What Never Was
A John Connor/Cameron EP

I actually made this mix right before the second season started airing but it wound up sitting around due to my dissatisfaction with the cover art. I think the mix has actually come to work well with S2, so I decided I might as well put it out there in honor of the new eps. I know some of these songs have been used on other TSCC mixes but the playlist is too set in my mind to change. ;) I tried to pick songs that fit the Terminator soundscape as established by Bear McCreary but you'll have to judge how well I did yourself! Enjoy!

01. Somewhere a Clock is Ticking
Snow Patrol
(John's POV on John/Cameron)

I've got this feeling that there's something that I missed
(I could do most anything to you...)
Don't you breathe
Don't you breathe
(I could do most anything to you...)

02. No Signs of Pain
Azure Ray
(John's POV on Cameron)

Grasping with my fingernails
As they tear through your skin
Leaving no signs of pain
No wounds to mend

I know I don't understand how weightless they must be
Without feeling

[Full Lyrics]

03. Metal Heart
Unknown Male Cover of Garbage
(John Connor)

I wish I had a metal heart
I could cross the line
I wish I was half as good
As you think I am

I wish I wasn't flesh and blood
I would not be scared
Bullets built with me in mind
Then I could be saved

Now that we know for sure they're telling lies
When they say no one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round

[Full Lyrics]

04. Humanoid
Dead Red Sea

05. Be What You Wanna Be
Sarah Fimm

I've been
Lost inside my mind and I forgot that I am free
I can be what I want to be

I will be
I can be
Be what I wanna be
I can exist
Within this reality
And be what I want to be

06. The Story of Us
Sarah Fimm
(Cameron's POV on John/Cameron)

Buildings and bridges
Connect all the dots
What's the cost of one man's life?
Watch the mystery unravel thread by thread
Watch it all go down in the end
What will become of what never was
It's the story of us

[Full Lyrics]

07. Yeah, I'm in Love with an Android
Say Hi
(John's POV on John/Cameron)

And, yeah, I'm in love with an android, but so what?
Stranger things have happened
Stranger things have been loved

Nice! I immediately downloaded the cover of Garbage's "Metal Heart" because I've always thought that song worked well for them, although I think I prefer Shirley Manson. Because she is awesome. Downloading the rest!

And I love the cover art. It's so subtle. Also, you should come post this to wiredtoyou.

ETA: Except you just did. So never mind.

Yeah, I prefer the Garbage version myself! But I figured I'd use a different version just to mix things up. Plus, I'm a sucker for having male voices for male characters and vice versa... even though I never manage stick to it.

Thank you! I spent so long staring and adding/subtracting things and reevaluating the cover art that I kind of lost perspective on the project. ...Although I might now like the back art better but I think that's because Summer is super hot. XD

Annnd I have to read all your fanfic now. I've totally been out of the fandom loop trying not to spoil myself.

Ooh, thanks for the feedback! It's always nice to hear that people listened. And liked! When I first heard that cover of "Metal Heart", I was so excited: "A dude singing Garbage? OMG it's so John Connor!"

And wow, thanks about the art too! When I think of TSCC icons, I think of you, so that means a lot. I had one of your J/C icons uploaded for a loong time. :)
