I have to admit that this fanmix was heavily inspired by a massive intake of fanfiction over a very short period of time. Specifically, The more things change, Shell Game, (and anything else written by otherhawk), By the Book, Sleeping Habits, and I've been reading Spirit and Dust while doing the finishing touches.
The songs are supposed to go in a sort of chronological order. From 'Bruises' to 'Say' is early Danny/Rusty, 'Relief Next to Me' transitions it into Danny in prison (pre-movies), 'Stay Beautiful' to 'Paper Planes' is supposed to be movie canon, and 'Sway' to 'Life is a Highway' is supposed to be a post-movies/romantic possibility type vibe.
Each song is uploaded individually to box.net, and the .zip (which includes the covers) is uploaded to megaupload.com. :3
Every Time I Fell
A Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan Fanmix
Bruises | Chairlift
I tried to do handstands for you
I tried to do headstands for you
Every time I fell on you yeah every time I fell
I tried to do handstands but every time I fell for you
I'm permanently black and blue, permanently blue for
Read My Mind | The Killers
I never really gave up on
Breakin' out of this two-star town.
I got the green light,
I got a little fight.
I'm gonna turn this thing around.
Can you read my mind?
My Superman | Santogold
Make it fly
Bless your soul
You get by
Take me along
But all the static here it's tearing you a-part
You can't help the way you , you , you , you
You are my
Say (All I Need) | OneRepublic
I said all I need
Is the air I breathe
And a place to rest
Whenever the end is
Do you think you can see it?
Well, until you get there
Go on, go ahead and scream it
Just say it
Relief Next to Me | Tegan & Sara
I'll tell you now,
I guess like I should have told you then.
That thunder moves like damn drawers slamming in my frame,
Slamming in my framework.
I can't untangle
What I feel and what should matter most.
I can't close an eye, can't close an eyelid.
Now there's just no point in reaching out for you.
Oh Lately It’s So Quiet | OK Go
Oh lately it's so quiet in this place
You’re not 'round every corner
Oh lately it's so quiet in this place
So darlin' if your not here haunting me
Whose house, are you haunting tonight?
Aw. Whose sheets you twist
Aw. Whose face you kiss
Whose house are you haunting tonight?
Remember Me As a Time of Day | Explosions in the Sky
Stay Beautiful | The Last Goodnight
Post cards, throwing darts, side kicks and super marts
Break dance, second chance, I will run to you
Sideways, back and forth, wake up, hit the floor
Oh no, where'd you go, I will come to you
One more, day like this
One more, poison kiss
One more, hand to fist
I will run to you
Always, first in line
Always, on my mind
Always, doing fine
I will come to you
Nature of the Experiment | Tokyo Police Club
We're halfway up the bracket
The rain comes through my jacket
It's not the stones inside my shoes
It's not the risk of what's to lose
It's an ancient Russian proverb
But I doubt it's ones that you've heard
It's not the cracks beneath the floor
It's not the fact that it's a chore
Paper Planes | M.I.A.
Pirate skulls and bones
Sticks and stones and weed and bones
Running when we hit 'em
Lethal poison for their system
No one on the corner has swagga like us
Hit me on my banner prepaid wireless
We pack and deliver like UPS trucks
Already going hard just pumping that gas
Sway | Michael Buble
I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
Little Bit of Feel Good | Jamie Lidell
Just a look of those eyes, cutting through my smokey skies
And the parts of me that grow from you
Cleared my vision so that I could see
Just the smell of you hair follows me everywhere
Your sweet alchemy turned trouble to gold
Transforming it all to let me know
Strawberry Blonde | The Subways
You're the matador and I'm the bull
You're the brass key hole I fit into
You're the wind and I'm the weathervane
You're the strawberry blonde and I'm the grey
You're the light and I am the firefly
You're the star and I am the blackened sky
Life is a Highway | Rascal Flats
Through all these cities and all these towns
It's in my blood and it's all around
I love you now like I loved you then
This is the road and these are the hands
From Mozambique to those Memphis nights
The Khyber Pass to Vancouver's lights
Knock me down get back up again
You're in my blood
I'm not a lonely man
There's no load I can't hold
Road so rough this I know
I'll be there when the light comes in
Just tell 'em we're survivors
Life is a highway
I wanna ride it all night long
If you're going my way
I wanna drive it all night long
