01 kris allen. like we were dying
the close call
Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
We could make a feast from these crumbs
And we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
So if your life flashed before you, what would you wish you would’ve done

02 mutemath. electrify
the physical attraction - watson
She knows every little way to get the thing that she wants
My heart is an oven
And she's pushing the buttons right now
Right now
She's gonna kill me with a stare and I'm very aware
No matter what I say
She's just walking away right now
But I'll be ready when she calls

03 florence + the machine. hardest of hearts
the hesitation in intimacy - holmes
There is love in your body but you can't get it out
It gets stuck in your head, won't come out of your mouth
Sticks to your tongue and shows on your face
That the sweetest of words have the bitterest taste

Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But you'll never know what a fool I've been
Darling heart, I loved you from the start
But that's no excuse for the state I'm in

04 a silent film. you will leave a mark
the move forward - holmes
I am of the west
I am fair skinned I deserve a bullet in my chest
If I have no religion I've no reason to be scared
I am going to hell but I just don't care

05 mutemath. you are mine
the watson addiction - holmes
Everyone has their obsession
consuming thoughts
consuming time
they hold high their prized possession
it defines the meaning of their life

06 florence + and the machine. between two lungs
the emotional commitment
Between two lungs it was released
The breath that passed from you to me
That flew between us as we slept
That slipped from your mouth into mine
It crept between two lungs

07 envy & other sins. the company we keep
the partnership in victorian times + the mary dilemma
They might be watching us
They'd like to lock us up, but
Come on, for me, sweet, they are cross
We can be greater than the sum of all the parts

You and I
We're like Jekyll and Hyde
More than Bonnie and Clyde
But I promise you we'll get by
Just don't expect me
To lay down and die
For your wandering eyes
Just make a choice or let it lie

08 mutemath. spotlight
the depression - holmes
You got a whole lot left to say now
You knocked all your wind out
You just tried too hard and you froze
I know, I know
What do you say, what do you say
Just take the fall

09 onerepublic. all the right moves
the view from outside - criminals of london
I know we've got it good
But they've got it made
And the grass is getting greener each day
I know things are looking up
But soon they'll take us down
before anybody's knowing our name

Do you think I'm special?
Do you think I'm nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear
And the sound you like
Are we just sinking in an ocean of faces?

10 jace everett. bad things (bonus track)
the culmination of lust
When you came in the air went out
And every shadow filled up with doubt
I don't know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you

.zip file (containing all ten songs + cover art)

ETA: It was just brought to my attention that track 07 may not work for some media players, so I've uploaded a different file to, hopefully, fix the problem.
I've also added the cover art to the .zip file, because I'm obviously an idiot. :P

Downloading! Very excited to have a new fanmix, and I love the back cover and the way it calls attention to Holmes's hand on Watson's arm. :D Thanks for sharing!

OK, just- Hardest of Hearts? Has been my theme for them for AGES, and I am so glad to see I'm not alone!

Looks awesome! *scuttles off to poke about at the songs* <3
Niet Paniek: STOCK ♠ Horserandom00 on December 15th, 2009 10:22 pm (UTC)
Thank you very much. ♥

I adore Florence and the Machine, so to stumble upon the connection to Holmes and Watson apparent in a few of her songs had me flailing a bit. Especially Hardest of Hearts; the song's amazing.

Thank you! Florence and the Machine seems to be a selling point for a few people. (As they should be, they're quite a good band). :D

This is a fantastic mix, but for some reason track 7 will not open in any music player. Can you link to another version of the file?

Thank you very much.

And thank you for the heads up. I've tried a different file type which seems to work in iTunes and Realplayer, so hopefully that works for you. :) New Link

omg omg omg omg ngl i listened to this AAAAALL through my four hours of work. (well, when i driving; i deliver.) and. and. omg. i love all of these songs so much but in particular live like you're dying, and YOU ARE MINE. HOLY CRAP. i swear i started smacking the steering wheel while i was listening because it is JUST. SO. FITTING.

i have a serious need for more of these artists now. particularly mutemath, i am so loving those songs.
Niet Paniek: PSYCH ♠ Merry Christmasrandom00 on December 16th, 2009 03:54 am (UTC)
Wow! I'm incredibly pleased that you like it so much! :D I was a little worried that the lack of variation, in regards to the artists, would be kind of a negative thing, but I liked the songs so much, and I thought they were so fitting that I had to put them in.

Mutemath is kind of amazing. Although they're a weird band, in terms of, half of their songs are absolutely amazing, and the other half are, imho, kind of shoddy. But give them a listen anyhow! :D

Again, thank you very much for the kind words!

I know how you feel. I either have to go to the midnight premiere on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, or I won't be able to see it until sometime after January 14th.

Anyhow! I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I have.
