How I Met Your Mother: The Musical Mega-Mix!

I’ve been wanting to make a HIMYM mix for a while now, and I think I’ve determined the core base of songs to include. Despite my uuber-fan status, I’m sure I’ve missed some, so please comment with suggested additions! I tried to limit it to songs that are actually discussed and/or performed by characters on the show, because otherwise I would be overwhelmed with trying to find the entire soundtrack. If you’re seeking that information, though, be sure to check out How I Met Your Mother Music, which was very helpful.

  • Hey Beautiful – The Solids (theme song)
  • We Rule The School – Belle & Sebastian (music Ted remembers from when he dated Natalie)
  • Summer Breeze – Seals & Crofts (Dr. O’Brien’s guilty pleasure song)
  • Tub Thumping – Chumbawumba (Marshall’s VDay mix for Lily that plays in her apartment/Chinese restaurant)
  • Voices – Cheap Trick (Ted attempts karaoke with this song in “The Pineapple Incident”)
  • You Give Love A Bad Name – Bon Jovi (1st on Barney’s get psyched mix!)*
  • Don’t Go Breakin’ My Heart – Elton John & Kiki Dee (Lily and Marshall’s karaoke song)
  • Good Feeling – Violent Femmes (Marshall and Lily’s official song)
  • I Am Woman – Helen Reddy (Radio request for Swarley)
  • I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers (The soundtrack to all adventures in Marshall’s Fiero!)
  • Here I Go Again – Whitesnake (Barney mentions when discussing Marshall’s bachelor party)
  • Alguien Soy Yo (Somebody’s Me) – Enrique Iglesias (Gael)
  • Cats In The Cradle – Harry Chapin (Barney sings karaoke to this, alone, while holding the baby sock)
  • Sweet Home Alabama – Lynryd Skynyrd (one reason why woo girls go woo!)
  • Kokomo – The Beach Boys (plays when Ted & Barney are trying to serve drinks in 3 Days of Snow)
  • Murder Train – The Foreskins (this is the go-to soundtrack for all fight scenes now, I love it)
  • All By Myself – Eric Carmen (All By Ourselves played as Robin & Barney searched for couples friends)
  • Informer – Snow (Marshall references the lyrics in his letter to himself, written when he was 15)
