Out of Luck: songs for a wannabe femme-fatale  



      NOTES: This was originally a mix for an extreme-AU version of a character. I'm still listening to the mix, so I decided to make it cohesive and pretty primarily for my own enjoyment. (The cover uses Paloma Faith's LP cover - I was looking for a singer with red hair, but it turned out I got rid of the red.) This mix includes a lot of 50s/60s stuff to put it into "period" (sorry if the song choices seem obvious) as well as a lot of modern music that "fits". 
    


i. ALIBI - Dessa

you've always been cunning
with those brave escapes


ii. BABY DID A BAD BAD THING - Chris Isaak

baby did a bad, bad thing

iii. MY HEART BELONGS TO DADDY - Julie London

yes, my heart belongs to daddy
and I simply couldn't be bad

so if you get romantic, laddie
let me warn you right from the start
that my heart belongs to daddy
and daddy, he has my heart


iv. I WANT TO BE EVIL (remix) - Eartha Kitt

and whatever I've got
I'm eager to lose

iv. SOUR TIMES - Portishead

cause nobody loves me
it's true
not like you do


v. THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKING - Nancy Sinatra

I just got me a brand new box of matches
and what he's got you ain't had time to learn


vi.  KINDA OUTTA LUCK - Lana Del Rey

you never cared what I did at all
motel singer at a silver ball
I did what I had to do


babe you can see that I'm danger
glamorous but I'm deranged, yeah
teetering off of the stage, yeah
time to give in to the kindness of strangers


vii. SHADOW WOMAN - Julie London

but I'm a woman, too
so please
let him go, let him go,
let him go
shadow woman


viii. I'M A FOOL TO WANT YOU - Peggy Lee

I'm a fool to hold you
to seek a kiss not my alone
to share a kiss the devil has known


iv. THE TRUTH - Handsome Boys Modeling School

you wear a thin disguise
it's from yourself you hide
just take a look at us
we are heading for a fall

x. CHICK HABIT - April March

a girl's not a tonic or a pill
hang up the chick habit
hang it up, daddy
you're just heading for a spill


xiLITTLE BLACK MESS - SHIVAREE

it fits like a glove now
this little black mess


xii. BYE BYE BLACKBIRD - Peggy Lee

pack up all my cares and woe
here I go
singing low
