In the interests of music being awesome, TF2 being awesome, and two great tastes usually tasting great together.

Share the songs that soundtrack your TF2 world. Anything you associate with a character, a pairing, a canon (or, hell, a fanfic) event, anything like that.


1. Any song is fine- consider this a sort of musical headcanon- but be prepared to back it up. You want to, for some ungodly reason, associate a Justin Beiber song with Heavy? You better say why.

2. Share the wealth! If the song's on YouTube, link it in your post. If not, upload it so people can give it a listen.

3. Posting all of the lyrics to the song, if any, isn't necessary- if you want to share lyrics, choose the most relevant bits.

Have fun, and may everybody's iPod get a little bit fuller.

Through the Fire and Flames fits pretty well with Pyro for obvious reasons.

Strangers by The Kinks also fits with the Sniper/Spy pairing. Listen to it and you'll see why. Unless you're the one who pairs them like some teenage highschool fags.

  The backstabbers- it makes sense to me.
>> No. 2766
  This song is NotTim in my head. And thus Spy in general.

Because NotTim is BLU in my head. I don't recall noting his actual team, if it was ever specified.
>> No. 2770
  I get this stuck in my head every time an enemy demo decapitates me.
>> No. 2771
  Because I am a dirty racist and accordions make me think of Spy.

Also because I love DeVotchKa.
>> No. 2772
It actually is NotTim. In a beautiful beautiful way.

Vid related: my Heavy/Medic song. I will never understand why this was a B-side.
>> No. 2774
  Bruce Springsteen - Tougher Than The Rest

This is a Helmet Party song. I keep picturing a Solly POV but it could work either way, given the song's sound. Genderflip where appropriate.
>> No. 2775
"You better get ready to die"
- you can replace the "black and white" part with "RED and BLU", and you get the perfect song for every match.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnOLvkaeq1E - since for some rason it doesn't want to embed, here's a link to it!
>> No. 2779
...Wow. Thank you for suggesting that song. It really inspired me to do some more fanart of NotTim. It's just the perfect song.

This is eternally my Heavy/Medic song (linked because it won't embed)

Always reminded me of Solly and Demo bromance.

  I feel this would be one of Scouts favorite songs.
>> No. 2790
  I subscribe to the "Engineer is a quiet, amiable, and good-natured sociopath" school of thought, so this happy threatening jangly guitar song seems like a song he might know how to play.
>> No. 2792
  Wow, a ton of good music in here already!

Now I've kinda come to associate The Knife's Heartbeats with crossfaction Sniper/Spy, and I don't even like that pairing. I just find the lyrics fitting.

Edit:(second) captcha: fochit. Just about what I say it refuses to post the first time.
>> No. 2797
  One for Soldier, going along the ever-cheerful notion that he's living a lie in regards to ACTUALLY being a soldier at all. Listen while reading his part of the WAR comic for maximum effect.

"There is fiction in the space between/You and reality..."

Can be interpreted as being from Demo's POV, for extra dramatics.
>> No. 2798
i dont know what is about this song
it just makes me think'a demoman tryin' to get his team to listen to a bit'a his own music [ scottish origin of the song]

plus it's so upbeat and brassy it just feels like demo
>> No. 2801
1. "Back In The USSR" - The Beatles (Self-explanatory.)
2. "Big Time" - Peter Gabriel ("My belly's getting bigger than my bank account...", going from a small town and hitting it big time)

1. "Help!" - The Beatles (Medic call spammers)
2. "Happiness Is A Warm Gun" - The Beatles (The Kritz, could double as a Heavy song about Sasha)
3. "Mandy Goes To Med School" - Dresden Dolls (Doctor who doesn't play by the rules, sexual undertones)
4. Most Voltaire songs, because he's also a classy, morbid mofo who plays violin.

1. "Psycho Killer" - Talking Heads (The French, mainly)

1. "Irish Whiskey" - Cherry Poppin' Daddies (Ignore the title, the rest of the lyrics work...it's about hard work, being pushed to the edge of your patience, but friends always sticking by you and getting drunk together)

A lot of Muse songs for the military feel.

Hopefully embed will work... This song always reminds me of Solly, possibly Scout or the entire team too.
>> No. 2811
Ne Me Quitter Pas - Regina Spektor (at least, my version is her)
Re: Vos Cerveaux - Jonathan Coulton (less because it's applicable, more because every time I listen to Vos Cerveaux I sing the words to Your Brains and I don't know shut up it makes me think of Spy)
The Only Way To My Heart - Foxy Shazam

Oh and Good Time as previously mentioned but that's specifically NotTim

I was only 19 - Redgum
Take Me Out (mostly the intro, derp) - Franz Ferdinand

One Four Five - Cat Empire (I know it's super un-canon for the Doctor to turn, give a grin, reach into his bag, but instead of an injection get a record with a tag that says "Listen to this daily with hip shaking and such things", and even more so for him to put the record ON, grab a mic, and start to sing. Shut up and listen to the song.)

Apres Moi - Regina Spektor

Glorious Way - Slightly Left Of Centre (I will be amazed if anyone's heard of this band. I love my obscure music, but this is ridiculous. Embedded for great justice)
The Man They Call Jayne - Firefly (derp derp derp)

All The Stars in Texas - Ludo


Count Me Out - Foxy Shazam (mooooostly for the line "boy comes home from school to find his Mama cryin', looks into her eyes so blue.)

Rotten Town - Ludo
What You Don't Know - Jonatha Brooke
>> No. 2812
  Also thought about What A Fucking Lovely Day by Stephen Merrit for Medic. Having fun doing evil.
>> No. 2814
  >One Four Five - Cat Empire
This is my new favourite song. I love this thread. So many new bands I need to investigate!

Okay, now for some of my own:

Pyro: Hilf Mir - Rammstein. I don't actually like this song that much (compared to every other Rammstein song, at least), but it's pretty much Pyro's theme song. Bonus: everyone gets to argue about whether the word "Kleid" in this context means "dress" or just clothes in general.

Engie: (Is This The Way To) Amarillo - Tony Christie. It's got Texas in it. Q.E.D. Also in my head Engie sings like somewhere between Tony and Nick Cave. Also also, I freakin' love this song.

Heavy: The Boxer - Simon and Garfunkel. It's about a boxer. That's pretty much it, to be honest. It's just a nice song.

Spy: See Me In Shadow - Delain. Just hit me as I was flicking through my TF2 playlist (gloriously named "Music to Gib Maggots By"). Kind of fits with the idea of a Spy never revealing anything about his life prior to joining RED/BLU. Possibly from the perspective of a romantic partner?

Medic: Doctor to My Disease - Jethro Tull. Specifically, Medic/someone, from the perspective of the someone. Especially the bits "You can probe a little, push that knife around." and "Do you have to break my engine
so you can fix it up again?".

And some general ones:
Brothers In Arms - Dire Straits. Fairly obvious. Embedded Northern Kings cover because it's badass and everything is better covered by the godfathers of Finnish metal. Plus, the line "We're fools to make war on our brothers in arms." can contain bonus cross-faction bromance of some sort.

"We Didn't Start The Fire" - BIlly Joel. Based on the idea that the current team isn't the first, and that this war has been going on waaaay longer. Okay, so the time period covered is a little off, but never mind.
>> No. 2815
  Soldier's theme song right here:
Sabaton - Screaming Eagles

It's about fighting nazis in Bastogne all alone. The song even emphasizes on the "alone" part. Also, the title.
>> No. 2830
...Where he says "Tougher than the rest" ...it sounds like "Tougher than the REDs."
>> No. 2841
  Scout singing this while on his sanvich stealing escapades has been firmly lodged in my mind every single time I hear this song.

The reprise also fits him as well.
>> No. 2847
Hah, I can totally see this.

I might as well... I just see a normal fight from RED and BLU. Ratcliffe is EASILY BLU Soldier. Powhatan is RED Sniper.
" Their skin's a hellish red, They're only good when dead." Come on, tell me that's NOT something a good American Solly would say about RED. Haha!
>> No. 2848
  Rammstein - Mann gegen Mann ("Man against man")

The true spirit of TF2 summarised in a single song and music video. Warning - Video contain plenty of exposed flesh.
Translated lyrics: http://www.affenknecht.com/lyrics.php?sekce=mann-gegen-mann&l=en
>> No. 2849
  One for Sniper/Scout, from Scout's POV

Underneath it All (Zebrahead Cover) - No Doubt

I also Think Zebrahead's cover of Jenny from the Block is very fitting for Scout...If a little contextually inaccurate

Most songs by The Offspring remind me fiercely of Scout as well.
>> No. 2853
  I like to think of this as a sort of song you hear during the epilogue of TF2, where everyone's contracts have finally reached the end of their term and them parting ways.

You see them leave one by one, some leaving together, others alone.
They leave driving their cars, boarding their trains; giving their last goodbyes, hugs, and handshakes before going back home and to their families.

And as they're finally leaving the war behind them, despite all the times where they would love nothing more than to strangle each other, they look back at the camaraderie they shared with fondness.

... yeah, please forgive me for the saccharine drenched drivel.
>> No. 2889
  Someone made a really badass machinima (that i can't find anymore) in the vein of Ignis Solus to this track and it got me to look up the album. The whole thing is cheesy but great; sounds a lot like De-Phazz and it's all this electronic bongo-orchestra hit fest that I envision every TF2 game is set to.

I have NO clue why I haven't been micspamming it yet, but I certainly will start now. There's even a song called "Tango for a Spy"
>> No. 2901

I pretty much almost shed a tear.
>> No. 2907
  I think this is pretty damn appropriate, really.

Plus I have this awesome music video all planned out in my head because I'm a loser like that.
>> No. 2967
  >>2907 All my love for reccing a Janelle Monae song. Good taste my friend.

Arctic Monkeys - Balaclava

For spy, as the title suggests. My favorite song for him. It's frantic and action packed as well so, double your pleasure.
>> No. 2968
  I feel like this is a perfect summary of how a Spy would treat women.
>> No. 2980
  Whenever I play on a server that has Medieval Mode active, this song always comes to mind
>> No. 2988
Another song for NotTim. So many fit him and they all make me bawl.

>> No. 3050
  Nearly anything by The Fratellis makes me feel 'Scout'.
I could pair fem!Scout and regular Scout back in Boston by way of 'Whistle for the Choir'

In the little animation that runs with it in my head, she beats him up at bars a lot... and even though she's a 'Silly (fuckin') girl' he remains dumbfounded by her and keeps trying to get her attention.
>> No. 3070
  This will never stop reminding me of Spy, in the best possible way. Seriously. Imagine him singing it. I dare you.
>> No. 3086
Demoman: Misirlou- Dick Dale & the Del Tones (I don't really have much reason for this besides that it sounds like it'd be fun to blow stuff up with this in the background)
Hadrian's Wall- Robert W. Smith (For its Celtic influences)
Friggin' in the Riggin'- The Sex Pistols (I'm not sure how this happened)
Deep River- Paul Robeson (I imagine Demo as pretty strongly, though privately, religious)

Engineer- Bad, Bad Leroy Brown- Jim Croce (This and most of his others because they seem like the sort of things he'd sit around a campfire and play)
It Ain't Me, Babe- Johnny Cash
Anyone Else But You- The Moldy Peaches (somebody drew him and Soldier singing this together once. the Johnny Cash song, too)

Heavy: Prosschai- Artie Shaw (another Heavy/Medic song, I think somebody already posted this though)

Medic: Innsbruck, Ich muss dich lassen- Henreich Issac (It seems like a perfect song for a sad Heavy/Medic fanwork, with there are tons of on here by thew way. Jesus you people is depressing.)

Pyro: Maxwell's Silver Hammer- The Beatles (though he carries an axe instead)

Scout: Adventure of a Lifetime- Two Steps From Hell (No idea)

Sniper: Home Among the Gum Trees- John Williamson (for obvious reasons)
Smooth Criminal- Michael Jackson
Maid With the Flaxen Hair- Richard Stoltzman
Waltzing Matilda- Slim Dusty
Paranoid Eyes- Pink Floyd (think someone posted this, too)

Soldier: Veteran of the Psychic Wars- Blue Oyster Cult (Even if he refuses to acknowledge it)
Who Are the Brain Police?- Frank Zappa

Spy: Nightmare- Artie Shaw (One of the many actors who portrayed James Bond said he listened to this song to get in the mood of his character. I've associated it with Spy since before I knew about TF2, I think.)
>> No. 3088
  Stripped by Depeche Mode. This is a Medic song to me. You could interpret it a couple of different ways - literally, full of bonesaws and of lots of crazy hallucinogenic drugs... or you could take the liberty and just figure he's trying to get to know someone. By, y'know. Picking them apart very thoroughly. I figure it fits.
>> No. 3108
Spy: I'll Be Gone- Mario Basanov Vidis ft. Jazzu (I imagine this fits him when he'd have to leave a lady friend- for her own safety, of course)

Medic: Strangelove- Depeche Mode (for the good 'ole sadomasochistic feel)
>> No. 3114
  Engineer + Pyro song post homewrecker removin' sappers
>> No. 3117
  If that one scene in 'Respawn of the Dead'... YOU know the one... didn't already make you cry your eyeballs out, try reading it and the subsequent scenes again to this song. You're welcome.
>> No. 3119

Speaking of Respawn, I keep listening to this during Soldier and Medic's fight, though I think it fits a lot better if you completely disregard the lyrics (I didn't even know what they meant 'till I found this vid, as I didn't want to post an anime music video for this song.)
>> No. 3125

This is actually amazing. Like, the best beautiful combination of songs I've ever heard. Ever.
>> No. 3161

Interesting how they're both Rammstein songs.

I wish I could remember the songs I was listening to while writing both of those parts. I know there were other parts where I had the same song on loop just to get in a certain mood.
>> No. 3346
  I like this song for Spy. Even Sniper/Spy works well with this.
>> No. 3359
  But you're feeling so bad 'cause you know
That the spies hide out in every corner
But you can't touch them no
'Cause they're all spies


Basically every pubserver ever
>> No. 3369
  Sniper + Viaduct or Coldfront = this song.

Based on an actual sniper in WW2 who had a confirmed kill count of 505, and that's just with his sniper rifle. He had another 200 or so with his SMG.
>> No. 3371
  Demo has sex to this. That is all.

Gimme gimme fuel for my fire
Just a little spark of desire
For her delight
I'll serve dynamite tonight
>> No. 3382
  Awesome song that basically defines the insanity the Chan puts the TF2 guys through on a regular basis.

"Where the pixelated doctors moan..."
>> No. 3383
  Another Spy song, I seem to have a lot of them. Though there are elements of Pyro/Spy (of all things).

"It's just a shadow, baby, it can't come to life, but it's the shadows baby, they're quickest with the knife."
>> No. 3385
Before the board went kablooie, I mentioned in the old 'dreams' thread that I had a very nice one once of this video... this one right here... with some nice Medic on Medic action. And now I can't unsee it. Nor do I really want to.

Here's the link as the imbed is being retarded.

  Blessthefall - With Eyes Wide Shut

It's completely fanon that Engineer has a daughter, but every time I listen to this, that is what it reminds me of. I think I read somewhere the writer wrote it about his own daughter while on tour.

<iframe title="YouTube video player" width="480" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/zSAJ0l4OBHM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Makes me think of Sniper. That is all.

This sounds way too hopeful.

  Yeeeeeeeah. I think WAtHE goes a little more something like this.

Bonus gutpunch if you've seen the movie 'The Mist', which had a real Cat Bountry ending in and of itself.
>> No. 3553
  Recently started listening to this and I can't help but envision it as Medic playing his violin to this song.

Also, I suppose this could be a great song to TeratoMarty's "The Kiss" fanfic, that is if it sounds like something that would match up with the feel of the story, especially towards the end of the song as it builds up for a big finish. You be the judge.

and in case it didn't embed = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPaGE24vpio
>> No. 3554
Yeah, I suppose you're right, now I listen to it again. It just made my think of it because both your fic and that song always brought be damn close to tears, and the lyrics seemed to fit.

Well, anyway, here I have yet another song.
It's probably a horrible cliche to relate a Rammstein song to Medic, but they're one of my favourite bands, and once I got I hold of this one's English translation, holy fuck does it fit bro.
>> No. 3556
This was exactly what I thought when I first heard this song. I'm sure it IS a horrible cliche but if the delicious German fits...

Vid related: erm, I dunno, it reminds me of Heavy? Being suitably Russian and mad and violent. Also, I'm convinced Heavy is a bit of a romantic under all those muscles.
>> No. 3600
  The original doesn't interest me in the slightest.
This one though, specifically combined with reading the first appearance of Spycho in The Nucleus Incident CREEPS ME THE FUCK OUT
>> No. 3661
  Also, for your mansex soundtrack needs look no further than Judas Priest. I swear, half of their songs are about rough/creepy/manly/kinky fucking.

Embed song is Heavy Duty. Others I DEFINITELY recommend are

- Delivering the Goods
- Come and get it
- Private Property
- Love bites
- Burnin' up
- Eat me alive
- A Touch of Evil
- Love you to Death
- Evil Fantasies

Look these up on Youtube and your lyrics site of choice; you won't be disappointed.

  Whelp, you done pissed Engie off.

He ain't gonna holler at you much, though. Maybe give you the evil eye a bit, but he won't make no mention of it.

What he's gonna do is brew him some good strong black joe an' pull an all nighter in his workshop. Play a little Cash, maybe sing along a bit when he feels like it's relevant, but mostly he'll be building.

He'll be building something that'll make you wish you weren't never born, son. You're gonna be sorry you ever crossed him.

And THAT is why you should beware the nice ones.

Ahem. So anyway, have some Man in Black.

  Frühling in Paris by Rammstein

It Reminds me of Red Spy and Scout's Mom. Even if the Lyrics are in German I still can see Spy singing them (Maybe in French?)

Meat Loaf - Peace On Earth

The style and tone remind me of Scout the most strongly, but I can see this fitting for the team as a whole or any particular individual: the song's point of view is a soldier tired of the war he's fighting with no hope for an end or attention from higher forces, and lines like "I don't wanna be an end/For someone else's dirty hand" are really appropriate given the backstory.
>> No. 4602
  Finally a song that fits my personal Sniper/Spy headcanon perfectly- A hopelessly in love Sniper, a Spy who just will not commit. (And yes, Scootma is the other woman, and therefore the 'her' in the song.)
>> No. 4603
  I still think this is the idea Sniper/Spy song. A little retro, a little funky, very playful and sadistic.
>> No. 4620
  Just made a connection with this one.

Drunken Lullabies by Flogging Molly.

Makes me think of Demoman. I know it's an Irish band, and he's Scottish, but it still makes me think it's the type of song he'd tear up to. Constantly mentions eyes, and death and such.
I really like the bit at the end though "No colour left but black and white." For me, it ties into the RED vs BLU conflict, but it also evokes the notion of skin colour.
...I really need to get out of the English Program.
>> No. 4632
  I find these lyrics fitting to Sniper/Spy after they had a fight, and then from Spy's POV.
>> No. 4694
  This song's all about being a foot-soldier fighting in a never-ending war for reasons nobody's sure of in a place where your death is a matter of 'when' instead of 'if'. It's awesome music to listen to when playing.

Also the fact that it's being backed by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra is pretty cool.
>> No. 4774
  "You're the Voice" by John Farnham

A friend of mine found this song and said that the whole feel of it made her think of Sniper. She couldn't explain why when I asked. Then I listened to it. We still can't place it, but it's perfect.
>> No. 4778
  A song about overthetop manliness. 'nuff said.

(Here are the lyrics translated by yours truly because derp, the song is in German)

Die Ärzte
Ein Mann

Petting just ain't my thing
Are we in a zoo or what?
I'm the best at plumbing
And at everything else of course

I'm a man!
I'll wash my socks whenever
Taking over the world
Just because I can
I'm a man!

Charismatic, cultivated
And tattooed on the hip
I'll show it if you bow down before me
You'll go nuts when you see it

I'm a man!
I'll give you an overdose of fun
Got a lot hung on me
Take a look
I'm a man!

Subtle like a tank
Sensitive like a highway

I'm a man!
More dangerous than Jackie Chan
So please, touch me with caution
You're fascinated by me
I got you in my hand
Because I'm so interesting
Even though just by sheer chance
I got more luck than wits

if you listen closely @ 0:07 and 1:40 you can hear Soldier laughing, and at 2:04 you can hear Engie howling, imo.

my headcanon says everyone from TF2 plays this song together every weekend. They use gascans and Demopan's head for drums cause they want to be Rastifarians
>> No. 4917
Gosh, I actually have an iTunes playlist with songs I play when I think of TF2. First one is from a celtic folk-rock group named Steeleye Span, and it's for the Spy.

"Following Me" Which appears not to exist on the Web. I has a sad. But here are some of the lyrics-
Look in his eyes, this man, he'll tell you nothing
You'll have to do what he says if you
Look in his eyes, this man, it's no use running
I know I mustn't look back at him

(Somebody's following, following me)
I feel his breath on the back of my hair
(Somebody's following, following me)
And there's fear in the air

Other Spy songs on my list include "Secret Agent Man", "Spy Hard" by Weird Al Yankovic, "Smooth Operator" by Sade, "Mr. Mistoffles" from Cats, "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin and "Words" from the Erotica Album by Madonna.

Songs for the Engineer- "Handy Man" by James Taylor, "Tuff Enuff" by the Fabulous Thunderbirds, and "Sweet Baby James" also by James Taylor

Demoman songs- "The Scotsman" by Brian Bowers, off the Dr. Demento 20th Anniversary Album. It's about a scotsman in a kilt who gets blotto at a bar, passes out on the side of the street and is discovered by two young women who peer under his kilt to see what Scotsmen really do wear under there, then leave a blue silk ribbon tied around what they see. The last line "Och, lad, I dunno where you been, but I see you won first prize!" slays me every time I hear it.

Medic- "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" by Tom Lehrer, "Der Komissar" by Falco, "Mad World" the version by Gary John Jules, And "Where I Want to Be" from the play "Chess".

Believe that each day which breaks is your last.
Believe that each day which breaks is your last.

Christ on a bike, a Span song I haven't heard? I am ashamed. Where do I hand in my Folk Nerd Badge?
On the subject of folk music, I think this is the appropriate thread to mention that I always think of Solly when I listen to any song involving a nameless soldier, which, given what soldiers tend to get up to in folk music, is pretty damn hilarious.
Vid related: Cold Haily Windy Night has a guy known only as "the soldier" who knocks up some girl and buggers off the next morning. Couldn't find the Steeleye Span version, just this very odd yet intriguing... thing that has a sitar and those Indian drums.

  One for Shovel, believe it or not. Imagine it whispering this into Solly's head.

...don't fret, precious, i'm here, step away from the window, go back to sleep, safe from pain and truth and choice and other poison devils, see they don't give a fuck about you like I do...

Yes, I'm creeped out too.

  Just recently, I realised how damn Sniper-appropriate this song is. It's Aussie and has wee in it. I mean come on.

I can't listen to this without thinking that, as imagined by Valve's brass section, it isn't the perfect theme for Meet the Medic.

  This song makes me think of crossfaction Sniper/Spy. There was a fic I read recently that I think it really relates to... I think it's called Stolen Kisses? I can't remember, and of course I didn't bookmark it.

The odds are against us right now
And the stakes are getting higher and higher
Still you talk, of dreaming
About all the things we could do
If I placed all my bets on you
And you placed all your bets on me
They're shooting to kill around here
But I know thats not keeping you away from my home
