He's my Son- Mark Schultz It reminds me alot of Alix and Alexei.

I'm down on my knees again tonight
I'm hoping this prayer will turn out right
See there is a boy that needs Your help
I've done all that I can do myself
His mother is tired
I'm sure You can understand
Each night as he sleeps
She goes in to hold his hand
And she tries not to cry
As the tears fill her eyes

CHORUS:
Can You hear me?
Am I getting through tonight?
Can You see him?
Can You make him feel all right?
If You can hear me
Let me take his place somehow
See, he's not just anyone
He's my son

Sometimes late at night I watch him sleep
I dream of the boy he'd like to be
I try to be strong and see him through
But God who he needs right now is You
Let him grow old
Live life without this fear
What would I be
Living without him here
He's so tired and he's scared
Let him know that You're there

CHORUS

Can You hear me?
Can You see him?
Please don't leave him
He's my son


I'm for You- tobyMac Reminds me of Nick and Alix

Tell me where its hurting
Are you burning?
Running just to catch your breath
And going nowhere
It's getting old when you feel like you got nothing left
Well it ain't over 'til it's over
I told you since the day we met
So let me be the voice through all the noise
Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you

Whatever you need from me
To see you through
Everyone of us has stumbled
Everybody's humbled
We hit the ground and our lives crumble

Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you
I'm for you
If you never knew
If you never knew
I'm for you
You know it's true

I know the feeling
I know it's real when the drama's all in your face
You see a mountain
I hear a promise - it's never more than we can take
Well it ain't over, 'til it's over
We can learn from our mistakes
So let me be the voice through all the noise

Everyone of us will fall
Have our backs against the wall
And everyone shares a need to be loved

You've always been for me
So I will be for you
That's just what it means to love

Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you
I'm for you
If you never knew
If you never knew
I'm for you
You know it's true

Whatever I gotta be
I'll be for you
I'm for you
If you never knew
If you never knew
I'm for you
You know it's true

Everytime you fall, I'll be for you,
If you back's against the wall, I'll be for you,
Cause you've always been for me, I'll be for you,
I'll be for you, I'm for you.
If you never knew,
If you never knew,
I'm for you.

I'm for you, like your for me, like I'm for you,
I'm for you, like your for me, like your for me, like I'm for you,
I'm for you like your for me, like I'm for you,
I'm for you like your for me, like your for me, like I'm for you,
I'm for you like your for me, like your for me, like I'm for you,

I'm for you


I'm back on my bull****.

let me rephrase the first bit. Nicholas is the one who would be singing, so it reminds me of him, Alix, and Alexei.

This song remembers much Alexandra and Alexei to me

Baby mine

Baby mine, don't you cry
Baby mine, dry your eyes
Rest your head close to my heart
Never to part, baby of mine
Little one when you play
Don't you mind what you say
Let those eyes sparkle and shine
Never a tear, baby of mine
If they knew sweet little you
They'd end up loving you too
All those same people who scold you
What they'd give just for
The right to hold you
From your head to your toes
You're not much, goodness knows
But you're so precious to me
Cute as can be, baby of mine

This song really reminds me of them. It's as if they could be singing it themselves. I always imagine NAOTMAA singing the verses for some reason.

Violet Hill - Coldplay

Was a long and dark December
From the rooftops I remember      -Nicholas.
There was snow
White snow

Clearly I remember
From the windows they were watching   -Alexandra.
While we froze down below

When the future's architectured
By a carnival of idiots on show  -Olga Nicholaievna.
You'd better lie low

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

Was a long and dark December
When the banks became cathedrals  -Tatiana Nicholaievna.
And the fog
Became God

Priests clutched onto bibles
And went out to fit their rifles -Maria Nicholaievna.
And the cross was held aloft

Bury me in honor
When I'm dead and hit the ground -Anastasia Nicholaievna.
A love back home unfolds

If you love me
Won't you let me know?

I don't want to be a soldier
With the captain of some sinking ship -Alexei Nicholaievich.
With snow, far below

So if you love me
Why'd you let me go?

I took my love down to violet hill
There we sat in snow
All that time she was silent still

So if you love me
Won't you let me know?

If you love me,
Won't you let me know?

I love that song, i always cry when listening to it. And it reminds me of Nicholas and Alexei too, i  am thinking about making a vid with it, on Alexei but i am doubting whether i would take Nicholas and Alexandra, Rasputin of just pictures in it

Hi everybody!!  :)  Some of my favorite songs. XD

Remembering You by Steven Curtis Chapman from Narnia Soundtrack, reminds me NAOTMAA

There's a YouTube Video to that song, which I absolutely love. 

Songs that always make me think of OTMAA are God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by Manheim Steemroller (both versions), Moondance by Nightwish, and If Only by Fiction Plane.  "If Only" is from the Holes soundtrack and the lyrics are right from the book, but I always am reminded of NAOTMAA.  Search it on YouTube if you want to hear the song.  I wish someone would make a NAOTMAA video to it, but as of now, no luck.

Lost - Michael Buble

I can't believe it's over
I watched the whole thing fall
And I never saw the right man was on the wall
If I don't land
Days were slipping past
That the good things never last
That you were crying

Summer turned to winter
And the snow it turned to rain
And the rain turned into tears upon your face
I hardly recognized the girl you are today
And god I hope it's not too late
It's not too late
'Cause you are not alone
I'm always there with you
And we'll get lost together
Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost
When your worlds crashing down
And you can't bear to fall
I said, babe, you're not lost

Life can show no mercy
It can tear your soul apart
It can make you feel like you've gone crazy
But you're not
Things have seem to changed
There's one thing that's still the same
In my heart you have remained
And we can fly fly fly away

'Cause you are not alone
And I am there with you
And we'll get lost together
Till the light comes pouring through
'Cause when you feel like you're done
And the darkness has won
Babe, you're not lost
When the worlds crashing down
And you can not bear to crawl
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost
I said, baby, you're not lost

This song reminds me of Nicholas and Alexandra, mainly of Nicholas overthinking their past life while they're imprisoned in the Ipatiev-house, it just makes me think of them, the things they had to face are things that made them stronger as a couple and showed that they would stand by each other always, no matter what price they had to pay for loving each other. So this works for them, i think.

This song reminds me of Anastasia.

The Calendar Girl.

If I am lost for a day try to find me.
But if I don't come back, then I won't look behind me.
And all of the things that I thought were so easy,
Just got harder and harder each day.

December is darkest.
In June there's the light.
But this empty bedroom won't make anything right.

While out on the landing a friend I forgot to send home,
Who waits up for me all through the night.

Calendar girl who's in love with the world, stay alive.
Calendar girl who's in love with the world, stay alive.

I dreamed I was dying as I so often do.
And when I awoke, I was sure it was true.
I ran to the window, threw my head to the sky.
And said, "Whoever is up there, please don't let me die."
But I can't live forever.
I can't always be.
One day I'll be sand on a beach by the sea.
The pages keep turning.
I'll mark off each day with a cross.
And I'll laugh about all that we've lost.

Calendar girl who is lost to the world, stay alive.
Calendar girl who is lost to the world, stay alive.

January, February, March, April, May, I'm alive.
June, July, August, September, October, I'm alive.
December and all through the winter I'm alive, I'm alive.

There is a song of The Strokes  which few parts reminds me of Olga & Tatiana.
Their song is called What ever happened ?

I want to be forgotten,
and I don't want to be reminded.
You say "please don't make this harder."        --->     Olga
No, I won't yet.

It makes me think of her  having hard times when she was a nurse and was upset by the stress this work gave her.

And this one sentence reminds me of Tatiana

'She wanna be admired'

Tatiana liked being the center of all the public attention. That's why that makes me think of her.

I love The Strokes! I thought about them too when I first heard that song.

So I started a whole new thread for this topic like any good dumbbell! *rolls eyes* Here was my list of befitting music...I intend to add more--I just don't have time to add it to this one just now! :)

"Russian Christmas by Alfred Reed. It was my school band's tradition to play this every year at Christmas. It is a 15-minute piece, very beautiful, very passionate that epitomizes old Russia, as well as Russian Orthodoxy. It's just such a gorgeous piece. Professional orchestral versions should be available to hear--as far as I know, it's pretty popular.

Russian Easter by Nikolai Rismky-Korsakov. This one is much like Russian Christmas, but obviously focuses around Easter. It is also very passionate, very Old Russia and Russian Orthodoxy, and like Russian Christmas, it makes use of the chimes, symbolizing all the bells in the church towers. Rimsky-Korsakov is a brilliant composer, of course. I highly recommend this one, as well! Smiley

More obscurely:

Now these ones will seem out of the blue versus the other two I post, but I will explain why I chose them after each.

Tania, Enemy at the Gates soundtrack, by James Horner. The movie "Enemy at the Gates" obviously took place in Russia, but it revolved around the Russian side of WWII, not WWI or anything involved with the Imperial Family. What I love most about this certain track is the evident emotion in the music. I recently made a reply to the "Kitchen Boy" thread in the Books segment of the forum, because I had read it again for the fifth time. Well, I read it while listening to this track--only this track. That is now what the music reminds me of. It has a truly Russian sound to it. But while it is supposed to revolve around Russia in WWII, much of it really does epitomize Russia under autocracy. There is a part where the music becomes "grandiose" and elegant, with the church bells ringing in the background. And then, toward the end of the music...Well, I'll leave that for you to hear. It breaks my heart every time I hear it, it's so beautiful! Wink James Horner truly is an amazing composer (in my eyes), which is why my next selection is also by him.

Casper, by James Horner. There are silly parts of this soundtrack which are obviously the way they are because they are from the movie, "Casper", but the ones I am referring to are Tracks 6 (The Lighthouse), Track 8 (Fond Memories), Track 10 (Casper's Lullaby), and Track 12 (One Last Wish). I think these remind me of the Imperial Family because my sister used them in a movie she made of the Romanovs, for a school project. I can't really explain them in words. They are all hauntingly beautiful, and as I said with "Tanya" from "Enemy at the Gates", there is so much emotion in the music, that it really does befit the Royal Family. Listen to them! I think you'll agree! Smiley (If not, I'll buy you a pint) Wink

Anyway, I have others, but I think this list is good enough for now!"

There are some good ones you mentioned, Marishka. I also have a lot of classical pieces that remind me of them

The Last Spring (Våren) - Edvard Grieg.  - My favorite ever. Sad and pretty. Reminds me of their time in captivity.
Ase's Death - Edvard Grieg. - Also good. It's very depressing and reminds me of their death.
Pavane of a Dead Princess - Maurice Ravel.
Pavane - Fauré.
In Paradisium - Fauré. - Very pretty and reminds me of the children.
Russian Waltz - Shostakovich.
Liubov' Sviataya. (Sacred Love.)

One of the classical song who reminds me the Imperial Family is Nearer my god to thee, which is played in the Titanic, when the ship was sinking.

I wish I could remember what that song sounds like right now...

Here's another. It reminds me of them:

Grace Master.

I'm on my knees.
Only memories
are left for me to hold.
Don't know how,
but I'll get by.
Slowly pull myself together.

I'll get through this.

There's no escape.
So keep me safe.
This feels so unreal.

Nothing comes easily.
Fill this empty space.
Nothing is like it seems.
Turn my grief to grace.

I feel the cold.
Lonliness unfold
like from another world.
Come what may,
I won't fade away
but I know I might change.

Nothing comes easily.
Fill this empty space.
Nothing is like it was.
Turn my grief to grace.

Nothing comes easily.
Where do I begin?
Nothing can bring me peace.
I've lost everything.
I just wanna feel your embrace.

I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
