"Old Number Seven" - my Dean/Castiel song

A few months ago, for whatever reason, I had this massive bout of nostalgia for old school Dean/Cas. Like, circa 2009-2011 old school. At that time, I was running with a lot of extremely talented, very wonderful Casgirls, and OOF, oh man, so much of old school Dean/Cas was unheimlich and slithering and thoughtful and otherworldly (but grounded) and everything I like in my Dean/Cas--and in my angels broadly speaking.

I tend not to yearn for Dean/Cas long enough to actually go find any--outside of very contentedly running through all my favorite Dean and Castiel scenes in canon--but the feeling does come up.

And I feel a little dumb sharing the vid, now, because it's SO on the nose and probably a disservice to the very old school Dean/Cas it always reminds me of, but whenever I hear this song, I fall in love with vaguely creepy-definitely weird-but extremely intense old school Dean/Cas. THE HEART HEARS WHAT THE HEART HEARS, OKAY. This would be S4 Dean/Cas, not just any Dean/Cas:

Old Number 7 - The Devil Makes Three

I guess I grew up on an old dirt road
Pedal to the metal always did what I was told
'Till I found out that my brand new clothes
Came second hand from the rich kids next door
When I grew up fast I guess I grew up mean
There's a thousand things inside my head I wish I ain't seen
And now I just wander through a real bad dream
Feelin' like I'm coming apart at the seams

Thank you Jack Daniel's Old Number Seven
Tennessee Whiskey got me drinking in heaven
Angels start to look good to me
They're gonna have to deport me to the fiery deep
Thank you Jack Daniel's Old Number Seven
Tennessee Whiskey got me drinking in heaven
I know I can't stay here too long
'Cause I can't go a week without doin' wrong

So I'm sitting as the bar stool it starts to grow roots
Feelin' like an old worn out pair of shoes
Tell me what is it that I should do
When I'm swimming in the liquor only half way through
So I'm watching as his wings spread as wide as could be
Come on now and wrap them around me
'Cause all I want to do now is fall to sleep
Come down here and lay next to me
