    Maybe This Christmas

    Something Pretty
    When Seth stands on top of the coffee cart to declare his love for Summer. πŸ’™
  4. β€’
    Hallelujah
    Everything is terrible. Theresa drives Ryan away from Marissa (again), Marissa stares out from her new prison/mansion, and Seth sails away. ⛡️

    Goodnight and Go
    The fab four has all found love- with someone outside the group. 😯 (Bonus: Olivia Wilde as Alex teaches Seth how to punch!)

    Fix You
    Caleb dies, Kirsten gets the news, and in one heartbreaking swipe she grabs a vodka bottle and you know her alcoholism is beyond Sandy's help. πŸ˜ͺ

    Song For No One
    Amidst tragedy and uncertainty, the fab four take a day to just be kids again, sailing and running around on a beach and making fun of each other. Just as it should be. β˜€οΈ

    Forever Young
    Ryan and Marissa's song! They dance to it and it's wonderful. Later the song is played again over their breakup and it's just cruel and heartbreaking. πŸ’”

    Speeding Cars
    A wistful soundtrack to the group's graduation, masterfully edited for maximum smiling through tears at our little graduates! πŸŽ“

    Hello Sunshine
    Seth and Summer's unofficial song. The best time it played was during a season 4 airport reunion when Old Summer finally returns to Seth. All. The. Feelings. β˜€οΈ

    Life Is A Song
    It's sweet and melancholy and satisfying and the PERFECT soundtrack to showing what's to come of our main characters. A farewell to Newport. ☺️
