One of the many things I love about The Vampire Diaries is the music the show features. I have to give major props to the person responsible for choosing the music, because every song fits each scene perfectly. Lucky for us music fans, we can now buy The Vampire Diaries soundtrack! It came out this week and it has an excellent collection of powerful and emotional songs straight from the show.

You can listen to a snippet of each song on the Amazon page here.
This obviously isn’t a complete list of songs played on the show, but it’s all that they put on the CD. If you’re like me and are curious about all of the music featured on The Vampire Diaries, there is a Facebook page dedicated to posting every song played during every episode (click the “Notes” section). It is conveniently organized by episode, so if there was one song you absolutely loved in a particular episode you can go right to that page and find it.
So, which of the songs on the soundtrack is your favorite? Are there any songs featured in the show that you wish would have been put on the soundtrack? Personally, my favorite song on the soundtrack is Cut by Plumb.
