Inception mix! "All About Eames"  
Medium: Film
Fandom: Inception
Subject: Eames
Title: All About Eames
Warnings: mild swearing.
Notes: Features artists such as David Bowie, Louis XIV, the Fratellis, Kid Cudi, and Tom Waits; mild crack and fanon ahoy.

First mix EVAH! This flick has totally taken over my mind, thanks to my new fictional boyfriend, the fabulous Eames. This mix has quite a few instrumentals and covers, and they mostly make up my personal headcanon for the lovely Mister Eames. Somehow, Arthur and Ariadne have snuck in a bit; any of these songs could be interpreted in any way. But enough talk, onto the mix!

1. Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey - "Song of India"


2. The Fratellis - "Flathead"

they don't come much more sick than you
I could go on if you want me to
It's just so wrong, so very nice
and I told you once and you killed me twice:
saw you one time at the back of the club
chewin' on glass and a ticket stub

3. Miike Snow - "Animal" (Mark Ronson Remix) *

I change shapes just to hide from this place
that I'm still, I'm still, an animal
nobody knows it but me, when I sleep
yeah, I'm still, I'm still an animal

4. David Bowie - "Diamond Dogs"

Come out of the garden, baby
You'll catch your death in the fog
young girl, they call them the diamond dogs

5. Example - "Take What I Want"

Dirtily, yes I take what I want, bruv, certainly
but it's hurtin' me
I still gotta bury my bone in a poor man's clone

6. Beck - "Diamond Dogs" (David Bowie cover)

with the silicone hump, and your ten-inch stump
dressed like a priest you was,
Tod Browning's freak you was

7. Black Lips - "Bad Kids" {Eames' theoretical childhood}

(in class) We are a minority
(got no) Respect for authority
(and won't) Play well with others
(and steal) From all your mothers

8. Artie Shaw and his Orchestra - "Frenesi" {this is TOTALLY an Arthur song, jsyk}


9. Louis XIV - "Hey Teacher"

You keep on telling me these pretty little lies
Well, I'm just a man and want you, instead of the drugs that get me high
You're all around me like a freight elevator
You put things in me and say "I'll see you later"

10. Elliott Smith - "Christian Brothers"

No bad dream fucker's gonna boss me around
Christian brothers gonna take him down

11. Dvorak - "Humoresque"


12. Foals - "Hummer"

A quiet heartbeat
your quiet heartbeats shine like millions
sleep like small stars fly back home

13. Kid Cudi feat. Kanye West and Common - "Make Her Say"

She can have whatever she likes
she can if she brings her friend
and we can have one hell of a night
through the day

14. The Fratellis - "Chelsea Dagger" {Eames' gender-bendery switcheroos :D}

Well you must be a girl with shoes like that
she said you know me well
I was good, she was hot, stealing everything she got
I was bold, she was over the worst of it
gave me gear, thank ya, dear
bring your sister over here
let her dance with me just for the hell of it

15. T-Rex - "Mambo Sun"

Beneath the be-bop moon,
I'm howling like a loon, for you
Beneath the mambo sun,
I've got to be the one, for you

16. Pixie Lott - "Use Somebody" (Kings of Leon acoustic cover)

Off in the night, while you live it up
I'm off to sleep
waging wars to shake the poets and the beat
I hope it's gonna make you notice

17. David Carbonara - "Song of India" (Mad Men version) {can you tell I love this song, derr}


18. Tom Waits - "Take It With Me"

All broken down by the side of the road
I was never more alive or alone
I've worn the faces off all the cards
I'm gonna take it with me when I go

19. U2 - "With Or Without You"

See the stone set in your eyes
see the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
on a bed of nails, she makes me wait
and I wait, without you
With or without you


Happy listening, and comment if you like!

*I'm not happy with the remix of this song that's on the zip; this version is the one I like best.

I downloaded this last night and have been listening to it all day today. I really like this mix, I enjoy the song choices and I can see how they could all fit Eames. Thanks for sharing!
