Luke: Wait. You want to operate on Noah today?
Reid: I want to be drinking a beer back in Texas, but I’m prepared to operate.
Luke: But he just had lunch. You — you can’t eat and then go under anesthesia.
Reid: Really? I hadn’t heard that.

LuRe Background Music

UPDATED, 17 Oct: Added the music from June 30th when Reid is drinking alone at Yo’s.

UPDATED, 11 Oct: I just realized that the songs for the Dallas bar scene are mostly recognizable…and there are three of them! They were similar enough so it didn’t really occur to me until I tried to figure out what they are. I also added lyrics for all the songs.

I’m not sure if this will apply to Luke and Reid or not as I don’t recall a lot of background music (and not much screentime either). But the Otalia fanbase put together an awesome listing of music used in their scenes.

Click here to see what I have in mind.

Otalia had the benefit of both a longer relationship (over a year, I think), more episodes once they got going, and a lot more background music with lyrics. Then again, they never got a real on-screen kiss (the ambush "Jane Jane" kiss doesn’t really count), so maybe there won’t be as many options for LuRe.  Ones I know so far:

  • April 22nd (Dallas, Day 2 at the Western Bar) – Eight Second Ride | Jake Owen (playing as they walk in)

    [spoiler name=lyrics]Come on
    I said, "Hey girl, what’s your name?
    Haven’t I seen you before?
    I recognize them dark green eyes
    When you walked through the door"

    "Are you alone, or are you with someone?"
    She said, "As a matter of fact I’m not"
    So I took her hand, that’s when it all began
    And we headed towards the parking lot

    And she said, "Hey boy, do you mind
    Taking me home tonight?
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high"

    I said, "Climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spitttin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight ’cause it’s gonna be wilder
    Than any eight second ride"

    We went ridin’ around rockin’ to the sound
    Of "A Country Boy Can Survive"
    And I knew then she was my kinda girl
    ‘Cause she was singin’ every single line

    Then she slid on over put my hand on her shoulder
    And I asked her what she wanted to do
    She said, "It really don’t matter where we go
    Just as long as I’m ridin’ with you"

    She said, "Hey boy, do you mind
    Taking me home tonight?
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high"

    I said, "Climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spitttin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight ’cause it’s gonna be wilder
    Than any eight second ride"

    So we headed out to Old Tobacco Road
    Put the tailgate down and we made love
    She said "A true country boy is hard to find
    But I found one wilder then any eight second ride"

    She said, "Hey boy, do you mind
    Taking me home tonight?
    ‘Cause I ain’t never seen a country boy
    With tires on his truck this high"

    I said, "Climb on up, but honey watch the cup
    That I’m spitttin’ my dip inside
    And hold on tight ’cause it’s gonna be wilder
    Than any eight second ride"

    Yeah, hold on tight because it’s gonna be wilder
    Than any eight second ride

  • April 22nd (Dallas, Day 2 at the Western Bar) – Crazy Town | Jason Aldean(plays as Luke rides the bull)

    [spoiler name=lyrics]Roll into town, step off the bus
    Shake off the where, you came from dust
    Grab you guitar, walk down the street
    Sign says Nashville Tennessee
    But I have found

    It’s a crazy town, full of neon dreams
    Everybody plays, everybody sings
    Hollywood with a touch of twang
    To be a star you gotta bang, bang, bang

    Bend those strings till the hank comes out
    Make all the drunk girls scream and shout
    We love it, we hate it, we’re all just trying to make it
    In this crazy town

    Pay your dues and you play for free
    And you pray for a honky tonk destiny
    You cut your teeth in the smokey bars
    And live off the tips from a pickle jar
    ‘Til find a cool new sound and you smile
    When the record man shoots you down

    It’s a crazy town, full of neon dreams
    Everybody plays, everybody sings
    Hollywood with a touch of twang
    To be a star you gotta bang, bang, bang

    Bend those strings till the hank comes out
    Make all the drunk girls scream and shout
    We love it, we hate it, we’re all just trying to make it
    In this crazy town

    One year they repossess your truck
    And the next you make a couple million bucks

    It’s a crazy town full of neon dreams
    Everybody plays, everybody sings
    Hollywood with a touch of twang
    To be a star you gotta

    Bend those strings till the hank comes out
    Make all the drunk girls scream and shout
    We love it, we hate it, we’re all just trying to make it
    We love it, we hate it, we all came here to make it
    In this crazy town, it’s a crazy town

  • April 22nd (Dallas, Day 2 at the Western Bar) – Hey Country | Montgomery Gentry (including the epic whoa-oh-oh-oh as Reid takes his turn on the bull)

    [spoiler name=lyrics]Shotguns, halter tops
    A Firebird from a chop shop
    A six pack of ice cold bud
    Screaming at the cop
    Hey, need another cold one
    Can’t ya see, can’t ya see
    What that woman been doing to me

    Well, that’s Jay in the backseat
    Marshall tucker singing on the CD
    He’s a hick, hey just like me

    Hey, country fresh off the farm
    Hey, country, look at that cowboy hat
    Hey, country, everybody sing
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Check it out, a small town, busted dreams
    Turned eighteen, joined the marines
    Get a crewcut, a tattoo
    Tell your girlfriend you’ll be right back
    Give or take a war or two
    Bootcamp, pushups
    You get a gun and ya muscle up
    I don’t know but I been told
    I don’t know but I’ve been told

    Hey, country fresh off the farm
    Hey, country, look at that cowboy hat
    Hey, country, everybody sing
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Two years an ex wife later
    I got a job patching up radiators
    And the occasional fuel pump
    Saving up, moving to the city
    There I was working on a Tuesday

    When a firebird showing his age
    Pulled up to the middle bay
    Whatta ya know, it’s Jay

    Hey, country fresh off the farm
    Hey, country, look at that cowboy hat
    Hey, country, everybody sing
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

  • May 20th (Luke and Reid at Yo’s) – This Ain’t Goodbye | Train

    [spoiler name=lyrics]You and I were friends from outer space
    Afraid to let go
    The only 2 who understood this place
    And as far as we know
    We were way before our time
    As bold as we were blind
    Just another perfect mistake
    Another bridge to take
    On the way of letting go,

    This ain’t goodbye
    This is just where love goes
    When words aren’t warm enough to keep away the cold
    This ain’t goodbye
    It’s not where our story ends
    But I know you can’t be mine, not the way you’ve always been
    As long as we’ve got time
    Then this ain’t goodbye
    Oh no, this ain’t goodbye

    We were stars up in the sunlit sky
    No one else could see
    Neither of us ever thought to ask why
    It wasn’t meant to be
    Maybe we were way too high
    To ever understand
    Maybe we were victims of all the foolish plans
    We began to devise

    But this ain’t goodbye
    This is just the way love goes
    When words aren’t warm enough to keep away the cold.
    This ain’t goodbye
    It’s not where our story ends
    But I know you can’t be mine
    Just like the way you’ve always been
    As long as we’ve got time,
    This ain’t goodbye,
    Oh no, this ain’t good bye, oh oh, oh no this ain’t goodbye
    This ain’t goodbye

    You and I were friends from outer space
    Afraid to let go
    The only two who understood this place
    And as far as we know

    This ain’t goodbye
    Oh no this ain’t goodbye
    This ain’t goodbye oh no this ain’t goodbye
    This ain’t goodbye
    It’s just the way love goes
    But where’s that woman now, to keep away the cold, oh no?
    This ain’t goodbye
    This isn’t where the story ends
    But I know you can’t be mine
    Like the way you’ve always been
    This ain’t goodbye

  • June 30th (Reid drinking alone at Yo’s talking to Bob on the phone) – Goodbye | Greg Laswell

    [spoiler name=lyrics]

    It was really nice to meet you, goodbye
    It’s high time, I quit wondering why
    Cause I have lost all that I can from my side
    And when you think of me again know I tried
    I tried
    Goodbye ( ooOOhh ) ( ooOOhh)

    Forgive me while I lay here
    But I have nowhere else to be
    I figure when I leave this time Its for keeps
    And when I say good morning next, Ill lie
    Ill lie
    This is goodbye ( ooOOhh ) ( ooOOhh )

    I’ll only lay the day
    I cant remember you at all
    And its not easy to say that day is already come and gone
    And all that remains is a place where you no longer are

    One day I wont regret this
    Oh how I want to believe that’s true
    Once I pick up my parts I broke on you
    Ill get used to the idea its not you
    Not you
    Goodbye

  • June 30th (Reid and Bob at Yo’s) – I haven’t been able to chase this one down yet, so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know!

  • June 30th (Luke and Reid talking at LilyPad) – If the Moon Fell Down | Chase Coy and Colbie Caillat

    [spoiler name=lyrics]Every time I see your smile
    It makes my heart beat fast
    And though it’s much too soon to tell
    I’m hoping this will last
    ’Cause I just always wanna have you right here by my side
    The future’s near but never certain
    At least stay here for just tonight

    I musta done something right
    To deserve you in my life
    I musta done something right
    Along the way

    I just can’t get you off my mind
    And why would I even try?
    ‘Cause even when I close my eyes
    I dream about you all the time
    I just always wanna have you right here by my side.
    The future’s near but never certain
    So please stay here for just tonight.

    I musta done something right
    To deserve you in my life
    I musta done something right
    Along the way

    And even if the moon fell down tonight
    There’d be nothing to worry about at all Because you make the whole world shine
    As long as you’re here everything will be alright

    I musta done something right
    To deserve you in my life
    I musta done something right
    Along the way
