Commentary/Warning: Damon, Damon, Damon. I love writing him, and there are many times I feel he is the most dynamic character that The Vampire Diaries
, book or show, has to offer. At the same time, he's one of the few characters not given a clear side to be on. Most of the time he ends up on the side of good, but ultimately his philosophy tends to be hedonistic as well as selfish and in the moment. Which I think is the one part that makes him awesome. In a context where everyone else is so sure of their altrustic intentions, Damon is the only contrast to that. Without him, Stefan and Elena (and even Bonnie and Matt, etc.) would be boring precisely because they are hardly ever tempted to do something wrong. Valient, yes, they do valient things. They learn to be braver. They make hard choices. But they act with the best of intentions. Whereas, if anything, Damon hardly ever has the best intentions.
That said, this mix was made specifically with the television show characterization in mind. There are songs that fit more directly, and songs that are obviously based on a slight interpretation of the show's canon. There are songs that had a fitting tone. There are explicit lyrics, and there are sexist lyrics, and I thought hard about including them before deciding that, at least in part, they fit with Damon's characterization would be like. I did want to warn about that part, though. Also the lyrics I included here are kind of arbitrary.
