Here at Browncoat Radio we have tackled almost all the personalities and what we think they might listen to. Jayne's Jams was easy...as was Wash day.
Devotionals with Shepard that we play sunday morning
Simon Tam's adventures in good taste (classical music) Even an occational random River Tam attack (crazy music)

Now...except for soundtracks from western movies and WWII patriotic war tunes...
I am at a loss as to what would Malcolm Reynolds
listen to?

I have put off doing a show devoted to him, because I just can't think of anything. What exactly did he do for fun? I have nothing to grasp on to. Help!

Ok, this is totally unhelpful in all possible ways, but if instead of music he would listen to you wanted music that was fitting for him you need only look at the Firefly theme song and the music when Serenity first comes on screen in the movie, music sounding like that, and maybe some of the Silverado score.

-

Also, I thought I'd mention this though it's too late I guess, River would like Bach, trust me on this. Brandenburg 5 is something that would appeal to her.

Yeah, I gotta agree with ctc on this one - scores from westerns, like Silverado comes to mind. Maybe someone else can see something else, less obvious.

Mruniverse, I too am at a loss as to what to suggest.

Perhaps some of the rousing scores from Westerns over the years. "Tombstone", "Once Upon a Time in the West", "Silverado", any John Wayne movie? Spaghetti westerns?

Unfortunately we get to see Mal having very little fun.

I have noticed that he is surrounded with Chinese stuff in his cabin... maybe oriental music?

He was raised on a ranch, maybe old cowboy standards... but that might not suit the folks who are listenin'.

My two cents... as folk say around here.

Maybe some old time Western Swing, like Bob Will and the Texas Playboys, or maybe some Johnny Cash. ("Ring of Fire" perfectly describes what happened with Mal when he met Inara.) Oh, and Hoyt Axton! Especially his rendition of a Civil War song called, "I'm A Good Ol' Rebel". And "Yellow Rose of Texas". And "Don't Fence Me In"!!!! (Yup, I loves me Hoyt!)


Tell me this ain't Mal to a tee:

Oh, I'm a good ol' Rebel, Now thats just what I am.
And for this Yankee Nation, I do not give a damn.
I'm glad I fought again' 'er, I only wish we'd won.
I aint asked any pardon for anything I've done.
I hates the Yankee Nation and everything they do.
I hates the the declaration of independence too.
I hates the glorious Union, tis drippin' with our blood.
I hates the stripped banner, I'v had it all I could.
I rode with Robert E. Lee for three years thereabout.
Got wounded in four places and I starved at point lookout.
I caughts the Ruematism a'campin in the snow.
But I killed a chance of Yankees and I'd like to kill some mo'.
Three hundred thousand Yankees is stiff in southern dust.
We got three hundred thousand before they conqured us.
They die of southern fever and southern steel and shot.
I wish they were three million, instead of what we got.
I cant take up my musket, and fire it now no more.
But I aint gonna love 'em, now that is certain sure.
And I dont want no pardon, for what I was and am.
I wont be reconstructed and I do not give a damn.
Oh, I'm a good ol' Rebel, Now thats just what I am.
And for this Yankee Nation, I do not give a damn.
I'm glad I fought again' 'er, I only wish we'd won.
I aint asked any pardon for anything I've done.

GASP! You used the "O" word!

The cowboy thing I have wrapped up...but there has to be more...and yes I have scanned and scanned the scenes of his bunk....a space toilet even!
This is just weird...the MAINEST of the main characters and we know practically NOTHING! I imaging if we would have had more seasons Mal would have evolved and story lines would reveal more....we can only wonder

You know. He's in a sense poetic at times (although rather crude any other time), but he never struck me as musical. Dunno, Country just... it doesnt fit I dont think.

Mal's surrounded by violence and a tormented inward soul. It seems he would want to escape that. At the risk of sounding rediculous, I think he'd be an ambiance guy, slow soothing music with perhaps one or two instruments so he could find a way to sleep at night.

Nandi. That looked pretty fun.

I read Melinda Greene(who played Nandi)was a singer. Maybe she has a CD out.

Here is the perfect Mal theme song:

p3

(do a 'save link as')
If you're looking for instrumental music, as I mentioned on another thread, you should check out "Strength in Numbers - The Telluride Sessions". It's an amazing collaboration of several virtuoso country musicians that is very similar to what Greg Edmonson did for the series.

Granted, I don't know too much music, cowboy or oriental...

...but I always was partial to music played on a saw. Yes, a saw that you cut things with. I makes a really really pretty sound. That is the only thing that I can think of.

I don't have any links or anything, just a point in one of the many possible directions.

I wanna meet some AZ Firefly fans!

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Any of ya'll familiar with Steve Earle? His music is something I think Mal (or at least Nathan) would enjoy. He's a cross between country, folk, blues, and rockabilly.

I was listening to several of his cds today. Guitar Town, Copperhead Road, Train a'Comin', and El Corazón. I have another one, I Feel Alright, but it was in my work truck. I got a very eery feeling listening to one of the tracks on Train a'Comin' called "Northern Winds." It is acoustic guitar only, and it is remarkably similar in tone and melody to David Newman's arrangement of "The Ballad of Serenity."

Other performers that would fit into the 'verse nicely include The Band, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco and Pure Prairie League. Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man" could be a song Mal's mother wrote for him, and someone should try to do a filk rewording of The Band's "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down."
