What are the best songs you discovered from a TV show?
Something that can elevate a good show to a great show is a killer soundtrack. Some shows are simply synonymous with great soundtracks (Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, The OC, The Wonder Years, Fargo) thanks to the superb work done by music supervisors. I recently noticed just how many songs I've downloaded that I discovered because TV show, and since I'm always on the hunt for great music, both new and old, I wanna know some of the tunes you found. Here are some of the songs that I love, and the shows that introduced me to them:
"The Same Mistakes" by the Echo Friendly, featured on Girls. (Say what you will about that show, it had an AMAZING soundtrack.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frDUZGd3vwM
"Killed Myself When I Was Young" by A.A. Bondy, featured on Friday Night Lights. (Another show with absolutely flawless music choices.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eepe6pyyxss
"Vienna" by Ultravox, featured on The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. (Honestly, pretty embarrassing it took a Ryan Murphy show for me to discover a song from 1980.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SoYNWPlZ8JU
