The television show Ballykissangel spends its first three seasons following the story of Peter Clifford, a Catholic priest from England who is moved to a small Irish town. The series centers around the day-to-day affairs of the town and as it progresses, begins to focus on Peter's relationship with Assumpta. Assumpta Fitzgerald is an atheist and the owner of the town's local pub and yet slowly the two manage to become friends. As their feelings deepen, so does their confusion about how to move forward when what they feel should never have happened in the first place.

This mix is mainly from Peter's point of view and does take into account the end of "The Reckoning," even if I usually stop that episode before I make it that far. Take out track 8 if you don't want to think about that.

1. Love is Pleasin', The Dubliners
and what can't be cured, love
has to be endured, love

2. Poison & Wine, The Civil Wars
oh your mouth is poison your mouth is wine
you think your dreams are the same as mine
oh i don't love you but i always will

3. Not Meant To Be, Theory of a Dead Man
but I'm caught between what you wanted from me
and knowing that if i give that to you
i might just disappear

4. For What It's Worth, The Cardigans
the four letter word got stuck in my head
the dirtiest word that i've ever said
it's making me feel alright

5. Bloodstream, Stateless
you've gotten into my bloodstream
i can feel you flowing in me

6. And Then You, Greg Laswell
how my thoughts they spin me 'round
and how my thoughts they let me down
and then there's you

7. True, Ryan Cabrera
but deep inside the corner of my mind
i'm attached to you

8. Talking to the Moon, Bruno Mars
i know you're somewhere out there
somewhere far away
i want you back

9. Wild Mountain Thyme, traditional

This is such a great mix! I've never seen the show, but from your description everything seems to fit so well! I love that you bookended it with traditional Irish music, and the whole mix had such a chill, kinda sad/kinda hopeful vibe that matches what I'd imagine this relationship to be. Great job! :)

This mix is really lovely and understated. I don't know the characters but the impossible love comes through in the songs.
