The Vampire Diaries Songs: Music From Season 3, Episode 8, “Ordinary People”
We learned a lot of lore in The Vampire Diaries Season 3, Episode 8, “Ordinary People.” Not only is the Original family anything but commonplace, so too was the music chosen by TVD’s music maestro Chris Mollere. Only he could choose a song to bridge between Rebekah’s tears and a magical Delena moment.
Artist: Foster the People Song: “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls)” Music moment: Alaric takes photos, Elena tries to stab Damon Lyrics: Walk little walk Small talk big thoughts Gonna tell them all just what I want That Street two streets I see you and me Hanging on the empty of swings 'Count high low don't worry my eyes are closed I’m a superman and it's my show One shoe two gonna kick with My new shoes I’m going to kick until I need new shoes Yeah , Yeah I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop Talking to me Stop don't stop don't stop Giving me things I run they run everybody run run And we're all just having fun Sleigh ride boat ride piggy back ride Im going to show them all how I can ride One two three close your eyes and count to four I like to hide behind my bedroom door Crayon on the wall Color on the wall Until I've broken every law I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop Talking to me Stop don't stop don't stop Giving me things Stop, don't stop, don't stop Laughing about it Stop don't stop don't stop
Artist: Nadine Coyle Song: “Put Your Hands Up” Music moment: Rebekah looks for a homecoming dress Lyrics: Hello, there’s something that you wanna tell me And I know, you always look at me so naughty Don’t go, cause I’m gonna keep you company We’ll be, the masterpiece Stop me boy you can’t keep up Move along, don’t hurt yourself I’ll be kind to you-oo-oo-oo We feel our best And I’m done with stress Let’s get together… Put your hands up Put your, put your hands up Put your hands up Put your, put your hands up We’re in it for life So I’m saying this twice Let’s get together… Put your hands up Put your, put your hands up Put your hands up Put your, put your hands up You’re alright I hold you close when we’re up dancin’ I’m surprised You didn’t think that you could trust me Just hold tight And let the movement take over ya So-oh-oh, so-oh-oh Don’t stop me boy you can’t keep up Just move along, don’t hurt yourself I’ll be kind to you-ooo-ooo (I’ll be ki-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-i-iiiiiiiiind)
Artist: James Vincent McMorrow Song: “We Don’t Eat” Music moment: Rebekah cries, Damon and Elena lie in bed and talk Lyrics: If this is redemption, why do I bother at all There's nothing to mention, and nothing has changed Still I'd rather be working at something, than praying for the rain So I wander on, till someone else is saved I moved to the coast, under a mountain Swam in the ocean, slept on my own At dawn I would watch the sun cut ribbons through the bay I'd remember all the things my mother wrote That we don't eat until your father's at the table We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust Never once has any man I've met been able to love So if I were you, I'd have a little trust Two thousand years, I've been in that water Two thousand years, sunk like a stone Desperately reaching for nets That the fishermen have thrown Trying to find, a little bit of hope Me I was holding, all of my secrets soft and hid Pages were folded, then there was nothing at all So if in the future I might need myself a savior I'll remember what was written on that wall That we don't eat until your father's at the table We don't drink until the devil's turned to dust Never once has any man I've met been able to love So if I were you, I'd have a little trust
