are songs that seem to speak about Rogue and the situations
of her life.
A song about longing and loneliness. Angst away.
A prayer that Rogue might say in a time of hopelessness.
"Be a Man"
This might convey Rogue's feelings when she learned
that Gambit was married (circa X-Men #8).
"Before I Gaze at You
A song that very nicely corresponds to the emotional
turmoil Rogue might be feeling toward Gambit and any
desire she might have to rekindle their relationship.
"Could I Have this Kiss
by Whitney Houston and Enrique Iglesias
This might tie in to the few times that Rogue and
Gambit have been able to touch each other.
by The Eagles
This one could possibly describe Rogue post X-Men
#45, relating to Gambit's comment about how she can't
love anyone until she learns to love herself.
Another Rogue/Gambit relationship song.
A Rogue/Gambit song, this one could describe the
couple in the very early stages of their relationship,
or in the post-Onslaught/pre-Trial days when Rogue was
still debating between Gambit and Joseph.
by No Doubt
This song might convey how Movie!Rogue felt when Logan
"In the Eye"
by Suzanne Vega
Perhaps a song told from the point of view of someone
Rogue has absorbed permanently?
by Billy Joel
This song could go along with Rogue's emotional
state and withdrawal from the rest of the team after
returning from Antarctica. This might be from the point
of view of someone in the mansion, maybe Bobby or Logan,
speaking to Rogue.
by the Goo Goo Dolls
This song reminds me a lot of the final scene from
Uncanny X-Men #348, but I can't decide whose point of
view it better suits: Gambit or Rogue.
by Robbie Williams
Although it's a bit harsh, this song could characterize
Gambit's feelings of hurt about his and Rogue's failing
by Jon Secada
A good post-UXM #350 song, from Gambit's point of
view, if he was bitter about Rogue's abandonment of
him in Antarctica.
"More than This"
by The Cure
Another Rogue/Remy song, I could see this as being
from either's point of view, from the time when they
were both tiptoeing around the idea of actually getting
serious about each other.
"No Matter What"
A look at what the Rogue/Gambit relationship could have
(should have?) been. More angst.
by Robbie Williams
A good Gambit/Rogue counterpoint song, delving into
their attitudes toward each other and their relationship
"On the Side of Angels"
by LeAnn Rimes
Another song that could deal with the difficulties
had by Rogue and Gambit with their past and present
Sure, they played this as Scott and Jean's song
at their wedding, but look at the lyrics -- this is
really about Rogue and Gambit.
by K's Choice
Remy/Rogue relationship angst. Probably fits in sometime
after X-Men #45.
by Matchbox Twenty
This one might sum up all the contradictions of
Rogue's feelings toward Gambit.
by the Red Hot Chili Peppers
This song might apply to Movie!Rogue and the early trauma
of discovering her powers.
"She's the One"
by Robbie Williams
A Gambit-thinking-about-Rogue song, although this
one's a bit happier than most.
"Something I Can Never
by Nine Inch Nails
This song could represent Rogue from the time she
was dealing with surfacing memories in UXM 348 up to
the resolution of the Dr. Agee storyline.
"A Stroke of Luck"
A moody song that could relate to Rogue's attitudes
both toward Gambit and relationships in general.
by Tori Amos
Might convey some of the attraction Rogue's power holds
for her, particularly in her "evil" days.
"Surrender to Me"
by Ann Wilson and Robin Zander
This song possibly communicates Rogue and Gambit's tendency
to let things come between them, despite their attraction
to each other.
A song about escaping reality and dreaming about what
one really wants. Could also apply to Rogue's sharing
a body with Carol Danvers, when they would alternate
by The Wallflowers
Possibly an older Rogue looking back at the different
stages of her life?
"The Time Machine"
by Collin Raye
My god, this is turning into the Rogue and Remy
Angst-o-Rama! This is a good one, about a man trying
to drown his sorrows after a failed relationship.
"What About Love"
This might describe Rogue or Gambit at alternate times
in their relationship, with one ignoring or rebuffing
the advances of the other.
"What Can I Do"
by The Corrs
A song about Rogue's relationship with Gambit, as
seen through Rogue's eyes.
"Will You Still Love
by Roberta Flack
This song could go along with the end of UXM #348.
by Aimee Mann
Could be applied to Rogue's frustration with her powers
and seeming lack of acceptance of herself, especially
dealing with her quest for a "cure" from Dr.
"With or Without You"
Another Rogue/Gambit counterpoint song. They could be
singing alternate verses of this thing. He hurts her,
she hurts him, and it all spirals into this endless
cycle that they can't break.
by Diamond Rio
Let's all raise our hands and cheer -- It's another
Rogue/Gambit song! This one deals with some of the aftermath
of the lovebirds' interlude between UXM 348 and 349.
Mary Chapin Carpenter night...
I was listening to my MCC CDs
one night and found all these songs that seemed to relate
to Rogue. So here they are. :)
"House of Cards"
This one especially reminds me of the X-Men's
situation circa XM 70 and just afterward, with
everything threatening to destroy them from within.
"Shut Up and Kiss
This song has spunk. Gotta be a Rogue and Magneto
Rogue's battle with her powers and her insecurities
plays out well here.
"The Last Word"
This could represent both Rogue's haughty attitude
just as she was leaving Gambit in Antarctica,
or it could be a very bitter Gambit's response
to her abandonment of him.
"Ideas Are Like
Could be a Rogue and Joseph song. I wonder who
"loneliness" represents at the end of
No, not THAT Jubilee
Both Gambit and Rogue might suit this
song, about redemption and forgiveness.
"Let Me into Your
This would fit a Rogue that was more carefree
about love, etc. However, it could also be taken
from Joseph's point of view, speaking to Rogue.
Sarah McLachlan night...
What I said about the MCC night,
except with McLachlan.
Possibly a song that could deal with Rogue's
powers and general inner turmoil during the time
between her absorption of Ms. Marvel and her joining
of the X-Men.
Yet another UXM 348 song. Or it could also relate
to Rogue and Gambit's reunion of sorts in XM 81.
This could describe Rogue between UXM 348
and just before the Trial in UXM 350, with her
renewed love for Gambit, her fear and wariness
about the memories surfacing in her psyche, and
a good dose of foreshadowing of what was to come.
"I Will Remember
A song about a couple with a past that has
broken up or separated. This could work for either
Gambit or Rogue.
This may sum up Rogue and Gambit's relationship
up to XM 45 or UXM 350.
This struck me as being another Rogue/Gambit
song, although I can't quite explain why.
