Erica Durance Board 8 Year Anniversary Celebration: "You're never gonna fade, you'll be the main attraction"








Erica About E r i c a
"Who am I? Good question! I have no idea. I try to do the best with what I'm given. I make mistakes like anyone else.
I try to improve myself as much as I can with every experience. I do not take myself too seriously! Though my husband might disagree!
I admittedly take my work seriously. I'm intense about anything I love or believe in and that's my work and my family.
Outside of that, I try to treat everyone with decency, and not define people by their profession, but by their actions. A cliché, but true.++

Exceptional, Radiant, Inspiring, Charming, Amazing ... Delightful, Underrated, Real, Accepting, Nurturing, Charismatic, Everything ..
Those are only a handful of words I can describe her with, so it is no wonder that we've been talking about her for the past 8 years and still love it. Our love and appreciation of her and her talent have only increased with time and with every project. We enjoy discussing her old projects, especially the amazing portrayal of Lois Lane on Smallville, as well current and future ones. And of course "fab physical attributes" and impeccable fashion sense are always something to talk about. Because of her, I met some great friends and had a great experience posting with them over the years.
Thanks to everyone who's ever been a part of making this board the amazing board it is.

About Erica
"She was a little star the first time I met her," recalls Kathy Covert, her voice and acting coach at Prairie Bible College,
"even in the fourth grade, she lit up a room. She still does that, totally apart from her industry persona.
No matter what she does and doesn't do, people are going to love her regardless. It's been like that since she was little."



Still The One: The Erica Durance Board 8 Year Anniversary Soundtrack


Can you believe it's been eight years already? We've spent eight years on this board talking about Erica and how amazing she is
and what's even more amazing is that Smallville's been off the air for almost six years now and our main source of conversation is still her incredible portrayal of the iconic reporter, Lois Lane
and the role she played in the legendary relationship between Lois Lane and Clark Kent... a.k.a the best couple of ALL TIME ... a.k.a. my OTP always and forever.

I thought I'd call this soundtrack "Still the One" because she's "still" my favourite Lois and she's "still the one" we love and talk about after all these years. I actually feel like I'm "still falling for [her]"
because everytime I find out something new about her and hear stories about her kindness and compassion and how sweet she is to her fans it just makes me love her more.

This soundtrack is essentially my love letter to Erica and my way of saying thank you to her for being the wonderful person she is.
I've compiled songs that I love that explain how I feel about her because"God Only Knows" what we'd have done or where we'd be without her in her lives. I truly feel like she was my "flashlight" through the darker times of Smallville and she kept me going when I felt like giving up.

As her show Saving Hope draws to a close, I look forward to seeing what's next for her. I hope that she does get the chance to "try everything", because I'm still waiting to see her on the big screen with Amy Adams, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pratt, Josh Hutcherson and basically all of my favourite actors.
Erica, thank you for being who you are and for everything you've done for your fans and for the role of Lois.
Smallville will forever have a piece of a my heart because of what you did for Lois Lane as an independent character and all of the unique and memorable moments you brought to the relationship between Lois and Clark.
Thank you for giving one hundred percent in everything you do. Thank you for the memories. Thank you for everything that's to come. I love you and I will always support you.


Soundtrack Compilation & Write-up by now.it.all.begins (Rachel)
Soundtrack Art by dancing in the rain (Ray)


1. Still the One by Ingrid Michaelson

I'll never leave you or make you choose
I'm still the one that's in love with you

I'll let you win, I'll let you lose
I'm still the one that's in love with you

I wanna just dance forever
Keep spinning us into something new
You are the one, I am the two
I'm still the one that's in love with you


2. God Only Knows by Brian Wilson and Various Artists

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you


3. Cheerleader by Pentatonix

Oh, I think that I've found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her
Oh, I think that I've found myself a cheerleader
She is always right there when I need her


4. Still Falling for You by Ellie Goulding

Beautiful mind
Your heart got a story with mine
Your heart got me hurting at times
Your heart gave me new kind of highs
Your heart got me feeling so fine
So what to do
Still falling for you
Still falling for you

It took us a while
With every breath a new day
With love on the line
We've had our share of mistakes
But all your flaws and scars are mine
Still falling for you
Still falling for you


5. Beautiful to Me by Olly Murs

My love don't ever change the way you are
You light the sky just like a star
I don't care what you see
You're beautiful to me

Love, open your heart and let it go
You're so amazing. Don't you know?
I don't care what you see
You're beautiful to me

6. I Believe in You By Michael Buble

I believe in starting over
I can see that your heart is true
I believe in good things coming back to you
You're the light that lifts me higher
So bright, you guide me through
I believe in you


7. Still by Seinabo Sey

I've been thinking 'bout tomorrow
Instead of drowning in the past
Oh we had good times even back when
Dreams were all we had to last

So as I wake up this bright morning
Nothing's gonna bring me down
Waves are singing, wind is borning
Summer's here to stick around

I still, remember me before you
I will, no longer need your rescue
Since I still, remember me before you
I'm no fool
Tell 'em, I'm no fool


8. Song 2 You by Victoria Justice and Leon Thomas III

I'll give you my song
These words to you
Sing you what I feel
My soul is true.
I don't have the world
Can't give it to you girl
But all that I can do (all that I can do)
Is give the song to you.


9. All of Me by John Legend

'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you


10. See You Again/Love Me Like You Do/Sugar (Acoustic Mash-up) by Meghan Davies

Your sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me?
I'm right here, 'cause I need
Little love, a little sympathy
Yeah, you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar
Yes, please
Won't you come and put it down on me?




11. Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon

Oh don't you dare look back
Just keep your eyes on me
I said you're holding back
She said shut up and dance with me
This woman is my destiny
She said oh oh oh
Shut up and dance with me


12. Gypsy Heart by Colbie Caillat

If I'm in your arms, I can dream all day
If there's clouds in the sky, we can wish them away
'cause I need you right now, and I don't wanna wait
So I walk 'til I run, and I run 'til I fly
'cause

I can't wait to get back out on the road
I'm counting every mile, 'til I get where I'm going
I don't even care, if it's fast or it's slow
As long as it's taking me to ya


13. Heartbeat Song by Kelly Clarkson

This is my heartbeat song and I'm gonna play it
Been so long I forgot how to turn it up, up, up, up all night long
Oh up, up all night long
This is my heartbeat song and I'm gonna play it
Turned it on
But I know you can take it up, up, up, up all night long
Oh up, up all night long


14. Try Everything by Shakira

I messed up tonight, I lost another fight
I still mess up but I'll just start again
I keep falling down, I keep on hitting the ground
I always get up now to see what's next

Birds don't just fly, they fall down and get up
Nobody learns without getting it wrong

I won't give up, no I won't give in
'Til I reach the end and then I'll start again
No, I won't leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail
I won't give up, no I won't give in
'Til I reach the end and then I'll start again
No, I won't leave, I wanna try everything
I wanna try even though I could fail


15. Can't Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake

I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
I can't take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally
Room on lock the way we rock it, so don't stop

And under the lights when everything goes
Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close
When we move, well, you already know
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance

16. Blank Space/Style by Louisa Wendorff feat. Devin Dawson

I got that James Dean daydream look in my eye
And you got that red lip classic thing that I like
And when we go crashing down, we come back every time
'Cause we never go out of style
We never go out of style


17. Flashlight by Megan Nicole

I got all I need when I got you and I
I look around me, and see a sweet life
I'm stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're getting me, getting me, through the night
Kick start my heart when you shine it in my eyes
Can't lie, it's a sweet life
Stuck in the dark but you're my flashlight
You're getting me, getting me, through the night
'Cause you're my flashlight (flashlight)
You're my flashlight (flashlight), you're my flashlight


18. Make It Shine by Victoria Justice

You don't have to be afraid to put your dream in action
You're never gonna fade you'll be the main attraction
Not a fantasy
Just remember me
When it turns out right
'Cause you know that if you live in your imagination
Tomorrow you'll be everybody's fascination
In my victory
Just remember me
When I make it shine


19. Go the Distance by Kurt Hugo Schneider feat. Shawn Hook

I have often dreamed of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer when they see my face
And a voice keeps saying, this is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday, I can go the distance
I will find my way if I can be strong
I know every mile, will be worth my while
When I go the distance, I'll be right where I belong


20. Ain't Got Far to Go by Jess Glynne

I know
That I ain't got far to go, go, go
Cause I spent forever waiting
And it's no longer a dream
And now I've landed on my feet
And I ain't got far to go




"I learned about discipline, that nothing absolutely nothing worth having comes easily,
and I learned to laugh at myself, which is always beneficial."



"I have an oddball sense of humor. So when there was an episode at a comic book convention -
of course they end up having Lois dress up all sexy and stuff - but really what I would dress up like is a Stormtrooper.
That's what I'd do, because it's hilarious, and who doesn't want to be that at some point, right? So then they made something out of that."




Congrats
