Just wanted to say thank you very much for maintaining this site for all this time, it's been a great resource for such a great show. I know I'll still be coming here whenever I wonder what that good song I remember is, even if there won't be any more episodes (way to go CW, cancel the only good show on your network).

Thank your so much for all of the Veronica Mars information and trivia and especially for the music.

I first discovered Veronica Mars through my girlfriend, through a Salon article and through the fact that so many Buffy fans liked the show. Immediately afterward I discovered the "Mars Investigations" website, which finally convinced me to rent the first season and then buy it.

It was a great show at times, and I am sad to see it go. The last few moments of "The Bitch is Back" were heartbreaking.

I wrote a little about those last few moments at my LiveJournal weblog if you are interested. It's called 'Goodbye, Veronica Mars: A close look at the last moments of "Veronica Mars" and the Song that Closed the Show'

So this was the end? :( Episode 20 was the end? I really wanted for Veronica and Logan to get back together. What kind of an ending is that? :( Could it be that they left an open ending just in case? Pls? Pls? Pls? :)

I guess this is it.

(8)it's time to let go of everything we used to know(8)

do you realize how IMPORTANT an ending song can be?
"breathe me" by sia in SFU
"brighter discontent" in the season finale of Nip/tuck
or "life is a song" on the O.C.

well, i guess that's the case with "it never rains..."

Even though I only REALLY loved the first season, it's sad to say goodbye (and it happened the same with THE OC), but the MUSIC, the music was the biggest thing and it will be missed
(have you noticed that "grey's..." use a lot of the same music?)

Just wanted to say, your blog has been a tremendous help in putting together a unofficial soundtrack compilation.

Couldn't have done it without you.

If you want to save you from the trouble of doing it all by yourself, check the big public torrent sites.

You might just get lucky.

I finally got an iPod, and have enjoyed downloading VM music to it. If we can't have the show, at least we can have our own soundtrack. Alas, how can there be 8 million reality shows and yet VM was canceled? I'm still not over it, especially when I listen to the music.

Ditto to the other comments, excellent blog. There is another song in this episode just before Veronica breaks into the Kane house (when she is sitting in her car with camera in hand), "Feist - My Moon My Man". Its just the first beat of the song, but its a great song so i thought it should be added. Thanks again!

Instrumental sample playing in the background while VM breaks into Kane estate is from Feist's My Moon My Man.

I have started watching Veronica Mars on soapnet and was wondering what song is playing for that commerical.

Love love love Veronica Mars. It's definitely up there with Buffy and my few other all time favorites. The genius of VM was not the music (even though it was very good) or at some spots it was also not the writing. The characters were the strength of the show, and I'd love to see an ensemble be that great and show that much heart again. Rob Thomas did another great ensemble show, Party Down, which had a lot of VM cast on it, but Veronica Mars was a perfect moment in time. At least it lives on in my DVD player and on Soapnet... I miss good TV.
