Fanmix: The Story of Us

Note: The first fan mix I made in a long while, for and . I tried very hard to tell the story of a relationship over the years, of its ups and downs, happiness and hurt, until the final realization that, no matter what, they belong to each other.

Billy & Dom - The Story of Us [a fictional timeline in music]

soundtrack: front soundtrack: back

1) Me and My Shadow - Frank Sinatra & Sammy Davis Jr.
Me and my shadow
We're closer than pages that stick in a book
We're closer than ripples that play in a brook
Strolling down the avenue
Wherever you find him, you'll find me, just look

2) Idlewild - In Remote Part / Scottish Fiction
So I'll wait until I find the remote part of your heart
When no where else will let us choose a comfortable start
And even if the breath between us smells of alcohol
Call it confusion in the best way possible

3) Jack Johnson - Better Together
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,
And there is no, no song I could sing
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing
We're better together.

4) Robbie Williams - Beyond The Sea
We'll meet beyond the shore
We'll kiss just as before
And happy we'll be beyond the sea
And never again I'll go sailing

5) Bedroom Eyes - Dancing Under Influence
We run through these streets and for once reminisce
The moments we've seized - not the chances we've missed
As I'm quoting Ricky Gervais you're aglow
Tonight at your place we'll embrace in stereo
But faith will not leave us like youth will one day
If life lets you down, I will make it OK

6) The BellRays - Have A Little Faith In Me
They say time
knows where we're going.
I wish time
would stop right here.
You're afraid to lose your love.
I don't blame you.

Hey baby
Have a little faith in me

7) Spoon - The Ghost of You Lingers
My life
So light
Would you settle this part?
The ghost of you lingers
And leaves
I always think about it
Oh, would you calm me down?

8) Steve Earle - You're Still Standin' There
I've been down a thousand trails I've never walked before
I found out that without fail, they lead me to your door
And the world keep turning round and round
It leaves me hanging in the air
My heart keeps turning upside down
And you're still standin' there

9) Gavin DeGraw - Just Friends
You know I, I trusted you
When you were just friends
At least that's what you said
Now I know better from his fingers in your hair
I'll forgive you for what you've done
If you say that I'm the one

10) James Blunt - Goodbye My Lover
And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.

11) Dominic Monaghan - Shadow
You needed some space, huh?
I loved you.
Now you're gone.
And I see you everywhere.

12) Beecake - Friends and Lovers
And she remembers kissing after dark
And the way he smiled
And played so wild
And the way her children laughed
And now she prays her days won't last forever
'cause she says there's no life when you've
Got no friends and lovers

13) Dashboard Confessional - Nightswimming
The photograph on the dashboard, taken years ago,
Turned around backwards so the windshield shows.
Every streetlight reveals the picture in reverse.
Still, it's so much clearer.
You, I thought I knew you.
You I cannot judge.
You, I thought you knew me,
this one laughing quietly underneath my breath.

14) Duran Duran - What Happens Tomorrow
And nobody knows what's gonna happen tomorrow
So don't let go, now we've come this far
Hope I have peace
Understand me
you're never alone
We've got to believe
it'll be alright in the end

15) Switchfoot - Learning To Breathe
Yesterday left my head kicked in
I never thought I could fall like that
Never knew that I could hurt this bad
I'm learning to breathe
I'm learning to crawl
I'm finding that You and
You alone can break my fall
I'm living again, awake and alive
I'm dying to breathe in these abundant skies

16) Susan Enan - Bring On The Wonder
I fell through the cracks at the end of our street
Let's go to the beach, let the sand run through our feet
Bring on the wonder
Bring on the song
I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long

17) Vega 4 - Life Is Beautiful
When you run into my arms,
We steal a perfect moment.
Let the monsters see you smile,
Let them see you smiling.
Do I hold you too tightly?
When will the hurt kick in?
Life is beautiful, but it's complicated.
We barely make it.
We don't need to understand,
There are miracles, miracles.

18) Eric Clapton - Get Lost [theme song from The Story of Us]
Cause I am nothing without you.
Why should we have taken so long
To be looking inside of our mind?
Everything we tried went wrong.
Are we worried 'bout what we might find?
I'm sorry,
But can I say I'm sorry?
If I hurt you,
You know it hurts me too.
Cause I am nothing without you.

This is the most elaborate mix I've made in a long time - it took me about 5 hours to tell the story I wanted to tell, so it was quite a labour of love for my two boys... However, I couldn't help but re-use my ultimate Billy/Dom 'theme song' by Idlewild. 🙂
