In our celebration of music week here at the Winchester Family Business, what better to showcase some of the greater moments of Classic Rock and Supernatural than a Top Ten list! Except it’s top 15, because when dealing with 195 episodes of material, there’s no way to widdle it down.
In order to keep this list to fifteen, as I’ve done with other lists, a set of parameters was required. The song has to play a significant role in a particular scene, like it’s a major character, and the scene isn’t memorable without it. There’s no opening “The Road So Far” montages included here (which is why “Carry On, Wayward Son” is notably absent). You will notice there’s a definite skew toward older seasons than newer ones since music in the budget became a real issue around season three.
Now that the preliminaries are out of the way, here’s my list of Top Fifteen Scenes in Supernatural Classic Rock, in order of awesomeness (least to best).
15. Goodbye Stranger – “Goodbye Stranger”
This is really only here because I felt obligated to pick something from seasons 7 or 8. Since Supertramp’s “Breakfast in America” never left my record player back in 1979 (aging myself!), it wins by default.
