So, recently adellyna had a mix exchange, and someone put up the request for a 'non-emo sociopath mix.' Damn straight, I jumped on that shit.
I'll just go ahead and put up the caveat now: I am not actually a murdering pyschopath. But I do love horror movies! And it turns out I have a number of songs in my musical selection that fits that M.O. pretty well. And, uh, if anyone else is interested, you can download it, too! Really, it's quite a cheerful-sounding mix, in my opinion.
I'll just ignore the chirping crickets and move on.
Check out this motherfucking cover adellyna made, because she is my savior and a Photoshop goddess, whereas I barely know what a layer is. I am like a caveman, seriously.
Damn, that is some insanely menacing and yet perfectly bland and placid shit. I am in awe, you guys. MARVEL AT THAT COVER.
Anyway, for those who are interested, here's the playlist and bits of the lyrics. Basically, the album's meant to be a progression: from social disconnect, to an interest in murder, to being hospitalized, to picking out victims, and then to going cheerfully insane and actually killing them. Wow, it sounds dark when I lay it out, but seriously, the songs are all pretty upbeat!
Isobel – Björk
In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Use It – The New Pornographers
since i was a child
just grew there wild
so heads down thumbs up
four beats from soft
Gin & Milk – Dirty Pretty Things
You won't really see me
I live in old movies
Cloaked tightly in sin
So they wont come in
Louis XIV – Louis XIV
Well I'm a portal into blue collar human psychology
I need a fix i don't need no apology
Please Don’t Talk About Murder – Ben Harper
You're the first one to get there
And always the last one to leave
You're the first one to chuckle
But the last one to grieve
Handlebars – The Flobot
My reach is global
My tower secure
My cause is noble
My power is pure
Frontier Psychiatrist – Avalanches
oh mr kirk, i'm as upset as you to learn of dexter's truancy
but surely, expulsion is not the answer!
i'm afraid expulsion is the only answer
it's the opinion of the entire staff that dexter is criminally insane
Bright Young Thing – Albert Hammond, Jr
Picked up a smoke then you drag a little
I wanna choke so you won't belittle
Everyone knows that you do over and over over and over again
Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf – The Killers
Give me one more chance tonight
And I swear I'll make it right
But you ain't got time for this
And that wreckin' bell is ringin'
And I'm not satisfied
Razor Blade – The Strokes
Oh no, my feelings are more important than yours.
Oh, drop dead, I don't care, I won't worry.
Let it go.
I Can’t Decide – The Scissor Sisters
My heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride
Unsolved Mysteries – Animal Collective
But I feel like I've got to duck
When you look at me with your green eyes
When you look at me with your black eyes
And you look at me with your dead eyes
Son of Sam – Elliot Smith
I'm not uncomfortable, feeling weird
Lonely leered, options disappear
But I know what to do
Fake Palindromes – Andrew Bird
she's got an old death kit
she's been meaning to use
blood in her eyes in her eyes for you
she's got blood in her eyes for you
Skulls (Misfits Cover) – The Lemonheads
demon i am and flesh i peel
to see your skin turned inside out,
'cause gotta have you on my wall
gotta have you on my wall
Skinned – Blind Melon
I'll make a shoehorn outta your shin
I'll make a lampshade of durable skin
And oh, don't you know that I'm always feelin' able
When I'm sittin' home and I'm carving out your navel
