Since You Came Along [Alice's POV]  
This is Part One of a fanmix about Jasper & Alice's relationship as I imagine it to be.

This one is from Alice's Point of View, where the love between Alice and Jasper is pure and changes Jasper more so than Alice. I see Alice as naturally upbeat and even more so since she was put in an asylum. If she was locked up, once out she would have undoubtedly thought that whatever happened to her later on, nothing could be as bad as what she remembers of her time there. Asylums in the 1920s were more traumatising than they were helpful (to the patients)... So these songs are more upbeat than those on Jasper's POV (to come) or Rosalie's POV of Emmett & Rosalie, but also quite touching.

[1 fanmix -10 songs]


.ZIP or .ZIP

1. I Won't Disagree / Kate Voegele :

"Lately you make me weaker in the knees
And race through my veins baby every time you're close to me
Take me away to places I ain't seen
They say you've got a hold on me:
And I won't disagree"

2. Beautiful Thing / The Pierces : I don't think this song could be anymore perfect.

"And it's a beautiful thing
You make me shy and
You make me proud
It's a beautiful thing
You make me laugh out loud
And when you pull me to you I unravel"

3. My Idea Of Heaven / Leigh Nash :

"I never thought you'd get here, why'd you make me wait?

And when I looked into your eyes, I recognised you were

My fate 

I've been living in a lonely shell, with no windows, to the world"

4. Finally Woken / Jem : As she does not remember anything before her time in the asylum, Alice must surely feel as if her love for Jasper has awoken her from a deep sleep.

"You see I've finally woken
From a long sleep
I'm ready to jump
To make that blind leap
Coz I now believe
I have the power in me
I've got the faith baby
I can truly be free

Finally Woken
Finally Woken"

5. We Will Not Grow Old / Lenka : This song works literally and metaphorically.

"You and me will be lying side by side
Forever, forever
Underneath this adolescent sky
Together, together
And you will hold my heart inside your hand
And you'll be the one to tell me

Oh we've got a long, long way to go
To get there
We'll get there
But oh, if there's one thing that we know
It's that we will not grow old"

6. Thinking About You / Ivy : Whenever Jasper might go into a 'dark place' and lose himself. Anyone with his kind of past and his conscience must have those moments of regrets or dark moments. Surely.

"Deep in another dream
Thinking about you
Feels like the final scene
Thinking about you
Save it for a little while
Thinking about you
Time for another smile
I’ve been thinking about you

But I never look back (Never look back)
Never look over my shoulder
And I never react (Never react)
Can’t go where I’ve gone before
No, I never look back (Never look back)
Now I’ve grown so much colder
And you're fading to black (Fading to black)
Like it’s nothing at all
It’s nothing at all"

7. You and I / Ingrid Michaelson :

"Oh lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France

Lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance

Lets get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants

From way up there, you and I, you and I

Well you might be a bit confused

And you might be a little bit bruised

But baby how we spoon like no one else

So I will help you read those books

If you will soothe my worried looks

And we will put the lonesome on the shelf


8. Magic / Colbie Caillat :

"You've got magic inside your finger tips
Its leaking out all over my skin
Everytime that I get close to you
Your making me weak with the way you
Look through those eyes

But all I see is your face
All I need is your touch
Wake me up with your lips
Come at me from up above"

9. From Where I Am Standing / Schuyler Fisk : When Bella comes along and Jasper is not sure he can control himself, and more specifically hates himself for it. Alice reassures him.

"From where I'm standing
You're the quiet side of the road
You're looking so lonely
And I can't stop looking at you
Your head is hanging
Trying to beat those goodbye blues
I bet you'll be fine
I bet you'll be fine

I guess it's not the way
You always planned it
Looks like you're heading for a
Crash landing
That's just the way it looks
From where I'm standing
From where I'm standing"

10. I Want To Hold Your Hand / T.V. Carpio :

"Yeah I tell you something
I think you'll understand
When i say that something
I wanna hold your hand"

I might actually just include Sweet and Low in a surprise J&A mix because it just doesn't fit with the rest of my sexy time for them. THEY ARE SO DIVERSE ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY. Complicated characters makes a perfectionist's (like me) head spin.

I miss the days when I actually enjoyed Coldplay. AND FOB. They were my all-time favorite and I have ALL their albums still, inc Folie A Deux, just because. I also miss old-time Panic! At The Disco and emo music. Ahhh!!!

Hmmm... the thing with Leona Ness for me is that she just doesnt feel original enough for her to trump her sellability factor for me. She's just too... manifactured. Even if she has a nice voice. It's like the later Christina Aguilera and Beyonce albums. I know I should like her.... but I don't.

Missy Higgins is somewhere on my extensive list of favs with "Peachy", "Where I stood" and "Warm Whispers". Those are definitely in future fanmixes. I'm a ridiculously big fan of Tegan and Sara's 'The Con'. I'm partial to The Bird and The Bee... my favs are "I'm A Broken Heart" and "Again & Again".

I've never really gotten into Vampire Weekend or Rainer Maria. I must admit though I haven't even heard of Ranier Maria....I'd love to though :) I'll definitely check her out now.

And now you aren't annoying me at all, I just had Government and Politics Coursework to hand in today so things have been busy. Sorry for the delayed response.

Wish me a Happy Birthday? :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Hope it was a great one!!

A surprise J&A mix? Why do you tease me so?? I'm so excited now!

I still have to buy FOB. Less Than Jake as well. And PANIC????? LOVE. What happened?? And Ok Go's first album - love that one.

Tegan and Sara - "The Con" is amazing!! I didn't think it could get better than "So Jealous" (which I'm still addicted) but they make such great music.

Again. Happy freaking birthday!!!!

That's why I put "So Jealous" on Rosalie's POV! It's just that they are so original... and most people don't actually know them, which is such a plus. I get bored of mainstream music... and yet I also love Number 1 hits, but that don't sound like Number 1s. For example, I can't stand Duffy, but I love Tinchy Stryder (although I was a fan of his before he became big). XD
