Fall into a Deathless Spell - An Eric and Sookie Fanmix  
Medium: TV and Books
Fandom: True Blood
Subject: Eric and Sookie
Title: Fall Into a Deathless Spell
Notes: Softer mix featuring The Cure, David Bowie, Prince, and more.

Well, here's something I have wanted to do for a long time.  And since I have had a bunch of people say I should do a Sookie/Eric fanmix, I thought I'd go ahead.  In my head, this is kind of a part one of two mixes, as I usually do heavier mixes than this.  This one is rather soft.  I figure if this one is well received, I'll do a heavier one as well.  So, let me know what you think.
As far as the book vs. TV show question, cuz I know it's always going to be asked, I have read the first book and the first half of the second.  I cannot stand the writing style, which is unfortunate because I know the story from what I have read.  So I couldn't read anymore of it.  However, I have read the synopsis' of them, so I know the bullet points.  Granted, that's not everything, but I do adore the show and I have the stuff I've seen (and hope to see) in the show as well.  So this is all kind of a mix of both.  

If Only Tonight We Could Sleep - The Cure
If only tonight we could sleep
In a bed made of flowers
If only tonight we could fall
In a deathless spell
If only tonight we could slide
Into deep black water
And breathe
U R A Fever - The Kills
I am a fever, I am a fever
I ain't born typical.
We are a fever, we are a fever
We ain't born typical.

Strangers When We Meet - David Bowie
Your embrace 
It was all that I feared
That whirling room 
We trade by vendu
Steely resolve is falling from me
My poor soul, poor bruised passivity
All your regrets ran rough-shod over me

The Beautiful Ones - Prince

Baby, baby, baby
Can't you stay with me tonight?
Oh baby, baby, baby
Don't my kisses please you right?
You were so hard to find
The beautiful ones, they hurt you every time
Paint a perfect picture
Bring to life a vision in one's mind
The beauitiful ones
Always smash the picture

Modern Romance - Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs 
Time, time is gone
It stops, stops who it wants
Well, I was wrong
It never lasts
There is no modern romance

Drive - Deftones
Who's gonna pick you up
When you fall?
Who's gonna hang it up
When you call?
Who's gonna pay attention
To your dreams?
Yeah, who's gonna plug their ears
When you scream?

To Build a Home - The Cinematic Orchestra
By the cracks of the skin, I climbed to the top
I climbed the trees to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me

Summer Moon - The Raveonettes
The dark and surf is laughing
August night we're in love
The silent star is smiling
Years have gone all have changed
I'm saddened of this triumph

Knock Me Out - Linda Perry feat. Grace Slick
You held me down
And kept me sober
Through all this time
With no regret
I guess that's just the way I liked it
Maybe when I'm free
I'll realize all I really wanted
To share all the peace

I feel: energeticenergetic
I'm listening to: Dateline NBC

Thanks so much! Enjoy the show, I'm glad you're getting into it. I'll have another True Blood buddy, lol! :)

Yup!! :D It's so awesome. I've seen some of the episodes but really didn't get hooked into it until now. :)
Lady Mansonladymanson on June 5th, 2011 05:51 am (UTC)
I remember I watched it OnDemand about a month into the first season and had to get my husband hooked on it. I didn't care for the second season cuz of the MaryAnn storyline, but the third season was awesome.

Eh gross I hated the Maryann storyline it was awful really hated that it was just disgusting. Yuck

That's amazing! And how weird is it that I didn't select one of those songs for my Sookie/Eric mix? Seriously, so many songs fit those two - and your selection is great, really. But I have to be honest, I clicked the link because of the gorgeous cover art, it's what I do with all famixes ;)
Lady Mansonladymanson on June 5th, 2011 05:50 am (UTC)
Oh, there are FAR too many songs that work with these too. :) Thanks for the art comment too - I'm the same with fanmixes. I love pretty cover art.

I know what you mean about the books. I read the first one and I intend to eventually read them all, but I was struggling so much dueing the second one.

Thanks, these are really nice!
Lady Mansonladymanson on June 5th, 2011 07:54 pm (UTC)
So glad I'm not alone on the books. Oh, and thank you!!! :)

Nice mix!
I've got a tumblr of Eric/Sookie quotes that might help you out since you don't like the book's writing style. I post little snippets of them- all the ones that relate to Eric and Sookie.

it's ericsookiequotes.tumblr.com

Re: Nice mix!
Thanks! And I'll have to check out the Tumblr. I love putting quotes on my Tumblr anyway, so some of those would be fun. :)
