music: the tendency is to push it as far as you can  
For the maybe two people on my flist into True Blood, a mix! For the rest, a bunch of GQMF music!



A mix for Eric & Pam



--

[Dialogue] - RocknRolla Soundtrack

People ask the question... what's a RocknRolla? And I tell 'em - it's not about drums, drugs, and hospital drips, oh no. There's more there than that, my friend. We all like a bit of the good life - some the money, some the drugs, other the sex game, the glamour, or the fame. But a RocknRolla, oh, he's different. Why? Because a real RocknRolla wants the fucking lot.

Somebody to Love ’03 – The Boogie Pimps
The tendency is to push it as far as
you can.


--

Creator - Santogold
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place up on the radar


--

Down By The Water – PJ Harvey
I had to lose her to do her harm.
I heard her holler, I heard her moan
My lovely daughter


--

Blinding - Florence and the Machine
Felt it in my fist, in my feet, in the hollows of my eyelids
Shaking through my skull, through my spine and down through my ribs

No more dreaming of the dead as if death itself was undone


--

Wicked Game – Giant Drag (cover)
And I don't want to fall in love. Nobody loves no-one.

--

Gimme Danger – Iggy & The Stooges
I got a little angel, want a little danger.

--

Hella Good – No Doubt
A performance deserving of standing ovations
And who would have thought it'd be the two of us?


--

Love Punch – The Chalets
I'm coming home to a punch or a kiss.
I know you love me but you're fucking crazy


--

I Like You So Much Better When You're Naked - Ida Maria
What the hell do I do this for?
You're just another guy
OK, you're kind of sexy.


--

Filthy/Gorgeous - Scissor Sisters
'Everytime you get out of your Corvette Stingray in your white pumps and your pink acid wash jeans with the matching pink rabbit fur coat... we say miss thang you got it going on, you is gorgeous.'

--

Fixin To Thrill – Dragonette
Come on and show me that you know how to use it
And do your duty


--

Spank (KMFDM Remix) - kidneythieves
it's all your graces, your deadly sins
love and hate you it's so intense
if i could burn you walk away not see you anymore
i would try to burn you but i won't


--

Heads Will Roll – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Off off off with your head
Dance dance dance ’til you’re dead.


--

Got Love To Kill – Juliette and the Licks (MSTRKRFT remix)
Skip in and walk like you own the place, baby.

--

This is the New Shit – Marilyn Manson vs. Goldfrapp
Sex sex sex and don't forget the violence.

--

Hell is Round the Corner – Tricky
Passing the indifference ensures the struggle for my family
We’re hungry, beware of our appetite.


--

I Want You (She’s So Heavy) – The Beatles
I want you so bad, it’s driving me mad, it’s driving me ...
She’s so heavy heavy, heavy, heavy.

--

This Town – Frank Sinatra
You better believe that I'm leavin' this town.

--

’03 Bonnie and Clyde – Beyoncé and Jay –Z
Cruisin down the westside - highway
Doing what we like to do - our, way
Eyes behind shades,

I keep you workin that Hermes Birkin bag,
Manolo Blahnik, Timbs, aviator lens
600 drops, Mercedes Benz
The only time you wear Burberry to swim
And I don't have to worry, only worry is him
She do anything necessary for him
And I do anything necessary for her.

As a rule I don't usually write notes to my mixes - I figure they should speak for themselves. But I love talking music, so screw that. This is my GQMF music, and there's a lot of heavy synth beats, remixes and tunes that make you wanna grind up on a dance floor in the middle of a library. Some are what I listen to when I'm putting on my warpaint, getting ready to go out clubbing, some of it is fight music, and hell, there's a lot of sex tunes in there too. Because that's how I see Eric and Pam. Angst, unless Godric is involved, is just not up their alley. They are rich bitches, they look good and fuck if they don't know it, and they are totally into each other in an unexclusive, lackadaisical way that's more incestuous-brother-sister-fuck-buddies than angsty-romantic-melodrama-addicted-lovers. Which is only as it should be for a vampire and her maker. Together, they initiate crime. They are, to put it in Guy Ritchie's terms, real motherfucking Rocknrollas.

I've always loved Somebody to Love '03, and it always reminds me of the good doctor, Hunter S. Thompson and his own peculiar morality, where he utterly disregards all societal notions of sanity and safety and lives by his own, removed code, and spends a lot of time appearing to be simply amused by normal human beings. I feel Eric and Pam may be able to relate.
Down by the Water covers the incest vibe for me, that dirty, vaguely disturbing power dynamic that always exists between a vampire and their maker, and the song is a wonderfully haunting, vibing thing.
The cover of Wicked Game has a fantastic electric guitar solo, and the cover just grabs the song by the rock jugular and does things to it that are insanely awesome. Love Punch just cracks me up and is utterly apt at the same time, while Spank is one of the sexiest, most fucked up songs I've heard in a long time.
Fixin to Thrill is by Dragonette, a new discovery, and I love their music. They're kind of like the long-lost cousins of Lady Gaga who've spent the last three years trailing devastation, broken-hearts and phenomenal memories through half the clubs in the Eastern European bloc. She's So Heavy is the Beatles, what more can I say? To me, it's about a woman who can drive men mad and not give a flying fuck. Brilliant.
This Town. Frank. It's all about Sinatra in my heart. This one goes out to Fangtasia, lost in a dreary buttfuck town, but bringing its own style if it kills it.
Bonnie and Clyde, listen to the lyrics. Seriously, this is Pam and Eric in all their materialistic, hedonistic glory.

And one last thing, if you download nothing else, download Blinding, by Florence and the Machine. This band is mind-blowing, it is the music of my nightmares, soul, the universe and everything, and every time I hear this chorus my heart swells up like my ribcage is about to explode. So, you know. I'm kind of a fan.

Apologies for the lack of a .zip file. My internet connection is whack and won't let me upload large files. See above!

Comments are loved and adored.

Because this mix kicks much butt and I believe in paying things forward, I uploaded a .zip of the whole thing for you. I'll keep it up on my Mediafire account for a month.
