Will we hear Ross Copperman again in "The Vampire Diaries" finale?  
Holding on and letting go to Hunger?

So two of the biggest moments in the Damon and Elena relationship were highlighted by lovely songs by Ross Copperman. Their first real kiss was accompanied by his "Holding On And Letting Go," and their final dance and kiss before Damon had to say goodbye to Elena in her Sleeping Beauty state was delivered to the strains of his "Hunger." Well, I'm thinking there is a real possibility that at some point during Damon and Elena's final scenes of the series we may hear another song by Mr. Copperman.

Now "Breathe" is my best guess, but there are a few others I could see being played for them as well. The others are "The One," "Can't Stop Loving You" and "I Don't Wanna Let You Go." Yes, you would think that last one would be my top pick (with that "letting go" theme), but most of the lyrics for "Breathe" almost eerily fit. A good portion of IDWLYG fit, but the overall song feels more like Damon after he decided to make up with Elena in "The Devil Inside" (before Katherine ripped his heart into a million pieces while possessing Elena), but that one particular portion, ooh, the lyrics there are so perfectly Damon/Elena:

Lying here, under the stars
I feel the beating of your heart
By your side, that's were I'll be
You can put your trust in me
I'll hold ya tight, just stay tonight

Cuz I don't wanna let you go,
I'd be lost without you,
I think you should know,
I'm here and I don't wanna let you go

I've been waiting for you,
I've built my world around you,
Let me show you how

Cuz I don't wanna let you go,
I'd be lost without you,
I think you should know,
I'm here and I don't wanna let you go
As for "Can't Stop Loving You," there's really only one verse that fits them now, but it's the main repeated chorus and it *really* fits them.

So when I start thinking about forever
That's when I start thinking about you yeah
Cuz I can't picture one day of my life without you, whoah
You know it's true, yeah
Cuz I can't stop loving you
Then there is "The One." This fits them and is beautiful, but it's more of a generic love song without the specificity that "Breathe" has. Still, it does scream Damon and Elena, and it *is* Ross Copperman.

When the blue sky turns to gray
When you feel like runnin' away
Then you have more than you can take
And your heart is bleeding
When you're just a little short on hope
I'll be at the end of your road
I'll save you with one little love note
When you read it

I wanna be the one that calms you down
Be the one when your world turns inside out
Wanna be the one when the sun goes down
Wanna be the one (x3)
Wanna be the one holding your hand
Wanna give you everything I can
Wanna hear you say the words I am
Wanna be the one
I wanna be the one

Wanna make you promises I keep
Unlock my heart and lose the key
Just tell me what it is you need
There is nothing I wouldn't do

I wanna be the one that calms you down
Be the one when your world turns inside out
Wanna be the one when the sun goes down
Wanna be the one (x3)
Wanna be the one holding your hand
Wanna give you everything I can
Wanna hear you say the words I am
Wanna be the one
I wanna be the one

(Repeat x2)

Yeah, when the blue sky turns to gray
When you feel like runnin' away
Then you have more than you can take
Finally, here are the full lyrics for "Breathe" and these, well, these fit the current situation so well (again for the most part, there is one line or two that doesn't quite work, but hey, it's not like we ever hear the full song anyway!

Oh, welcome back
The fog has lifted
Feels like years have passed
Since you went missing
Now I'm in your room
And I'm in your space
I know your truth
Don't hide your face

Stop, breathe in again, release completely
Out and in, it's elementary
You're in command
Oh, anything can happen when you start
Breathing again

I bet your limbs are weak
For treading water
Oh, how you fought the deep
Still it pulled you under
But then I came for you
And you pled your case
I saw your truth
And I held your face
And I said.

Stop, breathe in again, release completely
Out and in, it's elementary
You're in command
Oh, anything can happen when you start
Breathing again

Oh, there's nothing more extraordinary
Oh, you can find your sanctuary
Oh, no… Yesterday won't matter when you start …
Breathing again
Again, again…

Stop, breathe in again, release completely
Out and in, it's elementary
You're in command
Oh, anything can happen when you start
Anything can happen when you start…
Breathing again
None of these or even anything by Copperman may be used, but I just wanted to see what others thought.

I have no opinion. I have never heard of him.

He's the one who sang "Holding On and Letting Go" when Damon and Elena kissed on the porch in "The New Deal," and he sang "Hunger" which played over their dance and final kiss (and Stefan telling Caroline his list of why he loves her) in "I'm Thinking Of You All The While," the season 06 finale.

I can't even remember those songs of the top of my head, but don't like most of TVD's songs anyway.

No, that's not fair, disliking them would mean that they made any sort of impression. I just don't find them at all memorable.

I'd always be happy for more Florence and the Machine though.

Ah, I like them and they hold a special place in my heart because of the scenes they accompanied. (And "Hunger" fits D/E ridiculously well.)

Another Copperman song would be beautiful. I agree, "breathe" would fit best. Also this part:
I bet your limbs are weak
For treading water
Oh, how you fought the deep
Still it pulled you under
somehow remind me of "Never let me go" another very important DE song.

Ooh, yeah, that has an added bonus with the connection to "Never Let Me Go." Nice catch!

Hm... intriguing... Good thinking!
I can very well imagine they would use another Ross-Copperman-Song for the finale. I love both "Holding on" and "Hunger".
In two weeks we'll know.

I have to admit I think I'll be a little disappointed if we don't get a Copperman song.

JustToLetYouKnow that I can't wait for your finale post
First off, sadly, we didn't get an epic song of any kind, after all, but then again, I kind of get why we didn't so it's OK.

In other news, I hope you're not one of those fans who are now wallowing in despair (I'm sure you aren't!) and instead you are working on a very, very, very long write-up for the finale :) Just wanted to pop in and say that I can't wait to read your thoughts!!! :) Because, yeah, I was feeling like throwing something on the screen for about... 10 minutes (lol), but then I got over it and realized that while the lack of DE screen time may be upsetting, and I get it, and I *am* and forever will be a little sad about that, there were also a 1000 things to love about the finale, and I'm not going to let that one not perfect aspect of it all to ruin the 8-year-long experience. Anyway. I'm going to save listing those 1000 things for your 8x16 post ;) Although I'm sure you'll list most of them, so I won't have to haha

♥!

Re: JustToLetYouKnow that I can't wait for your finale post
Yeah, bummed about no song, but I understand too.

No, I'm not wallowing (as if!), yes as a shipper I wanted more, but as a TVD fan, I was VERY happy. I'm working on gifs now, have notes written (from my 2 watches) and am going to start (start being the key word as I doubt I'll finish it() tonight. I expect it will be quite long. Yeah.
