Do you ever think of a certain Homestar Runner character when you hear a song? "Man In The Box" by Alice In Chains makes me think about Strong Sad, somehow.

Edit: "The Unforgiven" by Metallica also makes me think of Strong Sad.

I dunno about songs, since I loose the ability to hear English 98% of the time when music is playing, but the characters from the 90s CLUE book series remind me of Homestar characters. Strong Bad is a lot like Mr Green, Homestar is a lot like Professor Plum, Mrs. Peacock is a bit like Marzipan, the KoT is a bit like Mr. Boddy.

::Thinks about it for awhile::

Well....I guess whenever I hear a techno song that can barely pass as techno, I think of Pompom, 80s video game music reminds me of Strong Bad's old computers, I guess the entire "Tragic Treasury" by Gothic Archies will totally remind me of Strong Sad from now on. "You're so Vain" by Carley Simon will now remind me of Strong Bad. Anything by "They Might be Giants" makes me think of both Strong Sad, & Puppet Homestar. Any Babershop Quartet reminds me of The Sneak & The Announcer.

I'm listening to Caramelldancing right now, and it made me think of Bubs.

Edit: Oh, and "The Day That Never Comes" by Metallica reminds me of Strong Sad (since it sounds like stuff I'd say to him.)

Most of Antrax's classic material really reminds Me of Strong Bad.

Average Man by Reel Big Fish really reminds me of Coach Z... I even made storyboards for a music video awhile back. Maybe I'll animate it someday...

I don't know why, but for some reason now, there are two songs that collectively remind me of the Brothers Strong. One of them is "It's Not Unusual" by Tom Jones, which reminds me of Strongs Mad and Sad ("It's not unusual to be mad with anyone/It's not unusual to be sad with anyone"). And the other is "My Favorite Things", as heard in "The Sound of Music", which kind of reminds me of Strongs Bad and Sad ("When the dog bites/When the bee stings/When I'm feeling sad/I simply remember my favorite things/And then I don't feel so bad").

No SONGS persay, but Kenny from South Park & Boomhauer from King of the Hill remind me of The Cheat.

Technically, that wasn't originally a Salsa Commodity song. Just so you know. I happen to like the original version much better. But maybe I'm just biased.
