Trailer / Intro to About Schuyler Falls - text-based online soap opera
by Kira Lerner
The opening theme (2001 - 2012) for ASF. "Hell's Bells," by Dennis M. Reed.
Sting & Last Exit - I Burn For You
A song envisioned during almost all my obsessed romantic pairings, such as Ian/Danielle, Jonnie/Vanessa, Tristan/...any of his obsessions.
Fred Astaire - Let's Face The Music And Dance
During Tristan's murder trial, he heard this song in a nightmare of seeing his dead loved ones prior to being hanged for Camilla's death.
|Moon Over Bourbon Street|
An homage to the "Assetato di Sangue" storyline, in particular seen from Jonnie's viewpoint after he's infected by the disease.
|"MOONLIGHT SERENADE" BY GLENN MILLER|
Played during Rena and Greg's heated dance at the Crystal Ball, and the soundtrack to their first kiss.
|RESCUED - Drew Sarich|
The theme of a self-loathing lover feeling gratified by his/her partner's mistake--now no longer the only flawed one in the relationship--is pure ASF.
Sting - Fortress Around your Heart (live)
A wounded heart encased in a self-protective shield: works for Tristan, Olivia, Beth, Clark...
Sarah Vaughan - My funny Valentine
Another thematic song, particularly apt for Rena or Beth. Loving someone insecure about their worth.
|Autumn in New York|
Though about NYC, this reminds me of the drive and train trip up the Hudson each fall going to school in Albany; a major influence over ASF's setting.
|Sting - Until|
Lovely new song that sounds like a timeless classic beautifully fits the romantic pair of Mike and Martina.
Bach - Cello Suite No.1 i-Prelude
Played by Julie during Laurie's processional prior to her marriage to Victor.
Billy Joel - Pressure (Official Video)
by Billy Joel
Heck, this fits almost everyone in ASF. Ross, Clark, Jonnie, Jem... So many people living under the gun, real or imagined.
A song for Beth, if only Tristan knew how she suffers. One of the most touching songs about depression ever written.
En Prière - Stéphane Bordèse, Gabriel Fauré - Kathleen Battle
Sung for Camilla O'Brien's funeral. Gorgeous, delicate piece for a religious young woman who died way too early.
|Miss Otis regrets by Ella Fitzgerald|
Frank listens to this as he passes Boondoggles in the first episode, where his beloved Cami will die in only hours. Bleakly ironic song chosen by Cassie.
Diana Krall - I ve got You Under My Skin
Wanted to find a male singer, but only Krall's version is slow rather than bouncy. Alex taunts Martina by singing this during a dance at the Crystal Ball.
