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?

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
