Hey guys. A few months ago I decided to toss my hat into the ring of starting one of those infamous tagging themes. The result was Put a Tune to it which to my surprise took off far better than I expected.
First off, I want to thank everyone who took part, and I hope you all had fun. I’ve been thinking about what is going to follow up, and while I have my idea. I wanted to take one more shot at this theme before we move on. I’ve got a handful of other songs that I think fit anime or anime characters, so let’s get into it after the cut.
In case you forgot the rules.
- Choose any number of western songs (any genre) that you think best sums up an anime or manga of any type or genre.
- If you want to pick more than 1 from each section that’s fine. Or if you can’t think of one for a specific category that’s fine also.
- Explain why you think your choices could work. Is it the lyrics? The tune and the beat? Or just the music video?
- Link back to the original post so I can read people’s suggestions, I’d love to read everyone’s ideas.
- Include Put a Tune to It in your tags so everyone including myself can find them all easily.
