Or, more specifically, do you have any songs that you immediately associate with Mal? If so, what are they?

"Don't Fence Me In" even though it's folky, it still reminds me a lot of the BDH. Also, Godsmack's "Serenity" has a certain Mal feel to it.

You might wanna browse over here: http://www.fireflyfans.net/thread.asp?b=2&t=21091

There are quite a few there. And by quite a few, I mean a lot.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


"I'm Your Captain" by Grand Funk Railroad.

Great song & it reminds me so much of the episode "Out of Gas".

Someone on the boards here once posted a video he put together with scenes from Firefly/Serenity to the song "If Everyone Cared" By Nickelback. It was really well done and the words fit perfectly.

I know its slightly obvious and it would be a bit rubbish if it didn't, but Escape Key did a really good job with "Mal's Song", they took the theme tune and added verses, and it really captures his essence.

Stick to your guns - Bon Jovi

ALBUM: NEW JERSEY
ARTIST : BON JOVI
MUSIC & LYRICS : JON BON JOVI, RICHIE SAMBORA, H. KNIGHT

So you want to be a cowboy
Well you know it's more that just a ride
Guess you got to know the real thing
If you're gonna know the other side
Ain't nobody riding shotgun
In this world tonight

And when you spit, you better mean it
You got to make 'em all believe it
If you're gonna be the one

Stick to your guns
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love you and some
Will curse you, baby
And you can go to war
But only if you have to
It's only if you have to

So you want to be the big time
Some people have to drag you down
There's no living in the backseat
If you're going to drive through town
And when you pray for independence
Boy, you better stand your ground
You got to give it all you got now
Or you might get shot down
Fight hard until the battle is won

Stick to your guns
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love you and some
Will curse you, baby
And youcan go to war
But only if you have to
But only if you have to

Solo

Well, you know that
I been through it
I got the scars to prove it
Fight hard and
The battle is yours

Stick to your guns
Ain't nobody gonna hurt you, baby
You can go for the trigger
But only if you have to
Aim from the heart
Some will love you and some
Will curse you, baby
And you can go to war
But only if you have to
It's only if you have to

But stick to your guns...

Always wanted to see a fan vid done of this one.

JADEHAND


A song about a man and his boat. It's Very Mal/Serenity the last bit even feels a little Mal/Inara.

Marillion From the album "Marbles"
"Ocean Cloud"

Dedicated to Don Allum, and the Ocean Rowers

He's seen too much of life
And there's no going back
The loneliness calls him
And the edge which must be sharpened
He's losing it. And he knows.
But there's a fighter in his mind and his body's tough
The years have been unkind but kind enough.

The smell of the earth
It's his favourite smell
But he's somehow compelled to the stinging salt hell
To the place where he hurts and he's scared
And there's no one to tell
And no one who doesn't listen

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
And I'll trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet Ocean Cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
for now."

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
I wouldn't trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet ocean cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
for now."

"Only me and the sea
We will do as we please."

He remembers the day he was marched to the front
By the physical knuckle head teacher of games
"Look lads" he declared, "This boy's a cream puff
No guts and no muscles
No spine and no stuffing"
The whole schoolroom sniggered
And silently thanked God it wasn't them..

But time is revenge. All the bullies grow weak
And must live with faithless women who despise them
I'll be in Barbados in a couple of weeks
With a rum on the table and yarns by the yard
A story to tell and a story to save
..unless she changes her mind
I'll trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen to much of life so the sea is my wife
And the sweet ocean clouds will look down on my boat tonight

The wind changed
I felt it run beneath my ear
Like silk drawn across my neck
A dream of your legs
Defying gravity in love

The medium wave
Brought signals here from far away
Your tender voice riding on the sea spray
Something in the air
For those who know the signs
Something in the air
A storm..

When I was alive
When I was alive
Don't wanna remember
When I was alive

Watch me watch me
Paint this picture
Stretchin Hurtin Cursin
Watch me
Takin it Takin it Takin it Takin it....
Watch me. Watch me. God above..

Between two planets
In between the points of light
Between two distant shorelines
Here am I

Between two planets
In the black daylight of space
Between two heavenly bodies
The invisible man.
Ripping out the radio
I want to be alone

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
I wouldn't trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet Ocean Cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife
And the sweet ocean clouds will look down on my bones tonight..


"I have been here many times before In a life I used to live
But I have never seen these streets so fresh Washed with morning rain
I have seen this face a thousand times Every morning of my life
But I never saw these eyes so clear Free of doubt and pain
Like the whole world has been made again."
Made Again (Brave)-Marillion

When I read this thread, one song popped up in my mind-- "Wanted Dead Or Alive" by J. Bon Jovi, R. Sambora.

--It's all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems we're wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
I'd drive all night
Just to get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes it's not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when you're alone and all you do is think

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still I'm standing tall
I've seen a million faces
And I've rocked them all

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
I'm wanted dead or alive
I'm a cowboy, I got the night on my side
I'm wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive--

I reckon Niska must want him heap-o-plenty.


--------------
Wash: Closing in.
Zoe: Planet's coming up a might fast.
Wash: That's just 'cause I'm goin' down too quick. Likely crash and kill us all.
Mal: Well, if that happens, let me know.

Stranger by Billy Joel reminds me of Mal. Mostly because he sort of shields his feelings from the rest of the crew. Along the same lines, She's Got a Way reminds me of Inara, and Billy the Kid reminds me of Jayne, both also by Billy Joel. (I'm a fan if that was unclear)


Stranger

Well we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out and
Show ourselves
When everyone has gone
Some are satin some are steel
Some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of the stranger
But we love to try them on

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger
Did you ever let your lover see
The stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it, why can't
Someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

Once I used to believe
I was such a great romancer
Then I came home to a woman
That I could not recognize
When I pressed her for a reason
She refused to even answer
It was then I felt the stranger
Kick me right between the eyes

Well we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger
Did you ever let your lover see
The stranger in yourself?

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south
Every now and then
You've done it why can't
Someone else?
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

You may never understand
How the stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil
And he is not always wrong
Though you drown in good intentions
You will never quench the fire
You'll give in to your desire
When the stranger comes along.

MISSTRESSAHARA


I said it before I'll say it again, Six Feet From the Edge by Creed.

It's about Mal and his faith, his loss of it, and the hell of a life he has to lead out on the edge of space.

Please come now
I think I'm falling
Holding on to all I think is safe
It seems I've found the road to nowhere
And I'm trying to escape
I yelled back when i heard thunder
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say...

CHORUS
Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge
And I'm thinking
Maybe six feet ain't so far down

I'm looking down
Now that it's over
Reflecting on all of my mistakes
I thought I found the road to somewhere
Somewhere in His grace
I cried out
Heaven save me
But I'm down to one last breath
And with it let me say
Let me say...

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge
And I'm thinkin
Maybe six feet ain't so far down

(repeat chorus)

I'm so far down

Sad eyes follow me
But I still belive there's something left for me
So please come stay with me
Cause I still believe there's something left for you and me
For you and me
For you and me

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge
And I'm thinking

Hold me now
I'm six feet from the edge
And I'm thinking
Maybe six feet ain't so far down....

(repeat chorus)

Please come now
I think I'm falling
Holding on to all I think is safe...


And the last bit clearly covers Mal and Inarah and how much he needs her to keep himself from that edge.


If I'm a bitch, then life just got interesting

Music inspired by Firefly and Serenity

This is definitely Mal's song.

On the Drift

Quote:

On the Drift (Hazlerig): an original song based on the episode "Out of Gas."



I also think of this as a Mal song.

SAIL THE SKY

Quote:

Sail the Sky (Klassen): an anthem expressing what the characters may have felt at the end of the movie; sent to us by a fellow Browncoat.


This is Wash's song

Shadow Captain, CSN

Oh, captain what are we hiding from?
You've been hiding from the start
Did some lover steal your heart
Or did the full moon make you mad?

Oh, captain why these speechless seas
That never come to land?
Oh, I need to understand
Could a little light be that bad?

I can see your hands are roughened
By the wheel and the rope
I'd like to look to you for hope
I think it's hiding there

Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive"

Its all the same, only the names will change
Everyday it seems were wasting away
Another place where the faces are so cold
Id drive all night just to get back home

Chorus:
Im a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Im wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Sometimes I sleep, sometimes its not for days
And the people I meet always go their separate ways
Sometimes you tell the day
By the bottle that you drink
And times when youre all alone all you do is think

Chorus

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back
I play for keeps, cause I might not make it back
I been everywhere, still Im standing tall
Ive seen a million faces an Ive rocked them all

Im a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride
Im wanted dead or alive
Im a cowboy, I got the night on my side
Im wanted dead or alive
Wanted dead or alive

Quote:

The Valley by Jeff Black

http://mysite.verizon.net/damonblack64/resources/JeffBlack-TheValley.m
p3


"As I walk down through the Valley,
And I breath in the angel mist,
Nothing to protect me
From this place that the Devil blessed.
I walk with arms wide open
And dream where the wild winds blow
That Faith will give me shelter
And Time my own reward.

Chorus:
You see my soul is alive
And these dreams are real
And I will not let fear
Rule my life or how I feel
Inside my heart
For the rest of my days
On the wings of a dove
Carry me away

To the left I feel the joker
Tug and pull there at my coat
To the right I feel the thieves
Choke and dagger at my throat
Stumbling through the darkness
Like a drifter in the night
Shaking off the violence
To the fall of the morning light

Repeat Chorus

You see, they put it in the paper
Around the world and on the air
And they run it down the wire
Baby till we're tired and we just don't care
I know we can make
We can make it if we try
We can rise above this mess
And fly in a clear blue sky

Bridge:

I know when the light falls on me
There ain't nothing I can't overthrow
There ain't nothing I can't overcome
Or come to know.
So lay your heavy load down on me.
Strip everything I have away.
I am not your prisoner.
I am not afraid.

Repeat Chorus

Carry me away...
Carry me away...
Carry me away...

I've posted about this before, but for me it's "Buliding A Mystery", by Sarah McLachlan. Particularly this line:

You're a beautiful
A beautiful f***ed up man

The whole song kind of fits Inara's perspective on Mal, I think.

Another good one is "I Fought The Law". Though I prefer The Clash's version to the Bobby Fuller Four.
