Analysis of Eiríkr’s Playlist

I know I said I was going to do Cwen’s next in that comment, but Cwen’s list is like Anya’s…it never ends.

Erirkr is so much easier. And I think I’ve done this somewhere, or at least listed most of the songs out. But heck, might as well.

Rain by Yoko Kanno

This song is from Cowboy Bebop. It’s a tragic anthem for a man whose lost his love and is walking through a nightmare he can’t wake up from. He moves through life half in the past, hardly in the present. For a long time after Ninim died, this was Eirikr.

The Price of Freedom by Tekaharu Ishimoto from Final Fantasy VII: Crisis Core

Eirikr paid a huge price for freedom from his father’s tyranny. While he is grateful that his brother and sister are safe, his heart remains sorrowful. He wishes it had been him that died beneath the eaves of Mirkwood, but knows that without him, his brother and sister would be left alone.

Zero Kiryuu Theme from Vampire Knight

A sad, lonely instrumental about a man (vampire) that hates himself for being what he is. Who lost everything. And who can never have that which he loves.

The Mountains Win Again by Blues Traveler

Eirikr has a wandering heart and a sad soul. He feels keenly the pain of the world. But he tries not to let the surface crack; stoic and solid.

Men are not to cry so how am I to stop it
Keep it all inside don’t show how much she rocked ya…

Anything for You by Ludo

His song for Ninim.

Never, Never Gonna Give You Up by Cake

Another song for Ninim that reflects the lighter, more playful side of him. The Barry White version is just too pr0nstarish.

Drunken Lament by Ludo

Another “my wife is dead and there isn’t enough sorrow to drown my alcohol in” type of song.

Hey Leonardo (She Likes Me for Me) by Blessid Union of Souls

This is how Eirikr feels around Eruviel.
