the yellow umbrella; listen
"And that, kids, is how I met your mother."
A mix for becoming the person worthy of your soulmate, for struggling and growing so when you finally meet the one, you realize that this is who you’ve been working towards the entire time.
(Also has a lot of songs featured in himym eps because they fit really well so yeah)
i. la vie en rose (from how i met your mother) - cristin milioti (give your heart and soul to me / and life will always be / la vie en rose)
ii. think of me - rosi golan (when you’re thinking that you’re just plain crazy / because you’re on your own / think of me)
iii. the next time around - little joy (if nothing ventured, nothing learned … in time, i’ll belong to you / it’s how it’s meant to be)
iv. haven’t met you yet - michael bublé (i might have to wait, i’ll never give up / i guess it’s half timing and the other half’s luck / wherever you are, whenever it’s right / you’ll come out of nowhere and into my life)
v. silver lining - rilo kiley (i was your silver lining / but now i’m gold)
vi. it’s hard to get around the wind - alex turner (and even though you know the way it’s gonna blow / it’s hard to get around the wind)
vii. find love - prince of spain (when it tells you to do / what your heart says to do / don’t be shy … i will do what i have to / to find love / to find you)
viii. simple as this - jake bugg (i’ve been falling, crashing, breaking … oh and the answer well who would have guessed / could be something as simple as this)
ix. sing - she & him (open your arms and sing / the world’s been waiting, they’ve been waiting for years … find a quiet peace and have a good laugh / i’m glad to see you / yes, i’m glad to see you)
x. when we first met - hellogoodbye (and this thought, made it clearer / i ought to be near her / all i see is where our days repeat / and our love goes on)
xi. simple song - the shins (remember walking a mile to your house, a glow in the dark / i made a fumblin’ play for your heard and the act struck a spark)
xii. stay young, go dancing - death cab for cutie (‘cause when she sings i hear a symphony / and i’m swallowed in sound as it echoes through me … we’ll stay young, go dancing)
xiii. heaven - the walkmen (our children will always hear / romantic tales of distant years)
— FIN. Farewell HIMYM.
I was going to let this sit until tomorrow when I (one would hope) might be thinking more clearly—but my anger over the absolute ruination of what is quite probably my favorite sitcom of all time is 100% justified, so I’m going to slam this down right here and now.
Ted and Robin…
oh god… perfect.
Fun Fact, David Nellist (the guy who plays Mike Standford) has THIS as his twitter profile pic
I’m watching Star Trek: Into Darkness with my dad and when Khan is having his moment in the brig my dad just looks at me dead serious and goes “The more this man talks the gayer I get.”
I’ll just… leave this here.
