If you're not using trip-hop Touhou remixes, you're doing it wrong. It works for everything.

Definitely for Action is Rock/Hard-Rock/Dubstep(As filthy as possible)/Industrial(etc.) just needs something with fast tempo...

I hate to say this, but that's something you are going to have to learn on your own by actually listening to music.
Do some searches. Check out recommended artists/albums. Listen to a variety of music genres.
Figure out what you like. Then set aside some time to just listen and enjoy... then everything will come together...
Do people do that anymore these days?

Doesnt everyone do this? They find music which suits their own tastes and edit with whatever genre they want their music to be edited to.

I'd like to think this is true; but it's the whole idea of 'exploring different types of music' where I have little faith in others. It's most apparent when people say they don't like Metal as an entire genre when they don't realize just how many sub-genres that actually entails; and wind up dismissing stuff that they would probably enjoy quite a bit, if they would only open up to the music in the first place :idea: . This brings me to an important point:

In this hobby, if there is anything worth investing your time into, it would be expanding your musical horizons.

yet we don't use the Music Discussion Forum enough...

    -----------------

Yes, you'll notice it's a bit skewed towards Metal, but for me there's good reason for that: Metal is typically based around Melody, which IMO is the cornerstone of all music (and even AMVs to a certain extent). I mean, when you actually do a comparison, there are more similarities to masterful symphonic pieces through Metal than through most other forms of music :!: . It just flows. It's easy to focus on. And easy to follow --just like an AMV should be-- So, for me it just seems natural to go in that direction, though you don't have to; but that's just the way I see it. And ofc, there's a lot of non-metal on that list too...

And no, I'm not saying this is music you should put on in the background while you do stupid shit on the computer (though sometimes that's okay). I mean, actually dedicate some time to lay down, close your eyes, with some headphones on, reasonably loud volume, and let the music take you for an hour, or however long the album is, undisturbed. For me, I tend to do this before I go to bed; and just forget. about. everything. else. in. the. world...

Now *this* is the type of stuff I wonder if people still do anymore.

I think too many people just try to get into the hobby, when they don't know enough about music to even say what they like. Yet I'm a firm believer that music is where it should all start. And I'm not trying to chew anyone out here... but at the same time, that's what I believe. Because once you are comfortable with music, AMVs can basically be viewed as a visual extension of it. (And yes, there's more to it than that, but hopefully everyone can get what I'm trying to say...)

-------------------------

Now, to get back to the original question: There are no clear cut answers. :(
But if you expand your musical palette, those anime-music connections will make much more sense.
And that's kind of something you have to explore on your own.
So... listen to more music; and also pay close attention to the anime-music pairings other people use in their own AMVs. :wink:
