Nine Days of Olicity: The Feels Music

Every day between today and the Arrow Season 4 premiere, I am going to highlight 3 songs from the fandom collaborated Spotify Olicity: The Feels playlist. These are songs that I find myself queuing often and that give me the most Olicity feels. If you recommended these - THANK YOU! And keep the recs coming!

Feel free to join in with your faves and why.

The Words - The Madison Letter (Christina Perri cover)

This makes me think of Felicity's “I love you” declaration in 3x20. One reason I prefer this cover version is that it is sung from the male viewpoint - which makes it SO Oliver.

All of the lights land on you
The rest of the world fades from view
And all of the love I see
Please please say you feel it too
And all of the noise I hear inside
Restless and loud, unspoken and wild
And all that you need to say
To make it all go away
Is that you feel the same way too

Come to This - Natalie Taylor

I’ve posted this before - but I cannot say enough about the angst that this song provokes.

Will you hear me when I speak
Do you feel the pain with me
I tried to be so strong
I thought that hope would come
But you’re not here

The darkness keeps its grip

How’d it come to this

Whether it’s a literal separation - Oliver’s death.

Or Oliver coming back from Nanda Parbat still determined to keep Felicity at a safe distance and (damn it) work with Merlyn.

Or the most painful version - his choice to sacrifice himself and become the next Ras al Ghul.

Armor - Landon Austin

I think of both on this one. It works on so many levels. Both of them had to lay down their armor and they DID.

Maybe I’ll crash into you
Maybe we’ll open up these wounds
We’re only alive if we bruise
So I lay down this armor
I will surrender tonight
Before we both lose this fight
Take my defenses
All my defenses
I lay down this armor

I do what it takes to make this right
But we got to stop before the regret
After the war is won
There’s always the next one
I’ll do what it takes to make this right

Tagging the usual suspects below the cut:

Wedding Song

Some say it is the most important day in your life, and that you will remember it forever. First dances are a tradition on this day, and so we’ve created a playlist perfect for the occasion. Although there are the obvious classics (Aerosmith and Bryan Adams, for example), we’ve put a modern spin on things:

  1. Stolen - Dashboard Confessional. Completely overtaken by someone? This song is perfect.
  2. Never Stop (Wedding Version) - SafetySuit. Even the band recognized its potential for bringing a couple together.
  3. You Belong To Me - Jason Wade. Beautifully touching and honest.
  4. Like You’ll Never See Me Again - Alicia Keys. Her voice can make anyone fall in love.
  5. Iris  - The Goo Goo Dolls. One of the greatest love songs of the 2000’s.
  6. A Place Only You Can Go - Needtobreathe. It has an older feel to it, with an accordion that adds emotion.
  7. You and Me - Lifehouse. It’s a story about a relationship.
  8. All This Time - OneRepublic. Slower than others on this playlist, but it would be nice to slow dance to.
  9. Yellow - Coldplay. A classic; I’m waiting for people to accept this as the new I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing.
  10. Once In A Lifetime - Landon Austin. Perfectly describes weddings and the feeling that goes along with them.
