Fanmix: Spy Kind of Guy and Happy Fourth of July!  
Title: Spy Guys
Disclaimer: Files are of varying (mostly lower) quality and are meant for previewing purposes. If you like a song, check out the artist and support them! If it's possible, I mean. Some of these songs are harder to find than others.
Thanks: to kleenexwoman for the Kraftwerk track, the Junior Brown track, and the Toy Dolls track.
Notes: So awhile ago I was like, tell me spy songs! People did, sort of, and I went, "Hmm, okay, this is not what I was looking for." Then I realized that was being lazy and should just go looking for my own damn spy songs if I was going to be so picky. So I did. This is the fruit of my labors. (Seriously, it took a long time.)

Also, I kept running across songs I liked, but only for Illya or only for Napoleon or just for the two of them together. So, yeah, I actually have three other playlists. It's kind of one big project, really.

Disc One - Link (58.67 MB)

Leonard Cohen – First We Take Manhattan

You loved me as a loser
But now you're worried that I just might win
You know the way to stop me
But you don't have the discipline
How many nights I prayed for this: to let my work begin
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin

S.P.O.C.K. – Agent 5

Agent 5
Is he alive?
Been lost for days
without a trace
He is equipped with a beacon device
intended for situations like this

We can still see the blips on our screen
telling us exactly where he is

But what if he has been executed
and someone has stolen his gear!
Agent 5
Is he alive?
We haven't heard
a single word

The Decemberists – The Perfect Crime #2

The bagman's quaking at the fingers
The hand-off glance a little lingers
A well-dressed man in the crosshairs
A shot rings out from somewhere upstairs

It was a perfect, the perfect, the perfect,
the perfect, the perfect, the perfect crime

Le Tigre – Don’t Drink Poison

I left the code at the coat-check
Pointed to the word on my neck
That's me, all night on stand-by
Three words, three things, oh please please!

Don't, don't drink poison . . .

Wolf Girl, poolside, I'm in the lobby
Gay concierge-spy high fives me
It's all cool, enemy-style
Smile at the TV while you download her file

Billy May Orchestra – The Man With The Golden Arm


The Ramones – Havana Affair

PT-boat on the way to Havana
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana
Now I'm a guide for the CIA
Hooray for the USA!
Baby, baby, make me loco
Baby, baby, make me Mambo
Sent to spy on a Cuban talent show
First stop--Havana au go-go
I used to make a living, man
Pickin' the banana
Hooray for Havana!

They Might Be Giants – Spy

If you want to be a spy
Then you must really see
And you must really see
If you want to be a spy like me

Come on
I might gaze on a submarine
I see your face smiling at me
Even when I close my eyes
Your silhouette is smiling at me

But you will never understand me
Because I have a special job
I wish I could break the spy glass

Melissa Etheridge – Secret Agent

Her disguise is specialized
And her code is confidential
It's her modus operandi
She's a threat
Makes you sweat
As she drags her cigarette
Man, what you see
Ain't always what you get

Interpol – Slow Hands

We spies
We slow hands
You put the weights all around yourself
We spies
Oh yeah, we slow hands
We retire like nobody else
We spies
Intimate slow hands
Killer for hire you know not yourself
We spies
Intimate slow hands
You let the face slap around herself

The Metrolites - The Man From M.E.T.R.O.


Gogol Bordello vs. Tamir Muskat - When I Was A Little Spy

When I was a little spy
Supernatural 'n' infantile
I learned well how to hide
I learned well how to hide
I was an expert on her
And a thousand of her skirts

Blur – We’ve Got A File On You

We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you
We've got a file on you

Poets and Pornstars - Spy vs. Spy

You duck into an alleyway,
To change your old disguise.
Till you catch the enemy from the
corner of your eye.

Everywhere you turn to look
there’s a pistol and a smile
You jump to your feet and
Thank the devil for a fight.

Disc Two
Link (52.67 MB)

Bernard Herrmann – Overture (from North by Northwest)


Kraftwerk - Numbers

[The lyrics are samples from the Conet Project.]

Bauhaus – Spy in the Cab

Hidden in the dashboard
The unseen mechanized eye
Under surveillance
The road is full of cats’ eyes
It's sick function to pry
The spy in the cab

Modest Mouse – Secret Agent X-9

Got a racecar grin and a calculation
And every gun for a secret agent
Defunct that timebomb at the space station
Hey, Secret Agent X-9, why don't you drop me a line?
And say, would it cost you your job
To say what was in that gold box?
So why did they give you that job?
And why can they give you that job?
You'd think this guy was on a permanent vacation
But no, he's not, he's a secret agent

Was (Not Was) – Spy in the House of Love

I told her
I am a spy in the house of love
Gathering clues to be used
in the war of the affections
I am a spy in the house of love
I won't be refused
I'm waiting for your heart's defection

The Olympics - Secret Agents (aka My Baby Loves The Secret Agent)

They tellin' me I'd better get smart
Or me and her are gonna have to part now

How my baby loves the secret agent!

Matt Costa – Cigarette Eyes

Feel uneasy
I think of you less
My mind is so restless and I'm feeling depressed
Oh my, oh my
To see you with that spy
You lie, but I know 'cause
I've got cigarette eyes

Foreign Legion - Secret Agent

I live a life of a secret agent man
Undercover, trained to kill in Japan
With bare hands
Travel to unknown lands from the sands
Of Africa,
Paris, France,
Jungles of South America

Workin' for a top secret agency
My boss pages me at three in the morning
Shit's on.

Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet - Spy School Graduation Theme


Junior Brown - Cagey Bea

Cagey Bea, Cagey Bea
Cagiest babushka in the land of the free
Gettin' secrets undercover
From so many others
But she's only gettin' lovin' outta me.

Toy Dolls - James Bond Lives Down Our Street

James Bond lives down our street
Sometimes he gets a helicopter to work
James Bond lives down our street
Me dad's old-fashioned and he says he's a jerk
He's always chasing a heavy mob
He should go out and get a proper job
Yes, he should go out and get a proper job sometime

The Hunters - Russian Spy and I

The Russian spy and I
We both wonder why
The world is split in two

Green Day - Espionage


Bonus track

The Detroit Cobras - My Baby Loves The Secret Agent

Covers made using:
- Old Essentials Brushes

Looks wonderful but I don't know how to deal with RARs.
Viscount Troll: BB BB BB [Y/A]abrandnewboom on July 11th, 2008 12:15 pm (UTC)
I'm in a somewhat less esteemed spy fandom, so I was naturally interested in some of these...AND THEN I D/LED BOTH DISCS. HA.

Thnx bb. <3
DrWorm: bananaphonedrworm on July 14th, 2008 06:48 am (UTC)

And yay, icon! I love that episode. LOL oh Zark.
philstar22philstar22 on July 16th, 2008 02:36 am (UTC)
I thought I was the only one who still watched this series. I saw it for the first time last year, and have been saving up to buy the new dvd set. I love it so much. I wish I had an awesome icon to show my love.
DrWorm: bananaphonedrworm on July 17th, 2008 04:04 am (UTC)
There are actually a few communities for Man From UNCLE on LJ! And there's a medium-sized group of dedicated fans, I guess. I don't know, I just started watching it last March, but it is a totally fun show. :D If only those dvds weren't so expensive. :/
aunt_zelda: HandyDandyDeathRayaunt_zelda on August 31st, 2009 10:07 pm (UTC)
Ooooo, cool! Thanks muchly, there are a lot of great songs here!
(Especially helpful, seeing as I'm going to embark upon a crossover spy fic sometime soon.)
