Author's Notes: I knew to expect something good when I saw who claimed me, but this mix really blew me away. The songs xoxxblitz7 chose are so beautifully relevant and tap into the emotions and events of the story in such a gorgeous way - she's obviously put a lot of thought into this mix and I'm SO appreciative. I've had it on my iPod since the day I got it!
From P!nk's Raise Your Glass, which really embraces the fun spirit of the guys at the hotel party, to Joan Jett's Bad Reputation (which I can't help attributing to Frankie and Gee and their political statements) this mix rocks hard. I had never heard the Brand New cover of Kiss Me before and it's so fucking perfect for the scene in the hotel room it HURTS.
There's so many awesome bands on here like Murderdolls, The Killers and The fucking Cure! Mister Brightside works SO well for the scene between the buses, and seriously - shortcut to my heart putting a Cure song on this mix, Robert Smith gives me so many feelings at the best of times. Let's Go To Bed is SO perfect for the sexytimes and Jaws Themes Swimming just FEELS like the dust storm to me. Alanis Morisette's Head Over Feet, god it just stole my heart - it works SO hard for Mikey and Ray's relationship, it's like THEIR SONG, you know?
I saved The Used's Earthquake for a final mention because GOD what a perfect song. So much longing, the way it fits with the sudden attack AND with the worry and separation and it's just RAY all over. Cause baby I'm not all right when you go / I'm not fine, Please be all mine. Perfect song, perfect title, simply AWESOME mix.
Thank you SO MUCH Holl, this is GORGEOUS.
