Set Fire to Our Bed: A Needlers Fanmix  

Quick note: Yay, finally, the Needlers have their own fanmix! It's long overdue... some of these songs have been sitting in my head for months. Credit to use of No Children goes to runawayblue and herosquad who have associated this song with the Needlers for a long time. More thanks goes to rudums @ tumblr, who uploaded some Needlers videos so I could make the back cover. The mix was a lot darker before... I took out some of the darkest songs, just because the mix felt weird. It's still quite eclectic, but quite enjoyable, I hope. Semi-chronological, in that the last few songs are more about death. As we should know, the Needlers apparently died in a murder-suicide.

Kiss with a Fist - Florence and the Machine
You hit me once,
I hit you back.
You gave a kick,
I gave a slap.
You smashed a plate over my head,
Then I set fire to our bed.

Sally: [crying] You stepped on my foot!
Dan: Oh, then maybe we should call an ambulance, because that's the noise a person makes when they break every bone in their foot.
Sally: You're embarassing yourself.
Dan: Oh, I'm embarassing myself?! Can I talk to you in the kitchen, please?!
Sally: Absolutely!

Let's Crash the Party - Ok Go
You're not the prettiest girl in town
I'm not the only boy with sullied clothes and a sullen frown
So to hell with valentines
To hell with perfume
To hell with chocolates, and picnics, and Sinatra tunes

Neil: Oh, uh, yeah, honey, I didn't know how to tell you this, but Sally and Dan Needler are coming.
Karen: Ugh, Sally and Dan Needler? They're going to fight all night.

Your Love is Like Las Vegas - The Thrills
Don't you know
You can't rewrite
Your own history
Cigarette Barbie

Your love is like a city I visited
Your love is like a city that burnt me good

Claire: So, are you still doing your painting, Dan?
Dan: No, Sally didn't really support that.
Sally: Yeah. Sally didn't want to live on the side of the highway.
Dan: I loved painting.
Sally: Then paint the bathroom!

How to be Dead - Snow Patrol
Why can't you shoulder the blame?
'Cause both my shoulders are heavy
From the weight of us both.
You're a big boy now so let's not talk about growth.
You've not heard a single word I have said...
Oh. My. God.

Dan: Are you guys learning the foxtrot?
Sally: What?
Dan: The foxtrot.
Sally: Foxbot?
Dan: Foxtrot.
Sally: Well, the first two times you said, "foxbot."
Dan: Yeah, honey, they're talking about ballroom dancing and I was talking about the mythical half-fox, half-robot.

I'm Your Villain - Franz Ferdinand
Oh, if I could laugh I'd love you
Oh, if I could smile at anything you said
We could be laughing lovers
I think you'd prefer to be miserable instead

Sally: Say something funny and I'll laugh.
Dan: Okay. How's this? Knock-knock.
Sally: Who's there?
Dan: I'm miserable every waking second!

You're So Damn Hot - Ok Go
You don't love me at all, but don't think that it bothers me at all.
You're a bad-hearted boy-trap, babydoll, but you're...
You're so damn hot.

Jerry: So, do you think you can help them?
Claire: Oh, no, no. That couple is beyond help.
Male Classmate: Hey, the Needlers are having sex in the coat room.

I Can't Decide - Scissor Sisters
Oh, I could throw you in a lake
Or feed you poisoned birthday cake
I won't deny I'm gonna miss you when you're gone
Oh, I could bury you alive
But you might crawl out with a knife
And kill me when I'm sleeping...

Sally: You know, you ruin every Fourth of July.
Dan: You ruin the fourth of everything!

The Funeral - Band of Horses
I'm coming up only to hold you under
I'm coming up only to show you wrong
And to know you is hard and we wonder
To know you all wrong, we were.

Sally: Oh, I have an idea, Dan. If the baby needs constant attention, maybe we can dress it up like your secretary.
Dan: Or a bottle of red wine.

No Children - Mountain Goats
I am drowning
There is no sign of land
You are coming down with me,
Hand in unlovable hand.

And I hope you die,
I hope we both die.

Dan: Can I get a scotch on the rocks?
Sally: Like our marriage.
Dan: And can I get that with a splash of water and, like, sixty sleeping pills? Thank you, that'd be great.

Into Dust - Ashtar Command
I could possibly be fading
Or have something more to gain
I could feel myself growing colder
I could feel myself under your fate
Under your fate

R.I.P Sally and Dan Needler.

You can get the mix here @ mediafire. Any issues with tracks, please let me know and I can reupload them for you. Enjoy!

Hey, thank you! (Of course, you didn't need to wait for me to post the link on Tumblr... the benefits of having a livejournal account...)

Let me know what you think of the songs, do they fit? Some are more suited than others, I reckon.
