    Thought we were meant to be

    5. Setting the World on Fire - Kenny Chesney Feat. Pink (Acacia Ruskin)

    Make you wanna run...
    #18
    Oh fun. I used my spotify general music playlist but skipped instrumental tracks~

    001. Teenage Icon - The Vaccines
    I'm no teenage icon
    I'm no Frankie Avalon
    I'm nobody's hero

    002. Victorious - Wolfmother
    It seems the competition is riding on her tail
    It seems that they were hoping she, hoping she would fail
    The town has come to raise our guns to the sun
    She will prove herself worthy
    She will be the one

    She will be victorious
    And won't get the battle loss
    Always-a mysterious
    'Cause she will be victorious

    003. I Predict a Riot - Kaiser Chiefs
    Walking through town is quite scary
    And not very sensible either
    A friend of a friend he got beaten
    He looked the wrong way at a policeman

    004. Panic Switch - Silversun
    And I'll try
    To hold on tight tonight.
    Pink slip, inviting me inside.

    Wanna burn skin and brand what once was mine,
    But the red views keep ripping the divide.

    005. Ready to Start - Arcade Fire
    If I was scared
    I would
    And if I was pure
    You know I would
    And if I was yours
    But I'm not

    006. Bigger Than Us - White Lies
    Apologies on your fingernails,
    Love flickered in the city of lights
    Like intermittent radio waves.
    I don't need your tears
    I don't want your love
    I've just got to get home.

    007. Golden Touch - Razorlight
    I saw my girl with the golden touch
    Give 'em a taste but not too much
    I just can't listen to the words of fools
    I don't give away too much
    Someone will need your golden touch

    008. Steady, As She Goes - The Raconteurs
    Well here we go again, you've found yourself a friend that knows you well
    But no matter what you do, it always feels as though you tripped and fell
    So steady as she goes

    009. Help I'm Alive - Metric
    Help I'm alive
    My heart keeps beating like a hammer
    Hard to be soft
    Tough to be tender
    Come take my pulse the pace is on a runaway train
    Help I'm alive
    My heart keeps beating like a hammer
    Beating like a hammer

    010. Content - Joywave
    I'm searching for the difference between
    What content and content can bring
    Maybe they're no different 'cause they look the same
    Maybe I'm just an algorithm with a given name
    But... trying to find the difference

    011. Kanye's In My Head - Boy Epic
    I'd rather be alone in my bed
    Alone in my head
    Alone by myself because I know I'm a mess
    Everyone's strange
    I'm hiding my name
    Cause I'm too afraid of all the things I might say
    ...
    Kanye's in my head 
    Rock n' roll is dead 
    Just like mama said
    I'm not good at making friends 
    There I go again
    Should've kept my ass in bed
    Just like mama said 
    I'm not good at making friends

    012. Big Ideas - The Boxer Rebellion
    You're the shadow stealing light against the wall
    You're the dream I had just before I woke up
    Am I running through that mind of yours at all

    013. Whirring - The Joy Formidable
    This much delight, fills columns to new heights
    All these things about me you never can tell
    Colors run prime, paint a picture so bright
    All these things about me you never can tell
    You make me sleep so badly invisible friend

    014. Elephant - Tame Impala
    You know that you're dreaming about being loved by him
    Too bad your chances are slim

    015. Crow - Sasha Siem
    Tonight we are strangers
    Tonight we are losing face
    Erasing all traces
    Tonight we are stranger
    Then we ever been before
    We're ignoring, ignoring your disguise

    016. Nothing Arrived - Villagers
    Savanna scatters and the seabird sings
    So why should we fear what travel brings?
    What were we hoping to get out of this?
    Some kind of momentary bliss?

    017. Poison & Wine - The Civil Wars
    Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
    You think your dreams are the same as mine

    018.  Deliverance - RY X
    I've been crawling up inside your lungs
    Feeling up your mind with my tongue
    I didn’t need to know but I need to run
    Tonight we roll, we lock we lunge

    019. Wilderlove - John Mark McMillan
    You are the wilderness and I fall fast drawn
    To the rise of your vast expanse
    I feel so underdressed so civilized and small
    By the powers that you possess

    020. Amelia - Skott
    Gee we had it figured out
    Limitless in love
    We even broke into a warehouse
    So no one would find out
    Your father chased us down
    We even packed that suitcase
    Are you really walking out?

    021. Ends of the Earth - Lord Huron
    Oh, there's an island where all things are silent
    I'm gonna whistle a tune
    Oh, there's a desert that size can't be measured
    I'm gonna count all the dunes

    022. Your Ghost - E^ST
    Strength comes and strength goes
    Like most things
    And weakness you can't show
    Like most things
    It's music to your ears
    The silence
    And I can't see you disappear
    In your eyes

    023. In Dreams - Ben Howard
    Mhh in dreams I have watched it spin
    Seen a violent crack of atoms where all light comes in
    Hmm in dreams I have lain in sin just to be the cracked and cared for

    024. Heaven's Gate - Dawn Landes, Piers Faccini
    I'll tell wings and winds to fly, carry no demise;
    We have notes and songs that cry, praying with our hands.

    025. Beautiful Undone - Laura Doggett
    I'm looking down and my heart's connected
    I'm feeling love from a different view
    We learn the most when we least expect it
    We learn the most when we break in two
    You know you're beautiful undone

    026. Until We Go Down - Ruelle
    And I feel it running through my veins
    And I need that fire just to know that I'm awake

    027. Shape of You - Ed Sheeran
    I'm in love with the shape of you
    We push and pull like a magnet do
    Although my heart is falling too
    I'm in love with your body

    028. Howl - Florence and the Machine
    Now there's no holding back, I'm making an attack
    My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out
    The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound
    I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground

    029. Fangs - Night Riots
    She used to pale blushing moon to cast sun into my room
    She is the only light I need, yeah

    030. Give Me Love - Ed Sheeran
    Give me love like never before
    'Cause lately I've been craving more
    And it's been a while but I still feel the same

    I have some ideas but :eyes:

    Meet me halfway

    Slow burn the devotion

    And it all moves into one

    My concience all lit up
    This second for
    Centred on you

    03 Second Hand News - Fleetwood Mac

    04 The Sound - The 1975
    And you say I'm such a cliche,
    I can't see the difference in it either way.
    And we left things to protect my mental health
    But you call me when you're bored and you're playing with yourself

    You're so conceited
    I said "I love you"
    What does it matter if I lie to you?

    05 Repeat - Young the Giant
    Show me love, fill my cup
    The world's not empty
    It's how you want it to be
    Push and pull, the glass is full
    Float on an ocean
    We're caught up in the motion
    So we move

    06 The Sharpest Lives - My Chemical Romance
    This alone, you're in time for the show
    You're the one that I need
    I'm the one that you loathe
    You can watch me corrode like a beast in repose
    'Cause I love all the poison
    Away with the boys in the band

    07 Of All The Gin Joints in the World - Fall Out Boy
    You only hold me up like this
    Cause you don't know who I really am
    Sometimes I just want to know what it's like to be you

    08 Alone, Together - The Strokes
    Take me away
    See I've got to explain
    Things, they have changed
    In such a permanent way
    Life seems unreal
    Can we go back to your place?
    Oh, "You drink too much"
    Makes me drink just the same

    09 The Mother We Share - CHVRCHES
    Into the night for once, we're the only ones left

    And when it all fucks up, you put your head in my hands
    It's a souvenir for when you go

    10 I've Got All This Ringing in My Ears and None on My Fingers - Fall Out Boy
    Do you remember the way I held your hand?

    This way so many times
    I could close my eyes

    The truth hurts worse than anything I could bring myself to do to you

    11 The Edge of Glory - Lady Gaga

    13 What a Catch, Donnie - Fall Out Boy
    I got troubled thoughts
    And the self-esteem to match

    And all I can think of
    Is the way I'm the one
    Who charmed the one
    Who gave up on you

    14 Sleepyhead - Passion Pit
    They couldn't think of something to say the day you burst
    With all their lions, with all their might and all their thirst
    They crowd your bedroom like some thoughts wearing thin
    Against the walls, against your rules, against your skin

    15 Hey You - No Doubt
    Hey you with the eyes full of hope
    You think you can rope your desire
    Hey you, you naive thing
    Your patience in time will tire

    16 Heart is Full - Miike Snow feat. Run the Jewels
    Please don't knock over my heart
    Cause my heart is full of you
    Yeah, my heart is full of you
    I don't worry 'bout tomorrow
    Cause my heart is full of you
    Yeah, my heart is full of you

    18 Milk and Cookies - Melanie Martinez
    Can't take it anymore, need to put you to bed
    Sing you a lullaby where you die at the end

    19 We Will Become Silhouettes - The Postal Service
    I've got a cupboard with cans of food, filtered water,
    And pictures of you and I'm not coming out
    Until this is all over
    And I'm looking through the glass where the light bends
    At the cracks
    And I'm screaming at the top of my lungs pretending
    The echoes belong to someone
    Someone I used to know

    20 Young Volcanoes - Fall Out Boy

    21 All I Want - Passion Pit
    I get the notion that I'm almost there
    I get the notion that we're getting closer
    And with one motion it could all go wrong
    If I'm emotional I'll ruin it all
    And the roof will cave in and fall to the ground
    And I'll keep on trying though I could never let you down

    I promise this
    After each moment, just a kiss
    On your cheek or on your lips
    That's all we'll ever have

    22 Close Your Eyes and Count to Ten - Grouplove
    And the sunlight in your eyes
    Pins and needles
    No surprise
    And the moon shines in your hair
    Can you believe it we're really here

    23 Stars - The xx
    I can give it all on the first date
    I don't have to exist outside this place
    And dear know that I can change

    But if stars, shouldn't shine
    By the very first time
    Then dear it's fine, so fine by me
    'Cos we can give it time
    So much time
    With me

    24 The Youth - MGMT
    This is a call of arms
    To live and love and sleep together
    We could flood the streets
    With love or light or heat, whatever
    Lock the parents out
    Cut a rug, twist and shout
    Wave your hands, make it rain
    The stars will rise again

    25 G.I.N.A.S.F.S. - Fall Out Boy
    Trade Baby Blues, for Wide-Eyed Browns
    I sleep with your old shirts
    And walk through this house in your shoes
    I know it's strange
    It's a strange way of saying that I know I'm supposed to love you
    I'm supposed to love you

    26 Emoticons - The Wombats
    It's tough to stay objective, baby
    With your tongue abseiling down my neck
    It's a bulletproof offer I can't accept
    It's tough to maintain focus, baby
    Now all my elephants are in the room
    We crave the fiction when we need the truth

    27 Wherever You Are - Ke$ha
    Something in your kiss,
    Made my body electric,
    You set me free.
    That night, brought to life,
    All the magic that's inside,
    Of you and me.

    Wherever you are,
    You are forever on my mind.
    Wherever you are,
    Know that our love will never die.

    28 Numb - Marina & the Diamonds
    I feel numb most of the time
    The lower I get the higher I'll climb
    And I will wonder why
    I got dark only to shine
    Looking for the golden light
    Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice
    Burn, burn, burn bright

    Oh, I get dark oh and I'm in hell
    I need a friend, oh but I can't yell
    Yeah, I'm no good, no good to anyone
    'Cause all I care about is being number one

    29 Still Sane - Lorde

    why yes I did just engineer a mini-site-wide-plot featuring loads of gratuitous death and violence so that I could use those Decemberist lyrics, thanks for noticing!

    Okay so I'm taking this from my holiday playlist because that's basically all I listen to because it's downloaded on my kindle, and it's a very limited playlist, and basically the only music I like these days is like 90s RnB, modern dance, and like four songs from the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 because I went to go see that just before I went on holiday. Basically my shit music taste has become even worse.

    1. Texts From Your Ex - Tinie Tempah feat. Tinashe
    2. Call on Me, Ryan Rebach Remix - Starley

    This is actually great for lyrics so here's the whole song lyrics because I can't pick a few lines

    3. Birthday Sex - Jeremih
    4. No Diggity - Blackstreet
    5. Show You Love - Kato, Sigala, and Hailee Steinfeld
    6. Crying in The Club - Camila Carbello

    So instead of someone crying in a (night)club, they can cry in a (Ladies')
    club ;)
    7. Power - Little Mix feat. Stormzy
    8. Solo Dance - Martin Jansen
    9. Starving - Hailee Steinfeld, Grey, and Zedd
    10. Cool for The Summer - Demi Lovato
    11. Bulletproof - La Roux
    12. Let Me Hold You (Turn You On) - Cheat Codes
    13. Mr. Blue Sky - Electric Light Orchestra
    14. No Lie - Sean Paul feat. Dua Lupa
    15. One Time - Marian Hill
    16. Be The One - Dua Lipa
    17.  Despacito - a lot of people, YOU KNOW THE SONG
    18. Misery - Maroon 5
    19.  Sonnentanz (Sun Don't Shine) - Klangkarussell and Will Heard
    20. That's What I Like - Bruno Mars
    21. How Deep is Your Love - Calvin Harris and Disciples
    22. Shape of You - Ed Sheeran and Stormzy
    23. She's a Lady - Tom Jones (technically actually the Lion Babe version because it has to be dance)
    24. Comin' Home Baby - idk who it's originally by but I have the Michael Bublé version.
    25. Gold Digger - Kanye West and Jamie Foxx
    26. Love Potion No. 9 - The Clovers

    I didn't know if it was day or night,
    I started kissing everything in sight,
    But when I kissed a cop on 34th and Vine,
    He broke my little bottle of love potion number nine.
    - I'd like this to be done w/ an auror.

    27. Hips Don't Lie - Shakira and Wyclef Jean
    28. Promiscuous - Nelly Furtado and Timbaland
    29. Breathe - Blu Cantrell and Sean Paul
    30. Ain't Nobody - idk who it's originally by, I have the Felix Jaehn remix because again it has to be dance.


    OMG ALL OF THESE SONGS ARE TOTES INAPROPES, I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO MAKE THEM INTo THREADS

    I've been on a musicals binge and kept going ~ooh, I'd love to make a thread outta that so I decided to pick my favorite song from 30 different musicals mostly from the 1930-1950ish era (actually 29 because I couldn't choose between two songs from State Fair >.>) and will be making threads out of 'em which will be linked once I've done them. Included are some lyrics from the song that I'll delete once I've made it into a thread.

    I also made a youtube playlist of all the songs listed below
    1. The Trolley Song from Meet Me in St. Louis
    2. Isn't It Kinda Fun from State Fair
      Quote:Maybe you'll never be the love of my life,
      Maybe I'm not the boy of your dreams.
      But isn't it kind of fun to look in each other's eyes
      Swapping romantic gleams?

      Maybe you're not a girl to have and to hold,
      Maybe I'm not a boy who would stay.
      But isn't it kind of fun carousing around the town
      Dancing the night away?
    3. It's A Grand Night For Singing from State Fair
      Quote:It's a grand night for singing,
      The stars are bright above.
      The earth is a-glow
      And, to add to the show,
      I think I am falling in love!
      Falling, falling in love!
    4. Goin' Courtin' from Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
      Quote:Don't forget to turn the other cheek,
      Soon you'll both be larkin',
      Goin' sparkin'
      Goin' dancin'

      At a fancy ball or minuet.
      Goin' dancin',
      You'll impress her with your etiquette.
    5. Singing In The Rain from Singing in the Rain
      Quote:I'm singing in the rain
      Just singing in the rain
      What a glorious feelin'
      I'm happy again

      I'm laughing at clouds
      So dark up above
      The sun's in my heart
      And I'm ready for love
    6. The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing from White Christmas
      Quote:The best things happen while you're dancing
      Things you would not do at home
      Come naturally on the floor

      For dancing soon becomes romancing
      When you hold a girl in your arms
      That you've never held before
    7. Anything You Can Do from Annie, Get Your Gun
      Quote:Anything you can do,
      I can do better
      I can do anything
      Better than you.

      Anything you can be
      I can be greater.
      Sooner or later,
      I'm greater than you.
    8. Sixteen Going on Seventeen from The Sound of Music
      Quote:I am sixteen going on seventeen
      I know that I'm naive
      Fellows I meet may tell me I'm sweet
      And willingly I believe

      I am sixteen going on seventeen
      Innocent as a rose
      Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
      What do I know of those
    9. Getting to Know You from the King and I
      Quote:Getting to know you,
      Getting to know all about you.
      Getting to like you,
      Getting to hope you like me.
    10. Get Me To The Church On Time from My Fair Lady
      Quote:I'm getting married in the morning! Ding dong!
      The bells are gonna chime. Pull out the stopper!
      Let's have a whopper! But get me to the church on time!
    11. If I Were A Rich Man from The Fiddler on the Roof
      Quote:If I were a rich man,
      Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
      All day long I'd biddy biddy bum.
      If I were a wealthy man.
      I wouldn't have to work hard.
      Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
      If I were a biddy biddy rich,
      Yidle-diddle-didle-didle man.

      I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,
      Right in the middle of the town.
      A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.
      There would be one long staircase just going up,
      And one even longer coming down,
      And one more leading nowhere, just for show.
    12. Get Happy from Summer Stock
      Quote:Forget your troubles
      Come on get happy
      You better chase all you cares away
      Shout hallelujah
      Come on get happy
      Get ready for the judgement day
    13. People Will Say We're In Love from Oklahoma
      Quote:Don't sigh and gaze at me
      Your sighs are so like mine
      Your eyes mustn't glow like mine
      People will say we're in love!

      Don't start collecting things
      Give me my rose and my glove.
      Sweetheart they're suspecting things
      People will say we're in love.
    14. I Feel Pretty from West Side Story
      Quote:I feel pretty
      Oh, so pretty
      I feel pretty and witty and bright!
      And I pity
      Any girl who isn't me tonight

      I feel charming
      Oh, so charming
      It's alarming how charming I feel!
      And so pretty
      That I hardly can believe I'm real
    15. Diamonds Are a Girls Best Friend from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes
      Quote:A kiss on the hand
      May be quite continental
      But diamonds are a girl's best friend
    16. Thinking of You from Three Little Words
      Quote:Oh, why does it do this to me
      Is it such bliss to be
      Thinking of you

      And when I fall asleep at night, it seems
      You just tiptoe into all my dreams

      So, I think of no other one
      Ever since I’ve begun
      Thinking of you
    17. Doll on a Music Box/Truly Scrumptious from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
      Quote:How can you tell
      I'm under a spell
      I'm waiting for love's first kiss
      You cannot see
      How much I long to be free
    18. Let's Call The Whole Thing Off from Shall We Dance
      Quote:But, oh, if we call the whole thing off
      Then we must part
      And, oh, if we ever part, then that might break my heart
    19. Easter Parade from Easter Parade
      Quote:Never saw you look quite so pretty before
      Never saw you dressed quite so lovely what's more
      I could hardly wait to keep our date this lovely Easter morning
      And my heart beat fast as I came through the door
    20. On How to Be Lovely from Funny Face
      Quote:On how to be lovely
      (On how to be lovely)
      You got to be happy
      (You got to be happy)
      When you can feel
      light and gay
      Then you'll be lovely
      as a holiday.
    21. How Lovely To Be A Woman from Bye Bye Birdie
      Quote:How lovely to be a woman,
      And have one job to do:
      To pick out a boy and train him,
      And then when you are through,
      You've made him the man you want him to be...
      Life's lovely when you're a woman ike me!
    22. Cheek to Cheek from Top Hat
      Quote:Heaven
      I'm in heaven
      And my heart beats
      So that I can hardly speak
      And I seem to find
      The happiness I seek
      When we're out together
      Dancing cheek to cheek
    23. I Won't Dance from Roberta
      Quote:I won't dance, don't ask me
      I won't dance, don't ask me
      I won't dance, Madame, with you
      My heart won't let my feet do things they should do
    24. I Don't Care from In The Good Old Summertime
      Quote:Oh, I don't care, I don't care
      When it comes to happiness,
      I want my share
      Don't try to rearrange me
      There's nothing can change me
      'cause I don't care!
    25. Put Me To The Test from Cover Girl
      Quote:You can dress in sables
      At nightclub front tables--
      If that is what my lady adores.
      Put me to the test, lady
      Just make your request
      And anything that you desire
      Is yours.
    26. I Can Do Without You from Calamity Jane
      Quote:Ya got charms that ain't bewitchin' me
      You've a face no one wud paint
      I got the darnedest itch in me
      To be wherever ya ain't!
    27. Wonder Why from Rich, Young & Pretty
      Quote:Wonder why I'm not myself of late,
      I'm feeling strangely great;
      I wonder why?
      I suppose some genius could explain
      Why I walk in the rain;
      Just let him try!

      It could be
      That you've caught up with me,
      And all the mystery
      I'm thinking of
      Is simply that I went and fell in love!
    28. Almost Like Being in Love from Brigadoon
      Quote:What a day this has been, what a rare mood I'm in
      Why, it's almost like being in love
      There's a smile on my face for the whole human race

    29. A Kiss or Two from Hit The Deck
      Quote:What's a little kiss or two,
      a wee little kiss among friends,
      a pleasure like this
      among friends,
      it's never amis
      among friends.

      All is in the point of view.
      Some say it will hurt you.
      Some deem it a virtue.
      However you view it
      the best people do it.
      So what is a kiss or two?
      What is a kiss or two?

      Quote:I like your poise, that is, I mean, I'm keen about your stance
      Say, you could be the epitome of romance
      What am I saying?
      Where, oh, where, oh, where did you learn to dance?
