Every other Wednesday, I share a playlist of songs tangentially related to a single game or series. Songs about alien sex for Mass Effect, world leaders for Civilization, and so on. Make requests to @USPodcast on Twitter.

Life is Strange is becoming a personal contender for game of the year. Its slightly off take on America, similar to Alan Wake and Deadly Premonition, and its layered takes on high-school character tropes are deeply charming. This episode of Unoriginal Soundtracks features punk, hip hop, and soul about the events and characters of Life Is Strange episode two, and contains a bigger spoiler than usual for the show.


Tracklist

I Can't Make It On Time -- Ramones

Somebody Put Something In My Drink -- Children Of Bodom

Pop The Glock -- Uffie

Photographic -- Freezepop

It's My Party -- Lesley Gore

Drive-In -- The Beach Boys

Bad Moon Rising -- Creedence Clearwater Revival
