I have this thing where I turn certain songs into vids/songfics in my head whenever I hear them. Mostly I don't ever do anything with it, because vids require more commitment and processing power than I have available at the moment, but also because songfics end up silly and not every song that makes you think of a series necessarily would make a good vid. And, of course, you can't really make a vid for a book.

This is a problem because over time, half the mp3s in my giant, perpetually random-cycling playlist have acquired some sort of trigger-status for a particular fanfic I'd like to write, or whatever. So often, like just now, I'm trying to read something or write something or whatever, and a song will come on that makes me completely loose my train of thought. It's very distracting. So, while I'm distracted, I thought I'd list a few of the songs that make me completely loose track of what I'm doing and start writing/vidding in my head. I'd be interested in seeing what songs make other people think of certain fandoms or story/vid premises (I know I can't be alone in this, because there are vidders on my flist, heh). 

Harry Potter:
-The Old '97s' Nervous Guy - sneaking-around-and-doomed-for-heartbreak RL/HP set in Grimmauld Place during/after OotP.
-REM's Nightswimming - Introspective Lupin character study just prior to PoA
-Ani Difranco's Untouchable Face - Unrequited SB/JP just prior to the Potter's wedding

X/Tokyo Babylon (these are less specific fic ideas, more vid inspiration):
-Marilyn Manson's version of Tainted Love
-Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb
-Dave Matthews Band's What You Are (I actually started this vid, some time ago) 

Please Save My Earth:
Whitetown's I Could Never Be Your Woman (which is sung by a guy and would make the best Issei vid ever)

Fruits Basket
Ani Difranco's 32 Flavors (my Tohru theme song)

Gundam Wing
Ben Folds Five's Missing the War (which I actually wrote)
Dave Matthews Band's The Space Between (which I totally have a full vid for in my head)

Yami no Matsuei
The Avalanche's Frontier Psychiatrist

Cake's Sad Songs and Waltzes (for which I had a mostly complete rough of a video that I now can't find, but which I will someday buy the dvds for and do over)

Just a sample. There's also lots of songs that people have already made videos from. Then of course there's all the music that's actually from various anime/movies/tv shows, some of which is very distracting all by itself (after watching Kingdom Hospital, I cannot hear Basement Jaxx's Where's Your Head At without laughing so hard I usually spill something on myself).
