Merlin is a show with a new take on the King Arthur myths. It starts when Arthur is still just a prince, and Merlin becomes his servant. Together they protect the kingdom, ridding it of evil magical creatures at the command of King Uther (aka King Anti-Magic). Slowly, they become equals and begin to understand each other. Oh, and Merlin's magic is still a secret. How that works is probably the biggest mystery of the show.
Modern day Merlin AUs are probably some of my favorite things in the world. They take everything I love about the show, and just transport it into the 21st century. This mix talks basically about wanting and longing for the one you love. I think no matter what age Arthur and Merlin are in, they're still stuck in the same cycle of pining for the other, and this mix I think reflects that. There are a few reincarnation elements to this mix as well, but it wasn't my original intention. :P

matt kearney // ships in the night
like ships in the night
you keep passing me by
we're just wasting time
trying to prove who's right
and if it all goes crashing into the sea
if it's just you and me trying to find the light

ellie goulding // guns and horses
let's join forces
we've got guns and horses
i know you've been burned
but every fire is a lesson learned

amy macdonald // run
but i will run until my feet no longer run no more
and i will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
and i will love until my heart it aches
and i will love until my heart it breaks
and i will love until there's nothing more to live for

mumford and sons // white blank page
and can you kneel before the king
and say i'm clean, i'm clean
but tell me now where was my fault
in loving you with my whole heart

ivy // edge of the ocean
oh, we can begin again
shed our skin, let the sun shine in
at the edge of the ocean
we can start over again

kings of leon // closer
where am i now?
baby where do i sleep?
feels so good but i'm so old
two thousands years of chasing taking its toll

anna nalick // catalyst
i might be inclined to be yours for the taking
and part of this terrible mess that you're making
but me, i'm the catalyst

of monsters and men // king and lionheart
and as the world comes to an end
i'll be here to hold your hand
cause you're my king and i'm your lionheart
a lionheart
