The Music of ‘One Tree Hill’: When the Melodic ‘Stars’ Aligned

The music of “One Tree Hill” was addictive from day one; throughout the first season and into the second, these songs came to be more significant to fans. As I always say: the new music became just as important to us as the new episode was.

A few episodes into the second season OTH took a different direction with the songs on their show after bringing on a relatively new singer — but an unknown actor — Tyler Hilton as the wise-cracking Chris Keller. The character of Haley (played by Bethany Joy Galeotti, née Lenz) was no longer who we found out — halfway through season one — was just ‘a girl who just liked to sing’.

Oh no, Haley became ‘a singer’. [READ MORE]

The Music of “One Tree Hill”: The Daring Move

When I think back on music from “One Tree Hill” history, I could probably fill up on tunes from season one alone. So many songs used that year held meaning to the memorable moments on the show as well as to me and to my sister — who watched OTH alongside me since day one. It was her idea to even start our website, so you can partially thank her for OTH-Music.com even existing.

My sister told me I couldn’t take a look back on the music and not include the song that accompanied that first kiss between Nathan and Haley. Yep, Naley is the longest running couple in Tree Hill and quite frankly, I think they may be one of the longest running couples on primetime television.

They never actually broke up…. in nine seasons! [READ MORE]

The Music of “One Tree Hill”: An Everlasting Musical Moment

Every song selected for an episode of “One Tree Hill” plays a major role, but just like the scenes of an episode lead up to the grand last few moments, every song leads to the finale tune — also known as the “CODA”. If you don’t know what the “Coda” is, it’s the Italian term for “tail.” In music, it’s the tail end, the final movement… the end of the musical piece. On One Tree Hill, as well as any other television series, it’s the final song in the episode.

CODA’s are usually the songs that stand out the most for us because, outside of an occasional montage of scenes in various episodes, it’s the song that draws all of the scenes together. Sometimes words between the characters aren’t even spoken, we’ll just see a medley of how their day is ending in Tree Hill.

When I think of the CODA songs that have stood out the most to me, I’m instantly drawn to our first winter hiatus in the first season when the song “Re-Offender” by Travis closed out the show. [READ MORE]

The Music of “One Tree Hill”: It all started with a song…

There is no “One Tree Hill” fan like the OTH music fan; someone with the ear to pick up the tone, melody, and feel of a song as it softy plays behind the dialogue you can’t miss a second of. It’s the fans like them, those so invested in this show, that I believe have kept the series running for as long as it has. The best part of all is that I think all fans of the show are OTH music fans — and that’s why OTH-Music.com was created.

The opening moment of the show is what I want to put focus on — because from the first second… we were caught up with both.

It was the song “Drift” by Forty Foot Echo that opened the series as Nathan Scott tried to impress his father Dan during a Tree Hill Ravens game and Peyton Sawyer, ever the musical junkie, nearly ran down a jogging Lucas Scott with her car as she tried to change a CD. [READ MORE]

V Sevani 'Take You To The Moon'You may remember V Sevani from the boy band NLT, the former Interscope recording group that Fanvasion introduced you to back in 2007 (4-1-1 On the Hot New Group, NLT!). Members of the band have gone their separate ways — Travis Garland is recording an album, Justin Thorne is the new group One Call, and Kevin McHale stars as Artie on the hit TV series GLEE. This brings me back to V Sevani who has also been consistently working on his solo album as well as working on various film projects.

V just dropped the music video for his pop/R&B single "Take You To The Moon" and we highly recommend you checking it out below!
