SO. Arthur/Merlin mini-mix. I've had this stewing in my cellphone for some time now, except all I really did was idly add songs to the list every now and then and promptly forget about it. I ended up crossing off a lot of songs from the mix - decided to stick with canon era, etc - and what's left behind is some lazy song choices, ahaha. Comments would be really lovely, considering how I made most of the cover art in one sitting and need something shiny to look at (LMAO SELF). And now I want to do a mix for the ~bad guys~ and the fic (with fic recs for each track, y/y), but my sense of productivity has a short attention span, so I'm just going to leave this here, ok.

TRACKLIST
01 Keane, "Frog Prince"
02 Flight of the Conchords, "Friends"
03 Patrick Wolf, "The Stars"
04 The National, "Terrible Love"
05 Vienna Teng, "Nothing Without You"
06 The Boy Least Likely To, "A Fairytale Ending"
07 Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, "Howl At The Moon"
08 Jose Gonzales, "Heartbeats"
09 Stars, "My Favourite Book"
10 Regina Spektor, "The Call"




01 Keane, "Frog Prince" (download mp3)
All promises broken / Feed your people or lose your throne / And forfeit your whole kingdom

Soon, someone will put a spell on you / Perfume, treasure, sorcery, every trick they know




02 Flight of the Conchords, "Friends" (download mp3)
Friends help you when you're in danger / Friends are people who are not strangers / Friends help you shift into a new place / Tell you if you've got food on you're face

Friends are the ones, on who you can depend
"He's my friend."
"He's not my friend."



03 Patrick Wolf, "The Stars" (download mp3)
So now to the one with the never-ending / And the invisible scarves



04 The National, "Terrible Love" (download mp3))
But I won’t follow you into the rabbit hole / Last night I woke but then I saw / The ship of those that didn’t want me to

It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders





05 Vienna Teng "Nothing Without You" (download mp3)
All my books are lying useless now, all my maps will only show me how to lose my way
Oh call my name, you know my name / And in that sound, everything will change / Tell me it won't always be this hard / I am nothing without you, but I don't know who you are




06 The Boy Least Likely To, "A Fairytale Ending" (download mp3)
I find it difficult to be myself / So I pretend / To be something I’m not / But in the end everything has to / Turn back into pumpkins and frogs / I wish that it didn’t have to



07 Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers "Howl At The Moon" (download mp3)
"What's wrong?" i think you asked me
"Nothing," i probably said


We both do a lot and we do nothing too / Every day is more than just a list to get through


08 Jose Gonzales "Heartbeats" (download mp3)
To call for hands above to lean on / wouldn't be good enough for me, no
One night of magic rush / the start of simple touch / one night of push and scream / and then relief / ten days of perfect tunes / the colors red and blue / we had a promise made / we were in love




09 Stars, "My Favourite Book" (download .m4a)
You can make my bed, I'll fall into it / Shattered but not lonely / 'Cause I never knew a home / Until I found your hands / And when I'm withered / You come to me, you're my best friend



10 Regina Spektor "The Call" (download mp3)
And then that word grew louder and louder / 'Til it was a battle cry / I'll come back when you call me / No need to say goodbye
Just because everything's changing / Doesn't mean it's never been this way before / All you can do is try to know who your friends are / As you head off to the war

Thank you very much! You know, I was feeling pretty sparkly and all LET'S DO THIS when I began this. And then my attention span hurled itself down the window and left me to fend for myself.

Thank you! "Nothing Without You" is the heart of this mix, really. Vienna Teng writes the most beautiful and poetic lyrics ♥ ♥

Haha, I'm uploading the individual links, but it's going to take a while, apparently. Also, I am ashamed to admit that I haven't watched any of the Narnia movies (and I only ever got to watch the first 2 movies of Harry Potter *lives under a rock*)! Which is a shame, because the soundtracks are really lovely ♥

Thank you! And I love your icon. I miss that Arthur.

I'm really new to the Merlin fandom and I found this. I was listening to this during a road trip and it definitely gave me some inspiration!

Very pretty song mix! A lot of the songs were just so sweet, I love it!

Re: <3
Thank you so much! I mean, wow. That really means a lot. This fandom has put out a number of beautiful mixes (I can link you to them if you like) and transformed my iPod, I may have given up and just made Arthur/Merlin a own genre of its own. XD

Thank you! I find the best way to enjoy music is to experience it in some sort of context. I've downloaded a couple of really powerful Arthur/Merlin mixes that have me so (emotionally) attached to the songs, and I'm so glad I have a similar effect on others *spreading the love* ♥

This is great! The graphic for track one is lovely and I think track four is very telling of their relationship.
That Vienna Teng song for track five is great and works really well lyrically with the pair and graphic. And number nine is so intimate. <333

Tbh I had a little crisis between #9 and another Stars song that goes I'm trying what I'm trying to say / without saying I love you, but My Favourite Book won because of the whole thing with books, making beds and hands, so I guess I'm saving the other song for another mix or smth. XD (#4 was an accidental thing, only because I had The National's High Violet album on while working on this, lol.)

Anyway, thank you! I am seriously all sparkly and giddy that I'm not the only one who sees Merlin/Arthur in these songs. Mission accomplished! 8D
