Several of the early seasons of The Walking Dead contained so absolutely awesome background/incidental music. Not songs that were written for the show by Bear McCreary, but music by other artists that just perfectly fit moments in the show.
I always had Shazam at the ready on my phone on Sunday nights so I could find and save the songs I liked, which given the size of my TWD playlist was pretty much all of them.
The last few seasons didn’t have nearly as much in the way of not-written-for-the -show music, which is a bit of a bummer. Besides adding another layer to the feel of the show, I feel like I’ve lost a source of some great music and artists.
Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy.
