I’ve done my part (twice, and I’ll probably go for a third, eventually). Now it’s your turn to ‘fess up to what tunes remind you of the O.G. of Darktubers Himself.

What songs do you think He’d listen to? What songs have lyrics that sound like a page taken from His life story? What songs have that vibe of a Big Demon Mood?

Come on and tell me. Tell the world what’s on your Darkiplier playlist.


Remember: Use the #darktober 2017 tag if you post on your own tumblr, so I can see it.

I may have cribbed a few of these from my friend’s Darkiplier playlist, but most of them are my idea.

Directly appropriate:

Disney’s The Little MermaidPoor Unfortunate Souls: (Linked to a metal cover, because why not?) Because Darkiplier is an actual literal Disney villain. We all know it.

If you want to cross a bridge, my sweet
You’ve got to pay the toll
Take a gulp and take a breath
And go ahead and sign the scroll!

Voltaire, When You’re Evil: A bit of a generic bad guy choice, but it’s a lot of fun!

It gets so lonely being evil
What I’d do to see a smile
Even for a little while
And no one loves you when you’re evil…
–I’m lying through my teeth!
Your tears are all the company I need!

Muse, Psycho: All about breaking someone down into an unthinking weapon. It may not be the preferred aesthetic, exactly, but the content is pitch-perfect.

So come to me now
I could use someone like you
Someone who’ll kill on my command
And asks no questions

Metric, Gold Guns Girls: not so much about Dark as about Warfstache, actually, but I think of it as WKM!verse Dark’s perspective on what his old friend has become so I figured I’d put it here.
I remember when we were gambling to win
Everybody else said HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
Is it ever gonna be enough?
Is it ever gonna be enough?
Is it ever gonna be enough?

Young Heretics, I Know I’m a Wolf: He’s totally safe, little rabbit. Promise.
And my teeth may be sharp
And I’ve been raised to kill
But the thought of fresh meat
It is making me ill
So I’m telling you that you’ll be safe with me

Ambience:

The Precursors, Now And Forever: It’s a video game music remix- the sound of a terrifying juggernaut. (The aliens in question turn out to be pretty “Woobie Destroyer Of Worlds”, so if WKM is true then it’s extra appropriate!)

The fandom on Dark:

Lenka, Trouble is a Friend: The lighter side of our collective relationship with the dude…

So don’t be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won’t let him in but I’m a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend
Yeah, trouble is a friend of mine

Halsey, Hold Me Down: …and the darker side.

I sold my soul to a three-piece
And he told me I was holy
He’s got me down on both knees
But it’s the devil that’s tryna
Hold me down, hold me down
Sneaking out the back door, make no sound
Knock me out, knock me out
Saying that I want more, this is what I live for

Nice selections! I’ll definitely be checking these out later!

(Of course, I love Disney and I’ve heard that Voltaire song once before.)

Phantom of the Opera and Music of the Night from, well, The Phantom of the Opera.

The Phantom in general gives me major Dark vibes so much so that I started an AU but that’s neither here nor there

Also “Emperor’s New Clothes”, but someone already brought up that one

I love Phantom! (The original cast, with Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman is my fave recording.)

And yeah, “Music of the Night” definitely has Dark’s let-me-in vibes.
