Our ‘Timeless’ 2×09 & 2×10 Soundtrack: “The General” & “Chinatown”

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 “The General” & “Chinatown” 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!

“Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Listen baby, ain’t no mountain high,
Ain’t no valley low, ain’t no river wide enough baby
If you need me call me no matter where you are
No matter how far; don’t worry baby
Just call my name; I’ll be there in a hurry
You don’t have to worry

“It Will Rain” by Bruno Mars

‘Cause there’ll be no sunlight
If I lose you, baby
There’ll be no clear skies
If I lose you, baby
Just like the clouds
My eyes will do the same, if you walk away
Everyday it will rain

“I Just Called to Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder

I just called to say I love you
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart

“Ain’t No Sunshine” by Bill Withers

Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
It’s not warm when she’s away
Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone
And she’s always gone too long

“Bad Dream” by Ruelle

Feels like I’m falling, into a world
Into a world I can’t control
I hear it calling
Down in my soul
Gripping my bones
It won’t let go

Wake me up
Won’t you wake me up?
Caught in a bad dream

“Walk Through the Fire” by Zayde Wolf featuring Ruelle

Did we take too many chances
Or did we let too many pass us
Did we throw it all away?
Did we throw it all away?
Did we light too many matches?
Turn ourselves into these ashes
Did we throw it all away?
Did we throw it all away?

“Oceans Away” by A R I Z O N A

I never felt
A room so still
See the future coming
Hope it isn’t real
I learned to fake a smile
As the time runs out
I don’t wanna wait
Oh, I don’t wanna mistake

“World Gone Mad” by Bastille

So this is where we are
It’s not where we had wanted to be
If half the world’s gone mad
The other half just don’t care, you see
You don’t wanna fuck with us
British to the very last
When it feels (feels) like the world’s gone mad (mad)
And there’s nothing you can do (do) about it
No there’s nothing you can do about it (about it)

“Sanctuary” by Welshly Arms

When the darkness don’t let you sleep
I’ma hold you close
And when space is all you need
I can let you go
And if the spark in your eye goes out
I can be your glow
Bringing you home, yeah

Consensus Pick

“Rewrite the Stars” by Zac Efron and Zendaya

What if we rewrite the stars?
Say you were made to be mine
Nothing could keep us apart
You’d be the one I was meant to find
It’s up to you, and it’s up to me
No one can say what we get to be
So why don’t we rewrite the stars?
Maybe the world could be ours
