    I’m so happy about this! Especially since you were able to relate the Postal Service to OITNB. Also, Do it Like a Dude is an amazing song!

    Love this list, love it. When I first heard I Don’t Give A Fuck in the closing credits of episode 4 (?) I thought I had died and gone to f-bomb heaven.

    I listened to this mix yesterday at work and it’s awesome but when it got to “Bad Girls” I thought it had ended and 8tracks had moved onto an Orphan Black mix, lol.

    Since I’ve watched and loved the show, my new obsession has been getting more and more people to love the show. I’m keeping a tally. 8 so far. I WILL NOT STOP!

    I was compelled to scan the song selections for at least one Joan Jett contribution. She’s there so I may proceed with streaming.

    For a show that uses very little soundtrack compared to most, when they DO use music it is always so spot on. Love it. Riese’s additions are perfect too. Going to put this in my iTunes as “pri$on playlist” and pray my family never sees it.

    i’m really fascinated with how well that taystee gif works with every song. like even loretta lynn and rilo kiley? how does that work?

    This is completely off-topic, but I just realized that Kate Mulgrew is the same person who played Captain Janeway from Star Trek Voyager. That was trippy. 😛
