Are you familiar with the band the Tea Party? They have a few songs you might check out for Tannu. Especially off their Transmission album. This is one:
"Quiet now she said,
You're waking up the dead, so
I cradle the excuse
In love with the abuse
I handle it with ease
It's a dignified disease
Slow down . . ."
Ridiculously, I can't find the Tea Party's version on YouTube, just a cover where you can't even make out the lyrics because they're screaming them so hoarsely, so here's a download link: http://www.mediafire.com/?3ldqx1kndcu
You might also check out Emilie Autumn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C09nZaCWGk4
She's got a lot of good, dark songs.

(And if you want more Tea Party shit, or Emilie Autumn, just because they rock, lemme know and I will send you a PM or something with more linkses to awesome music.)
Ooh, never heard of either! (I kind of live in a shoebox... under a rock... inside of a cave.) I'll give them both a listen once I'm done arm-flailing around tonight. :D

Sweet. :) I'm kind of a music nut, can't stand to be without music going, even if it's just inside my head, so I'm always pleased to spread the stuff I love~
Very cool stuff, it's always neat to have new music tossed at me.
I'll hunt for some torrents once I figure out where to find some disc space, haha. But feel free to poke with links in the meantime if you like!
(Soundtrack stuff takes me a while to decide on, especially as I don't really process lyrics for the first hundred or more listens, even if I read them. But they seem like good candidates! :D)

I shall upload some more, then. :3
(Perfectly understandable! My suggestions are exactly that and if your conclusion is that they don't fit, I won't be bothered in the least. Soundtracks are usually very personal things; songs can be interpreted in multiple ways, depending on the viewpoint of the listener. XD)

I have to admit to loving this character. He's heart-breaking. I think my own favorite PC Warden would lock him in a closet and make him drink hot coco while she stood guard with a sword drawn.
These came up on the Ipod and made me think of this character. My mind wanders while I'm looking at lines of code. Also, I'm drunk. :-)
(On the last one, beware of Maynard in his underwear, weird little guy. Though this vid _did_ help me do a drawing of Zevran with abs that I'm rather proud of.)
Hahaha, aww. <3 Glad you like him. :)
I'll give these a listen once I've whittled my firefox tabs down to a dull roar. Thanks for the links! :D
These are interesting, though I'd heard a few before.
Am still mulling a couple of 'em over. :3

Replying to myself for later reference (I have a lot of updating to do, suggestions you guys have made have been ~awesome~!) because I have no short-term memory. XDhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QcoP8c7pNVc
I can't believe this wasn't already on it...

Are you familiar with Moist? The Canadian rock band from the '90s, sexy dark music, utterly gorgeous frontman.
"So close your eyes
Your Christ has come
The crippled boy that you once knew
The charmed enigma chosen one
With painted lips
Skin ripped and torn
Come touch and feel and lick and smell
This envy that I've worn so well."
If you like that one, you might poke about on YouTube and look at some of their other stuff. Push, Tangerine, Resurrection - and also David Usher's Black Black Heart (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFJorMzya2M&feature=related) - David Usher is the lead singer of Moist, that sexy-as-hell voice I can't get enough of, and a few of his solo works are just yum.
"Black black heart
Why would you offer more?
Why would you make it easier on me to satisfy?
I'm on fire
I'm rotting to the core
I'm eating all your kings and queens
All your sex and your diamonds."
...LJ never let me know about this comment and since I usually go directly to comment-threads from the notifications I never saw this one. Derp.
I've had black black heart stuck in my head all night now, damn you anon. ;)

Oh yeah, that song does that. It's insidious, sneaks into your head and lurks and then you catch yourself singing "Taste your mind and taste your sex~" in the middle of the grocery store.
(Or at least, I do, but I'm one of those people who lives life like a musical, ready to burst into song at the slightest provocation.)

oh please, try some inspiration from this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHID8hMgWKc
/die hard Tannu fan
My roommate once waltzed through a mall with a medical skeleton while singing that. (Are we surprised at the company I keep?)
Tannufilling approves (+50)
Hahah *trying to imagine people watching this m tango*
also so much love for nine inch nails perfect circle david bowie and duran duran and the cure. now everytime listening to this ill think about your hot porn >////<
this drawfag will try a little tannu zev fanart!
I need to add this
one to it as well someday, I keep forgetting. XD
And hooray art! :D
Note to my slacker self, Neon Trees - Animal
Looks like WMG already blocked it. That explains why there isn't anything of the real song up. D:
WMG = cocks.
Really? How bizarre. Especially considering there's plenty of other Tea Party songs on YouTube. :|a
Huh, it still loads up fine for me. Even weirder.
"This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it on copyright grounds.
Sorry about that."
Yeah. Well, the other songs may not be under WMG, or haven't been added to their "automatically block this" list yet.
It looks like it's up-loadable now, I found a few and added one. :)
Excellent! Glad people will be able to hear it.

Why hello there :)
Ever since I had a read of Silver and Scarlet, I can't help but think of Tannusen when I hear Jobriath's 'Take Me I'm Yours'. Thought I might share:
Song link is not available in my country! D:

two songs that always remind me of Ser Sex himself; Tannusen,
suede - animal nitrate
and jace everett - bad things
Interesting! I'll mull 'em over for a while. :D (I always have to do that for new songs.)
