My Sweet Sixteen – Song Choices (Thank the Mighty God Named Pandora) [Part 1]

by creamsikkle

These are some of the Songs that I have chosen out of, literally, hundreds; they are the songs that I feel most accurately portray the mood of the story at certain times. What of Whom the song speaks for can vary. It can be what a certain character is feeling after or during an event, or what one person feels towards another. It can also simply just fit the moment best. For example, When Tame, the main character from My Sweet Sixteen (I finally decided on her name! – this IS final.) plays the piano for her father, she plays the song Claire De Lune, and a series of scenes are shown, mostly consisting of nature scenery.

Anyway, here are the songs, and I would really appreciate it if everyone would go through and listen to these songs. If you can’t understand what the artist is saying, look up the lyrics and follow along. Almost all of them can be found on YouTube, or online elsewhere. If you have trouble finding a version with good quality, or have difficulty locating a version at all, comment and I will leave a link in reply.

If there is an asterisk ( * ) next to the song, it means I have a specific vision, or ‘music video’ made up of a series of clips that tells a story as the music plays. It’s in sync, and the lyrics are relevant. PLEASE NOTE – because I am a horrible author and updater, (and fail to do so even when I say I will more often…) I will create a PART 2 with all the songs marked with an asterisk, telling what exactly is happening during the song.

Please comment if you have any questions, or if you’ve got a good song you think I should listen to in regards to any sort of situation or controversy in the story. (For example, Suss, a song that explains the relationship of Paece and Hoth might be ‘I LOVE YOU – BUT ONLY WHEN NO ONE CAN SEE US’ whereas a song expressing Mac and Charlie might be….. ‘EXCUSE ME WHILE I SLIDE MY HAND DOWN YOUR PANTS WHILE THE SMALL CHILDREN WATCH’…..if you…know what I mean XD. Anyway, enjoy, and as always, I PROMISE TO UPDATE MORE – and I’ll try harder this time around… = __ =
