The Mars Minute, Playlist Edition: Primadonna Girl

Welcome to a new feature of the Mars Minute (and back to the Mars Minute in general!)!! From time to time when we encounter an episode that is the perfect vehicle for a specific character, we’ll create a playlist dedicated to that character. 

Never forget the wonderful tragic girl Lilly Kane. Lilly Kane who likely haunts Logan to tell him (beg him!!) to stop wearing orange.

LILLY: Check you out, Veronica Mars. You’re like a rocker chick now. You and I? We’d have a lot of fun together…yeah…if, um, you know, if I wasn’t dead and stuff.

VERONICA: Why are you here?

LILLY: Don’t you watch any horror movies? My soul is doomed to walk the earth until justice has been served.


LILLY: Yeah, that, and, as kind of a side project, I dispense fashion advice.

In honor of Lilly Kane and her snappy comeback post-mortem fashion advice giving glory we’re dedicating episode 1x06, “Return of the Kane" to Lilly Kane and creating a playlist in her honor.

We’re very pleased to introduce "Run, Whirlwind, Run,” a fanmix made with love by yours truly.

[listen here]

It’s a wide array of fun upbeat dance numbers and others that hint a little more at the tragic girl beyond all the glam. Click the link above and help us remember the death and life of the fabulous Lilly Kane. 

Feel free to reblog or comment with other songs remind you of Lilly Kane and we’ll do a follow-up post that lists them all.

THE OUTSIDER- a mix for veronica mars 

 "Being a detective entails more than fulfilling a social function or performing a social role. Being a detective is the realization of an identity.“ 

-Raymond Chandler 

"This is where I belong. In the fight. It’s who I am. I’ve rolled around in the mud so long, wash me off and I don’t recognize myself. So how about I accept the mud and the tendency I have to find myself rolling in it. My name is Veronica and I’m an addict. Hello, Veronica."
