Uncle Johnny, The Killers-Well the lyrics say it all. Since Raven left Jamie has a hole to fill in his life and he is filling it with white powder.
When everybody else refrained
My uncle Johnny did cocaine
He’s convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain
Girl From The North Country, Lions (Originally by Bob Dylan)-This song was featured on an episode of Sons of Anarchy. While much of the song does not fit Jamie, the lyric “She once was a true love of mine” certainly does.
Losing Touch, The Killers-This song represents Jamie’s continuing disconnect with the regular world as he moves further into the hidden world of the supernatural. Also, any song that has the words Impending Doom as part of the lyrics makes this a must for my list. This lyric speaks to Raven spreading rumors about Jamie in the Freakshow as their relationship deteriorated.
I’m In No Hurry, You Go Run
And Tell Your Friends I’m Losing Touch
Fill Their Heads With Rumours Of Impending Doom
It Must Be True
Lost, Coldplay-As you can tell Jamie has problems. He also thinks many of his problems are self inflicted.
Just because I’m hurting
Doesn’t mean I’m hurt
Doesn’t mean I didn’t get what I deserved
No better and no worse
Worlds Collide, Apocalyptica-A great instrumental that I usually find myself humming while driving to our games. Apocalyptica, self described Finnish Cello Rockers, is a great blend of the order of classical music with the chaos of a heavy metal band. This dual nature is similar to Jamie’s Coldy Logical Wizard’s mind and all of his emotional turmoil.
Gone Away, The Offspring-Another song about Raven being gone from Jamie’s life. He views her as being already dead after being overtaken by dark magic even if she is still technically alive.
The world has grown cold
Now that you’ve gone away
+1 Benny (with the intro text, I’m totally on the same page now)
