl and running up toward the Chozo.
That 'To lie in your heart of hearts' reminds me of going into morfball and rolling into a Chozo statue.
Likewise the 'An empty face and empty bones' was Dark Samus to me. The door that once was open, ... now became locked notifying a boss battle.
That's how I viewed it anyway. xD

I really love this song, it's both haunting and happy with a hint of eerie... I hope you all understand why it reminds me of Metroid. <3

Band/Group: The Cars
Album/CD: The Cars Greatest Hits
Track Title: I'm Not the One
Lyrics (optional):
Link to Song (optional): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a_HpVbD1_Ao
Reason(s) why it reminds me of Metroid: I was listening to my Cars CD some years ago while playing Super Metroid and this song came up while I was in the room in Brinstar Pink with the two small sidehoppers and one large sidehopper and you have to spin on a single grapple block to get past the wall... and it made me laugh and has reminded me of that ever since.

Ever since it's made some crazy sort of sense to me. :awesome:

Wow, that's really neat. I love how that song sounds like 8-bit music, awesome! xD
"...Round and round... I can't get outta it!" --'do a barrel roll', sorry I couldn't help it. lol.

Forgive the video embed.
Nyuyo by Iannis Xenakis.

In fact, pretty much anything by Iannis Xenakis.



As well, Harmonies by Gyorgy Ligeti does a great job of capturing Metroid atmosphere. The same can also be said of anything by Ligeti; the man knows how to craft an excellent atmosphere from sound.


In both cases, they capture the lonely feeling pretty damn well, without lyrics coming in and saying "oh we're lonely"
must be some sorta side effect of the hatchling or maybe she should stop going down on Miyamoto.

Band/Group: myrtorp
Album/CD: None
Track Title: Intense Dark
Lyrics (optional): None
Link to Song (optional): Intense Dark
Reason(s) why it reminds me of Metroid: The opening reminds me of Metroid. It just has that kind of feeling of space, and the first thing that came to my mind was the scene in Metroid Prime where it's showing Tallon IV and Frigate Orpheon.

Okay if that doesn't sound exactly like Ridley's lair in Super Metroid than I don't know what does.

Also that song by The Cars sounds like it could easily be played over the end credits to the original Metroid.

My turn.

Band/Group: The Seatbelts
Album/CD: Cowboy Bebop
Track Title: Rain

Lyrics:

I don't feel a thing
and I stopped remembering
The days are just like moments turned to hours

Mother used to say
If you want, you'll find a way
Bet mother never danced through fire shower

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Is it right or is it wrong
and is it here that I belong

I don't hear a sound
Silent faces in the ground
The quiet screams, but I refused to listen

If there is a hell
I'm sure this is how it smells
Wish this were a dream, but no, it isn't

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Am I right or am I wrong
and is it here that I belong

Walk in the rain, in the rain, in the rain
I walk in the rain, in the rain
Why do I feel so alone
For some reason I think of home

Reasons why it reminds me of Metroid: Moody, atmospheric, memorable, very unique, (hell, It has a church organ accompanied by an electric guitar,) plus the lyrics completley match up with what Samus must be feeling as she moves through the caverns of an alien world. Oh, and it's done the The Seatbelts. Which automatically makes it AWESOME.

I agree, we need to find a happier song. That song by The Cars worked nicely for me.

I've heard that Cowboy Bebob one before. I love the music. I can see why it reminded you of Samus, Will.

Not a song, exactly, but Robert Frost's Fire and Ice reminds me of Metroid.

"Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice."

Reason(s) why it reminds me of Metroid: Listen to it, just once. Then try and come up with ways in which it DOESN'T remind you of metroid.

Wow. This music is really creepy. It reminds me of 2001 a Space Odyssey.
I can see why it reminds you of Metroid. I can vision this music playing in the background in Planet Phaze. This is so haunting...

Ooooh, this one always gets me:

Dandy Warhols - You Come in Burned
Reminds me of Metroid 2 for some reason.

Track Title: Never Let this Go
Lyrics (optional):
Link to Song (optional):http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7dJNVzhIb8
Reason(s) why it reminds me of Metroid: The opening reminds me of the battle with thardus. And the rest of the song feels like the warring feelings I imagine Samus is going through. 


Also, there is this song called Conspiracy also by Paramore. I will get more into that later.
