 I've ben meaning to do this for some time now, ever since somebody posted over at [ profile] ontd_startrek the link and lyrics to What's On Your Mind by Infomation Society. Then Brittany's K/S vid contest happened and I've been working on a vid w/ this song. And then my laptop went "Um, no", and deleted it. Got a bit pissed, but y'know, shit happens. Oh well. But, I finally found some time to do a fanmix. Went through over 5000 songs, and this bb was born. I tried to make this a fanmix with a plot; well, not my place to tell if I did it the right way.



TRACKLIST AND THE STORY (yay, there's a plot in there!):

01. The Who - Behind Blue Eyes (Kirk's POV)

No one knows what it's like to be the bad man
To be the sad man behind blue eyes
No one knows what it's like
To be hated, to be fated to telling only lies

But my dreams, they aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be
I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance that's never free

I have to admit, this is the first song that comes to my mind when thinking about nu!Kirk before he joined Starfleet. I had some difficulties with choosing the version, though. Limp Bizkit's is a remake, and it's a bit more energetic, but then I thought, damn, who said that TOS Kirk had an easy life? and went with the original.

02. The Hives - Main Offender (Kirk's POV)

This is my main offender
This is what I've got
And it's got me saying
"Why me?"

Long story short: nu!Kirk meets nu!Spock. We all know how it went in ST XI, don't we?

03. Blue Shoes - Better (Spock's POV)

I have never felt what I feel for you
Well, I feel as though I know you
And had to tell you so

Set at the very beginning of their five year mission. Guess the destiny's begginning to mess with our dear Vulcan's mind.

04. Christina Aguilera - Ain't No Other Man (Kirk's POV)

I could feel it from the start
Couldn't stand to be apart
Somethin' 'bout you caught my eye
Somethin' moved me deep inside

I don't know what ya did boy but ya had it
And I've been hooked ever since

I call it the "I'd so tap that" phase. Well, Kirk is a very sensual being (though I'm pretty sure this song could also be written from the POV of at least half of the crew).

05. Jenny Owen Youngs - Fuck Was I (Kirk's POV)

Love tears me up like a demon
Opens the wounds and fills them with lead
and I'm having some trouble just breathing
If we weren't such good friends I think that I'd hate you
If we weren't such good friends I'd wish you were dead

A.k.a. "Looks like our Captain fell in love."

06. Fiona Apple - Never Is A Promise (Spock's POV)

You'll never touch these things that I hold
The skin of my emotions lies beneath my own
You'll never feel the heat of this soul
My fever burns me deeper than I've ever shown to you

Now, I could write a very, very long rant, but I'd rather you listen to the song with three things in mind:
a). angst,
b). UST,
c). the fact that Spock is still unaware of Kirk's feelings for him and thinks that T. in Captain's name still stands for tomcat.

07. 3 Doors Down - Changes (Spock's POV)

I'm not supposed to be scared of anything
But I don't know where I am
I wish that I could move but I'm exhausted

And nobody understands
(How I feel)
I'm tryin' hard to breathe now but there's no air in my lungs
There’s no one here to talk to
And the pain inside is making me numb

Or in other words: obligatory pon farr twist.

08. Lucinda Williams - Unsuffer Me (Spock's POV)

Unsuffer me
Take away the pain
Unbruise, unbloody
Wash away the stain

Anoint my head
With your sweet kiss
My joy is dead
I long for bliss

I long for knowledge
Whispered in my ear
Undo my logic
Undo my fear

Unsuffer me

...and three guesses who comes to the rescue.

09. Information Society - What's On Your Mind (Pure Energy) (first part: Kirk's POV, second: Spock's POV)

I wanna know
What you're thinking
There are some things you can't hide
I wanna know
What you're feeling
Tell me what's on your mind

And yet again: you have to listen to the song carefully to feel it. In the plot news: lots and lots of confusion, a.k.a. what does this mean, this thing we did?

10. Semisonic - Secret Smile (Kirk's POV)

Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me

So use it and prove it
Remove this whirling sadness
I'm losing, I'm bluesing
But you can save me from madness

I guess somebody has just made up his mind...

11. Nick Cave - To Be By Your Side (Spock's POV)

Every mile and every year for every one a little tear
I cannot explain this, Dear, I will not even try

Into the night as the stars collide
Across the borders that divide
Forests of stone standing petrified
To be by your side

...and from what I gather it was the right choice.

12. Marc Cohn - One Safe Place (both)

How many roads we've traveled
How many dreams we've chased
Across sand and sky and gravel
Looking for one safe place

And yet another obligatory thing: happy and fluffy like a tribble end.

13. Pat Benatar - We Belong (Spock's POV)

Close your eyes and try to sleep now
Close your eyes and try to dream
Clear your mind and do your best
To try and wash the palette clean
We can't begin to know it
How much we really care
I hear your voice inside me
I see your face everywhere with 100% more bonding!

And because I can't end the mix with an unlucky thirteen, a bonus:

14. Emmylou Harris - A Love That Will Never Grow Old

Lean on me, let our hearts beat in time
Feel strength from the hands that have held you so long
Who cares where we go on this rutted old road
In a world that may say that we're wrong

Cause I know a love that will never grow old

'Kay, I know, Brokeback Mountain. CLICHE. But please, tell me it does not fit. Just one example.
