Fanmix: Follow You Home (An Obsession Mix)

For your listening pleasure, I present to you an obsession mix. As many of you who've read my fic know, obsession is one of my favorite themes. And when I realized how many "obsession" songs I actually had, a mix seemed like a natural.

As you'll notice, I like songs that seem all romantic and sweet on the surface. But, when you actually stop and listen to the lyrics, you start feeling disturbed. And, in some cases, creeped the hell out.

Here is the track list. (You can read the lyrics below.)

01. Possession – Sarah McLachlan
02. Vermillion 2 – Slipknot
03. Your House - Alanis Morissette
04. Shame – Stabbing Westward
05. Strange and Beautiful – Aqualung
06. #1 Crush – Garbage
07. Follow You Home – Nickelback
08. It’s No Good – Depeche Mode
09. Surrender – Evanescence
10. A Collection – Marillion

You can preview and download the songs HERE.


1. Possession – Sarah McLachlan
Into the sea of waking dreams,
I follow without pride.
‘Cause nothing stands between us here,
And I won’t be denied.

2. Vermillion 2 – Slipknot
A catch in my throat, choke,
Torn into pieces.
I won't. No!
I don't wanna be this...

3. Your House - Alanis Morissette
I walked down the hall,
Into your room,
Where I could smell you.
And I shouldn't be here without permission.
I shouldn't be here.

4. Shame – Stabbing Westward
I pray for someone to ache for me
The way I ache for you.
If you ignore that I'm alive,
I've nothing to cling to.

5. Strange and Beautiful – Aqualung
I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep and I'll put a spell on you.
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see,
And you'll realize that you love me.

6. #1 Crush – Garbage
I would die for you.
I would die for you.
I've been dying just to feel you by my side,
To know that you're mine.

7. Follow You Home – Nickelback
Well you can stick me in a hole,
And you can pray all day for rain.
You can shoot me in the leg,
Just to try to make me beg,
And you can leave me there for days.
And I'll stay alive
Just to follow you home.

8. It’s No Good – Depeche Mode

The gods decree
You'll be right here by my side.
Right next to me.
You can run but you cannot hide.

9. Surrender – Evanescence
Darling, there's no sense in running,
You know I will find you.
Everything is perfect now,
We can live forever.
You can't abandon me.
You belong to me.

10. A Collection – Marillion
If you can't speak, you can't lie.
If you can't run, you can't hide.
I know a place you can't die.
So no one lives inside my collection.

My brother and I both collect obsession- and stalker-themed songs too. I just love 'em.
Thank you! ♥

Firstly, ♥ the concept. Secondly, ♥ the song choices. I have most of these except maybe two, but I had to tell you how awesome the concept it. :D

Thanks. I enjoyed putting this together. But it's amazing how many obsession songs are out there. And I didn't realize how many I had until I started making a list. :D

Completely understands the obsession as a favorite theme ;)

It's a good theme, right? All with the intensity and angst, mixed with a little bit (or a whole lot) of danger. What's not to love? :)
