I'll say Golden Brown by The Stranglers:

I guess it'd be a story about heroin, a girl and toast, if Cornwell's description of the song is anything to go by Am I the only person who thinks harpsichords are epic?

Everyone do yourself a favor and watch this...

It's used as the OP to Btooom but the music video itself is on characters completely unrelated to that show. As you can see the building blocks are pretty much all there for what would/could potentially be a pretty emotional (maybe even with a bit of super natural or sci-fi twist) anime. It's hard to really derive much of a story from the music video but I'm sure there was some cognitive direction when they made it...I like the way the characters look.

Viva la Vida by Coldplay

Or Hotel California by The Eagles

Both would be interesting.

Something with Tenacious D would be pretty awesome.

30 seconds to mars - battle of one

I've actually had the idea for the story for years. I'm just too damn lazy to put it to paper.

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.


Panda Hero would be really good! I voted Matryoshka, actually XD. Also, I think "Once Upon a Me" by Miku could be a really cute, good slice of life anime :).

You could make a case for somehow adapting a song into an OVA but not a whole series.

I guess I'd pick something old like Hey Jude, Sunday Bloody Sunday or something.

Freaking yes, I finally thought of one.

Mars, the Bringer of War - Gustav Holst

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NeQ1h6lzLI

It starts at around 45 seconds. Not the best quality, but I always like it better when it's played slowly, plus you get all the different camera angles. It's nice.

Anyway, this needs to be a show, right now. Could you even begin to imagine the epicness?

Whisper by Evanescence.

I have a fight scene for my own story all from this song. The brother watches as his sister dies in his arms. The killer gloats, so the brother gives into his powers dark side. Getting whooped, the brother gives up his soul, thus becoming a phoenix demon.
Even using an attack that blasts part of the killer away, he still defeats the brother.
The demon part tells the brother to give up, only for the brother to have gone mad. The brother keeps screaming more power. Thus he is not devoured by the demon, it is the demon whom is devoured instead.
Ultimately the fight is stalemate when the killer and his co-worker are summoned to return.
