This Is Us: If You Like the Show, You'll Love the Soundtrack

We've fallen deeply, truly, and madly in love with This Is Us. The characters are relatable, the acting is on point, and the twists just keep coming. One of the best things about NBC's show, however, is how seamlessly it integrates music from both eras in which it takes place. The first half of season one has included great songs, and we've compiled them here for you. Fair warning that just hearing the music might make you cry, but if you're willing to take your chances, it's worth it.
