Thread: Music in the game... Do you like it? What do you want to hear?

    Music in the game... Do you like it? What do you want to hear?

    We're all aware of how awesome the music in LiS is! I'd just like to know what y'all think of it, what your favorite tracks are, and what tunes you think they should include in future episodes. I personally thought the Amanda Palmer song was my fav song choice so far, although I love practically all the music in this game. As for songs I'd like to hear, here's a short list of tunes I think would fit well with my favorite episodic game ever:

    The Spring Standards - Only Skin
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=UoLEvg9QrGg

    The Milk Carton Kids - Michigan
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=WEDnGAvjQXw

    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DPL_SV3n7IU

    Anyway those are just my ideas... Please share yours! What do you think of the music so far, and what songs would you include if you were in control of that type of thing? Lemme know!

    I agree, the Amanda Palmer is pretty awesome. It's also my favorite song so far, although I also like the Angus & Julia Stone song from the fist episode.

    I really like the acoustics of all these songs.
    But this game has changed so much since the first episode. It's not as bright and cheery as these songs anymore.
    Only dark songs come to my mind now, when I think of this game's current state:

    Laura - Patterns Not People

    "What's this phase shift.. symmetry break?
    The new kids can't see the front of the stage."

    "Can't see, can't speak, for those who can.
    What's in this house, under the bed?
    What's in this stream, shallow and quick?
    A heart beats a billion times and then stops."
    Or these two instrumentals:

    Laura - Another Near Miss
    Laura - Studio Out Take One [You can't find this one on Youtube. It's a hidden song on Spotify]

    I enjoyed the music in episode 4 more than the previous episodes. I'm not very keen on the Jose Gonzalez type tracks that seemed to dominate the first few episodes, although they fit the mood perfectly. Loved the Amanda Palmer track suddenly appearing. I also liked whatever they were playing at the Vortex Club. It actually looked like quite a cool party, although not very health & safety aware!

    Jose Gonzalez's song Crosses was foreshadowing the bullying Kate was going through.
    All songs have meanings.

    I was not much in to accoustic guitar stuff until I started playing The Last of Us. Its simplicity and tones just added so much emotion and ambience. Life Is Strange is using a similar approach and Im loving it so much. Will buy the soundtrack if it comes out.

    I agree about The Last of Us's soundtrack - it's amazing. I can listen to it on loop for hours without getting tired of it.

    I like the more mellow songs from the earlier episodes, so I wouldn't mind hearing more of that sort of thing, but I agree that the story's gotten dark enough that they don't really fit the tone any longer. After playing the first two episodes of LiS, I started listening to the Life Is Strange playlist on Spotify.

    Nerd Alert.

    LIS inspired me to listen to music again. Honestly I hadn't really purposely listened to music in a long time. I ended up buying a mp3 type player so I could do things outside with the music from LIS. Max Caulfied inspired me to buy an mp3 player...LMFAO.

    I wouldn't even want to pick any music for this game because everything THEY have picked so far I liked.

    I was absolutely expecting that Amanda Palmer song to be the outro to the final episode or something.....was surprised to see it used kinda lightly when it actually did play.

    Some of the songs from these "unknown" bands might suit the game's current atmosphere too:
    .
    Northaunt - With The Stars As Witness [In big danger or a scary situation]
    Ulver - Lyckantropen Themes [Surreal like ambients]
    Ulver - The Moon Piece [Composition build up to make something sound bad/evil]
    Dorena - My Childhood Friend [If Chloe's somehow resurrected]
    September Malevolence - Who Watches The Watchmen

    The Microphones - Headless Horseman (since the devs said that the songs fit lyrically-wise too for the most part, I'd think of this song to be played when it comes to David. Maybe. I don't know. It just sounds good.)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Un7uBqt1WHA

    Eric's Trip - Sand (also again The Microphones because he did a good cover of that song)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6jXmMwJ1Ngo
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9u6CI_jYBmo

    Beirut - The Peacock
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EECTZ1Ikzk4

    Sigur Rós - Ísjaki (oh god that track.)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWOTKr5W_pQ

    Gregor Samsa - The Adolescent
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_i2UmRY5pA

    Some songs fit lyrically-wise, don't know about others. lol
    A lot of post-rock involved here, but oh wonder! This game is filled with post-rock.
    Also I've been writing some little acoustic songs more since LiS myself. Haha

    It's tough to make music blend in well with the scene. Depends on what's on the screen.
    But yeah, songs without lyrics are easier to choose from in that matter. I guess Dontnod will come up with
    an original score like the beginning of ep4. We'll see.

    Many of the songs, when I first heard them, i was not in to. But listening to them more and relating them to the game in my mind has changed that and i like it. Even the dark ambient moody stuff. The one song i can't stand is 'naughty' that Dana plays. It is cheese melted in cheese with more teen-pop cheese added to it.

    I love all the songs in the game! If there is a happy ending it would be amazing to here the song "Chloe" from Grouplove

    I just listened to that song. I can see how it would fit. Nice.

    Great topic!

    This game is really "americanized," and I kind of like the songs. But some are better than others.

    The "Menu (Main?) Theme" is pretty great. The first song Maxine listen to in the beginning of the game is good too. The one they play in the ending of the episodes too. Anyone know what songs are these?

    I do know the ep 1 songs: To All Of You and Obstacles by Syd Matters.

    Thanks

    Oh, that's the song. Good. "To All Of You."

    And "Obstacles" is interesting too. Goes well with EP1, really.

    This game is the best one I ever played that talked about bullies. Was touching and distinctively true.

    Is it bad that I'm obsessed with that song to the point that I know the lyrics word from word?

    I haven't heard that one quiet as much, but I agree.

    Are you from the US? This music is like a hymn to the USA girls. Like the "american dream" concept. From the outside, I know the feeling :P I believe the creators aren't americans too, isn't it?

    I'm american, but the creators (I assume you mean Dontnod) are French. I believe the musician is as well.

    How much of the lyrics are true to you? I think I never met an american girl personally.

    For me the most beautiful girls of this game are, first, Kate, following by Max and Chase (she could let her long hair).

    The lip-sync isn't good, indeed. But anyway, that's an interesting game.

    Just like that Catherine. Anyone played? That's a really good game.
