We just have a lot of feelings.

Even though I was born in Michigan, I grew up in Nashville, so country music is practically ingrained into my DNA.  I LOVE country music, and I get very annoyed when anyone says they hate it.  In fact, I am convinced that anyone that says they hate country music has never really given it a chance.  Sure there are some TERRIBLE songs (“Red Solo Cup” is the most recent big hit that comes to mind), but that’s true of any genre (“Gangnam Style” anyone?).  To me, what sets Country Music apart as a genre is its focus on story telling.  Not that a good pop song can’t tell a story (we’ve got hundreds on this playlist that do) but country songs often take it to the next level and can make you feel all sorts of emotions.   Naturally, there are many country songs on this playlist that conjure up Doctor Who feelings.  So those who claim to HATE country should give these songs a listen and then get back to me.

And if you get back to me and say you still hate country music, I can’t help you.  And I also question whether or not you have a soul.

“Somebody Like You” – Keith Urban

“There’s a new wind blowing like I’ve never known.
I’m breathing deeper than I’ve ever done.
And it sure feels good to finally feel the way I do.
I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you.

And I’m letting go of all my lonely yesterdays.
I’ve forgivin’ myself for the mistakes I’ve made.
Now there’s just one thing, the only thing I wanna do.
I wanna love somebody, love somebody like you…”

This song screams the Ninth Doctor at the end of “End of the World”, which I also covered in my last playlist post.  While the Doctor still has many many gruff moments post “End of the World” (which IS only the second episode of the series), I always pinpoint the end of that episode as the moment where The Doctor started to heal and began to open himself up to Rose.  He doesn’t completely change all at once, there would be no fun in that.  It’s an ongoing process.   But in that moment where he and Rose head off to get some chips, The Doctor begins to let go of his past and relax and allows himself to think that there could be something more for him.

“Come on then, tightwad. Chips are on me. We’ve only got five billion years ’til the shops close. “

“I Run To You” – Lady Antebellum

“We run on fumes
Your life and mine
Like the sands of time
Slippin’ right on through
And our love’s the only truth
That’s why I run to you.

This world keeps spinning faster
Into a new disaster so I run to you
I run to you baby
And when it all starts coming undone
Baby you’re the only one I run to
I run to you.”

This song is about partnership and finding that one person you can count on above anyone else.  If that is not what you think the Doctor and Rose are to each other, then you are watching the show wrong.  Fact.

“Rescue me, Chin Boy, and show me the stars!”  — Oswin Oswald, “Asylum of the Daleks”

“But every night, Doctor. When it gets dark, and the stars come out, I’ll look up on her behalf. I’ll look up at the sky. And think of you.” — Wilfred Mott, “Journey’s End”

“It’s all waiting out there, Jackie. And it’s brand new to me. All those planets, creatures and horizons—I haven’t seen them yet. Not with these eyes. And it is gonna be… fantastic.”  –The Tenth Doctor, “The Christmas Invasion”

Yeah, yeah, I know that neither one of these quotes were said by our heroine, Rose Tyler.  But I DO think that these quotes demonstrate one of the greatest appeals of traveling with The Doctor for the companion…seeing the stars!  It’s why Rose ran away with The Doctor in the first place…she knew she wanted to see something MORE than what she had going on in her current life.  Heck, it’s why we all watch the show.  It’s why I went to Space Camp THREE TIMES (#nerdalert).  We ALL want to run away with The Doctor and see all of time and space.  It’s why we’re on constant alert for that TARDIS sound.

Needless to say, there are a LOT of songs about the stars out there, and there are quite a few on our epic playlist.  Let’s take a look at some, shall we?

“Oh My Stars” – Andrew Belle

“Tell me all about your foreign wars
And all about the photographs that line your drawers
Cause i know a lot about closing doors
But not enough about what opens up yours

Oh my my
Oh my stars
Everything you see is ours
Or it could be if you would try
 I wish you would
 I wish you might
Oh oh
If everything you’ve said to me has been true
Then all my stars are leading me to you…”

This song SCREAMS Rose and Nine to me (and YES, I realize we talk a LOT about Nine here.  Because he is awesome.  Perhaps we should just rename these posts Rose and the Doctor feels?).  “Oh My Stars” conjures up images of when Rose first started traveling with The Doctor, when he was all prickly and brooding.  And (oh so gently) Rose would push him to start to FEEL again.  Conversations like this one from “The End of the World” would happen:

The Doctor: You think it’ll last forever. People and cars and concrete. But it won’t. One day it’s all gone. Even the sky. My planet’s gone. It’s dead. It burned like the Earth. It’s just rocks and dust. Before its time.
Rose: What happened?
The Doctor: There was a war and we lost.
Rose: A war with who? What about your people?
The Doctor: I’m a Time Lord. I’m the last of the Time Lords. They’re all gone. I’m the only survivor. I’m left traveling on my own because there’s no one else.
Rose: There’s me.

And thus Rose Tyler, a completely ordinary girl from London, began to melt the heart of a 900 year old Time Lord and heal his battered soul.

Rose Tyler Happy New Year

Posted by Sage

Your favorite OTP playlist took a break over the holiday season, but we’re back! Yes, it’s 2013 and we are still writing about these idiots and their stupidly gorgeous faces.

This week’s playlist post is all about time, that heartless bitch. You might think life with a TARDIS would make time inconsequential, but nope. Nope, nope, nope. As hard as he tries to outrun it or stretch it out, the Doctor’s time with his companions always ends. These five songs are all about the the role that time plays in the relationship between the Doctor and Rose Tyler.

*Disclaimer: When I told Kim which songs I picked for this week, she replied, “KILL ME.” So, you know. Fair warning.

“Time” – Chantal Kreviazuk

Time, where did you go?
Why did you leave me here alone?
Wait, don’t go so fast
I’m missing the moments as they pass

I rewatched the “End of Time” two-parter right before Christmas and was just flattened by a few things I hadn’t noticed about this heartbreaking scene.  The Doctor knows that he’s dying, and he’s on a farewell tour to all of his companions. He visits everyone in the “present” of their timelines (Martha and Mickey are engaged, Donna’s getting married), but, of course, he doesn’t have that option with Rose. He can’t go back in his own timeline and see the two of them together, so he looks in on a Rose that doesn’t know him yet.

And when a complete (albeit totally beautiful) stranger steps out of the shadows to ask a teen girl what day it is, Rose Tyler acts like she’s just met her best friend. The Doctor’s face is PAINED as he talks to her, especially when she tells him it’s 2005. He knows that she has all of their adventures ahead of her, while he’s already left them behind. And then, (this is what shattered me this time), the camera follows Rose into her building and up the stairs through the window, until she’s completely out of sight. BECAUSE HE DID TOO. CAN YOU STAND IT?

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?

Rose and Ten New Earth

“Would you lie with me and just forget the world?”

“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.

Run

Whenever I go to the gym, I always hashtag my FourSquare check-in #runningfortheTARDIS.  Technically I guess I should say #ellipticallingfortheTARDIS, but that just doesn’t roll off the tongue as well.  It is both a way to connect with my fitness buddy Jenn and very often my sole motivating factor that gets me through my cardio.  Cause let’s face it.  They do a LOT of running on Doctor Who.  And when the Doctor comes for me (SHUT UP HE WILL), I want to be ready.  I can’t be slowing him down when we are running away from Daleks or Cybermen or Dinosaurs!

There also happen to be a lot of songs about running on the playlist.  Songs about running away together.  Songs about running TOWARDS each other.  Best of all, songs that capture that incandescent and reckless feeling that comes along with being head over heels in love with someone.  Bonus: All but one of these songs are pretty happy, so you won’t want to kill yourself at the end of this post.

You’re welcome.

Rose and Tenth Doctor running and laughing

“Baby let’s just get out of this town…”

“Get Out of This Town” – Carrie Underwood

“Let’s get out of this town tonight!
Nothing but dust in the shadows,
Gone by morning light.
Somewhere we won’t ever get caught, ever be found,
Baby, let’s just get out of this town!
Don’t need directions, don’t need a map
If we get lost I’ll be good with that.
Yeah, we’ll find a way to make the time pass…”

For as much as we focus on all the ANGST that comes along with Rose and Ten (because we do love all the angst) we tend to forget about the times when they were just blissfully happy together.  The giggling and flirting in “Tooth and Claw”.  The opening scene of “The Idiot’s Lantern” (“You going my way, doll?”).  Their sexy sleuthing in “Fear Her”.  And that running gif completely personifies this song.  Yeah, they are likely running for their lives at that point.  But that moment when they look at each other and just LAUGH and keep running.  He’s saying, “Let’s get out of here, baby.”  That, my dear readers, is the breathless feeling of being in love personified.

And the line “Yeah, we’ll find a way to make the time pass…” = doing it, doing it, TARDIS doing it.  You know this to be true.

Rose and Ten The Satan Pit kiss
– Posted by Sage

I’m having a hard time starting this post, because I’m so distracted by this gif. He closes his eyes. HE CLOSES HIS EYES. Sigh. My OTP is more beautiful and star-crossed than yours.

Anyway.

Last week, the fangirl wife and I touted our respective favorites in the only 90s boy band standoff that matters: *N Sync for me, and BSB for Kimmie. In keeping with the theme, this week’s Rose and Ten Playlist picks are all teen pop oriented. I’ll take my gut-wrenching tragedy with a side of cheese, thank you.

“Get Up and Go” – Hanson

“What could I give when you’ve got all you need?
And she looks at me like, ‘all I want’s a little free’ 
Every time I’m here with you it makes me see 
That it’s alright, yeah, it’s alright 
We’ll get away, be in love, we can make it better 
All I need’s a little time for us to get together 
Happiness is just a step away 
When it’s alright, yeah, it’s alright 

Just a girl like you, and maybe just a 
Just a guy like me, maybe we 
Could take a walk on the wild side 
Take a look and see 
Get up and go.”

We focus on the sads a lot in these posts, but let’s not forget the good times. In between all the slutty French ladies, aborted love confessions, and wretched goodbyes, Rose and Ten were just having a ball, boppin’ around the universe.

Remember that time they were more concerned about getting the Queen to say, “We are not amused,” than catching the GIANT WEREWOLF that was ripping people to shreds? And how Ten almost collapsed laughing when he realized that Pete’s World Rose was a yappy dog? And how they got all greaser-ed up in matching outfits for the 50s? And when Rose referred to her first trip as their “first date” and the Doctor didn’t argue? And the way they flirted like sexy, unrelated Hardy Boys in “Fear Her”?

This song makes me imagine what it must be like to go on history’s longest road trip with the one person in the whole universe you have the most fun with.

Also, Hanson is perfection.

Pirates of the Caribbean madness or brilliance

How I feel about this playlist on a daily basis.
