Back in March 2017, a Netflix original took the internet by storm – I am talking about the show 13 Reasons Why. I’m sure if you were present on the internet at the time, you heard about it. I know I sure did.
I was in the middle of binge-watching The Good Place and Shadowhunters at the time. So I wasn’t able to watch it until recently. I was home alone all weekend, it was rainy, and I was feeling introverted. I watched the entire 13 episodes in about 36 hours.
Anyone who has seen the show might have mixed feelings about it, but this is not about the content. This is about the soundtrack. Because that’s one thing I can take away from this show for sure – the soundtrack was amazing. So whether you loved or hated the show, this is a list of my favorite songs from the show in order of how they appeared on the show.
13 Songs for 13 Reasons Why:
Young & Unafraid – The Moth & The Flame
High – Sir Sly
Kinetic – The Cinema
Into the Black* – The Chromatics
*This is actually a cover of a Neil Young and Crazy Horse song but a super low-key version.
Amused – Hunger
The Night We Met – Lord Huron*
*This is one of my favorite bands and I was so excited to hear them! Listen to this entire album and you’ll fall in love!
It All Feels Right – Washed Out
The Great Longing – Lost Under Heaven
Some Dark Places – JR JR
A 1000 Times – Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam
Rescue – Rogue Wave*
*Another one of my favorite bands. Their newest album is all covers and it’s amazing!
Sunburns – Ctznship
Bored – Billie Eilish
Only You – Selena Gomez
*Not really a favorite but it’s such an iconic song, a cover of Yaz, that I thought it was worth a mention.
This soundtrack is such a great mix of indie bands. These are only the top 13 songs but there are much more.
If you’re like me and pay attention to soundtracks in shows and movies, a great resource is a website called tunefind.com. It has pretty much every show or movie with a list of the songs played in the episode with a description of the scene! So put your Shazam away and bookmark that website because it’s amazing.
