Subject: Song list from the game #1 - #20 (LONG)

Please let me know if you want any of these :)
To see the pictures with the songs - visit the site

Track 1


Mahabharata Soundtrack

Draupadi is a key female figure in Indian mythology, she is, to most, the perfect woman - strong willed, devoted, intelligent and beautiful. Easily, in my mind, someone who could have worn the blade.

Track 2

Prelude for Meditation

Composer: John Cage
Performer: Stephen Drury

The reason I selected this song was because of this poem by the composer John Cage. It seemed to me to reflect the way Joan felt about being chosen by her God to lead.

Track 3

Free at Last

Barry Adamson from Moss Side Story

All who know me - knew I had to have me a little Barry lovin' in the game. He is my all time fav.

I picked Free at Last as a compliment to Kenny dying. It seemed to me as if Kenny wanted to leave the battle as the victor, dead or alive. So in dying, his victory was to widen the split between love and hate in Ian's mind. The elation at the beginning of the song is the joy that he still won - the turn at the end of the song is the knowledge that he will not be physically around to enjoy the win.

I don't believe that Kenny was supposed to live in the end - and that TPTB had to improvise at the end of the show to please the fans. We're happy about that, but did he really have to come back as a thug still? Where oh where is my Jazz Devil. Sniff... Sniff...

Track 4

Can We Fix It?

Cast of Bob the Builder

Well... what can I say - Kenny saw the future and now he wants to fix it :)

A little bit of my silly side coming out.

Track 5

L' Enfant Roi(The Child King)

Noir Desir

One of the reasons I love Kenny is his Enfant Terrible attitude. He doesn't want to be God, he just assumes his is God. Song from Nabil.


Track 6


Bowie, Philip Glass & Brian Eno

Rumor was Bowie wrote the song because he saw two lovers standing by the Berlin Wall. Really, he saw Tony Visconti (then married) and Antonia Maass kissing by the Wall.

My reason for choosing this song - I think in Kenny's mind, he is embarking on a relationship with Sara (the mistress) while his wife, the Blade, watches. Ian is the observer.

Track 7

A Well Respected Man

The Kinks

This one was easy...

And he's oh, so good,
And he's oh, so fine,
And he's oh, so healthy,
In his body and his mind.
He's a well respected man about town,
Doing the best things so conservatively.

Track 8

Hey Joe

Jimmy Hendrix

Really... no other reason than these two - Jimmy is God and Yancy's dad is named Joe.

Track 9

Dirty Deeds


Well... it WAS a dirty deed...

Track 10

Natural Born Killers Soundtrack - Sex Is Violent

Jane’s Addiction & Diamanda Galas

I'm happy Kenny is getting a little... but with her? Ewwww.


Track 11

Digging Your Scene 

Blow Monkeys

And I'm so disappointed that you 80's kids missed this one...

Track 12


Barry Adamson from Moss Side Story

Yes more Barry - I love this man. This one was for DL ;)

I picked this one because I love the primal feel of the beat, the raw energy, and the eclectic mix of styles. The song reflects for me the workings of Kenny's mind when he bonds with the Lance.

Track 13

Songs in Red and Gray

Suzanne Vega 

TPTB may have forgotten Elizabeth, but I didn't. I selected this song as a reflection of the relationship between Kenny and Elizabeth. She is the red leaf (life) on the cool gray stone (Kenny & death)

the reproach in your daughter's most beautiful face -
made me wonder just how she could know of that something that happened between you and me -
so much more than a long time ago


Track 14

Stairway to Heaven 

Dolly Parton 

Grey said it best "You seek to taunt Etebari by defiling the Holiest of Holy Led Zep songs". Why yes I do... WaaaHaaaHaaaa.

Track 15

Sacred Revelation 


Picked for when Sara bonds with the blade. I liked the combination of the music styles into one song - it reflects for me all of the previous wearers joining as one in Sara.

Track 16

The Title 

Powaqqatsi, Life in Transformation Soundtrack - Philip Glass

po.waq.qatsi (from the Hopi language), n. 1. sorcerer life, an entity, a way of life that consumes the life forces of other beings in order to further its own life.

In my little mind - the transference of spirit from the girl to the blade. Another from Nabil.

Track 17

The Red Stare - To Live and Die in L.A. soundtrack

Wang Chung (really)

So why... I pick this song for this moment because Ian destroying the painting of Kenny foreshadows a his own possible death in the last show (sword though the neck). This mirrors a scene in the movie when Dafoe (playing the bad guy), sets fire to a self-portrait in his studio in a talismanic anticipation of his fate.

This song was playing while he was burning the painting. I find it very haunting - one of my favourites from a soundtrack.

Track 18

Down with the Sickness 


Well - Jakie was 'Down with the Sickness.'

Track 19


Nick Cave and Anita Lane

This one is pretty easy - Ian is infatuated, Sara is not.


Track 20

Come Together


Yes another easy one - Kenny and Ian becoming one. Love this cover.


Track #5


Je ne sais qu'une chose ; tu tiens
Ma joie, ma peine, entre tes mains

Tu es le souffle, le lien,
Mon enfant roi, mon magicien

Rien ne m'appartient
Mais au sud je reviens

Noyé dans le coeur des foules
C'est dans ton fleuve que je m'écoule

Quand tous les ponts d'or s'écroulent
C'est de ton air que je me saoule

Rien ne m'appartient
Mais au sud je reviens

Les territoires inconnus
Je les parcours, je les inclus

Mon pays, mon sang, ma rue
Sont dans tes yeux, je les ai vus


I know only one thing; you hold
My joy, my sorrow, between your hands

You are the breath, the bond,
My child king, my magician

Nothing does not belong to me
But to the south I return

Noyé in the heart of crowd
It is in your river which I run out

When all the gold bridges collapse
It is of your air that I drunk

Nothing is belonged to me
But to the south I return

The unknown territories
I them course, I include them

My country, my blood, my street
Are in your eyes, I saw them

Track #10

Everybody's so full of shit (everybody, everybody everybody) There's going to be people turning up in canyons, there's going to be people being shot, because the police there don't realize what i think they know that i ddin't do these things

camera got them images
camera got them all
nothing's shocking...
showed me everybody
naked and disfigured
nothing's shocking...
and then he came
now sister's not a virgin anymore
her sex is violent...

the t.v.'s go them images
t.v.'s got them all
it's not shocking!
every half an hour
someone's captured and
the cop just moves them along...
it's just like the show before
now the news is
just another show
with sex and violence..

sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent

i am the killer of people
you loook like a meatball
i'll throw away your toothpick
and ask for your giveness

because of this thing
because of this thing
because of this thing

that's in me
is it not in you?
is it not your problem?

a baby to a mother...

you talk too much
to your scapegoat

that's what i say
he tells you everyone is stupid
that's what he thinks!

make a girl look cheap
like a tongue extended
a baby's to a mother

sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent
sex is violent

Track #13

the reproach in your daughter's most beautiful face
made me wonder just how she could know
of that something that happened between you and me
so much more than a long time ago her mother, I can see, lives within her still

cause she looked at me with her eyes
though I had only just met her right then
I feel that she peeled back my guilty disguise

did i break the thread, or did you break the thread?
well at this point we could ask who cares
as for the promises broken and frayed
it's 19 years late for repairs

the grey pewter vase held the deep red rose,
one piece of coral shone white,
by the brass candlestick near your red velvet coat,
is everything I can recall of one night

will you please tell me why I remember these things
after all of this time, I don't know
i must have left all those feelings inside
cause that year I had no courage to show

was i the name you could never pronounce?
or did i even figure at all?
all of this happened before she was born
did i shadow her young pencil marks on the wall

still i am sure i was only but one
of a number who darkened that door
of your home and your hearth and your family and wife
who'd been darkened so often before

oh, the red leaf looks to the hard gray stone
to each other, they know what they mean
somewhere, their future is still yet to come
in ways that are yet as of now unforeseen

Track #19

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, I'm bedazzled
I don't care
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh, I'm bedazzled
So you said
You knock me out
I don't want you
You bust me up
I don't need you
You burn me up
I don't love you
You plug me in
Leave me alone
You switch me on
I'm self-contained
You light me up
Just go away
I'm bedazzled, I'm bedazzled, I'm be-dazzled! You glimmer
I'm fickle
You glitter
I'm cold
You shimmer
I'm shallow
You drive me wi-i-ild, you drive me wild!
You fill me with inertia

You knock me out
Don't get excited
You bust me up
Save your breath
You burn me up
Cool it
You plug me in
I'm not interested
You switch me on
It's too much effort
You light me up
Don't you ever leave off?
I'm bedazzled, I'm bedazzled, I'm be-dazzled!

I'm not available
