What songs do you think will be good in the move?

The Artemis Fowl Movie is coming... On the 26th July 2013, Disney, in association with Harvey Weinstein, announced that a movie covering the events of the first two books was finally in the works!

Wow, yeah, that is really good from Artemis' perspective!

I just don't know if we really want songs with lyrics in the movie...I mean, possibly in the credits, but I don't know how well that would go with the feel of the rest of the movie.

I think there shouldent be songs in the movie, exept the credits. and during the credits, I think the song 'call me Artemis Fowl' should be on. I mean, it was written about him. it describes him best.. I dont see any reason why not...
Hi people.
I have something very important to tell you.
But now I forgot what it was.
Maybe I'll remember later. who knows.
If I will, I'll be sure to write it. So..... Yeah.
Dismissed. Carry on.

Songs in music do work, There's countless of songs with lyrics in movie, but yeah we could reserve it for the credits. Call me Artemis Fowl iI think it should be the second song after any graphic art credits because AF ends with his mother being restored to sanity- I really do hope the capture the emotion of that, including Artemis's pain about his mum
Nvm, I heard they're blending the first and second, i wish they didn't... Just because... More movies! :P
And oh yeah- THE FEAR by lily Allen just sums up little Artemis. Not really, but it could still work.
Anyways, if we've going to have a wordless soundtrack, I call HANS ZIMMER. he's simply the best. (inception, spirit, Kung Fu panda1&2) or Danny elfman, simply cause he wrote the corpse bride theme, and it's good.
Or John Williams

Yeah, I mean, I agree that some songs during the credits wouldn't be too bad, but like you said, they would have to fit with the tone of the movie. And I kind of think Call me Artemis Fowl is a little too lighthearted and goofy...But actually now that I think about it, I kind of agree that maybe as the last song of the credits it could work (that way, only the hard core fans would stick around anyway, and people who've never heard of it wouldn't be like "what the heck is this?!")

I think there could be some songs to put in the movie, but they can't just appeal to just americans or our english cousins across the pond, no that would be wrong.
what with artemis being who he is and he enjoys classical music, there should be a lot of it in the movie,
but what with Butler being an action master, there has to be rock or something fast paced enough.
I guess there has to be a lot of different genres in the movie to make it diverse enough.

I think something by Adele would be perfect (maybe I'm just a little biased, being a huge fan) but with a full orchestra backing her she would show both the emotion and the 'classier' side of AF!

I also love Adele, but I really don't think there should be singing in the movie...

Well, singing might not suit some parts of the movie, but it would have more listener appeal in general- but there should be at least one full-orchestra instrumental. Or maybe piano?

I think they could insert a few strains of Michael Londra's "Artemis", and have it play over the credits. They could add Celtic music when Holly flies over Ireland.

I've always pictured rock songs for the fairies, as their are the ones who bring most of the action.
For Holly, Cannonballfrom the Breeders when she flies and Spellboundfrom Siouxsie & The Banshees when she gets her magic back ; the lyrics of Born to fight by Tracy Chapman also fit perfectly to her personality. I'd also love to see The Righteous & The Wicked from the Red Hot Chili Peppers when the fairies prepare to attack the Fowl Manor, because that way you can interprete the lyrics in several ways : the righteous would be the fairies, the wicked Artemis and the mother earth could be a metaphore for Holly imprisonned. But it can also refer to Commander Root and Cudgeon. Guadalcanal Diary's T.R.O.U.B.L.E (can't find it on Youtube) would be funny for Grub (in the lyrics it even says ''I'm gonna tell mama'' XD but I'm not sure the whippin' part would fit, unless Colfer reveals in an interview that Grub is actually fond of BDSM), and I'd love to ear My Blood Is Burning, by Yodelice (a French artist, cocorico !), for Trouble Kelp !

About the humans, actually I've always associated them with specific instruments. Angeline would be piano, as she can be both soft and fragile and also furious and imprevisible when she gets insane. The best would be some Erik Satie piano songs, like the Danses de travers, or one of the Gnossiennes (my favourite is the fifth one, but I recommand to listen to all of his works :3). And Artemis would be personalized by strings, especially cello. I can't explain, it's just totally him to me. But even though I'd like ''his'' tracks to be strings, I don't think it should be classical, but rock and metal remixes. The absolute reference : Apocalyptica ! My favourites from this band : Nothing Else Matters and Fade to Black.

Butler is a bit of particular case, since he's often involved in action scenes like the fairies. I've always pictured the troll fighting scene with Primitive Notion from New Order (the bass line in this song, aaaaaah *O*). But nonetheless I think he deserves some softer songs in some occasions. For the
Spoiler:
death
scene in the Eternity Code, a slow, melodic and melancholic theme would be way more moving than any big orchestra instrumental. When I read it, my mind flickers between Faure's Pavane and, in a totally different style, Black Sands by Bonobo. The latest being my favourite.

In general, the songs/musics I love and would like to ear in the movie :
* Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune - Claude Debussy (his piano works would be a great feat for Angeline too, like Rêveries or Nuages)
* Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - U2
* Lips of Steel - Guadalcanal Diary ; for another fairy flying moment, or a chasing in the underground tunnels maybe.
And if Minerva appears, there MUST be an extract of The Cunning Little Vixen at some point. It just has to.

I'm forgetting a lot of all the songs and musics that flows into my mind when I dream of an Artemis Fowl Movie soundtrack, but that's already enough stuff to listen to for the moment ^^'

Would the music at the beginning and end of the audiobooks be of any use?
