The CW has been famous for bringing us plenty of teen drama in the form of hit TV shows (Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, etc.), and even for introducing us to some science fiction drama (like Supernatural). Both formulas came together to bring us The Vampire Diaries, based the on novel series by L.J. Smith.
The Vampire Diaries Season 2 saw the plot thicken as the love triangle between Elena, Stefan and Damon grew stronger as new monsters were introduced to the show. That’s right, you guessed it: werewolves, “super” vampires, and doppelgangers. With just the right amount of teenage angst mixed with supernatural creatures, Season 2 was a fan favorite.
What continues to set The Vampire Diaries from the majority of its CW counterparts is the heavy doses of weekly indie music featured on the show. Season 2 definitely did not disappoint in this department, with songs from the masters of new blues The Black Keys, electronic wonderkids The xx, and the indie/hip-hop mashup super-group Broken Bells. There were so many quality songs that I had trouble deciding what to feature on this playlist!
Apparently, vampires listen to some great music. Don’t take my word for it though, check out the songs below and the playlist for Season 1 here.
