Songs that remind you of the Monkey Island series

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

  • this doesnt count, but whenever i go to my bathroom, the squeak on the door reminds me of the song at stan's shipyard

  • How about I don't want to miss a thing by Aerosmith, I't reminds my of the ending of chapter 4 when Guybrush is closing his eyes.

    Great song by one of my all-time favourite bands! It's never reminded me of MI though. But now that you mention it, it does sort of fit that scene.

    I demand a recording!

    now that's gonna be difficult, its a quiet squeak... just listen to the first second of music from that scene, and that's essentially what you got!

    Don't worry, I didn't actually want a recording :). Alright, I'll listen to it sometime soon. The same sort of things happen to me - random noises will remind me of songs that I listen to often; it's quite strange, but cool.

    yeah. like, my air conditioner for some reason reminds me of Ana Ng? (a song)

  • Anyway, previous mini-conversation aside, for some reason the opening bass part of Judas Priest's "The Rage" always reminds me of the Melee Island forest. I'm not exactly sure why... I guess it sounds a tiny bit like the forest's in-game music, but hardly.

  • To Hayden and seson3churious, don't forget that "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" was also used in the soundtrack to the motion picture Armageddon.

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

    I could stay awake just to hear you breathing;
    Watch you smile while you are sleeping
    While you're far away dreaming.
    I could spend my life in this sweet surrender.
    I could stay lost in this moment forever.
    Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.

    [Chorus]
    Don't want to close my eyes;
    I don't want to fall asleep,
    'Cause I'd miss you baby,
    And I don't want to miss a thing.
    'Cause even when I dream of you,
    The sweetest dream will never do.
    I'd still miss you baby,
    And I don't want to miss a thing.

    Lying close to you feeling your heart beating.
    And I'm wondering what you're dreaming,
    Wondering if it's me you're seeing.
    Then I kiss your eyes
    And thank God we're together.
    I just want to stay with you in this moment forever.
    Forever and ever.
    [To Chorus]

    I don't want to miss one smile.
    I don't want to miss one kiss.
    I just want to be with you,
    Right here with you, just like this.
    I just want to hold you close,
    Feel your heart so close to mine,
    And just stay here in this moment
    For all the rest of time.
    [To Chorus and repeat]

  • An obvious choice...

    Just read the lyrics ... and hmmm ... see if you can find out what the song's about.

    three trials before you leave the shore:
    mastering the sword,
    learn the art of thievery
    and find treasures galore

    get a ship and a crew of three
    and search the foreign lands
    and when the wind of hell embraces thee
    you'll gain the idol of many hands

    a black sky above, our kingdom beneath
    die in the waves or live on your knees

    come, raise the flag of the fallen
    we reign the storm and the seas
    and live our lives on the brink of death
    WE'RE PIRATES! and we are free

    Prove your courage and touch the gruesome winged devil
    trust the navigator's head
    for all the rum and grog don't forget to revel
    for tomorrow you could be dead

    and beware of falling in love at all
    or your heart will beat inside a chest
    'guess you figured it out - what I recall 's
    another story from another quest

    a black sky above, our kingdom beneath
    die in the waves or live on your knees

    come, raise the flag of the fallen
    we reign the storm and the seas
    and live our lives on the brink of death
    WE'RE PIRATES! and we are free

    come, raise the flag of the fallen
    we reign the storm and the seas
    and live our lives on the brink of death
    WE'RE PIRATES! and we are free

    That's the most obvious one. Aside from that, pretty much any pirate-themed song by RUNNING WILD!
