I saw a page on the good king website that compiled a list of songs that reminds us of Jon.

I rather liked the idea so I think I'm gonna start a thread about it.


1. Boulevard of Broken Dream by Green Day - Original version and Broadway version

The minute I heard this song after I found out Jon was no longer with us, I immediately felt this was the song a tribute to him (for me anyway). If you've seen my youtube page, you know I used the songs in my first videos. I feel I've been walking down the same road ever since I found out Jon was gone.

2. Don't stop believing - Glee Version

I kept catching glee commercials on tv after I found out Jon was gone(june 2010). I had bought a slide of him on ebay. My photo lab had done a horrible job enlarging the said slide so I used that as an excuse to buy a new scanner. I've been collecting memorabilia of Jon ever since(first seaquest stuff, then other stuff). I remember scanning my first memorabilia with this song playing and I also browsed the gallery on this site to this song.

3. The Seaquest Theme

I think this one is pretty obvious since Lucas is the role that made me notice Jon and it's also my favorite role of his.

4. Harder to breathe - Maroon 5

I read in an interview with one of Jon's friends that this was one of Jon's favorite songs. I listened to it over and over again when I found out he was gone. I don't listen to it much anymore but the song still equals Jon to me

5. Listen to your heart - DHT Edmee Vocal version

This is actually a song used in the first youtube tribute to Jon that I saw that made me cry for the first time. It has stayed with me ever since.

6. All I have to do is dream - The Everly Brothers

Stayed with me after I watched Ladybugs on bluray.

7. Bad romance - Lady Gaga

Again, this is a track used in a youtube video for Jon that I saw.

8. To the stars - Dragonheart soundtrack

I rewatched the movie shortly after I found out Jon passed away. The scene where Draco dies has always been emotional for me but this was much more intense. I started thinking about Jon the minute Draco died and I couldn't stop crying. I believe I cried for over an hour. This is also the reason why I used the track in one of my youtube videos.

"Ordinary World". Both the original by Duran Duran and the Red cover.

"Bittersweet" by Within Temptation.

If you look up the lyrics, you'll know why.

Just saw them both on youtube and I must say the 2nd one, bittersweet, is amazing...

That's one of my sister's favorite songs. I dunno, something about that song makes me feel really uneasy...

The old board had about 300 or so songs dedicated to Jonathan. It'll take some time to reassemble that list (usually with lyrics).

I was going to suggest "Mad World".

A long time ago I found a website that had a music playlist for Jon. A lot of it was Three Doors Down like "Away from the Sun". Another song though was "The Scientist" by Coldplay.

This one could have been written about our J-Man.
