IF Theme songs?
« on: June 04, 2010, 07:03:22 PM »
I don't know if this has been a thread before, if so I'll delete this.
What song do you think of when you see them?

For Alexei I think Wheels by Jamie Cullum and Angel by Sarah Mclachlan
For Alix Immortal by Evanescene
And for Imperial Russia Viva La vida by Coldplay

Anyone else have soomething?

Thanks!

There are already some threads devoted to this topic. See for example this thread., this one, this one, this one, this one, this one this one and this one.  BTW you can't delete a post once you've posted it, only modify it within 30 minutes.

And for Imperial Russia Viva La vida by Coldplay
LOL; well, always a possibility if tired of God Save the Tsar and the Preobrazhensky March!

I think Malbrough s'en va t'en guerre could be a theme song for Alexei, since
- he was so into the military (here is a more martial version:  
- it's patriotic song of his empire's ally, France, based on a hero of his maternal family's homeland, Britain.
- it's theme is sad: death
- it's a children's song
- it's something he could play on his balalaika and perhaps he did, as the song has been well-known (especially in his circles) for centuries, after Marie-Antoinette made it popular. She had heard it from:
- Madame Poitrine, the nurse of the last Dauphin, who sang it for her charge, whose fate of course was similar to Alexei's.

Based on this charmingly romantic incident:The Russian Court Dances on Paatio Island in Vederlax Fjord, I've come to associate Olga with the melancholic frenzy of a Finnish polka!

Maybe he played, Gorseheart ^^

Malbrough s'en va t'en guerre. Hehe, this music is weird xD

And Olga's music too xDDD

I think that Dave Mathew's Grey blue Eyes http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9idlN1mDa1w suits Tatiana, Alexei and Alexandra that had grey blue eyes!!!

I won't torture all of you with it again, since I detailed this in length in the "songs about naotmaa" thread, but I connect almost every Tori Amos song to the Romanovs somehow, because I heard "Yes, Anastasia" when I was first learning about them, loved it, and decided to listen to all of her other songs. Since NAOTMAA was still fresh in my mind, lyrics that could be about them just jumped out at me so much. Especially in "Winter," which I view as from Olga's point-of-view about her bond with her father, "Bells For Her" about the impending revolution, "Ribbons Undone" about Anastasia's 'wildness'.... and many others!

You have it together! I will surely look those up, having each character in mind. :)

But the tune is quite popular in the English-speaking world. Can you guess under which name? :-P

Regarding your Reply # 7 concerning the melody: Though it has indeed been some time, "Fyodor Petrovich," (IMO) I faintly recall that the English words were something on the order of "The Bear Went Over the Mountain."   Regards,   AP.

That might be one Anglophone version, but the far most famous version in English is of course "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow"! Was "he" perhaps originally the Duke of Marlborough?
