One of the finer points of HBO 24/7 Flyers-Rangers has been the accompanying soundtrack, whether it's because the songs are good or because the lyrics happen to fit the story perfectly. But one of the problems is that apparently, those in post-production at HBO are total hipsters, and half of the songs are completely outside of the mainstream.
Actually, that's not a problem. It's a good thing. And we have the Internet, so we can find those tunes and bring them to you. It also helps that HBO has a running list of songs played during the series on their website, making this whole search much, much easier.
Below, we've compiled the songs into a convenient YouTube playlist for your enjoyment. If you like the songs, we'd encourage you to support the artists and buy them on iTunes or some such equivalent. That way, you can carry them around on your fancy handheld computer or whatever. Much better than lugging around a YouTube playlist, right?
You can also find the complete list of songs below the jump as well. Episode 3 isn't listed yet, but we'll be updating with those once HBO lists them. We'd compile it ourselves but A) we're lazy and B) we don't want to miss anything.
You can also get the playlist on Spotify, although it doesn't include every single song. Most, but not all.
