What is the soundtrack to your fandom? And why?

While I'm not the most musically inclined person around there are still certain songs that remind me/make me think of certain fandoms or the ships within them.

The Avengers
Because I'm Awesome - The Dollyrots -  I love this song for Mrs. Peel. All the lyrics just fit her perfectly. There's no-one more awesome than Mrs. Peel. :)
My Life Would Suck Without You - Kelly Clarkson (Glee Cast Version) - This is my favourite song for Steed/Peel - both awesome on their own but together they're so much more. It's my greatest fandom wish to one day see a Steed/Peel fanvid made to this song.

The Tracks Of My Tears - Smokey Robinson and The Miracles - This is very much David's theme. Head over heels for Maddie since the first time he met her all he wants is a little reciprocity. Always the joker on the outside when in reality he's broken inside.

Don't Fear The Reaper - Blue Oyster Cult - Dean's favourite Mullet-Rock. The whole spirit of the show can be found in this song.

Love Me Dead - Ludo - Thanks to this trailer for the show House always makes me think of this song. It really does fit the character
Teadrop - Massive Attack - The song used for the original theme tune. I love this one for the show a lot more than the replacement score the Australian version of the series has. The whole heartbeat-beat medical angle of the clip fits so much better too.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

The Album - Sometimes a show does it best themselves. This is without a doubt my favourite CD soundtrack of all time. Listening to this one always takes me back to those highschool days of watching Buffy during its initial run and excitedly discussing it the next day with friends. Love it! :D

Life On Mars
The Album - Another official soundtrack done well. I love so many songs on this one - especially those that relate to Sam and his journey trapped in the past. A good driving album which also suits the show really well. :)

Defying Gravity - Despite belonging to a completely different fandom Firefly is the one that first comes to mind whenever I hear this song because of this truly brilliant fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] y_fish.

Star Trek XI
Circus - though I never would have thought of it myself a little Britney Spears is just perfect for Captain Kirk. This fanvid by [livejournal.com profile] butterfly  shows exactly what made the latest Star Trek movie so very awesome. And anything that can make you actually enjoy Britney Spears is worth a look. :P

DAY 30: Saddest character death

Perhaps not the saddest death ever, but Jenny's death from Buffy The Vampire Slayer was one of the first character deaths that really got my attention. This was such a big moment when it happened in the show. It was the first big indication of Joss' 'no character is safe' style of storytelling. It also proved exactly how cruel and terrifyingly evil Angel/Angelus could be. While the death itself is more shocking than sad it's the following scenes that bring the sorrow. Having Giles arrive home to the flowers, music and champagne expecting such joy, all the while not knowing that Jenny was already dead, is just heartbreaking to watch. As is the scene in the alley, in the rain, where it's all Buffy can do to try and comfort him and try to stop him from getting himself killed. I love that scene so much. It kills me every time. :(

DAY 28: First TV show obsession

The first show I remember really getting into many years ago was Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I caught this one when it first aired back in 1997 and thought it was awesome. I loved that it was a show about normal kids just trying to get through school who had to deal with normal problems, all the while trying to keep the whole world safe from vampires, demons and all kinds of other monsters. It probably helped that I first started highschool in '97 and was really able to relate to the characters and their more normal trials. I loved being able to grow up with this show through the years. And while I didn't enjoy the later series as much as the earlier ones, it was always well written, funny, full of likeable characters and had moments that shocked, made you laugh and made you cry right up to the end. This show is a classic and always will be. :)

Favourite Characters: Giles, Willow, Spike, Oz
Favourite Episodes: Restless, Hush, Innocence, Halloween, Once More With Feeling (and many, many more :P )

DAY 23: Most annoying character

This one is a tie between Dawn from Buffy and Connor from Angel. Both of these characters had the special ability of annoying the hell out of me any time they were on the screen. This 'verse already went through its teenage stage with the early seasons of Buffy and that was a hell of a lot more maturely played, with a lot less whining and moping. Can't stand either of these characters and personally think both shows would have done just as well if they'd never been introduced.
