nightwish islander

Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Do not go gentle into that good night. A mix inspired by Clariel, the lost Abhorsen, the Old Kindgom and longing for freedom.

(Slightly unsettling fantasy soundtrack music befitting magic, focused on string instruments and with mostly female vocals.)

Personality Playlist Tag

so my bitch-ass best friend, @jotarohasadirtysecret tagged me to do this so um yeah

basically, you make a playlist with 10 songs and it’s supposed to describe your personality and lemme tell ya, you’re about to see some bOPS

1. King Of Swords (Reversed) - [The Dear Hunter]
Now I can’t stop ‘til everyone
Who ever done me wrong
Knows I’m not willing to take it

2. New World Widows - [Diablo Swing Orchestra]
In a world that sleeps
Built to make us weak
Silence calling; how numb we all are

3. Stuck - [Leprous]
I am stuck on mountains, mountains of doubt
I am stuck on mountains, mountains of apathy

4. The Islander - [Nightwish]
Sea without a shore for the banished one unheard
He lightens the beacon, light at the end of world
Showing the way, lighting hope in their hearts
The ones on their travels homeward from afar

5. Wolf In Sheep’s Clothing - [Set It Off]
Bah, bah, black sheep, have you any soul?
“No sir, by the way, what the hell are morals?”

6. Ribbon In The Sky - [B.A.P]
The controlled mass media is fiction
Cover your eyes
Corruption is everywhere
Shutting our mouths

7. Let’s Go Crazy - [Prince]
You better live now
Before the grim reaper come knocking on your door
Tell me, are we gonna let the elevator bring us down?
Oh no, let’s go!

8. Seaside Rendezvous - [Queen]
Underneath the moonlight
Together we’ll sail across the sea, reminiscing every night
(Shine on, silvery moonlight)

9. Save Yourself, I’ll Hold Them Back - [My Chemical Romance]
We could leave this world, leave it all behind
We could steal this car if your folks don’t mind
We could live forever if you’ve got the time

10. Airplanes - [5 Seconds Of Summer]
I’m not gonna say that I’m sorry
Gonna see the end of this story
I won’t fade into darkness 

i shall tag @zeloswaffles and @onlystraightforjongup and @shut-the-jongup in this! hallelujah! have fun
