We here at Bank Robber have been swept up in the angst and mystery of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. Did we (me) lose an entire weekend to it? Perhaps (Yes). Are we the target audience? Well, prolly not. But that doesn’t mean we weren’t losing sleep over how Clay could possibly be on those tapes! Don’t worry, we wont spoil it for you…
We can think of way more than 13 reasons why we loved this show, but we can’t help but focus in on the music (we are only human music licensors after all). Perhaps you weren’t keeping track but we had quite a few jams in this show, and we’d like to recall a few favorites. So settle in readers and welcome to your tape….
Remember the good old days (ep 2) when Hannah, Jessica and Alex had their daily coffee shop hangs and everyone’s biggest problem was too much caffeine? They were all so happy, and we were so happy about the great M83 being played over it:
Then the moment we waited for finally arrived at the end of episode 10 when Tony reveals to Clay that Tape 11 is his! The moment (and Tony’s hair) was even more intense set to Codeine’s cover of “Atmosphere” by Joy Division. Stream it here:
Ah, Justin and Jessica, or as we call them, Jussica… It all started so innocent and it all ended so dark, maybe it was his abs, its hard to say. This jam from Rogue Wave played over one of their last longing looks at each other (ep 13). Stream it here:
With no official word on a second season, I’m going to do a little music supervising over my own fan fiction for a potential second season: 13 More Reasons Why!? (Warning: Contains heavy spoilers from season 2!).
Just when Clay thinks he can begin to move on, he grabs his helmet ready for a long bike ride only to open his door to find….13. More. Tapes. He lets out a very long sigh and a major eye roll and slowly saunters back inside to order a cassette player off Amazon (Tony wanted his Walkman back):
See you all for season 3: How Many More Reasons Can There Possibly Be!?!….
