I LOVE doing this for various 'Ships, and some of these ideas turn into absolutely *WIN* videos (hint, hint... ) So, I put forth to the rest of The Community: What would be your top songs to represent the E/J relationship?
I'm not going to require a certain specific number, because that's arbitrary and often limiting. Just pick the absolute best. (And remember, I've had about 15-20 years to come up with these ideas, so I might have a leg-up on some... ) I'll start with my top three:
* "Don't Worry, Baby" -- The Beach Boys * "Geeks Get the Girls" -- American Hi-Fi * "Accidentally In Love" -- Counting Crows
Might be back with more later. Trouble is, I'm more used to thinking of "soundtracks" for contentious fictional relationships rather than amicable ones, so I have to sort through a lot of mental detritus. Your thoughts on the matter are of course, greatly appreciated!

Well, I think a big part of it is the place it was released: the GB1 soundtrack.
And if you actually listen to the lyrics, about love triumphing over separation, that seems to me to be very indicative of their relationship, at least in the combined GBOT/fan fic universe. Between Egon's troubles admitting his feelings, Janine's stupid flings, and the six years between RGB and EGB, they have to endure a lot of separation before their happy ending.
Drat, the video (and the whole account) are offline. If only I could remember what song I was referring to... Silly me. The band is presumably Epica, though - they're the only band I know to have a gorgeous redheaded female singer.
Here's another cool song I've found, fitting for Egon / Janine in the "interim" period, mid-90s.
Tristania - Exile, Kjetil Nordhus as Egon and Mariangela Demurtas as Janine. That was one of my first thoughts upon hearing the song.
