mojotastic: (GG- Serena's hair cures all ills)
Add MemoryShare This Entry
So! To celebrate the return of my favorite flossy show tonight I decided to finally post up this fanmix. I'm not even exaggerating when I say that I've had parts of this fanmix on my computer since s1. It takes me FOREVER to post fanmixes because a.) I'm lazy and b.) I'm a big weirdo that has to make sure every song ~fits~.


Ain't Born Typical {A Serena Fanmix}



But putting off posting might have worked out for the best because if there's anyone who has been holding it down this season, it's been Serena. She's stolen polo horses. She's gone toe to toe with Tyra Banks and lived. She fake dated fake!R.Patz. She lost Carter to texas justice and a BOAT. (It's not like that T-Pain video Carter! You're not going to be wearing flippy floppys and riding dolphins!) She dated a married senator and survived a WOLF ATTACK. (~*IMPRINTZ*~) She pushed Blair's face into a cake. She and Nate were briefly the world's worst card sharks. Serena has basically pwned the first half of this season.

So without further ado....fanmix time:



01. URA Fever- The Kills
Dancing on the legs of a new-born pony
Left right left right
Keep it up son
Go ahead and have her
Go ahead and leave her
You only ever had her
When you were a fever

I am a fever
I am a fever
I ain't born typical

(I don't know why but this song has always been my ultimate Serena song.)

02. Sick Muse- Metric
She said: I'm with stupid. Money is a sick muse
Pull your little arrows out and let me live my life
The one I gotta lead, all the blondes of fantasies

And we looked at them eleven ways
You said, "look at me," and looked away
And you wrote the song I wanna play
I'll write you harmony in C

Everybody, everybody just wanna fall in love
Everybody, everybody just wanna play the lead


03. Between the Bars- Elliott Smith
Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't but you might
The potential you'll be that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make
Drink up with me now
And forget all about the pressure of days
Do what I say and I'll make you okay
And drive them away
The images stuck in your head

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still


04. Turned to Real Life- Shiny Toy Guns
Eyes are magic
See right through me
Makes me feel like
A girl in a fantasy
Turned to real life
--
Makes me feel like
A girl in a fantasy
Turned to real life
I'm a believer
For the first time
I can be beautiful
A girl in a fantasy
Turned to real life


05. Girl- Tori Amos
She's been everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own
Everybody else's girl
Maybe one day she'll be her own


06. Queen and I- Gym Class Heroes
I love it how she breathes booze in the mornin'
Man, it's so sexy how she can't remember last night
I made a fatal mistake letting her drink again
But who the hell am I to tell her how to live her life?
--
'Cause baby girl's a queen
But the queen is just a pawn with a bunch of fancy moves
And she's made me a fiend
I'm going through withdrawals 'cause I got nothing to lose


07. Bore- Emily Haines
You like my hair and that's all that matters
--
It's not crazy anymore, every busride's such a bore
I miss that shiny downtown whore that I was before


08. Manhattan- Kings of Leon
I like to dance all night,
summons the day,
but that's how I play,
yeah that's how I play,
I said who are you?
don't matter who you are,
so we dance all night,
and dance all day

I say,
I say

We're gonna fuel the fire,
gonna stoke it up,
we're gonna sip this wine,
and pass the cup,
who needs avenues,
who needs reservoirs,
we're gonna show this town,
how to kiss these stars


09. Believe- The Bravery
There's a smell of stale fear that's reeking from our skins.
The drinking never stops because the drinks absolve our sins
We sit and grow our roots into the floor
But what are we waiting for?


So give me something to believe
Cause I am living just to breathe
And I need something more
To keep on breathing for
So give me something to believe


10. Dance in the Dark- Lady Gaga
Baby, I’m a free bitch
I’m a free bitch

Some girls won’t dance to the beat of the track
She won’t walk away
But she won’t look back
She looks good
But her boyfriend says she’s a mess
She’s a mess
She’s a mess
Now the girl is stressed

Baby loves to dance in the dark
‘Cuz when he’s lookin’
She falls apart
Baby loves to dance in the dark (Tellem’, girls)
--
She looks good
But her boyfriend says she’s a tramp
She’s a tramp
She’s a vamp
But she still does her dance
She’s a tramp
She’s a vamp
But she still kills the dance


11. Animal- Miike Snow
But I'm still trying to make my mind up
Am I free or am I tied up?

I change shapes just to hide in this place but I'm still, I'm still an animal
Nobody knows it but me when I slip yeah I slip
I'm still an animal

There is a hole and I tried to fill up with money, money , money
But it gets bigger to your hopes is always

Running,running,running


12. Creator- Santogold
Got no need for the fancy things
All the attention that it brings
Tell me no, I say yes, I was chosen
And I will deliver the explosion
--
Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards


13. Hurricane Drunk- Florence and the Machine
No home,
I don't want shelter,
No calm,
Nothing to keep me from the storm,
And you can't hold me down,
'Cause I belong to the hurricane,
It's gonna blow us all away.

I'm going out,
I'm gonna drink myself to death


14. Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down- Interpol
When she walks down the street
She knows there's people watching
The building fronts are just fronts
To hide the people watching her

She was all right because the sea was so airtight, she broke away
She is all right but she can't come out tonight, she broke away

WORD. To be honest, I pretty much lost interest in GG in the beginning of the season. But then I saw pics of TEAM GOLDEN-RETRIEVER and I decided to watch the rest. And now I have so much love for Serena. She's taken over as my fave character. I'm even thinking about making a N/S fanmix... and then I'll put their heads on Golden-Retrievers who are surrounded by butterflies. DON'T JUDGE ME. It looks great in my head.

I LOVE THIS FANMIX! Such great songs! THE KILLS!!!!!

Team Golden Retriever is totally my FAVE! They are so pretty and happy and slutty and I love them so much! I think Serena has maybe become my number one fave this season too. She is just so fab and insane and I love her.

O.M.G!!! Please do this! I'M NOT EVEN KIDDING BB I NEED THIS FANMIX AND MANIP IN MY LIFE!

Thanks! I hope you like it!

Thanks! Enjoy!

I love this! URA Fever is one of my favourite Serena songs, as are some of the others you've used here. I can't wait to listen to the ones I've never heard! Thanks for this. :)

Yay! It's good to see other people associate that song with her. It's always been my ultimate Serena song. :)

Thanks so much! I'm honestly loving how great Serena has been this season. She's been getting so many interesting storylines. Plus she stole a polo horse! Gotta love her.

Imma grab this like whoa!

I'm the same way with fanmixes. Like, I have multiple semi-completed fanmixes on my computer from a year ago that I kinda know I'm never gonna finish but here they stay.

Anyway, this looks good. And you found me my *new favorite song*....soooo.

Thanks! It's good to know I'm not the only one who is totally weird about fanmixes. Like I realize that no one (but me) puts this much thought and effort into actually analyzing the song choices. So I have all these sort of finished fanmixes lying around on my computer too.

Anyway, this looks good. And you found me my *new favorite song*....soooo.

Isn't Florence so great? I can't believe how obsessed I still am with her CD even months after I first heard it. So good!

This is awesome!

Serena really has had quite the epic season!
 
posted by [identity profile] mojotastic.livejournal.com at 05:37pm on 11/03/2010
Thanks!

Serena has been like the definition of epic this year. She survived a wolf attack and stole a polo horse! Oh Serena, you are awesome.

Great song choices for Serena. I snagged the zip. Thanks for uploading.

Thanks! I'm glad I finally posted this, if I waited any longer it would probably end up a two-part fanmix. lol!

Hope you enjoy! :)

Loving this (even though Blair's been the most awesome for me this season, so far) be back later to download, because holy whoa can you put a mix together. ;)
 
posted by [identity profile] mojotastic.livejournal.com at 05:39pm on 11/03/2010
Thanks so much bb! I really hope you like it. I end up always putting way, WAY more thought and effort into fanmixes than is probably necessary or healthy. lol!
 
posted by [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/_touched/ at 06:07pm on 11/03/2010
Haha, you're welcome. I already know I'm gonna love it, because it's got awesome music. I know what you mean, I do the same too. It takes me forever to finish a fanmix, because of this.
 
posted by [identity profile] pinkspots.livejournal.com at 02:11pm on 09/03/2010
YES! A mix for our favorite bb! I can tell from the titles that this is PERFECT!
 
posted by [identity profile] mojotastic.livejournal.com at 06:04pm on 11/03/2010
Serena needs her own shiny happy mix! And you know I managed to work in both Metric AND Emily Haines! Plus in the Emily Haines song there is actually a line about HAIR so obviously it is perfect!

i'm now listening to the fanmix. And I should say, that it's really amazing!!! Songs are great! I'm so enjoying this now)))

I think I only ever saw snippets of Gossip Girl, but I liked some of the artists you chose, so I hope you don't mind terribly if I snag. :)

Thank you! ♥
 
posted by [identity profile] mojotastic.livejournal.com at 06:06pm on 11/03/2010
I don't mind at all! I used a lot of my favorite artists so totally don't blame you for snagging. :) Gossip Girl is totally fun crack if you ever want to try it out btw!
