Happy friday, everyone! (Or possibly Thursday, I’m not sure where in the world the rest of you are)

This week, I'd like to see what you all think about music, both in universe and in fandom. Because everyone likes music, right?

In-Universe
Now, we all know that Tony Stark loves ACDC, but what do our two favourites listen to? Does Natasha listen to classical Russian? Does Clint listen to American rock? Or do they roll their eyes at these potential clichés and go their own way?

Do they listen to music to relax? While they work out or spar? To fall asleep? When they’re in the mood, do they make cheesy soundtracks for their missions? Do they swap music recommendations regularly?

Or, maybe, one of them didn't really have much music taste, and the other keeps recomemending stuff. Or perhaps neither of them are that interested in music, and they're laughing at us all.

Do either of them sing, or play an instrument?

Fandom
I know we have a fanmix tag on this journal, and someone must run the 8tracks account, so it’s probably safe to say you like fanmixes.

What do you look for in a mix? Lyrics? Style? A theme that runs through each song?

Have you ever heard a song and just gone: that’s it, this is perfect, there will never be a better song for Clint/Nat/Clintasha? What song is it?


Things to remember:
1) Always label NSFW (Not Safe For Work) stuff in the title and post under a cut.
2) Fic and artwork needs to have a rating and warnings (or you can say that you’ve chosen not to use warnings).
3) For people with annoying internet connections, say in the title if a comment is graphic/images/gif-heavy and post picspams under a cut.
4) Have a damn good time! (Because if that’s not happening then this post has clearly failed.)

I'm still trying to get used to this bar and livejournal in general, so if there's anything wrong with this post, let me know!

A Gift From: WhiskyInMind
Type Of Gift: Fic & Accompanying Soundtrack
Title: Make The World Brand New
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] anuna_81
Rating: 15
Warnings: Red Room experimentation, talk of eugenics, under age enforced pregnancy
Summary/Prompt Used: Five different Christmases (I tried to touch on as many of the prompts as possible!)
Author's Note: tarts a little angstier than I intended, but please stick with it - there is a happy ending! Also, I am so sorry but real life butted in and I ran out of time so technically this is only 3 of the 5 Christmases. The other two will be posted once reveals are done. In the meantime, I hope the soundtrack will tide you over!

A Gift From: [livejournal.com profile] spyforaday
Type Of Gift: Gift Basket (Fanmix)
Title: A Compromised Position: a Clintasha Fanmix
A Gift For: [livejournal.com profile] chrisfaithalin
Rating: PG for language
Warnings: Some songs contain lyrics that may be considered explicit depending on your sensitivity
Summary/Prompt Used: From unstoppable tactical partnership to irrepressible committed relationship
Author's Note: Listen as Strike Team Delta evolves from the most successful partnership in the field into the intense, personal partnership they’ve denied themselves for years. Call it Clintasha, call it BlackHawk, call it cheesy, but these rock tunes tell a story of insecurity, of compromise, of understanding, of lust, of love, and a devotion that defies explanation and transcends gods, monsters, and super secret government organizations. (10 tracks)
Disclaimer: For the record this is all for fun, not for my profit, I paid for each and every one of those tunes, nothing was pirated, and I love that I'm introducing this music to a new audience.

Author's Note: This fanmix is a musical interpretation of my giftee's prompt; everything else sort of sprang from that!

Hello, oh denizens of This Bar.

Please forgive the lateness of this post- I could give you many excuses, but the truth is that I forgot yesterday was Friday. My life is the most difficult of them all.


MOVING ON.

Today I want to talk to you about music and our spies.

What kind of music do you think they like, if they like any at all? Does Clint listen to Panic! At the Disco! when he works out? Does Natasha like to make love to Mahler?

And while we're at it, what about when you're creating? What kind of music gets you in the spysassin mood? Do you have a C/N anthem? Are there any fics that you like that use music in them, or inspire you to listen to a specific song?

Under the cut: Music! To listen to!

HAPPY ENDING: thank you so much to forget_why, who managed to get the song to me! This is the Very Best Bar!

Yes, this is slightly ridiculous. But isn't it nice that our Bar is the kind of place where the members feel comfortable with making ridiculous requests?

A few weeks back, I came up with an idea for an Avengers fanmix. It was my fastest ever assembled mix, in fact - I had the tracklisting settled in less than an hour, and I spent fifteen minutes sourcing pics for the covers, and another fifteen making them. The only problem? I can't get my hands on one of the songs!!!

Specifically, 'The Skyscraper Blues' by Tony Bennett.

I can't seem to find it, or the only album it's on ('Hometown, my town') on any free websites - not even Pirate Bay! I can't find this CD at any of the libraries I'm a member of (and one of them is now on an interlibrary network, which means it's not in about 20 libraries!). I would be happy to buy this off amazon or similar, but... amazon and iTunes won't sell you anything downloadable unless you have a US account, including a legitimate US address and US-issued credit card/itunes voucher. Amazon.uk is the same, only substitute 'United Kingdom'. I can't find this song on iTunes Australia at all, and... to be honest, even if I could I wouldn't because the 60% markup for the exact same damn song/mp3file you would buy in the US offends me on a personal level.

I could change the song, maybe, but it's so damn fitting!!!

So anyway, is there anybody out there who has a copy of this song they could upload to rapidgator, mediafile or similar so I could download it? If there's someone out there willing to buy it I'm happy to pay you back, or even swap music, if there's some rare music you're looking for that I might have or be able to source? Heck, I'll write some BlackHawk fic on request if you'd like!

*puppy dog eyes* Pretty, pretty, please, with my almost-finished (and completely sourced) BlackHawk fanmix on top??
