2 thoughts on “Rain Dogs Season 1 Soundtrack”

  1. In Episode 4 “Didion Hell”, what is the slow song sung with piano accompaniment as Shelby leaves the room after noticing the record was scratched. It opened with the line: “You tell me you can’t walk alone…”

When asking about what song is playing during a scene, please specify around what minute.
