Happy Christmas, Merlin fans. Here's an over-ambitious fanmix!

This is, in theory, a mix celebrating Merlin and Arthur's ~platonic love~ through the years, beginning with Merlin's arrival in the city, and ending- sort of vaguely- with the glory years of Camelot. And then it has bonus tracks!

Our Smallest Adventures

-If you like the songs, please support the artists financially by making purchases.

I Was A Cub Scout- Our Smallest Adventures
We found ourselves in clueless company, and spoke of things we could not repeat
We've trapped our tongues and stumbled on our midnight steps,
And oh how I know you best, you’re the troublesome mess,
But I would cut every corner to find you…
There are simple routes we can follow, there's so many things we can do,
But we're all tied up and oh so lost on our smallest adventures

The Young Republic-When I See Your Eyes I Swear To God That Worlds Collide
Don't you know that you are the best friend
I have found in such a long time?
This could be - I could be bound
To turn out alright.

The Hold Steady- You Can Make Him Like You
You don't have to go to the right kind of schools
Let your boyfriend come from the right kind of school
You can wear his old sweatshirt
You can cover yourself like a bruise

Be Your Own Pet- Adventure
It's all cool you know,
’Cos we're like, adventurers!
We are adventuring, we are adventurers!
We've been to every place anywhere in the world!

Kat Flint- Christopher, You’re A Soldier Now
And you'll be floating on the boys lost to the deep,
And you'll be waiting for the, waiting for the sound of the end.
And if you're breathing in the morning make your bed again.
All the others-
Other people's brothers-
Underneath the flag and guard they come home.
Glory Hallelujah, hands up or we'll shoot ya.

All The King’s Horses- Bloodless
And can I even remember all the blood?

Emmy the Great- War
The dream that I have is always the same-
a foot falls like an echo of a step I didn't take,
and I see you coming in like you were never gone.
Tell me, why did I wake?
Here in the world I was hiding from,
they're expecting it to rain

Andrew Bird- A Nervous Tic Motion of the Head to the Left
You're what happens when two substances collide
And by all accounts you really should have died

Malcolm Middleton- Hey You
I'll come charging down your door,
screaming, ‘stay with me and don’t ever leave’,
because without you my time is slow, low and grey,
and I am poor just like I was before.
You came to me and we agreed that things are going to change
in our lives for the better

The Hot Puppies- King of England
I am the King of England,
So bring me the head of the man who took my people to war
I am the King of England,
So give me a piece of your heart
So I can put it up on the wall.

Albert Hammond Jr- Hard To Live in the City
Something about you, yeah I couldn't tell.
And you were always crazy, and I didn't like that.
There’s something about you, that I knew so well,
to all those questions that have no answers

The Wave Pictures- Too Many Questions
Like ‘why do you do the things you are doing?’
And ‘what are you thinking of when you are doing them?
What do you mean when you say what you’re saying?’
And ‘what do you think about me?’

Patrick Wolf- A Boy Like Me
A boy like me should know much better than to raise his flag in stormy weather.
But I just can't get enough electric shocks.

Locksley- Don’t Make Me Wait
Don't make me wait so long-
One day I think we may have settled down together, baby
One day I’ll bet you'll say there is nothing better, baby
That day when you won't stay some day becomes never, baby
That day is far away, so I won't think about the maybes

Joel Plaskett- Wait, Wait, Wait
There's something I forgot to say-
I was not everything I was supposed to be,
But wait a minute before you leave-
Wait, wait.
Let me love you one more time-
I'll put everything in it, this soul of mine.

The Mountain Goats- Love, Love, Love
Love is gonna lead you by the hand
Into a white and soundless place.
Now we see this as in a mirror, dimly.
Then we shall see each other,
Face to face.

The Redwalls- Build a Bridge and Bring Both Sides Together
Well, we had a lot to learn.
On the way we had our fun,
And then it turned, it turned around.
Now we find the love we had, oh, has slipped away.
Oh, sometimes we lose the games we play.

The Velvet Underground- Pale Blue Eyes
Thought of you as my mountain top,
Thought of you as my peak.
Thought of you as everything,
I've had but couldn't keep.

Delays- We Together Make A City
I found you in summer
When you were undercover
Not hiding,
Just shadowed,
And burning brightly now.

Bonus Tracks:

dEUS- Dream Sequence #1
I need to find a little more insight- give me insight.
I'm getting better everyday,
I just don't care what they say.
People are talking, they were talking before.
They don't even know who we are anymore.

Do Make Say Think- Herstory of Glory

Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton- The Maid Needs A Maid
Would you put on the fire for me,
draw the bath and remind me to eat?
You won't need a real job,
You won't need a real job because I would love to pay for you.
You could be a good wife to me.
I would love to pay for you,
you are the maid for me.

Gruff Rhys- The Court of King Arthur
Must be careful with my magnetometer,
Excavation takes a long time;
First I survey,
Then dig through the lime.
So make some space now 'cause I'm digging for treasure,
I'm digging deep for the court of king Arthur, Arthur.

Aw this is sweet! And took a lot of work, too.

Now if only they'd get beyond the ~platonic friendship~ thing....

Off topic, but I need to know how much I owe you? I asked on Twitter but I don't think you've been on for a while. The LP arrived a while ago and is brill, thank you! xxxx

Oh! Yes, I am rather bad at twitter. Don't worry about owing me anything- we'll call it a Christmas present :)

Taking, because Emily Haines is awesome and you chose quite possibly my favourite Delays song (well, one of my favourites, anyway).

Yes indeed! I was going to include some here, but nothing seemed to fit quite right.

Ah, shame! I've had that exact same trouble with fanmixes myself. Although, I have actually been planning to upload a Merlin/Arthur fanmix I made ages ago which includes some rather lovely Veils-goodness...
