Post songs that remind you of, or are suitable for Tali and/or her romance. I'll start.

I think this particular song and it's lyrics are very fitting for Tali's romance, from Tali's post of view:



Lyrics:

I've been swallowed by your kindness
Every part of me is breaking down
You have let me feel so helpless
As if I couldn't drown

It was in love
You understood the need in me
So much tenderness
You wrapped me in humanity

You touched my soul, my very being
You made me whole, now life has new meaning
Got a second chance, you can see the change in me
And as we dance, you wrap me in humanity

Others walked on by in their blindness
But you refused to let me be
My disguise, you saw behind this
You pushed on in and set me free

And it was in protection
You held on with such certainty
Embraced by your affection
You wrapped me in humanity

I'm a big broadway fan and I think the song "As long as you're mine" from Wicked fits very well because the woman didn't think the guy saw anything in her, etc etc.  Just listen, its good.

  • "Everybody wants to live in a lie" The Truth hurts
I'm a Techno guy so I'm gonna be referencing Tali's romance to techno, the song i'm linking is "Beloved" by "VNV Nation" I think it fits it perfectly.



For those who wont listen to the Techno, at least look up the lyrics, this song was written originally as a Poem, ill post a small amount of it.

My beloved do you know
When the warm wind comes again
Another year will start to pass
And please don't ask me why I'm here
Something deeper brought me
Than a need to remember

This song is called "The Great Divide" by "VNV Nation" It isnt a love song, but I think of the way Tali feels during the relationship every time I listen to it.

In all honesty, I think "Never gonna give you up" fits pretty well.

"We've known each other, for so long." (Two entire games)
"Your hearts been aching but, you're to shy to say it." (Takes a fever for her to accidentally blab it out.)

"Never gonna give you up" (You'd better not!)
Tali might no longer be my girl, but she will always be my Shepard's girl.

Having watched a great tribute video, the Shepard/Tali romance story is all I think of when I hear this:



Enjoy

This, 100% absolutely, awesomely applies to Tali romance.

I think Run is actually better for her.


But to offer something different:

I like #2, but I still think chasing cars is absolutely perfect.  Just imagine, if you will, Shepard and Tali dancing quietly in his quarters, music playing softly in the background, shep staring into her eyes as it hits that verse.

Dunno why, but i always associated sitar with nomadic people (quarians in this case), mixed with just the right amount of electronica (Tali kinda liked the music in the Flux).

I'm not sure if this counts, but it is quite nice and could apply.

It starts slow and unsure, almost afraid to continue but still curious - hoping that somthing might be there.  Then it picks up but is still sad.  Tali has lost Shepard and never said how she felt (directly).  The song the quiets...Shepard is back...can he be trusted?  Where has he been?  The music builds slowly again and crestiendos then tension then a gush of passion (4:33) as the strings come in full force!  Tali and Shepard  become honest with each other and the music slowly calms as they are at peace but this whole time the music has a sad touch to it because of the over-arching feeling that the galaxy is on the edge of destruction.


Alright...I was typing that as I listened to the song so it might be a bit random.  Listen to the song, its great.  It is also a favorite because it inspired my fanfic.  Regardless, this song rocks.

Another good one from the Troy score that wasn't used in the movie (I guess that wouldn't make it a Troy score) but it is still applicable to the romance.

Why chose songs from Troy?  Troy is a story of one of the greatest warriors of all time, finding peace in a woman in a lifetime of war and destruction.  (Troy movie not the story "The Illiad")  I think it crosses well with Commander Shepard and Tali.

This song pretty much epitomizes the tension between Shep and Tali.  The song is all about uncertainty within a relationship; whether or not you're truly ready to culminate your love.

  • So stupid he might just be brilliant?
This topic reminds me of a very well made Tali music video.

I've actually been wanting to download this song for some time, but the version they sell on the Itunes store is different from this (the version with only vocals and piano in the video is like some kind of special remix that appears to exist nowhere else on the internet....and this one in the video has dialogue over the end). But I digress, I always liked this video and the song fits well.

This is a good one.  Too bad the song is a ghost.

Forgive me, but when you say that a song is a ghost, what exactly does that mean?

I too would like to know how a song can be a ghost (figuratively speaking).

I think he means that it's so hard to find it might as well be a ghost.
Tali might no longer be my girl, but she will always be my Shepard's girl.
