Fanmix: Al Jameela wa al Wahsh

Fanmix: Al Jameela wa al Wahsh (Beauty and the Beast)
For: Beauty by brainofck
Story Summary: During combat operations somewhere in Northern Kuwait or Southern Iraq, Jack O'Neill becomes the Air Force "liaison" to a local warlord known as The Beast. An AU loosely based on Beauty and the Beast.

Notes: Many thanks to zats_clear and starkravingsane for song suggestions. Apologies for the shitty Arabic-to-English translations for some of the tracks. Egyptian pop music ftw.

Youtube Playlist

1. Once Upon a Time: “Zayyel Hawa” (Like the Wind) ~ 7 Days in Egypt

2. The Rescue Attempt: “Incantation” ~ Quidam

3. Left Behind: “Life During Wartime” ~ Talking Heads
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
This ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain't got time for that now

4. Life in Abydos: “Do It Again” ~ Smash Mouth
You go back, Jack, do it again
Wheels turning round and round

5. Friends?: “Give a Little Bit” ~ Goo Goo Dolls
Give a little bit of your love to me
I'll give a little bit of my love to you
See the man with the lonely eyes
Take his hand, you'll be surprised

6. Sha’uri’s Theme: “Pie Jesu” ~ Sarah Brightman
Lord, have mercy,
Lord, have mercy,
You who take away the sins of the world;
Grant them peace,
Grant them peace.

7. Becoming the Beast: “Beauty and the Beast” ~ Stevie Nicks
Oh, who is the beauty, who the beast
Would you die of grieving when I leave
Two children too blind to see
I would fall in your shadow, I believe

8. Don’t Think Too Hard: “Bodies” ~ Soul Miner’s Daughter
Your skinny lips, your sweat and sex,
Your breath it covets me
You know I like my body best when it is on your body

9. Rose Oil: “Need to Destroy” ~ T.H.C.
Don't show me your weakness,
I might become,
Something you need.
Something you need
To destroy.

10. Going Home: “The Moon Is Down” ~ Explosions in the Sky

11. Charlie: “How to Save a Life” ~ The Fray
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

12. Return to Abydos: “Ya Bent El Aeih” (You Evil Girl) ~ Tamer Hosny
If I lived, swearing, all my life
I'll never be able to describe my love for you
I need a life and another two or three lives plus mine in order to describe
Oh, my life, how much I love you

13. In the Nick of Time: “Collide” ~ Howie Day
I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

14. A Solution: “Tangled and Wild” ~ Oh, Susanna
Run away with me, won't you?
It doesn't matter where we go.

15. Happily Ever After: “Nour el Ain” (Glow in My Eyes) ~ Amr Diab
My darling, you are the glow in my eyes
You live in my imagination
I adored you for years
No one else is in my mind

16. A Bonus Song: “Be Our Guest” ~ Beauty and the Beast Cast
And you're scared
But the banquet's all prepared
No one's gloomy or complaining
While the flatware's entertaining
