    Default Songs that make you think of X-Men

    I'm going to preemptively apologize if this thread exists already and I didn't see it.

    Sometimes when I'm listening to songs, I start to mentally associate them with specific characters. I'm curious as to if anyone else does this, and if so, what their picks are.


    I have several for Polaris as you might expect. One of them is the song "Vicious" by Halestorm specifically for her time possessed by Malice (Watch as I make the pain my mistress / You can call me Miss Malicious / I'll dress you up in stitches / No I cannot resist this). But the one I most feel like highlighting right now is "White Flag" by Bishop Briggs.



    Put an X on my chest, on my chest
    But I'm still standing 'cause I won't forget
    The hell on earth you put me through
    I'll save myself in spite of you

    Smoke, fire, it's all going up
    Don't you know I ain't afraid to shed a little blood?
    Smoke, fire, flares are going up, flares are going up
    For Quicksilver, I have a couple. One to talk about now is "Unbroken" by Missy Higgins.

    'Cause this is the day that everything changes
    And your world stops turning
    Running straight into the brake lights
    You've come to nothing
    This is the day that everything changes
    And your worlds collide
    And you know in time, you'll wake to find you're
    A little unbroken
    I have a couple for Iceman too. This time it's "Blue Caravan" by Vienna Teng.

    The highway is my great wall
    For my true love is a man
    Who never existed at all
    Oh he was a beautiful fiction
    I invented to keep out the cold
    But now, my blue blue caravan
    I can feel my heart growing Cold
    Last one. For Gambit, for some reason, it's "Oliver" by Gemma Hayes. I can't really explain it, cause I don't feel like it fits him, but it makes me think of him anyway. Maybe it's just that he has a cat named Oliver.


    I think these popped into my head because I got to know Pietro and Remy better via ANXF, and Iceman better via Astonishing X-Men by Marjorie Liu for the few panels Lorna was on his dedicated story arc.

    More character specific, "Back to Avalon" for late Excalibur-era Rachel:




    Where I'm going all my demons disappear
    I'm leaving them behind
    I'm travelling way up on the atmosphere
    'Cause I made up my mind

    Gonna find my love
    Gonna find my life
    Gonna look them so deep in the eye

    And the phoenix flies straight and high back to Avalon
    Now I'm on my way back where I belong

    And Melissa Etheridge's "Similar Features" for Maddie Pryor:



    Was it want with no desire?
    Was it smoke with no fire?
    Did I say it doesn't rip me apart?
    I lied
    I'm sorry dear my hands are tied

    Go on and close your eyes, go on imagine me there
    She's got similar features with longer hair
    And if that's what it takes to get you through
    Go on and close your eyes, it shouldn't bother you

    This one feels very late 90s! I could see it being a great theme song for a darker show or film set around then. Getting strong shades of Magneto's homo superior philosophy, and it's interesting to think of the X-Men trying to be the good guys in the kind of dark world I'm imagining.

    It's neat how the lyrics try to work in the various characters' codenames.

    Especially with the second stanza you quoted, I'm really seeing her in a different light now.
