Now there was a time when I used to watch Vampire Diaries, just for the music. And you have to take my word for it. Trust me, I think vampires are the grossest thing ever and am not a masochist in any way. So anyway, the show’s music overseer Chris Mollere does an amazing of picking the right songs as background for the scenes. It’s the kind of music that I adore – mellow and intense. And each episode used to feature no less than 5-6 songs and I have discovered many amazing but lesser-known songs and artists.
Ed Sheeran is everywhere these days. He’s awesome so deserves it all anyways. And this was the first song I’ve heard of him in an episode. I dunno what I like more – that guitar, his voice, or the lyrics. Lovely, powered to a million times.
My favourite bit? That segue at the 2:00 mark. (In this video, it’s at 1:37)
And for the record, I don’t watch Vampire Diaries anymore. I’ll miss the music but the show has become too preposterous to dedicate my time.
