So, this was incredibly difficult and also fun! I started it in October, after I saw the film for the first time...

According to last.fm, I listened to each of these songs 60-80 times in the process of putting the mix together. So, uh, this has taken some time? Also there are 35 tracks, because making decisions is hard! So this is more of a fanboxset, really, but I didn’t think anyone would mind... there's a download link for each song, and a .zip file of all the songs at the end of the post. If you need me to break that .zip down into smaller chunks, I think I'm able to do that, so let me know!

There are probably too many Cooper Temple Clause songs on here (three), but it’s not my fault that they wrote such an applicable album! And the title is from a Mountain Goats song, but not the one I used in the actual mix. Okay? Okay. Enjoy!

"I never met a man in my life whom I admired and loved more than you, but I never could show you how much your friendship meant to me, for you had much to give and I nothing."

(Captain Scott's last letter to JM Barrie, 23rd March, 1912.)



People Say Friends Don't Destroy One Another
What do they know about friends?



Losers- Azan
(instrumental)

Blue Roses- Doubtful Comforts
You're so good at getting my hopes up
Where they don't belong…
Oh, crumble and fall,
You don't have to carry the weight of it all.

download


Dead Man's Bones- Young and Tragic
I wish that we were magic, so we wouldn’t be so young and tragic.
download


The Presets- This Boy's In Love
Don't tell the world what we've known.
We've come so far but there's still a way to go.
It's dark, there's no need for light,
When the fire in his eyes is so bright.

download


Jeremy Warmsley- Lose My Cool
You make me lose my cool,
And the buttons from my dress shirt.
I think I’m happy when I’m with you.
I never feel the cuts until they hurt.

download


Kat Flint- Fearsome Crowd
I couldn't please the fearsome crowd,
But then I didn't need to.
I was a child and I had better things to do.
I was brand new.

download


The Cooper Temple Clause- Head
So uncharacteristic of you,
to let me get so close to the mystery of you.
It's all a misunderstanding, you see,
I never meant to let anybody get close to me.

download


Delays- Someday Soon You're Gonna Happen
Come with me, let's make up,
Let's make out,
‘Cos I know that
Someday soon you're gonna happen.
Someday soon...

download


Maximo Park- Isolation
People say we got it made,
Don't they know we're so afraid…
I don't expect you to understand,
After you caused so much pain-
But then again you're not to blame,
You're just a human.

download


Radiohead- Palo Alto
In a city of the future,
It is difficult to find a space.
I'm too busy to see you,
You're too busy to wait.

But I'm okay, how are you?
Thanks for asking, thanks for asking.
But I'm okay, how are you?
I hope you're okay too.

download


Steve Mason- Am I Just A Man
I tried to go, I tried to last the distance,
But I did not have the mentalness/persistence.
So he left me with this barrier beside us,
And I want to speak to you but you won't have this.
Oh, am I just a man in love?
Or am I just a boy out of touch?
So I've lost a friend, I've lost a loving partner…

download


The Smiths- I Won't Share You
I won't share you, no,
I won't share you
With the drive
And ambition,
The zeal I feel.
This is my time.

download


The Rakes- Open Book
Things are going to slide,
Slide out of control…
I didn't see the warning signs,
I was falling through the cracks.

download


The Mountain Goats- Old College Try
From the entrance to the exit,
Is longer than it looks from where we stand.
I want to say I'm sorry for stuff I haven't done yet.
Things will shortly get completely out of hand.

download


Jeff Buckley- Last Goodbye
Did you say "No, this can't happen to me,"
And did you rush to the phone to call?
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind
Saying maybe you didn't know him at all?
You didn't know him at all, oh, you didn't know…

download


Camera Obscura- You Told A Lie
Who was it that said that love conquers all?
He was a fool, 'cause it doesn't at all…
Are my eyes the coldest blue?
You said once that this was true.
And if it is I don't know what I'll do,
'Cause I'm stuck with them,
And they're stuck on you.

Was I a quiet little nothing
Who never challenged anyone?
Was I a lazy, lazy snake?

download


Mark Ronson and The Business Intl.- You Gave Me Nothing
And I tried and I tried,
But you gave me nothing
That I could hold on to…
I reached out for your hand,
And you threw it all away.

I'm gonna make you understand
That you threw it all away.

And if you loved me,
You never showed me.
You've got some things to figure out…

download


Joel Plaskett Emergency- The Day You Walked Away
The day you walked away, I didn’t see it coming.
You blew the doors wide open and everybody ran,
The day you walked away, fluorescent lights were humming.

Everybody knows-
Does everybody know the truth?
When I opened up my eyes,
It wasn’t any use.
I can see now, what I didn’t before-
You loved me then, but you don’t anymore.

download


Super Furry Animals- Receptacle for the Respectable
It took a long time for me to get over
Your incredible ways,
And now I'm minded to wipe out the memory
Of the way you behaved.
You're a receptacle
For the respectable.
…We're all susceptible
To the incredible…
Welcome as a storm cloud in the late December gloom,
Subtle as a nail bomb in the head,
You came to me in peace
And left me in pieces.

download


The Cure- I Just Need Myself (demo)
You trust in all my lies,
You believe in what I say.
You think I'll be with you forever so you let me have my way.
I say "Stay with me, baby!" and I lavish you with wealth,
But I'll make it then I'll leave you, 'cause I just need myself.
I just need myself!

download


The Organ- Don't Be Angry
Don't be angry, I don't disagree.
It is clear that I left my clothes on the highway.
But I’d like to know if you ever told yourself
I could have once given your life some meaning.
(All that I want was here, now it’s gone.
Don’t be angry, I will die lonely).

download


Belle and Sebastian- Desperation Made a Fool of Me
I'm tired, on my shoulders weighing heavily
Is the full responsibility for your troubles and your charms.
Your betrayal goes around with me-
Like the sword in some old tragedy,
It is sticking in my back.

download


The Cooper Temple Clause- Once More With Feeling
Can't you see the way you talk to each other?
Don't you realise we're in this together?
It's difficult to think you love one another at all.

download


Joel Plaskett Emergency- Nothing More to Say
Always knew it could be bad,
Though I must admit,
If I thought it'd be this bad
I woulda split.
I am exhausted,
I'm black and blue,
Don't say your cheating heart is attacking you too.
I hear your voice
Across the wire, liar.
Don't call me up when you figure it out,
I've got nothing more to say to you.
You had your chance when the truth came out,
I've got nothing more to say to you.

download


Emmy the Great- Paper Trails
Apologies are boring and they're trite,
But if desired, I will see what I can find.
As soon as the concrete comes into view,
Pencil to paper we'll move for you,
Squeeze our time together to lines and lines and lines of fifty words,
Across the page-
Big decision all contained in a phrase.
I know I promised you a lot-
Forgive me please, for I cannot.

download


Maximo Park- Pride Before a Fall
If I had portioned the blame, could you hold up to it?
And if I ran out of strength, could you forgive me?
I looked at you for too long, the other day.
It was then when I knew, that you weren't the one,
You weren't the one.

What did I do to you?
Why does it hurt when I hear your name?

download


Ryan Adams- Please Do Not Let Me Go
If the walls in the room could talk,
I wonder to myself, would they laugh?
It's like some kind of jail.
Beams of light fall through the curtains onto the bed.
I'm all alone now; I can do as I please.
I don't feel like doing much of anything.
True love ain't that hard to find,
Not that you will ever know.

download


The Cooper Temple Clause- House of Cards
I burst the bubble
And I broke your heart
It seems I'm in trouble
Let's go back to the start
'Cause all I want is you
And all I have is wrong
And just to have you back in the place where you belong…
What does it matter now?
You'll never come home.

download


Dirty Pretty Things- One To My Left
First you weigh up your commitments, where your loyalties really lie,
And if you bump into Jesus, you just look him in the eye,
Tell him that you’re fine, silently return to sharpening your knife.
And finally when the time comes, think of who you really need…
Never drop your guard or let them know the thoughts inside your head.
Just do what you've always done, though you’ll wish you were dead.
Or crush your heart, your spirit and your soul but keep your eyes ahead.
Remember when the time comes, there'll be nowhere you can hide,
It'll just be you, your heart and your bruised pride.

download


The Libertines- Last Post on the Bugle
I heard them say,
'Oh, that boy's no different today
Except in every single way...'

I was carried away,
Caught up in an affray.
They led him away, he sang:
We'll meet again some day, and
Oh my boy, there's a price to pay.

download


dEUS- Nothing Really Ends
With the old schemes of shattered dreams lying on the floor,
You looked at me, no more than sympathy...

And do you still love me?
Do you feel the same?
And do I have a chance
of doing that old dance again?

download


Red Kite- Red Blooded Males
I was in love with you,
And I would have fought for you,
But you didn’t want me to.

download


The Wave Pictures- If You Leave It Alone
If I was the kind who was inclined to cry,
I'd cry for the strings I cut loose,
and I'd cry for the bridges I burned
Just to make myself a little room to move…

And for each dear black sentence a sheer lack of tears-
No I don't want those words back, I don't miss those years.
But if I could hold your knees again, under my chin again-
If I could kiss your nose, us both brittle and thin again…

download


Martha and Rufus Wainwright- Bring Back My Heart
I know I said
For you to take it,
But you don't use it,
And I got none in return…
And I know you tried
To cherish my love,
But let's admit,
You're not interested.

download


Malcolm Middleton- Fuck It, I Love You
I’ve been careless with my friends,
Even harder on myself …
Pretending I'm pretending that everything's okay,
So many masks I'm wearing my own face.
I can feel my toes burning from my deeds along the way-
Before you get up you've got to go down.
Fuck it, I love you, there you go.
Three little words on a mobile phone.
When are you coming home?
