Songs that remind you of the Monkey Island series

posted by Debbie82 on - last edited - Viewed by 1.7K users

So what are your songs that remind you of the Monkey Island series? Me, I'm going with "She's Like Heroin" by System Of A Down, because some lyrics remind me of Elaine's craziness in the courthouse and elsewhere in ToMI Chapter 4, and of Guybrush being forced to wear a dress so he can come to Elaine's party (and probably charm her) in Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge. :D

    Oh, and here are the lyrics for "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing":

    [Lyrics]

    Yeah, the lyrics would fit perfectly if Guybrush and Morgan were lovers, but the weren't; so I'm afraid only sections of the lyrics fit the moment. If it were Elaine who was dying, then it would work completely.

  • How about "I Do (Cherish You)" (the 98 Degrees cover of Mark Willis' song)? Kind of reminds me of the marriage of Elaine Marley to Guybrush Threepwood at the end of Curse of Monkey Island.

    All I am, all I'll be;
    Everything in this world,
    All that I'll ever need,
    Is in your eyes
    Shining at me.
    When you smile I can feel
    All my passion unfolding.
    Your hand brushes mine,
    And a thousand sensations
    Seduce me 'cause I...

    [Chorus]
    I do cherish you.
    For the rest of my life
    You don't have to think twice.
    I will love you still.
    From the depths of my soul
    It's beyond my control.
    I've waited so long to say this to you.
    If you're asking, do I love you this much?
    I do.

    In my world, before you,
    I lived outside my emotions,
    Didn't know where I was going;
    'Til that day I found you,
    How you opened my life
    To a new paradise
    In a world torn by change.
    Still with all of my heart
    'Til my dying day...
    [To Chorus]

    Yeah, that would be awesome... but the chorus really reminds me of the end of chapter 4. Like he doesn't want to die (close my eyes,fall asleep, etc) because he would miss Elaine a lot. To bad this is a family game so he can't cheat on Elain :rolleyes:

    Oh, you were referring to Guybrush's death scene. Duh! For some reason I thought you were talking about Morgan's death scene. I don't know why I got that notion, you didn't even mention Morgan.

    Well, yes then, I agree, the song fits that moment perfectly.

    And, by the way, for good measure, I am not one of the people who wanted Guybrush to cheat on Elaine with Morgan; I would prefer Guybrush to stay with Elaine.

  • Sorry, gotta bring this up.

    How about "Chicken Huntin'" by Insane Clown Posse? Reminds me of Plunder Island's Puerto Pollo and its chickens, and Captain Blondebeard's hunt for the vengeful chicken called "El Pollo Diablo". Here's the chorus:

    Who's goin' chicken huntin'?
    We's goin' chicken huntin'!
    Who's goin' chicken huntin'?
    We's goin' chicken huntin'!
    Who's goin' chicken huntin'?
    We's goin' chicken huntin'!
    Cut a motherf***ing chicken up, right!

  • The first 18 secs of this song remind me of the Voodoo lady music from Curse.
    My little brother was the one who stated this to me and he doesn't even like MI.

    Pendulum's Fasten Your Seatbelt sounds like a techno LeChuck theme.

  • How about "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan? You know... it sometimes fits the part about Elaine cradling Guybrush in her arms and trying to console him near the end of ToMI Chapter 4.

    Spend all your time waiting
    For that second chance,
    For a break that would make it okay.
    There's always one reason
    To feel not good enough,
    And it's hard at the end of the day.
    I need some distraction.
    Oh beautiful release;
    Memory seeps from my veins.
    Let me be empty
    And weightless and maybe
    I'll find some peace tonight.

    [Chorus]
    In the arms of an angel
    Fly away from here,
    From this dark cold hotel room
    And the endlessness that you fear.
    You are pulled from the wreckage
    Of your silent reverie.
    You're in the arms of the angel;
    May you find some comfort there.

    So tired of the straight line,
    And everywhere you turn,
    There's vultures and thieves at your back.
    And the storm keeps on twisting;
    You keep on building the lie
    That you make up for all that you lack.
    It don't make no difference
    Escaping one last time;
    It's easier to believe
    In this sweet madness, oh,
    This glorious sadness
    That brings me to my knees.
    [To Chorus]

  • Slightly off-topic, but the song "Live" by Paul and Storm reminds me of DeathSpank every time I hear it.
