Music Monday: Orange is the New Black and Sharon Van Etten’s “You Know Me Well”

20 Jun

Happy Monday or not depending on where you are in your Orange is the New Black watch. I’m going to keep things on the spoiler free side as much as possible and as with previous seasons OITNB is another in contention for “Best Closing Creditssong choices. I’ve talked at length about songs that end an episode and how important this selection can be when dictating the emotional stakes of the action it plays over or that has preceded it.

The tone can be set in this moment and can leave you feeling uplifted, but that’s not what we’re doing this morning. Sorry.

This Music Monday selection is in a devastating vein harking back to the equally heartbreaking and amazing Dum Dum Girls “Coming Down” from season 3 and Sharon Van Etten’s “You Know Me Well” closes out episode 6. This is when the season really kicks into gear; bringing together old threads with the overall themes of this season. Themes which go deeper and darker than previous years and I don’t want to say too much more other than whoa this is an A+ pick.

Be right back, just gonna continue sobbing all over my keyboard thanks to this song/show.
