thirty six .  

heirs to the glimmering world
a mix for cobb/mal, from inception
the music.
01 » blinding - florence and the machine
seems that I have been held, in some dreaming state / a tourist in the waking world, never quite awake
02 » ice and the storm - my brightest diamond
open up your heart to me darling / you're resisting this bliss/ you've been dreaming only of it
03 » night terror - laura marling
I woke up and he was screaming / I'd left him dreaming
04 » a sea chanty of sorts - margot and the nuclear so & so's
and I can't breathe with the dust of retreat / i'm choking on the fumes of my wayward back
05 » second lover - noah and the whale
wherever you go and whatever you do / there's a man underground that will always love you
06 » ragged wood - fleet foxes
tell me anything you want, any old lie will do / call me back to you, back to you
07 » is there a ghost - band of horses
I could sleep / when I lived alone / is there a ghost in my house?
08 » winter bones - stars
winter lives in my bones / when you're awake you're alone / ... it's all I've ever known
09 » home - edward sharpe and the magnetic zeroes
let me go home / home is wherever I'm with you
10 » daisy - brand new
well, if we take all these things and we bury them fast / and we'll pray that they turn into seeds, to roots and then grass / it'd be all right, it's all right, it'd be easier that way
11 » the geese of beverley road - the national
we're the heirs to the glimmering world / oh, come, come be my waitress and serve me tonight / serve me the sky tonight
So ... like everyone else I watched Inception and I honestly love it. I walked out of the cinema feeling slightly underwhelmed, but it was only after much thinking, and reading up theories online, that I began to appreciate the movie so much more.

Cobb is my favourite character, because ultimately, the movie is about him. His relationship with Mal is so heartbreakingly beautiful that I had to create a mix for it. Leonardo di Caprio and Marion Cotillard are amazing in their roles and I hope this mix does their characters justice. Basically I've tried to achieve a progression of sorts with this mix: it starts off with songs about dreaming, then continues by focussing on Cobb's emotions after Mal's death, and finally ends with hope and an idea of home.

Enjoy the mix :)
