Good question! I think we could use songs that fit their relationship as a whole, what do you guys say?

I love your Mary Crawley quote! And I like the idea of using songs that fit their relationship as a whole.

Okay, I swear almost every song I am now interpreting as reflecting Rich/Grace in S6. How about Seaweed Song by Passion Pit? This is my take on the lyrics:

Some day you'll see,
surrounded by angels,
floating atop of the sea,
abandon me.
Don't go where they go,
don't sing all the songs they sing.


Rich not wanting Grace to 'go where the angels go', to die.

Nobody knows you the way you know you,
but I think I do,
but I thought I knew.
Yeah, I thought I knew.


Grace is a very enigmatic personality and so Rich acknowledges that no one knows here like she does (it also fits in nicely with 'No on ****ing knows me!') But then says that he thought he did - it's especially fitting how it is first said in present tense, then almost corrected to past tense, like Rich could be forgetting it's now past.

Between these walls,
her back, strange glimpse, casts shadows frighteningly tall.
I slow to a crawl,
I jump and I yell but she hears nothing at all.


The way Grace 'haunts' him, the way Rich pleads for her to come back but can't reach her, she doesn't hear him really.

Stay, stay the same,
cause everything else will change.


He wants the memory of Grace to stay the same, to be true to her and not become distorted - he knows that everything in his life will change from now and he just wants his memory of her to always be with him, as she was. It could also be that he wants his feelings for her and his idea of their relationship to stay the same. He doesn't want any of it to fade.

The currents pull me out,
the tide has reached my chin,
the seaweed ticked skin.
Just let the water win.
I'm freezing to the bone,
you'll never be at home.
Just watch, you're running out,
just watch your body go.


I think the first part could reflect Rich's grief and, with 'just let the water win', an urge to let it take him over - which I'm sure he feels at times. Then at last, the statement that Grace will never be 'home', will never again live in the world, she's 'running out of the world', her body has gone.

Analysing lyrics is fun :')

Yeah they should represent their relationship as a whole, but it's just called S6 mix, because we did one after series 5 last year

Great songs guys I've been listening to all the songs and I'm already finding it hard to choose my favorites.
When should we stop suggesting songs?

I approve this decision to be honest.
We can pretend better that season 6 is actually an AU of season 5.

I think we should just suggest as many as we want and then maybe vote on favourites?

And okay, does this mean we shouldn't choose songs which would only reflect their relationship in S5? (Probably a stupid question, but I just want to check.)

I'm fine with just a gen3 Hardlet mix, maybe we could just make it side B to the one we already have. S6 doesn't seserve its own Hardlet soundtrack

Just representing their relationship, that's all

When we have the list I guess we'll vote the songs out like we did last time We give the song a pointing system where they all start with [10] and then each time we vote we do [+2] for a song we like and [-2] for a song we don't like. When we hit zero for a song then it's out.
If you don't understand maybe someone else can explain it better than me

Should we stop at 40/45 songs?

Any more song suggestions? Or should we stop now, because we've already got more than 40

Hardlet shippers shouldn’t be called shippers anymore. They should be called survivors.

Oh can I just add a few more:

Transatlanticism - Death Cab For Cutie (If you hear this I don't think it'll need much explanation!)

Black Hole - Aqualung

Sooner or later this will fall apart
It takes more than science to save a failing heart
I wanted to keep you and hide you from the sun
but no one could reach you


Makes me think of Grace dying.


You say I'm a black hole
Sigularity
My own supernova
A blazing blind catastrophe
And for once I was a star
A long time before that
Somebody's sun


This makes me think of Rich before and after Grace - 'For once I was a star, a long time before that, somebody's sun'

But enough of these pointless noises
Enough of just counting down
This is not a test
If hope is not the answer then maybe I misunderstood Oh the question
Because there must be someway
I want it so so..
There's always someway

Well enough of these final nothings
There's no time to reconsider
So love was not the answer but maybe I misunderstood the question
Because it must be somewhere
I read it somewhere
There's always someway


This makes me think of them both as people - 'if love is not the answer, then maybe I misunderstood the question' explains them both well. 'There must be some way, there's always some way' makes me think of Rich initially unable to accept Grace's death, then 'so love was not the answer' him realising that his love for couldn't save her. The end - 'I read it somewhere, there's always some way' makes me think of Grace's fairytales and the way they caused her to believe in happy endings.

The First Day Of My Life - Bright Eyes


Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

-

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me


This makes me think of their relationship as a whole. 'I think I was blind before I met you' fits well from Rich's POV, and 'I'm glad I didn't die before I met you' from Grace's. The rest of the song describes their relationship really well, and the sweetness of it ('I mean I really think you like me') is an added bonus as it fits them too.

it's not mine, I've found it here a while ago.
but I think it's true, it's an hard work to ship a couple that the writers hate and destroy. but someone has to do it, because "you don't choose the ship, is the ship that choose you"
