Music for Artemis Fowl Characters

Postby FoalysGirl » Thu Jun 03, 2010 7:59 pm

I don't know if this is appropriate for this topic, please tell me if it isn't. I was just wondering what songs would connect with who in the Artemis Fowl books.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B6JAJVAGC9M

If that song is not Artemis I don't know what is.
"Edwin, what's the plural for Ox?"
"Oxen. The farmer used his oxen."
"Brian,"
"What?"
"What's the plural for box?"
"Boxen! I bought two boxen of doughnuts."

---Brain's stupid in school comedy skit

"I'm the dude, playing the dude, disguised as another dude." ----Tropic Thunder

"Rock, paper, scissors, lizard, Spock." ------ Buffy season 6

"He was like....Napoleon!" ---Me

Ah, no, I don't think it's Artemis Fowl. Besides the bad beat and lyrics, my ears were bleeding, sorry. I suggest these songs:

Artemis Fowl - The Scientist by Coldplay and River Flows in You by Yiruma. Then there are electronic songs...

Holly Short - Paramore songs. Like Brick by Boring Brick.

It's all about the lyrics and their meaning. :smile:
[right]"Why don't we look for some magic stones that can grant wishes? Or, if that doesn't work, you could search my naked body for some mysterious birthmark that means I am actually the prince of somewhere or other." ~ Orion Fowl.

"Huurk." ~Artemis Fowl

"Artemis simpletoon." ~ Myles Fowl

Artemis: Of course. Thinking is my responsibility, not yours. I'm the mastermind here. Holly: Was that an insult, Mud Boy?

I was watching the vid for brick by boring brick. It made me sad at the end when she fell in the hole. ;( I know. I'm a sissy. A crazy, crazy sissy.
Don't blink.

Doctor Who, Artemis Fowl, Harry Potter, Elementary, Torchwood, Starkid, and Homestuck are some of them.

How about Matchbox Twenty's "Unwell" for Artemis during TAC? I think it's so perfect! Also, BBMak's "Always Know Where You Are" pre-TAC and John Rzeznik's "I'm Still Here" for the first few AFs before the transition was complete. Besides these, the soundtrack for Disney's "Treasure Planet" or "Atlantis" (both by James Newton Howard) would be awesome soundtracks. I'm thinking "Atlantis", song 5, "The Leviathan" for that scene in the TAI with the chemical train, "Atlantis" song 17, "Kida Returns" for when Holly goes after Artemis at the end of TTP, and "Treasure Planet" song 16, "Jim Saves the Crew" for the whole airplane climax in TTP - among others. Oh, and "Treasure Planet" song 4, "To The Spaceport" is so the LEP theme it's not even funny. (You can find samples of all these songs on Amazon.com if you type up the CDs ;P)
Also, "My Life Would Suck Without You" is the B.E.S.T. AF/HS "little more than friendship" song E.V.E.R.!! XD XD :loveeyes:

Beethoven is OK too *gets beat up by Schroeder* Scrap that, he's awesome *watches as Schroeder nods in approval* but Mozart is still canon :D
I can totally picture Artemis playing piano versions of Adele songs though, to the point of trying to include it in a crossover fic I'm working on :D

The most perfectly fitting song for Artemis : [+] :lick: (can't get tired of that joke ^^' they do should get this into the movie, even though I think only the fans would laugh ^^')

Here's a whole bunch that someone did on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThkegEaivag

I don't really like Butler's, Root's, or Artemis', but the rest are awesome!

And here's another huge bunch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_T9d5SUyBLQ

I think "Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again" from Phantom of the Opera would be almost perfect for Holly's feelings around Root's death. Especially the lines " You were once a friend and father" and "Why can't the past just die?"
Besides the opera bit, it seems like it was written for TOD.
It's a sad song.
Also, I second the Paramore recommendation for Holly in general.

There's this: http://artemisfowl.fangathering.com/fan ... eme-songs/

I haven't listened to most of the songs recommended there though, so no idea if they fit or not.
I said you were smart, Mud Boy. I was wrong; are exceptional.—Qwan
Which do you think seems more suspicious? An alien-looking craft hovering in the yard of a country home, or a floating doorway with a centaur standing in it?—Domovoi Butler
We can only change the future, not the past or present.—Artemis Fowl II
I'm trying to care, Artemis. But I thought it was all supposed to be over when the fat lady sings. Well, she's singing, but it doesn't appear to be over.—Holly Short

This has nothing to do with music for the characters, but this might go with a scene in one of the books
I am sincerely sorry, I have a huge different taste of music than anyone here (EDM here, One without lyrics c:). I also see that I'm the only male on this topic. Wow :( .
Spoiler:
This one I imagine with the time tunnel in TLC when they're coming back from Hybras
:
https://soundcloud.com/porter-robinson/ ... son-unison

Ok, This one was supposed to go to one of the characters, but I couldn't find one that would match this song:
https://soundcloud.com/monstercat/tut-t ... your-heart

This one might match another scene at the book. Some of the lyrics are irrelevant to this scene.
https://soundcloud.com/monstercat/nitro ... me-with-me
(TLG SPOILERS)
Spoiler:
This I guess would go in TLG when Holly finds out about Artemis' plan that involves sacrificing himself.
