They say that music sets the mood, and in this week’s episode of Gossip Girl, the plot was very much dictated by the songs playing the background. The disco-themed ep featured music from old-school artists like Donna Summer, Kool and the Gang, and Chic. Joining the lineup were some up-and-comers including All Mankind, a group of Australian guys currently based in the UK.
Their song “Simple Desire” played during the scene when Max and Charlie/Ivy met for coffee. A great soundtrack for a little manipulation, blackmail and romance gone awry, yes? Check out some of the lyrics from the song below:
“A heart unsatisfied, walks on a wire
From the lover to the loved, blind as a fire
Warning signs are passed aside, fuel to the fire
A heart will come undone, by a simple desire”
Listen to “Simple Desire” and the other songs featured on “Rhodes to Perdition” on Spotify! Which one was your fave?
