Downton Playlist

With the recent close of Season 2 of Downton Abbey on PBS, while eagerly awaiting Season 3, some of us have to fill our withdrawal with something. With some help from Spotify, I present my solution, the Downton Contemporary (more or less) Music Playlist.  Some of these are so on point you have to wonder if Julian Fellows was just listening to the radio and wrote down whatever he heard.  Sorry for any spoilers, but if you haven't seen it at this point, you are likely either categorically against it and shouldn't care or are being talked into it by friends who have probably already given away all the major plot points already.

UPDATE: Thanks to The Heart for discovering that Rachael Yamagata has, in fact written a song to an Edith. And with lyrics like "Oh Edith / you murder me / you murder me," the song could almost be sung by Mary. Well, not really. But we'll stick with it anyway.
