I can has 24 fanmix!

This just posted over on fanmix, but just in case any interested parties aren't a member there, I thought I would post here as well.

Medium: TV
Fandom: 24
Subject: Jack Bauer & Renee Walker
Title: The Hand That Will Take You Down
Warnings: Based on Day 7. Tracks 5-8 and 12-13 are .wma files; others are .mp3
Notes: At the bottom of the post

in 24 hours they'll be laying flowers on my life, it's over tonight
i'm not messing, no I need your blessing and your promise to live free
please do it for me

it's the only one you've got/3 doors down
memories have left you broken and the scars have never healed
the emptiness in you is growing but so little left to feel
you're scared to look back on the days before
you're too tired to move on

the pretender/foo fighters
i'm the voice inside your head you refuse to hear
i'm the face that you have to face mirrored in your stare
i'm what's left, I'm what's right, i'm the enemy
i'm the hand that will take you down, bring you to your knees

i'm no angel/dido
i'm no angel, but please don't think that I won't try and try
i'm no angel, but does that mean that I can't live my life
i'm no angel, but please don't think that I can't cry
i'm no angel, but does that mean that I won't fly

one more murder/better than ezra
one more murder in this town
don't mean a thing, you get accustomed to the sound
one more murder in this town
block off the street and wrap the crime scene tape around

if i am/nine days
the answers we find are never what we had in mind
so we make it up as we go along
you don't talk of dreams when i won't mention tomorrow
and we won't make those promises that we can't keep

perfect silence/scapegoat wax
take all our friends, take the life we're growing used to
and just send us away
as the clock ticks slowly, moves through every hour of every day
are we okay
are we alive

believe in something/fisher
i would take a chance - purely from ignorance
blissfully thinking soon that I’d be coming home
to something

heroes/david cook
all these heroes come and go but you're still standing

you do what you have to do/sarah mclachlan
what ravages of spirit conjured this temptuous rage
created you a monster broken by the rules of love
and fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do

novocaine for the soul/eels
life is hard and so am i
you better give me something so I don't die

when you cry/vertical horizon
you carry too much on your shoulders
i can't wait till you let me down
cause the only thing we're getting is older
this time never comes back around
it just goes away

where I've been, well it's all a blur
what I was looking for, I'm not sure
too late and didn't see it coming

please don't leave me/pink
i can be so mean when I wanna be
i am capable of really anything
i can cut you into pieces
but my heart is broken

falls on me/fuel
the darkness in my veins i never could explain
and I wonder if you ever see, will you still believe?

freedom never cries/five for fighting
i wrote a song for a dead man to settle my soul
a song for a dead man, now i'll never grow old
i wrote a song for a dead man, now I'm out in the cold
what's a song to a dead man to me?


Author's Notes:

I put these down at the bottom because, face it, no one really cares. But there were a couple of things I wanted to note.

When I started contemplating a 24 fanmix, I knew I didn't want it just based on the show or even just based on the character of Jack Bauer. Seven seasons is just too much ground to cover and, besides, it was this last season that really took my enjoyment of the show into something bordering on giddy obsession. And it was all about Jack, and the new character of Renee Walker who is awesomeness^2, and their storyarc in general. So this is not necessarily a 'shippy fanmix. It's definitely not romantic.

I wanted to make a fanmix that would (1) Reflect the often melancholy and macabre nature of 24 without devolving into emo, (2) Reflect what Jack and Renee are going through emotionally throughout the season, both together and apart, and (3) be comprised of musicians that I like and music I enjoy listening to. And this is what happened.

**If you would like a track to download separately, just drop me a line in the comments and I'll put it up.
