Looking, HBO’s original series about my life three gay friends in San Francisco, returns for its second season this Sunday. So what sort of trouble will our favorite (but flawed) TV homos get into in Looking season 2? As you may remember, last summer HBO sent out a casting call for “nude-willing” extras to portray young gay beach-goers and recreate a “Bear beach hangout” and an “LGBT Forest Party” for the first episode set in Russian River. The more recent trailer has Jonathan Groff and co. taking molly in the woods, so what more do we need to know, really?

Just like in the first season, the music featured on the show in season 2 is on fleek (I don’t actually really now what that means, is that ok?). The music supervisors have included songs from Hercules & Love Affair and Junior Boys again, along with new music from Caribou, the Juan MacLean and a cover of Ce Ce Peniston’s “Finally” by Ghost Cherry that will blow your socks off. Listen for yourself! The full tracklist is below the music widget. (Oh, and in case you missed it, music from Looking season 1 can be heard here and here).

Hercules & Love Affair — “Blind” (Frankie Knuckes Remix)
Tiga — “(Far From) Home (The Speed of Sexor Reprise)”
Sister Sledge — “Lost in Music” (Bernard Edwards & Nile Rodgers 1984 Remix)
Caribou — “Can’t Do Without You”
Death in the Afternoon — “Let’s Talk”
Pet Shop Boys — “Thursday” (Feat. Example)
Junior Boys — “This Is Goodbye”
Syclops — “Jump Bugs”
THE THE — “This Is the Day”
Body Language — “Running”
Girls — “Summertime”
Cherry Ghost — “Finally” (Time and Space Machine Re-Edit)
The Horrors — “So Now You Know”
Kim Ann Foxman — “Creature” (Faze Action Remix)
The Juan Maclean — “A Place Called Space”
Ce Ce Peniston — “Finally”

    Thanks for this. Great series and music to boot. In Episode 4 of Season 2, there’s a scene featuring Augustin and Eddie in the latter’s home and a mug which says I ‘heart’ anal (!). There’s a catchy tune playing in the background. All I can hear is the (female?) singer going “My hair…” like a chorus. What is it do you know? Thanks and cheers.
