As Good As You've Been To This World - Dean/Castiel fanmix  
Because I obviously have a thing for making fanmixes after exams, or so it seems like. Real entry (or sort of) in a short while after I go buying groceries because the fridge is empty.

Title: As Good As You've Been To This World
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Type: Fanmix
For: nabichansaotome at the Dean/Castiel co-op swap exchange.
Prompt: cheerful/optimistic/loving fanmix.
Notes: Hee. So. These are all the Dean/Cas songs I have on my stuff-eligible-for-fanmixes notebook (yes, I have one) which are sorta happy. And there are two which have lyrics not exactly happy but I guarantee that they are very upbeat in return. ;) Hope you like it! ♥

ETA: the individual download links are expired (I'll try to change them at some point) but the comprehensive zip is available. :)

1. Tell Me Why - Neil Young

Tell me lies later,
come and see me
I'll be around for a while.
I am lonely but you can free me
All in the way that you smile
Tell me why, tell me why

2. The Times You've Come - Jackson Browne

Now everybody's gonna tell you it's not worth it
Everybody's gotta show you their own pain
You might try to find your way up around it
But the need for love will still remain

Now we're lying here
So safe in the ruins of our pleasures
Laughter marks the place where we have fallen
And our lives are near
So it wouldn't occur to us to wonder
Is this the past or the future that is calling

You know I've loved these times you've come.

3. All I Really Want To Do - The Byrds

I ain’t lookin’ to compete with you
Beat or cheat or mistreat you
Simplify you, classify you
Deny, defy, or crucify you
All I really want to do
Is baby be friends with you

No, I ain’t lookin’ to fight with you
Frighten you or tighten you
Drag you down or drain you down
Chain you down or bring you down
All I really want to do
Is baby be friends with you

4. As Good As You've Been To This World - Janis Joplin

As good as you've been to this world.
So good I wanna be right back to you.
As good as you've been now.
As good as you've been to this whole wide world (...)

Good as you've been babe,
'cause I'm just gonna show you now
And I'm just gonna make you want it now.
'cause I 'm just gonna give you a thrill

5. Numb As A Statue - Warren Zevon

I'm numb as a statue
I may have to beg, borrow or steal
Some feelings from you
So I can have some feelings too

I'm pale as a ghost
You know what I love about you
That's what I need the most

6. The Way I Choose - Bad Company

I live my life the way that i choose
I'm satisfied nothing to lose
I dont ask no favor i dont know the reason why
If i dont ask no questions i dont get no lies

Now you give your love tenderly
Every way that you move is closer to me
I dont need nobody to tell me the reason why
If i love only you baby oh no

7. Because The Night - Patti Smith

Have I doubt when I'm alone
Love is a ring, the telephone
Love is an angel disguised as lust
Here in our bed until the morning comes
Come on now try and understand
The way I feel under your command
Take my hand as the sun descends
They can't touch you now,
Can't touch you now, can't touch you now
Because the night belongs to lover

8. Out Of The Darkness - Little Steven

Out of the darkness and hand in hand
Baby together we will make our stand
Reach out and touch me we can win somehow
I know there's nothin' that can stop us now
Oh baby, come with me out of the darkness

I've lived my life trapped with trouble
Now it's time to make a new start
I thought the only justice in this world
Came from an angry heart
Now I know there's got to be love to protect us
But we can't wait for it to come
I know there's more to life than black and white
The sooner we learn, the sooner we've won

9. Would You Lie With Me (In A Field Of Stone) - Johnny Cash

Would you go away to another land?
Walk a thousand miles through the burning sand?
Wipe the blood away from my dying hand,
If I give myself to you?

Will you bathe me with me in the stream of life?
When the moon is full will you bathe with me?
Will you still love me when I'm down and out?
In my time of trial, will you stand by me?

10. Now They'll Sleep - Belly

Now eyes burn circles in the dark,
And when the mirror talks to me,
I listen with my heart
Kind of common cry,
Kind of common living lie
You know the shape my breath will take before I let it out.
Stand like you did when I was beauty-marked in your eyes

11. You're Not Alone - Richie Sambora

You can be a million miles away, I will always love you
You can be a thousand throught always, I'll be thinking of you
No matter where you try to hide, you will always gonna find me
Right where I belong, been here beside you all along
Like some ancient star forever we'll remain,
Even if the sky should ever fall from grace
If I die or fade away, in the end you'll always know
You're not alone (...)

These days the only saviour you can find is something you believe in
Deep inside your heart, you might believe in me

12. Bed Of Roses - Bon Jovi

With an ironclad fist I wake up and French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps its own beat in my head while we're talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and what you mean to me
And the truth is baby you're all that I need

I want to lay you on a bed of roses
For tonite I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses (...)

Tonite I won't be alone
But you know that don't
Mean I'm not lonely I've got nothing to prove
For it's you that I'd die to defend

13. I Want You - Bob Dylan

And the saviors who are fast asleep,
They wait for you
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin' from my broken cup
And ask me to open up the gate for you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you

14. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love - The Rolling Stones

Oh, sometimes I feel like
I feel a little sad inside
My baby mistreats me
And I kinda get a little little mad

I need you you you
To see me through, babe
When the sun go down
Ain't nobody else around
That's when I need you baby

15. I Will - The Beatles

And when at last I find you
Your song will fill the air
Sing it loud so I can hear you
Make it easy to be near you
For the things you do endear you to me
Oh, you know, I will

16. Patience - Guns n' Roses

Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you're in my heart now
Said woman take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience (...)

You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, Oh never break it
'Cause I can't take it

17. Thin Air - Pearl Jam

It's not in my past to presume
love can keep on moving in both directions
how to be happy and true is the quest we're taking on together
taking on, on, on, on, on...
there's a light when my baby's in my arms
and i know she's reached my heart, in thin air

18. You're Still Standin' There - Steve Earle and Lucinda Williams

I’ve spent my life following things I cannot see
And just when I catch up to them, they slip away from me
I’ve been down a thousand trails I’ve never walked before
I found out that without fail, they lead me to your door

And the world keep turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
And you’re still standin’ there

Lately I see all the signs, I feel it in the wind
The same thing happens every time that you come back again

19. At Your Most Beautiful - R.E.M.

You always say your name,
Like I wouldn't know it's you,
At your most beautiful

At my most beautiful
I count your eyelashes, secretly
With every one, whisper I love you
I let you sleep
I know you're closed eye watching me,
I thought I saw a smile

20. Drive All Night - Bruce Springsteen

When I lost you honey sometimes I think I lost my guts too
And I wish God would send me a word
send me something I'm afraid to lose
Lying in the heat of the night like prisoners all our lives
I get shivers down my spine and all I wanna do is hold you tight

There's machines and there's fire waiting on the edge of town
They're out there for hire but baby they can't hurt us now
Cause you've got, you've got, you've got,
you've got my love, you've got my love
Through the wind, through the rain, the snow, the wind, the rain
You've got, you've got my, my love, heart and soul

whole zip with covers here
feeling: lethargiccatatonic probably fits better

I mgiht have to download some of these...

also, this made me start to think about more songs to fit them XD
Looking for the correct lyrics to a song I found this. Seems quite fitting don't you think?

I put my hands where your wings should be,
I put my feet where the earth should be
And I can't see very far
And when you said that you were dead I hung on.

Oh and this of course

Someone I am
Is waiting for courage
The one I want
The one I will become
Will catch me

So let me fall
If I must fall
I won’t heed your warnings
I won’t hear them


You can hold me only
If you too will fall
Away from all these
Useless fears and chains

HA, are you into this stuff too?

That's pretty much AWESOME, lol. And go snag away! ;) ♥ And oh, the both of them fit so much! The second though re-links me to this post, who is that sings it? Because it's lovely!

Huge fan from tumblr with a shiny brand new livejournal account (lol, old one is at theubaz.livejournal.com - wanted a fresh start for writing).

So, I was just (being an obsessive fan of your work and creeping like I might on Misha Collins but please don't be worried as I'm totally harmless) sifting through your older posts and it got me wondering...

Were you ever planning on updating links or do you know where else I can get them? I love the rest of your mixes (and fiction too, btw - you have an amazing talent for words and feels, oh me, oh my) and I can't bear to miss out on any more destiel feels XD

If not, no problemo. Just curious and was having trouble downloading the songs individually and piecemeal (can't find all of them, etc etc etc). I hope your life is amazing and you become a famous rockstar author one day <3

My tumblr is at awesomeconklin as well, if it's easier for you to respond there.
Thanks! xo!
the female ghost of tom joad: ILUjanie_tangerine on September 18th, 2012 07:54 am (UTC)
Hi there! *waves* and pff don't worry about the creeping, that's perfectly acceptable ;) (and thanks by the way *flattered*)

Also oops, the thing is that when I upload a mix I tend to forget that the links expire and if someone doesn't remind me to do it I totally don't remember about it /o\ but I suppose I can go through these and see what expired, I still have the zips and everything anyway so it's not a problem to re-upload them. I'm going to shoot you another reply when I'm done ;) and haha I wish I became a famous rockstar author ;) thanks for the wishes, let's hope it happens xD <3
