Title: Mercury Candy Pop
Pairing: Sherlock/John
Spoilers: The Reichenbach Fall

This isn't exactly high-concept: relatively popular songs I associate with Sherlock/John. The vast majority of fanmixes I have seen consist of rather obscure (but good, I have found; fanmixes are an excellent way to find new artists) acoustic or indie music. This... doesn't.

//losing a psychosomatic limp//i just met you, and this is crazy//

1) A-Ha - "Take On Me"
So needless to say
I'm odds and ends
I'll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is okay
Say after me
"It's no better to be safe than sorry"

//caught up in a rush//the battlefield of london//my flatmate is insane//

2) Coldplay - "Charlie Brown"
Light a fire, a fire, a spark
Light a fire, a flame in my heart
We'll run wild oh
We'll be glowing in the dark

3) R.E.M. - "Losing My Religion"
Life is bigger
It's bigger than you
And you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no I've said too much
I set it up

4) Snow Patrol - "Called Out In The Dark"
It's like we just can't help ourselves
'Cause we don't know how to back down
We were called out to the streets
We were called in to the towns

//you're getting under my skin//

5) Owen Pallett - "Peach, Plum, Pear
You were knocking me down
With the palm of your eye
This was unlike the story
It was written to be
I was riding its back
When it used to ride me

//and maybe you're the one I'll finally let in//

6)Goo Goo Dolls - "Iris"
And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
You bleed just to know you're alive

7)The Eagles - "Desperado"
Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be raining, but there's a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you, before it's too late

8)David Bowie - "Cat People"
Still this pulsing night
A plague I call a heartbeat
Just be still with me
You wouldn't believe what I've been through

//this isn't like any love I thought it would be//

9)Depeche Mode - "Strangelove"
There'll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life liveable
But when you think I've had enough
From your sea of love
I'll take more than another riverfull
And I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

10)Meat Loaf - "Bat Out of Hell"
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And moonlight's shining through
Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven
I'll come crawling on back to you

11)Metallica - "Nothing Else Matters"
Never opened myself this way
Life is ours, we live it our way
All these words I don't just say
And nothing else matters

12)Rufus Wainwright - "Hallelujah"
You know, I used to live alone before I knew you
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

//I saw your broken body lying on the ground//

13)Coldplay - "The Scientist"
I was just guessing at numbers and figures
Pulling the puzzles apart
Questions of science, science and progress
Do not speak as loud as my heart
And tell me you love me, come back and haunt me
Oh and I rush to the start

14)Florence + The Machine - "No Light, No Light"
Would you leave me,
If I told you what I've done?
And would you need me,
If I told you what I've become?

//it's going to take a while to repair this//

15)Johnny Cash - "One"
Well its too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one but we're not the same
We get to carry each other

16)David Bowie - "Heroes"
I, I can remember
Standing by the wall
And the guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall

//finally I've found that I belong here//

17)Depeche Mode - "Home"
And I thank you for bringing me here
For showing me home
For singing these tears
Finally I've found that I belong here

This just damn near broke me. Especially Hallelujah and all by Depeche Mode. So thanks for that!
