Which song drives you?

I’ll keep this topic short, just wanted to know what song in particular drives your emotions?

In other words, when you are sad, what brings you up? Or rather, when you are calm, what pumps you up?

You catch the drift. If you aren’t particularly attached to a specific song, anything around that genre? I’m interested in seeing the music selection of me fellow forum members.

Anyway, feel the music, explain a little of its connection to you and post it below!

Let’s do this!

Trophies (Tim Gunter Remix) by Drake has the perfect flow to keep up with my adrenaline. Listening to this makes me feel confident and ready make some hard reads and come back from one pixel of life on KI.

Rude by MAGIC! is such a stupid song, its as if someone randomly generated a band/song and plopped them there. Always get a great laugh, so naturally it cheers me up.

Just for the heck of it… this is actually quite embarrassing to admit but this song really immerses me into the rhythm, helps me feel the flow per say. Thanks @oDragonSpirit. I blame you for this.


@oTigerSpirit, I’m surprised you didn’t choose this one. :frowning:


Lol I should’ve! That’s his healing theme, his speed theme is pretty good too.

There’s basically too many songs I love so I’ll only list two.

  1. I’m Back (To Rise)

When Mick uploaded this theme, I was dancing the entire time! Like seriously, nothing pumps me up more than a well orchestrated song about making a big comeback.

  1. In Spite of One’s Age ~Ver. Immortal~

I just love listening to this song in the daytime (of course when the sky is blue and the sun is out)! Everything about this theme just feels right in terms of quality and sounds. It makes want to keep on moving forward and stay positive about life.


Village of Whispers.


Ok I’ll share mine!

Ok. So songs that I usually listen to when I need to make a MASSIVE comeback, in real life and Video Games:

Super Sayian Vegeta Theme

Sometimes pulling off the coolest thing requires you to tap into your full potential, deep inside you to achieve that goal, so why not have one of the coolest themes in DBZ help you?

IRL, When someone tells you something to do that there may be a choice or choices that you might make a fool of yourself for laughs, or something that may make you feel guilt later, (Like not washing the dishes) why not ponder your final decision with this?

Okay, I should probably stop there. Too many songs in the world! Sorry for any typos. Did this on my phone right before I had to go charge it. :slight_smile:


Solid list GG, I can say I have listened to a majority of these songs! I won’t lie that I chuckled a bit when I saw “Kung Fu Fighting”, as a Jago main I can instantly see myself ding full screen Windkicks throughout the entirety of this song.

Also, I always get choked up when I hear Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwo’ole. It’s so peaceful and beautiful that I can’t help but get a little twinkle under the eye.

Honorable mention to Roar, always admired Katy Perry’s work, plus its a pretty good song.

Music is awe-inspiring, so it’s only natural that their are too many songs. I’m Back is such a sick song! I did listen to it a lot when it first came out but because it is naturally TJ’s theme, I don’t find myself as attached. Still, this song along the entire soundtrack of KI is on my music library.

I feel you, it certainly does give off that vibe! I have always loved KOF soundtracks, namely 99’ because of the nostalgia associated with one of the first few fighting games I played when I was younger. This song takes me back…

I actually am not a big fan of this song, well I am but not as much as I should’ve been. That can because the Ultra theme of this song is so obnoxiously ear-piercing that the song itself lost a little of its charm. Nonetheless, I still have it among my library.

Lol I see you’re into DBZ, good theme - Vegeta was my favorite character when I used to watch it a lot before. Can we expect you in an exclusive “going super sayian” video lol

Dude, you’re killing me :joy:

You nailed the topic by adding everything for a mood and with variety! Wow. I can see you’re into really rock, grudge and metal until I stumbled across It’s Tricky by Run DMC lol nice bit of surprise there.

I know its tough to pick songs over all these but is there anything you want to highlight?


Don’t blame me for that, you like it cause you fall in love with a member in that group :rage:
JK I really like SNSD’s songs. They have many nice and catchy songs that make me happy.
