It’s no secret that Sage and I are big music fans….the fact that this playlist is 535 songs (and counting) should make that fact abundantly clear. The wonderful thing about music is that you can hear a song and you can instantly be transported to the movie or TV scene it played in or the moment you heard the song for the first time. We’ve got some songs on the playlist that will forever be associated with something else. But that doesn’t mean they can’t apply to Rose and Ten or Doctor Who in general. Let’s take a look at a few, shall we?
“Chasing Cars” – Snow Patrol
“I don’t quite know
How to say how I feel.
Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough.
If I lay here,
If I just lay here,
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”
“Chasing Cars” is FOREVER linked with the Season Two finale of Grey’s Anatomy (“I thought I was a surgeon, but I’m NOT. So I quit.”) but very much applies to Rose and Ten as well. Look at that gif. In my head canon, Rose and Ten had many days like that…peaceful days where no trouble found them. No monsters. No threats of imminent destruction. No need to save the universe. Just days where they were together laying on the ground with his overcoat spread out beneath them while they talked and snuggled and watched the world go by. Yep. It happened all the time.
And “I don’t quite know how to say how I feel. Those three words, they’re said too much”? Nope. Not at all relevant to their relationship.
OH WAIT EXCEPT IT TOTALLY IS RELEVANT.
