1. it feels like christmas - ‘muppet christmas carol’ soundtrack {north}

wherever you find love, it feels like christmas.

2. to the fairies they draw near, part II - loreena mckennitt, ‘tinker bell’ soundtrack [toothiana}

come away with me now to the sky, up o’er the hills and the sea / far beyond where memories lie, to a place where i’m free to be me.

3. hoppípolla - sigur rós {bunnymund}

spinning in circles / holding hands / jumping into a puddle (and i get a nosebleed / but i’ll always stand up again)

4. dreaming - ‘coraline’ soundtrack [sandman}


5. permafrost - loreena mckennitt {jack}

sometimes i feel like i’m permafrost / alone in the tundra and really lost

6. mad tom of bedlam (robber’s ball remix) - charlene kaye {pitch}

tonight i’ll go a-murdering the man in the moon to a powder / his staff i’ll break and his dog i’ll shake and i’ll howl a wee bit louder

7. team - bon iver


8. near light - ólafur arnalds


9. timshel - mumford & sons

and you are not alone in this / as brothers we will stand and we’ll hold your hand

10. the year turns round again - ‘war horse’ london cast recording

there will come a time of great plenty, a time of good harvest and song / the new year will rise up again

11. rainbow sleeves - julia murney

and the heart keeps young dreams (or i’ve been told) / to keep from ever growing old / just hang on to my rainbow sleeves


for ghosty

This was originally going to be just a dumb little playlist about a certain moronic metalball, but it ended up somewhat shippy. It focuses on the end of Portal 2.

Listen: [8tracks] [Spotify]

Unintended | Muse

First there was the one who challenged / All my dreams and all my balance / She could never be as good as you

Spaceman | The Killers

You know that I was hoping, / That I could leave this star-crossed world behind / But when they cut me open, / I guess I changed my mind.

No Light No Light | Florence + the Machine

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes / I never knew daylight could be so violent

A Rush Of Blood To The Head | Coldplay

I’m gonna buy this place and see it burn / And do back the things it did to you in return

This Ain’t Goodbye | Train

You and I, we’re friends from outer space / Afraid to let go / The only two who understood this place

Fear and Loathing | Marina and the Diamonds

And now I see, I see it for the first time, / There is no crime in being kind / Not everyone is out to screw you over.

You Were a Kindness | The National

There’s a radiant darkness upon us / But I don’t want you to worry / I was careful but nothing is harmless

Beam Me Up | P!nk

In my head, I see your baby blues / I hear your voice and I, I break in two and now there’s / One of me, with you

Goodnight, Travel Well | The Killers

To cast my shadow by the holy sun / My spirit moans with a sacred pain / And it’s quiet now / The universe is standing still

Spaaaaace | Aperture Science Psychoacoustic Laboratories

Dear fanmix makers,

A lot of people are scared these days after megaupload went down, no one wants to get in trouble for hosting music. I took my own downloads down from mediafire for stupid politics reasons- but I’m trying to put mine back up (somewhere else) because all of these mixes with youtube links are getting on my nerves too. If I hadn’t been able to download fanmixes I wouldn’t have, like, half of my favorite music today.

what's in the hold of your mind? | clareironbrook | 8tracks

Just a reminder that all of my fanmixes are now exclusively on 8tracks. :)

(I actually really like the interface there, besides that you can’t see all the tracks at once. It makes it nice and pretty without me having to work at it, and I can edit my mixes whenever, which I kind of want to do upon revisiting them all for uploading.)

earth is not a cold dead place.: come back.


a sort-of fanmix for glados and chell. this is a fully instrumental mix. i may do one with vocal tracks later, but that’s tougher, so we’ll see…
