    Honestly, I think I loved 90% of the songs on the show. And I have those 90% downloaded too, probably. I love how, esp in s1, it gave that California vibe just by the music. The music coordinator(?) did a very good job. Sadly, it kind of lost that CA vibe in s3-s4 I thought.

    It seems to me that there should be an OC Mix 7:"the ones we missed", cos there's lots of songs that are amazing, but not on the mixes.

    Favourites would have to be:
    - Paint the Silence
    - We Used to be friends
    - Dice
    - If You Leave - Nada Surf
    - Maybe I'm Amazed - Jem
    - A Lack of Color - Death Cab
    - It's too late - Evermore
    - Publish my love - Rouge Wave
    - Your Ex-lover is dead - Stars
    - Hide and Seek - Imogen Heap
    - The End's Not Near - Band of Horses

    Favourites that should be on OC Mix 7:
    1. Hallelujah - Leonard Cohen
    2. Fix You - Coldplay
    3. For The Widows In Paradise, For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti - Surfjan Stevens (played at Johnny's Funeral)
    4. Into Dust - Mazzy Star (Marissa's OD in TJ)
    5. Speeding Cars - Imogen Heap (Graduation)
    6. Hallelujah - Imogen Heap
    7. Running up that Hill - Placebo (S4 premiere)

    Cool. Welcome to the show and the boards I presume. Are you enjoying it so far? Some people say that the 4th is worse than 3rd and some say the 4th is better, so hope you enjoy it going into it.

    NP. =) And yeah, I do miss the show sometimes, but then again Im also one of those people who thought s4 was worse (sorry to bring you down when you havent seen it yet) so unless they changed some things and it wasnt a repeat of s4 just with different things going on, then I still wouldnt be sad about it.

    A few songs I really like from the OC:

    - Halleluja
    - Forever Young
    - the theme: California
    - Maybe I'm amazed
    - Wonderwall
    - That's what friends are for

    The last song was just perfect for that scene!
