My pitiful entry for the getMeltdown! challenge...I wanted to do more, but I've been sick, and can't.

I Should Have Known This From The Start

A John Crichton & Aeryn Sun break-up/make-up fanmix 
Fractures through Twice Shy

1.  Elements by A Fine Frenzy.  Aeryn cannot accept Moya John in Fractures and I-Yensch, You-Yensch.

I died the day you disappeared, so why would you be welcome here?
Ride the wind that brought you back away

No you can't come in
No you can't come in

Oh the elements I do not fear but I fall apart when you appear 
Cos you are the greatest
The greatest disaster

2.  Lucky You by The National.  John struggles to understand Aeryn's loss and his unchanged love for her. (As an aside, this is one of my very favorite songs - LOVE The National).

You coulda made a safer bet
But what you break is what you get
You wake up in the bed you make
I think you made a big mistake

You own me
There's nothing you can do
You own me
You own me
Lucky you

3.  Walk Away by Bree Sharp.  Aeryn cannot watch John die again.  

The road is turning for me, 
the road is turning for you 
The light is red like a fire, 
but you drive on through 
I stay behind and hear you call 
"You should have known this from the start" 
I'm left with, I'm left with 
a piece of my heart 

4.  Prisoners of War by Bear McCreary.

This is an extended instrumental piece that makes me feel their separation and struggle from DWTB through Twice Shy.

5.  World Without by A Fine Frenzy.  There is nothing between them.

The weight of a mountain
The skin off your knees
From climbing back to me

We can work this out
I believe, although it seems impossible now
Keep the world without
Only the two of us count
Two voices loud
It is possible now
Though they wore us down
We'll find our way again

I am sorry you are not well, I hope you feel better soon! Your illness did not effect your choices at all- I love Lucky you, great song and a great fit for your mix!

Great instrumental piece as well, I had never heard it before, so thank you for introducing me to it!

Great entry!

Thank you!

The instrumental piece is from Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Wonderful show if you haven't seen it!

Hope you get better soon!!

Lovely choices for this mix, they're already headed for my iTunes compilation!
This is not the first time that some of your songs take that road: there was "Caledonia" from the Chi FanMix you posted of TF some time ago, and "Afterglow" from INX that was one of you vids.

You are indeed one of my best music pushers! ;-)

Yay, I'm so glad it worked for you and that you found new songs to enjoy :)

I am feeling a bit better today, thanks - just busy coughing up my lungs ;)

I really loved this mix - your choices were absolutely perfect, and you have an excellent taste in music. Particularly liked the last two songs.

Covers were extra pretty too.

Get better soon.

Thank you for the lovely feedback and well wishes :) I'm so happy it worked for you.

you have an excellent taste in music

*blush* My musical taste is eclectic - while assembling this I was listening to INXS, Freddie Mercury, and The Bangles ;)

Eclectic is the best way to be. And you've just proven my statement even more - those musicians rock. Particularly INXS :D

I loved this! The covers are really nice (I love that scene!) and the mix too! I loved 'You own me' most of all, never heard of it, but it fits John SO good! I also loved the instrumental piece a lot!

Very nice work and I hope you'll get better soon!

Thank you, jacqulee!

The picture I used is my favorite John/Aeryn moment of the entire series...when he reaches out to touch her with his finger and she opens her eyes for a second. It just makes my heart swell.

You might like this song too - my favorite by The National:
