Mix - Hellsing: In Love With Your Ghost

Title: In Love With Your Ghost
Warnings: Some spoilers; some cursing.
Disclaimer: It's Kōta Hirano's world; I'm just playing in it.

This started when I noticed just how many songs there are about relationships in which one partner doesn't physically exist. A mix about Seras and Pip, focusing on the time after Pip's death.

1) Barenaked Ladies - The Humor Of The Situation (Pip)
Their early relationship (after Pip gets over his initial "she's a monster!" freakout, that is). Teasing and dirty jokes on Pip's part. Seras doesn't appreciate them.

When you walked in, I said with a grin
That we were just talking about you
We all had to lie because you would cry
If you knew we were laughing at you...

Come on now, now
Come on now, now
Enjoy the humour of the situation

2) Tim McGraw - Real Good Man (Pip)
In spite of his roughness, Pip's a good guy: noble, in his own way.

Girl you've never known no one like me
Up there in your high society
They might tell you I'm no good
Girl they need to understand
Just who I am
I may be a real bad boy
But baby I'm a real good man

3) Empires - Spit the Dark (Pip)
When Zorin has Seras trapped in nightmarish memories, Pip saves her.

Love is best an addiction
Since time is so short, jump with confusion
Eyes closed for lives to open up
Free fall with me to open up

I will guide you in the night
Who do you want to forget?

4) Glass Tiger - Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone) (Pip)
"I finally stole a kiss . . ."

Don't forget me when I'm gone
My heart would break
I have loved you for so long
It's all I can take
You, you take my breath away
Love thinks it's here to stay
There's still so much for me to do
And I can't stop loving you

5) Cutting Crew - I Just Died In Your Arms (Pip)

Oh I, I just died in your arms tonight
It must've been some kind of kiss
I should've walked away

6) Godspell - By My Side (Seras)
Seras' loss.

Where are you going?
Where are you going?
Can you take me with you?
For my hand is cold
And needs warmth
Where are you going?

7) Placebo - Sleeping With Ghosts (Pip)
"Idiot. Didn't I tell you not to cry?"

It's OK
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate, dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate, dry your eyes
'Cause soulmates never die

8) Vertical Horizon - I'm Still Here (Seras)
Seras' last doubts, before drinking.

I found the pieces in my hand
They were always there
It just took some time to understand
You gave me words I just can't say
So if nothing else
I'll hold on while you drift away
'Cause everything you wanted me to hide
Is everything that makes me feel alive

If you were right and I was wrong
Why are you the one that's gone
And I'm still here?

9) Sugarcult - Memory (Pip)
Seras goes True Undead and kicks some over-tattooed ass. Pip cheers her on.

This may never start
Tearing out my heart
I'd be your memory
Lost your sense of fear
(I'd be your memory)
Feelings disappear
Can I be your memory?

10) Bon Jovi - Next 100 Years (Pip)
"It wouldn't be bad to die protecting a girl like that...." Seras is immortal, and now Pip isn't going anywhere.

I'm gonna hold you 'til your hurt is gone
Be the shoulder that you're leaning on
I'll be standing here
For the next 100 years
If it all should end tonight
I'll know it was worth the fight
And we'll be standing here
For the next 100 years

Songs for romances where one partner is insubstantial:

11) Collin Raye - I Can Still Feel You (Seras)

It's that feeling that someone
Is standing behind me
And I turn around and there's no one there
And it's the sensation
That someone just whispered
Yeah and I still hear your voice but you're not really here
Your memory is like a ghost
And my heart is its host

12) Kansas - Perfect Lover (Seras)

And sometimes I feel like she's standing right there
Like I could reach out and touch her
Only I know how real she is to me

There's a perfect lover running through my head

13) The Michael Stanley Band - Somewhere In The Night (Seras)

And through my life she cut like a knife
And I'm still walking around with the scars

Somewhere in the night
She's reaching out and touching me

14) Indigo Girls - Ghost (Seras)

And there's not enough room in this world for my pain
Signals cross and love gets lost, and time passed makes it plain
Of all my demon spirits, I need you the most
I'm in love with your ghost

15) Footloose - Let's Hear It For The Boy (Seras)
It's an unconventional relationship, to say the least . . . but, hey, she loves him, so it's all good in the end.

My baby, he don't talk sweet
He ain't got much to say
But he loves me, loves me, loves me
I know that he loves me anyway

And maybe he don't dress fine
But I dont really mind
'Cause every time he pulls me near
I just want to cheer

Let's hear it for the boy!
Let's hear it for my man!

Bonus Track: The Eskimo Song (Full Metal Jacket) (Pip)
Pip still sings this. Seras can't run away from it any more. But she's through with running.

I don't know, but I've been told
Eskimo ***** is pretty cold!
