(epic) fanmix: And I Ain't Got No Halo Hanging Over My Head, or the uber Bon Jovi Dean/Castiel mix  
Okay, this is the crazy mix and the last spamming for today. It probably shows my degree of obsession.

: And I Ain't Got No Halo Hanging Over My Head
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Type: double fanmix
Warnings: I think that statistically the most recurring word in the lyrics is baby. I warned you.
Notes: this is my last contribution for dc_fireplace. It's 30 songs, all either Bon Jovi or solo Jon Bon Jovi and/or Richie Sambora. You can either blame this on me (because BJ is my favorite group and Dean can say all he wants, they're awesome) or on the two/three people who know who they are and totally didn't try to dissuade me. Thanks to _izu_ who gave me a hand with the pink sparkly cover and its pixel issues.
Notes part II: The first part is mostly serious songs (yeah, BJ can do serious ;) ), the second is utterly unrepentant cheesy songs which, imo, fit the pairing in spite of the cheese (or maybe also because of it). Goes unsaid: the second part and the first cover should probably not be taken too seriously. ;) Enjoy!
Notes part III: okay, this is the last thing. I have a bunch of demos in here but one, Backdoor To Heaven, is the only one never officially released so while the quality is good for being a demo it might be lower than the others; each final song in each part is a live cover because I thought it was neat. This probably lacks uber-famous songs with a few exceptions. And you've been spared most of the hair metal. Okay, that's definitely it. ;)

Part I: Give Me Something For The Blues (or, the seriousbusiness side A):

1. Temptation

Temptation, go home, Lord
I'm walking straight into the ocean
Tell the tide I'm on my way
I'm gonna hang my head down tonight on Damocles' sword

Twist my wrist
Tell me I should resist
But the flesh is weak

2. If I Was Your Mother

Oh baby, I got to get that close to you

Tell me what I got to do
To make my life mean more to you
I could get so close it's true
If I was yours

Tell me what I got to be
To make you a part of me
There's no one else you'd ever need
If I was your mother

3. I Want You

And I worked so hard seven days a week
And built a fortress for your heart to keep
If I could I'd wrap these words up for you

I never wanted the stars
I never shot for the moon
I like them right where they are
All I wanted was you
So baby just turn away
Because I can't face the truth
All I'm trying to say
Is all I wanted was you

4. Satellite

Are you out there? Can you hear me?
Do you know my whereabouts? Do you know what I'm all about?
Through the static you're so close, so far away
Are you listening? I'm desperate
Sendin' out an S.O.S.
'Cause I'm lost I must confess
Throw a lifeline, I'm down here drownin'
In the deepest part of me

Satellite, can you feel me?
Satellite, come and heal me
Are you watchin' over me tonight?
I need to know you're out there

5. If That's What It Takes

Yeah, I know that you've been shattered
You been bruised
We both know what it feels like when you lose
But I'd bet my life on a roll of the dice for you

If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do
Tonite's the night, I'm gonna prove it to you
Do I have to break down, baby just to break through
If that's what it takes, that's what I'd do

6. Starting All Over Again

Tonight, we'll be starting all over again,
And it feels like the first time, I..
No I'll never feel this way again.
Starting all over again

Do you remember, remember the odds we were given,
We had nothing and we thought that was living,
Lord and it's been such a long, long road

7. I Am

It seems you always wait for life to happen
And your last buck can't buy a lucky break
If all we've got is us then lifes worth living
And if you're in, you know I'm in, I'm ready and I'm willing

I am, when you think that no-one needs you, sees you or believes you
No ones there to understand
I am, I'll be there to be that someone
When you think that no one, is there to hold your hand, I am (...)

And I aint got no halo hanging over my head
I aint gonna judge you, I'm just here to love you

8. Something For The Pain

Happiness, it's been no friend to me
But forever after ain't what it's all cracked up to be (...)

Give me something for the pain, give me something for the blues
Give me something for the pain when I feel I've been danglin' from a hang-man's noose
Give me something for the pain, give me something I can use
To get me through the night, make me feel all right, something like you

Pull me under (help I'm falling)
Run through my veins (night is calling)
To a place (feels like I'm flying)
Where I feel no pain (Christ - I'm dying)
Be the pillow under my head
Give me cover when I'm in my bed
Take me higher than I've ever been
Take me down and back again
Come to me, be my disguise
Open your coat, let me crawl inside

9. Lie To Me

I ain't too proud of all the struggles
And the hard times we've been through
When this cold world comes between us
Please tell me you'll be brave
'Cause I can realize the danger when forgiveness fades away

If you don't love me - lie to me
'Cause baby you're the one thing I believe
Let it all fall down around us, if that's what's meant to be
Right now if you don't love me baby - lie to me

10. Bed Of Roses

Well I'm so far away that each step that I take is on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes I'd given each night
Just to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time or it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes and whisper, baby blind love is true

I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on a bed of roses

Now as you close your eyes know I'll be thinking about you (...)
Tonight 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

11. Too Much Of A Good Thing

You are my strongest weakness
And I don't want nothing else
You got the fix I'm looking for
Too much of a good thing will turn your whole world upside down

12. Letter To A Friend

You know that I'll be there to understand
When you call me on the phone
I'll be there to watch you when you sleep
When you close your eyes at night
And I'll be there to keep your secrets kept,
Cross my heart, hope to die (...)

Nobody wants you like I want you
Nobody needs you like I need you
You know I would beg and plead, get down on my knees
I'd do most anything, it's true
But I ain't gonna love you
I ain't gonna love you
'Cause I love you

bonus tracks

13. Hard Times Come Easy (Richie Sambora)

Round and round we go
Sometimes it feels like
We're on a roller coaster ride
Baby don't you know, it could eat you up
If you try to keep it all inside

Seems like hard times come easy
We do a lot of hanging on these days
But the heart finds a reason
And love always seems to find a way
Even if it hurts

14. Miracle (Jon Bon Jovi)

A penny for your thoughts now baby
Looks like the weight of the world's
On your shoulders now (...)

And you said it ain't fair that a man walks when a bird can fly
We have to kick the ground, the stars kiss the sky
They say that spirits live, a man has to die
They promised us truth, now they're giving us lies

Gonna take a miracle to save us this time
And your savior has just left town
Gonna need a miracle, 'cause it's all on the line
And I won't let you down (...)

Still I'll look you in the eye
'Cause I've believed in things I've thought
And I'll die without regret
For the wars that I have fought

15. Hallelujah [originally Leonard Cohen but they're covering the Jeff Buckley version]

Baby I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor, you know
I used to live alone before I knew you
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch and love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah

Part II: You're My Backdoor To Heaven (or, CHEESE AHEAD!!!)

1. Superman Tonight

There's something about you I want to rescue
I don't even know you so what does that mean

Maybe I'm cynical, I'm painfully logical
You're tragic and beautiful and that's good enough for me (...)

Tonight I swear I'd sell my soul to be a hero for you

Who's going to save you when the stars fall from your sky
And who's going to pull you in when the tide gets too high
Who's going to hold you when you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I could be your superman tonight

2. Open All Night

It aches, it breaks, it takes your breath away
I've been around that block a time or two

Baby, I don't want to fall in love with you
I try, try, try but I can't get around the truth
Please don't say my name, give this heart a break
I don't want to make the same mistake but it's too late
I'll leave on the light
These arms are open all night

3. Love Me Back To Life

Tonight I need you more than yesterday
Tonight I need you

Take me, touch me, hold me like you mean it
Make me come alive
Hurt me, heal me, come and make me feel it, rescue me tonight
Love me back to life

These days I'd trade sight for feeling
There are days my feeling's gone
Can't figure out whose life I'm living, I don't know right from wrong

When I lost my faith you found it and gave it back to me
There's a new light on your halo; it took blind eyes to see

4. Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore (featuring Leann Rimes)

It might be hard to be lovers
But it's harder to be friends
Baby, pull down the covers
It's time you let me in
Maybe light a couple candles
I'll just go ahead and lock the door
If you just talk to me baby
Till we ain't strangers anymore (..)

Sometimes it's hard to love me
Sometimes it's hard to love you too
I know it's hard believing
That love can pull us through

5. Maybe Someday

And I would give up tomorrow
And die for one yesterday
I'd lie, beg, steal and borrow
To hear you whisper my name
Tonight there ain't no miracles
Washing up on this beach
The angels left here long ago
But I still believe that

Maybe someday I will hold your hand
and maybe someway we'll trace our footsteps in the sand
And just walk away

6. Backdoor To Heaven

Well, now we're alone, my heart's in your hands.
I need someone to love, can't I be your friend? (...)

I know you're an angel you just never have, never flown before
I'm in the dark, wont you give me some light now

You've got me begging on my knees
Won't you let me in, let me in, let me in
The backdoor to heaven is in your arms tonight
You're my backdoor to heaven
Won't you let me in, let me in, let me in

7. Born To Be My Baby (acoustic version)

If we stand side by side (all night)
There's a chance we'll get by (and it's alright)
And I'll know that you'll be live
In my heart till the day that I die

'Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man
We got something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the reasons
But I bet he must have had a plan
Cause you were born to be my baby
And baby, I was made to be your man

8. Gotta Have A Reason

We all know love is lost for lesser things
And the angels here have broken wings (..)

You gotta have a reason
A reason to believe
A reason just to dream
Sometimes it takes blind eyes to see
A reason to believe

A hot-headed hero, here you see I'm just a man
Comes a time, a time to make a stand

9. Hush

I said nothing
Sometimes so little said is something
There's ten things I could've said that fit
But we don't waste time on that shit
That's how we rise above it

But she don't talk about love
And we don't talk too much
What we don't say with words
We say when we touch

10. These Open Arms

What if everything you always took for granted, was gone?
And everything you ever thought was right, was wrong?
And what if everyone you ever loved was torn, from the pages of your life?
Would you reach out for tomorrow, or try to turn back time?

11. Thank You For Loving Me (yes, I went there)

You pick me up when I fall down
You ring the bell before they count me out
If I was drowning you would part the sea
And risk your own life to rescue me

12. Save The World

I never went to college, I don't have a degree
Let's say I went to night school, I learned all I know on the streets (...)

I got to confess, sometimes I'm a mess
And sometimes I step out of line
Like this old tattoo, I ain't shiny or new
With you by my side nothing matters

I can save the world
Since the night your love saved me
Maybe I can't save the world
But as long as you believe
Maybe I can save the world

bonus tracks

13. All That Really Matters (Richie Sambora)

You'll always be my sweet addiction
in this life my saving grace
you're all that really matters
you know it's true

14. Ugly (Jon Bon Jovi)

If you're ugly, I'm ugly too
In your eyes the sky's a different blue
If you could see yourself like others do
You'd wish you were as beautiful as you

And I wish I was a camera sometimes
So, I could take your picture with my mind
Put it in a frame for you to see
How beautiful you really are to me

15. Have A Little Faith In Me [originally Joe Cocker]

When your secret heart
Cannot speak so easily
Come here darling, from a whisper start
To have a Little faith in me

And when your back's against the wall
Just turn around and you, you will see
I will catch you, I will catch your fall baby
Just have a Little faith in me

zip with both parts + covers

JFC this was hard. Okay. I'm really done. *cough*

LOL, then it'll be waiting to reward you when you're done. ;) But ha, considering that you totally didn't dissuade me knowing that you like it is indeed awesome :DDD

(and yes, I made it and I totally went overboard but I can't do otherwise. Not when it's BJ related anyway. ;) ) <3333333333

Hey, it's not embarrassing! I have the singles too, and while my pre 2000 collection of singles is thin I bought all the releases from 2000 onward, and I'm kinda proud of it. Except when people look at me like I should be embarrassd. ;) You can never have too much JBJ in your life indeed, and thank you so much! I'm very glad it fit the bill for you. ;) ;)

OMG, YAY! I love Bon Jovi, so I am downloading this like mad.
Thanks for sharing!

\o/ Yay for BJ appreciation! ;) One can't ever have enough, right? Thank you, glad you liked it! <3
Lou: special hellgottalovev on March 10th, 2010 01:41 am (UTC)
you're cute, you know that? I really like how dedicated you are, to the pairing enough to make 2 mixes (3 with the one from earlier, that I took too once at home) and also to Bon Jovi. I took this with much thanks =D
the female ghost of tom joad: BJ rules and it's a factjanie_tangerine on March 10th, 2010 05:33 pm (UTC)
Ha, in my defense I hadn't planned this one, it just was the fic and the other fanmix, then I had the idea and I was like hell, let's just go with it. And I think that I just needed to find a ship which actually is alive and interacting, I can't go back now. ;) Also, I aim to please, so I'm really glad you liked it. ;) Thank you!

(And well, I've been obsessed with BJ for about ten years. At this point I can't even try to help it. *cough*)

JSYK, that's probably because it is. Also, I'm head over heels in love with the covers - again.
