Hi lovlies, this is exactly what the title suggest -- a song or theme inspired by our characters.
I've had a super productive (read as: procrastinatory) weekend, sooooo I've actually come up with a song for one of everyone's character. Please feel free to add your own (and let me know if anyone has been looked over!
Enjoy and happy listening! xx
Abby -- @daisybird
I Need A Hero -- Jennifer Saunders
Dramatic remake of a classic song for a dramatic and classy cat. Daisybird knows how to flaunt it, and definitely seeking a charasmatic tom to prove that chivalry isn't dead. Also, she could be a young, cat version of Jennifer Saunders.
Airabelle -- @duskwolf
Carry On Wayward Son -- Kansas
Okay, probably cheating because Duskpaw is the 'Sam' to Dawnpaw's 'Dean', but still such a powerful (and classic!) song. The instrumentals make me imagine the boys hunting and training together, preparing to fight for the good of the clan. Especially Duskpaw, leading the way into the future.
asmodenny - @atlanta
Bring Me Flowers -- Hope
A sweet, breathy song for a sweet, timid cat. There's something I find earthy about Atlanta and this song; it reminds me of the sweet anticipation and uncertainty at the start of a relationship, and then watching it blossom into something magical.
BECCA -- @bluestorm
Run the World (Girls) -- Beyonce
I ♥ strong, independent women. And women supporting women. Bluestorm is fierce and determined with a good heart. She is still trying to establish herself in the world; her sharp mind will take her to great places, and she needs a strong, wicked anthem. Thanks, Queen Bey.
Blossom -- @honeystep
Worry -- Jack Garratt
Here is a tom in an impossible position. Honeystep is being torn in nearly ever direction: picking up the pieces of his broken clan; torn between duty, loyalty, and friendship with his leader; being a supportive mate and father. The tom is navigating a hostile situation with every pawstep, around every bend. Certainly, Honeystep has a lot to worry about, but he manages to keep pushing forward.
Caitria -- @silverwater
Hometown Glory -- Adele
It feels like this medicine cat has grown up overnight. I imagine Silverwater growing up and wanting to explore the world to help her better understand the calling of being a medicine cat, and eventually returning to settle down in her position transformed.... like having a young heart and an old soul.
CallMeWren -- @ottertail
Little Lion Man -- Mumford and Sons
The way the Marcus Mumford says, "I really f*cked it up this time" makes me imagine Ottertail just shrugging his shoulders and accepting his attitude. He's embraced who he is and his grumpy-old-man cat. And doesn't have time to care about what anyone thinks about that. So he is more than happy to accept if something is his fault; he won't waste time being indirect or softening the blow.
Charlie ★ -- @featherstep
Go The Distance -- Shawn Hook & KHS
THIS version of the Disney classic!! I relate it to Featherstep trying to push forward and trying to find her way. Shaking off the family drama and expectation she has grown up with and becoming a warrior in her own right, and on her own terms.
darksailor7 -- @tigerfang
Redbone -- Childish Gambino
So so soooo catchy! It's just the right amount of seductive and dark to draw you in. Kind of like Tigerpaw. Although she's outspoken, there's something lingering behind her eyes.
Dragon -- @blackspirit
Runaway -- Kanye West
Here is a young she-cat with a lot of feelings. She's very opinionated for a cat her age, and I dare say jaded. The keys of the piano contrasting the subject of the lyrics seem to convey the duality of Blackpaw: a cat that wants true love to be real but has seen too many failed relationships to actually believe in it.
intoxicatedghost -- @yang
Another Love (Zwette Edit) -- Tom Edell
The beat to this version of 'Another Love' really emphasise and punctuate the lyrics for me. I imagine them conveying any of Yang's pent-up frustration considering she is deaf: "words they always win, but I know I'll lose"...
Jackson -- @moontalon
Sonata No. 14, Op. 27, No. 2 (
Okay, so it was definitely Moontalon's name that prompted this one... a beautiful piece of music for a beautiful cat.
Jester -- @littlesheep
Say Something -- A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera
Another tear-jerker, this takes me to that fateful gathering when Littlesheep was mauled and the entire world shifted. She was such a small but commanding presence; I imagine this song playing in a movie-style montage as Littlesheep watches her sweetheart from StarClan in the immediate wake of her passing. Desperately wanting what is best for her clan and soulmate but not necessarily enjoying what she is seeing. Acknowledging and understanding but having her own heart breaking a second time, beyond the grave.
Jinn -- @sparrowstep
Stay With Me -- Sam Smith
This song always hits me in the feels (it makes me cry in the car if I'm driving alone) and takes me places... like Morningstar, Sparrowstep is another tom that has a huge heart and trying to deal with a lot of conflicting emotions and responsibilites. This song makes me think of Sparrowstep, especially moving forward from his heartbreakng relationship with his beloved leader. When you want something, someone, more than anything, but life has other plans.
Kenya -- @rabbitface
Elastic Heart -- Sia
I just want Rabbitface to meet a cat that will treat her right. If anyone deserves to ride off into the sunset with her sweetheart, it's Rabbitface. She's been through nearly every form of heartbreak, but keeps holding on. She picks up the pieces every time and continues to put her family's well being before her own. Rabbitface has an incredible amount of emotional endurance and I just want her to be happy.
luka -- @cloudfang
The Middle -- Jimmy Eat World
This little tom has had his confidence shaken too early in his life... I just want to tell Cloudkit that everything will be alright! It will take time and effort, but he's going to make a fantastic warrior one day. Of course, it's always easier said than done.
marshymutt -- @stoneheart
Somebody to Love -- Anne Hathaway
Again, another cover that I prefer over the original. The lyrics don't need any explanation. There's a giant softie underneath all of that grey fur, and Stoneheart is ready to share his heart with the right cat. Also, it's a super catchy song and I want to read a gushy and drawn out romance for Stoneheart!
Midnight.Traitor -- @autumnleaf
Somewhere Only We Know -- Lily Allen
Autumnpaw is growing up so quickly and having to face a lot of life full-on. She's navigating life as a budding apprentice on top of the emotional landscape of learning about her family. I just want to protect her from the harshness of life and have her live happily ever after with her family! For me, the song represents Autumnpaw finding herself and establishing her history so she can move forward with strong roots and blossom!
Nami -- @ashflame
Cups -- Anna Kendrick
Ashkit is daring and determined: the perfect combination for any adventurer. She's already proven to have wandering paws and a fighting spirit, brave in the face of uncertainty, and I can only hope that this won't change! She's going to see the world, whether anyone approves of it or not.
neperooni -- @ivyleaf
Bloodstone -- Guy Sebastian
Ivyleaf needed a more upbeat song. There doesn't seem to be a lot that gets her down; she beats to her own quirky, daring drum. She's not submissive and will follow things through to the end, for better or for worse.
Parker -- @lightshard
Kids -- MGMT
Okay, this song immediately came to mind because kits just freaking love Lightshard!
though I didn't link to official video because the intro freaks me out...On a deeper level, I think it conveys how adaptable he is. Enduring various situations and taking what he needs from it.
Rogue -- @oakwhisker
Numb/Encore -- Linkin Park/Jay-z
Two different genres mixed to create an incredible mash-up. To me, it represents the duality of Oakwhisker's character: he can love and hate with equal intensity. Also, it's catchy and Oakwhisker has great taste.
Sans -- @morningsky
My Way - Frank Sinatra
The song immediately makes me think of the kind-hearted tom that just wants to do good, but life seemed to have other plans. Through thick and thin, Morningstar has tried his best to follow his heart and do best by his clan. A bittersweet swan-song by a man who has stuck by his morals and will no doubt immortalise him. Also, this song is swoon-worthy and smooth, just like Morningstar.
sakuratree -- @darkminnow
Blank Space -- Taylor Swift
Soooooo other than being one of my favourite songs of all time, here's another strong, fierce, independent female that does what she wants, because she wants it. With her strong attitude, I admire how Darkminnow unapologetically takes what she wants.
@seven --@ littleminnow
Send Me On My Way -- Rusted Root
Sooo admittedly, I don't know much about this new kit on the block. But he sounds so... spirited! And everyone needs an inspirational start
Shimizu -- @pheasantwing
Upside Down -- Jack Johnson
An upbeat song for an upbeat cat! Pheasantkit is just so... wholesome and likeable! She seizes everyday and every opportunity because she can definitely tries to make the most our of every situation.
Spotty -- @spottedpelt
I'll Be There For You -- The Remembrants
Spottedpelt is the kind of character that will be there for her friends, for better or for worse. She's sweet, outgoing, and has a sharp sense of humour. Tbh, she reminds me of Rachel a little bit.
Tiny -- @bearheart
I Just Can't Wait to be King
Entitled young prince wanting to rule his father's territory... Simba and Bearpaw are practically the same cat.
Tygerz -- @dawnstrike
Harder Than Stone -- City and Colour
I imagine Dawnpaw trying to balance the weight of her own expectation and the daunting fact that her clan is falling apart around her. Even though she's ambitious and a leader in her own right, I think the fact she's the daughter of a ForestClan leader will affect her decisions later in life she's ever faced to chose between her heart and her head.
Wingto -- @batfang
Smells Like Teen Spirit -- Nirvana
Batfang reminds me of an 19-year-old university freshman: definitely a young adult with few responsibilities and enjoying his first real taste of 'freedom'. Just starting to see the world, he is still naive and doesn't feel any strong pull of responsibility. That smells like teen spirit to me...
Wyrd -- @lilyheart
Once Upon A Dream -- Lana Del Rey
This version of the dreamy love song is haunting and makes my skin crawl slightly; it's perfect for the StormClan queen. She's completely in-love and devoted to her (soul) mate but definitely unhinged. Her romantic attachment seems to simultaneously tether her to reality and push her towards insanity. Haunting, beautiful, mad, Lilyheart.
xeno -- @darkmist
Light of the Seven -- Ramin Djawadi
Goosebumps. Every time. This piece has stuck with me since I first heard it; similarily, I feel in love with Darkpaw the second I read her biography. She has immense potential and I can hardly wait to see where life takes her. With her inherent charisma and competitive nature, Darkpaw will certainly be a powerful cat when she's older.
Taetae -- @opal
Better Man -- Pearl Jam
Opal does his best to provide for his mate and his growing family; he's trying to be better for everyone in his life.
