torchwood fanmix - map of the falling sky (coe, general-ish)  
Map of the Falling Sky ||| A Torchwood: Children of Earth Fanmix

General. Canon relationships, canon UST. Jack, Gwen, Ianto. Jack/Ianto, Gwen/Rhys, Jack/Gwen.

For the team.






More than anything, it's the tone of this mix that reflects the mental states of the Torchwood team during the events of CoE. The songs toss you right into the action, continuing through to the end of "Day 5" (and onwards). POV shifts throughout, but always returns to one central figure, Captain Jack Harkness, and the obstacles, earth-shattering events and unimaginable decisions he faces throughout the series. Hopefully, when you listen, the songs will take on a shape, an arc, across the series that hits you where you live.







01. Map of the Falling Sky ||| Magnolia Electric Co.
with my wings in one hand and lead in the other / from the crossroads to the shore / what the horizon only tells to us ghosts
is that when it's quiet in our heart / we become the diesel we become the smoke we become the prairie we become the spark
and the only song coming in on the radio / well you take that map of the falling sky / and you lay it across your heart / and
the loneliness between us is right where you are


02. Dark Night of the Soul ||| Danger Mouse + Sparklehorse feat. David Lynch
dark dream world / all alone / shadows moving / shadows have long gone by / dark night of the soul / our souls / time slipping
by / i call out your name / all alone / distant bell ring / but steps echo / no one on these streets / calling out your name


03. Marche Funèbre ||| Soap&Skin
grow tall skin / fold on /they said: rank the wall / i say: bad weeds grow tall / hold on skin / high i walk through a firewall
bad weeds grow tall / fall, fall / hold on skin / fold on


04. The Running Goblin ||| Joker's Daughter
he thinks it's all his fault / he paints a happy face / a nightmare's trapped inside / how many sides can pass / before his
army's lost the fortress / built in charge / his silence feeds his rage / head bashed against the wall / he throws himself
on the floor / things could get overthrown / things could get unsightly / things could get out of hand


05. Woods ||| Bon Iver
i'm up in the woods / i'm down on my mind / i'm building a still / to slow down the time

06. Grandfather Clock ||| This Will Destroy You
instrumental

07. Waitin' for a Superman ||| Iron & Wine
is it overwhelming / to use a crane to crush a fly? / it's a good time for superman / to lift the sun into the sky / 'cause it's
getting heavy / well i thought it was already as heavy as can be / tell everybody waiting for superman that they should try
to hold on the best they can / he hasn't dropped them / forgot them / or anything / it's just too heavy for superman to lift


08. Puncture Repair ||| Elbow
i nearly wore the window through / where was air sea rescue? / the cavalry with tea and sympathy / you were there / puncture
repair / i leaned on you today / i regularly hurt but never say / you patched me up and sent me on my way


09. So Long, Lonesome ||| Explosions in the Sky
instrumental

10. War ||| Emmy the Great
a foot falls like an echo of a step i didn't take / and i see you coming in like you were never gone / they say that the winter
clears the drains / that time heals all things / and they said that the thought of you would fade / well i see nothing change
here in the world there is nothing more than your absence / now the sky is turning gray / now the birds have left the bay
now time is shrinking

Just finished watching CoE, and - wow. I could certainly use some music to help along the sifting-through-thoughts-and-emotions process.

DLing; thank you.

Great mix : I didn't know any of the bands but I discovered great songs !
Above all, there is a real "homogeneity" (not sure if the word is correct in english!^^ the word "consistency" may be better !) : this is not a bunch of songs put together, this is a real mix. The "crazy" The Running Goblin, the "vintage" Dark Night of The Soul... and all songs have this terrible side of sadness : I completely saw Torchwood in it ! <3

Oh, awesome! Fanmixes are a great way of discovering new artists/bands, I've found.

And comments like this mean a lot to me, truly; it's always great to hear that a mix looks like it hasn't just been thrown together, and that what I was trying to do comes across the right way once someone has given it a listen. I'm very pleased that this hit the right notes for you, thank you very much! :)

Ooooh, shiny fanmix! Taking because your fanmixes are awesome (your Ten & Martha one is still the best fanmix ever, as far as I'm concerned) and Torchwood is kind of okay too. ;D

Not gonna lie, I know pretty much zip about Torchwood other than that is has something to do with Doctor Who. But your cover art is gorgeous, and the choices look really interesting, so I'm taking this. :) Thanks!
