Agent Olivia Dunham: Fringe Mix CD

Art by Natalie Nourigat

My passion for Fringe extends beyond just the always lovable Peter Bishop to the equally cool Olivia Dunham, who I decided needs to get a little music love as well.

I set up this playlist to be an echo of the one I created for Peter – not because I think of them as soulmates, but more like soul twins. They’ve both been duped on many levels and are haunted/messed up from past relationships and all the crazy shit they deal with in the Fringe division.

Again – the tracks follow the emotional life of Olivia and are in chronological order based on her growth throughout the first two seasons. I haven’t been able to watch ANY of the third season yet, so I cannot speak to what’s happening there.

I’d just like to think, in some alternate universe, somebody thought Olivia Dunham was worthy of a Mix CD. And it turned out like this:

1. The Funeral – Band of Horses (the opening track HAS to be the same band!)

2. Swan Dive – Ani DiFranco

3. The Sweets – Yeah Yeah Yeahs

4. 9 Crimes – Damien Rice

5. I Go To Sleep – Sia

6. Your Ghost – Greg Laswell

7. Lotus Flower – Radiohead

8. Keep the Streets Empty For Me – Fever Ray

9. All These Things That I’ve Done – The Killers

10. Monument – Mirah

11. Boy With a Coin – Iron & Wine

12. He Woke Me Up Again – Sufjan Stevens

13. Tightly – Neko Case

14. Lights – Interpol

15. Doubt – Wye Oak

16. What If This Storm Ends? (Lightning Strike Part One) – Snow Patrol

If you ask me nicely I might be persuaded to send you a copy in the mail or deliver it in person – feel free to email me at . I’m interested in hearing what playlist or tracks you would put on an Agent Olivia Dunham mix CD. You can post them in the comments here!
