The Ancient!John 'Verse Sountrack [S1]

July 19th is the one year aniversary of The Ancient!John 'Verse and in celebration I really want to do a special fic. I still might do that, but I've so swamped with RL issues lately that I decided to do the next best thing: a soundtrack.

Now I know that putting together a soundtrack for your own work is like indexing your own book, but, hey, I spent a long time in the car the past few days with little else to do than listen to the radio and so... it kinda happened. I still need to work on S2's mix - and, well, finish the season, but here's the stuff for S1. Everything from "Pastor" to "Heros."

And, yes, there are two Johnny Cash songs, but they're covers.

The Airborn Toxic Event ~ "All At Once"

We get old all at once
And it comes like a punch
In the gut, in the back, in the face
When it seems someone cried
And our parents have died
Then we hold onto each other in their place
And I feel the water risin' around us
Maybe that's okay
Yeah, I feel the world changin' all at once
I guess it'll be okay
Silversun Pickups ~ "Lazy Eye"

I've been waiting
I've been waiting for this moment all my life
But it's not quite right
Imagine Dragons ~ "It's Time"

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell
Nine Inch Nails ~ "Hurt"

Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you can have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
Liz Phair ~ "Perfect World"

I know the girls
That live inside your world
Just sitting next to a mortal makes their skin crawl
Muse ~ "Assassin"

War is overdue
The time has come for you
Mumford & Sons ~ "Awake My Soul"

In these bodies we will live
In these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love
You invest your life
Live ~ "I Walk The Line"

Because you're mine
I walk the line
Mona ~ "Trouble On The Way"

Ooh we got it all
Ooh we got it all
Ooh we got it all
There's trouble on the way
Muse ~ "Map of the Probelmatique"

Life will flash before my eyes
So scattered and lost
I want to touch the other side
Rise Against ~ "Help Is On The Way"

The crescent city sleeps,
While giants in the sky,
Preparing to unleash,
Let loose a mighty cry:
Can nobody save us?
Will anyone try?
Loreena McKennitt ~ "The Emigration Tunes" (Bonus)


  • Current Mood: artistic
  • Current Music: Loreena McKennitt "The Highwayman"
I have such an eclectic taste in music so I think I wont have too many problems. You should see my play list on My SPace and I;m still adding to it
I bet you have nothing on my brother. he *collects* music. He has everything from the glee soundtracks to death metal to country to disney to electronica on his computer. I think the last count was like 7 days worth of music, but I could be wrong. something riddiculous starting with 7 anyway
I have a couple of hundred cds and I tend to listen all sorts from Pink or Shania Twain to showtunes. Also Sarah McLachlan, Michael Buble, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Tania Opland and Michael Freeman are just a few. There are a few Muse and Train, I like at the moment although I could not tell you their titles because I only listen to them on the radio at work.

I am currently listening to Jesus Christ Superstar
I'm big into alternative music, if you can't tell. I've singer songwriters, and a weakness for soundtracks of all kinds. some old school rock - the things of my dad's that I grew up listening to and liked.

I think we had like 700 cds before we converted everything to digital. plus a whole bunch of records and 45s that we've not gotten around to converting yet.
I love the music - I think I'm going to download all the songs and save them to my ipod under a playlist.

Off to part two - I hope I like that one just as much!
