It’s been over a week since the last episode aired, and there’s only so many times I can re-watch old episodes til the show comes out of hiatus in August, so I thought I’d share my favourite songs from Steven Universe. ❤
Edited to include Soundcloud links instead of YouTube because the videos I embedded were getting taken down. 😐
Spoilery if you haven’t watched everything, I guess? You have been warned.
10. Strong In the Real Way (Episode 20: Coach Steven)
And can’t you see that she’s out of control / And overzealous? / I’m telling you for your own good / And not because I’m- .
Starting off with a bit of downer, but I feel for Pearl here. </3
9. Tower of Mistakes (Episode 62: Cry for Help)
I see a tower built out of my mistakes / And it all comes crashing down
Another downer, sorry, but Amethyst’s vulnerable moments are always amazingly done.
8. What Can I Do (Episode 60: We Need To Talk)
What can I do / for you? / What can I do / That no one else can do?
I like this song mostly because I love Rose Quartz’s voice. She was voiced by Susan Egan, who also voiced my favourite Disney lady, Megara. ❤
7. Be Wherever You Are (Episode 30: Island Adventure)
Isn’t this such a beautiful night / Whoa, we’re underneath the thousand shining stars / Isn’t it nice to find yourself somewhere different / Whoa, why don’t you let yourself just be wherever you are
It’s just such a feel good song. Also a pretty good reminder to live in the moment.
6. The Jam Song (Episode 57: Sworn to the Sword)
The sun is bright / our shirts are clean / we’re sitting up above the sea / Come on and share this jam with me!
This is such a fun, cute little ditty between Steven and Connie.
5. Comet (Episode 48: Story for Steven)
This life I chose isn’t easy / but sure is one heck of a ride / At the moment that I hit the stage /
I hear the universe calling my name
I always like flashback episodes that show rockstar-Greg. Also because it means more of the Gems pre-Steven. I NEED MORE BACKSTORY OF EVERYTHING.
4. Love Like You (Ending Theme)
If I could begin to be, / Half of what you think of me, / I could do about anything, / I could even learn how to love
Really soothing. Not in the video, but the various instrumental parts are good too.
3. We Are The Crystal Gems (Opening Theme)
Cause we’re good and evil never beats us / We’ll win the fight and then go out for pizzas
Using the clip from the pilot because I like the pizza line haha! I would have linked to the extended opening they debuted at this year’s SDCC, but there isn’t a non-cam version up yet.
2. Giant Woman (Episode 12: Giant Woman)
But if it were me, I’d really wanna be a giant woman, / A giant woman! / All I wanna do is see you turn into a giant woman~
Since I first watched Steven Universe out of order, Giant Woman was the first episode I saw. The song is so catchy, I had it stuck in my head for two weeks.
1. Stronger Than You (Episode 52: Jail Break)
And you’re not gonna stop what we made together / We are gonna stay like this forever / If you break us apart, we’ll just come back newer / And we’ll always be twice the gem that you are./ I am made / Of / Love
Okay, I am Garnet trash. #SORRYNOTSORRY. Even if I weren’t, this would still be my favourite. Maybe because it’s the longest so far, it feels more complete? Really powerful lyrics though. Gives me goosebumps and everything.
What are your favourite songs from the series? Let me know! The reason I came up with my own list was because I disagreed with most of the top song lists I’ve come across on YouTube. 😛
