Roswell Music - Season 2

Here is a list of music from Season 2 of Roswell by episode,
including a description of when the song was played.

These are the songs from the episodes as they originally aired.
When the DVDs were released there were some legal problems with rights to the songs,
so TPTB decided to replace most of the songs.

I haven't checked all of the songs, so there may be mistakes.
If anyone has additional info, please let me know.

***The DVD songs are different than the TV songs***
I've been getting a lot of questions about Roswell songs recently, I am guessing it is because there are so many newer fans
who never saw the show on TV. So I wanted to put an explanation here of why the songs might not be what you are expecting.

When the Roswell DVDs were released, the studio felt that using the original songs from the series would make the
DVDs too expensive. So they made the decision to replace a lot of the songs with ones from mostly unknown bands.
