With Sims Sessions in full swing and music on everyone’s mind, I started thinking about songs that fit some of my favourite premade Sims from different packs. The residents of StrangerVille were at the top of my list because I just knew their playlist would be unique. A town full of paranoid Sims either trying to cover up or unravel a huge government conspiracy? Sounds like a party!
So here is your StrangerVille playlist, inspired by none other than the residents of StrangerVille themselves!
Erwin Pries, “Somebody’s Watching Me” by Rockwell
Erwin has good reason to be so paranoid of everyone and everything but that doesn’t change the fact that he’s a little… eccentric because of it. Rockwell’s song about a guy who thinks he’s being watched everywhere he goes could honestly be Erwin’s theme song.
George Cahill, “God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash’s soulful lament about working so hard just to be struck down by a higher power really resonates with George Cahill’s backstory. After all, he was literally struck down out of the air while flying over StrangerVille and now lives in the ruins of his beloved plane.
Ted Roswell, “Miss Murder” by AFI
Ted might seem like the man in charge in StrangerVille. He is the mayor of the town but he’s actually at the mercy of The Mother and is doing her bidding by protecting the lab’s secrets. He’s been infected with StrangerVille’s virus and it’s not hard to imagine that the Miss Murder figure AFI sings about is actually The Mother, controlling Ted.
Meredith Roswell, “Mad Woman” by Taylor Swift
Meredith might seem like the perfect little housewife to the mayor but Ted is hiding some pretty big secrets and even if Meredith is in on the scheme, I can’t help but think she’s probably pretty angry about being treated like a Stepford Wife in all of this madness. She just might snap one of these days and when she does, watch out!
Jess Sigworth, “I’m So Sick” by Flyleaf
Jess works at the military base and has unfortunately been exposed to the toxic plants in StrangerVille. She’s infected with the virus and Flyleaf’s song, “I’m So Sick” feels like it suits her. She’s literally sick from doing her duty to StrangerVille and is probably pretty freaked out by what’s happening to her.
Dylan Sigworth, “(You’re The) Devil in Disguise” by Elvis Presley
Poor Dylan just wanted to be a stay-at-home dad and raise a happy family in a quiet town as a loyal military husband but he’s been completely blindsided by his wife’s bizarre behaviour lately. It’s like he doesn’t even know her these days and Elvis Presley’s song about being in love with someone who’s disguising themselves describes his situation pretty well.
Christie Sigworth, “Eva” by Nightwish
Christie is just an innocent kid who really doesn’t have any idea what’s going on in StrangerVille. This song by Nightwish about a child being born into a dark world that’s too cruel for her innocent nature fits Christie well.
Alice Martin, “White Rabbit” by Jefferson Airplane
Alice Martin and Alice in Wonderland have a lot in common apart from their names. Alice just wanted to be creative with like-minded friends in a town with an inspiring landscape but her roommate’s been acting odd lately and suddenly Alice has fallen down a dark rabbit hole of conspiracies and cover ups.
Mark Eggleston, “Get Out Alive” by Three Days Grace
Mark seems to be the only person who’s remained relatively untouched by the craziness in StrangerVille but it’s inching closer and closer to him, since his roommate, Leslie, is infected. This song by Three Days Grace describes someone who is watching the people around them fade away into the darkness and the only way for them to survive is to run far away from it. Maybe Mark should just run far away from StrangerVille.
Leslie Holland, “Disturbia” by Rihanna
Leslie just came to StrangerVille to live a peaceful, creative life with her friends in a scenic atmosphere but she’s been infected by StrangerVille’s toxic plants and she’s no longer in control of herself. Rihanna’s song about being frightened by the thoughts in one’s own head probably describes the confusion and paranoia Leslie is feeling.
