Fill The PS Characters' MP3 Players!

This thread is just for fun, so let's try to fill up the MP3 players of our favorite Phantasy Star characters. Suggest away! Make sure you add a little justifying edit as to why your character would like the song. A link to the song is helpful too! And try to keep it in English, lyrics wise. If you insist on foreign stuff, translations!

As an example, Princess Kara would definitely have Moonlight Densetsu on her MP3 player. I mean, come on, Princess Luna of the Moon? Heck, Ozaki even dressed her up in the outfit! Plus, Kara looks like a romantic to me, and how could a "miracle romance in the moonlight" not appeal to a lovestruck princess?

For Crys, however, Nikopol is an essential. Our fight-happy prince needs a good beat and battle rap while he's kicking ass.

Playlists in progress:

Phantasy II
Vengence (The Pact)


Blue Jeans
Been Caught Stealing
Kiss Them for Me
Fools Gold
Groove is in the Heart
Love Shack
Thieves in the Temple
Lips Like Sugar
Mysterious Ways
Buffalo Stance

Phantasy Star III

Princess Kara
Moonlight Densetsu
I Like You

Laya (elder and younger)
Elegant Force

Lithium Flower

Kokoro Masaki Mix


Eternal Flame

Dark Force
Fools of Damnation

Oh fun! I actually made short playlists for several PSII characters that I was going to add to each new chapter of my "Princess Anastasia" story. I scrapped the idea, but I bet I saved those old playlists, which had music appropriate to not only the characters but also fit the era when PSII was released (songs from about 1988-1991). I'll dig them up!

Right off the bat I remember that Shir's playlist included "Been Caught Stealing" by Jane's Addiction (self-explanatory) and "Kiss Them for Me" by Siouxsie and the Banshees, which epitomizes both Shir's high-society status and her punky, carefree side.

For ages, I've always thought of Rolf whenever I've heard Radiohead's Lucky. The chorus even starts, "Pull me out of the aircrash, pull me out of the lake".

Other than that, I'm usually really bad at things like this. I guess I'll go flip through my iTunes for inspiration...

Almost forgot to add this one!

Elder Laya would have Elegant Force on her MP3 player, and so would Laya the Younger, once she grew into her awesome a bit. They're both classy, elegant, powerful ladies, and need appropriate music when they're doing their thing.

I was randomly browsing about, and when I came across this old song, I immediately thought of Neifirst. Vengence (The Pact) by Blue Oyster Cult. It was written for an 80s era animated movie, but was rejected because it was extremely close to the story of the Taarna vignette. It's a story of revenge, and while we see her actions as wrong, she likely saw the release of the biomonsters as simply exacting the suffering she went through as a rejected test subject.

C'mon folks, we should be able to do this pretty easy.

Know what's on Dark Force's MP3 player? Fools of Damnation by Epica. Listen to the lyrics and tell me it wouldn't be. Go ahead.

Adding some songs to the playlists, and hoping to inspire!

For Princess Kara: I Like You
My version of Princess Kara. While it's resolved now, well, she had a helluva time getting there!

For poor Miun: Kokoro Masaki Mix
If you ask me, poor Miun has a heart. A heart of silicon, but still a heart.

For Shir: Blue Jeans
Her smirk. I swear, it fits her perfectly!

For Mieu: Lithium Flower
Well, it's a bit out there, but Mieu's a beauty, and I'm sure lithium is involved somewhere in her design!

For Orakio: Soldiers
He always struck me as leader who leads from the front, who never asked his soldiers to do something he wouldn't.

Here's a short, era-authentic playlist for Shir. All songs were released from about 1988-1991. I see Shir as having a sort of carefree, modern bohemian edge to her, but she's still a party girl at heart, so there are plenty of club songs here. Songs were picked based on a combination of lyrics, titles and sound.

Fools Gold - The Stone Roses:

Been Caught Stealing – Jane’s Addiction:

Kiss Them for Me – Siouxsie & The Banshees:

Groove is in the Heart – Deee-Lite:

Love Shack – B-52’s:

Hippychick – Soho:

Thieves in the Temple – Prince ... mple/41924

Lips Like Sugar – Echo & The Bunnymen

Mysterious Ways – U2:

Buffalo Stance – Neneh Cherry:
(For those that don't know, Shir is doing a buffalo stance in her in-game portrait. That's why this one was chosen.)

That song doesn't seem to fit any PS character that I can think of. The closest, I think, would be Shir, who seems the most likely to user her sexuality to her benefit and not give a damn about who she might be hurting in the process. I don't really see her as "bitchy," though. The other characteristics mostly suit her, though Shir seems more clever than that song suggests.

See, I thought the same thing, with the same caveats. Oh, well! *junks song*
