I hope you all know that the Smallville Big Bang is still accepting sign-ups! Author sign-ups are open until June 12th and artist sign-ups till the second half of August. For authors, it's only 10k, which is shorter than most other Big Bangs, and the final draft isn't even due till October! I'm sure they could use more authors and especially more artists. So, some of you talented folks on my flist should head on over and check it out.

Now that I've gotten that out of the way, it's Day 16 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme!

Day 16 – A song that reminds you of Smallville’s “Metropolis Years”

Well, there are many songs for that too, but I will go with "Awake and Alive" by Skillet. The second half of the series, especially s8-10, which were really the "Metropolis years", IMO, were about characters finally finding who they were and where they belonged. Decisions were made, some good and others not so good, but they all shaped who the characters became. Clark, for one, was finally independent, officially became the hero he was from Day 1 and gave his heart up to a woman he never really considered in the past. Chloe found a new home in a world with heroes, yet eventually rediscovered her original passion, realizing it didn't have to be either or. Lois too realized that she could love a hero and became settled at the Planet, becoming who she was meant to be all along. Which is why lyrics like "I'm awake I'm alive/Now I know what I believe inside/Now it's my time/I'll do what I want 'cause this is my life" really work for me. The whole song really fits though and if you haven't heard it, you should take a listen. :)

All right, it's Day 15 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme! I promise I will post something else one of these days, but I'm in the middle of studying for finals so I just pop in now and then, lol. After next Friday, I will definitely be here more often and I promise I'll be a better LJ friend too. :D

Anyway, onto the meme!

Day 15 – A song that reminds you of Smallville’s first four seasons (the high school years)

I don't know why, but the song that came to me was "Perfect" by Hedley. Lyrics like "Falling a thousand feet per second/you still take me by surprise/I just know we can't be over/I can see it in your eyes" describes the many relationships that had its ups and downs in the early years, especially Clark & Lana and Clark & Lex. Also, the chorus, "I know that I'm not perfect but I keep trying/cause that's what I said I would do from the start/I'm not alive if I'm lonely, so please don't leave/was it something I said or just my personality" really works for almost all the characters, especially the younger generation who are trying to find themselves.

It's Day 14 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme. Yup, I'm 2/3 done. Not bad. I've been actually able to keep up with this one, lol. :D

Day 14 – Favorite song that you heard on Smallville first

I've heard a lot of songs that I love first on Smallville but I will have to go with "Stop and Stare" by OneRepublic. It played in season 7, "Hero". Remember that awful episode when Pete Ross came back and it was basically a tribute to Strident gum and OneRepublic? Yeah, that's it. It sucked but it gave me some new music. Till then, I had only heard "Apologize" but I heard this song in that opening scene in the concert, with Jimmy taking pictures of Kara and I really liked it.

Day 13 – A song from a Smallville season finale

Well, I already used "Breathe Again" so I don't want to use that one again. Honestly, I had to look up what songs were played in finales cuz I really don't remember anymore. Sad, but true. I chose to go with a song from the s2 finale, "Exodus" and I chose Strange & Beautiful (I'll Put a Spell on You)" by Aqualung, which I used for my second Clark/Ollie mix, not remember it had been on the show, lol.

Day 12 – The song that reminds you of one of the Smallville “ships”

Just one? I have so many songs that remind me of my various ships (as proven by all the fanmixes I've made, lol). I guess I will go with a song I haven't used in a fanmix yet: "Smile" by Uncle Kracker, which makes me think of Clois. It's perfect for them. Especially lyrics like "Don't know how I lived without you/'Cuz everytime that I get around you/I see the best of me inside your eyes/You make me smile". One of the things I love most about Clois is the way Lois is able to get Clark to smile and this song is all about that! :D

Day 11 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme! :D

Day 11 – A song you’d put in place of another in a certain scene

This was really hard, because I love the songs they choose. Also, I can't remember 10 seasons worth of music either. If I had to pick, I would probably go with the 8.15 'Infamous' scene where Clark stands Lois up. I love "Dreamer" and parts of it do work, but it wouldn't have been my first choice for that scene. IDK what I'd pick in replacement- maybe "Street Map" by Athlete? Lines like "One day It's gonna happen/I don't know when I'll be on your street/But I know one day it's gonna happen/You're gonna be swept of your feet" because Clark was walking away from her then but he knew that it wasn't the right time ... yet. But someday it will and in "Icarus", he was able to cross the street to her. :D

Okay, it's Day 10 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme. Almost halfway there! :D

Day 10 – A song that describes Smallville’s Lex Luthor

I have many songs for Lex too but I will go with "The Prayer" by Mans Zelmerlow. I first heard this song in a Lex fanvid and it was just too perfect. The chorus screams Lex: "There's a boy I used to know/He was different from me/There was nothing that he thought he couldn't do, no no/There's this boy I used to see/Now I see him no more/If he's gone forever/I don't wanna know". I love that it can either describe Clark or Alexander, the young kid who worshipped Warrior Angel and wanted his father to love him. But really, the whole song is Lex and you should all take a listen.

Because you need to see how right it is, I'm posting the actual Lex fanvid by TheNeverworld, instead of a vid with lyrics like I usually do.

It's Day 9 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme. :)

Day 9 – A song from Lois Lane’s favorite band Whitesnake

Lois and her love for Whitesnake is adorable. I'm glad they brought it up in season 10. The song I'm going to go for is "Is This Love", just because it fits Clois so well, especially during season 8 when they're both still just getting used to their new feelings. Lyrics like "Is this love that I'm feeling/Is this the love, that I've been searching for/Is this love or am I dreaming/This must be love" really stand out but this whole song works for them.

All right, it's Day 8 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme! :D

Day 8 – A song you think best describes Oliver Queen on Smallville

Ollie! ♥ I have a few songs for him too (eventually I will make an Oliver fanmix, lol) but the main one is probably "All That I'm Living For" by Evanescence. Lyrics like "I can feel the night beginning/Separate me from the living/Understanding me/After all I've seen" really work for his double life as Green Arrow.

It's Day 7 of the 21 Day Smallville Meme! I'm 1/3 done! Yay! :D

Day 7 – A song you think describes Lana Lang on Smallville

I have a few songs that I associate with Lana but the main one is probably "Halo" by Bethany Joy Galeotti. The song lyrics really fit Lana, as it talks about a girl who is on a pedestal and wants to get off. Lyrics like "One thing is clear; I wear a halo, I wear a halo when you look at me; but standing from here, you wouldn't say so; you wouldn't say so if you were me" really describe her point of view. Lana really never wanted to be seen as some sort of angel and she always wanted the men in her life to see that, but they (especially Clark and later Lex) never got it.

Day 6 – A song that you think describes Lois Lane on Smallville

While I have many songs that I associate with Lois, this one is without a doubt "Keeps Getting Better" by Christina Aguilera. I can't listen to that song and not think of Lois. Everything about the lyrics fit her, especially the parts about being a super bitch and then being a heroine some days. Also the whole "I know what I am and I don't give a damn" is totally her too. Lois has many layers and the song totally nails it.

On to Day 5 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme!

Day 5 – Your favorite music moment on Smallville

There have been a lot of great moments, like the end of 'Bride' with the song 'Don't Take Your Love Away From Me' by Vast and Lois walking away from Clark/Doomsday taking Chloe to the Fortress. Also, I really liked the end of season 7, 'Bizarro', with Chloe burning her death certificate (though I don't remember what song was playing). However, I'm going to be biased and go with the most recent one: "Breathe Again" by Sara Bareilles during the SV finale. The wedding scene more specifically. That scene was just gorgeous. Lois just getting all emotional for a moment, because Clark wasn't there ... you can see her heart breaking. Then he showed up by her side and took her hand ... I swear, it killed me dead.

Since I can't find a vid of that scene that I can actually post here, HERE is a link for those who want to rewatch the (perfect) moment.

Day 4 – A song you think describes Chloe Sullivan on Smallville

There are a few songs that I think of when it comes to Chloe. For the longest time, it was 'Stay Beautiful' by The Last Goodnight, but these days it's "One Girl Revolution" by Superchick. The lyrics just really work for Chloe, at least to me.

Day 3 of my 21 Day Smallville Music Meme. :D

Day 3 – The song that you always wanted to be on Smallville

This was hard, because there have been so many songs on Smallville already, especially in the early seasons. I really can't remember all the ones that have made an appearance. So I'm just going to pick a song that I thought would fit the show and just forgive me it's already been there. In fact, feel free to let me know the episode, if you remember. I'm going with: "On Fire" by Switchfoot. I know other songs by them have been on the show but not this one. Lyrics like 'i'm on fire burning at these mysteries' and 'you're a mystery' would really work with Smallville.

Day 2 – The song that you think best describes Clark Kent on Smallville

Okay, I feel there are a lot of songs that fit Clark, but if I had to choose just one, I will have to go with 'Superman' by Five For Fighting. I know, it's cheesy and obvious, but I feel the lyrics really apply to Clark. Especially with the whole "find a way to lie about a home I'll never see" and the "can't stand to fly", since I've always felt it was a mental block on Clark's part that was stopping him from flying sooner. Just my two cents.

I found this one on Tumblr. It seemed cool so I snagged it. :D

Day 1 – Your favorite song that’s ever been on Smallville

There have been a lot of great songs on Smallville, but I am going to be obvious with this one and go with the theme song 'Save Me' By Remy Zero, just because I will never not be able to listen it to and not think of Smallville. :D
