Cosmere! The Musical

356 posts in this topic

I misread a certain topic title as "Musical Adaptation of Way of Kings", so guys. We're doing this.

What would the Cosmere books be like as a musical? Anyone got any ideas for songs?

Inb4 'Defying Gravity' as Windrunner!Kaladin's big solo number

Kaladin sings Defying Gravity pretty much verbatim.

Spoiler

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you won't bring me down

Nah, let's have Kaladin sing it after the scene at Honor Chasm. (I don't know, the thought of Kaladin singing Let it Go is really funny to me)

Also, "Let the storm rage on" is totally Kal

Khriss sings "Nazrilof" (a reworked version of "Shake it Off").  I just posted it to it's own topic, then saw this thread. 

I could also see Shai singing a great version of Mulan's "Who is that girl I see."

Edit: Wait, no. That song fits better with gold allomancy than with forging. So it should go to Vin or to Miles.

Oh there are plenty.
Hmm...

 

I feel like is potential with Hamilton and Kelsier. Something with Battle of Yorktown, but for Luthadel?
With Vin, Elend, Breeze and Kelsier replacing Lafayette, Mulligan, Laurens and Hamilton respectively? 

And Hamilton and Kaladin actually.

Hurricane for Kaladin maybe?

"Freefalling" for Kaladin. Whenever I here the song on the radio I think of him learning to Lash.

thanks to Twi for this.

But "Light behind your eyes" by MCR for Kaladin when he's in the slave carriage.

Am I the only one picturing the Lord Ruler getting a huge solo villain song, but the character being too lethargic to actually be bothered to sing it?

He gets the inquisitors making a choir for him, and they all sing wonderfully and he sings with a rather bored voice.

So what you're saying is that The Lord Ruler is Scar?

Pfft that mental image.
Except a bit more actually dangerous.
But yeah, a disney-style one would certainly be amusing.

Hey, let's be fair here: Scar successfully committed regicide, and ousted the lawful heir from the lands. If his minions weren't so downright lazy and actually killed Simba, he'd have won right there. :P

... And actually, with the reveals related to the Set in Band of Mourning, "I've got friends on the other side" might be suitable....

Not exactly Broadway-sounding, but I want to see Kelsier singing Sole Survivor by Underworld...

Some ones I did on an earlier thread:

WORK SONG: Skaa working in the fields. Possibly just before Kelsier comes in at the very start of FE.

CONFRONTATION: Kelsier confronts the Lord Ruler. Lyrics:

Spoiler

The Lord Ruler (in counterpoint)
Men like you can never change
Men like you can never change
No, Survivor-,

My duty's to the land
You have no rights
Come with me survivor
Now the wheel has turned around
Mistborn Kelseir is nothing now
Dare you talk to me of crime
And the price you had to pay
Every man is born in sin
Every man must choose his way
You know nothing of Rashek
I was born inside a jail
I was born with scum like you
I am from the gutter too! 

 

Kelsier (in counterpoint)
Believe of me what you will 
There is a duty that I'm sworn to do 
You know nothing of my life 
All I did was seek some Honour
You know nothing of the world 
You would rather see me dead 
But not before I see this justice done
I am warning you Rashek 
I'm a stronger man by far 
There is power in me yet 
My race is not yet run 
I am warning you Rashek 
There is nothing I won't dare 
If I have to kill you here 
I'll do what must be done!  

CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER(Legally Blonde): (by Marsh) Lyrics-

Spoiler

Marsh: There's a spike through my shoulder

Maybe some ruler told me

With the chance we've been given

we've got to be Ruined as hell

ONE JUMP AHEAD (Aladdin): Kelsier in the underworld

(Secret History spoiler)

   Hide contents

SUPERSTAR (Jesus Christ Superstar): Hoid unleashes his sassy side and sings to Kelsier when they meet at the well.

The Lord Ruler's "You're Welcome"

  Reveal hidden contents

Okay, okay, I see what's happening here
You're face-to-face with greatness and it's strange
You don't even know how you feel, it's pitiful
Well, it's nice to see that skaa never change
Raise your head, let's begin
Yes it's really me, It's Rashek, breathe it in
I know it's a lot: the hair, the bod
When you're staring at a Sliver of God.

What can I say except "you're welcome"?
For the Ashmounts, the koloss, the sky
Hey, it's okay, it's okay, you're welcome
All my enemies are doomed to die!

[Verse 2]
Hey, who pushed Scadrial across the sky,
When you were waddling ye high? This guy
When Ruin escaped the Well, who had built bunkers down below?
You're looking at him, yo!
Oh, also I blotted out the sky, you're welcome
To darken your days and so you don't die
Also, I discovered Hemalurgy, you're welcome
To spike your friends and make them cookies

[Chorus]
So, what can I say except "you're welcome"?
For giving Scadrial some new geography
It's required to pray, you're welcome
It's hard to hide my superiority
You're welcome, you're welcome

[Verse 3]
Well, come to think of it
Child, honestly, I can go on and on
I can explain every natural phenomenon
The plants, the microbes in the ground
Oh, that was Rashek just messing around
I killed Alendi, I took his place
Used the Well, saved the human race
What's the lesson? What is the moral here?
Don't mess with Rashek or you'll disappear
And the bracers here on my arms
Contain the powers that keep me from harm
Look at this world, I made everything happen
Look at my Inquisitors just gleefully hacking
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, hey

[Chorus]
Well anyway, let me say you're welcome
For the wonderful world you know
Hey, it's okay, it's okay you're welcome
Well, come to think of it, you gotta go
Hey, you didn't think to say "you're welcome"
So Inquisitors are going to hunt you down
your execution's today, you're welcome
'Cause Rashek doesn't like to see you frown
You're welcome, you're welcome

 

Glorious, absolutely glorious. Thank you for this. :o:D *tear leaks from one eye as my mouth hangs open in wonder*

"You're welcome"

Can anyone think of one using "Be Prepared"? I'm trying to come up with one, but none of the characters seem to both fit Scar and the act of overthrowing someone.

What about Denth plotting to take over Hallandren?  It's not exact, but that's the best I can come up with.
