RE8 Music HC’s because [REDACTED]
None of these are hot takes,, they are in fact the coldest of takes <3 sdbsnjd
Could not hold a tune if his life was in danger
Knows he can’t sing so he purposefully sings badly
Does really bad growls (vocal fry? Is that the word?) while jamming in the factory. It’s literally just screaming (Sebastian Bach trying to hit That Note in Gethsemane. If you know what I’m referencing you get a cookie) he tries doing whistle notes but it’s just his vocal chords begging for mercy sdnsknd
The Duke has earplugs specifically for when he’s in the Factory bc Heisenberg’s singing could topple God
Can never remember any of the lyrics so it’s just
‘ hmmhnhmbm tr a c t o r r r djoommhmn’
Yes he listens to country dnsdj also early rock and blues. Probably loves Blue Oyster Cult, like the king he is
Calls Alcina’s music Fancy Shit bc he hates opera but,, he also likes some Jazz now and again.
lots of jumping if he’s really getting into it - uses his powers to create the Drums in whatever he’s listening to. Just banging shit around and absolutely vibing.
Also y’know those videos of Conductors just going absolutely apeshit? If he ever listens to classical that’ll be him.
tbh he’d probably be a good percussionist, he has solid rhythm.
Everything is on tapes bc he likes the sight of em all stuffed messily in his drawers. Probably owns a walkman <3
he would shit himself if he found out about IPods but that’s a whole nother convo y’all
I will live, die and be buried on this hill - she sings opera extremely loudly at 2 am when shes mad <3
She has a piano too,, just imagine her sitting and the piano and performing??
Bc yes she fucking PERFORMS. In that classic Theatre Star way <3
Alternatively Jazz? She seems jazzy to me.
Strong belting. Very,, meaty I guess? I don’t know musical terminology but her voice is very full. Like when you bang a really big drum and it reverberates through your body.
Will gently nod her head to The girls’ pop songs bc they’re catchy. Seeing them have fun is so cute so she’s just,, smiling while they dance around like goofs.
goofs I say. Absolute goofery.
She doesn’t have a very strong voice, but she can just barely hit some decent high notes so,, y’know it balances out
the kind of voice you’d want to fall asleep to. Just,, really nice music box sounding.
She probably adores nursery rhymes and hums them while she does stuff bc they comfort her. Esp ones her parents would sing her as a kid
She loves irish lilting bc it sounds so,, magical to her?? It just has such a warm cozy feeling
favorite instrument to listen to is the piccolo - any wind instrument, really!!
Has a billion music boxes and sometimes Angie will run around cranking all of them <3 you can hear it from the other side of the village lmao,, a Pest (affectionate).
he sings the actions he’s doing to keep himself on track
Does stupid hand movements and cannot dance <3 but we love him for it
He isn’t really picky about music? He’s probably also a country lad but he’ll never say no to some Pop
oh,, Heisenberg and Ethan rocking out,, please go bd,,, husbands,, husbands,,
He’s a dad lmao you know how he sings. Really silly voices (Doug Eiffel style lmao), failing to go high for female vocals and instead going even deeper, etc
musical theatre. Fiddler, Guys and Dolls, etc. Also a big fan of Shanties bc I HC he grew up around a lotta sailors.
His vocal chords are always raw bc of the acid (even if he’s highly resistant, it still has a lot of effects overtime) so it’s hard to speak let alone sing
I’ve talked about this so much lmao but it’s so deep. It also rattles your bones, like when there's a bunch of speakers in a gymnasium and it feels like you’re actually gonna melt into a puddle.
He’ll hum melodies of shanties he’s heard in the past. Mostly slower songs, bc it’s hard for him to speak fast. Lovey Dovey theatre songs are his favorites, the sap (No One Else from NPATGC, Poor Wandering One from Pirates of Penzance, etc)
He also really loves film scores!!
Mans is vv good at memorizing lyrics. He will listen to 1-4 songs on repeat for a month until its ingrained in his head lmao <3
the only fucking man who owns CD’s bc he isn’t insane. They’re neatly kept in labeled folders, thank you very much.
Surprisingly good singer? I mean he’s been around for probably a few centuries at least he’s had some time to practice lmao
I can imagine him sounding like a 40′s crooner - very light, smooth and buttery. His whistling is way better than his singing, in his opinion.
awe imagine a casual/joking Alcina + Duke duet,, wlw mlm solidarity y’all
Don’t be surprised if you hear him humming/singing while he sorts things - keeps him occupied. Stops him from feeling too lonely, too 3
Music has a lot of meaning for him!! He kinda uses it to keep track of time/dates/centuries and a lot of his strongest memories are associated to music
Surprisingly?? Mostly not picky. He’ll pretend to be, obviously, but he genuinely just,, loves music in general. Experimental weird indie shit? Old 1800s concertos? Oh, how he loves the things humankind creates <3.
OHO his record collection is out of this world. He especially loves ones with imperfections/faults. Also he refuses to switch to CD’s out of stubbornness, and bc records are so pretty.
He’d much prefer to play an instrument to singing!! He’s not really one for solos lmao - he’d much prefer sitting down and having a drink, singing in chorus with other merchants/townsfolk/sailors.
Plays the violin and piano - the basics of others, bc, he’s been around,, but mostly he sticks to those. Also brass instruments bc UGH it just hits right and he loves the sound
He loves music bc it brings people together <3
I hope y’all enjoyed!! Please lmk what you thought + add on whatever comes to mind!!
