X-Files song-a-thon!

Recommended Posts

Just for fun...

 

What are some songs that fit X-Files characters?

 

Can be shipper, non shipper, or show or specific character related.

 

I'll kick it off :).

 

Be Without You -- Mary J. Blige (for M&S's relationship overall)

November Rain -- Guns and Roses (for sad times between them)

Take my Breath Away -- Berlin (when they first started going out together)

Is this love -- Whitesnake (their relationship, especially Mulder)

Chicago - Hard To Say I'm Sorry (fits their relationship)

You're the inspiration -- Chicago (fits them too)

After all these years -- Journey (kind of fits them)

Magic -- The Cars (fits them, along with the chemistry overall)

I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore -- REO Speedwagon (fits them)

Devoted -- Lacuna Coil (kind of fits them)

 

 

Looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with.

U2's Exit always makes me think of Mulder in Gethsemane.  I normally wouldn't post all the lyrics to a song like the fangurl that I am...LOL....but just check this out.  Is this late S4 Mulder or what?!?

 

You know he got the cure
You know he went astray
He used to stay awake
To drive the dreams he had away
He wanted to believe
In the hands of love

 

His head it felt heavy
As he cut across the land
A dog started crying
Like a broken hearted man
At the howling wind
At the howling wind

 

He went deeper into black
Deeper into white
Could see the stars shining
Like nails in the night
He felt the healing
Healing, healing
Healing hands of love
Like the stars shiny shiny
From above

 

Hand in the pocket
Finger on the steel
The pistol weighed heavy
His heart he could feel
Was beating, beating
Beating, beating oh my love
Oh my love, oh my love
Oh my love

 

My love

 

Saw the hands that build
Can also pull down

 

The hands of love

I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore -- REO Speedwagon (fits them)

 

I'm listening to this right now.  I came to actually post this song b/c it came up on my playlist, but then saw you already did.   I'm dying over here.

Nice :).

What other songs do you think fit them and/or fit the X-Files in general?

That's all I have so far.  Today was apparently 80's rock ballad day for me at work.  Made for some feels.  :)

 

ETA:

 

There's always the obvious:

David Duchovny - Bree Sharp

Mulder and Scully - Catatonia

 

And I still swear, even though the lyrics have nothing to do with anything... I hear Bad Blood by Bastille and I think of the episode.  Oh!  And the music video for Pompeii by Bastille everyone has oil eyes.  Bastille... covert X-Files fans?  ;)

Here's a nice, depressing one... lol  I think in some twisted way it reminds me of everything and everyone that Mulder and Scully lost over the years, and in the end "it's always just been you and me."  Visually, the lyrics remind me of "Field Trip" too.

 

Remains - Bastille

 

I came here for sanctuary
Away from the winds and the sounds of the city
I came here to get some peace
Way down deep where the shadows are heavy

 

I can't help but think of you
In these four walls my thoughts seem to wander
To some distant century
Where everyone we know is six feet under

 

When all of our friends are dead and just a memory
And we're side by side, it's always been just you and me
For all to see

 

When our lives are over
And all that remains
Are our skulls and bones
Let's take it to the grave

 

And hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
I'll be buried here with you
And I'll hold in these hands, all that remains

 

I don't want to rest in peace
We can haunt each other's dreams
We'll fight underneath this dirt
And bicker away in darkness

 

We'll find a way to resolve
Our banes from the land of the living
And we'll find uncovered ground
Fall in love all over again

 

When all of our friends are dead and just a memory
And we're side by side, it's always been just you and me
For all to see

 

When our lives are over
And all that remains
Are our skulls and bones
Let's take it to the grave

 

And hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms

I'll be buried here with you
And I'll hold in these hands, all that remains

 

From dusk to dawn, when I have screamed
Grows silent in defeat
I know I chased a memory
But you used to taste so sweet

 

As you fade away
I realise it's all over
And nothing stays the same
But skull and bones remain

 

When all of our friends are dead and just a memory
And we're side by side, it's always been just you and me
For all to see

 

When our lives are over
And all that remains
Are our skulls and bones
Let's take it to the grave

 

Hold me in your arms
Hold me in your arms
I'll be buried here with you
And I'll hold in these hands, all that remains

Just found a new song for M & S :).

 

Friends and Lovers -- Incubus

 

I'm an empty well
Running out of black gold
It's high time I pulled over
And walked around for a while

I've seen the porcelain shell
Your exoskeleton
And I feel like we'd walk well together

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers

If asked of me I would
Gobble them to bits
The things that wall us off from
Where we belong

What's wrong with you is good
For what's wrong with me
And I think maybe we should stick together

Because in the end, we are friends and lovers
We are friends and lovers

Abandon all the bones
We've got to pick
They'll only weigh us down and
We are better than that

If they all throw stones
Start a collection
Of everything we're not
And won't be-cause

You should never have to defend
(Never have to defend)
Being friends and lovers
Being friends and lovers (oh)
Being friends and lovers

 

 

 

Found a couple by Ozzy Osborne that fit them.

 

Lay Your World on Me (it has a s4 and s5 M & S vibe to it imo)

 

I know you think you're all alone
I haven't been there when you've needed me
I didn't deserve the love you gave
But now I'm telling you I'm here if you need a friend

Give me your pain
Give me your anger
Let me be your rock
I can be the pillar of strength that you need
I'll help you keep it all together
It's better late than never
Lay your world on me
I can take the weight

Don't let it twist you up inside
Time never fails to make the heartache stop
You've got to let those feelings go
I'll give you everything I can if you say the word

Give me your pain
Give me your anger
Let me be your rock
I can be the pillar of strength that you need
I'll help you keep it all together
It's better late than never
Lay your world on me
I can take the weight

We all laugh and we all cry
We all hurt the same inside
We all fall down and we lose faith in who we really are
But if we bend instead of break
The choice for us is to make it together
Lay your world on me

I'll help you keep it all together
It's better late than never
Lay your world on me
Lay your world on me
Lay your world on me
I can take the weight

 

 

Here for You

 

I remember all the good times
Sometimes I'd wonder would it last
I used to dream about the future
But now the future is the past

I don't wanna live in yesterday
Cross my heart until I die
Don't wanna know just what tomorrow may bring
Because today has just begun
No matter whatever else I've done
I'm here for you
I'm here for you

So now I sit here and I wonder
What ever happened to my friends?
Too many bought a one way ticket
But I'll be with you 'til the end

I don't wanna live in yesterday
Cross my heart until I die
Don't wanna know just what tomorrow may bring
Because today has just begun
No matter whatever else I've done
I'm here for you

You're my religion, you're my reason to live
You are the heaven in my hell
We've been together for a long long time
And I just can't live without you
No matter what you do, I'm here for you

I don't wanna live in yesterday
Cross my heart until I die
Don't wanna know just what tomorrow may bring
Because today has just begun
No matter whatever else I've done
I'm here for you
I'm here for you
I'm here for you
I'm here for you

Ha Ha that David Duchovny song, I forgot about that one. I'm listening to it right now.

 

ETA: She's got a new 2016 version. lol. Now she's gonna kiss Scully instead of killing her.

This John Prine song came out this spring, and it strikes me as just right for "Nothing Lasts Forever"-era Mulder and Scully. It was the line about New Year's Eve that first caught my attention, but really the whole song reminds me of them. It's about age, and heading into a new season of life, and missing someone you used to be close to, and reconciliation and forgiveness. Fair warning: if there's anyone you miss right now, it might make you cry.
