Fanmix: Your own bespoke psychopath

I spent the last few days on this - somehow it was difficult to find the right balance between River's journey and the River/Doctor relationship, which is obviously at the core of her whole life. I tried to get mostly female voices, but couldn't always find cover versions by women.

Your own bespoke psychopath - The Life and Times of River Song
Single mp3s hosted on Mediafire.

1) Last Meeting - Doctor Who: "Silence in the Library/Forest of the Dead"

2) You Send Me Flying - Billie Myers
Definition of love on a cliff
A lemming has no alternative
I want to die in your arms
That's my suicide wish

3) Black-Dove (January) - Tori Amos
She was a january girl
She never let on how insane it was
In that tiny kinda scary house
..
You don't need a space ship
They don't know you've already lived
On the other side of the galaxy

4) Lonely Girl - Sandi Thom
She can captivate to hit the ice
But she never lets you in
In the dark she lingers
Like a tear without a soul
And I, what a lonely girl
Trying to find her way
In this mixed up messed up world

5) Crazy - Audiofeels (Feat. Katarzyna Roscinska)
And when you're out there
Without care,
Yeah, I was out of touch
But it wasn't because I didn't know enough
I just knew too much
Does that make me crazy?

6) Trouble - Over the Rhine
If you came to make trouble
Make me a double honey
I think it's good
What may seem complicated
Is overstated, downright misunderstood
Love will not be outdated
Maybe placated, but it's got to be good
We're far too serious
I think we could be
Such nefarious pyromantics

7) Best Imitation of Myself - Ben Folds Five
I juggle one handed
Do some magic tricks and
The best imitation of myself
Maybe I'm thinking myself in a hole
Wondering, who I am when I ought to know
Straighten up now time to go
Fool somebody else

8) Butterfly Spirit - Darius Danesh
You are free
You're not weak
One day you'll see
The way your love's your saving grace
You spread your wings and reach high
I wish that I could be like you
When you're bathing in the calm before
The storm
And then you soar with bird's wings

9) I'd Start a Revolution - Aimee Allen
all the things I do that you tell me not to
don't go walking in my shoes but you stumble don't you
four, five, six a.m.
I'm a all night girl
I'd start a revolution if I could
I start a revolution if I could get up, get up

10) Big Strong Girl - Deb Talan
you have just begun
the word has only left your lips
maybe in time, you will find
your arms are wrapped around the sun
don't push so hard against the world, no, no
you can't do it all alone
& if you could, would you really want to?
even though you're a big strong girl,
come on, come on, lay it down

11) Soldier - Ingrid Michaelson
I don't believe in anything but myself
But then you opened up a door
Now I start to believe in something else
...
And so it goes, this soldier knows
The battle with the heart isn't easily won
But it can be won

12) Hello sweetie - Doctor Who: all the damn time *g*

13) Medicine Man - The Hush Sound
Medicine man, you danced me across the country
Medicine man, you danced me across the sky
Medicine man, now my feet are dragging
Medicine man, can you hear my cry?

14) My Life In Reverse - Maximo Park
Some things are worth the bruises,
Some things are worth the hurt,
I like the way your face looks towards me,
Try just a little harder,
Try and make this time for me,
I like the way your glances deceive me,
I give myself away,
And yes, I meant to give you warning,
But what did I say?
You can call me in the morning,
I'm living my life in reverse

15) Cause = Time - Broken Social Scene
So take me down, down through this
Kill the common law that missed
This is the blood I love to share
Little pistols and companion halls
Desperation tentacles
I've been alone since '89

16) Chasing Cars - Natasha Bedingfield
All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see
I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

17) Let Me Take You There - Plain White T's
I know a place that we've forgotten
A place we won't get caught in
They won't know who we are (they won't know, won't know)
I know a place where we can hide out
And turn our hearts inside out
They won't know who we are
Let me take you there
I wanna take you there

18) First Day of My Life - steffaloo
Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go
...
So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

19) Perfect Memory - Remy Zero
But then this world slipped through my fingers
And even the sun seemed tired
I still cared
...
I still miss you
God I still miss you
I know that you are waiting there
I always thought that you'd come home
And I'll remember you
And the things that we used to do
And the things that we used to say
I'll remember you always

20) Clarity (acoustic) - Zedd ft. Foxes
Don't speak as I try to leave 'cause we both know what we'll choose
If you pull then I'll push too deep and I'll fall right back to you
...
If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love's insanity, why are you my clarity?

21) Touched - Matt (Youtube)
I, I looked into your eyes and saw
A world that does not exist
I looked into your eyes
And saw a world I wish I was in
I'll never find someone quite as touched as you
I'll never love someone quite the way that I loved you

22) Center of Attention - Jackson Waters
You think that you're the sun
The whole world revolves around you
The center of attention
And everything is drawn to you
But I'll take my time if you want to
And I'll give you what ever you need
And I'll wait a lifetime to give it to you
Give in to you

23) Kissing You - Des'ree
Touch me deep, pure and true
Give to me forever
'Cause I'm kissing you
...
Where are you now
'Cause I'm kissing you
I'm kissing you

24) Goodbye, Doctor - Doctor Who: "The Name of the Doctor"

Edit: I couldn't find a way to make this song fit into the mix, so you're getting it as a bonus, because I love it for River. 😉
