The Bible; Mary & Mary Magdalene

Help, I've fallen into the Jesus Christ Superstar/Bible fandom and can't get out. I just have a lot of feelings for these characters. Not to mention the fact that making this gave me ideas for another Jesus/Judas/Mary mix. Seriously, it's a problem. This is intended as a sequel to the previous bible mix I made, but I suppose it can work on it's own. Young!Mary is still Chilina Kennedy, older!Mary is Lindsay Wagner. for [livejournal.com profile] waywardmixes round 11: mythology.

This mix is about the Marys. Mary, Jesus' mother and Mary Magdalene his friend, lover and fellow member of vague polyamorous relationship. The inspiration came from listening to my school's choir sing 'Mary Speaks' a wonderfully set poem about Mary Sr's experience and feelings at the crucifixion. In my head, Mary Magdalene meets the older Mary at the crucifixion where they are both stricken by grief. Mary has lost her son, and Mary Magdalene has lost the two people she loved most in the world. They become each other's healing process. Mary gets a daughter, another child and Mary Magdalene gets a mother, a friend. I like to believe that Mary wouldn't really care about Mary Magdalene's job choices, I feel like being loved by and important to her son is enough for Mary not to judge her (also I wanted to unite the original virgin-whore dichotomy because fuck that shit). They become a surrogate family, and where society might not deem them worthy or important, they are to each other.
This mix is the sequel to Stoic Minds & Bleeding Hearts.


[Prologue] Mary Magdalene
Empty Chairs at Empty Tables
oh my friends, my friends forgive me / that I live and you are gone.
there's a grief that can't be spoken. / there's a pain goes on and on.
oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me / what your sacrifice was for
empty chairs at empty tables /where my friends will sing no more.
[Prologue] Mary
Mary Speaks
o you who bear the pain of the whole earth, I bore you.
whose arms encircled the world with your grace, I once held you.
and I, who with all others, you died for, now I hold you.
may I be faithful to this final test, in this last hour I hold my child, my son;

GET HOME ❧ BASTILLE
we are the last people standing / at the end of the night
we are the greatest pretenders / in the cold morning light


CRAWLING (CARRY ME THROUGH) ❧ SUPERCHICK
how long will this take? / how much can I go through?
my heart, my soul aches / I don't know what to do
I bend, but don't break / somehow I'll get through / 'cause I have you


ROLL AWAY YOUR STONE ❧ LAURA MARLING
roll away your stone, I'll roll away mine / together we can see what we will find
don't leave me alone at this time / for I am afraid of what I will discover inside


WALLS ❧ WILL DRIVING WEST
treasure me just like a child / let me see the light in you
give your love a little while / let me be the light in you
drop your weapons on the ground / let your anger slip away


WE MAPPED THE WORLD ❧ JOY WILLIAMS
hope, breathe, touch, see, reach / so hope, need, feel, believe
did I find you? or did you find me? / just an ordinary day that made history


LOVE COMES BACK AROUND ❧ GRAHAM COLTON
some say what's lost is never found
but I know your love comes back around


I'M NOT YOUR HERO  ❧ TEGAN & SARA
I'm not their hero / but that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line / doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero / but that doesn't mean we're not one and the same


YOU WILL BECOME ❧ GLEN HANSARD
we talked about everything 'til we laughed about it
your honesty is nothing compared to what
you will become

MARY GO ROUND  ❧ SERENA RYDER
sun down Mary go round / too young  to leave this town
someone's playing your song / feel's good singing along
(so sing along) what could go wrong

Wow, what a great idea for a mix. Your last JCS mix actually got me to listen to a cast recording and I really want to see it on stage now. This mix is just as gorgeous as the last one and I love that you used Empty Chairs at Empty Tables for Mary Magdalene.
