Title: Who I Appear To Be
Fandom: Skins
Character: Effy Stonem
Spoilers/Warnings (if any): General series spoilers up to 3x05 "Freddie"
Notes: This mix is structured a little differently from my usual ones. It's in semi-chronological order, but the first half is about how other people perceive Effy (and how she wants them to perceive her), while the second half reflects the girl behind the walls. Enjoy! Comment if you download, and all that jazz.







Who I Appear To Be - Mediafire


01. THE HUSH SOUND honey
You've got a dark heart
You've got a cold kiss

02. NE-YO closer
Turn the lights off in this place and she shines just like a star
And I swear I know her face, I just don't know who you are
Turn the music up in here, I still hear her loud and clear
Like she's right there in my ear, telling me
That she wants to own me, to control me
Come closer

03. MISSY HIGGINS angela
Clear the way, she's coming through
With her eye-shadow of satin blue and her fingernails all painted blue
She's a danger you're addicted to

04. BRITNEY SPEARS circus
I feel the adrenaline moving through my veins, spotlight on me and I'm ready to break
I'm like a performer, the dance floor is my stage
Better be ready, hope that you feel the same

05. AMANDA GHOST filthy mind
Love is gone, my TV's on, I'm hanging with the boys
A life with fools, this world is cruel, we never dispense with toys
Could you make a suggestion for an act I would enjoy?

And I'm drowning, so come inside, welcome to my filthy mind

06. FIONA APPLE slow like honey

You moved like honey in my dream last night, yeah, some old fires were burning
You came near to me and you endeared to me, but you couldn't quite discern me

Does that scare you? I'll let you run away, but your heart will not oblige you
You'll remember me like a melody, yeah, I'll haunt the world inside you

07. K’S CHOICE tired

Life is easy when you fake it, right until you realize
Your happiness is unrelated to anything you have inside
And it doesn't feel right, and I'm mostly very tired

08. INGRID MICHAELSON keep breathing
The storm is coming but I don't mind
People are dying, I close my blinds

All that I know is I'm breathing, now
I want to change the world, instead I sleep

09. COUNTING CROWS colorblind
I am covered in skin, no one gets to come in
Pull me out from inside, I am folded and unfolded and unfolding
I am colorblind

10. CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG just like a woman
She takes just like a woman, yes she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl

11. NATALIE MERCHANT effigy
I'm an effigy, a parody of who I appear to be
Put your flaming torches under me

12. MANDY MOORE wild hope
Walk alone, through the crowded streets into the fading grey
Here and gone, like a decoration for the holiday

It's a wild hope, a wild hope, a wild hope
Everything will be alright

*THE GRABBIEST HANDS THAT EVER GRABBED*

Ahhhh, this is perfection! We have talked about the awesomeness of "Closer" and "Effigy", but ohhhh, "Colorblind" is so wildly appropriate and lovely and EFFY STONEM, YOU ARE A FABULOUS ENIGMA. And Charlotte Gainsbourg being all breathy and Dylanesque and it is MAGNIFIQUE.

♥!

(I am currently ploughing through the EPIC list of things you gave me to talk about. YOUR BLAME TAG IS IN PLAY, MISSY)

Ooh, yay, I AM GLAD YOU LIKE. SINCE THIS MIX CARRIES MORE THAN MY AVERAGE DOSE OF PRETENSION, AND ALL.

(AHAHAHA! I could say I'm sorry, but you know I'm really not. I'm trying to do all of mine in one go, and I had the insane idea to do PICTURES for all of them, so I'm doing a lot of running across the Internet looking at galleries. Also, attempting to do homework.)

I MISSED THIS, IDK HOW.

I love you for putting Charlotte Gainsbourg on here. It's all awesome, the lyrics fit Effy so well. ♥

I'd been waiting to use that Charlotte Gainsbourg song on a fanmix for FOREVER. And it just HIT ME with Effy.

Enjoy!
