Music Monday – Girls Season 4 Closing Credits Playlist

23 Mar

Girls uses music from the present and past; weaving the two together as is case with listening habits. Old music can be just as new to one person as it is nostalgic to another and just because something wasn’t released recently that feeling of discovery isn’t diminished. Last year the playlist I put together was from the season as a whole, this season I am instead concentrating on the closing credits.

The Sunday Night HBO half-hour shows have been killing it with their choice of music for these final moments including an amazing choice by Togetherness  – since this episode I have listened to Lily & Madeleine on a loop – and this playlist shows just how incredible Looking continues to be with their song selections.

Girls season 4Don’t worry there is no Desi and Marni on here and the tone of the closing music tends to be optimistic even when the events that have just preceded it aren’t always the case. A hint of melancholy can be heard in some of the tracks around mid-season when Hannah returned to New York to find Adam living with Mimi-Rose. Generally this is a pretty chilled out mix and one which is well suited to spring.

Sadly there are two credit songs not currently available on Spotify and both debuted on Girls this season; the first is St Vincent’s “Teenage Talk” appeared at the end of episode 8 “Tad & Loreen & Avi & Shanaz.”

The second played out during the final scene of the season finale with “Carry Me” by Family of the Year accompanying a rather surprising and very hopeful end to the year. When/if they appear on Spotify I will add them to the playlist.

*Updated* St Vincent is now on the playlist, also Family of the Year’s “Carry Me” is not on there yet and the video we originally posted from YouTube has been taken down.

We’ve tried to vary our Girls coverage this season including the discussion about faking everything, Fantasy Costuming with Rachel Antonoff and a Mimi-Rose pajama Wish List post.

And here is the season 4 closing credits playlist. It is short but sweet.
