[mixin it up]

okay, so two of my very good friends introduced me to Escaflowne just a few weeks ago. it is basically their favourite anime, and they made me love it too :)

anywho, their anniversary is in two more weeks. so i'm making them Esca-fabulous giftbags. in addition to mystery mech trading figures from Mugen Toys, i decided to also do a mixtape for each of them of their fave esca characters.

so here is where i need your help.

for C, i'm doing a Van mix. general, not a specific ship or anything, nor am i asking for any specific genre of music, because they seem to like pretty much everything. i have quite a library, but it's been awhile since i've made a fanmix, so i'm looking for suggestions. thing is, it's getting a little (ok, a LOT) van/hitomi shippy, and i don't want it to be JUST that, so help there would be awesome.

what i have so far:
  • "Closer to You" by the Wallflowers
  • "All Good Things" by Nelly Furtado
  • "Hoper" by Stand (for i've been afraid, it's all beneath the cuts, and when i lost my way, you brought me 'round)
  • "Little Victories" by Matt Nathanson (and i'll be awful sometimes, weakened to my knees, but i'll learn to get by with little victories)
  • "Heroes" by David Bowie (is this too "happy ending"?)

and for N, i'm doing a Folken mix. again, anything goes. and there's no guarantee that what i produce now will make the final cut, as i always end up with like, thirty songs i love, and pare it down to about 10-14, based on musical flavor if i can't make myself pare down enough just crossing off ones that are "sorta"

what i have so far:
  • "Otherside" by Red Hot Chili Peppers
  • "Tinfoil Star" by Jet Set Satellite (found my courage now, i'm finally face to face with it...no second chance would ever come along...)
  • "Stockholm Syndrome" by Muse
  • "Eyes, Radio, Lies" by Orgy
  • "Bright End of Nowhere" by Matthew Good
  • "No Bravery" by James Blunt
  • "Can't Make It Good" by Raine Maida & Chantal K. (i'm afraid i sink deeper deeper, i'm sick of these tendencies. i know i just can't make it good, but if i could show you the world and the way i think it should turn... this is perhaps folken's song for his brother at the end?)

and may i share that the perfect van/hitomi song is "the goodbye girl" by bread?

all your life you've waited for love to come and stay,
and now that i have found you, you must not slip away.
i know it's hard believing the words you've heard before
but darling you must trust them just once more
cos baby a goodbye doesn't mean forever
let me tell you goodbye doesn't mean we'll never be together again
if you wake up and i'm not there, i won't be long away
cos the things you do, my goodbye girl, will bring me back to you.
i know you've been taken, afraid to hurt again
you fight the love you feel for me, instead of giving in
but i can wait forever, helping you to see that i was meant for you and you for me.
so remember a goodbye doesn't mean forever
let me tell you goodbye doesn't mean we'll never be together again
though we may be so far apart, you still will have my heart
so forget your past, my goodbye girl, now you're home at last.

okay. that's what i've got. help me? as you can see, i've got a canvas, and a few colours, but not enough to create the masterpieces yet :)
