How I Met Your Mother was an exception to this, however. Here was a laugh-track sitcom that heavily relied on music to tell its story. What we do know is that these songs were carefully cherry-picked, and always seemed to bolster the scene they were accompanying.
How I Met Your Mother never failed to use music to great effect, as these examples will make clear. Since fans tend to have varying tastes, this list has been updated to deliver more songs that will wind up being a favorite to indulge in. Marshall made a collage of the double date he and Lily had with Barney and Robin, with this song accompanying the pictures. This song has always been a timeless classic, and listening to it played on a ukulele is something else.
It can be interpreted as a heartbreaking ballad or a song that evokes some measure of hope The Mother had for better days to come. This track always springs up whenever an over-the-top fight takes place in an episode. Due to the recurring nature of the song, How I Met Your Mother fans grew to expect it whenever a fight was about to begin between the characters.
They were usually right, as this upbeat track explodes whenever things are about to go down. They even gave us a whole feature-length song to demonstrate!
The song also became a recurring aspect of the show and was even played by Robin in the finale episode for her wedding. The final moments of the episode had the gang all head to the roof to take the leap over to the other building, and the song was perfect for building up our excitement to see these people letting go of apprehension and just leaving things to fate. Speaking of leaving things behind, this episode had Ted letting go of his anger toward Stella for ditching him before their wedding. Before the concluding minutes, Ted envisioned himself tearing into Stella for betraying him, only to see her with her family and realizing they were always meant to be together.
The song was featured right from the very opening seconds of the season into the very last moments. It was used to stir up the wonder in fans over whose wedding it was supposed to be in the flash-forward, where we saw a nervous Ted. How I Met Your Mother was the hip, cool new show on the scene in after Friends ended, and the newer generation responded very well to songs being utilized to play up the story. On the other end, we had Ted, who was basking in happiness after finally getting together with Robin - two very modern styles of romance wrapped up in one.
The winning shot, though, was the sight of the street where Ted walked being full of women holding yellow umbrellas, a reminder to the fans that Robin was just one of the pit stops Ted had to go through before finally meeting The Mother. The thunderous chorus and its accompanying lyrics complemented the scene that unfolded, as we saw Future Ted waiting on a train platform, all while The Mother stepped out of a taxi and stood only a short distance away from him.
Nobody could have envisioned an entire dance being featured on the show, especially not one that was so elaborate. Here, Barney imagined a whole musical-styled song to go with his love for suits, and we were brought along for the ride.
Anybody who heard this song would have been inclined to dump their girlfriend and go off in pursuit of suits instead. What made this moment so beautiful was the song that seamlessly went with all the times the couple had during their marriage and completed the effect by accompanying us when we saw Ted and The Mother meet for the first time in Had the show ended right then and there, How I Met Your Mother could have pleased the fans with its finale; unfortunately, fans had the disastrous ending to follow.
This takes nothing away from "Downtown Train," though, the song that made us believe in happy endings for those few minutes. Apart from freelance writing, Saim is a lifestyle blogger, co-owning the blog 3 States Apart.
