Songs for Knightmare characters

Post by Canadanne » Sat Mar 10, 2012 6:22 pm

I can't remember if this has been done before on the forum or not... pick an artist and see how many of their song titles you can apply to Knightmare characters!

Here's one I did a while ago with U2 songs:

Endless Deep - Lillith
Magnificent - Merlin
The Fool - Folly
Do You Feel Loved - Mug the gargoyle
Where Did It All Go Wrong? - Jamie (Series 2)
Disappearing Act - Steven (Series 2)
Out Of Control - Mildread on her broomstick
Stand Up Comedy - Motley
A Man And A Woman - Mrs Grimwold
Stay - Festus
I Fall Down - Mellisandre
One Step Closer - Scott (Series 3)
So Cruel - Morghanna
One - Hordriss
Shadows And Tall Trees - Oakley
Big Girls Are Best - Gundrada
Exit - Doorkis
Silver And Gold - the Boatman
I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For - Malice
Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) - Giles (Series 4)
Winter - Aesandre
The Wanderer - Ridolfo
Pride - Greystagg
The Ocean - Captain Nemanor
Scarlet - Red Death
Stranger In A Strange Land - Grimaldine
Mysterious Ways - Brother Strange
I Will Follow - the Grayling
An Cat Dubh - Bethsemane
Crumbs From Your Table - Ben (Series 7)
Bad - Lord Fear
Surrender (or Moment Of Surrender) - NOT Lord Fear
Your Blue Room - Tim Child

David also suggested Wild Honey - Skarkill, and Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of - Stuart (Series 2)! ;D


And here's my attempt with songs by The Waterboys:

The Dance At The Crossroads (or Always Dancing, Never Getting Tired) - McGrew
Peace Of Iona - Greystagg
I've Lived Here Before - Treguard of Dunshelm
His Word Is Not His Bond - Honesty Bartram
Malediction - Maldame
Strange Boat - the Boatman
Fisherman's Blues - Ridolfo
We Will Not Be Lovers - any dungeon female to Motley
It Should Have Been You - Leo, Sophia, Nathan etc...
I Will Not Follow - Cedric in Ariadne's lair
This Old Ship (or This Is The Sea) - Captain Nemanor
One Sweet Step At A Time - dungeoneers in Merlin's throne room
My Dark Side - Mogdred
Questions - the Brollachan, or any wall monster
One Of Many Rescuers - anyone who saves Romahna
Open - the weeping doors
Preparing To Fly - Smirkenorff
Winter Winter - Aesandre
Be My Enemy - Lord Fear
Wonderful Disguise - Hordriss
Everybody Takes A Tumble - Lillith

Wow! Even though I haven't heard of all almost any of these songs, the titles paired up sound good. :green:
