There’s an interesting piece at Black Book Mag about which songs Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries used to create the mentality of Damon Salvatore.

Note: We’re excited and grateful that Ian Somerhalder, himself, has tweeted a link out to this piece. (This is the second time he has tweeted a link to Small Screen Scoop!) For new fans to this site, we hope you check out our popular Vampire Diaries Dialogue Panel Project, which will begin again when new episodes start up on The CW!  We have ongoing coverage for The Vampire Diaries all the time, because let’s face it, is there a better show to obsess about?

They did not include links to the songs via YouTube, so I’ve gone ahead and done that for you. And we’re starting out with my favorite song of the bunch:

Neon Indian – “6669 (I don’t know if you know)”

The Black Keys – The Next Girl

Deerhunter – Desire Lines

Gayngs – The Gaudy Side of Town

The Verve – History

Belle & Sebastian – “I Want the World to Stop.

Bright Eyes – Lover I Don’t Have to Love.

Cursive – The Recluse.
