Tannusen's Soundtrack [Jun. 26th, 2026|08:20 pm]
Tannusen Surana

Youtube links are up for extra convenience, but the videos may have nothing to do with Tannu. Linked lyrics may also be incorrect; I can't easily link to my fixed versions while pretending to be anon! *shifty eyes*

Tannusen is actually a very old character of mine and has picked up quite the list over the years. Since I know a few folks were interested, I'll list it here:


A Perfect Circle: Pet
Lay your head down child, I won't let the boogeyman come.
Counting bodies like sheep, to the rhythm of the war drums.

lyrics | youtube

Cain's Offering - Elegantly Broken
Silence is broken.
Empty words are licking the layers of sin,
From our skin.
We realize happy endings are not for everyone.
They're not for us.


Carlos Santana Feat. Everlast: Put Your Lights On
'Cause there's a monster, livin' under my bed
Whisperin' in my ear
And there's an angel, with a hand on my head
She say I got nothin' to fear
Shey say: laa ilaha, il allah, you gonna shine like a star.

lyrics | youtube

Coheed & Cambria: The Camper Velourium I: Faint Of Hearts
I'll touch it if you ask me to, but how is up to you.
No I'm not going to let you get up, if you struggle willingly.
I'll favor all your form to show you how it's been done to me.

lyrics | youtube

Darren Hayes: Darkness
Turning pages over
Run away to nowhere
And it's hard to take control
When your enemy's old and afraid of you
You'll discover that the monster you were running from
Is the monster in you

lyrics | youtube

David Bowie: Cat People (Putting Out Fire)
Well you wouldn't believe what I've been through.
You've been so long,
Well it's been so long...
And I've been putting out fire with gasoline!

lyrics | youtube (live version)

David Bowie: Jump They Say
My friend, don't listen to the crowd--
They say 'Jump'!
Got to believe somebody--
They say 'Jump'!

lyrics | youtube

David Bowie: Miracle Goodnight
Don't want to know the past, I want to know the real deal.
I really don't want to know that,
The less we know, the better we feel.

lyrics | youtube

David Usher: Black Black Heart
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.

lyrics | youtube

Duran Duran: Bedroom Toys
Checking out the five star atmosphere
You want some expertise
If you got treasure, I'll pay you for the pleasure
It'll bring you to your knees

lyrics | youtube

Duran Duran: Can You Deal With It?
Live in sympathy,
Use psychology,
To find the twist in me (ah-ha),
Can you deal with it?

lyrics | youtube

Duran Duran: Come Undone
Can't ever keep from falling apart--
At the seams!
Can't believe you're taking my heart--
To pieces!

lyrics | youtube

Duran Duran: Still Breathing
Heart, though it's hot and violent,
My head is cool and quiet,
As the ashes that fall from the sky.

lyrics | youtube

Infernal: Self Control
I, I live among the creatures of the night!
I haven't got the will to try and fight
against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it,
That tomorrow never knows!

lyrics | youtube
Special note: I know it's a remake, and I like the original too. But this version works better for Tannusen's soundtrack, even the video!

Jewel: Amen
A dry tongue screams at the sky,
But the wind just breathes words in--
As a strange bird tries to fly.

lyrics | youtube (live)

Marilyn Manson: (S)aint
You wanted perfect, you got your perfect,
Now I'm too perfect for someone like you.
I was a dandy in your ghetto with a snow white smile,
But you'll never be as perfect whatever you do.

lyrics | youtube

Marilyn Manson: Slutgarden
And so I memorize the words to the porno movies,
It's the only thing I want to believe.
I memorize the words to the porno movies,
This is a new religion to me.

lyrics | youtube

Nadia Ali: Fantasy
So stay away from me
You’re better off to stay as far from lovin' me
Just stay a fantasy
In the dark, in the night and in my dreams


Neon Trees: Animal
I do it every time...
You're killin' me now!
And I won't be denied by you!
The animal inside of you!

lyrics | youtube

Nine Inch Nails: The Perfect Drug
I come along but I don't know where you're taking me,
I shouldn't go but you're reaching back and shaking me,
Turn off the sun, pull the stars from the sky.
The more I give to you, the more I die.

lyrics | youtube

Sarah McLachlan: Building A Mystery
You wear sandals in the snow,
And a smile that won't wash away.
Can you look out the window,
Without your shadow getting in the way?

lyrics | youtube

Savage Garden: Carry On Dancing
You're never safe 'till you see the dawn,
And if the clock strikes past midnight--
The hope is gone.

lyrics | youtube

Skillet: Monster
The secret side of me, I never let you see
I keep it caged but I can't control it
So stay away from me, the beast is ugly
I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

lyrics | youtube

Stabilo: Flawed Design
And ever since I figured out
That I could control other people,
I've had trouble sleeping
With both eyes closed.

lyrics | youtube

The Cure: Lovecats
We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully pretty!
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you...
We should have each other to tea, huh?
We should have each other with cream...

lyrics | youtube

The Tea Party: Gyroscope
Quiet now she said, you're waking up the dead,
I cradle the exuse, in love with the abuse so...
I handle it with ease, it's a dignified disease!
Slow... down...

lyrics | youtube

Waking Ashland: Sing Me To Sleep
There is something, watching, waiting...
There is something,
Passing, casting these shadows
How they make their way into my mind...

lyrics | youtube
Special note: Has always sounded to me like Tannusen singing. Unfortunately the band usually uses too many stupid filters on his voice for this to be true about their stuff in general.

Always looking for suggestions! :)

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.

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.)

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. XD

Are you familiar with Moist? The Canadian rock band from the '90s, sexy dark music, utterly gorgeous frontman.

For example:
Silver (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S8xBETsR5ck)
"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. ;)

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)

Looks like WMG already blocked it. That explains why there isn't anything of the real song up. D:

WMG = cocks.

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:
