I was meditating last night to Teardrop by Massive attack, when I suddenly put the song perfectly with this scene from the book Artemis Fowl when he was decoding knommish. All of the sudden, I got all these ideas for theme songs for AF Characters

  • Teardrop by Massive Attack (Artemis)
  • Paper planes by MIA (Holly Short)
  • Krptonite by 3 doors down (Butler)
  • For Opal, I had to find somthing deep yet crazy, so I picked a Lady Gaga song (Obsessed with her). I choosed poker face. Its just one of those songs I could see Opal singing to

Clocks by Coldplay (Foaly)

If you guys disagree or have anymore theme song ideas, just ask

  1. I haven’t heard the one for Artemis, but I know I’ve always though You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid by The Offspring fits him perfectly. Love your choice for Butler. For Holly I like She’s a Rebel by Green Day… oddly enough, your pick for Koboi is the same one I like for her. Although there’s a YouTube video that I love using a song from West Side Story for her… and Clocks is good for Foaly.

  2. I was thinking of another song for Artemis, its a really intresting song called feeling good by Michael Buble. It sounds evil…

  3. Ah, I’ve heard that… I still like the one by the Offspring for Artemis, though the one by Michael Buble is a very good song.

  4. Yay! She’s a Rebel rocks! (Oh.. there goes my brother -_-)… whatta ’bout Minnie?

    i think Artemis Butler’s (together not each) should be ‘Dog Days are Over’ by Florence and the Macine because it’s about some one running from happiness. (i think.) it sounds alot like a war song and it’s really fast temp so it sounds sorta crazy like some of the things they do. listen to it. 🙂

    Angeline and Artemis Sr should be another by her that’s called ‘you’ve got the love’. It’s just sort of made for them.

    I haven’t deserted James Morrison though. I still think Butler’s sould be ‘Cal the police’. it’s a geat song.

    i listened to the first two. I don’t agree wit you on teardrop. i do agree with you on paper planes because the words fit but i got bord half way through. (it’s just not my style but it does fit. I like indie rock 🙂 )

  7. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 1:37 pm 7

    wait i just read the comments (sorry for triple posting) and i love micheal buble so i will listen to that song.

  8. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 1:40 pm 8

    Its a beautiful song. My mums obsessed with him… She plays his CD every chance she gets whenever I’m not forcing her to play My lady gaga

  9. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 1:42 pm 9

    sounds pink panther ish. 😆

  10. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 1:46 pm 10

    i don’t know wether i like Lady GaGa or not… i do hate ‘just dance’ though. For two reasons. 1) she beat James Morrison to the top ten song early in 2009 with that song and 2) it’s about getting so hammerd that you don’t know what the hell’s going on. But that’s a matter of opinion. I guess you could look at it another way.

  11. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 1:46 pm 11

    I listened to dog days are over. The girls voice is beautiful! did you hear her cover for Halo?

  12. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 2:05 pm 12

    Ain’t No Rest For the Wicked – Cage the Elephant
    (Its about evil people with bad reputations)
    It kinda reminds me of Artemis….

  13. I’ve heard that… kinda fits. By the way, if you’re listening to these, stay away from You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid if you don’t like… explicit language, shall we say.

    I also like What I’ve Done or Breaking the Habit (both by Linkin Park) for Artemis. I also like Minority by Green Day for Holly… and I for Koboi I can’t choose between Bleed it Out by Linkin Park and Peacemaker by Green Day after Pokerface…

  14. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 2:24 pm 14

    In the end seems like a song you would hear during a part of a book…

    Hmmm, now that i think of it, In book 6 when Artemis told Holly he lied to her about the spelltrophy,I was thinking of that song

  15. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 2:50 pm 15

    Florence + the Macine is wicked.
    i think for that scene in book 6 you can fit in ‘I’m not calling you a liar’ it fits well.

    ‘i’m not calling you a liar, just don’t lie to me.
    i’m not calling you a theif, just don’t steal from me.
    I’m not calling you a ghost, just stop hauntig me’ the song sounds evil.

  16. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 3:08 pm 16

    what about The Only Night by James Morrison for Holly on the bit where Julius dies. It’s a livly song. But it sounds like holly thinking about the situation

  17. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 3:18 pm 17

    I highly agree.
    plus James Morrison is hot! 🙂

  18. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 3:40 pm 19

    *Coughhachcough* now i’m going to say somthing but you sould take it the ‘visual’ way not the ‘fit’ way that you guys all seem to talk about. He’s strangly good looking. for some one who seems to have a strange nose.

    now i ment that he looks NICE. okay. n.i.c.e. not hot or fit. Just a nice guy.
    though in his late teens till about 23 he had wery strange hair and i really wish someone who knew him could of told him that his hair was a bit um… long, and curly. and made him look a bit weird. But he FIXED IT! in the awards! he cut it! but then he cut it again for his new album cover and it’s gone strangly black. Or is that ust me?

  19. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 3:42 pm 20

    ‘j’ typoo there. That was just not ust sorry.

  20. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 3:46 pm 21

    *is quietly admitting to small James Morrison obsession.*
    Actually an obsession to anyone by the name of James it seems. Please dont kill me but i like the world’s most annoying singer, James Blunt. James Potter is my 3rd faveroute HP charicter. and then there’s James Morrison. Oh God. They are taking over the world. hang on. there’s not someone in ‘take that’ or ‘elbow’ who’s name is james is there? please say no.

  21. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 3:47 pm 22

    how could we forget about James May?

  25. Beckett Simple-toon January 1st, 2010 at 5:12 pm 26

    oh god. haaaay james may and morrison arn’t on there but blunt is. I’m not his friend anymore.

  26. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 6:05 pm 27

    I copied and pasted it when I was half asleep… hahaha…

  27. HOLLY:

  28. Wowthatsgenius January 1st, 2010 at 6:39 pm 29

    Kelly Clarkson reminds me of Holly with blond hair.

  29. Ooooh I like this. I ammmmmmmssssssoooooo keeeping this.

    Animal I have become by 3 days grace

  30. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 12:13 am 31

    never heard that song…. Ill have to listen to it

  31. Check Yes Juliet by We The Kings seems like a song for Arty and Holly.

    WHEEEEE!!!! I LIKE SUGAR!!!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

  32. I have to say it- I think that Poker Face makes no sense as a possible choice for Opal Dx Nothing personal. I was just ” . . . Wait-what?!”. It’s not really about anything Opal cares to much about . . . I find that anytime I hear a Selena Gomez song (the only good thing to come out of recent Disney) I automatically think “Oh, wonderful. Another Opal song”. 🙂 But, hey, your opinion.

    “Do You Wanna Date My Avatar”, by the Guild for Foaly XD

    And, my FAVORITE A/H song is “Saltwater City” from Owl City.
    She: “So, tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?”
    He: “All the time.”
    Both:”All the time.”

    “Know Your Enemy” by Greenday reminds me of Holly 🙂

    I also really don’t get the Paperplanes, one “I fly like paper, get high like plans, if you catch me at the border I’ve got papers in my name”. I just . . . don’t get it. I don’t get the song. I’m more of a screamo fan. Sorry Dx

    But, hey, doesn’t Andy Sixx from Black Veil Brides look almost like Artemis(you know, without his epiccaly hot make up)?

  33. O.o My comment disappeared…

    What I said was, Know Your Enemy is probably my second choice for Holly after Minority, and do you guys like Horseshoes and Handgrenedes by Green Day for Koboi?

  34. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 5:09 am 36

    HMMMM, I’ll have to check that out. I think he might look like the lead singer of Greenday minus the makeup,becuase the lead singers all pale and he has really short black raven hair like artemis.
    I usually find that people like greenday for the action-ey characters of AF (Which I agree with). Greenday has alot of good music, so I could imagine one of their songs being hollys theme song

  35. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 5:13 am 37

    search the Unicron song by 1-800 zombies (I feel like it could be foalys theme song, but it sounds really weird and ur gonna crack up if u listen)

  36. ive not heard all of the songs. but when i heard it i thought Circus by Britney Spears fit Opal really good.
    i’m going to try to listen to all these songs which will take forever.
    wish me luck

  37. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 7:21 am 39

    theres atleast 20 different songs on the list … all of them are good

  38. My comments keep disappearing, and I think it may be because of the song title, so I’ll try this. Y’know that Green Day song off 21st Century Breakdown called Horseshoes and …. ? I think that works for Koboi.

  39. Bloody ‘ell you have been inside my head haven’t you. I had this idea like forever ago…. I always thought that thebsong One Girl Revolution fit Holly to…..

  40. Yeah, that fits. My comments on this keep disappearing… but there’s one song by Green Day that I think fits Koboi really well… but whenever I type the title, the comment disappears. Let’s just say the first line is “I’m not ****ing around”. If you know the song, that should be enough.

  41. Beckett Simple-toon January 2nd, 2010 at 5:14 pm 43

    hi erm I got the first two twilight books inase anyone can tell me if they are good cos i read the intro bit so far and that seemed quite good.

  42. They’re good at first, then when you really stop to think about the plot/chjaracters it’s like “What kind of s*** am I reading?!?”

    And Andy Sixx looks like that, if I remember correctly, and he has BIG eyes (that might be the eyeliner, though)

  43. Beckett Simple-toon January 2nd, 2010 at 5:55 pm 45

    who’s andy sixx? if he’s on the cover then i got the one that lookes like Artemis fowl holding an apple for some strange reason.

  44. TWS, I just listened to Saltwater Room, and it definitely fits.

    What do you guys think about… dangit, I had a good one for Butler, but I forgot it… ah right, Human by The Killers. Whaddaya think?

  45. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 6:42 pm 47

    good song…
    idk why your comments keep disapearing.
    I think the editors are tired of some many people posting but I dont really care.
    BTW- who got to listen to the unicorn song by 1-800-zombies?

  46. I just listened to it… is strange…

  47. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 10:49 pm 49

    yeah… I want to give it to a really messed up character…. maybe I’ll give it to myles or beckett

  48. Wowthatsgenius January 2nd, 2010 at 10:53 pm 50

    Oh and I know someone who acts just like Artemis….
    House XD
    I’m sorry but sometimes house can remind me of Artemis

  49. @TWS: About Twilight- You read my mind. i loved them and then I re read them and i was like ‘what the eff is going on?’

    @wtg: Yes House is kind of an Artemis character…

  50. 50th comment dance: Interesting choces. Even more interesting is the fact that this was posted yesterday and it already has 50 comments.

  51. Perfect song for Holly- Independent Woman by Destiny’s Child.

  52. Beckett Simple-toon January 6th, 2010 at 4:32 pm 54

    Hmmm. How about Snow Patrol erm i think it’s called ‘You could be Happy’ or ‘Happy’ or somthing like that for Angeline in the first book?

  53. I agree with behind these hazel eyes by kelly… funny story bout that. I had one of those old Now CD’s. One i haven’t listened 2 in years… I wanted 2 write a song fic, so i found the CD from my backpack, chose that song, not knowing what it was about (it could have been about suicidal bunnies and purple ponies) and looked up the lyrics and wrote a songfic.
    I also think One Minute By Kelly Clarkson. It kind of fits root’s death and the whole save the world thing… also…
    4 minutes by Madonna and Justin Timberlake. i love the line “The road 2 hell is paved w/ good intentions” it reminds me when Arty lied 2 Holly.

  54. Sorry! That was really LONG!

  55. IwishIwasafaerie January 8th, 2010 at 3:02 am 57

    I like this I think the one you chose for Opal was cool. I think She’s A Lady by Forever The Sickest Kids is a great song for A/O.
    everyone: *gasp*
    Me: Yes I ship them. I ship A/H more of course. ;D But A/O so dark and fun.
    @TWS I think Saltwater Room is cool. 😀
    @Cookieninja Check Yes Juliet is awesome! I listened to irt and I luv it! But all the A/J shippers are gonna be like: “what? No. That’s A/J not A/H. Duh.” When probably only a third of them have heard it. 🙄

  56. Wowthatsgenius January 8th, 2010 at 3:40 am 58

    A/O could work out if Artemis goes evil again in book seven. I still luv A/H

  57. The Girl Who Is Slowly And Carefully Admitting To A Small (Rather Large) James Morrison Obsession. January 8th, 2010 at 11:35 am 59

    hmmm. it could be a bit of fun with A/O but i don’t think it would work even if he went all evily again.


  58. Okay, I thought of one for Butler. Soldier Boy. And you could to Jordan Sparks’ Battlefeild for Minnie when she realizes Arty hates her.

  59. omg wenevr i hear banana phone( i think of mulch or opal hudling in a corner of some mental prison place lol
