There’s so much to love about Roswell, New Mexico. Whether it’s the fact that every episode fails to disappoint, the complex and diverse characters that populate this realistic world, or the emotional reactions the show forces from us on the weekly.
But perhaps an underrated element of Roswell, New Mexico‘s allure is the soundtrack that guides the story each and every week.
I’ve always made it clear that the eclectic mix of ’90s and modern music breathes unique life into this show. Especially the ’90s music, which pays homage to the original series.
This week’s episode brought us some more ’90s tunes and introduced us to some new music.
Let’s take a look at all of the music that appeared in Roswell, New Mexico‘s second episode this season, “Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space.”
“Wonderwall” – Oasis
This song plays at the opening of the episode as Rosa listens to music while using Max’s laptop and asks Liz about her funeral. The song continues as the group sets up the bunker lab, when Rosa sneaks out to spray paint a stencil on The Crashdown, and when Maria puts up flyers about her missing mother.
“REDNEK” – Gord Bamford
This song plays when Michael gets into a fight with Wyatt Long.
“High and Dry” – Radiohead
This song is playing when Liz restarts her experiment, as well as when Alex drops by the hospital to see his dad, just in time to see him have a seizure. This song continues with Max asking Rosa to pull his body out of the pod, when Isobel ingests some of the alien toxin, and Rosa starts drinking to silence Max.
“Trouble” – Hamish Anderson
This song plays when Maria finds Michael hanging around outside The Wild Pony. Then, as we saw, sparks flew.
Roswell, New Mexico airs Mondays at 9/8c on The CW.
