Fanmix: Battlestar Galatica: Kara/Lee, Lee/Dee, Kara/Anders

The writers on Battlestar Galactica have left us at such an interesting place for this hiatus.  They could have taken the easy route and killed off Anders at the beginning of the season and allowed our starcrossed lovers to reunite.  They could have even decided to move on from the Kara/Lee plotline and let them be happy with their new lives.  Instead we get secret meetings, confessions of love, betrayal, suspicion, and so much more.  We have been titilated at every turn.

This mix is divided into 3 parts, one for each couple.  It begins with Kara and Lee's night on the beach and leads up to the season finale.  I'm a Kara/Lee 'shipper, but I like all the relationships and I hope I have done all of them justice despite my bias.  The songs really focus on where the characters are right now, so while I believe Lee and Dee have a valid relationship in some ways, their songs aren't very happy because of where their relationship is currently.

Beautiful Love - The Afters  (Lee/Kara - that night)
Larger then the moon, my love for you
World's collide, as heaven pulls us through
The secret of the world is written in the stars
I'm carrying your heart in mine

What a beautiful smile
Can It stay for a while
On this beautiful night
We'll make everything right
My beautiful love

Expo ’86 - Death Cab for Cutie  (Lee to Kara)
Sometimes it seems that I don't have the skills to recollect
The twists and turns of plot that turned us from lovers to friends
I'm thinking I should take that volume back up off the shelf
And crack it's weary spine and read to help remind myself

I am waiting for you to flee the scene
As if you held in your hand the smoking gun
And on the floor lay the one you said you loved.

Close I’ve Come - Ben Lee  (Lee/Kara)
The universe is brought back
From the brink of destruction
Every time that you smile.
But I can see things clearer
It's all smoke in the mirrors
Yeah, you broke my fucking heart but I still want you

Love and War - Rilo Kiley (Kara to Lee)
Why must you try to ruin my peace of mind
And they were only words and I never meant them
I never loved you even in my weakness

With or Without You - U2  (Lee/Kara)
I can't live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she's got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

Song for the Girl - Matthew Good  (Lee/Kara)
Up again, down again, out of your head
When she's beside you you're nearly not so dead
Up again, down again, out of your head
When she's beside you you're always at your best

Flying High - Jem (Lee/Kara)
I know, oh yes
I know that we can't
Be together
But, I just like to dream
It's so strange
The way our paths have crossed
How we were brought together
Hmmm, it's written in the stars it seems
Feel so nice
Oh yeah you feel so nice
I'd love to spend the night
But I can't pay the price
Oh no, no

We're Friends - Michael Giacchino

Falling Out of Love - Aqualung (Lee to Dee)
Feeling alone
With you by my side
Further and further away
Funny how long
A moment can seem
When you're trying to hold on
Feels like

I’m falling out of love

Tiny Vessels - Death Cab for Cutie  (Lee to Dee)
This is the moment that you know
That you told you loved her but you don't.
You touch her skin and then you think
That she is beautiful but she don't mean a thing to me.

Let You Down - Trespassers Williams  (Lee to Dee)
Love, do you need me now
'Cause I’ve let you down
'Cause I’ve already let you go
And you don't even know

Breaking My Heart - Aqualung (Dee to Lee)
Need to know
I don't wanna know
Already know
I've seen the signs
I watch you as you pull yourself away from me

Against All Odds - The Postal Service  (Dee to Lee)
How can you just walk away from me
When all I can do is watch you leave?
'Cause we shared the laughter and the pain
And even shared the tears
You're the only one who really knew me at all

So take a look at me now
There's just an empty space
There's nothing left here to remind me
Just the memory of your face
But take a look at me now
There's just an empty space
And you coming back to me is against the odds
And that's what I've gotta face

Your Hand in Mine (Goodbye) - Explosions in the Sky

Make War - Bright Eyes  (Sam to Kara)
Our love is dead but without limit,
Like the surface of the moon
Or the land between here and the mountains.
Well, it is not these hiding places
That have kept us innocent
But the way you taught me to just let it all go by.
And so we've learned to be as faithless,
Stand behind bulletproof glass,
Exchanging our affections through a drawer.
And it was always horribly convenient
And happening too fast.
You should count your change before you're even out the door.
Yes, you should but please...

Return, return to the person that you were.
And I will do the same
’Cause it is too hard to belong to someone who is gone.
My compass spins. The wilderness remains.

The Moth - Aimee Mann  (Sam/Kara)
The moth don't care when he sees the flame
He might get burned but he's in the game
And once he's in he can't go back, and
Beat his wings 'til he burns them black

The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars  (Sam to Kara)
You say you wanted more
What are you waiting for
I'm not running from you

Come break me down
Marry me, bury me
I am finished with you
Look in my eyes
You're killing me, killing me
All I wanted was you

Communication - The Cardigans  (Sam/Kara)
I didn’t really know what to call you, you didn’t know me at all
But I was happy to explain.
I never really knew how to move you
So I tried to intrude through the little holes in your veins

And I saw you
But that’s not an invitation
That’s all I get
If this is communication
I disconnect
I’ve seen you, I know you
But I don’t know
How to connect, so I disconnect

Angry Angel - Imogen Heap (Kara to Sam)
Over there stands my angry angel
And he’s shaking his head, in disgrace with me
Yeah over there stands my angry angel
And he’s frowning like hell, but I’m not feeling guilty

Choose the One Who Loves You More - Copeland  (All)
When they come knocking on your heart's door
Choose the one who loves you more, oh
And when you've found something to die for
(It can make you face all your fears)
They'll be knocking on your heart's door.

Please, please comment and enjoy!
