This is kind of a hodgepodge, but I thought I’d share the songs that inspired the stuff I wrote this week. I always write with music in the background and my iPod is basically one giant Sabriel playlist, but I narrowed it down to my favorites. I realize this is a lot of songs, but I promise I DID narrow it down. NOW WITH DOWNLOAD LINK!
Warning: A lot of these songs are pretty angsty, but more often than not I’m sobbing over my Sabriel feels than anything else, so most of my songs reflect that. Some are fun, though.
These are in no particular order, although “Since You’ve Been Around” might be my favorite. The ones with stars next to them are the ones for which I wrote audio post fanfiction this week.
Tried to hit 3 birds with one stone : completing sweet Lali’s request, also makes a contribution to Sabriel Week 2012 (the end of it, really) and delivering you this baby on Easter !
Happy Together - Simple Plan Candyman - Christina Aguilera Love - G. Love I Wanna Be Your Lover - Prince King Of Anything - Sara Bareilles Chu Chu Lovely Muni Muni Mura Mura Purin Purin Boron Nurururerorero - Maximum the Hormone First Lady - Julien Doré Always All Ways (Apologies, Glances and Messed Up Chances) - Lost Prophets Dream A Little Dream Of Me - Mamas and the Papas Bambous - Caravan Palace Gives You Hell - The All-American Rejects
I could write a whole page about why I picked those songs for this, but I believe the purpose of a fanmix is for you to listen to the music accordingly to the pairing and let your own imagination roll.
Title: I Wish I Had An Angel Summary: Happy Sabriel Week, Supernatural fans! I decided to kick off with a short fanmix, bringing together some music you don’t often see on tumblr. This is a darker fanmix (except the final song, which is sweeter), focusing on the struggles of the relationship following the Tuesday incident and various character deaths, vessel-ing, etc., etc., etc. I also used a few songs with a strong Norse feel to them, since Gabriel is Loki.
1. I WISH I HAD AN ANGEL - NIGHTWISH → i’m in love with my lust, burning angel wings to dust. i wish i had an angel tonight.
2. BROTHER’S BANE - TÝR → there’s no reason to defend, nothing can harm him. let’s say it’s pretend.
3. THE HEART OF EVERYTHING - WITHIN TEMPTATION → for the pain and the sorrow caused by my mistakes, won’t repent to a mortal whom is all to blame.
