So I finally finished my The Office canon couples mix! It only took...what, months? I got stuck on Roy/Pam, Darryl/Kelly, and Andy/Angela for awhile, but...I think I'm proud of the way it turned out. I want to give mega props to [ profile] 823freckles for all the help she offered during the making of this, too. <3

9 tracks | 2 Front Covers & 1 Back Cover | Spoilers for seasons 1-4

1. "When I Was on Top of You" - Trey Parker - Roy/Pam
she'll never know what she meant to me
whenever i was with her, i was always as gentle as i could be
and now i don't know why, but she's gone away
and i'll just have to stand on my own two legs

your eyes, your smile
made my little life worthwhile
there was nothing i couldn't do
when i was on top of you

Roy: After Pam dumped me, I um, I kinda stopped taking care of myself there, and uh, I hit bottom when uh, drunk driving arrest. I've been working out and um, you know, I'm not gonna take her for granted. I gotta win her back.

2. "Meant Something to Me" - Tyler Hilton - Michael/Jan
well a kiss might be just a kiss to you
but baby it meant something to me
and a night to remember might be
just a monday in september
baby it meant something to me

Michael: How's traffic? I miss you. What? Okay. Well, if it was a mistake, it was a wonderful mistake. No. [...] No, I did not intentionally get you drunk. Um hmm. No, no. [crawls under his desk] This is just a fight. This is just a first fight of many fights we're gonna have. Right. No. Wha-so-I don't understand, you wanna see other people. Only other people? Wh-why, okay, I think you're still a little bit drunk [...] I think you're, yes, why don't you just come back here, go to the hotel, have a few drinks and-no, no. I didn't slip you something!

3. "Mercy" - U2 - Dwight/Angela
your heart is aching, your heart is my home
it’s fascinating, i know i’ll never be alone
love heals when i lie
love puts the blue back in my eye
love will come again

Angela: Dwight, you have to listen to me! We are not seeing each other anymore! Can you accept that?
Dwight: Fine. [sighs] Then I just want to be friends.
Angela: Good.
Dwight: Plus a little extra. Also, I love you.
Angela: [walks away]

4. "Creeps Me Out" - Ima Robot - Ryan/Kelly
well, i don't do love letters
i'm no good with flowers
if i forget your birthday
will you still love me?
well, what are the odds of
one true love?
you say "high"
but i have my doubts
what are the odds of
me letting you down?
please don't cry; it's just your love
it creeps me out

Ryan: Kelly and I both agreed that we would just have fun. And I'm learning that fun for Kelly is getting married and having babies. Immediately. With me.

5. "Saints and Sailors" - Dashboard Confessional - Jim/Karen
so don't be a liar
don't say that
"everything's working"
when everything's broken

and you smile like a saint
but you curse like a sailor
and your eyes say the joke's on me

but i'm not laughing
you're not leaving
who do i think i am kidding?
when i'm the only one locked in this hell

Jim: Hey.
Karen: [sighs] Do you still have feelings for her?
Jim: [long pause and then he sighs and nods] Yes.
Karen: [nods and walks away]

6. "The Best Thing" - Relient K - Jim/Pam
it's been a year
filled with problems
but now you're here
almost as if to solve them
and i can't live in a world without you now
'cause when i looked into your eyes
and you dared to stare right back
you should've said, "nice to meet you, i'm your other half"

Jim: Do you remember what you said to me on my first day of work, just before you walked me over to my desk?
Pam: Yeah. "Enjoy this moment, because you're never going to go back to this time before you met your desk mate, Dwight."
Jim: And that's when I knew. You?
Pam: You came up to my desk and said, "This might sound weird, and there's no reason for me to know this, but that mixed berry yogurt you're about to eat has expired."
Jim: That was the moment that you knew you liked me?
Pam: Yep.
Jim: Wow. Can we make it a different moment?
Pam: Nope.

7. "Different" - Acceptance - Darryl/Kelly
i'm taking a chance, this could be different
this could be all i'm waiting for
taking a chance, this could be different
this could be all i'm waiting for

i wanted to see something that's different
something you said would change in me
wanted to be anything different
everything you would change in me

Darryl: Here you go.
Kelly: Thanks.
Darryl: So you still missing Ryan?
Kelly: Not so much anymore.
Darryl: Mmmmm.

8. "Sleep On Needles" - Sondra Lerche - Andy/Angela
i am but a fool to play unaware of things
if i'd treasured the truth
i would tell it to you
am i likely to succeed with the way things are?
judging by your smile
you are holding something back

Voice #1 on phone: Hey how'd it go?
Voice #2 on phone: Yeah, what'd she say?
Andy: I don't know yet, I have to call you back.
Voice #1 on phone: You have to give us something!
Andy: I'll call you back!
Angela: I have to go clean up after the party.

9. "Hey Julie" - Fountains of Wayne - All Couples
working all day for a mean little guy
with a bad toupee and a soup-stained tie
he's got me running 'round the office
like a gerbil on a wheel
he can tell me what to do
but he can't tell me what to feel

Angela: Office romances are nobody's business but the people involved.


P.S. [ profile] 823freckles made a mix that goes along with this for all the non-canon couples, so check that out. :)

I don't think I know any of these songs, but judging by the lyrics and the quotes you paired with them, this is brilliant! I'm going to download the zip!

I hadn't heard most of these songs until this mix either, actually. And that U2 song hasn't ever actually been released on CD! I swear Darryl/Kelly was the hardest. 'Cause they are left field. Yeah, they make me laugh and stuff, but what on earth is their connection? It's like the writers put all the single males in a hat, drew one out, and said, "Okay...Kelly's new boyfriend will be...DARRYL! Yay!" and then they all had cake to celebrate a successful hat drawing or something. *eye roll*

Oh well. I'm just glad I found songs for them all. Heh.

They are simply delaying the inevitable Kelly/Andy by doing that.

That song was actually what started off the whole mix, actually. I was going to make a Jim/Pam & Dwight/Angela fanvideo to it, but then I got lazy and never did, so I made a mix around it, lol. "Welcome All Interstate Managers" is one of my favorite albums ever. :)
