It's been kinda quiet lately. I assume you guys are just busy - I know I am. I've got about three KH AMVs in the work, but I have yet to finish any of them, and it doesn't seem like they'll be done any time soon. XD; But just 'cause we have nothing to post doesn't mean there's nothing for the community to do. Anyone got any recs? Watched any good AMVs on youtube lately? Seen any animations on Deviantart? Let us know!
Until then, how about we get the creative juices flowing with a little discussion? Here on the east coast, it suddenly feels like summer again! It's sunny all day, everything is growing green, pollen is everywhere... Makes me want to go out and buy blue popsicles. <3 And listen to songs that remind me of summer.
So what songs remind you of summer?
KH is a very summer-geared series. Destiny Islands and Twilight Town are very summery places, not to mention the hotter Disney worlds (Agrabah, Atlantica, and the Colliseum all come to mind). So chances are that summer-themed songs will go great with the series, too. Maybe your favorite summer song will inspire someone else's future AMV... or your own. ^_^ It's worth a shot, right?
Might as well start with myself. XD Here are three songs that feel like summer to me:
(Oh, and as a necessary preface, these are all songs just off the top of my head. They may already have been made into AMVs.. possibly quite often. So check AMV.org and Youtube before you run off to vid them. That should be standard procedure with any AMV-artist. You always want to avoid making an AMV to an over-used song, no matter how perfect it is. ^^;)
1. Sugar Ray. ...Yes, anything by Sugar Ray. XD They just have a very laid-back, islandy feel to their music. "when it's Over" has great AMV-potential, too, but my favorite, I think, is "Someday."
( Lyrics to SomedayCollapse )
2. Yellowcard's hit "Ocean Avenue" came out during the summer... not to mention the lyrics. XD So, of course, it's one of the the first songs I think of when I go to the beach every summer. And while the KH kids aren't quite old enough for the song (16 and 18), I think the sentiment of the song is MORE than enough to carry KH-clips through the whole thing.

3. Smash Mouth. I love their music, and it's very upbeat and raw, which feels like summer to me. I especially love "Walking on the Sun," and "All Star," although making a KH AMV out of either one would take some MAJOR artistic lisence and a whole lot of creativty. XD; I think it could be a lot of fun, though, so I put it up for offers. "All Star" is the one that reminds me more of summer (which is random, but how I feel), so it's the one I'll post the lyrics to:

I can think of more (especially with the word "summer" in the title! XD), but that's enough of me for now. What are some songs that remind you guys of summer, twilight town, or destiny's islands?
