The Vampire Diaries Songs: Music From Season 4, Episode 20, “The Originals”
We didn’t think we could get any more excited by the Vampire Diaries backdoor pilot for The Originals, but as always, the music took the storyline to a whole new level! Hats (and fangs) off to TVD’s master of music, Chris Mollere.
Song: “My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark (Light Em Up)” Artist: Fall Out Boy Music Moment: Episode promo Lyrics: B-B-B-Be careful making wishes in the dark, dark / Can't be sure when they've hit their mark, mark / And besides in the mean, mean time / I'm just dreaming of tearing you apart / I'm in the de-details with the devil / So now the world can never get me on my level / I just gotta get you out of the cage / I'm a young lover's rage / Gonna need a spark to ignite / My songs know what you did in the dark / So light 'em up, up, up / Light 'em up, up, up / Light 'em up, up, up / I'm on fire
Song: “Revolution” Artist: Dr. John Music Moment: First shots of New Orleans; Hayley talks to Jane-Anne Lyrics: Blind eyes of justice, deaf ears of power / Dumb lose our money / Left us in a desperate hour / Economy / Driving me out of my sanity / Rebellious, Revolution / Is it the final solution? / Final Solution / Angels surrender, killed in their tracks / Babies, women raped / Leaders on their backs / Religious delusions / Stoned confusions / Prepare your Revolution / Is this the final solution?
Song: “How You Like Me Now” Artist: The Heavy Music Moment: Marcel performs at the karaoke bar Lyrics: Now there was a time / When you loved me so / I could have been wrong / But now you needed to know / See, I've been a bad, bad, bad, bad man / And I'm in deep, Yes I am / I found a brand new love for this man / And I can't wait till you see / I can't wait / So how you like me now / How you like me now / How you like me now / How you like me now
Song: “How” Artist: The Neighbourhood Music Moment: Klaus walks into the club looking for Marcel Lyrics: How could you question God's existence / When you question God himself? / Why would you ask for God's assistance / If you wouldn't take the help? / If you're gone, then I need you / If you're gone, then how is any of this real? / When I'm on, I believe you / When I'm not, my knees don't even seem to feel / How could you tell me that I'm great / When they chew me up, spit me out, pissed on me? / Why would you tell me that it's fate / When they laughed at me, every day, in my face?
Song: “New Cannonball Blues” Artist: TV on the Radio Music Moment: Klaus confronts Marcel at the party Lyrics: Hey girls, hey boys, no, don't mind the noise / It's just the sound of being dragged ahead / It's just a pornographic annulationship / As we watch the spider's web eat itself / All this death above, extinguishing / All that you've ever known / Turn your touch screens off and start harvesting / In the seeds that your parents sew / It's got me singing blues that hit you like a cannonball / Loud enough to break your bones / But it was written in blood before they wrote it in stone / So sing it with me like it's your own
Song: “Terrible Love” Artist: The National Music Moment: Klaus and Camille watch the artist work Lyrics: It's a terrible love / That I'm walking with spiders / It's a terrible love that I'm walking with / It's a terrible love / That I'm walking with spiders / It's a terrible love that I'm walking with / It's quiet company / And I can't fall asleep / Without a little help / It takes awhile / To settle down / My ship of hopes / Wait til the past leaks out / It takes an ocean not to break / It takes an ocean not to break / Company / It's quite a company
