Looking for a theme song

Hey everyone,

this might be a bit unusual, but I'm looking for some kind of song for my character.

We use music to amplify our gaming experience, we have stuff for fights, music for investigation and the likes. It's kind of subtle (like: Midnight Syndicate - Darkness Descends) and always without or very few vocals.

I've been looking for quite some time now but I can't find something fitting for my character, so I'll try asking you guys. Maybe some of you also use music and know where to look to find good music.

The character is a cheery, kind Lyrandar airship captain as the general theme and a Scoundrel as class.

So the music should also go into that category, have a cheerful tune to it, while also having a bit of depth to it (so no carnival stuff ;) ). I know it isn't really easy and it's my first time to search for a theme song, so I don't really know what to look for.

If you need additional information, feel free to ask.
Something from the background track of a pirate movie?
Another day, another three or four entries to my Ignore List.
I've already thought about that, lead me to this homepage with has a shitload of good information on it.

Already a great start, thanks! :3
"Jack Sparrow" from the Pirates of the Carribean soundtrack. It might be a bit too much at parts but overall very humorous and light.

The theme from the movie Madagascar might also fit you well. Nothing screams Fun! *quite* like it to me.

Also, notice the similarity? I find it impossible to go wrong with Hans Zimmer in general. I'm sure if you look through his amazing plethora of brilliant music, you could find something.

Look at Abney Park - Aether Shanties.

There are bands that have airship songs.

Wow, that one is golden!

Thanks a lot, to all of you, some real good music.

My shifter druid uses "Werewolves of London" (Warren Zevon) as his theme song, that's for the lyrics.

Battle ahead?  "Foreplay/Long Time" (Boston), especially the first one.

"Shine on You Crazy Diamond" (Pink Floyd) has a hugely long instrumental lead-in that may work for a 'growing slowly in the distance you see an airship approaching the field" scene.

There has to be a Led Zeppelin - pardon the pun - song that you can use.  And if the plot requires the airship to crash...

I found an album, "Wagner's Ring Without Words", that may help too.  The best one-and-a-half hours of music from a three-night-long play!

Best complements I have yet received:

Making it up as I go along:

{BRJN} If I was writing the Tome of Lore, I would let Auppenser sleep. But I also would have him dream. In his dreaming he re-activates the innate powers of (some) mortal minds. Or his dreaming changes the nature of reality - currently very malleable thanks to Spellplague &c. Or whatever really cool flavor text and pseudo-science explanation people react positively to.

{Lord_Karsus} You know, I like that better than the explanations for the Spellplague.

 

{BRJN} If Bhaal approves of The Joker, does he approve of Jack Nicholson's portrayal or Heath Ledger's protrayal more?

{Stigger} That question is utterly classic, and completely on target.

 

Prepped ahead of time:

I started the 4e thread "1001 Failed Interrogation Results" (now lost in that great electronic goodnight, alas)

{ADHadh} These are all good and make sense! I just can't come up with something that's not covered here and is not completely ridiculous.

Active:

none yet - gotta find a group !

Character Ready-to-go:

Erevyn Meliamne, Wood elf Monk1, inspired by "Radar O'Reilley" from M*A*S*H

Concepts I'm kicking around:

Barbarian w/Tough feat, to be nearly indestructible

"Truenamer" cleric - all spells are Verbal

"Buggy" Wizard - insect flavor on everything.  His DMPC / BBEG version is going to become a Lamia.  Because lichdom is so cliche.

don't know about you, but i always like "Eye of The Tiger" by Survivor as my theme
"For glory" by Two Steps From Hell. Great song for epic battles
Look up "Michael Bolton Jack Sparrow".
