Fan Soundtrack: Masterly [Starman], Life on Mars / Doctor

Companion FST to my Life on Mars / Doctor Who longfic crossover Starman!

I created the core of this playlist years ago, and since then it's guided a lot of my structure/theming, seeing as I primarily plan scenes out in my head with audio/visuals rather than descriptions (screenwriting major derp derp). You can basically consider this playlist a chronological "movie soundtrack" to the fic, except for the various Part titles, which are instead basically outlines for their sections, and "The Real Me," which is basically... an outline for the whole fic dkjfhaksd

02. Black Sabbath - Iron Man
03. Credence Clearwater Revival - Run Through the Jungle

06. Pink Floyd - Time
07. Murray Gold - Impossible Choice
08. The Black Keys - Little Black Submarines
09. The Who - The Seeker

Extra Notes: This was originally just for personal use yes even the cover shut up, but since I received a couple of requests for hints on what might be coming up in the fic, I figured sharing this might be a shockingly direct way to do that!

I've listed release dates/eras for the songs just in case they might offer clues where/when things will be taking place in the fic. Because they do. What I am trying to say is that they do. And that a certain set of songs in there makes this super obvious. I'm so excited, guys. (Left the years off the instrumental pieces because those were chosen for their mood/titles/context rather than time periods.)

Random, but I also kinda want to dedicate this playlist and a lot of my love for Life in Mars in general to my dad, who sang The Who songs to me when he tucked me in as a kid and still geeks out when I ask him about artists in his Classic Rock LP collection. THANKS, DAD. U GAVE ME THE GIFT OF GOOD TASTE.
