This is a Matt fanmix, made at [livejournal.com profile] hervictory's request, at this meme. I actually sort of bullied her into requesting it, because I had a bunch of songs in mind for Matt for some reason, but there you go. Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy the music, and that you feel my choices make sense!

Photobucket

Dumb - Nirvana

/i'm not like them/but i can pretend/
/the sun is gone/but i have a light/
/the day is done/but i'm having fun/
/i think i'm dumb/or maybe just happy/

Ken Scholl Would Go - Balsa Gliders

/i emailed all my friends/told them to come out/
/but they were all cooped up/watching duke bow out to florida in just the third round/
/.../
/ken scholl would go/ken scholl would go/to yo la tengo/

Cigarettes And Chocolate Milk - Rufus Wainwright

/cigarettes and chocolate milk/
/these are just a couple of my cravings/
/everything it seems i like's a little bit stronger/
/a little bit thicker/
/a little bit harmful for me/

The Arcade - Hyper Crush

/you know i like the way you play the arcade/
/you know you like the way i'm running the game/
/i'm sure you're always gonna want some/always gonna want some more/
/i know you really want to be my/really want to be my sword/

Never Let Me Down Again - Depeche Mode

/i'm taking a ride with my best friend/
/i hope he never lets me down again/
/promises me i'm as safe as houses/
/as long as i remember who's wearing the trousers/
/i hope he never lets me down again/

I love that song, though I was stuck between this one and another song about smoking. I ended up picking this one because it was about more than just smoking. XD; Anyway, yay? Thank you!

It really fits! It's quite sweet and mellow laid back, too. Plus, Rufus Wainwright is super!

What was the other song?

I Smoke A Lot by K's Choice. It's a rather nice song, but it's really just about smoking, and it has attitudes about it that I have no idea if Matt shares, so I realized it probably wasn't the best choice. And yes, I love Rufus Wainwright's voice, even if my sister insists that this song is awful because it sounds like his mouth is full of food. XD; I disagree!

XD Awww. Although, the first time I heard Andrew Bird I thought he sounded like Rufus Wainwright with his mouth a bit emptier. :X He's still wonderful!

Anyway, this song fits Matt swimmingly. Thumbs up!

Awesome selection - I love it that they all sound quite different but also all sound Matt-like, to my ears anyway ^^ Echoing the love for Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk, even if it did make me crave chocolate milk at work ;) It sounds laid-back, but when it switches to the more minor-sounding bits it sounds like it's hinting at the bad stuff which is to come and... yeah. Most excellent work!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you enjoyed it. It made me want chocolate milk too, which I guess is better than wanting cigarettes? This song is fairly creepy if you really listen to the lyrics, which I think fits Matt quite well. He's laid-back and easy-going, but there are certain things that are more sinister if you look closely. Anyway thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Yeah - I really like the way it's got other meanings that could be read into it.
