    not only is the best music moment ever used in TWD not in the choices above — but it’s the best use of music ive ever EVER seen in any TV series. When they show the flashback of The Governor in season 4 episode 6 – The Last Pale Light in the West by Ben Nichols — Chills every time.

    “The Last Pale Light in the West” by Ben Nichols

    ‘Be Not So Fearful’ was very fitting on the approach to Terminus (or perhaps no so… If that makes sense). Regardless, nice cover by A.C. Newman and was a great scene. +1 on that from me! 🙂

    Now on my YouTube, the most viewed one is The Regulator but my personal favorite, I think, is Up The Wolves ’cause there’s gonna be a party when the wolf comes home. Honorable mentions are Last Pale Light in the West and Lead Me Home, which was played in “Clear” as Rick, Carl and Michonne drive back to the prison. I think Warm Shadow and You Are The Wilderness added an amazing atmosphere to what was going on at the time in the show too.

    Really disappointed that The Last Pale Light in the West wasn’t on the poll. Used when the Governor is wandering aimlessly, after the fallout of the season 3 finale. That scene and that song are so very good.

    Runner ups would be Civilian in season 2 and Oats in the Water from season 4.

    Wasn’t in an episode, but Kari Kimmel’s “Black” from the season 3 comic con preview was epic I thought, with the whole “Welcome to Woodbury” before it started, and later Rick saying “This prison is ours, we took it. We spilled blood!” Never forget how psyched I was for that season to start.

    Voxhaul Broadcast “You are the Wilderness” This plays I think 2nd to last episode in season 3 when they reveal that Andrea is locked up in The Governors Torture Chamber. Great song!

    The Nebraska episode. When Rick shot those men it was very John Wayne and Dirty Harry. Clutch by the Regulator played for that scene. It was a very powerful scene. Rick knew then that was how he had to protect himself and the group from others.

    “be good” like it was said before, pretty song and fit the situation. emily even put it on her album. her version is too sickeningly sweet. the original had a touch of grit and the version she sang to daryl was de-tuned and beautiful. she should have followed suit on the album.

    Love The Mountain Goats but The Walking Dead ….isn’t that some silly zombie show that appeals to the lowest common denominator.

    NO BRAINER and I can’t believe it wasn’t a choice. “You Are The Wilderness” by Voxhaul Broadcast revealing Andrea being held captive by the Gov. in episode 314 Prey.

    I absolutely loved Blackbird Song by Lee DeWyze. What a haunting melody; it really was a perfect fit for the show.

    How can Blackbird Song in the opening scene of the Alone episode not make you feel the emotions. It is beautiful and perfect.

  51. JW Coombs June 6, 2014 at 3:23 pm - Reply

    I voted for “Blackbird Song”; because that song, coupled with Gilliard’s superb acting made for an unforgettable TWD scene. So much feels in that scene; and not a word spoken.

    But my personal favorite would have to be, hands down the song “Space Junk” by Wang Chung; played during the ending credits of the pilot episode as the camera pans up from the tank, and herd of walkers feasting on Rick’s horse, until it’s high above the city you can truly get your first look at the grand scale and magnitude of the devastation.

    Season 3, Episode 12 “Lead Me Home” by Jamie N Commons for sure!! The tone of the song goes so well with TWD world and it was used at the perfect time.

    It plays during the ride back to the prison from Morgan’s place with Michonne driving with Rick in shotgun at the end of “Clear”

    Blackbird Song for sure. Was kinda hoping we’d see songs from the Telltale Game because In The Pines at the end of Season 2 Episode 2 was awesome!
