Soundtrack Repost: Character Mini-Soundtracks, Part 1

Since I'm testing my FIOS connection, I thought I'd do some re-uploading of soundtracks that got trashed when SaveFile went down and wiped out all my projects.

The Character Mini-Soundtrack Project was, frankly perfect, especially since it took me 2 days to upload all of the tracks.

This time around, the problem is that a computer crash, haphazard labeling, and random back-ups means I'm actually on a treasure hunt to find all of the tracks. Then I decided to actually label them properly.

It's harder work than I thought.

That said, I've got 4 fandoms and 39 songs. I only had to make one substitution ('Oh How the Years Go By' by Amy Grant has been swapped out for the version by Vanessa Williams). All in all, not bad.

Fandoms included in this post:
  • Angel the Series
  • Babylon 5
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Angel the Series

Somewhere Down the Road by Barry Manilow
We had the right love
At the wrong time
Maybe we've only just begun,
Maybe the best is yet to come...

Hero by Nickelback
Someone told me love will all save us.
But how can that be, look what love gave us.
A world full of killing, and blood-spilling
that won't never came.
And they say that a hero can save us.
I’m not gonna stand here and wait.
I'll hold onto the wings of the eagles.
Watch as we all fly away.

End of the World As We Know It by Great Big Sea
That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane —
Lenny Bruce is not afraid.
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn —
World serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
reverent in the right —
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light, feeling pretty psyched.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it.
It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

Lorne (Krevlornswath of The Deathwalk Clan)
Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World by Israel Kamakawiwo'ole
Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
And the dream that you dare to...
Oh why, oh why can't I?
Well I see trees of green, and red roses too
I'll watch them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself:
What a wonderful world...

This Charming Man by The Smiths
I would go out tonight,
But I haven't got a stitch to wear.
This man said,
"It's gruesome
That someone so handsome should care."
A jumped-up pantry boy,
Who never knew his place.
He said, "Return the ring."
He knows so much about these things;
He knows so much about these things

Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams
Hell is gone and heaven's here,
There's nothing left for you to fear,
So shake your arse come over here.
Now scream.
I'm a burning effigy
Of everything I used to be.
You're my rock of empathy, my dear,
So come on let me entertain you
Let me entertain you.

Wesley Wyndham-Pryce
Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood by Santa Esmerelda
If I seem edgy
I want you to know
That I never meant to take it out on you.
Life has its problems
And I got my share
And that's one thing I never meant to do
'Cause I love you.
Baby, don't you know I'm just human
And I've got thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I find myself, oh Lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done.
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Mr. Brightside by The Killers
He takes off her dress now.
Let me go,
And I just can't look.
It's killing me
And taking control.
Turning saints into the sea
Turning through sick lullaby
Joking on your alibi
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
I'm Mr. Brightside.

Cigarettes & Chocolate Milk by Rufus Wainwright
And then theres those other things,
Which for several reasons we won't mention
Everything about them is a little bit stranger, a little bit harder,
A little bit deadly.
Its not very smart
Tends to make one part
So brokenhearted.

Babylon 5

Michael Garibaldi

Theme from The Animaniacs
We're An-i-man-i-acs
We have play for play contracts
We're zany to the max
There's baloney in our slacks
We're An-i-man-ee
Totally and zany
Here's the shows namey
Those are the facts!

Everybody Knows by Leonard Cohen
Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That's how it goes
Everybody knows

Monsters by Something for Kate
Yeah I was hiding away under water
Waiting for distance and buying some time
Trying to be two hundred thousand years younger
So I could excuse myself from human kind
'Cos I don't want to be a container
Or a bastard with a ten page disclaimer
But these monsters spin me around
Get me down
Just try and shut me out

Project Page for the Michael Garibaldi Mini-Soundtrack

Anthem from Chess (Original London Cast)

And you ask why I love her
Through wars, death, and despair?
She is the constant,
We who don't care.
And you wonder will I leave her — but how?
I cross over borders, but I'm still there now!
How can I leave her?
Where would I start?
My land's only borders lie
Around my heart.

We Shall Be Free by Garth Brooks
This ain't comin from no prophet,
Just an ordinary man.
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand,
When the last child cries for a crust of bread,
When the last man dies for just words that he said,
When there's shelter over the poorest head,
We shall be free.

People Get Ready by The Impressions
People get ready, there's a train comin'.
You don't need no baggage, you just get on board.
All you need is faith to hear the diesels hummin'.
You don't need no ticket, you just thank the Lord.
People get ready, there's a train to Jordan,
Picking up passengers coast to coast,
Faith is the key, open the doors and board them.
There's hope for all among those who loved the most,
There ain't no room for the hopeless sinner,
Whom would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own.
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
For there is no hiding place against the Kingdom's throne.

Susan Ivanova
I Am a Rock (Accoustic) by Paul Simon (pre-Simon & Garfunkle)
Dont talk of love,
But Ive heard the words before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I wont disturb the slumber of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.
I am a rock,
I am an island.

Five Candles by Jars of Clay
I remember you said
Love was more than your good intentions
Empty boxes on the floor
Things I never asked you for
I pray that when the wick is burned
You would say that it's all about love
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open
You were there when I needed you
You were there when the skies broke wide, wide open

Move On from Sunday in the Park with George by Bernadette Peters & Mandy Patinkin
Stop worrying where you're going.
Move on.
If you can know where you're going,
You've gone.
Just keep moving on.
I chose, and my world was shaken.
So what?
The choice may have been mistaken,
But choosing was not.
You have to move on.
Look at what you want,
Not at where you are,
Not at what you'll be.
Look at all the things you've done for me...

Project Page for the Susan Ivanova Mini-Soundtrack

Battlestar Galactica

Gaius Baltar
Mr. Self-Destruct by Nine Inch Nails

I am the voice inside your head, and I control you
I am the lover in your bed, and I control you
I am the sex that you provide, and I control you
I am the hate you try to hide, and I control you
I take you where you want to go
I give you all you need to know
I drag you down, I use you up
Mr. Self-destruct
I speak religion's message clear, and I control you
I am denial guilt and fear, and I control you

Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure
That burns a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
Um ba ba bay
Um ba ba bay
Dee day duh
Ee day duh
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming get me out!
Tomorrow takes me higher
Pressure on people
People on streets

Satellite by The Hooters
Hey satellite man, your time has come,
Your word received by everyone.
And should you fall, well, that's okay,
You love the ones that you betray.
So jump in the river and learn to swim,
God's gonna wash away all your sins.
And when at last you see the light,
God's gonna buy you a satellite.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Alexander "Xander" Harris
If You Ever Did Believe by Stevie Nicks
I continue to build a wall
You were so strong
I fell to my knees
And I don't think I can handle this at all
One more night
I'd like to lie and hold you
Yes and feel
To make you smile,
I'd like to be there for you
Have you forgotten me?

Hero (Live) by Pat McGee
She'll be your hero, when the lightning falls,
Tend to your head now, then break down the walls;
Promise you heaven, then drag you through hell.
She'll never look back
You might as well.
You'll be dragging this dragon around your life.
She's raging inside you,
Looks like another fight.
Back to bed and burned out, like a flame at both ends,
Scorching and thirsting for some time to mend.
Never thought much about it
And you never really do,
'Til the day comes she's leaving you.

Send It Up by Vertical Horizon
I'm all right by the way
Everyone saves the day
Sometimes I feel it
Send it up
Ah, send it up now
Send it up
Send it up to me

Project Page for the Alexander "Xander" Harris Mini-Soundtrack

Buffy Summers
Something's Always Wrong by Toad (Accoustic) the Wet Sprocket

(Again we fail)
It seems we meet
(Meet and mend)
In the spaces
(In the spaces safe)
In between
(Between intents)
We always say
(Said too much)
It won't be long
(Long been gone)
But something's always wrong

Alleluia by Dar Williams
I'm up in heaven now they say I'm here to stay,
Where the clouds are really puffy and the angels sing every day,
Alleluia Alleluia Alleluia, Wo-oh...
The cafeteria's got everything it's gonna drive me mad,
'Cause it looks just like a big Hawaiian party that my mother had.
It's like the worst Elvis film I've ever seen,
Technicolor luau all on technicolor green.
There's camping trips and donkey rides and singing round the fire.
And they signed me up for surfing,
But they can't get me in the choir
Alleluia Alleluia Alleluia, Wo-oh...

Into the Fire by Sarah McLachlan
And into the fire.
I'm reunited.
Into the fire,
I am the spark.
Into the fire,
I yearn for comfort...
I will stare into the sun until its light doesn't blind me.
I will walk into the fire until its heat doesn't burn me,
And I will feed the fire.

Project Page for the Buffy Summers Mini-Soundtrack

Daniel "Oz" Osbourne
Haunted by The Pogues
In the middle of nowhere
Didn't have nothing to do that day
Didn't wanna do nothing anyway
You got a way of walking
You got a way of talking
And there's something about you
And now I know I never ever
Want to be without you

Beast in Me (Live) by Martin Sexton
Every single time I come to this town
It brings out the worst in me
Decadence dries deep in the root of mine eyes
To bring out a thirst in me
Bust in to Burbank and buy a big beef jerky on Barham
Stare into the stockyard
Life in this car out on the road
Can be so easy
Then in the evening time
There's a welcome sight
In my lazy dream
I'm still hoping to find
The best in me is the beast in me
The best in me is the beast in me

Hellhound on My Trail by Eric Clapton
I got to keep moving, I got to keep moving
Blues falling down like hail, blues falling down like hail
Mmm, blues falling down like hail, blues falling down like hail
And the day keeps on remindin' me, there's a hellhound on my trail
Hellhound on my trail, hellhound on my trail.

Faith Lehane
Dirty Water by the Standells (Note: This song references the Boston Strangler)
Yeah, down by the river
Down by the banks of the River Charles
(Aw, that's what's happenin' baby)
That's where you'll find me
Along with lovers, muggers, and thieves
(Aw, but they're cool people)
Well I love that dirty water
Oh, Boston, you're my home

We Threw Gasoline on the Fire and Now We Have Stumps for Arms and No Eyebrows by NOFX
A word describing something dumb
You create to desecrate
The villain I've become
A prophet
Not to be made but heard
Speaks in tongues and sarcasms
To me its glee, to you absurd
You don't, know me let alone my intent
Actions do not always self represent
I dont feel urgency in explaining
My conscience opaquely clear

Pain (Slayer Mix) by Four Star Mary
Do not (fuck) with me
Loaded, loaded up this gun
There's a killer in me
Hoping, hope that you're the one
But you always run away
When I come around
I don't mind the day
I'll track you down
And terrify
I can't sleep

Project Page for the Faith Lehane Mini-Soundtrack

Rupert Giles
Spooky by Dusty Springfield
You always keep me guessing
I never seem to know what you are thinking
And if a girl looks at you
It’s for sure your little eye will be a-winking
I get confused, I never know where I stand
And then you smile and hold my hand
Love is kind of crazy with a spooky little boy like you

Patterns by Simon & Garfunkel
From the moment of my birth
To the instant of my death,
There are patterns I must follow
Just as I must breathe each breath.
Like a rat in a maze
The path before me lies,
And the pattern never alters
Until the rat dies.

Landslide (Live) by Fleetwood Mac
Well, I've been afraid of changing
'Cause I've built my life around you.
But time makes you bolder,
Children get older
I'm getting older, too.

Project Page for the Rupert Giles Mini-Soundtrack

Willow Rosenberg
Supermodels by Kendall Payne
Well think it over once or twice
What lasts the longest in this life?
Character, or rock-hard thighs?
In the end do you believe
That beauty lies in what you see?
'Cause if you do, then baby you been deceived.
Well, me and B, indeed we hate supermodels.
It's not that we know any one personally.
It's just that I'm tired of being compared.

Blue on Black by Kenny Wayne Shepherd
Blue on black
Tears on a river
Push on shove
Don't mean much
Joker on Jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead man's touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn't mean a thing
Won't bring you back
Blue on black.

Oh How the Years Go By by Vanessa Williams
As the years go by
There were times we stumbled
They thought they had us down
But we came around
How we rolled and rambled
We got lost and we got found
Now we're back on solid ground
We took everything
All our times would bring
In this world of dangers
'Cause when your heart is strong
You know you're not alone
In this world of strangers

Project Page for the Willow Rosenberg Mini-Soundtrack
