Soundtrack - Stargate SG-1 - Daniel Jackson - walking on clouds, walking on stars (part one of two)  
Okay! I know I talked about doing a John Sheppard mix a while back, but Daniel won out for right now!

So, this mix has been in the making for quite a while - about a month, but I've been wanting to do it for a lot longer. It's the first of two parts, with the first part covering the original film plus the first five seasons & the second part covering seasons six through ten & possibly Continuum & The Ark of Truth, depending on when I release the second part.

Admittedly, this wasn't the easiest mix to make - with ten years of canon to work through, I almost didn't do it at all! But then I decided to divide each part into half a decade & try & score the most important aspects of Daniel's life & career at the SGC.

The first part of my mix has a more dreamlike, whimsical, emotional feel to it compared to the second part - I always saw Daniel in both the film & in the first five seasons as a dreamy idealist - someone who thinks more with his heart, rather than his head. It's part of why I love him as much as I do, really, so I had the first part of my mix reflect that. Also, this mix isn't particularly shippy - I'm saving that for future mixes. ::laughs::

I'd also like to thank colonel_taisa for all of her help with lyric meta & for not screaming 'I DON'T CARE ELIZABETH, GO AWAY!' at me when I'd take up whole chats with meta-ing, as well as my darling lost_little_nat, for being supportive & encouraging, even though it's been a while since she's watched any SG-1! You girls are freaking TREASURES! ::hugs both of you::

& of course, I want to extend a big honkin' thanks to each & every Daniel fangirl who downloads this - it IS all for you guys anyway!

Okay, no more babbling, let's get to the mix, shall we? But I would like to make one more note before we begin!

THERE IS NO ZIP. THERE WILL NOT BE A ZIP. I CAN'T UPLOAD ZIPS, THEY KILL MY COMPUTER. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO MAKE ONE. I WILL BE VERY ANNOYED IF PEOPLE REPEATEDLY ASK ME FOR ONE AFTER I'VE EXPLICITLY STATED THAT I CAN'T UPLOAD ONE. THANK YOU & ENJOY THE MUSIC!

WE NOW HAVE A ZIP! Courtesy of canadian_ammerz, we now have a full zip! walking on clouds, walking on stars, 127 MB





walking on clouds, walking on stars - a Daniel Jackson soundtrack - part one of two: they don't know you've already lived on the other side of the galaxy.

Liz Phair - Lazy Dreamer

you fall hard, you fall deep
even when you're awake, you look half-asleep

. . . .

lazy dreamer, you never want to rise
. . . makes no difference to you, the sun shining in your eyes

. . . .

nudge him awake, and he blinks his eyes, doesn't recognise anyone at all


Young, fresh-faced Daniel Jackson as we first met him - a dreamer setting out to prove his theories to the academic community.

Emilie Autumn - Heard It All

. . . It's been pulled away
by too many hands
Touching where I stand
And I can't fall because you'll try and catch me
Never let me go, you don't think I know
I've heard it all before so you'll never scratch my skin.

I heard a voice say 'It's all my invention'
'A fictional statement'
All I can tell you
My only pretension
Wasn't thinking the same

. . . .

You might be special
But it's too late to change now
'Cause it isn't the first time
I've heard it all

If it's my mistake,
then the blame I'll weigh
You're not the first and you won't be last


Laughed out of academia with his career & credibility in ruins, not to mention being labeled as crazy, foolish, insane, Daniel fought to have his voice heard. Then he met Catherine Langford & walked into the Stargate program.

Anna Nalick - Citadel

I'm sitting on a citadel
Contemplating life, making a point to waste my time
I'm walking on clouds of white

What if I fall, what if I don't, what if I never make it home?
What if I bleed, what if I break and I find that I can't take
Sitting alone
A citadel
Holding my own head.


. . . .

I'm walking on clouds, walking on stars.

. . . .

Walking on the surface is keeping me from jumping
Walking off this fortress with imaginary forces
Longing for a life down below.

Stranded on Abydos, being expected to pull a miracle out of his hat. What if he can't do it? What if they just.can't.get.home? Then what?

Pat Benatar - Invincible

What are we waiting for?
Won't anybody help us?

We can't afford to be innocent
Stand up and face the enemy
It's a do-or-die situation
We will be invincible!

What are we running for?
We've got he right to be angry?
What are we running for
When there's nowhere we can run to anymore?

And with the power of conviction, there IS no sacrifice
We will be invincible!


Daniel & Jack on Abydos, gathering a rebellion against Ra.

PJ Harvey - No Girl So Sweet

I'd like to take you inside my head
I'd like to take you inside of me
You came from heaven is all he said
You came from heaven and I love you.

Deep in the sky a storm he'd seen
There ain't nothing, no girl so sweet
Took her from heaven and gave her to me.


Daniel & Sha're when they first met on Abydos.

Tori Amos - Black-Dove (January)

You don't need a spaceship
They don't know you've already lived on the other side of the galaxy.


Daniel, living happily on Abydos with Sha're & his new family, until Jack & his new team come through the gate & the Gou'ald attack. Then it all falls apart.

Spider & I - Travelling Lost

(note: these lyrics are approximated, because I could NOT find the actual ones. If you have them, let me know!)

. . . Come across a world outside
With half-domed eyes.

. . . .

You're travelling lost
You're holding ghosts, you're holding ghosts.
. . . Nothing spurred your dreams.

(on the run for the things I knew)


No matter how many amazing things he finds, his deepest wish is to find Sha're & bring her back to Abydos.

Rasputina - Bad Moon Rising

I see a bad moon rising
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightening.
I see a bad time today.

So don't come around tonight
It's bound to take your life
There's a bad moon on the rise.

. . . I fear the end is coming soon.

. . .

Hope you have got your things together
Hope you are quite prepared to die
Looks like we're in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye


Daniel's trip through the quantum mirror & the events of The Serpent's Lair.

K's Choice - Not An Addict

It's not a habit, it's cool
I feel alive
If you don't have it, you're on the other side

The deeper you stick it in your veins the deeper the thoughts
There's no more pain
I'm in heaven, I'm a god
I'm everywhere
I feel so hot.

I'm not an addict.
Maybe that's the lie.

Sober now, I'm cold, alone,
I'm just a person on my own

. . . .

Free me, save me
Look at me, I'm falling


Daniel during Need. Do I have to speak any further? (& also, there is an AWESOME vid done to this song, which you can download here, & I highly recommend you do - it is a fantastic Daniel vid!)

The Rolling Stones - Laugh, I Nearly Died

I've been travelling
But I don't know where
I've been missing you
But you just don't care.

I've been to Africa, looking for my soul
. . . I've been in Arabia, seen a million stars.

So I'll say my goodbyes
Laugh, laugh, I nearly died.

I've been to India but it froze my bones
I'm living for the city
But I'm all alone
. . . I've been wandering, but I just don't care.

. . . .

Been travelling far and wide
Wonder who's gonna be my guide?
Livin' in a fantasy, but it;'s way too far
But this kind of lonliness is way too hard
I've been wandering, feeling all alone
I lost my direction, and I lost my whole world.


Daniel searched for years to find Sha're, in hopes he could free her & bring her back to Abydos. But in the end, he lost her for good.

Tori Amos - Marianne

And I knew you
Pigtailed and all
Girls when they fall

. . . .

Just having thoughts of Marianne
Quickest girl in the frying pan
I'm just having
Thoughts of
Marianne.


Daniel grieving for Sha're, & at the same time, questioning the path he's chosen for himself now that she's dead.

(note: this song was picked more for its melancholic sound, rather than the lyrics, but I tried to find applicable ones nonetheless.)

Portishead - Mourning Air

Did I see a moment with you
In a half-lit world?
I'm frightened to believe

. . . .

I'm reaching out in this mourning air.


Daniel & Ke'ra & the mutual attraction they had to each other. The first step to moving on after Sha're's death.

Liz Phair - Uncle Alvarez

. . . . .

Imaginary accomplishments
Hey hey hey you visionary guy
You might even shake the hands of presidents

. . . . .

He's not really part Cherokee Indian
He didn't fight in the Civil War
He's just Eugene Issac Alvarez
We feel sorry for the wall.

. . . .

Don't think of Uncle Alvarez and the price he had to pay


Daniel & his quite crazy grandfather Nicholas Ballard. Surprisingly more alike than Daniel thought before.

Garbage - The World is Not Enough

I know how to hurt
I know how to heal
I know what to show and what to conceal.

I know when to talk and I know when to touch
No one ever died from wanting too much.

The world is not enough
Oh but it's such a perfect place to start, my love.

. . . . .

There's not point in living if you can't feel the life.

If we can't have it all, then nobody will.


Daniel's visions in Absolute Power.

Death Cab For Cutie - Expo '86

Sometimes it seems that I don't have the skills to recollect
The twists and turns of plot that turned us from lovers to friends
I'm thinking I should take that volume back off the shelf and crack its weary spine to help remind myself

I am waiting for another repeat
Another diet fed by crippling defeat


Daniel seeing Sarah for the first time in the years since he joined the SGC. Some memories aren't always the best.

Ladytron - Destroy Everything You Touch

Destroy everything you touch today
Destroy me this way

Shakes your hand
Takes your gun
Walks you out
Of the sun

What you touch
You don't feel
What you steal.


The next time he sees Sarah, she's become Osiris. Once again, Daniel has lost someone close to him to the Goa'uld, & once again, he could not stop it.

Radiohead - Pyramid Song

All the figures I used to see
All my lovers were there with me
All my past and future
We all went to heaven in a little rowboat
There was nothing to fear, nothing to doubt.


Dying from radiation poisoning, Daniel explores the possibility of ascension and looks back on what he gave to the world when he was alive.

Air - New Star in the Sky

My baby blue
is a new star in the sky.


Daniel, at the exact moment he ascends.

(note: this song is mostly instrumental, but I thought it captured Daniel's moment of ascension perfectly.)
