Season Three, Episode Four, “G’Day Melbourne”: “This Love is Over,” by Ray Lamontagne.

Season Three, Episode Three, “Crazy Whitefella Thinking”: “Personal Jesus,” by Richard Cheese. It’s a cover of a Depeche Mode song.

Season Three, Episode Two, “Don’t Be Ridiculous,”: The “Perfect Strangers” theme song (here’s a refresher)

Season Two: Iris DeMent’s “Let the Mysteries Be,”

Here’s Iris Dement’s full version of the song.

You may also recognize the song from elsewhere. It was played in the final credits to the final episode of Northern Exposure. “Let the Mystery Be” has also been covered by 10,000 Maniacs with David Byrne on MTV’s Unplugged.

And because I adore this song, here’s another version of “Let the Mystery Be” by DeMent on piano only.

Season One: “The Leftovers Theme,” by Jenerik Müziği.
