Title: And This Great Blue World of Ours
Notes: In no particular order, 22 songs that remind me thematically or otherwise of the WIP AU by [ profile] vail_kagami, And This Great Blue World of Ours, which I am beta-ing. The story is an AU from 5.18 that is astounding in terms of plot, prose, and character. It is still unfinished, but I heartily recommend it.


inside of you, in spite of you • thoushaltnot
• I am hidden memories that you seek
I am the sun before you see me rise
I burn still when you close your eyes
I am the soul that never dies when flesh is weak

I am inside of you in spite of you
With strength and sacred grace
But for all you do
I'll carry you
From this bitter place •

dust in the wind • kansas
• I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind
Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see •

kingdom of rust • doves
• I hear a sound above
A sound above my head
The distant sound of thunder
Booming out on the moor •

those who stayed • murder by death
• instrumental •

nemo • nightwish
• This is me for forever
One of the lost ones
The one without a name
Without an honest heart as compass

This is me for forever
One without a name
These lines the last endeavor
To find the missing lifeline •

25 years • blackmore’s night
• 25 years since I woke up trembling
25 years since that terrible dream
I could see that the world was crumbling
Nothing is ever as it seems

Tried to run but my feet were frozen
Tried to scream but there was no sound
In my head voices echoing •

i’ve been riding with the ghost • songs: ohia
• I've been riding with the ghost
I've been doing whatever he told me •

paper cities • other lives
• This land was once a home
Of friends and family
We used to know
They are all gone now
They are now gone
And for what I cannot tell •

stare at the sun • thrice
• 'Cause I am due for a miracle
I'm waiting for a sign
I'll stare straight into the sun
And I won't close my eyes
Till I understand or go blind

I see the parts but not the whole
I study saints and scholars both
No perfect plan unfurls
Do I trust my heart or just my mind
Why is truth so hard to find in this world •

100 generations • thoushaltnot
• So father kill your daughter
Mother kill your son
Swallow up the universe
'Til all the killing's done
It happens when you slumber
It happens unaware
Out of every human eye
A hundred generations stare •

the lion and the wolf • thrice
• The lion’s outside of your door, the wolf’s in your bed.
The lion’s claws are sharpened for war, the wolf's teeth are red.
What a monstrous sight he makes mocking man's best friend.
Both the wolf and lion crave the same thing in the end •

new year • thoushaltnot
• The faces at the window
Are children in the womb
Black-eyed and still
But growing every day
You'll die on the outside
Or die in this room
Either way •

between • vienna teng
• There once was a time I was sure of the bond
When my hands and my tongue and my thoughts were enough
We are the same but our lives move along
And the third one between replaces what once was love •

the unforgiven • apocalyptica
• instrumental •

last agni-kai • avatar ost
• instrumental •

no sound but the wind • editors
• If I say shut your eyes
If I say look away
Bury your face in my shoulder
Think of a birthday
The things you put in your head
They will stay here forever
Our blood is cold
And we're alone, love
But I'm alone with you •

dark horse on the wind • susan mckeown
• Oh those who died for liberty
Have heard the eagle scream
All the ones who died for liberty
Have died but for a dream
Oh rise, rise, rise, Dark horse on the wind
For in no nation on the earth
More broken hearts you'll find •

man’s road • america
• Horizon rising up to meet the purple dawn
Dust demon screaming, bring an eagle to lead me on
For in my heart I carry such a heavy load
Here I am on Man's road •

decade and one • vienna teng
• As the white went down
I thought of the child upstairs
I thought of the god upstairs
That I couldn't believe
I thought of the chosen man
Asleep on his side of the bed •

didn’t leave nobody but the baby • o brother, where art thou ost
• Go to sleep little babe
Go to sleep little babe
You and me and the devil makes three
Don't need no other lovin' baby •

night ride across the caucausus • loreena mckennitt
• In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching waiting
They are witnessing life's mysteries •

cardinal directions • thoushaltnot
• And if I had my way
I'd make the clock rewind
I'd live again that moment
Though I know I'll never find
The future that I missed
A parallel line
Where the world would be so bright
That it could make us all go blind
And if I had my day
There's so much I'd reclaim
The sanctity of motion
The neverending rain
The cardinal directions
All pointing to the past
Where realities converge •

Just a quick note: I'm so happy this is finally up! (And don't worry about the wait, there are more importanting things in life than posting mixes for virtual strangers. I really appreciate that you did this!)
Sadly, there's a big family party at my house today and I'm involved in the preparations, so I won't have time to really look at this until tonight. (Else I'll be skinned alive.) I'll leave a comment as soon as I did!

So. I listened to it now and I love the songs you've chosen for it! Most of the songs I didn't know before, but they are all very fitting (love the lyrics you listed). Also, the cover you created for it really fits the world I had in mind.

Thank you so much for this!

There's one thing, though: A lot of the songs don't work. They play, but there is no sound, and converting them to another type didn't work either. Could you possibly fix that? I'd love to hear them, and I'd also like to link to this fanmix in my masterpost (if you don't mind).

These are the broken ones:
Dust in the Wind
100 Generations
Cardinal Directions
Inside of You, In Spite of You
25 Years

:D Whee, I'm so glad it works for you! It was a fun mix to make. And I am a bit proud of the cover, if I may be so.

I'm sorry about the songs! I reuploaded the whole thing, actually, because they were actually iTunes protected files. >> Usually I'm so good at weeding those out! But it should be fixed now. Do you need the individual downloads, or is just redownloading okay with you?

You're welcome; it was my pleasure.

From: [identity profile]

I downloaded it again and all works well now, thank you very much!

I'm going to post a link to this with the new chapter on Friday.

From: [identity profile]

Wow!! This is wonderful! I had never downloaded any fanmix before, but this story is so wonderful that I just *had* to try it! And I absolutely loved the songs you chose!!

This is the perfect mix between nostalgic, mysterious, epic and kind of hopeless. Exactly what reading ATGBWOO makes me feel! This is going directly to my Ipod!!

By the way, listening to 'Dust in the Wind' while thinking about this fic, made me tear up completely...

From: [identity profile]

I love fanmixes, both the making of and the listening to. I'm so glad you enjoyed this one! I had a great time making it, trying to keep to the essence of the story and finding music that reminded me of it.

I think the one that gets me is "Paper Cities", actually, which I used before for a Winchesters in general fanmix. >>

From: [identity profile]

Since you're taking about your favourites here, I think the ones that get me most in regard to the fic are 25 Years, Nemo and Inside of You, In Spite of you. A lot of the others, too, but these are the ones that spring to mind most. (Along with some songs not included in this mix, like War by Poets of the Fall, or Cold as It Gets by Patty Griffin - if you don't know it, check the lyrics. It's my Cas-to-Dean song. I'd make a mix of my own, but uploading anything would get me arrested in my coutry and I'm too much of a coward to risk it. Sucks.)

I got your mix on a special playlist which I'm listeing to whenever I write this story.
By the way, did I tell you how happy it made me that you included some Vienna Ten songs? One I didn't even know yet.
