Our ‘Timeless’ 2×01 Soundtrack: “The War To End All Wars”

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 premiere episode of Timeless a little more, with this Episode “The War to End All Wars” 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!

Alyssa’s picks

“Pieces” by RED

Then I’ll see your face/I know I’m finally yours/I find everything I thought I lost before/ You call my name/I come to you in pieces/So you can make me whole

“I’d Come For You” by Nickelback

I was blindfolded, but now I’m seeing/My mind was closing, now I’m believing/I finally know just what it means to let someone in,/To see the side of me that no one does, or ever will

“Whisper” by Evanescence

I’m frightened by what I see/But somehow I know/That there’s much more to come

Lyra’s picks

“Without you” by Oh Wonder


‘Cause I’m kicking up stones without you/Can’t pick up the phone without you/I’m a little bit lost without you/Without you

“Always in My Head” by Coldplay

But though I try my heart stays still/It never moves/Just won’t be led/And so my mouth waters to be fed/And you’re always in my head/You’re always in my head/You’re always in my head/You’re always in my head

“Home” Phillip Phillips

Hold on, to me as we go/As we roll down this unfamiliar road/And although this wave is stringing us along/Just know you’re not alone/’Cause I’m going to make this place your home

Lizzie’s picks

“Terrified” by Katherine McPhee with Zachary Levy

And this could be good/It’s already better than that/And nothing’s worse/Than knowing you’re holding back/I could be all/That you needed/If you let me try

“(Everything I do) I Do It For You” by Bryan Adams

Look into your heart/You will find/There’s nothin’ there to hide/Take me as I am
Take my life/I would give it all, I would sacrifice

“Arms Open” by The Script

I can’t unfeel your pain/I can’t undo what’s done/I can’t send back the rain/But if I could I would/My love, my arms are open

Our consensus pick

“Shake It Out” by Florence and the Machine

‘Cause I am done with my graceless heart/So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart/’Cause I like to keep my issues strong/It’s always darkest before the dawn

So, that’s it – those are our songs for “The War to End All Wars.” Come talk to us after the episode airs and tell us if you agree or disagree! And, remember, Timeless premieres tonight at 10/9c on NBC.
