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 09: Best scene ever

Another one that was very hard to pick. Do you go for the serious and dramatic, or fall-back on the funny. Most of the favourite scenes that I could think of all had an element of humour in them. This scene from Life On Mars is maybe the most memorable. Best moment - Gene Hunt kicking in the nonce and them both waving for the camera. One of my favourite things about Life On Mars is that it was able to have moments like this simply because of the whole initial premise. Has Sam travelled back in time, is he stuck in a crazy coma-dream or has he simply gone insane. In a show where no ground rules have been set and neither the main characters nor the viewers have any idea what is real and what's not, anything is possible. :D

Haven't really been able to access the internet this past week so I've been getting a bit familiar with Photoshop instead.

Here are the fruits of my labour. (Some better than others)

What It Means To Be Sam

Test Card Girl

We're The Force - Version 1

We're The Force - Version 2

And also one Blackpool banner.

Ane speaking of Blackpool, much excitment in the house last night when I saw a mini ad on one of our free-to-air networks for the US remake Viva Laughlin.

I can't see any future for the show, other than one where it crashes and burns a few weeks in, but I'll be watching it anyway as an avid fan of the original series.

Now I knew the network had bought the rights and figured they show it at some time due to the 'Hugh Jackman' factor but I never dreamed we'd be seeing it only a week or so after the US premier.

Too excited - actually moreso than being able to see new episodes of Heroes and House without having to wait until next February (more than likely because I knew we were guaranteed to see those ones). Now if only one of the networks would pick up Pushing Daisies I'd be more than over the moon. :D

Was fiddling around with some screenshots I'd taken from the first series of [Poll #1056721]Version 1 - Woman in Red

Version 2 - Dropping Bullets

Version 3 - Ivanhoe 1

Version 4 - Ivanhoe 2

Also some rather interesting Firefly mentions spotted this weekend.

This one amuses me because that site was my best friend at University. It was there me and a friend staved off boredom when we had free lessons and couldn't be bothered working. Good times. :)

Check out Number 23 on this list.

I think I’ve been watching too much British television. Either that or I’m cracking up.

This is the picture I’ve had in my head all day.

It’s dark outside. Everyone has gone home. Gene’s sitting alone in his office with a glass of whiskey. A glance at the clock lets him know exactly how late it is. With a sigh he decides it must be time to pack up and go home - or at least see if the others are still at the pub.

He stands up, grabs his jacket and swallows down the last bit of whiskey from the glass. Upon exiting his office he notices he’s not as alone as he thought he was. Across the other side of the room Sam is slumped over his desk.

“What are you still doing here?” Gene bellows.

Sam raises his head, a quizzical look on his face. It’s almost as if he’s trying to decide if Gene means here in the office or here in 1973.

He gets up from his chair and starts singing – all the while moving slowly across the room towards Gene.

Here I am, waiting for a sign, I never seem to know
If you want me in your life, where do I stand
I just don't know
I never feel I know you
'Cause you blow hot and you blow cold, it seems I've grown attached
Though we're not the perfect match
I just can't explain

Should I stay
Should I go
Could I ever really stand to let you go
Can you now find the right words to say
That maybe I'm getting in your way

At this point Sam has reached Gene and the two of them, eyes closed, slowly and calmly start to waltz around the desks in that ever smoky CID office.

What the hell is that all about? I still get the giggles every time I think about it. Hee. ^_^
