Season 3 of Virgin River continues with the drama that we’ve been clasping onto since the first episode. They really take things to another level with this season featuring a funeral, a fire, a divorce, a hurricane and a new romance. The twists never let up, and we love it that way.
Some of the songs featured in this series are featured so faintly in the background, that it can be hard to decipher the song sometimes. Also, there are probably upwards of 50 songs in total featured across the season, so these are ones that play during prominent moments of the episodes. Here are some highlights of the songs featured throughout season 3.
“Powder Blue / Cascine Park” by Yumi Zouma
While Ricky and Lizzie are on the lake in Episode 1, Yumi Zouma’s “Powder Blue / Cascine Park” is playing. The song was released as the first track on their EP III in 2018. Borrowing elements popular in music in the ‘70s with modern alt-pop, the song perfectly suits the young couple’s budding relationship.
“Time After Time” by Phillip LaRue & The Wildwoods
During a scene that takes place in a bathtub, a cover of “Time After Time” by Phillip LaRue and The Wildwoods. Their rendition of the song is included on the album Virgin River (Music from the Netflix Series) released the someday as Season 3. Of course, we all know and love the original version by Cyndi Lauper, which she released in 1984 before it went on to be one of her greatest hits.
“Human” by Rag’N’Bone Man
Rag’n’Bone Man’s hit song “Human” plays while Brie and Dan dance together at the bar in Episode 4. The song was released in 2016 and serves as the title track from his debut album of the same name, which followed in 2017.
“Running Low” by SYML
SYML’s cover of “Running Low” by Shawn Mendes is featured in the series as Jack is seen leaving his house in Episode 7. SYML’s cover of the song is included on the album Virgin River (Music from the Netflix Series) released the same day as Season 3. Shawn Mendes originally released the song as a bonus track on the deluxe “Revisited” edition of his debut album Handwritten.
“Troubles” by The Brummies
In Episode 8, as Mel wakes up at her sister’s house while she’s visiting, The Brummies’ song “Troubles” plays over the scene. The song appears as the final track on their debut album, Eternal World, which was released in 2018.
“I Need Your Love” by Keane
This song also plays in Episode 8 while Jack reflects on memories that play in a montage reel. Keane released “I Need Your Love” on the album Cause and Effect in 2019.
“You Are A Memory” by Message to Bears
This song plays during a scene in Episode 8 that I will not be spoiling. Message to Bears released the electronic track on their album Maps in 2013.
“Soft Dark Nothing” by Lily Kershaw
During another spoiler scene that takes place during Episode 9, and that I also won’t be detailing, Lily Kershaw’s “Soft Dark Nothing” plays. The singer-songwriter released the song on her 2019 album, Arcadia.
“Drift Away” by Dobie Gray
Doc listens to the song on headphones with Lizzie in Episode 10, the season finale. Originally written, recorded, and released by John Henry Kurtz in 1972, it was later given to and released as a single by Dobie Gray in 1973. Gray’s version of the song went on to be a hit all around the world.
“Lose My Faith” by Gold Brother
It’s a major spoiler scene, and we’re in the finale at this point, so I won’t spoil anything. But the scene features the song “Lose My Faith” by Gold Brother, which was released in 2017.
