Monthly Mix :: February 2013 :: Forgotten or Lost  


February
Sand blankets are littered with stones whipped across
Dead things in the water, forgotten or lost



YOU CRY A TEAR TO START A RIVER - BETWEEN THE TREES
So you look into
You look into the water
And there you are
Just the way you left yourself
All alone
But lift your head
And look across the water
'Cause there you'll see
All of us together singing,
"Darling grab a hand
We promise not to let you stand alone"

CALGARY - BON IVER
Sold, I'm ever
Open ears and open eyes
Wake up to your starboard bride
Who goes in and then stays inside
Oh the demons come, they can subside

DISTURBIA - KINA GRANNIS
Faded pictures on the wall
It's like they talking to me
Disconnecting, no one calls
The phone don't even ring
I gotta get out or figure this out
It's too close for comfort, oh

I COULD BE NOTHING - GREAT LAKE SWIMMERS
Sand blankets are littered with stones whipped across
Dead things in the water, forgotten or lost
The branches have surfaced and now they are lean
The trees have washed up here
Stripped bare, and washed clean

THE GIANT OF ILLINOIS - ANDREW BIRD
The giant of Illinois died from a blister on his toe
After walking all day through the first winter snow
Throwing bits of stale bread to the last speckled doves
He never even felt his shoes fill with blood

Delirious with pain, his bedroom walls began to glow
And he felt himself soaring up through the falling snow
And the sky was a woman's arms

YOU REMIND ME OF HOME - BEN GIBBARD
You remind me of home
A broken bed with dirty sheets
That creaks when I am shifting in my sleep
You remind me of home
In a suburban town with nothing to do
Patiently waiting for something to happen

But the foundation is crumbling
And becoming one with the ground
While you lay there in slumber
You're wasting your life
Wasting your life

THE FEAR - BEN HOWARD
I've been worryin'
That my time is a little unclear
I've been worryin'
That I'm losing the ones I hold dear
I've been worryin'
That we all, live our lives, in the confines of fear
Oh I will become what I deserve

CALAMITY SONG - THE DECEMBERISTS
Petty greed
Queen of supply-side bonhomie bone-drab
You know what I mean
On the road
It's well advised that you follow your own bag
In the year of the chewable Ambien tab

And the Panamanian child
Stands at the Dowager Empress's side
And all that remains is the arms of the angel

HEART OF STONE - IKO
Can you keep a secret
Will you hold your hand
Among the flames

Honey you're a shipwreck
With your heart of stone

MARCH (A PRELUDE TO SPRING) - JON FOREMAN
We set out from home
Early one morning
We, my love and me
Walking along
We, birds and the bees
Trees of the forest
Started as one
Something went wrong
We ended alone

NIGHT BUS - LUCY ROSE
And she takes the night bus home
She's not phased by the darkness in her soul
And you barely catch a glimpse of her
'cause she's wrapped tightly, hiding in her clothes

"I'm not alone,"
She said "I'm not alone."

LOVE AFFAIR - NINA KINERT
Love affair strapped in the electric chair
My hands are tied
As we jump on another strike
Scratch my itch
The executioner pulls the switch
You won't feel a thing, no..
A part from a little sting

DO YOU HEAR THE PEOPLE SING? (REPRISE) - LES MISERABLES
Do you hear the people sing?
Lost in the valley of the night
It is the music of the people
Who are climbing to the light
For the wretched of the earth
There is a flame that never dies
Even the darkest night will end
And the sun will rise

ONE DAY MORE - LES MISERABLES
One day to a new beginning
Raise the flag of freedom high
Every man will be a king
Every man will be a king
There's a new world for the winning
There's a new world to be won
Do you hear the people sing?

Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in heaven has in store
One more dawn, one more day
One day more

ANNA - THE ROCKET SUMMER
I didn't know real pain until I fell down
I never knew how to swim until I nearly drowned
I didn't know relief until I broke down
Oh that was the best day...

Annabelle, we never chose the war
Will you choose to fight?

You can view the cover art here. It is included in the .zip.
If you like what you hear, please click the 'monthly mix' or 'fanmix' tag for more music! (Some links are down, but say the word, and I'll be more than happy to reupload for you ASAP!)

The RIAA dictates that all music downloaded should be removed after a preview period of twenty-four hours. What you do with it after that is your own responsibility.


Hey guys! I found this idea on tumblr -- basically, you beautiful people request a fandom, character, couple, or any general theme and I will make a mini 5-track fanmix based on that. All mixes will be posted in the next monthly mix post (which I promise will be next month, okay? no more skipping!)
Please request here in the comments or in my askbox. If you're requesting something fandom-related please keep it to one that I am also apart of (my tagslist is pretty much an a+ place to look for that stuff)

I miss them so much! Ryan is my all-time favorite Office character.
The hero of the story: The Little Mermaidcaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 05:11 am (UTC)
Mine too! Until season 5 when he got weird. The Office is hardly the same show anymore and it's devastating.
Dancing to a Symphonyglenvorian on February 27th, 2013 05:13 am (UTC)
:( I feel your pain, I haven't watched this season at all.
Dancing to a Symphonyglenvorian on February 27th, 2013 05:19 am (UTC)
By the way, did you hear Ellie Kemper landed another show?
The hero of the storycaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 05:51 am (UTC)
I've only seen a few episodes per season since season 6 started. So sad. :(

No, I hadn't, but that's awesome news! Do you know what it is?
Angela: Poldi SEXAY.angelalpev on February 26th, 2013 04:40 am (UTC)

I'm requesting: Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, especially for 5.13 ending.
The hero of the story: Real Tight Buttholecaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 05:06 am (UTC)
Hope you like it!

Ugh my darling Arthur I accept your request but I'm gonna be crying when I make it WHY that ending WHY
pkai: merlinarthurpkai7 on February 28th, 2013 05:50 am (UTC)
:( That last episode is still breaking my heart, I just thought if I'm going to be constantly reminded of that scene anyway I might as well have music as my company.

(What is the best way to keep track of when you update the request?)
The hero of the storycaptain_sarah on February 28th, 2013 06:35 am (UTC)
I'll be posting all the requests in next month's post! As long as you can keep updated on these mix posts, you'll be fine. Of course, if you're impatient, I can always upload the playlist onto 8tracks before that if you wish. :)

The hero of the story: Snow Whitecaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 05:07 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!! And thanks for requesting! :)
mandamoo♥blackrosesredxo on February 26th, 2013 02:05 pm (UTC)
I just saw Les Mis finally today and when I saw you had a new post, I was secretly hoping you would have songs from it - especially One Day More - and my day was just made twice - once by having a new mix from you and twice from it including Les Mis!

I would love a Pysch mini fan mix on Shawn and Gus!
The hero of the story: The Life Aquaticcaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 05:10 am (UTC)
Aw, I'm so happy to hear that! Isn't Les Mis fantastic?! I've been listening to the soundtrack constantly, it was hard not to put the entire soundtrack on here. Especially "Red and Black" and "In My Life/A Heart Full of Love". So good.

Thanks for requesting! So excited for the new season to begin tomorrow!
ivmiv: bog og teivmiv on February 27th, 2013 02:57 pm (UTC)
Grabbing. Thank you :)

I'm requesting: Sherlock (BBC), John/Sherlock
The hero of the storycaptain_sarah on February 27th, 2013 04:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you, I hope you like it!

Unfortunately I've never seen Sherlock and don't know much about it. As I've indicated, it's easier for me if you could please stick to fandoms I'm also apart of. Basically a big list of that is here. :)
