Fandom: Axis Powers Hetalia
Title: When the Day Met the Night
Timeframe: Nothing really in particular, for once! I gave up on chronological order for this one. ^^;
Warnings: Involves a Hetalia OC and my incredibly dorky music taste. (… Again. >__>) You have been warned. |D
Notes: This is the Dorky And Silly Mix for these two (of course, coming free with the recommended pre-requisite amount of sap), because the sun is shining outside, it's the lazy August days of summer, and this fandom needs more lighter stuff about. /wat is this logic/ I kind of like it better than the last one I did for them. ^^; It’s a much easier size to manage than my last one, at any rate, and I hope you guys enjoy. :> also… yeah, those are their national flowers on the cover art. >_>; I decided to get ~*~abstract~*~ with it, ye gods everyone run.
Panic! At The Disco – When the Day Met the Night
This song is so wonderfully dorky. Also, this totally is the story of how they met in song, with a bit of poetic license and 100% added tea.
When the moon fell in love with the sun//All was golden in the sky//All was golden when the day met the night
When the sun found the moon//She was drinking tea in a garden//Under the green umbrella trees//In the middle of summer//When the moon found the sun//He looked like he was barely hanging on//But her eyes saved his life//In the middle of summer
So he said, "Would it be all right//If we just sat and talked for a little while//If in exchange for your time//I give you this smile?"//So she said, "That's okay//As long as you can make a promise//Not to break my little heart//Or leave me all alone in the summer."
Well he was just hanging around//Then he fell in love//And he didn't know how//But he couldn't get out//Just hanging around//Then he fell in love
Elton John – Your Song
I used this song on a mix, I am now consigned forever to the dorky sappy corner of shame. Anyway, this is both of them, really.
I hope you don't mind//I hope you don’t mind//That I put down in words//How wonderful life is while you're in the world… //Anyway the thing is what I really mean//Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
Feist – 1234
So actually the lyrics to this song… don’t fit all that much at all in general. :’D But it sounds right and this is silly!mix, so it’s staying on here.
1234, tell me that you love me more//Sleepless long nights, that is what my youth was for//Old teenage hopes//Are alive at your door
Day One – Bedroom Dancing
England, about Portugal. … other than that, I have no excuses for this one? 8D;
This girl that I thought I knew so well//Didn't know her until we're at the hotel and//We're on the dancefloor//By the seashore//She said "these nights we dance together//Is what I live for" I said "What about before//Before these nights?"//She said "Ask me no questions, and I'll tell you no lies"
Lady Gaga – Again Again
And speaking of bedroom dancing… this one’s England’s POV again, l-lol. ALSO HUSH this Gaga song has always been my crack song for them, and it’s actually a decent song. ;3; Also I seem to have a lot of songs to do with eye colour on this mix.
Last week when I was sad//You said that you knew//My eyes change from kinda green//To kinda blue//When you're 'round//I lose myself inside your mouth//You've got brown eyes//Like no one else//Baby make it to me//Again and again//Again, again, again, again//Never stop again and again//Again, again, a-a-again, again//Never stop
Coldplay – Green Eyes
Like I said, eye colour. 8Db This one’s Portugal.
Honey you are the sea//Upon which I float//And I came here to talk//I think you should know//That green eyes//you’re the one that I wanted to find//And anyone who//tried to deny you must be out of their mind
Tristan Prettyman – Electric
This has been one of my songs for them for ages and I finally get to use it! /dances/ England’s POV. ^^
He’s electric//And I can’t forget it//Yeah he’s electric//Don’t forget it
Sometimes he fills me up//Sometimes it’s such a shock//This is more than I bargained for//More than I would have bought//You still look at me//With well acquainted eyes//As the memories come flooding back//In a field of butterflies
Suzanne Vega – World Before Columbus
Portugal, to England. I swear that boy gets so dere.
If your love were taken from me//Every colour would be black and white//It would be as flat as the world before Columbus//That's the day that I lose half my sight
Those men who lust for land//And for riches strange and new//Who love those trinkets of desire//Oh they never will have you//And they'll never know the gold//Or the copper in your hair//How could they weigh the worth//Of you so rare
Feist – Honey Honey
Technically, this could be both of them. But this is more the sort of thing Portugal would come out with in one of his melancholy moments, to be honest. ^^;
Honey honey, up in the trees//Fill the flowers deep in his dreams//Eat them out to sea by the east//Honey honey, food for the bees
… Even if he wanted to, d’you think he’d come back?//Would he come back?
Honey honey out on the sea//In the Doldrums waiting for me//Me in my boat searching for he//Honey honey, food for the bees
The Jam – English Rose
LOL THIS SONG. I HAD TO. /dodges the fruit and rocks
No matter where I roam//I will return to my English Rose//For no bonds can ever tempt me from she//I’ve sailed the seven seas//Flown the whole blue sky//But I’ve returned with haste to where my//Love does lie
Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me
This is the obligatory “Big Fight Era” song for this mix. Portugal in the first verse and title/tagline, England in the second verse and choruses.
Hey, slow it down//Whataya want from me? Whataya want from me?//Yeah, I'm afraid//Whataya want from me? Whataya want from me?//There might have been a time//When I would give myself away//Oh once upon a time, I didn't give a damn//But now, here we are//So whataya want from me? Whataya want from me?
Just don't give up//I'm working it out//Please don't give in, I won't let you down//It messed me up, need a second to breathe//Just keep coming around
Yeah, it's plain to see//That baby you're beautiful//And there's nothing wrong with you//It's me, I'm a freak//But thanks for loving me//’Cause you're doing it perfectly//There might have been a time//When I would let you slip away//I wouldn't even try//But I think you could save my life
Feist – Brandy Alexander
This song is adorable. Also completely true and could be from either point of view. I seem to have a lot of Feist on this mix. But in my defence, her voice has always had a certain Portugal quality to it for me.
He's my Brandy Alexander//Always gets me into trouble//But that's another matter//Brandy Alexander
Though I know what I love most of him//I'm walking on needles and pins//My addiction to the worst of him//The low moon helps me sing
I'm his Brandy Alexander//Always get him into trouble//I hide that I'm flattered//Brandy Alexander
Brad Paisley – Little Moments
The song that started off this whole mix! It can’t be described as anything other than bloody adorable. Also, this is Stars’s fault for introducing me to it. :> ♥
Well that's just like last year on my birthday//She lost all track of time and burnt the cake//And every smoke detector in the house was goin' off//And she was just about to cry until I took her in my arms//And I tried not to let her see me laugh//Yeah I live for little moments like that
I know she's not perfect but she tries so hard for me//(And I thank God that she isn't, 'cause how boring would that be?)
The Weepies – Somebody Loved
Nights when the heat had gone out//We danced together alone//Cold turned our breath into clouds//We never said what we were dreaming of//But you turned me into somebody loved
Paramore – The Only Exception
I’m not really sure why I put this at the end of the mix except that it seems to fit here, somehow. It’s mostly England, anyway. ^^
Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts//And we've got to find other ways//to make it alone or keep a straight face//And I've always lived like this, keeping a comfortable distance//And up until now I swore to myself//that I'm content with loneliness//'cause none of it was ever worth the risk.
But you are the only exception.

EDIT: Ahhh, I thought I'd caught all of them and converted them, but Stars just kindly pointed out to me that Track 12 (Brandy Alexander) in the .zip file is an .m4a file that I missed. /o\ If your music player hates .m4as, I've re-uploaded an .mp3 version as a single track here for you. ♥
