This is where your brain goes when you can’t sleep and are feeling feverish. And when you have lots and lots of melancholy music in your iTunes. So here's my list and song samples for DL. ;-D

I know foxxcub loves her some Keane and that’s the perfect soundtrack to her fics. Lush, beautiful, haunting, melancholy. (Her delicious snark -- is for another post. ;-D)
Song: This is the Last Time


uberaeryn is like Joseph Arthur - Spooky, epic, quiet and wrenching by turns. Gets into your soul and stays there. And *completely* slashy!
Song: Stumble and Pain

eponine119 is like Interpol - So gorgeous, but leaves you almost heartbroken. I could go with Radiohead here too, like "High and Dry," songs that just make you *weep.*
Song: NYC

philomel is like Radiohead - Elegant and complex and so pretty. ;-D
Song: How to Disappear Completely

cmere is like ... Prince? Smutty through and through. Always leaves you smiling. (Ok, that's facetious. She can make you cry too, but I plead ... feverish brain!)
Song: Darling Nikki

kho is like Queens of the Stone Age. Sexy, breathless. An alternate would be Weezer, cuz Rivers Cuomo is endlessly prolific, even if he doesn't publish all his tunes.
Song: Little Sister (Queens of the Stone Age)

And me, I’m... Muse? Melodrama, baby! ;-D Or maybe a good Seattle band like Soundgarden or Alice in Chains. Angsty. Dramatic. Brooding. C'est moi.
Song: 4th of July (Soundgarden)
Song: Falling Away With You (Muse)
Song: Time is Running Out (Muse)

This list is sadly not inclusive. There are several writers I also love but I just am not inspired enough right now to think who they might match up to, musically. So I hope no one is hurt or offended if they don't see their names here.

FB? Thoughts? Counter-arguments?

Really? You don't like Prince? My bad, love. :-/

I was trying to be complimentary. It's not the best fit, I know, but I wanted to do justice to how *HOTT* your fics are.

Heee. Prince is...not my kind of music at all, so all I'd really heard is Little Red Corvette. But after listening to the song I see what your point is :D :D :D

*tackles you to the ground and humps*

Awwww! First off, I'm honored to just be ON the list. And secondly, heh... that should be my nickname... I need an icon that says like... "needlessly prolific." or something. But I do have to admit, I'm not that familiar with Queens of the Stone Age. I've heard of them, and I dl'd the song you provided (and liked it a lot), but I don't know them very well. I dl'd like, every song you provided. I'd never heart Keane either. Pretty!

Hah! I said "endlessly prolific," not "needlessly." ;-D LOL.

Glad you liked the band I pegged you with. The melancholy stuff is harder to match up than teh smut! At least if you go by what music I have.

Keane is awful purty.

Keane is just unreal, I'm going to see them tomorrow, and luckily it's supposed to be warm here, the concert's outdoors.

Great choices for songs..this reminds me..must do song list!

*is insanely happy to be Keane* <3

Aw, I love being snuggly angsty British bands ;)

What made you pick that particular song? It's not my favorite, but then again, I love all their stuff, so it's all good. I should send you "The Way You Want It", which philomel sent me--it's classic Keane angst! I saved a few Keane pics awhile back to make myself some icons, and now I want to make one with my name on it, hee ;D

*snogs you and goes back to work*

^____^


I just found that song recently and really liked it, so I was all, "Oooh, shiny!" ;-D I don't have "Bedshaped" (which I also love). It's just so pretty and I mean that in the best way.

It's funny that you liked Audioslave's "Getaway Car" so much since that wasn't one of my faves. But now it's growing on me.

I'll gladly take more Keane. ;-D

(sloppy sick kiss)
