[ profile] roadmarks Notes: I had a blast reading and mixing for this fic and I can't wait to read it again! When I was mixing, I started out trying to pick songs that fit with the plot, but then I gave in to the urge to make a mix that was mostly about pining -- I hope you like it nonetheless! :)

Author's Notes: I think this is actually a stealth pining mix. I didn't realize it was the one with the mixer note about pining until I was looking for a title for the story and looked up the lyrics to all the songs in both mixes. This is such an upbeat mix that if you aren't paying attention to the lyrics you won't know how much pining there is in it. You could conceivably have a lively party to this mix. I love how well that fits with Leighton and Victoria being undercover and upbeat while they're missing each other.

A few specific notes: I love "Fair Game," and I'm not sure I'd ever heard anything by The Like before. My brother loves Bassnectar, so I can't wait to tell him someone put a Bassnectar remix on a mix for something I wrote. I love that both mixers put Stars songs on their mixes. I only knew one of their songs before, but now I'll definitely be looking for more. "First Train Home" keeps catching my ear. I love that this ends with "Dog Days Are Over," which is neither a pining nor coming home song, but a keep fighting song (at least in my head).

I knew one of the mixes had notes that the mixer had cut from following the plot to just making a pining mix. It's actually the other mix that has that note, but if you listen to this one, you can see why I thought it was this one on first listen. This mix has a lovely melancholy feel. If you are in a long distance relationship or unrequited love situation, you may not want to listen to this. I'm not in either of those situations, and it still almost made me cry on first listen.

A few specific notes: My dad is a big Alison Krauss fan, and I'm looking forward to telling him that I have one of her songs on a mix for something I wrote. I love that both mixers put Stars songs on their mixes. I did know this song, and I will have to go looking for more of their music. I was absolutely delighted to see Alisha's Attic on here. I haven't thought of them in years, but I remember loving one of their songs way back in the day. "Moments in Love" catches my ear every time I listen to this mix. "Home" is a lovely ending to this mix.

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Master Post

I've been making an effort over the last year and a half or so to listen to new-to-me music, so the first thing I was excited about with this mix was that I only knew one song on it. Then, once I listened to it, I was also excited about the way it fits with the story. I love that it sounds like a movie soundtrack, but not the glossy new-school, let's shove any music that we want to promote now onto it sort of movie soundtrack. This is an old-school, mellow soundtrack for a romantic movie, which is absolutely perfect for this story.
