If there’s one thing we’re looking forward to about The Originals, it’s the fact that music supervisor Chris Mollere will be continuing his amazing work on the Vampire Diaries spin-off. You might be familiar with his work on Pretty Little Liars and TVD itself, so have no fear, the music will go along perfectly with what’s happening on The Originals.
Just before tonight’s episode — “House of the Rising Son” — Chris tweeted, “Two of my favorite bands open & close tonight's episode of The Originals! Thx so much to them and all the artists for sharing their tunes!” Knowing that made us so excited about tonight’s episode, and with Rebekah Mikaelson’s (Claire Holt) arrival in New Orleans, we were in for quite a wild ride.
We were even treated to a flashback to the 1800s, which revealed a lot about the OG family and their relationship with Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) — especially his relationship with sire Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan).
So while tonight’s episode bounced back and forth between the 1800s and present day NOLA, the music transported us everywhere. Check out the tunes from tonight’s episode of The Originals.
Artist: TV On The Radio
Scene: We get a look inside Marcel’s vampire lair, where they invite humans in to feed off of and then release them back in the public. Creepy!
Lyrics: I caught a glimpse of professional evil
on the day our poor hearts died.
I fell in love with professional evil
on the day you left my side.
Artist: Ryan Montbleau
Song: “Yeah Man”
Scene: Klaus and Marcel meet up and talk shop at the bar.
Lyrics: Have you ever needed someone to talk to
Cause you’re not sure what you want to do?
Artist: MS MR
Scene: Marcel confronts Klaus in a bar for not telling him Rebekah was back in town. Aww.
Lyrics: Didn't know what this would be
But I knew I didn't see
What you thought
You saw in me.
Artist: Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Scene: Klaus and Hayley bond and then Rebekah and Klaus team up to take Marcel down!
Lyrics: Fallen for a guy,
Fell down from the sky
Halo round his head
Feathers in our bed
In our bed, in our bed.
