What the frock is Darksider you may ask? well its a fanfiction that i have been writing, well i finished writing it like aggggeesssss ago, but i just finished posting it the other day. Um there are other ning people on here reading (hi!!) and im pretty sure they dont want to read my usual ramblings, though you guys all (pfft yeah you all) probably dont want to eaither, but thats why i called it ramblings of a wolfchild. Ok sarah, restrain yourself…
Just in alphabetical order.
Blood by The Middle East, at the time i was writing, i didnt really like the song, i had it (i got it from a free download for Triple J) but i hadnt really listened to it and so a few months ago i finally listened to it and i liked it it and the lyrics were pretty relevant.
Darkside Of The Sun by Tokio Hotel, well this song is a no brainer. Its pretty much the inspiration the whole story. The darkside of the sun is where most of the story takes place and bill is a darksider.
Forgotten Children by Tokio Hotel. The forgotten children or Vergessene Kinder are the founders of the city of dreams which is kinda a reality that Bill gets in to read Cyrah’s dreams.
The Great Escape by We Are Scientists. Well this is kinda just a random track that kinda made sense, its helped me with the chapter ‘The Not So Great Escape”
The Greatest View by Silverchair inspiration for the chapter ‘The Greatest View,’ obviously. Uh the reason to this is because when Bill took Cyrah up to throne room and showed her the view, Bill was in front of her and just imagine it, Bill in this spectacular landscape, the sun bouncing off his hair and the wind flipping it back….
Hearts a Mess by Gotye. First off, i want to acknowledge what an amazing song this is, apparently it took ages to record because of the so many layers. This track is the inspiration for the chapter ‘Hearts a Mess,’ who would have guessed, lol, but seriously, i really suck at naming the chapters. Ok, back to the subject, Cyrah’s heart was a mess because Bill had just betrayed her, but she still loved him, plus bill had just killed his twin…
Heilig (meaning holy) by Tokio Hotel, Cyrah is ‘Das Heilige’ which apparently means the holy one, but sorry to any Germans out there shaking their heads, i just chucked it in a translator.
Hung Out To Dry by Fu Manchu, name of the chapter ‘Been Hung Out To Dry’ explanation.. well she was tortured by a strechy thing, they actually used to use that, back in the day, with many other horrible forms of torture, how do i know this, because i went to the wax museum in QLD and there was two sections.
Ich Bin Nich’ Ich by Tokio Hotel, in chapter 11 ‘Occurrences’ Bill sung to her at night and thats what he sung. I originally had Rette Mich in there but i changed it to IBNI coz it was more relevant.
Liebe Ist Für Alle Da by Rammstien, means Love Is For All, it was a bit of a hint for what would happen in the final chapter (Bill admitting his love for Cyrah)
Little Secrets by Passion Pit, For the chapter ‘Little Secrets’ the ‘little’ secrets werent little at all, they were pretty big actually( that The Prodigy
Omen by The Prodigy, the song its self has nothing to with the story, (i just chose it coz it’s one of my favourite songs) its the band name that has relevance. The Prodigy (Tom) is the overseer, you could say, of the sun. The word prodigy means an unusually gifted or intelligent person.
Phantomrider by Tokio Hotel, in the story Phantomriders only make a small appearance, but they are like imagine fowl fat bikey pig creatures. They were the enemies in the Great War and a little bit of information that you may or may not need, they were banished to one of the sides of the sun, the darkside.
Reden by Tokio Hotel, again another irrelevant song, but relevant artist. The song is a bit more relevant because of the the things mentioned in the song. The chapter that it most applies to is chap 7 ‘Bill’s Living quarters’ because, it talks about the ‘Tokio Hotel',’ in which he lives and what room he lives in; 483, which coincidently has a link to TH’s 2nd album Zimmer 483 (room 483)
Secret Alphabet by Kasabian, not the best song out there, but it totoally clicked when i was thinking for a name of the ‘sign’ language.
The Serpentine by The Dee Dee Dums (Tame Impala before they were, Tame Impala, lol) The serpentine is the bird bath thing, that the perpetual serpent comes out of.
Träumer By Tokio Hotel, Träumer means dreamer and so its relevant to call the fortune teller, Mirella, Träumer.
Übers Ende Der Welt by Tokio Hotel means over the end of the world. UEDW is a place of sanctum and peace, where all the sunsiders can go to to trade and pray, or whatever they do, and it’s also a portal.
Unendlichkeit by Tokio Hotel, is where Mirella lives and the city of dreams is found between it and 1000 meere. It also is never in the same place and it gets its light from mars so that’s why Bill can travel there.
Where Eagles Have Been by Wolfmother. First off, i really think you should check out this song, it’s amazing and no offence to Tom Kaulitz, but that is a real guitar solo, though Tom dosent do solo’s so its amazing when he does. Um anyways, what has this to do with Darksider? well this city of dreams i’ve been talking about, that’s in the song somewhere. What is the city of dreams? well it’s a reality that bill must travel too to get into Cyrah’s dreams.
Word On The Street by Pussy XXX, so i’ve probably already told all of you this, but my cousin’s girlfriend plays bass in the band and um i think you should totally check them out! Another random title song, chapter 14, and why is it the title, coz some random guy says that “Word on the street is Das Heilige is here.”
1000 Meere by Tokio Hotel, like die Unendlichkeit 1000 Meere it is a reality place. I havent really though much about it yet coz it hasnt really been important, but hey, if you guys decide you want a sequel, maybe i’ll have to think about it…
and now, that concludes the darksider playlist, thanks for reading xx. sarah.
