Frankenmix 8.0 [December Halfway] - Romantic Comedy.

I've never managed to finish a Frankenmix before, but the latest one, to pick out a soundtrack to the perfect romantic comedy, inspired me.

My mix, complete with tracks, is under the cut!

The Tracklist

  1. Opening Credits - Ape Man by Zombina and the Skeletones

    All I need is an ape man to hold in my arms,
    Thriller gorilla to keep me safe from harm,
    I wanna date a chimpanzee and feel that King Kong vibe,
    Simian Don Juan monkey business is really gonna blow my mind.


  2. Introduction of the Kickass, Yet Lonely Heroine - 411 (La La La) - Kenickie

    There's not many places to go here
    I`ve seen them all
    theres not many faces I know here
    the others I don't want to know

    She never gets home sick
    she never feels shy
    people tell me I'm lonely
    you know its a lie


  3. Introduction of the Sensitive, Yet Manly Hero - You Can't Spend Your Whole Life Hanging Around With Arseholes - Ballboy

    and you're running round town with a fistful of money
    that you got from a hole in the wall and it's funny that you
    you didn't see it there before

    you're with a man on the piss and a man on a mission
    and a man of respect and exalted position
    he is not like
    he's not like those other men


  4. Our Heroes Meet - The Record Store - The Brunettes

    Ever since I started working at the record store
    I get to flirt with many girls
    More than I did before
    There are tall, short, blonde and brunette but
    None can conversate me like how we used to get


  5. Our Heroes Go On a Wacky First Date - Strange Powers - The Magnetic Fields

    on the ferris wheel
    looking out on Coney Island
    under more stars than
    there are prostitutes in Thailand
    our hair in the air
    our lips blue from cotton candy
    when we kiss it feels
    like a flying saucer landing

    nb. I took 'wacky' to mean weird rather than outright disastrous. Because there is nothing bad about this song but it is odd.

  6. Our Heroes Deconstruct Each Other With Their Respective Best Friends - Jonathan David - Belle and Sebastian

    I know you like her
    Well I like her too
    I know she likes you


  7. Our Heroes Have a Significantly Better Second Date - G.P.T. - Martha Wainwright [m4a]

    Catch a feel or cop a ride
    I won't be late, I won't decline
    Your invite tonight this starry cold night
    Your invite tonight, yeah

    It's six o'clock get up the block
    Don't be scared, don't be shocked
    I'll be there tonight
    On yours and mine's night
    I'm yours and mine tonight

    [...]

    The sun is down
    You'll act the clown, I'll dance around
    We'll hit the town
    Your shirt is stained my dress is frayed
    But later they'll go


  8. The Significant Moment in Which Our Heroes Fall in Love (montage) - Love Comes To Me - Bonnie Prince Billy

    O, sugar won't you be my only
    I'm a hard-hearted honey-pot hungry shepherd
    And I'm longing to be born for you, that's her

    Love comes to you
    Love comes and all
    It's your hands, your heart, your lip
    And that is all

    In the night time when you feel me
    And the backs of your knees conceal me
    And your eyeballs unreal me
    Love comes to me
    Love comes to me


  9. Our Heroes Make Love for the First Time - Anything - Martina Topley-Bird

    No doubt
    You're gonna be thinkin'
    I'll run out
    That's where you're so mistaken
    You take me to a high
    Of just no other kind
    I don't want anything (but you)
    I don't need anything (but you)
    I don't want anything (but you)
    I don't need anything (but you)


  10. The Tragic Misunderstanding and Breakup - Something of an End - My Brightest Diamond

    It was something of an end
    Of a lovely and a wild thing
    So beautiful in the morning
    You're beautiful
    So beautiful
    You're beautiful
    In the morning

    And I can't seem to get it through your head
    No matter what I do
    I can't seem to get it through your head
    That I will always love you


  11. The Montage of Attempting to Move On and Failing Horribly - Cup of Coffee - Garbage

    So no, of course, we can't be friends
    Not while I'm still this obsessed
    I guess I always knew the score
    This is how our story ends

    I smoke your brand of cigarettes
    And pray that you might give me a call
    I lie around in bed all day just staring at the walls
    Hanging round bars at night wishing I had never been born
    And give myself to anyone who wants to take me home


  12. The Montage of Missing Each Other - That's How I Knew This Story Would Break My Heart - Aimee Mann

    So, like a ghost in the snow
    I'm getting ready to go
    'Cause baby, that's all I know –
    How to open the door
    And though the exit is crude
    It saves me coming unglued
    For when you're not in the mood
    For the gloves and the canvas floor

    That's how I knew this story would break my heart


  13. The Chance Meeting - Been so Long - Vetiver

    I can’t believe that you’re knocking, Knocking at my door
    It’s been so long, been so long
    Fate has a way of showing, I’m where you belong
    It’s been so long, been so long
    The sound of my heart stopping–
    A surprising song
    It’s been so long, been so long
    Time has a way of knowing
    What we have is strong
    Oh it’s been so long, been so long


  14. The Reconciliation - 3am Phonecall - Kathryn Williams

    She looked up quick and back down
    Like a flash from a light house
    He noticed the sea asleep in her eyes
    He knew from that point
    That this was her gift to him
    Movement of the moon
    And love with no sad end

    It's the game you've entered
    And life's what you're getting
    Life has always been yours


  15. Closing Credits - Something Changed - Pulp

    I wrote this song two hours before we met.
    I didn't know your name or what you looked like yet.
    Oh I could have stayed at home and gone to bed.
    I could have gone to see a film instead.
    You might have changed your mind and seen your friends.
    Life could have been very different but then,
    something changed.
    Do you believe that there's someone up above?
    Does he have a timetable directing acts of love?
