So I have been listening to a lot of music lately, and I feel like a lot of songs would make for really great shows.

I would have to pick A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash

I feel like anime needs more characters who say "I will beat the shit out of you for laughing at my name". Lord knows that more characters are like Shinji Ikari than are like Lelouch Britannia.

So, what song would you pick? There are no wrong answers unless they end with "By One Direction".

Birds of Prey by Christina Aguilera

Based on this song, the anime will be sci-fi themed.

The anime industry is definitely lacking in the sci-fi department. I need more shows like No.6 and Ergo Proxy and Aeon Flux.

Something that is purely sci-fi, and doesn't combine with drama/shoujo or other elements. An anime that deals with worldly issues and core problems of society.

There's already an anime based of the song Black Rock Shooter, so I'm fine.

Matryoshka by Miku and Gumi

It could have a very different plot, dark and a bit crazy.

I've seen anime with a odd and dark plot that I thought would be very different, but in the end they weren't. They were just normal anime flaunting a different quality.

Make it nasty

Uhp too late, 80% of ecchi manga beat me to the punch.

World on Fire by Les Friction. As well as Louder than Words and Here Comes the Reign.

My personal take is some kind of epic dark fantasy, but it's open to interpretation.

Daft Punk's new album would be just awesome to hear in general but if I had to pick one song off of that album it would be "Touch"

Panda Hero

That sounds like it would be cool as an anime. Maybe.

Or maybe Alluring Secret ~Black Vow~

It would be a good action romance drama thing.

Welcome to the Black Parade

It could follow either 'The Patient' or the Black Parade it's self. I think it would make a nice gothic horror anime.

(normally I would say Nanana/Sing by My Chemical Romance, but we already have a comic book so I think that's enough for now)

Nightwish - Eva

This song would make a very touching anime. It will only end in misery.

A lot of Nightwish songs seem like they could tell a good story. Wishmaster, The Islander, Dark Chest of Wonders, Nemo, Creek Mary's Blood. I think most of the songs Tuomas writes are trying to tell a story.
