"I Won't Get In My Way"

Do you know who I am
Did you follow the change
Am I part of your plan to stay the same
I'm not that man

I've worm out my shoes
On sacred ground
My point of view is not straight down
Like I see you

Viva la strange take a bite of Eden's apple
Against the grain and away from the madness

I don't want to burn the life of my candle
Waiting around for a better day
I'll take a chance on fates middle finger
And be someone I've never been

Don't want to be another pretender
Not gonna to lie to save my face
I wanna' leave the thieves in the temple
And go somewhere out of this place
I won't get in my way, this time

Viva la strange take a bite of Eden's apple
Beyond the frame and out of the pretty picture

Listen!!!! (http://youtu.be/DWgMsg_2bT4)

Best part for UBI, Mr. Big (a phenomenal band) although HUGE around the world, is not in the states. So they may be willing to allow use of this song cheap, for the potential US market reintroduction.


Thoughts?

I'm pretty sure Assassin's Creed made you think of all those songs. But this song :

*puts on sunglasses*

..Makes you think of Assassin's Creed.
YEEEAAAAAHHH!


I swear this song still gives me goosebumps. I always imagine Altair/Ezio performing a leap of faith after the part where the singer goes "Servant to the sun....." at 2:35.

I wouldn't say this song would fit the entire series but I get an 'Ezio vibe' from it. At least I think it does but I spend too much time listening to music sooo...

The Tea Party-The Halcyon Days (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Epo-m185jeo)

Lyrics:

Alone, left here in dust
amidst my fears and doubts
life's shattered dreams I could have
gone without
now chthonic life has set its sights on
making me a slave to its ways
I wait for return
until then my soul it burns
and it burns only for you...

Iíll be with you soon...

Night it falls on me endlessly
and I search for you in this blindness
I'm a prodigy of lust and loss
'till sleep comes down

I can't explain, this disdain remains
this treason I can't reason
they left me here for dead my dear
barely breathing, but I'm still breathing

Now I see a light
it's shining from above
I think they've finally come
the halcyon days

I'm crawling now up
towards the sound
vengeance moves so swiftly
Iíve conquered fear
Iíve shed my tears
now Iím seething, barely breathing

Now I see a light
shining from above
I think theyíve finally come
the halcyon days

Note: some of the lyrics are off but none of the sites had a perfect transcript.

I am so glad that most of the people posting in this thread, OP included, are not working on the soundtrack for the game. Save for wiccanlovely, whose song choice could fit rather well.

Best suggestion yet in my opinion http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

For in game, I think having any 'pop'* song would be wrong [in memories] .. it would break the feeling and atmosphere..

For the modern parts - maybe a song could kick in at a certain part - say on a chase..

But I personally don't see the space for a 'pop*' song...


* pop meaning popular music - which any track suggested would be, I prefer original scores http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I very much agree with that. Jesper Kyd is a musical genius. Like I said earlier, I just like finding songs that'd make a good music video/trailer for the game and remind me of a character.

I don't think I'd like to see any modern song already in existence actually in the game. Though I know Prince of Persia: Warrior Within used a vocaless version of Godsmack's song 'I Stand Alone' at certain points. I think that might be an exception.

I'll await the 'he has to say that!' post's...


LOL

I agree about the idea, for trailers etc.. but not in game.. [nothing stopping anyone making a fan trailer / game play with it though - always fun to watch!]

But in the 'real' game.. no...

Tbh music adds so much to any game not just AC, that altering it or taking it out would lose that emotional 'impact' you get when you first hear the strings start or when you see a huge vista with some Jesper Kyd theme in the background...



Same as the first time you heard the Halo theme kick in.. it adds so much to a game, that altering it at this stage, could ruin it..

yeah, i agree.

for the trailers is a very intersting idea, but in-game jesper is the best guy to the songs.

it's not just me, but my mom also love the soundtrack from ac series.

to be honest, i thought that this thread was about trailer songs.

Actually I don't think they're appropriate for the trailers either, although since they're designed to be more appealing to the mainstream/casual gaming audience it's a fairly good indicator of where the series is going.

@Mr_Shade: He has to say that!!!!!

On topic: Some of these would probably make good trailer songs or music videos. However, there are some that have no place in the soundtrack for the game. Like the rap and the metal, and maybe even the rock (this coming from an avid rock fan). Just sayin'.

wow... this thread got big over the weekend.

Personally I agree that Kyd has done an awesome job, BUT at the same time the OCD musician in me says that there's always room for improvement (probably why I listen to a lot of progressive rock/metal).

I will say though that the whole 'no popular music' thing is hooey, as Woodkid's 'Iron' is used in the official E3 trailer, and whether it was popular before the trailer or not it's still not an in house production or original score.

That in mind this (http://youtu.be/5hDs6mCVAKs) would be perfect for a chase scene. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Please examine my original post, in which I point out a band/song that is NOT popular in today's U.S. market.

I read it just fine. What you're saying is if it's not and original score or in house production it's popular?

Woodkid Iron can, in no way be considered the same genre as today's poular music. I really don't know what you're trying to say.

Anyway, to everything after ')'
