With a show as dramatic and complicated as ‘Euphoria,’ a perfect soundtrack is needed. Whether it be the haunting melody behind Nate Jacobs’ psychotic exploits or Cassie’s dark and seductive betrayal of her best friend, there is a song to accompany every mood, every moment, good or bad.
Euphoria is credited for having one of the most diverse and most strong of soundtracks for a TV show currently airing. It has classic rock, party music, and even unreleased songs from some of our favorite artists. The combination of different genres, songs, and artists makes the soundtrack as chaotically beautiful as the show itself.
Season 2 Complete Euphoria Soundtrack Full of Emotion and Drama
The show airs a new episode every Sunday on HBO and each episode features anywhere from 15 to 30 tracks. There is quite literally a new song playing every 2-4 minutes, we doubt we could find a moment of silence even if we wanted to. It is all done eloquently and thoroughly which adds to the quality and importance of music even more.
A comprehensive list of all the songs played was a necessary must and we’ve taken any song that has played, whether on a car radio, during one of their infamous parties or even just in the grocery store. Labrinth is known to create the scores for ‘Euphoria’ so his songs are left out as they comprise the largest chunk. A few new songs of his will be dropping throughout the season, however.

Labrinth’s Role in Euphoria and the Music Behind It
Most commonly named on this list is Labrinth. He has been the headlining artist for the show since Season 1 and his songs still ring true to the characters and stories. Labrinth is known primarily for composing ‘Still Don’t Know my Name’ and ‘All For Us’ which were fan favorites in Season 1. He’s a singer-songwriter whose works all contribute to the intensity and drama of the show, whether it be to weigh your heart down with the same sadness Rue feels or to envigorate you when Maddy is dancing and partying, he perfectly conveys every emotion.
An example from Season 2, is a powerful scene showing Rue’s addictive and self-destructive nature when it comes to substance abuse. She is spiraling once again and Labrinth performs a never-before-seen original that he composed for ‘Euphoria.’ He sings it in a church full of people and fans alike who have been waiting for the song and who fell in love with the heartfelt ballad.

The lyrics for ‘I’m Tired’ are all about Rue’s journey with drugs. When Labrinth sings, “Hey Lord, you know I’m fighting, I’m sure this world is done with me. Hey Lord, you know it’s true. Now the tide is rolling in, I ain’t tryin’ to win. Let it take me, I’ll be on my way. How long can I stay in a place that cannot contain me?” he speaks on Rue’s constant battle with herself and the forces around her when it comes to abusing drugs. She’s trying, pushing against the figurative tide but it’s slowly drowning and overwhelming her.
The finale of season 2 will air on the 27th of February and we cannot wait to see what happens and what songs will accompany what is sure to be a surprising and dramatic ending.
Stream ‘Euphoria’ every Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO or HBO Max
