1. Kelly Osbourne - Shut Up
Shut up!
Don't want to hear your voice.
Shut up!
I'm sick of all the noise.
There's nothing you can say
That means a damn thing to me.
Shut up!

2. Josie and the Pussycats – Pretend to be Nice
But can't you just pretend to be nice,
Can you at least pretend to be nice,
If you could just pretend to be nice,
Then everything in my life would be alright

3. Lorde – Bravado
I'm faking glory, lick my lips, toss my hair
And turn the smile on and the story's brand new
But I can take it from here
I'll find my own bravado

4. Alunageorge – Attracting Flies
Little grey fairy tales
And little white lies
Everything you exhale is attracting flies
And you can go off the rails
And you can cry your eyes out
But everything you exhale is attracting flies

5. Robyn – Time Machine
Hey, what did I do?
Can't believe the fit I just threw
Stupid
Wanted the reaction
I remember the words
How I said them, so they would hurt
But then, I regret my actions

6. Annie – Don’t Stop
Oh, when your lights are low
No need to be afraid of the unknown
I'll be the flame, you'll be the fuel.

7. Tove Lo – Talking Body
Now if we're talking body
You got a perfect one
So put it on me
Swear it won't take you long

8. Lily Allen – Everything is Wonderful
Do you think, everything, everyone, is going mental,
It seems to me that it's spiraling outta control and it's inevitable,
Now don't you think,
This time is yours, this time is mine,
It's temperamental,
It seems to me, we're on all fours,
Crawling on our knees,
Someone help us please
Oh Jesus Christ almighty
Do I feel alright? No not slightly

9. Kylie Minogue - Can't Get You Out of My Head
I just can't get you out of my head
Boy your loving is all I think about
I just can't get you out of my head
Boy it's more than I dare to think about

10. The Sounds – Queen of Apology
Quick fix and heartbeats, gets me so easily
Now you got me on my knees
This will be the death to me
Tic tac, time goes by, hits me so suddenly
How you knock me off my feet
I'm the Queen of Apologies
Now I'm fighting this feeling
But it never stops, never stops
I'm still waiting

11. Katy b – I Like You
But there's something I can feel when I'm with you
I recognize it, it's something so brand new
I can't help it, hope that you're feeling it too
I like you a little bit (yeah)
I like you a little bit
(More than I should)
I like you a little bit (yeah)
I like you a little bit
(More than I should)

12. Astaire – L-l-love
Flirting with disaster
You're the one I'm after
Think I found my destiny
Luxury and danger
Rapture me my stranger
Hold me close, don't let me be

13. Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You
Maybe I was wrong for trying to pick a fight
I know that I've got issues
But you're pretty messed up too
Either way I found out
I'm nothing without you
'Cause we belong together now, yeah
Forever united here somehow, yeah
You got a piece of me
And honestly
My life would suck without you

14. Rihanna ft. Neyo - Hate That I Love You
You know exactly what to do
So that I can't stay mad at you
For too long, that's wrong
You know exactly how to touch
So that I don't want to fuss and fight no more
Said I despise that I adore you

15. Betty Who – Somebody Loves You
Who’s around when the days feel long
Who’s around when you can’t be strong
Who’s around when you’re losing your mind
Who cares that you get home safe
Who knows you can’t be replaced
Who thinks that you’re one of a kind

Fic excerpts that correspond to each song:
1. ”Please go away”, Nick groans. The second unit operator has her camera trained on them now, and he’d really like it if his bickering with Louis didn’t end up being broadcast to ten million people. ”I really, really don’t have the time or the energy to deal with your short, annoying arse right now, so can you just – fuck off back to your own bench now?”

2. Not because he craves Louis’ friendship – he’ll get by perfectly fine without it, thanks. It’s just that they have to spend virtually every waking minute of these weekends on set together, and things would admittedly be easier if they could just get along. Or if Louis could stop making it so glaringly obvious that Nick’s pretty far down his list of favourite people, at least. And the thing is, he would be easy enough to avoid outside of the tent if it weren’t for the fact that he, Harry and Zayn come as a sort of unfairly attractive package deal. Nick rather likes hanging out with two thirds of them.

3. It’s gone completely silent under the marquee, the sounds of the tower collapsing followed by Louis’ little yelp loud enough to attract everyone’s attention. For one brief moment, it looks as though his face is about to crumple, but in the next it’s gone, replaced by a self-deprecating smile.

4. ”You fucking did that on purpose”, he hisses into Louis’ ear. Nick has never felt more wronged in his life.
Louis spins around, a disbelieving look on his face. ”I already told you, it was an accident”,  he says, putting way too much emphasis on the last word.
”Yes, and I’m the bloody Queen of England”, he whispers, inching even closer.

5. "Louis’s dislike of him always felt irrational and unjustifiable, but now that Nick went ahead and acted like a bit of a twat, maybe he has a reason after all. Somehow, it makes everything worse.

6.
"”Don’t fucking stop”, Louis says, before dragging Nick in by the collar of his shirt and licking a stripe up his neck. He’s tingling all over. He’s still confused as hell, but this feels too fucking good to stop. He doesn’t ever want to stop.

7.
"Without warning, he grabs Louis’ shoulders and spins them both around, switching their positions so he’s the one pinning Louis to the wall. He feels almost heady, having Louis caged in like this, forced to crane his neck to meet Nick’s eyes, his breathing shaky and laboured. For the first time today, he feels in control.

8.
The following week might as well be labelled ”Three Times Nick Thought About Contacting Louis but Didn’t, and Everything Else Is Terrible Too.”

9.
"Even after physically leaving the competition, Louis can’t bloody seem to leave him alone. He could punch a wall in sheer frustration.

10.
In fact, his sanity would probably benefit from having Harry help him find the answers to some burning questions – has he said anything else about me? Did he tell you about the spectacular sex we had? Why can’t I stop thinking about him? Why can’t I stop thinking about him naked? Why is this happening to me? What have I done to deserve this?– but they’re all stuck in his throat.

11.
”I like you, you fucking knob! I told you I liked you and you acted like a twat and you’re being a right twat now!”

12. Kissing Louis in a beautiful, sunny field is different, better, than kissing Louis in a cramped trailer or dark hotel room – possibly because kissing Louis when he’s sure it’s something they both want is better than not knowing whether the person you’re kissing would try saving you from a burning building or start the fire themselves.

13. Louis pulls away, his palms flat against Nick’s chest. ”So”, he says, face inches away from Nick’s own, ”it worked, then?”
”What?”, Nick asks, unable to look away from Louis’ glistening mouth. It’s pathethic how much he wants to keep kissing him right now.
”My flirting method.”
”Well”, says Nick, cocking his head, ”you did just spend five minutes explaining to me that you were, in fact, flirting, so I wouldn’t be too sure.”
Louis pokes him in the chest. ”But you kissed me.”
Nick hums. ”Yes. Seems so.”
”So it didn’t…not-work, either.”
”Do you want to argue or kiss some more?”
Louis scrunches up his nose. ”Dunno. You’re kind of cute when you’re all flustered.”

14. ”You”, Nick sighs, absentmindedly thumbing the bare skin of Louis’ ankle, ”are an absolute terror.”
Louis preens and lifts his feet to wiggle his toes underneath Nick’s nose. ”You like it.”
”God help me”, Nick says, ”but I do.”

15. Nick supposes he can live with that.


I was so incedibly lucky this year to get to make a mix for [livejournal.com profile] driveinbingo's completely incredible fic Butter with You. I mean, first of all the title is an excellent pun! And second of all, it combines so many things I love - Louis Tomlinson, Nick Grimshaw and the Great British Bake Off. Not to mention all the other characters and how perfectly she writes every single one of them. The only sad part is that this is not an actual series of GBBO that I can watch for real! But luckily we have this completely delightful fic with amazing dialogue and a lot of feelings and many actual laugh out loud moments. And absolutely every single person should read it and then tell her how wonderful it is! <3

This mix is in a soundtrack style, so corresponding fic excerpts are under the cut, along with the tracklisting.
