Zombie Soundtrack #8: Danielle

Here we have a list I’ve been expecting since I’ve been posting zombie soundtracks. Neon Trees was a new one for me, although 5 million views tells me I’m not hip with it. I’ve never been a big fan of Atreyu but the chosen song seems to fit zombie killing pretty well. Before listening to Nonpoint’s second, just by the title alone, it seems like a good song to go out on. As far as Lacuna Coil goes, I’ve left a link to the video. I’ve got to give credit to a band that has a lead singer that looks as good as she does and still focus on the other front man who looks like he’d be Pedro’s dad from Napoleon Dynamite.

Zombie Soundtrack #3: Jessica

I imagine this soundtrack fitting into a zombie movie where all the characters are in their early twenties and, thank God, a zombie apocalypse broke out because they weren’t doing anything with their lives. Maybe like Idle Hands (1999) but with zombies. That had a pretty good soundtrack. In fact, that was about the only decent thing about that movie, if that. One thing’s for sure, Deftones seems to have a place guaranteed on any list I post and Jessica evidently loves Jimmy Eat World. Which is cool with me. If you want your own soundtrack posted, read this. – T
1. Taking Back Sunday- You Know How I do
2. Yeah Yeah Yeahs- No No No
3. Deftones- Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)
4. Yeah Yeah Yeahs- Man
5. Jimmy Eat World- Thinking that is All
6. The Joy Formidable- The Magnifying Glass
7. Jawbreaker- Accident Prone
8. Jimmy Eat World- Firefight
9. Paramore- Franklin

Right off, how can you go wrong with Motorhead on your zombie soundtrack? The answer is that you can’t. It’s perfect.. It’s like peanut butter and jelly, or Channing Tatum and terrible acting; they just GO TOGETHER. I find Eels to be a funny choice especially for the particular theme of a zombie uprising, but it’s easy to imagine the slowed down, happy-go-lucky feeling as zombies tear through an overly colorful, Edward Scissorhands-style suburbia. -T

Zombie Soundtrack

In the spirit of zombies, I’ve put together a zombie soundtrack for my story. Specifically, a list of songs I was listening to at different times when writing The Dead and the Dying, but before I post mine, I’ve set up a number of themes that are highly applicable to the Zombie Apocalypse scenario. Below is a short list of themes for you to pick songs you feel are appropriate to the mood, followed by an explanation. Pick your list, and email them to me. Fill out all the numbers with at least one answer if you want to see them up here.

1. All is Well– This is the beginning of the story, when your life is at it’s most normal, before the outbreak.

2. Terror Rising– The Outbreak is here! How do you feel about it? Scared? Frantic? …Happy?

3. What Happens Now?– What’s your plan? Do you sit at home and strategize? Do you immediately make a break for it? Do you go the cowards way out? Decisions, decisions…

4, 5, 6.  The Killing Begins!- Pick three tracks for this setting. This is you doing what you’ve always wanted to do should a Zombie Apocalypse break out- Kill people without having to feel bad about it! Do you go into a dream-like state or a beserker rage like Wolverine? Pick what reflects you in action. For every 12 soundtracks posted, a winner will be voted on and get a prize. Prizes? OOH YEEAH!

7. All is Lost– A literary term to define exactly what you feel at this moment when all is, in fact, lost. Sad, depressing, blahblahblah…

8. You and Yours– Regroup! It’s fight or flight! Get your survivors and get out of here! Escape!

9. Here’s to the Future– A song to go out on. Are you dead? Dying? Zombified? Alive and reflective? Hopeful? This is the song to show it.
