Subject: Laura Roslin/William Adama
Title: My Ain True Love
Warnings: Spoilers abound.
Notes: A mix in three parts; hers, his, and "hell, these songs remind me of them and I want them on there somewhere but I can't find a place to fit them--aw, screw it, I'll just make an extra mix."
This is part one, or her mix. Part two is here, part three is here.
My Ain True Love
Part I: Ocean City Girl
1) The Girl With The Weight Of The World in Her Hands, The Indigo Girls
'Cause we're busy with our happiness
And busy with our plans
I wonder if alone she wants it
Taken from her hands
But if things didn't keep getting harder
She might miss her sacred chance
To go a consecrated martyr
The girl with the weight
Of the world in her hands
I think this could be Laura Roslin's theme.
2) Dance of the Robe, AIDA
It's knowing what they want of me that scares me
It's knowing having followed that I must lead
It's knowing that each person there compares me
To those in my past whom I now succeed
But how can whatever I do for them now
The minseries. I'm not crazy. This makes sense. Right? Right!?
3) I Hope That I Don't Fall In Love With You, Emiliana Torrini
I hope that I don't fall in love with you.
I can see that you are lonesome, just like me.
And it being late, you'd like some company.
Well, I turn around to look at you, and you look back at me.
The guy you're with has up and split, the chair next to you is free.
And I hope that you don't fall in love with me.
4) The Golden Path, Dune
The military coup and mutiny.
5) The Rooftop, Newsies
Kobol, and coming back together.
6) Stray Italian Grayhound, Vienna Teng
this sudden burst of sunlight
and me with my umbrella
cross-indexing every weatherman's report
I was ready for the downslide
but not for spring to well up
this feeling calls for everything I can't afford
is possible now
Those Scenes in Resurrection Ship part I and II. You all know what I'm talking about. Yes, you do.
7) Ocean City Girl, Ivy
The night is falling; the streetlights start to glow
No one’s there when the cracks begin to show
They can’t hurt her like she’s been hurt before
No one here can get near her anymore
Ocean city girl
Ocean city girl
Is saying goodbye
Epiphanies, prior to Baltar's stroke of genius.
8) Kiss Me, Sixpence None the Richer
Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Nightly, beside the green, green grass
Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.
New Caprica. Specifically the groundbreaking.
9) Someday Out of the Blue, Elton John
Someday out of the blue
Maybe years from now
Or tomorrow night
I'll turn and I'll see you
As if we always knew
Someday we would live again, someday soon
This could either apply to the rescue from New Caprica or the Eye of Jupiter and all of the trouble surrounding Hera. Either way, soon we're back to the Golden Age of Flirting, with...
10) Walking on Sunshine, Katrina and the Waves
I used to think maybe you loved me: now I know that it's true
And I don't want to spend my whole life just waiting for you
Now I don't want you back for the weekend
Not back for a day, no no no
I said, baby I just want you back and I want you to stay
Ahem. First of all, can I just say that this is the most awkwardly named band ever? Okay. Having said that, this maybe inappropriately happy song pertains to the grand old days of heavy-duty flirting that culminated in A Day in the Life. You know your OTP is canon when his flipping hallucinatory ex-wife ships it.
11) Courage, Jeffrey Michael
Living together, just being together.
12) Cannonball, Vienna Teng
Storms taught me to fly
Love taught me to lie
Life taught me to die
And it's not hard to fall
When you float like a cannonball
The ends of A Disquiet Follows My Soul, The Oath, and Blood on the Scales. Yes, all three. It's a versatile song.
13) Goodbyes, Ben Foster
Pretty much all of their interactions in Daybreak, parts 1 and 2. Can't say any more or I'll start bawling again.
14) You Will Be My Ain True Love, Alison Krauss
And as you walk through death's dark veil,
The cannon's thunder can't prevail,
And those who hunt thee down will fail,
And you will be my ain true love,
And you will be my ain true love.
You know she's holding a spot for Bill on the other side, whenever he gets there.
On a completely different note, how do I still not have a Roslin/Adama ship icon? *uses favorite Roslin icon instead*
