‘The Vampire Diaries’ Soundtrack: “All My Children”
Tonight marked the airing of yet another fantastic episode of The Vampire Diaries, which involved the usual amount of deaths, twists, and dramatic glances—which is to say, about the same level of BOOM-POW-WHAT?!? excitement as a season finale of any ordinary show. This awesomeness was of course accompanied by TVD‘s perfect-as-usual soundtrack.
Tonight’s episode featured two songs that caught my ear:
“Poison & Wine” by The Civil Wars – This song played during the opening sequence, when Elena was trying to call Stefan, but he didn’t pick up. The male/female duet was perfect for the alternating shots of Elena and Stefan, and the haunting chorus of “I don’t love you but I always will” is basically the Stelena national anthem.
“Guarded” by Kevin Daniel – TVD loves to end episodes with slow, piano-heavy songs that make you want to cry for no apparent reason, and this week was no exception. This was playing as Elena read Elijah’s letter to her about how much he “admires her compassion,” which I think is a nice way of saying he approves of all the terrible decisions she’s made to protect her family and friends.
What did you guys think of the songs from tonight’s Vampire Diaries? Anything worth downloading? How adorable was Klaus this week? Will Alaric ever find a nice, not-crazy girl to settle down with?
