Your Song

avengers x reader preference

your song with your avenger boo (if you have anyone else in mind that you want with this, i might do a part 2)

Bucky: Stubborn Love by The Lumineers- After about a month of living at the compound, he began to explore the new world that he’d been viciously thrown into. The first thing he did in this new and crazy world was find you, and he felt that was all he needed to do. You put him in his place when he thought that he wasn’t good enough to be in your arms, or around the family he grew to love. So “Stubborn Love” became your song, eventually the both of you had lyrics from it etched onto your skin. You reminded him to keep his head up despite his past crushing down on him daily, and that ‘it was better to feel pain than nothing at all’. When the two of you finally made it to a Lumineers concert, it was no surprise that there were some tears shed whilst they played your sacred song.

Steve: Like Real People Do by Hozier- It was common for him to come home with complaints of people treating him like a specimen in a lab; something to study rather than a friend to listen to during battle. On your first mission with the team Steve quickly realized that you saw through the whole super soldier thing, and you saw him as not only a human being, but a leader. Quickly after that the two of you hit it off, and listening to music together became a thing that you bonded over more than anything else. When he came across “Like Real People Do” by Hozier, he was almost sobbing at how much it reminded him of you. Considering you both had a tumultuous past, and he felt that you pulled him from the “ground”. The love he had for you was out of this world, and you wouldn’t want to be with any other Soldier in the universe.

Natasha: Say I Do by Jonny P- Every day she struggled with everyone having the same misconception that she was a hardass bitch, and that she didn’t have the ability to love anything or anyone. But little did anyone know, you were receiving her love day in and day out. Very few people (You, Steve, Bucky, Clint and maybe Sam) truly knew her lovable side, and how she talked about marrying you every single day. When asked about you, Nat would simply explain that it felt like the whole room lit up when you walked in. One day she texted you out of the blue with a link to a song by Jonny P attached, and when you opened it your heart nearly burst. Still, she managed to surprise you by proposing that night, and “Say I Do” was the first song that the two of you danced to at your wedding.

Sam: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell- When the two of you first got together, it was at a bar on karaoke night. You were singing Tammi’s part, and Sam sauntered onto the small, shoddy stage to help you sing the duet. Once you joined the team and started going on missions, it became obvious to everyone around you that Ain’t No Mountain High Enough explained your relationship fairly eloquently. Both of you would swim across the ocean if it mean saving one another. Even if it was something as simple as you wanting a beer while visiting another state, Sam would drop everything he was doing and fly one to you. Having a boo like Sam was like no other, and you enjoyed making the team sick to their stomachs with your PDA.

Peter: Taro by alt-J- Being that you’re both fairly young, and still exploring the whole entire world while on missions with the team, it’s hard to pinpoint a song that described exactly your relationship. However, both of you bonded over whatever new and obscure music was out, and what small concerts you could attend without being recognized. It all started when you were hanging out in his room, looking at all the small things he’d collected over the years while he fixed a new computer that he found. When you came across a poster for a band that you had never heard of, and Peter played some of their songs through a small speaker in the corner of the room as he carried on fixing the beat up computer. Soon enough the two of you went to an Alt-J concert, and you fell even deeper in love with Peter for getting you into their songs.

Bruce: Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley- You’d been friends with Bruce for what felt like your whole life, even before the whole entire Hulk thing changed his life. When you stayed and convinced him he was worth love despite everything that had happened to him, it was like a switch flicked on inside of him and he began to see you in a different light. The change wasn’t just in him, but you also felt a shift in the way you saw him. Falling in love wasn’t easy for Bruce with all the shit going on in his mind, but he was certain that he wanted to be in love with you. When the two of you finally officially got together, the first thing you did was share a dance to the Elvis classic. Being with him just felt right, and you couldn’t help falling more in love with his sweet soul.

Clint: I Just Called to Say I Love You by Stevie Wonder- Most of the time you guys were either in the same room, or he texted that he was going on a quick mission. But you knew when you saw his name come up on the caller I.D., it wasn’t good. He knew when missions were going to go bad, so he would dial your number and pray you’d answer. At first he did it when the two of you split up for about a month, and when you got the call from him just saying that he loved you with explosions in the background it scared you half to death. You couldn’t sleep until he was home safe in your arms. When the two of you got married, it only got worse. But, these calls only made the day of his return that much sweeter, and you kissed him until you felt like your lips could fall off.


On this day in music history: October 13, 1984 - “I Just Called To Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart and the adult contemporary chart for 3 weeks on the same date. Written and produced by Stevie Wonder, it is the eighth pop and sixteenth R&B chart topper for the Motown superstar. Included on the soundtrack to the Gene Wilder directed comedy “The Woman In Red”, Wonder composed the music for the song in 1977 but writes the lyrics during the recording sessions in mid 1984. Released as the first single from the soundtrack on August 1, 1984, it is an immediate across the board smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #58 on August 18, 1984, it climbs to the top of the chart eight weeks later. Wonder’s long time friend and sometime songwriting collaborator Lee Garrett (“Signed, Sealed Delivered, I’m Yours”, “It’s A Shame”, “Let’s Get Serious”) and Lloyd Chiate claim to have helped co-write the song and file a lawsuit. The suit is settled in Wonder’s favor, with the jury finding that the other two alleged writers did not provide adequate proof that they had co-written the pop and R&B smash. Stevie Wonder wins a Golden Globe and the Academy Award for “Best Original Song” for “I Just Called To Say I Love You” in 1985. When Wonder accepts his Oscar, he dedicates the award to then still imprisoned South African civil rights leader Nelson Mandela. With South Africa still under apartheid rule at the time, Stevie Wonder’s music is banned from radio airplay and television broadcast. The ban is lifted with the end of the segregationist system in 1994. “I Just Called To Say I Love You” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: August 11, 1984 - “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker, Jr. hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks, also topping the R&B singles chart for 2 weeks on August 25, 1984. Written and produced by Ray Parker, Jr., it is the biggest hit for the Detroit, MI born singer, songwriter and musician. In the Spring of 1984, musician Ray Parker, Jr. is approached by producer and director Ivan Reitman (“National Lampoon’s Animal House”, “Stripes”, “Meatballs”) to write a theme song for his film “Ghostbusters” starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Under an extremely tight deadline to make the film’s early June opening, Reitman gives Parker only a few days to write and record the song. The musician quickly gets to work, recording the track and playing all of the instruments himself at his Ameraycan Recording Studios in North Hollywood, CA. The film becomes the highest grossing film of 1984 at the box office, with the song also becoming an instant across the board smash upon its release. Entering the Hot 100 at #68 on June 16, 1984, it climbs to the top of the chart eight weeks later. The single wins Ray Parker, Jr. a Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance, as well as receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song in 1985. However, Parker loses the Oscar to his former boss Stevie Wonder, who wins for “I Just Called To Say I Love You”. Along with the huge success of “Ghostbusters”, there is controversy. Huey Lewis along with his manager Bob Brown file a copyright infringement lawsuit against Ray Parker, Jr. and Columbia Pictures, claiming that “Ghostbusters” is too close in structure to Huey Lewis And The News’ hit “I Want A New Drug”. It later comes to light that Reitman had been using “I Want A New Drug” as a temporary music track during the editing of the film. The matter is settled out of court, but Parker ends up countersuing Lewis when he makes mention of the lawsuit during an interview for the VH-1 series “Behind The Music”, violating the original settlements confidentiality agreement. In April of 2014, Sony/BMG’s Legacy reissue division issues a limited edition 10" glow in the dark reissue vinyl pressing of “Ghostbusters”, on Record Store Day", to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the film. A 12" white vinyl disc titled the “Stay Puft Edition” is released in October of 2014, with Parker’s original version on one side, and Run-DMC’s song (a different song than the original theme) recorded for “Ghostbusters II” in 1989. The 12" comes in a custom white “puffy” vinyl sleeve with still photos of Mr. Stay Puft from the original film, and is marshmallow scented. “Ghostbusters” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

On this day in music history: April 21, 1984 - “Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)” by Phil Collins hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 3 weeks. Written by Phil Collins, it is the first chart topping single for the British pop superstar. In November of 1983, the Genesis lead vocalist and drummer is at the start of the US leg of a world tour, when director Taylor Hackford sees them perform in Chicago. After meeting Collins, Hackford asks him if he will write a song for his film “Against All Odds” (starring Jeff Bridges, Rachel Ward, and James Woods). The director shows Collins a rough cut of the film, and though he likes what he sees, the drummer initially declines the offer. Further persuasion from Hackford gets Collins to change his mind and eventually agrees to record a song. Phil begin working, taking an unused song recorded during the sessions for his first solo album “Face Value” titled “How Can You Just Sit There?”, and refashioning it into “Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)”. Working with producer Arif Mardin (Chaka Khan, Carly Simon, Bee Gees), Collins records his vocal and drum parts on the song in New York and Los Angeles on days off from the Genesis tour. Released as a single in early February of 1984, it is an immediate smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #67 on February 25, 1984, it climbs to the top of the chart eight weeks later. “Against All Odds” wins Collins his first Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance in 1985, also earning him an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. The Academy creates something of a public relations nightmare, when Collins himself is not invited to perform his song on the Oscar telecast, instead asking singer and dancer Ann Reinking to perform it. Then Motion Picture Academy president Gregory Peck admits publicly that he doesn’t know who Phil Collins is (in spite of being one of the biggest pop stars in the world at that time), causing further embarrassment. Collins attends the ceremony, sitting in the audience. He ends up losing the award to Stevie Wonder for “I Just Called To Say I Love You”. “Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

With my style of blogging lately, I shoud probably make myself a twitter. save you all the annoyance of my one-sentence posts and make my urge of just posting lyrics from stevie wonder’s “i just called to say I love you” slightly more acceptable.

Yay or nay?
