Music in Fallout is a big part of the games, everyone has a favorite radio station, a favorite song, a memory they associate with the songs. But the 50s tunes are more than just background noise.
Fallout’s music is reflective of the game it appears in in many ways. For example, Fallout New Vegas is set in the American West, so the radio stations play mainly country. Not only is this appropriate for the theme, but it also fits the idea of what Pre-War Americans living in the Nevada area would have listened to. Fallout 3 & 4’s music is very jazz heavy, which also fits the idea of what a Pre War American in New England may have liked.
In Fallout: New Vegas, the country music has heavy themes of love, money, or moving on to something new. The songs all represent these themes in different ways, some songs are about falling in love (Mad About the Boy), leaving a trail of lovers behind you (Jingle, Jangle, Jingle), or missing a lover you had long ago (Johnny Guitar). It’s important that even though there are common themes within the radio songs, they are all very different. The themes of love, money, or moving on are also representative of what many people in the Mojave Wasteland want.
In Fallout 3 and 4, the music has mostly songs of either love, death, or radiation. Even the some of the songs about love have radiation incorporated (Crawl Out Through the Fallout & Rocket 69). The radio playing in the post nuclear apocalypse are almost all about the thing that demised the world. I believe it boils down to something simple that I’ve seen discussed many times.
The East Coast can’t move on from the nuclear war. Even 200 years after the war, people in the Capital Wasteland and Commonwealth are living in dilapidated shacks and have ghouls living in their basement. The ‘successful’ towns are glorified shantytowns of thrown together metal, nestled inside pre war locations (Megaton, Rivet City, Diamond City). The music represents the people of Fallout 3 and 4; they can’t move on.
Fallout: New Vegas, on the other hand, has little to no music relating to death or radiation. The people in New Vegas have towns all over the map, have electricity and the NCR was working on building a railroad all the way around the Mojave. They have simply moved on from the war that happened over 200 years ago.
New Vegas has messages of letting go (Dead Money) and the theme of ‘Old World Blues’, meaning people are clinging onto the pre war past instead of moving on and rebuilding society. The people of the Mojave Wasteland have moved on and rose up, while the people of the East have Old World Blues
Here it is! This is my first oneshot and longest piece yet – please be kind. As always, feedback is welcomed and appreciated. Happy reading! xxh
getting in a fight with harry and you almost break up and you have emotional sex where you’re both crying and stealing kisses and it’s raw and you’re both just so in love and i don’t know meaningful sex is so much better than just getting in each other’s pants when you feel like it – anon
Word count: 4.5k
Pairing: y/n & Harry
It was quite odd how you could feel so alone in a room so
full of people.
Music jumping off of the walls, a steady bass thumping in
your chest; laughter cutting through the air, cheers every so often as another
round was poured out. The energy was addictive, yet you felt as if you were
secluded in your own little bubble, away from everyone else and invisible to
the party guests.
Harry stood beside you, happily buzzing with a glass of whiskey
in hand. His laughs bellowed out from his chest and were much louder than
normal – amplified by the alcohol pulsing through his body. He wasn’t drunk,
but the extra confidence given to him by the glass he held was very obvious.
He’d turn to you, mouth parted and about to ask a
question, but was swiftly pulled away by an eager acquaintance to congratulate
him on ‘his big debut in Hollywood!’ or ‘his incredible new music!’. Harry was
too kind to just brush off the compliment with a simple “thank you,” and was
quickly taken up in another conversation, leaving you alone.
Since I’ve seen a lot of people asking, here is how you listen to the Breakfast Show on Fri:
You can stream it live on the Radio 1 website from any country. Since Scott is sitting in for Nick you will find a recording of the episode after it airs on his page here - the show will stay up for 30 days. I’m sure they will be promoting it heavily on the main homepage with links as well.
You can also download the BBC iPlayer Radio app on your phone and listen to the show that way (it’s a great app! highly recommended)
If they recorded video (which I believe they did based on that pic of Harry), I’m not sure it will air during the show or if they will just post clips on the Radio 1 youtube channel. If they do air it live, you can watch it via the Radio 1 website. NOTE: if you’re not in the UK you will need to use a VPN to watch it live. Youtube is accessible internationally.
Just a friendly reminder that the BBC iplayer radio does work in other countries and you have 17 more days to listen to the first episode of the 6 part Guards! Guards! program. Each episode is 30 minutes long and its completely free!
iHeartMedia has announced the lineup for its 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival, to be held Sept. 22 and 23 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Tickets for iHeartRadio Music Festival go on sale to the general public on July 28 at 1 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT. - Variety
When you arrived home after a long day of work and smelled
the roast, you knew Harry was up to something.
Either he wanted to talk over a very important decision with
you, or the tabloids were about to—if they hadn’t already—print a false or
prying story about you and he wanted to take your mind off it. However, you
still smiled as you slipped off your shoes and jacket.
It was the little things. That’s what no one told you about
marriage. Marriage wasn’t all about the Instagram posts praising each other, or
the mind-blowing sex, or the grand statements of affection. It was the foot
rubs after a long day, a roast in the oven as soon as you came home from work,
and the quick forehead kiss in the early morning when he woke before you. Those
little things kept the love alive.
what if neil had some sort of identity crisis? i mean he's cycled through so many personalities and looks so what if something happened that triggered him into wondering if 'neil josten' really was his true self? how do you think andrew and the foxes would react?
Oh, Neil would totally have a bunch of little identity crises that he tries to just shrug off two minutes later and it would eventually add up to a full blown one.
I feel like Neil’s pretty cemented in wanting to be Neil Josten and belonging with the Foxes
So, I’m seeing it more as a ‘Who the fuck am I? Oh, fuck, I’m still not the Neil they all think I am’ kind of thing
Like Neil has a bunch of memorized answers to things to try to not arouse people’s suspicions
But he doesn’t know the real answers to these questions?
Like sure, he can spout off a rehearsed answer to simple questions
But he doesn’t want to lie to the Foxes anymore and they’ve made Neil a real person, but he still doesn’t know who Neil is
And he’s starting to suspect that they all know Neil better than he knows Neil
And there’s this fear that he’s not really the Neil they see and know and that he’s still just chameleoning to blend in with whichever of them he’s with
It’s the little things that plant the seeds of doubt
Fucking tiny little questions that trip him the fuck up
What is his favourite movie?
Most people can at least come up with one movie that they like, even if they’re not sure it’s their favourite
Neil can’t come up with one movie that he even remembers having watched?
He just sits there on the sidelines for any movie discussions
Listening to my local country station at work the past few days I’ve learned a few things: •90% of the music is sung by guys. •Whiskey often rhymes with kiss me or the second favorite, miss me. •Often times to show they’re not thinking about a woman they write an entire song about how their not thinking of her. •Girl is their favorite word. Just listen to 3 songs I guarantee you’ll hear it at least 4 times. •Drink is almost always followed by think or vice versa (see also; thinkin/drinkin) •Everyone always seems to be looking at their “girl” that they’re singing about. •Jacked up, truck, drink, beer, mud, tires, hometown, and small-town are also hot topics in most songs not involving “girl” Unless the girl is drinking the beer and driving the truck and is from a small-town.
oh my gosh can you believe harry put out a life changing single yesterday and he broke the record for fastest track to reach #1 on us itunes and he went #1 in over 90 countries and radio stations all across the globe were playing it hourly and he’s been compared to music industry LEGENDS like david bowie time and time again and there’s been so many reviews saying the song has the potential to be a timeless classic and it’s so good that it’s literally indescribable and that it was a risk but he took it and it turned out phenomenally and that he’s unlike any artist that’s out on the radio now??? like,,,, HE DID THAT
Hi! Here we are to explain the first part of the project. So… welcome to #ProjectBackToYou!
Your help matters, because everyone is important. So if you want to give your
contribute, you are in the right place. Let’s find out how you can help!
Our idea is to organize a different marathon
every day of the week to focus all the attention of the fandom on that specific
thing. We thought different kinds of marathons. So we won’t risk that something
will be left out. The purpose of the marathons is to organize the promotion methodically.
So we have the certainty that everything will be done weekly and that fans
won’t forget to do something. In fact these marathons haven’t an end. We want
to keep this organization every week. So fans will always know what to do day
This is how we want to organize every week:
(July 21st): iTunes marathon: promote
“Back to you” on iTunes. People have to tweet: “Buy/Listen “Back to you” on iTunes” using the hashtag #BackToYou
and #ProjectBackToYou. Listening/buying “Back to you” on iTunes bring the song
at the top of worldwide charts.
Day Two (July 22nd): request “Back to you” to be played
on radios (you can find here the most important radio stations in your country). You have to tweet:
@radio’s nickname ! Can you play “Back To You” by Louis Tomlinson and Bebe
Rexha, please? Thank you!”
(July 23rd): streaming marathon on
Spotify. You have to stream the song on Spotify (here). It will help to keep the song
in different charts. Of course our purpose is bringing the song at the top. Check here how to stream properly on Spotify.
(July 24th): streaming marathon on YouTube. Don’t
forget to share the video on different social medias.
Day Five (
(July 25th): streaming marathon on Shazam. If you
want to get “Back to you” in the charts, you can use Shazam. All you have to do
is downloading the app, playing the song and letting the app recognize it. This
is a way to get the song in the charts.
(July 26th): thunderclap on Twitter. The purpose
of thunderclap is to spread a messange, because it is a crowdspeaking platform.
This is a way to make a message going viral. All you have to do is to join the
thunderclap. So the app will tweet the message automatically by your account on
the day set for the thunderclap (the day is the same for everyone). This is an example:
“Listen to “Back
to you” by Louis Tomlinson and Bebe Rexha on Spotify *link of the streaming*”.
We will post the link of the thunderclap after the release of the song.
Of course fans can do all these things daily (except the thunderclap),
even if it’s not the day of that specific marathon. In fact the purpose of the
marathons is to organize a kind of “parties” to focus all our effort and all
our attention on that specific thing, on that specific day. Marathons will help
to gain our goals quickly and effectively, but you can give you contribute
everyday in the way that you prefer. For example you can stream the song on
Spotify everyday, but also don’t forget to join the streaming marathon on
Wednesday. So you will help twice at the same time and when there will be the
marathon, your help will be greater, because there will be a lot of fans like
you doing the same thing, all together. We have to make waves of love everyday,
but joining a marathon is like to provocate a tzunami of love in one day,
focusing on one goal. Remember to be polite and nice, guys.
