This Is Us: Music from the Series
This Is Us: Music from the Series is available on September 15th. This is Us: The Complete First Season on DVD will be available on DVD three days earlier so fans can enjoy the show along with the music. The soundtrack features 20 songs curated by “This Is Us” Creator/Executive Producer Dan Fogelman and his team, music supervisor Jennifer Pyken and composer/musician Siddhartha Khosla.
Music from the series begins with “Death With Dignity” by Sufjan Stevens, which is the tone-setting music cue from the series’ debut episode. And, it concludes with “This Is Us Score Suite” by Khosla. Also included is a rare cover version of Peter Gabriel’s “Come Talk To Me” by Khosla’s critically acclaimed band Goldspot, which has been praised by Gabriel himself, and “We Can Always Come Back To This,” the original song composed by Khosla and Chris Pierce, performed by Brian Tyree Henry in Season 1’s pivotal “Memphis” episode.
Goldspot’s “Evergreen Cassette (Tape Mix)” draws on Khosla’s early childhood experience of living in India with his grandparents while his parents were in the U.S., working and attending graduate school. The only way he could communicate with his parents was being sent an evergreen-colored cassette tape by his mother, who would speak to him, sing songs and tell him stories.
From the writer and directors of Crazy, Stupid, Love, the team of Dan Fogelman, John Requa and Glenn Ficarra come together again for “This Is Us.”

I really love the songs included here. I did recognize some of them from the series, but others were new to me. My very favorite from all of these is You Can Call Me Al which is definitely one of my all time favorite songs. I love how upbeat and bouncy the song is. It makes me smile every time I hear it. My husband was thrilled to see that it included Can’t Find My Way Home by Blind Faith which is one of his favorites. Of course, Uptight by Stevie Wonder is a classic that everyone loves. The Wind was absolutely haunting, and I will be listening to that over and over again. Photograph reminded me of high school. I haven’t heard that in a long time but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is definitely a great collection of songs for anyone who enjoyed the show or music lovers in general.
