I got a couple more suggestions

Captain Haddock:"Animal I have become"by Three Days Grace
The Thompsons:"I write sins not tragedies"by Panic at the Disco

I don't know why that one for the Thompsons, but the lyrics somehow just sounded appropriate:)

"La Fee Clochette" by Polo suits Tintin for some reason. The lyrics are completely irrelevant but the sound fits

also, "Cruel Mistress" by Flogging Molly fits Captain Haddock

Now that I heard "Bottoms up" by Nickelback today, I can´t help but think it truly fits Captain Haddock. The lyrics even mention whisky.

Ever since I saw the new movie, I've made a music video in my head of it to Simon & Garfunkel's "Sound of Silence." I'd elaborate, but that would mean movie spoilers...

I also feel that parts of "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables are an accurate assessment of how the Captain regards Tintin ("He's like the son I might have known/If God had granted me a son..."). At least, that's my view; I've felt that, particularly from the Inca duology and onwards, that the Captain took on more of a fatherly role to Tintin, what with opening up Marlinspike Hall to him and unflinchingly following him to wherever in the world Tintin ended up...

Hmm... personally I think Tintin plays more of a fatherly role to Captain Haddock, despite him being the older one.

I even found a song for Haddock´s ancestor Sir Francis Haddock: "New Horizons" by Serenity. It´s about Sir Francis ;) Drake but also fits Archie´s ancestor.

I think "One More Time, One More Chance" by Yoshizaki Masayoshi fits for Tintin and Chang's friendship. Although the lyrics tells the story of never-happened rendezvous, the melancholic melodies somehow fits the time when Tintin rescued Chang at Tibet.

And for the whole adventure (and specifically Tintin's life), I think Gun's & Roses from Paradise Lunch is a perfect fit ;).

Fan by K-Hip Hop (Korean Hip Hop) group Epik High is the other song that fits most of Tintin's adventures, despite the song being Korean.

I think a K-pop song where the music fits Tintin’s adventures well is Before the Dawn by Infinite.
If not K-pop then it’s Jessie J.'s Do it Like a Dude

By the way , hi ! I’m new…!

Moderator Note: Hello, and welcome! We do ask that members try and stick to standard English grammar, so it’s easier to understand what has been written - this includes using upper- and lower-case letters. Your message has been edited accordingly.

Also you might need to explain that, for those not familiar with the pop scene around the world, “K-pop” is Korean pop music; you might also like to let people know why you think these tracks you suggest seem to be associated with Tintin!
