Heavy In Your Arms – A Spuffy Fanmix

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hey All! So, it’s my posting day and I’ve been really excited for it because I actually worked hard this round on my submissions. Up first is a fanmix – Heavy in Your Arms. It’s a collection of music that I love, mostly mainstream, but always fun and sing along-able. There’s some punk for Spike at the beginning, some pop for Buffy at the end, and lots of alt-rock for me. All the songs remind me of Spuffy in some way, and they all relate to some aspect of their relationship.

01. Should I Stay or Should I Go? – The Clash
(Season 5 Spike Point-of-View)

Always tease tease tease
You’re happy when I’m on my knees
One day is fine, next day is black
So if you want me off your back
Well come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

02. Ever Fallen in Love With Someone (You Shouldn’t’ve Fallen in Love With?) – The Buzzcocks
(Season 5 – Spike Point-of-View)

You spurn my natural emotions
You make me feel like dirt
And I’m hurt
And if I start a commotion
I run the risk of losing you
And that’s worse

Ever fallen in love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
Ever fallen in love
In love with someone
You shouldn’t’ve fallen in love with

03. Fix You – Coldplay
(Season 6 – Buffy’s Return)

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I…

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

04. Extraordinary Girl – Green Day
(Season 6 – circa Once More, With Feeling)

She’s all alone again
Wiping the tears from her eyes
Some days he feels like dying
Some days it’s not worth trying
Now that they both are finding
She gets so sick of crying

05. I Will Possess Your Heart – Death Cab For Cutie
(Season 6 – pre-Wrecked)

How I wish you could see the potential,
the potential of you and me.
It’s like a book elegantly bound but,
in a language that you can’t read.
Just yet.

You gotta spend some time, Love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find, love
I will possess your heart.

06. Kiss With A Fist – Florence + The Machine
(Season 6 – circa Smashed)

My black eye casts no shadow
Your red eye sees no pain
Your slaps don’t stick
Your kicks don’t hit
So we remain the same
Blood sticks and sweat drips
Break the lock if it don’t fit
A kick in the teeth is good for some
A kiss with a fist is better than none
A-woah, a kiss with a fist is better than none

07. Portions for Foxes – Rilo Kiley
(Season 6 – Sexy Times)

I know I’m alone if I’m with or without you
but just bein’ around you offers me another form of relief
When the loneliness leads to bad dreams
and the bad dreams lead me to callin’ you
and I call you and say “C’MERE!”

And it’s bad news
Baby I’m bad news
I’m just bad news, bad news, bad news
. . .
‘Cause you’re just damage control
for a walking corpse like me – like you

08. Like A Friend – Pulp
(Season 6 – Sexy Times)

I’ve done this before.
And I will do it again.
Come on and kill me baby,
while you smile like a friend.
And I’ll come running,
Just to do it again.

09. Shiver – Maroon 5
(Season 6 – Sexy Times, Spike Point-of-View)

There may not
Be another way to your heart
So I guess I’d better find a new way in
I shiver when I hear your name
Think about you but it’s not the same
I won’t be satisfied ’till I’m under your skin

Immobilized by the thought of you
Paralyzed by the sight of you
Hypnotized by the words you say
Not true but I believe ’em anyway

10. Heavy in Your Arms – Florence + The Machine
(Season 6 – Buffy’s Depression)

And is it worth the wait,
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand,
Protecting both your heart and mine?
Who is the betrayer
Who’s the killer in the crowd?
The one who creeps in corridors
And doesn’t make a sound
. . .
This will be my last confession
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it’s a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

11. Running Up That Hill – Placebo
(Season 6 – Buffy’s Depression, circa Dead Things)

You don’t wanna hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I’m tearing you asunder.
There’s a thunder in our hearts, baby.
So much hate for the ones we love?
Tell me, we both matter, don’t we?

You, be running up that hill
You and me, be running up that hill
You and me won’t be unhappy.

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building,
If I only could, oh…

12. The Space Between – Dave Matthews Band
(Season 6 – Spike to Buffy)

We’re strange allies
With warring hearts
What wild-eyed beast you be
The Space Between
The wicked lies we tell
And hope to keep safe from the pain

Will I hold you again?
Will I hold…

Look at us spinning out in
The madness of a roller coaster
You know you went off like a devil
In a church in the middle of a crowded room
All we can do, my love
Is hope we don’t take this ship down

13. When You Go – Jonathan Coulton
(Season 6 – After They Break It Off)

Some things we always remember, some things we forget
No way to make it up now no room for regret
That’s no good for anyone
And so I come undone
Now I am less than what I was
Whatever’s left is yours now

So fold my heart up small
Or break it into pieces
Find somewhere and keep it there
Take it when you go

14. This Woman’s Work – Kate Bush
(Season 7 – Buffy)

I should be crying, but I just can’t let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can’t stop thinking

Of all the things I should’ve said,
That I never said.
All the things we should’ve done,
That we never did.
All the things I should’ve given,
But I didn’t.

15. Brighter Than Sunshine – Aqualung
(Season 7)

I never saw it happening
I’d given up and given in
I just couldn’t take the hurt again
What a feeling

I didn’t have the strength to fight
Suddenly you seemed so right
Me and you
What a feeling

16. Shiver – Coldplay
(Season 7)

But on and on
From the moment I wake, to the moment I sleep
I’ll be there by your side; just you try and stop me
I’ll be waitin’ in line, just to see if you care

Did you want me to change?
But I’d change for good
And I want you to know that you’ll always get your way
I wanted to say…

Don’t you shiver
Sing it loud and clear
I’ll always be waiting for you

17. You’ve Got the Love – Florence + The Machine
(Season 7)

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need To see me through

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

18. Flames – Vast
(Season 7 – Chosen)

close your eyes
let me touch you now
let me give you something that is real
close the door
leave your fears behind
let me give you what you’re giving me
you are the only thing
that makes me want to live at all
when i am with you
there’s no reason to pretend
that when i am with you i feel flames again
just put me inside you
i would never ever leave
just put me inside you
i would never ever leave

19. My Life Would Suck Without You – Kelly Clarkson
(Happy AU Post-Season 7 Domestic Spuffy)

Because we belong together now
Forever united here somehow
Yeah you got a piece of me
And honestly
My life would suck without you
