there's a shark in the water

Another fanmix! I think I need to quit for a while after this. I'm tired of music now.

Usagi/Mamoru: Unending

I'll be honest: I tried to attempt fanmixes for other characters in this fandom, but I just can't do it. All the songs I came up with were just too perfect for my OTP, so I hope you'll forgive yet ANOTHER U/M mix. I promise you'll love the songs. XD

the show - lenka (usagi)
i'm just a little bit caught in the middle
i'm so scared but i don't show it
i can't figure it out, it's bringing me down
i know i've got to let it go and just enjoy the show

I like to think of this as Usagi's theme song. She's an innocent girl, whose life has gone off the deep end. She's fighting monsters and Haruna STILL expects her to do homework! Homegirl's life is CRAZY.

bella luna - jason mraz (mamoru)
you're the ghost of royalty imposing love
you're the queen and king imposing everything
twining like a ring around the finger of a girl
i'm just a singer, you're the world

Mamoru, on the other hand, is totally calm, cool and collected. Until he starts to dream of a beautiful princess, asking him for the Silver Crystal. Guy doesn't know he just handed her his heart when he gave back her crumpled test paper.

fallin' for you - eva avila (usagi)
i got a sweet obsession
you have captured my attention
how am i gon' get me through the day

Usagi is fourteen years old. Between that and her crush on Motoki, I think it's safe to say that Mamoru got under her skin fairly quickly. She'd never be able to stop thinking about him, and the miracle romance would start (again) from there.

the duet - never shout never (mamoru)
i know that you think of me sometimes
cause all i do is think of you at night
i know it may take a little time
for you to see you are the love of my life

He'd never admit it, but Mamoru likes a giiiiiiiiiiiiirl! In his shy, terrified male brain, the possibilities are endless. He's just not brave enough to live them out quite yet.

deeper -alexz johnson (usagi)
and the morning shines much brighter to me
somehow, maybe this can last forever
if we fight off what we feel
and you love me like i know you will

Usagi is Serenity, but Serenity is not Usagi. She knows that it's the present that's important, and she's willing to risk everything to try again with Mamoru.

the best thing - relient k (mamoru)
i'll go back to before we met
try and erase the past
try harder to forget cause
nothing will ever be as good as here and now

She doesn't have anything to worry about, though, as Mamoru loves her just as much, without caring about the past.

dreamer - kari kimmel (usagi)
and then it all becomes too much
couldn't you fight a little harder for us
you traded dreams for reality
and promises you couldn't keep
and nothing was the way it seemed

Unfortunately, some dreams get in the way and the miracle couple part ways. Usagi doesn't know what to think anymore, and who can blame her? [This song actually gives me chills when I listen to it while thinking about the R breakup. :'(]

now - jonathan groff (mamoru)
cause everything is breaking down now
since you've been gone
i don't even know the days
i don't know where to start
i'm in agony
there are times i can't breathe now

I am 110% sure that this song expresses almost exactly Mamoru's emotionsidiot that he is in this arc.

stay here forever - jewel (usagi)
oh it's a big world for a boy and a girl
letting go of it all, holding on to one another
oh there's a whole lot of world to discover
underneath the covers

But it wouldn't BE a miracle romance if things didn't work out in the end. Usagi's willing to start again, and being Usagi, jumps right back in with her whole heart.

promise - butch walker (mamoru)
but i promise i can love you
just like a man
and i promise i can hold you
like nobody can

Our boy's a lot smarter this time around.

gravity - sara bareilles (usagi)
i live here on my knees
as i try to make you see
that you're everything i think i need
here on the ground
but you're neither friend nor foe
though i can't seem to let you go
the one thing that i still know
is that you're keeping me down

He is what holds her down from floating away into all that immense power. No one said being a Lunar Princess would be easy.

breathless - better than ezra (mamoru)
lay down your guns, too weak to run
nothing can harm you hear
your precious heart, broken and scarred
somehow you made it through
i only ask that you won't go again

He sacrifices for her, but he isn't a martyr. Mamoru knows perfectly well that in the end, he's what stands between Usagi and death. Love gives them both strength.

stay - miley cyrus (usagi)
well i try to live without you
but tears fall from my eyes
i'm alone and i feel empty
god i'm torn apart inside
i look up at the stars
hoping you're doing the same
and somehow i feel closer

Stars. They're the only thing Usagi has of her true love, but her faith never wavers. She believes.

the saltwater room - owl city (usagi)
can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn't let me sign
all my islands have sunk in the deep,
and i can hardly relax or even oversleep
i feel as if i were home some nights
when we count all the ship lights
i guess we'll never know why sparrows love the snow
we'll turn off all the lights and set this ballroom aglow

Mamoru doesn't know anything anymore. His life is over, his time with Usagi finished. But he won't give up. There's always time.

only you - sinead o'connor (usagi)
so you dared to let me shine
even walk a step behind
willingly you give yourself to me
knowing who i was born to be
only you know how to hear me through the silence
you reach a part of me that no one else can see
forever true there's only me
and only you, only me and you

It's a give-and-take, this love. Usagi knows she's everything to Mamoru, but you know what? He's everything to her too.

luck of my life - hank green (mamoru)
when i go downtown i find a perfect parking spot
okay, i guess the right answers on my tests a lot
and yeah, when i fell out of that cypress tree i didn't die
but you, my girl, are the luck of my life

Life is never quite as perfect as when Usagi and Mamoru are together.

Ah, Serena&Darien (my first Anime OTP) FTW.
This is a very nice selection of songs. DL'ing!

[identity profile] 2010-06-28 07:21 am (UTC)(link)
Very very nice!

Nice artist selection. Am thrilled to see Better than Ezra. I love them!

All though, that is a very different interpretation of the Sara Barielles song. I always think of "keeping me down" as in he's dragging her down and not allowing her to be who she needs to be. Especially because of the line "set me free, leave me be, I don't want to fall another moment into your gravity."

I do LOVE the mix. Beautiful and thoughtful job. Brava!

The songs you pick fits their relationship to a T.

This looks awesome! I'm downloading. I really love the way you broke down how you see their relationship and how that applies to the mix. I can't wait to give it a listen! :)
