Venus Butterfly Playlist

  1. Chapter One: 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.

  2. Chapter Two: 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.

  3. Chapter Three: Honey-Flavored: "2 Hearts" by Kylie Minogue
        A little sexy Minogue before Anna is taken over by the Mother. :)

  4. Chapter Four: Kitsune Megami: "Supervixen" by Garbage
        Shirley Manson is so sexy. Which is probably why her voice is perfect for the Mother's takeover.

  5. Chapter Five: Less Than Ordinary Life: "I Miss You" by Blink 182
       What happened to this band? Are they still around?

  6. Chapter Six: Blue Japanese: "Blue American" by Placebo
        Brian shows the bitterness in Hisoka in therapy in this song.

  7. Chapter Seven: Fox is a Devil: "God's Gonna Cut You Down" by Johnny Cash
        I don't normally like Johnny Crash or country music, but I really like this song and had to use it.

  8. Chapter Eight: Lab Promise: "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.

  9. Chapter Nine: Newbie Shinigami: "Walking Zero" by Sneaker Pimps
        You can't go wrong with the Sneaker Pimps on any day.

  10. Chapter Ten: Fighting Myself: "My Sweet Prince" by Placebo
        It's a slow Placebo song, but it grew on me after a few listens.

  11. Chapter Eleven: The Root of Darkness: "Honey Honey" by Feist
        One of many rare treasures on Pandora.

  12. Chapter Twelve: Daisuke's Sin: "Damaged Goods" by Gang of Four
        Love this song and love how it fits with Daisuke's problem.

  13. Chapter Thirteen: Phone Message: "Commercial for Levi" by Placebo
        This short song portrays Tsuzuki reaching out to Hisoka and pushing him to get better again.

  14. Chapter Fourteen: Angelic Resting: "A&E" by Goldfrapp
        It took me a while to like this song because I wasn't used to this style from Goldfrapp, but now I like it.

  15. Chapter Fifteen: Kill Parade: "Shut Your Mouth" by Garbage
        Shirley gives us more of the dark sexiness for the Mother.

  16. Chapter Sixteen: Sour Cherry Game: "Sour Game" by the Kills
        This song fits the sexual tense struggle between the Mother and Tsuzuki down to a tee.

  17. Chapter Seventeen: Lab Day: "Alice" by Moby
        I can't really get enough of this song, you know? I plan to use it later on in the series.

  18. Chapter Eighteen: Metal Kitsune Heart: "Metal Heart" by Garbage
        More Shirley Manson for the Mother, anyone?

  19. Chapter Nineteen: One of a Kind: "One of a Kind" by Placebo
        The Meds album from the songs that I heard help so Hisoka fighting his battle in rehab.

  20. Chapter Twenty: Innocence to Love: "Fidelity" by Regina Spektor
        I've used this song before back in Halo, but I just had to use it again for here.

  21. Chapter Twenty-One: Demon Debt Crisis: "Forever for Her (Is Over for Me)" by the White Stripes
        The song's actually pretty funny for this chapter.

  22. Chapter Twenty-Two: Days Before She Came: "Days Before You Came" by Placebo
        The songs from Black Market Music also work for Hisoka's struggles as well.

  23. Chapter Twenty-Three: Grandfather: "Vampires" by Pet Shop Boys
        I won't lie: This song was just a random pick.

  24. Chapter Twenty-Four: Lonely: "Rushing" by Moby
        This song always makes me think of yuri and lesbians for some reason.

  25. Chapter Twenty-Five: Fox Poison: "The World is not Enough" by Garbage
        Ah, more Garbage for Tsuzuki and the Mother's unholy union.

  26. Chapter Twenty-Six: Fool Queen: "Burger Queen" by Placebo
        It's too slow and sad for my taste, but it works for this chapter.

  27. Chapter Twenty-Seven: Akio: "Into the Blue" by Sneaker Pimps
        Second random pick for this story.

  28. Chapter Twenty-Eight: Confusing Love: "Dreams" by Fleetwood Mac
        This is a sweet song for the chapter here.

  29. Chapter Twenty-Nine: Polar: "Level" by the Raconteurs
        This song just feels Mike and Vivian for this; don't ask why.

        Can't go wrong with Sneaker Pimps

  33. Chapter Thirty-Three: End Game: "After Every Party I Die" by Sneaker Pimps
        More random Sneaker Pimps, yay!

  34. Chapter Thirty-Four: Love with Confusion: "Hidden Place" by Bjork
        Bjork just works so well with Hotaru, you know?

  35. Chapter Thirty-Five: Taming Plot: "Cut" by the Cure
        This band's music sometimes works for this series. I don't know why yet.

  36. Chapter Thirty-Six: "Strict Machine (Benny Benassi Sfaction edit)" by Goldfrapp
        Ah, here's the Goldfrapp I'm more used to.

  37. Chapter Thirty-Seven: Akio III: "Karma Police" by Radiohead
        Damn, I haven't heard this song in this series since Cherry.

  38. Chapter Thirty-Eight: Uneasy Heart: "Haemogoblin" by Placebo
        And we have returned back to Placebo and Hisoka in rehab with this one.

        This version of the song clearly show Tsuzuki's desperation to not have Anna killed before he can save her.

  40. Chapter Forty: Long Black Out Night: "Ask for Answers" by Placebo
        I just had to use this song for this chapter. I had the idea for it for a long time too.

  41. Chapter Forty-One: Second First Impressions: "I Love to Move in Here" by Moby
        Last Night is one of Moby's best albums in my opinion.

  42. Chapter Forty-Two: Gravity of Love: "Gravity of Love" by Enigma
        It's a little too dramatic for this chapter, but it manages to work all the same.

  43. Chapter Forty-Three: Goth and Puppy: "Get Him Back" by Fiona Apple
        This song just had to used! 'Nough said!

  44. 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.

  45. Chapter Forty-Five: Approaching Normal: "Passive Aggressive" by Placebo
        More with Placebo and Hisoka in rehab, only this time, we're about to wrap up here.

  46. Chapter Forty-Six: Two Women: "Breathe" by Telepopmusik
        I haven't heard this song in ages and felt like using it in this case.

  47. Chapter Forty-Seven: Whirlwind Love: "Ooh La La" by Goldfrapp
        Third random pick for this list.

        Kylie bring the Anna-Mother storyline full circle here.

  50. Chapter Fifty: Support: "1234" by Feist
