Dexter comes home, hears the Make your own kind of music song, then sees the dead kid and dramatic melody starts playing. How is it called?

Dead kid...episode 8. Which season are you referring to? – Ankit Sharma Aug 22 '13 at 5:57
Im guessing hes referring to Zac from the season 8 episode "Are we there yet?" – Travis Aug 22 '13 at 7:57
@Travis ohh...that's a spoiler for me ;) – Ankit Sharma Aug 26 '13 at 12:03
@evening Don't do that. Spoilers are absolutely no problem in question bodies and the title isn't a spoiler anyway. Adding a "[SPOILER]" to question titles is highly discouraged. Ankit wasn't refering to the question being a spoiler but to Travis's comment. What was more of a confusion was probably the use of "episode" instead of "season", which if used properly would have stopped Ankit from reading the question at all. But I'm not acquainted enough with Dexter to change that "episode" to "season" in the title. Feel free to do this if this was what you actually meant. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 26 '13 at 12:16
@AnkitSharma Forget what I said, you're probably right given that episode 8 was the newest at the time of the question and has the title that Travis named in his comment. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 26 '13 at 12:51

The track is actually 'Argentina - Daniel Licht' which is Track 10 on Dexter - Season 7 (Music From The Original Series). Listen from around 30-35 seconds in and you'll recognise it within about 10 seconds! Find it here: or

The "Make your own kind of music song" is Make Your Own Kind of Music performed by Mama Cass (A.K.A Cass Elliot). I believe the song playing when Dexter is throwing Zach's body into the water is a never before, or at least rarely played part of the Dexter Blood Theme by Daniel Licht.

Wait, do you mean the one that's playing when he throws the body in the water? If so, I think that's part of normal blood theme music they play in the background of a lot of episodes. – druciferre Aug 22 '13 at 1:37
I don't think they had ever played that song ever before... – evening Aug 22 '13 at 9:09
When they write a song for television, they don't always play the whole song. They usually only play the same part of it over and over again. I believe you heard a new portion of the song. – druciferre Aug 23 '13 at 0:45
