Songs from A River Runs Through It

A selection of the music mentioned during the Era with added commentary and context to player's song choice.

  • Formatting thoughts: advance tables to include rowspan? wait until next Era?
  • Although not mentioned in chat, it seems fitting to say start with Bruce Springsteen - The River.

And BOB's contribution for the start of the Era is:


Leg A

Session: Sep1517
Deep Blue Something - Breakfast At Tiffany'sIndigo and Ilero talk about the death, the gods, prophecies, and lacking friendship between the Greeks and Tiera.

Session: Oct2717
Hercules - Zero to HeroShurkural asks Sam what he wants in life. Money, power, love, family, respect, fear, what? Everyone needs some goal in life.
The Lion King - I Just Can't Wait To Be KingIf a bugbear can become king, so can you, Sam! But yes, titles can be helpful.
The Legend of Zelda - Inside Ganon's CastleSome thematic music as we reach Cornelia, home of the witch vampire who is also queen. And probably wants us dead.
O, Brother, Where Art Thou? - Go To Sleep Little BabyYes, again, but in relation to a conversation about charming.
Session: Nov0317
Wicked - For GoodHow do we know this apparent witch queen is bad? Good witches exists, too, right?

Into the Woods - Witch's Lament"Children won't listen no matter what you know. / From something you love to something you lose kill."
Mulan - Bring Honor To Us AllDirty, travel-worn Branwyn is led away to be washed and dried, rinsed and polished until [she glows] with pride. Just the recipe for instant bride! You'll bring honor to us all.

The Muppets Movie - Movin' Right AlongDiscussing travel and teleportation plans with the Queen's timeline.
