As with most relationship-centric episodes of Grey's Anatomy, there were more than a few scenes made more impactful by the songs in the background. On Season 9, Episode 3: “Love the One You’re With,” we heard several worth scoping out.
Below is the song list from the episode.
Artist: Icky Blossoms
Song: “Heat Lightning”
Album: Icky Blossoms
Scene: The plane crash survivors consider the airline company’s settlement offer.
How strange to feel this way
Play it cool, the fever
Everything that I have been dreaming of
So real, a woven tent appears before me
Heat lightning struck the sky, could only think of you as it was flashing by
Song: “What Could You Do?”
Album: You Can’t Win
Scene: Jackson (Jesse Williams), April (Sarah Drew), and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) perform hernia surgery.
Artist: Haley Reinhart featuring B.o.B.
Song: “Oh My!”
Album: Listen Up!
Scene: Bailey (Chandra Wilson) and Richard (James Pickens Jr.) in the hall, talking about April’s return.
Hot, hot heat between you and me
I'm burning up inside
You shock me with your ways
Ain't polite for me to say
Like a firecracker blowing up the sky
You don't know, you don't see
All the static electricity
And everytime you touch me right it's like
Oh, oh, oh, oh my
Artist: The Heavy
Song: “What Makes a Good Man?”
Album: The Glorious Dead
Scene: In the attendings’ lounge, when Meredith talks to Cristina (Sandra Oh), Bailey applies Post-its.
Ain't nothin' wrong with this chemistry
Ain't nothin' wrong with this blasphemy
And time tell that there's the pedigree
Experience is another one meant for me
Artist: Julia Stone
Song: “It’s All Okay”
Album: By the Horns
Scene: Jackson and April exchange looks; Alex’s (Justin Chambers) intern cries.
The story is different now, the records are playing in the living room
And you might say you're wounded, and I might say I'm hurt
But we knew the difference then between the fire and the earth
And we may say we're broken, we may say we're weak,
But we knew before we started, oh the secrets we would keep
Artist: Ryan Star
Song: “I Won’t Back Down”
Album: The America
Scene: Calzona cry in the bathroom.
Well, I won't back down
No, I won't back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won't back down
No, I stand my ground
Won't be turned around
And I'll keep this world from dragging me down
I'll stand my ground
I won't back down
