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

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)

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
