Song lyrics that are just Brandon Sanderson refrences in disguise

11 posts in this topic

So I like Panic! at The Disco and was listening to victorious, and heard this lyric:

I'm a killing spree in white, eyes like broken Christmas lights
 
My touch is black and poisonous
And nothing like my punch-drunk kissI know you need it, do you feel it? Drink the water, drink the wine

Oh we gotta turn up the crazy
Livin' like a washed up celebrity
Shooting fireworks like it's the fourth of July
Until we feel alright
Until we feel alright
 
 this Seemed to be a pretty good fitting for a certain character in stormlight. Are there other lyrics that are reminiscent of any of Brando’s books?

I always thought that Divide from the RWBY soundtrack fit Ruin fairly well.

In the End by Linken Park makes me think of the Lord Ruler, and The One to Survive by Hidden Citizens is Kelsier's song, completely and absolutely.

I listened to it and holy crap you’re right. Also, what’s the profanity rules for 17th shard? And what counts as profanity?

We don’t really do any profanity, other than made up Sanderson profanities such as storms, scud, crem, something like that.

Is the word I mentioned too much? Should I edit it to be some Brando curse? Or is it fine? It fits the emotional levels I want shown, but it is not necessary for the post.

I believe it is ok. I’m pretty sure I’ve used it before. Just in case, let me mention the mod I am not scared of summoning. :P@AonEne

Today my Pandora station played "Easier to Run" by Linkin Park, and all I could think of was Shallan.

Crap? Crap is fine. Most curses that Brandon doesn't use will be censored automatically.

In Hozier's "Nohing This post has been reported for attempting to skirt the rules* With My Baby"  there's a verse that goes "If i was born as a blackthorn tree/ I'd wanna be felled by you / held by you/ fuel the pyres of your enemie". I always shudder a little when i hear it because of the meaning it gets through a stormlight lense.

 

Also, Warriors by imagine dragons is just about the return of the radiants, isn't it.
