Awesome Music / How I Met Your Mother

  • The use of "Shake It Out" at the end of "No Pressure" as Ted has finally moved on from Robin and has made peace with the fact they won't get together.
  • The Mother's rendition of "La Vie En Rose" in "How Your Mother Met Me". After breaking up with her long term boyfriend and realizing that she finally let her lost love go, she still sits down and sings a song about looking at life through rose colored glasses.
  • The chorus of "Victoria" by The Kinks in "The Naked Truth" made the initial reappearance of Victoria feel HUGE.
  • Hi. One ticket to Farhampton, please.
  • Bloc Party's "This Modern Love" in the Season 1 finale when Ted and Robin finally became a couple and it became a Tear Jerker when Ted got home and found Marshall, sitting outside of the apartment and mournfully holding Lily's engagement ring.
  • While it was an otherwise controversial ending, the soft rendition of "Downtown Train" by Everything But The Girl is a wonderful way to underscore Ted and Tracy finally meeting for the first time.
  • Gus's rap in "Bedtime Stories", when Marshall is unable to find a suitable rhyme for "Canada" and looks to the next passenger for help.
