Music From the O.C.: Mix 1

Posted on

Die-hard O.C. fans know the chemistry between lovebirds Marissa and Ryan has nothing on the lust inspired by Summer and emo-licious Seth. So it’s a tad disappointing that, with its heavy dose of light, electronica-infused rock (South, Doves), this first of four soundtracks would inspire only the lamest of make-out sessions.
