i'd forgotten how much i loved this series until i started re-reading it earlier this week. it's fabulous! so what do i do when i like a series? i make a soundtrack of course. lame much?
anywho, i hope you all enjoy it, and don't forget to click the music notes to download the songs.

The Mediator
Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

zip file with album art and fullsized poster

01. terra naomi - say it's possible
it's only a chance to pave the path we're on / i know there are more exciting things to talk about /
i see the course we're on spinning farther from what i know

The intro/beginning, when Suze arrives in California. It has that new-beginning-apprehension going on.

02. the perishers - trouble sleeping
i'm having trouble sleeping / you're jumping in my bed / twisting in my head

Suze's conflict about Jesse. She obviously likes him, but isn't sure what to do about him.

03. bloc party - signs
i see the signs now all the time / that you're not dead, you're sleeping
i believe in anything that brings you back home to me

Suze starts to adjust her new school, etc. I also like that it has these dark lyrics, even though the song sounds upbeat.

04. arctic monkeys - d is for dangerous
the parallel universe perhaps could be the perfect scene /
you should know you're his favourite worst nightmare

This is Suze's ghost-butt-kicking theme song. It's full of a kind of hostile energy. Love it.

05. death cab for cutie - i will possess your heart
how i wish you could see the potential/ the potential of you and me
and i know that you'll find love / that i will possess your heart

Suze realizes that she can't help but fall for Jesse, but she can't seem to get him to like her back either.

06. nightmare of you - my name is trouble
sad minion of mine, don't be so unkind / i want to kiss you on the mouth and tell you /
i'm your biggest fan

Paul Slater's "theme". Love the mood of the song, and the lyrics are perfect.

07. missy higgins - the special two
and we will only need each other / we'll breathe together
our hands will not be taught to hold another's / when we're the special two.

When Suze thinks that Jesse has moved on after they find his body. She's distraught that he's gone and feels guilty about not being able to save him from Maria.

08. travis - love will come through
well I stand at the crossroads / of highroads and lowroads
if it's real what I'm feeling / there's no makebelieving

I call it a "filler song" because it's just a song that encompasses Suze's relief at having Jesse back, but it isn't a specific event in particular.

09. laura veirs - galaxies
when we kiss bears and boulders vibrate through the air /
gravity is dead you see / no gravity. . .all I need is beating red

Suze and Jesse.

10. au revoir simone - shadows
every night that we say goodnight / i'm haunted by your eyes
don't blame it on your shadows

Suze desperately wants Jesse to be as in love with her as she is with him. This is when Paul suggests that Suze should let him go back in time to save Jesse from his untimely death, and Suze is torn between wanting to keep Jesse for herself and giving him the long life he deserves.

11. cary brothers - ride
if i told you you were right / would you take my hand tonight?
if i told you the reasons why / would you leave your life and ride?

Suze's agonizing decision to save human Jesse when she travels back in time. She can't rob him of his life just so she can have him for herself.

12. frou frou - let go
it gains the more it gives / and then advances with the form
so, honey, back for more / can't you see that all the stuff's essential?

I love this as the credits song. It's not too happy or anything, but it has a hopeful sound. Like it's just the beginning.

Aww well thank you! I love this series as well. I've heard about the movie, but I believe it was cancelled, if I recall correctly. And I've always thought it would make a better TV show- trying to fit all six books into one movie would simply not do them justice.
Glad you enjoyed it!
