Our ‘Timeless’ 2×07 Soundtrack: “Mrs. Sherlock Holmes”

By

Sometimes there are shows that bring people together. Right now, for the Fangirlish staff, Timeless is that show. Years ago, some of us came together through Arrow, and stayed together because the bonds of friendship had already been established, but in the last few years Timeless has given us the unique chance to fangirl again, to exchange all-caps texts and to just enjoy something, together.

And that’s why, today, we want to celebrate that, and at the same time, build up the hype for the fifth episode of Timeless a little more, with this episode “Mrs. Sherlock Holmes” soundtrack. All credit goes to Mimi for the idea. Here it is, Mimi. We’re doing it every week. Let’s see if we can do this without giving too much away!

Lizzie’s Picks

“Flawless” by Beyonce

We teach girls to shrink themselves
To make themselves smaller
We say to girls
“You can have ambition
But not too much
You should aim to be successful
But not too successful
Otherwise you will threaten the man

“Let Her Go” by Passenger

Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

“Fix You” by Coldplay

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

Alyssa’s Picks

“I Was Here” by Beyonce

I wanna leave my footprints on the sands of time
Know there was something that meant something that I left behind
When I leave this world, I’ll leave no regrets
Leave something to remember, so they won’t forget

I was here
I lived, I loved
I was here
I did, I’ve done everything that I wanted
And it was more than I thought it would be
I will leave my mark so everyone will know
I was here

“Keeping On Without You” by This Providence

You paint my broken heart
Like some awful piece of art
And I watch my world
As it falls down around
But still I pray
You will come back some day
I, I will keep on without you

“Goodbye to the Girl” by David Cook

Take a look at where we used to be
Now I’m just a vessel lost at sea
I can’t over you
I don’t know what to do

Lyra’s Picks

“Woman” by Kesha

I’m a motherfucking woman, baby, alright
I don’t need a man to be holding me too tight
I’m a motherfucking woman, baby, that’s right
I’m just having fun with my ladies here tonight
I’m a motherfucker
Mmm, yeah

“I Don’t Want to Know” by Sigrid

I don’t wanna meet ya, I don’t wanna talk
‘Cause I don’t wanna know that nothing’s changed at all
You don’t need a reason, this is not your fault
I don’t wanna know, I don’t wanna know
I don’t wanna do

and just because I went to see Sigrid this week…here’s one of her new songs not out yet!

“Doing You a Favor” by Sigrid

I tried to be all kind
You’re somebody’s perfect, not mine
I’ll be the one you had
But you can’t ignore
We’re just a beat with no rhythm and we’re not even close
I’ll make it back to the rhythm on my own

Consensus Pick

“Fight Like a Girl” by Zolita*

I will sleep when I’m dead
A revolution’s waking up in my head
You wanna listen what a real girl said
It’s a woman’s world
Boy I’ll stop you right there
Keep tryna shake me but I really don’t care
You wanna listen what a real girl said?
It’s a woman’s world

My body my choice, my rights and my voice
(can’t grab me by the)
My body my choice, my rights and my voice
(can’t grab me by the)

* It’s been on a previous list for “The Kennedy Curse” but it’s especially relevant in this episode!

Timeless airs at 10/9 on NBC.
