Title: tonight we are the sea
Fandom: Vikings
Subject: sea travels
Notes: Made for [ profile] waywardmixes's 14th challenge: journeys. I tried to do something different, instead of focusing on a particular character these are songs that remind of the show's atmosphere, with an emphasis on the sea traveling.

Vikings is the tale of Ragnar Lodbrok, a Viking who wants to explore what's east of Scandinavia and who leads the first raids into Britain. A central theme in the show is that the characters are not just warriors but also explorers who used new kinds of ships and new instruments to navigate the ocean.

01. Don't Fear The Reaper (Blue Öyster Cult)
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain

02. Dear Fellow Traveler (Sea Wolf)
And in our travels we found our roads
You held it like a mirror showing me the life I chose

03. I'm Not Gonna Find You (Michael Schulte)
All I can see is the moon
Wrapped up in silence

04. Martha's Harbour (Méav Ní Mhaolchatha)
I sit by the harbor, the sea calls to me
I hide in the water but I need to breathe

05. The Warpath (Conner Youngblood)
We strike the sky until the sun bows
And fly until our feathers burn out

06. The Sea And The Rhythm (Iron & Wine)
Your hands they move like waves over me
Beneath the moon, tonight, we're the sea

07. Never Let Me Go (Florence + the Machine)
In the arms of the ocean, so sweet and so cold
And all this devotion I never knew at all

08. Harbor (Vienna Teng)
You've got a journey to make
There's your horizon to chase

09. Dante's Prayer (Méav Ní Mhaolchatha)
Oh give these clay feet wings to fly
To touch the face of the stars

10. Arrival Of The Birds (The Cinematic Orchestra)

If I Had A Heart (Fever Ray)

After the night when I wake up
I'll see what tomorrow brings

any mix that can incorporate 'don't fear the reaper' is automatically a fantastic mix.

And anyway, you have given me feels. spooky, lets-go-out-to-sea feels :D
I'm not scared of boating. I just think it was a crazy idea in the Viking age. scurvy, storms, and no GPS. bah!

It's hard for me to properly comprehend this mix, since I haven't seen the series themselves... I read a little about it and it seemed a bit violent, which goes against the peaceful feeling I got from this mix -- but again, I haven't seen the series, I can't tell how appropriate the songs are. For what it's worth, I really liked the flow between songs, and it was cool to have an opportunity to hear some bands I'd never heard -- in particular Méav Ní Mhaolchatha -- and to appreciate those that I had already heard (I'll join the chorus of Don't Fear the Reaper is PERFECT). And I really liked your artwork, it's really pretty *-* Great job here, congratulations!
