Oh Lost. Look what you made me do. ;)

Will You Love Me Just a Little?
A 'Sawyer/Juliet in the 70s' Mix

Okay, all this season on Lost (what, I know, I'm not usually fandomy about it) I've been really enjoying all the Sawyer and Juliet interaction. They're buddies with matching rifles! She makes him go sit in a corner to calm down sometimes! They're so refeshingly straightforward and nonchalant with each other! Out of the DRAMATIC LOVE QUADRANGLE those two have always been the awesome ones, so it's no surprise I'm down with ditching their more emo counterparts.

Now I just want to watch them roll around the island kicking ass, frolicking in bell bottoms and enjoing the free love of the 70s! AND SO MY BRAIN CREATED THIS: I present to you my 'The Songs Sawyer and Juliet Totally Fell in Love to Back in '74-'77' mix! All the songs come from before 1977, though it skews earlier than intended. Clearly, the Dharma sub isn't a very reliable purveyor of records. I mean, Geronimo Jackson. It roughly follows the progression of their relationship and also the structure of "LaFleur".

THANKS FOR THE CRACK LOST! I swear, you suddenly move a pairing I like into the '70s and I just cannot resist. :D

01. Something in the Way She Moves (1968)
James Taylor

There's something in the way she moves,
Or looks my way, or calls my name,
That seems to leave this troubled world behind
If I'm feeling down and blue,
Or troubled by some foolish game,
She always seems to make me change my mind

And I feel fine anytime she's around me now,
She's around me now
Just about all the time
And if I'm well you can tell she's been with me now,
She's been with me now quite a long, long time
And I feel fine

Sawyer: Thanks for getting my back with that whole 'beach' issue.
Juliet: You should thank me, it was a stupid idea.
Sawyer: (grins) Well, what does that say about you agreeing with me?

02. Conversation (1970)
Joni Mitchell

He says she keeps him guessing
I know she keeps him down
She speaks in sorry sentences
Miraculous repentances -
I don't believe her

Tomorrow he will come to me
And speak his soul,
endlessly and he'll ask me why -
Why can't I leave her?
He comes for conversation
I comfort him sometimes
Comfort and consultation
He knows that's what he'll find

Juliet: We didn't get a chance to finish our conversation.
Sawyer: What conversation was that?
Juliet: The one where they started shooting at us.
The one where you were about to tell me how it felt to see Kate again.
Sawyer: I wasn't about to tell you anything.
Juliet: Why don't you tell me now?

03. Sister Golden Hair (1975)

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don't mind sayin', I just can't make it

Well, I keep on thinkin' 'bout you, Sister Golden Hair surprise
And I just can't live without you; can't you see it in my eyes?

Sawyer: Well, what about me?
You really gonna leave me here with the mad scientist and Mr. I speak to dead people?
And Jin, who's a hell of a nice guy but not exactly the greatest conversationalist.
Juliet: You'll be fine.
Sawyer: Maybe. But who's gonna get my back?
Come on. Just give me two weeks, that's all I'm asking.
Two weeks.
Juliet: All right, two weeks.

04. In My Life (1965)
The Beatles

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Sawyer: I had a thing for a girl once. And I had a shot at her, but I didn't take it.
For a little while, I'd lay in bed every night wonderin' if that was a mistake.
Wonderin' if I'd ever stop thinking about her.
But now I can barely remember what she looks like.
And her face it's... she's just gone. And she ain't ever coming back.
So, is three years long enough to get over someone? Absolutely.

05. Our House (1970)
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young

Our house is a very, very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you

I'll light the fire
While you place the flowers in the jar
That you bought today

Juliet: Is that for me?

06. You Can Close Your Eyes (1971)
James Taylor & Joni Mitchell

So close your eyes
You can close your eyes, it's all right
I don't know no love songs
And I can't sing the blues anymore
But I can sing this song
And you can sing this song
When I'm gone

Seriously, I wound up loving the idea of this mix so much. Damn, I can't believe Lost created three years of relative happiness! I know we're supposed to interpret that scene about Kate as 'Sawyer sure is a good liar!' or OH THE IRONY HE SEES HER FACE AND IT ALL COMES RUSHING BACK but I just can't. Sawyer and Juliet are so awesome and functional. I love them. Watch it LOST, you're on notice.

LMAO! Also, I just realized the vocalists I picked to represent James and Juliet are James and Joni.
Unintentional, I swear. I'm not that cheesy. Okay, maybe I am, but I wasn't. XD

Thanks for listening!

Did I ever tell you you're my hero? Seriously. You are the wind beneath my wings bb! This mix is AWESOME! I want to see more Juliet/Sawyer in the 70s! Free love! Bell bottoms! I want to see Juliet make a daisy chain out of all the flowers that Sawyer gives her and put them in her hair! DON'T MESS THIS UP SHOW!

Seriously though, this mix is like the best idea to ever exist. I love it. Downloading now!

Nawww, you're making me blush! The idea for this mix occurred to me while I was making icons (soon to be posted XD) after our chat on your entry and would not let go of my brain until I finished it. THE ADVENTURES OF JULIET AND SAWYER IN THE '70S CONTINUE IN THE FORM OF SONG!

I'm campaigning for LOST to really subvert expectations and have a series of fluffy 70s flashbacks.

I want to see Juliet make a daisy chain out of all the flowers that Sawyer gives her and put them in her hair!
YES. This will be the first one! Maybe followed by them working on the VW van together (but Juliet's totally the one with skills doing all the tough stuff). And her flatironing his hair for work. Maybe catching a rogue polar bear that was about to eat a baby and then watching some island bootleg of Star Wars. I'd be ALL OVER THAT.

Thanks for downloading, bb! It makes me happy to know my mix is actually getting listened to. <3
