TV soundtracks

Got a few hits today for people searching for "Scrubs" and The Fray's "How to Save a Life." I think it's interesting that my two favorite medical shows ("Scrubs" and "Grey's Anatomy"--yes, "ER" is now in the number three spot) have played the same non-top-40 song. At first, I was thinking this was the second time this has happened. But then I remembered that whereas "Scrubs" played Keane's "Everybody's Changing," "G.A" used "Somewhere Only We Know." Close but no cigar.

(Of course, "ER" does get points for playing a different song by The Fray, "Over My Head.")

Give House a try and ER will fall to 4th. Then flip on Discovery Health and see if ER makes the top 30.

I watched season 1 of Grey's Anatomy on DVD, and the subtitles indicated a different Tegan and Sara song almost every episode. So if Scrubs has even used them once, there you go.

As for Keane, I'm fond of "We Might as Well Be Strangers" (used on Smallville), because the singer sounds like Ewan McGregor.

Neel, this site is my guide. Lots of Tegan and Sara listed.

I know, I know. I should watch House. Hugh Laurie rules.

Maybe you can help me out with a Scrubs song. Went and found a link for the songs on S2 but never did actually find the song. I think the title of the episode was 'my sex buddy' or the one right before it. Scene is at the end of the episode where JD and Elliot are getting it on and the song is ska-tempo with the lyrics like ' i don't want you, i just need you' or something like that. It has been troubling me for a fortnight now that I still have been unable to figure it out.

I don't know how you can tell all those piano-slogging, wimpy-angst-vocal Keane songs apart (ducks head).

I can't wait until Sunday!! How long has it been since they've aired a new episode of Grey's -- 2 weeks, 3 weeks?! Too long!! If it weren't for Boston Legal staying current, I don't know what I would have done!!
