enamoured: Captain America: ...and I will write you a tragedy. (show me a hero)
[personal profile] enamoured posting in [community profile] brandnewsoul
"in some ways captain america is a makeover movie in where the makeover makes you a hero but you realise you were a hero all along and the girl you thought liked you bc of the makeover liked you all along but you had to go and save the world and missed your date by like 70 years". (quote)

The recipient of said makeover is one Steve Rogers, a scrappy little guy with a heart of gold from Brooklyn who is made into a super-enhanced guy (heart of gold still there), and the girl is Peggy Carter, a take-no-shit British agent who believes in him. Spoiler alert: they don't end up together. (Steve ends up getting frozen in time for a few decades, Peggy still lives on and has a life without him--and we might get to see some of her awesome adventures if that TV series comes to fruition!) But A.) what canonical time they spend together is lovely, and B.) fan fiction. All the fan fiction. (As far as I'm concerned, this happened and you cannot take that away from me, OKAY)

Anyway! The mix. "My Heart With You" has been on my "put this in a Steve/Peggy mix" list since I first saw the damn movie. I wanted it to have a softer sound, but I also really wanted to have "All the Pretty Girls" by fun. on it, because it seemed like such a great Steve POV song, but it's too damn bouncy, sigh. I think it still works without the rest, though!


Hand Covers Bruise, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

City, Sara Bareilles
It's clear this conversation ain't doing a thing
'Cause these boys only listen to me when I sing
And I don't feel like singing tonight
The same sad song

Nobody Does it Better, 8mm
And nobody does it better
Though sometimes I wish someone could
Nobody does it quite the way you do
Why'd you have to be so good?

Everybody Here Wants You, Jeff Buckley
Don't you see, don't you see?
You're just the torch to put the flame to all our guilt and shame
And I'll rise like an ember in your name

The Way You Look Tonight, Tony Bennett
Lovely, never, never change
Keep that breathless charm
Won't you please arrange it?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight

Maps, Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Pack up
Don't stray
Oh, say say say
Oh, say say say
Wait! They don't love you like I love you

'Til Kingdom Come, Coldplay
For you, I'd wait 'til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you'll come, and set me free
Just say you'll wait, you'll wait for me

As Time Goes By, Frank Sinatra
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die

My Heart With You, The Rescues
A tattered photograph my pocket holds
I keep you secretly
I've studied every line
You're etched upon my mind
for not a million soldiers could take you from me

Starlight, Michael Buble
Sometimes I wonder why I spend
The lonely night dreaming of a song
The melody haunts my reverie
And I am once again with you
When our love was new
And each kiss an inspiration
But that was long ago
And now my consolation
Is in the stardust of a song

So I grabbed this mix awhile ago, but RL consumed me and I didn't listen to it until yesterday when we were making plans to go see The Winter Soldier.

I just want to say My Heart With You, The Rescues is PERFECT and hurty and damn near makes me cry.

WELL DONE. This mix is just really well constructed. I feel your pain on not being able to use your other song. Someday, someone will do a full rock and less pop version of Maroon 5's Harder To Breathe. But in the meantime I'm left whining, "But listen to the lyrics! It fits so well! It's so dark!" and then rant about upbeat pop music.

You got a brand new soul, and a cross of gold.
