Music choices in 10x01
I’m sure this has been written about loads but I can’t help but put my thoughts down as I love the Demon!Dean episodes, Dean shrugging off his inhibitions, essentially a variance on letting his facade down and one of these is sticking to classic rock, so here we have in 2 choices a fantastic range.
1. I’m too sexy - Yup. Dean IS too sexy. It has been a problem his whole life that people call him pretty, assume he’s gay etc etc etc. It’s a problem, it hurts. It’s a big part of the reason for his dude-bro macho persona.
2. Imaginary lovers - Well, I think this kind of speaks for itself, let’s just say, this is the epitome of Dean Sublimation Winchester’s POV on a certain *something*
Imaginary lovers never turn you down
When all the others turn you away they’re around
It’s my private pleasure, midnight fantasy
Someone to share my wildest dreams with me
Imaginary lover you’re mine anytime
Imaginary lovers, oh yeah
When ordinary lovers don’t feel what you feel
And real-life situations lose their thrill imagination’s unreal
Imaginary lover, imaginary lover
You’re mine anytime
Imaginary lovers never disagree
They always care, they’re always there when
You need satisfaction guaranteed
Imaginary lover, imaginary lover you’re mine all the time
My imaginary lover you’re mine anytime
Yeah, not that he’s pining for anyone at all and creating imaginary lovers because it’s less painful than addressing the real thing. Not that he later tells us that he is ready to go deeper perhaps, to feel things differently than before, new things… perhaps not an imaginary lover but a real one, perhaps no more substitutes…
Not that at the end of the season, to bookend this and Demon/MoC arc we get this:Imaginary lovers never turn you down
When all the others turn you away they’re around….
