This is a Near fanmix, made at [ profile] elisabell_angel's request, at this meme. It was very difficult for me to find songs that reminded me of Near--initially I only had one in mind. Some of it may not make immediate sense to those of you who aren't sharing my brain, but it's all music I consider excellent, and I hope you feel it's a good fit and enjoy the mix!


Human Behavior - The Decemberists

/if you ever get close to a human/
/and human behavior/
/be ready to/ready to get confused/

A Most Peculiar Man - Simon & Garfunkel

/he had no friends/he seldom spoke/
/and no one in turn ever spoke to him/
/cause he wasnt friendly/and he didn't care/
/and he wasnt like them/oh no/he was a most peculiar man/

To Cure A Weakling Child - Aphex Twin

/my feet/my arms/and my ears/and you feet/

He Lives In You - The Lion King 2

/he lives in you/he lives in me/
/he watches over/everything we see/
/into the water/into the truth/
/in your reflection/he lives in you/

Near - Taniuchi Hideki

That´s a beautiful little OST! Thanks for taking the time to make one for Near. I remember you using Most Peculiar Man for his video, and I agree that the song fits him so well. And yes, his own theme is really pretty effing perfect for him. XD

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was really difficult, Near doesn't live in my head much, so not a lot of music has ever reminded me of him--the only one that did really strongly, right from the beginning, was the Aphex Twin one, and that's more about how it sounds than anything else. (Also, he barely ever stands up which leads me to believe he might have some kind of muscle weakness...he would actually have to, you lose muscle tone if you don't use your muscles.) Anyway yeah, I managed to do this after some thought, and I'm really glad it worked for someone who likes Near as much as you do! And yes, Near's own theme is certainly appropriate. If the character I'm making FSTs of have themes I do try to use those. :D

I'm letting you know, I've been literally devouring your fanmixes. I think I need to separate them from my speaky_music playlist.

Oh, if you were interested I have the version of "He Lives in You" that they recorded for Lion King's Broadway soundtrack. I think that's the only song from the sequel that they used.

XD; I'm so glad you liked them! I think I'm mostly doing this meme as an excuse to give out music. I'll definitely be putting up more, though I'm not sure if I'll be able to tackle every request. If you want to request something, feel free! :D

Yes, I would be absolutely interested, that would be awesomefantastic!! Thanks in advance!

Awesome - I love that the songs are of such different styles, and yet do all fit in a weird, sideways-on way (which in itself is appropriate for Near). I can't imagine Near would be easy to find music for.

*revels happily in Lion King 2 track, which she loves*

No, he wasn't. At first I really only had 'A Most Peculiar Man'...I actually made an AMV about him set to that song a while back. But it took me a long time to figure out the other ones. I haven't analyzed Near very extensively, so it was really a challenge. But I'm really glad that you thought what I had worked. :D And, an FST would be boring if they were all the same style, that's what I think. I made an effort to switch it up.

Eeek, I love Disney music. Lion King music is particularly lovely. Though I think my favorite Disney movie ever, and thus the one I like the songs from best, is "Hunchback of Notre Dame".

It works for Near as well that he is so odd that only one of the songs "matches" from a musical perspective, but they all kind of fit for him ^^

I haven't seen the Hunchback movie for years, but I do love "Heaven's Light/Hell Fire" and the introduction song - they're amazing!

I'm glad you thought they were appropriate! It's especially important to me that fans of Near think these songs are fitting. I'll admit I haven't thought about him very extensively, making this mix was quite the challenge for me. But I'm glad you thought it worked out. And yay, I hope there will be things you like in the music comm! :D
