Fanmix/Picspam of Paper Hearts, Sein und Zeit & Closure  
This is my first attempt at making a fanmix.  So, I decided that I would base it off something that I love very deeply.  One of my favorite plot lines from the X-Files is the story of Mulder's sister, Samantha.  My all-time favorite episode is Paper Hearts so of course I also am absolutely enamored with Sein und Zeit and Closure as well.

For this mix, I picked out 9 songs that always make me think of certain scenes in these 3 episodes and also simply remind me of the ridiculously complicated relationship between Mulder and Scully.  I hope you enjoy and please comment to tell me what you think.




Something to Believe In - Aqualung

MULDER: Scully, do you believe that my sister
Samantha was abducted by aliens? 
(Scully looks away.) 
Have you ever believed that? No. 
So what do you think happened to her?
SCULLY: What are you saying you believe now?
MULDER: I don't know. I don't know what happened. 
I don't know what to believe. 
I just know that I have to find out now.
Turn out the light 
And what are you left with 
Open up my hands 
And find out they're empty 
Press my face to the ground 
I've gotta find a reason
Just scratching around For something to believe in

Save Me - The Pierces

MULDER: Are you okay, Caitlin?
(Caitlin nods.) 
Good. My name is Fox, I'm going to take you home.
But I know there's no one left to save me. 
(I am the only one.) 
There's no one left to save me. 
(I am the only one.) 
There's no one left to save me.

 Atlantic - Keane

SCULLY: Mulder, it’s not Samantha… 
and whoever that little girl really is, we’ll find her. 
SCULLY: I don’t know, but I do know you.
I hope all my days 
Will be lit by your face 
I hope all the years 
Will hold tight our promises 
I don't wanna be old and sleep alone 
An empty house is not a home 
I don't wanna be old and feel afraid

Explosions - The Mary Onettes

SCULLY: I can't explain it, Mulder, 
but you're doing exactly what I said. 
You're personalizing this case. 
MULDER: No, I'm going to solve this case. 
I am going to solve it. 
MULDER: I'm going to find those kids. 
SCULLY: What if they're dead, Mulder? 
Don't go looking for something you don't want to find.
Yeah, it will make your heart stop 
There's nobody else taking you through this 
Nobody else taking through this 
Nobody else, nobody else 
Nobody else but you

Black Tables - Other Lives

MULDER: She was trying to tell me something. 
She was... (his voice breaks) ...trying to tell me something.
SCULLY: Mulder, she was trying to tell you to stop. 
To stop looking for your sister. 
She was just trying to take away your pain.
When the life in your eyes wants black
Things return
You've come back
With your body and mine raised up
It's good to see you once more

 The Ocean - The Bravery

MULDER: (reading) "Sometimes I think my memories were taken by
the doctors but not all of them. I remember faces. I think I had a
brother... with brown hair, who used to tease me. I hope someday
he reads this and knows I wish I could see his face for real."

Oh the ocean rolls us away, away, away
The ocean rolls us away

The sun and the moon
An ocean of air
So many voices
But nothing is there
The ghost of you asking me why
Why did I leave

My Weakness - Moby // Postcards from Far Away - Coldplay

MULDER: Samantha…
(Mulder is reunited with his sister’s spirit.)


Satellite - Collective Soul

SCULLY: Mulder, what happened? Are you sure you’re all right?
MULDER: I’m fine.
(Mulder looks up at the sky.)
MULDER: I’m free.

Soon reason will have rhyme
Soon wisdom will imply
And with courage doubt subsides
So take my heart and take my pride

And I will be your sword
And I will be your might
And I will watch over you like a satellite

I just watched Paper Hearts the other day, and I love it so much, it's my favorite Mulder-centric ep. The pain on his face at the end really kills me.

This is gorgeous work gurl, I love the cover art and I don't have most of these songs so I will totes be d/ling nao!

His pain hits my heart too- David's acting there is so intense and filled with so emotion, I love to see him get that way, as wrong as that may sound (Hey, Mulder's fictional...)
I especially love the scene when the shakes his desk in anger (the picture above Black Tables - Other Lives) after his mother died.

Here via xfiles, definitely snagging your mix! Great picspam, too! SUZ/Closure are my fav eps, so much love for them :D

Thank you! I know, they really are awesome eps.

Um, this is basically amazing. I adore "Paper Hearts" (my favorite too!), and I love SUZ/Closure too. I love seeing people do creative things surrounding these awesome episodes! I loved Paper Hearts enough to picspam and analyze the hell out of it, but I don't think I could ever do a great fanmix, I love this. Definitely snagging!
anna "pookie-love-muffins" kaesiriusdenial_ on September 17th, 2009 02:18 pm (UTC)
I remember reading and really enjoying your stuff about Paper Hearts! That was a really awesome picspam that you did. Thank youuu. =)
Oi! Don't diss the sonic!: mulder; the field where i died.thedamaged on September 17th, 2009 06:20 am (UTC)
Why the hell does this only have 3 comments?
Cause it's too amazing to have only 3, but anyways.
Paper Hearts is definitely one of my favorite eps of what I've seen(i cheated a little and watched season 4 before I got season 1)

This has awesome songs, and downloading.
anna "pookie-love-muffins" kaesiriusdenial_ on September 17th, 2009 02:18 pm (UTC)
Thank you! Once I got to season 4, I watched it immediately. I love it so much!

-loves- this is going to be a real treat to listen to, it's such an amazing story arc and your picks are just gorgeous. ^.^
anna "pookie-love-muffins" kaesiriusdenial_ on September 17th, 2009 02:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! This mix contains some of my favorite songs of all time. Hope you enjoy it! =)

Prepare for a praise rant...

Let me start off my telling you, this is the first fanmix I have listened to all the way through and ENJOYED! The songs you have chosen are so beautiful- definitely my kind of music. You also earn extra points for the title of this fanmix and for including Moby's amazing piece (I watched that episode again just the other day and cried during that scene...)
Each of these songs really touched my heart, most of them I can't believe I've never heard before! For the first time (thanks to your provided pictures and quotes) I tried to imagine them playing during each scene and see how they illustrate the feelings and emotions those scenes bring. They fit SO well.
Here are some of my favorites:

Save Me - The Pierces; I've never heard of The Pierces before either. I LOVE the chorus and when they sing "-save me." This song breaks my heart when I think about Mulder and all that he's been through. :'( It makes me want to give him a BIG hug! lol.

The Ocean - The Bravery; I'm a sucker for almost any song that involves string instruments/orchestra- it gives me chills. This song is AMAZING and the lines you chose almost brought me to tears when I thought about Mulder during that scene and how many 'Why?'s he was asking.

Postcards from Far Away - Coldplay; I did not know this song existed. and Coldplay is one of my favorite bands! :O It's somewhat ghostly and fits the slow motion of their reuniting.

I could comment on all of them, but I'll stop myself. :D

Awesome job!!
anna "pookie-love-muffins" kaesiriusdenial_ on September 17th, 2009 02:26 pm (UTC)
Wow! Thank you so much, that was really high praise. I spent a really long time combing through my iTunes coming up with the perfect songs, so I'm really glad that all that time paid off! I was worried that people wouldn't be able to hear/feel the connections that I felt these songs had with the scenes. I'm so glad you caught my drift.

Ditto to what you said about songs that have string instruments/orchestra. Ever heard "To Build a Home" by The Cinematic Orchestra? Definitely one of the most beautiful songs ever. And it will always be a Mulder/Scully song to me and close to my heart because of the beautiful music video by RequiemX that goes along to it.

Coldplay is my favorite band of all time. I've seen them live twice! Postcards from Far Away is from a mini album that didn't get much press but it came out after Viva la Vida. It's called "Prospekt's March." You should really look into it, it's got some really great stuff on it. =)
