Boardwalk Empire Fanmix: Richard Harrow, "Half Jack"  
So! Here is my new obsession. I've started with a Richard mix, but I don't think this will be the last (Charlie Luciano, HERE'S LOOKIN' AT YOU). I feel like it would be too easy to make a Richard mix all dark and mopey and melancholic, so I've put some kind of lighter fare to mix it up a bit. Also, there's some Jimmy in here, as a kind of tentative spring into a Darmody fanmix. :D Anyhoodle, off to the songs!

1. "Justify my Thug" by DJ Danger Mouse ("Who the hell are you?!" "A soldier.")

I never asked for nothin I don't demand of myself
Honesty, loyalty, friends and then wealth
Death before dishonor and I tell you what else

2. "I Get Low" by Timber Timbre

If I could I would turn back into dust
You would look so good to me, I can almost taste it
One moment, I'm a king
the next minute, nothing
I just wanted to feel alright
But it's not that simple

3. "Song to Woody" by Bob Dylan

I'm out here a thousand miles from my home
Walking a road other men have gone down
I'm seeing a new world of people and things
Hear paupers and peasants and princes and kings.

4. "Citta Violenta" by Ennio Morricone


5. "Sinnerman" by Nina Simone

So I run to the Lord, please hide me, Lord
Don't you see me prayin'? Don't you see me down here prayin'?
But the Lord said, "Go to the devil"
the Lord said, "Go to the devil"

6. "Woods" by Bon Iver (Richard's little forest jaunt)

I'm up in the woods. I'm down on my mind
I'm building a sill to slow down the time

7. "Cup of Loneliness" by George Jones (Richard and the hobos)

Did you ever try to preach, then hold fast and pray
And even when you did it, there did not seem a way
And you lost all courage then lost all your vim?
Did you ever drink the cup of loneliness with him?

8. "The Lonely Shepherd" by Gheorghe Zamfir ("I lost whatever it was I thought love was.")


9. "Mother Nature's Son" by The Beatles (Richard's old life, with his twin, in Wisconsin)

Sit beside a mountain stream- see her waters rise
listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies

10. "Death is the Road to Awe" by Clint Mansell ("Would you fight for me?" "Yeah. Down to the last bullet.")


11. "Romeo's Distress" by Christian Death (Richard's first hit; Jimmy)

What's that moving in the basement?
What's that moving in the attic?
Who's that walking in the shadow?
Who's that walking in the streets?
A kiss on my hand, left a dark hand for a kiss

12. "Wicked Little Town" by Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Jimmy*)

You're running up and down that hill
You turn it on and off at will
There's nothing here to thrill or bring you down
And if you've got no other choice
You know you can follow my voice
Through the dark turns and noise
Of this wicked little town

13. "Death" by White Lies

I can feel my heart beating as I speed from
the sense of time catching up with me.
The sky set out like a pathway,
but who decides which road we take?
As people drift into a dream world,
I close my eyes as my hands shake

Bonus: "Half Jack" by The Dresden Dolls ("Sometimes I forget what I look like. Then I pass a mirror and I remember. I stare sometimes, at my face, and I can't recall who I was before.")

and when i let him in i feel the stitches getting sicker
i try to wash him out but like they say, "the blood is thicker..."
i see my mother in my face
but only when i travel
i run as fast as i can run
but jack comes tumbling after

*HEY FUN FACT did you know the guy who played Jimmy (Michael Pitt) played Tommy Gnosis in the film version of Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Whodathunkit?
