The Wheel and The Butterfly music choices · 10:26pm Oct 26th, 2015

Heya Dan and Pinkie faithful,

First of all, if you’ve PMed me with a question or something and I haven’t gotten back to you, I apologize. I’m just juggling a busy schedule on top of writing and it sometimes takes me a while to get to letters.

On that note, someone asked me all the music I’ve used on The Wheel & The Butterfly. I’m gonna try to go through the fic to refresh my memory, but I might miss some. I’ll throw in a few songs I’ve yet to use as character themes. Feel free to chime in with your own ideas.

Coldplay – Paradise: Playing on Dan’s CD player at the end of part 2 because Chris brought over the CD (Dan hates the song and Chris for making him listen to it).

Queen – Best Friend: Dan plays a tape when he and Pinkie are in his car after an “evacuation” drill.

Flogging Molly – Devil’s Dance Floor: Sunset Shimmer and Flash’s song during the skating competition. I consider this Sunset’s theme.

Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now: Pinkie and Chris’s song during the skating competition.

The Mowgli’s – Great Divide: Pinkie and Dan go on a road trip to settle the score with Idaho.

The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles): “Montage” song of Dan working at the bakery with Pinkie and saving up for her birthday present.

Foo Fighters – Everlong (Acrostic) : Dan and Pinkie get their romance on.

Andrew W.K. – Party Hard!: The crew Vs. Terri-Man!

Smashing Pumpkins – Bullet with Butterfly Wings: Dan, Pinkie, Ninja Dave, Becky, and Mr. Mumbles go all Hellsing on some vampires.

Electrasy – Cosmic Castaway: Unused song because of timing issues. Dan & Pinkie in the Nexus.

The Offspring: Come Out Swinging: Dan Vs. Tok

Scissor Sisters – I Can’t Decide: Dan and Pinkie’s ringtone for one another.

Mindless Self Indulgence – Shut Me Up: Dan bakes the hell outa some pies.

Sofia Orchestra & Vassil Kazandjiev – “Comedian” Galop: Everyone running for their lives from a hoard of Pinkie clones.

The White Stripes – Seven Nation Army: Dan prepares for war (I basically consider this Dan’s theme).

Stealers Wheel – Stuck In The Middle With You: Ever watch Reservoir Dogs? That… plus a fight with a werewolf.

Andrew W.K. – Get Ready To Die: Pinkie and Dan* face off.

Tomoyasu Hotei: Battle Without Honor or Humanity: I don’t think I actually did anything with the song, but I could totally see Elise and Aria trying to kill each other to this.

Other songs:

Radiohead – Karma Police: Dan & Pinkie’s theme.

Fitz And The Tantrums – The Walker: Pinkie’s theme and also the them to Dan & Pinkie Take a Slice Out of Life.

Garbage – Vow: Elise’s theme.

Blink-182 – What’s My Age Again: Gibson’s theme, sorta. He’s actually kind of young for this, but eh… it fits him.

Nirvana – On a Plane: The Grrrrrrrrreat and Powerful Trixie! 

Paramore – Now: Aria’s Theme

Psychostick – The Dum Song: Sonata’s Theme

Sheryl Crow – If It Makes You Happy: Possible Adagio theme

Violent Femmes – Add it Up: Another possible Adagio theme

St. Motel – My Type: Another Adagio theme

That’s all I can think up now, but there’s probably some songs I’ve forgotten for people, plus much more I’m planning for the future.

Again, feel free to chime in with your own choices.

And, as always, thanks for reading!

Edit: Just remembered...

Duran Duran – Hungry Like the Wolf: Dan*'s theme.

Car trip tunes:

Disney – A Pirate's Life for Me
Row Row Row Your Boat
One Million Buckets of Oats on the Wall
I Know A Song that Will Get on Your Nerves
Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody
Offspring – Bad Habit
Fred Heatherton – I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts
Coldplay – Clocks

Not used but considered:

Norman Martin - The Song That Never Ends

You should make a playlist on youtube called Dan And Pinkie's Greatest Hits.

Personally, I could see this being Pinkamena's, Dan's, or Dan*'s theme music, considering the lyrics.

Or another possible suggestion could be...

Uhm, you did use the Song that Never Ends... It's right there in Chapter 32. At least part of it.


Good to know... It's really hard to keep track of this many installments, as you might imagine. :derpytongue2:

3501880 Oh I know... I mainly remember that one because I suggested it for the road trip.

Don't Stop Me Now? Well I'm sold, time to start reading.

3501880 You should make a playlist.

Since there's a Dan & Pinkie theme and Pinkie theme, what's Dan's solo theme?


I mention it up there. It's the White Stripes' Seven Nation Army.
