No matter who you ship, no matter how long you've been a fan, these songs are going to be on every fanmix. They are the soundtrack to your long nights spent reading fanfiction and sobbing. They remind you of every slow burn, every 'pretend to be married' trope, all your feels you thought you'd recovered from. Well, you didn't.
1. Gregory & the Hawk- Boats & Birds
"If you'll be my star, I'll be your sky," brb because I am already crying.
Lifehouse- Hanging by a Moment
Let's all take a moment to remember the 90s, when fanfiction was distributed via web groups and email threads, and vidders were using this song for every single pairing.
3. Florence & The Machine- No Light, No Light
"You're my head, and you're my heart," EVERY OTP EVER.
4. The Avett Brothers- I and Love and You
The Stucky fandom really took hold of this one, but it's pretty much applicable to every New York au you've ever read.
5. REO Speedwagon- Can't fight this feeling
If you've been in fandom for a while... you remember. "It's time to steer this ship into the shore."
And here's a +1
Because every shipper knows, we are all prepared to go down with our ships.
