After Coach Taylor and the Dillon Panthers win the state in this final episode of season 1, the team returns home. This is when this song, which is a famous cover plays and it signifies that importance and the spirit of high school football.

The song is also reprised during the end of the final Friday Night Lights season.
Artist: Brandi Carlile
Featured: Season 5, episode 13
This song plays during the series finale, where Matt proposes to Julie in front of the Alamo Freeze. This is another enchanting moment of the series in which the age of the characters, where they live and their future struggle does not matter. All that matters is that these two characters are perfect for one another. This musical moment expresses their entire relationship in the lyrics. This is a cover of a famous song by Bryan Adams.
Song: Hello Darlin’
Artist: Conway Twitty
Featured: Season 5, episode 13
In the series finale, the glimpses of the future of several characters of the show are run. Tyra Collette returns to Dillon after not being part of season 4. She stops by to meet her ex boyfriend and friend Tin Riggins. These two characters break up in one of the earliest episodes, but stay friends. Despite of all that they went through, the moments they share in the final episodes play out in a perfect manner. Viewers are left with the idea that the characters may meet again in life later. Tim and Tyra dance during this song in a bar, making this musical moment special.
Song: Talking to the dog
Featured: Season 4, episode 7
This high tempo punk song is the perfect introduction for Vince Howard, the star quarterback for the East Dillon Lions. When the song plays, Vince is shirtless, and wild eyed running away from the cops. Later, the song is reprised when the Lions start gathering steam. This time, it plays when Howard sprints down the field to score a winning touchdown.
Friday Night Lights is more special because of the amazing soundtrack and musical score. The musical moments make the entire series more memorable and more relatable. The lyrics of all the songs used syncs perfectly with the scenes, creating more impact.
It really is a quite difficult to conceive a realistic approach for a TV Show and then earn the sizeable audience that the show actually deserves. Same has been the case with Friday Night Lights; it had the exceptional realistic plot that included the deep exploration of central America and also some very sound characterization of the cast but still failed to achieve the targeted number of audience.
