Catalyst Confession: "Martyr" by Depeche Mode
A nice sexy upbeat song for the open of a whirlwind of a chapter. May the hectic mess begin.
Traitor: "Space Monkey" by Placebo
This song reminds me of a newly committed patient entering an asylum for some reason and I thought it would fit with Hisoka's current situation.
Honey-Flavored: "2 Hearts" by Kylie Minogue
A little sexy Minogue before Anna is taken over by the Mother. :)
Kitsune Megami: "Supervixen" by Garbage
Shirley Manson is so sexy. Which is probably why her voice is perfect for the Mother's takeover.

"Clowns" by Goldfrapp
Now, I haven't heard this whole album yet, but this and "A&E" have a folksy sound to it that's different from their previous albums.

This song just had to used! 'Nough said!
Chapter Forty-Four: Killing Time: "400 Lux" by Lorde
This song just clicked and I'm warming to Lorde myself. She has some good stuff, really. I don't like "Team" though; it's too whiny for my taste.
