Riverdale’s soundtrack gives me eargasm!
I recently downloaded songs from the series’ episodes 1 & 2 and it’s already on repeat for three consecutive days. (And those are just songs from ep 1 & 2, imagine the whole season)
Here are my top ten favorite songs from the two episodes:
- No Stranger by Small Black (Ep. 1)Scene: When Archie went to Pop’s to go find Betty but found Jughead instead. Archie approaches Jughead and asks him if he could sit with him to which Jughead replies, “If you want”. The two talks about Jughead’s novel about the summer that had just passed and about the death of Jason Blossom, their conversation then transitions to Archie asking if Jason Blossom even lived his life to the fullest; if he even knows what he was doing to Jughead giving Archie advice to clear things off with Betty.
Thoughts: This is song just pure amazing…hands down. Listening to this song lifts my soul, (I don’t why, though).
2. Sa Riera by T.R.O. (Ep. 2)
Scene: When Archie and Veronica are walking home from Pop’s. The two discusses how they both ruined their friendship with Betty. Archie then tells Veronica how Betty tutored him when they were in second grade so that he wouldn’t be left a grade behind and that when he passed, he kissed Betty and proposed to her.
Thoughts: Can I just say that this song fits the scene perfectly? Plus the song itself is soothing and calmin.
3. Trouble by Cage the Elephant (Ep. 2)
Scene: Archie, Jughead, Betty and Veronica hanging out at Pop’s with Jughead’s voice over telling them how they looked like normal kids at that booth as Pop’s bright neon lights keeps the darkness at bay. The scene transitions to Archie going to Principal Weatherbee’s office to tell him about what he knows about what happened at July 4th but didn’t have the chance to. Principal Weatherbee and Sheriff Keller leaves the office to go to the Science room for Cheryl. Cheryl then confesses that she’s guilty about Jason’s case in front of her classmates, the two adults then takes her in and we hear Jughead’s voice over telling that the autopsy revealed that Jason didn’t die on July 4th but on July 11th.
