Mostly I prefer that this mix speak for itself. It is sort of an impressionistic rendering of [personal profile] argentumlupine's podfic, Half of Something Else. I will go into a little more detail about a few of the song choices, though: This Is Not a Test, Will It Go Round in Circles, and Three is a Magic Number, came about as a set; they're linked musically for me and, in order are basically: sometimes you do not succeed, I am making this shit up as I go along, and the obligatory roll credits poly song.

One of my goals going in was not to use any bandom song at all and there are a couple songs whose inclusion I would like to explain:

Lois and Clark/The New Adventures of Superman is about Frank starting work and also my strong disagreement with his stance on Superman - basically: this is kind of a joke (sorry, not sorry) and in this story I am making him play the part of Superman, and also Lois, because she's awesome. The song is also about new adventure and competency, for me, so: justified.

Let's Get It On is just- it's such a cliche and Marvin Gaye's voice is so great and it makes me happy and there's this kind of element of play in a lot of the sex scenes that's really great, so - you're welcome?

[personal profile] argentumlupine gave me a lot of feelings about Grant fucking Morrison and his, like, everything, in their podfic. This is sort of them on mixtape with the story.

Thanks to [personal profile] argentumlupine, [personal profile] readbystarlight, and [personal profile] sobluethesky, who let me pick their brains.
