What songs (name one or two of your favorites) bring your kin-side to the surface?


Recommended Posts

I listen to a lot of rock, and always have, though recently I have found a few songs that really bring my wolf side out. "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails (VERY EXPLICIT, NOT MEANT FOR LITTLE EARS), "All My Life" by Foo Fighters (Somewhat explicit, much better than "Closer") and "Cut the Cord" by Shinedown (Clean but awesome song). These bring out the hunting- or fight-ready side, as they are high energy with a great beat, but other songs like "Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day is a more chill one for me.

"Golden Eyes" by Mercedes Lackey - it gives good tingles, probably even more so for werecats since it's literally about them, but it's not very primal or anything.

"Creature of the Wood" by Heather Alexander - that one gets the feral blood pumping for me. Heavy satyr energy here.

Finally! Someone else who likes Heather Alexander! I like "March of Cambreadth" for a pump-up song. I didn't know that Mercedes Lackey was a songwriter or singer, I thought she was just an author, but I will check that out!

I'm the kind of person who will listen to about anything, a lot of my standard choices for music don't really trigger anything. Instrumental music, ones that have kind of a mysterious/dark atmosphere can cause some kind of reaction. I sometimes listen to compilations of music to bring out my kin-side if I haven't had a shift in a while.

This should come as no surprise that the theme and ending tracks from Sonic Forces = phantom shifts, among other things. Fist Bump and The Light of Hope, I mean.

 

(I suppose this isn't really the same since I'm a soulbond, not fictionkin, but any of the songs that have been assigned as my themes in the games make me very happy. Endless Possibility is definitely a favourite.)

songs that bring out my kin: 'monster' by imagine dragons and probably 'come along' by Cosmo Sheldrake

I also really like 'soldier, poet, king' by the oh hellos but i don't know why.

 

P.S i listened to 'closer' by nine inch nails, definitely not for little ears! (brilliant song though)

Glad I put the warning, but I like Monster by Imagine Dragons too!

"Eyes on Fire" by Blue Foundation has been getting me lately. It reminds me of warm, dark nights in nature (particularly the desert, the jungle, and/or the beach) and the drawn-out vocalizations remind me of howling. Lines like "felling any foe with my gaze / steadily emergin' with grace" remind me of how dingos are Australia's apex predator. Nothing intensely primal, but definitely moody and atmospheric.

 

I definitely get real mental-shifty with "Young and a Menace" by Fall Out Boy - I was drawn to it initially because it reminded me of how angsty I was as a teen (as the title implies about the song's subject matter). However, when I hear the instrumental transition from the bridge to the chorus... I have to be very conscious of if I'm ready to handle it when driving because the chorus and general high/low of the song's pace puts me in a sort of trace. It's powerful for me.

I can't explain why, but ambient, somewhat melecholic songs always make me feel super shifty . . . well, that and tribal music with woodwinds and stuff, but it's no surprise why those do it for me.

 

Here are some of my favorites

Also, this version of Hallelujah. Again, no idea why it works. Just does.

Music is made by humans, and tends to bias me toward the human side. I'm more likely to find one with relevant lyrics than one that actually makes me shifty. Anyway here are my picks this round.

 

 

Since that one is depressing, I'll add this one too:

 

Red Tailed Hawk Therian / Polymorph / Spirit Being / Anthro Hawk / Deitykin

 

Shard of Heru AKA Horus

Songs like
that have a calm yet happy vibe tend to do it for me. Not entirely sure why, maybe because I have to be in a good mood to shift? Alternatively, certain folk or indie songs can do it too, especially if they have some sort of animal-related theme anyway, like

Two songs: "The Voice" by Celtic Woman and "Stray" by Steve Conte. There are also celtic songs that make me feel more wild and attatched to nature that I have in a playlist on YouTube. For the curious, that playlist can be found here:

Oh, I love these kinds of threads! I'm surprised I haven't noticed it before! For me I do have a few that can help trigger a specific mantra and energy focus, some types more than others. :3 These two songs help me with Kaii's specific energies. I really get a good connection when I listen to it!

No specific song, but Kraftwerk is an entire machinekin mood. Their entire aesthetic since the 1960s has been "we are robots and we are singing about technology, science, and the future." They even have this song where they're like "we are robots" and "we are man machines" (in German, of course).

 

The Glitch Mob and Basshunter (along with songs Basshunter inspired, basically 2007 trance eurovision edm) really put me in a machinekin mood as well.

I know this song is popular right now but...this honestly does for Leland?

I do not think I have a song that brings my kin-side out.

But LOTR and Hobbit music always bring my kith-side as wolf and crow to the surface.

It is not always black and white. Some beings are in between. Some seem nice but harm you from behind and others look evil but are loyal friends.
