If there’s one thing The Umbrella Academy is known for, it’s the amazing soundtrack. Here’s a look at some of the best songs that we see from Season 2’s soundtrack, along with the official (or not so official) music videos that go along with them.
There will be minor spoilers in this story for Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy in terms of songs and which episodes they appear in.
Episode 2’s Fight Scene with Diego
There’s a fight scene with Diego in Episode 2 that you’re likely going to want to watch again and again. The choreography is wonderful and it fits in perfectly with the song: “I’m a Man” by Spencer Davis Group with Steve Winwood.
The lyrics include the chorus: “I’m a man, yes I am and I can’t help but love you so.” Another line says: “All engrossed in mental chatter, Showing where your mind is at, While relating to each other, How strong the love can be…”
Here they are singing the song in 2017:
Episode 3’s End Credits ‘Golden Brown’ Song
The musical montage at the end of Episode 3 is also a beauty to watch. The song is “Golden Brown” by The Stranglers.
The lyrics begin: “Golden brown, texture like sun, lays me down, with my mind she runs, throughout the night, no need to fight, never a frown with golden brown.”
Here’s a video showing The Stranglers performing the song.
Episode 4 Had Three Musical Montages
Episode 4 of The Umbrella Academy had three good music montages. First, there was the opening song with a flashback involving Lila. The song for that flashback was Marty Robbins’ “Love Is Blue.”
Here’s a video for the song. The lyrics for the song begin: “Blue, blue, my world is blue. Blue is my world since I’m without you.”
Later in the episode, we get a montage with Klaus by Styx called “Renegade.”
Then there was a fight montage to a song by Kiss called “I Was Made for Lovin’ You.”
Episode 5 Had Three Great Montages
Episode 5 had one of my favorite montages of The Umbrella Academy, maybe right next to the Dance montage from Season 1. This was the Pogo montage using Peter Schilling’s “Major Tom (Coming Home).” Here’s the song’s official music video:
Another really good montage came later in the episode, and it was a fight song involving Five to The Interrupters’ version of “Bad Guy.”
Finally, the end credits song was in Swedish by My Kullsvik, singing “Hello.”
Here’s Adele’s English version:
Episode 6’s End Credits Song
If you liked the end credits song for Episode 6, it was The Dead South’s “In Hell I’ll Be in Good Company.” Here’s the group’s official music video for the song.
Episode 7’s Montage with Klaus
Not to give too much away in case you’re reading this before seeing the episode, but that montage with Klaus in Episode 7 was really fun to watch. The montage was done to Baio’s “Sister of Pearl.”
Five’s Montage in Episode 9 Was Fun
Five had two enjoyable montages in Season 2. His Episode 9 montage was a lot of fun and reminded me a bit of his previous fight song montage. This one was done to Generation X’s “Dancing with Myself.”
In case this confused you because you think “Dancing with Myself” was by Billy Idol, don’t worry. It was. Billy Idol got his start in the group Generation X.
Episode 10 Featured the Song ‘Wicked Games’
Episode 10 featured the song “Wicked Games” by Parra for Cuva ft. Anna Naklab.
Here’s the official music video for the song.
