Song: In the Dark (Sam/Dean)

I've been wibbling back and forth about whether or not I should post this because omg this is not my usual fannish medium, and omg my voice on the internets, and omg if we only had more time, we could do better. But we didn't have more time, and we were trying our damndest to finish this before I had to leave the country, so, y'know. This is what we have.

Basically my boyfriend is building a home studio and he was like, "Do you wanna record any of your songs?" and I was like, "What about this one?" So he listened to me sing it and asked, "...Is this about Supernatural?" He's so smart, you guys.

So! This is my belated 5x22 reaction post. EXCUSE ME WHILE I SING ABOUT MY FEELINGS. Well, Dean's feelings. I can't stress how important my boyfriend was to making this recording happen. I may have written the song, but he was invaluable with his input and his mysterious superpower of getting his various machines to do what I want them to. That's him playing the guitar solo at the end.

He also said I can name our band whatever I want.

Title: In the Dark
Band: The Camp Chitaqua Ragtime Ensemble
Length: 3:50
Characters: Sam/Dean (or Sam&Dean, if you have your gen goggles on)
Summary: Post-5x22. Life after Sam is still Sam all over the place.

download: Megaupload, Mediafire

wait for me down in the dark
i've done what you asked and i swear
i'll be there soon
summer's been burning your name into my bones
as if it wasn't there before

she calls my name in the night
but my name on her lips don't feel right
it's the same dreams all over again, all over again
but it's you who's burning, you who fell
it's me who's standing here in hell

wait for me down in the dark
'cause i will let sleeping dogs lie
i've felt their teeth
they parted my skin and they dragged me down
dragged me down, down, down
but baby i'd do it again, do it again
a wicked story none will tell
but i will tell it here in hell

they'll carve out my bones and devour my voice
they'll bury my exits, i'll rise again, rise again
burn out your soul and they'll drink of your blood
they'll turn you to mud but you'll rise again, rise again
we'll rise again

wait for me down in the dark

...this is ridiculously amazing, how are you even real. I MEAN THE BASS LINE ALONE. I've already listened to this ten times, it's so cool! So dark and moody and perfect for the show. I can totally see a vid set to this, IDK THERE WOULD BE A LOT OF EYE-FUCKING MEANINGFUL LOOKS OF RESENTMENT AND STUFF. Mad props (as the cool kids say) to your boyfriend, the sound is crazy good.

Your words and your music, god, Lass. It makes me cry and want to write fic worthy of using your lyrics in the title.

Worth waiting for, even if I didn't know I was waiting.

Guess what, I am listening to your Sam mix right now. I'll comment soon! :D

And wow, oh gosh, thank you! I'm flattered, man. I have this huge grin on my face and it's all your fault, and possibly partly Regina Spektor's. ;)

HOW DO YOU HAVE SO MUCH TALENT, it isn't even possible, you're secretly like some insane creative machine, right?

As soon as I read the lyrics, I knew I had to listen to the song. And then it was even better than I had even thought it even could be! (and I had high expectations to begin with.)

Even if I weren't an SPN fan, I would love this.

Totally am not an SPN fan, but those lyrics? Amazing. Totally downloading.

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2011-03-07 07:58 am (UTC)(link)
:D I had hoped the lyrics can be vague enough that I can sing it in front of a general audience. Hope you enjoy!

[identity profile] gold-bluepoint.livejournal.com 2011-03-06 07:50 am (UTC)(link)

And Supernatural is extremely musically oriented, too, so this is extra wonderful. Fan songs are one of those things one is frequently dubious of but this is REALLY GOOD and well-made and excellent.

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2011-03-07 08:05 am (UTC)(link)
Oh wow, thank you very much! I haven't actually heard many fansongs (or any, I think) so I had no idea of that scene. It was still a little nerve-wracking to go into the medium though, haha. Really glad you liked it!

It's me who's standing here in hell it's so heart wrenching and agh no words for these ~feelings~

Listening to it is so much better than reading the lyrics, which was pretty incredible in itself.

It's really special, talented, beautiful, gorgeous, and other such adjectives played on loop.


Also, home studio? That's really cool!

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2011-03-07 08:10 am (UTC)(link)
I am falling in love with his home studio, NGL. My boyfriend is like ten times cooler than I am. "You only visit me for my dog and Maschine," he says. Increasingly accurate! ;D

Thank you very much, bb! I'm thrilled it seems to be well-received! <3333

Your lyrics. So amazing. And your band-naming skills are equally awesome XD Now I am imagining the people of Camp Chitaqua putting together some ragged ensemble of musicians of varying skill who play every night in defiance of all the creepy things out there that want to eat them, and then everyone feels a little better.

Unfortunately I can't hear those lyrics 'cause Megaupload keeps telling me my download limit is exceeded, wtf. If it's not too much to ask, could you please upload it again? =)

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2011-03-06 01:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Thank you! The runner-up was "Claire Novak and The Thingstiels". And oh man, I would read that croatverse fic. Chuck plays the spoons and Risa plays the washboard. They salvaged an acoustic guitar on their last supply run, and Dean still remembers a few chords. Cas, of course, blows the jugs.

Sure can. Does this link work for you?: http://www.mediafire.com/?r16070fy7x46ot3

You have all these insights into Show that are just amazingballs. Please tell me you study something like Literature or Anthropology or Theology- because where do you get all these ideas from *hands*

Fansongs are probably my favourite thing in the whole world. Uhm, I'm editing the section for them on superwiki, would you mind if I created an entry for this? (Totally understandable if you don't want this linked outside lj, but I'd love to add it.)

[identity profile] twoskeletons.livejournal.com 2011-04-05 07:37 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh my goodness, sorry for the late reply. I just wanted to check with my co-musician to see if he was okay with this, and as it turns out, he is quite very okay with it! Thank you very much, I'm quite flattered you want to make an entry for this! :D
