Note


Something I've been thinking about adding to this song-flinging community for a while is TV soundtracks. The songs you hear in the shows you watch. I mean, how often have you not tuned into this-or-that TV show and at some point told yourself "wow, this song is snappin'" / "wow, horrible moment for this song" or the likewise? Sensitive for music & its timing as I am, I do it on an almost daily basis.

If this were to be done, I'd try to have the songs featured in the most recent episode of [insert show] up in this community the day, or two days after the actual episode aired.

But here lies the question(s): what show do you want me soundtracking?

Poll #1376435 Soundtracking [what] TV show?

I want this/these TV show soundtracked...

Chuck
0(0.0%)
Gossip Girl
2(7.7%)
Heroes
0(0.0%)
House
1(3.8%)
Lost
1(3.8%)
One Tree Hill
3(11.5%)
Reaper
0(0.0%)
Supernatural
1(3.8%)
90210
0(0.0%)
Other...
0(0.0%)
If there's an "other" show you really want me to post the soundtracking of, just post the name of the show in a comment and we'll tally 'em up.

Also, somewhen when I wasn't looking, we got over a 100 members! WOHOO! You are all sonorously awesome.

I chose LOST because the episodes feature so little music.

Fun fact: One year for her birthday, I made my fiancee a LOST mix, with songs chosen in honour of each character. True story!

Aaw, that's so sweet, about the song mix. I do it too for shows I really care about, whether it's putting them into different iTunes playlists or just sitting on a train and going all "hmm, this would fit into [insert character name]"... it just happens.

Tbh, one of my very dream jobs if I could choose to be anything is a music producer for television -- ie, the person that places music into TV shows & such. I know I'll never get it, but hey, one can dream, right?

For "other", I'd love to see some of the songs featured on CSI: Las Vegas and CSI: New York as well as Criminal Minds and Without a Trace. All of those shows have some great music in them, but you never know WHAT they're called. Or almost never. Once in a while I can recognize a band, say, "Oh, that's new, I've not heard that before." and go get it. Though, lol at what you said about the songs being totally inappropriate for when they're being played. Without a Trace is tops for that. I have that "Um... what are doing??" moment almost every time I watch that one when they have music.

That and I'm still annoyed they mispronounced Rainer Maria Rilke's name. Leave it to a word nerd to get irked by something like that. *fails*

Ooh, I thought about making Without A Trace one of the options but stupidly enough never did. But that's some good suggestions, all of which I'll keep in mind. I'll just give the vote a few days and then I'll display the results and how they'll be posted, etc.

And that damned inappropriate!moment thing... man, I was watching this show just a few weeks ago where, in the end, this guy appeared in the doorway with a rifle in his hands, searching for someone -- and they had some awful song with the lyrics "there's a man with a gun" playing in JUST that moment -- things like that represent EPIC!FAIL to me as far as TV shows goes. You don't want the music to literall translate everything that happens on screen; that's what you have eyes for.

Ooh, GRR at those mispronouncing idiods.

I voted for Supernatural and House because those are the only shows in the poll that I watch regularly. I also like Fringe and Lie To Me, but I forgot to enter them under "Other". Out of all of those, I think Supernatural has the best music. Did you see that "Eye of the Tiger" thing?

Also, I adore that icon. Is it shareable? :)

I have to agree with you. Though a personal favourite of mine is Chuck because of how many great, great songs they have in it and acually manage to never misfit a song and always make you really feel it, Supernatural is easily one of the best song-themed shows out there, if not the best. They know their genre and stick to it. They're IMO a great example.

The Eye of the Tiger thing KILLED ME DEAD. Omg, Jensen Ackles, I heart you. That was one of the best "blooper" things I've seen in a long time and from a show ever.

And sure, just go to my userpic profile here and scroll down (or do ctrl+f and search for "shotgun") and snab it from there; I didn't make it, so credit that person listed :)

Supernatural totally wins! And Jensen is hands down awesome! The show totally gave me a new love for a whole genre of music that I always thought was cool but you wouldn't see much on my ipod..Now guess what it's full of? :P

I have to admit that it was a bit of the same for me. I always loved AC/DC, though, but discovering other ones like Bad Company & the suchlike, it's just so GREAT when a show does that to you. Chuck constantly does the same to me, though not a specific genre, but more song gems overall.

I just love getting that feeling. Music is so important for a TV show IMO, it's silly.

Thanks :P I am indeed!

And you're so right! Music is so important to a show...it really is the cause for all the emotions and the like. Supernatural hit the nail on the head, so to speak :P I love getting that feeling you described too!

Definitely. I find that with SPN, they're unique in a way because they don't just play any music out there that's hip & hot, or just the best for the mood -- they choose exclusively from a specific genre, one they've really made their own. It's gone so far that if I hear a song they've used in any other show I'll be all PFFT SO THE WRONG SONG TO USE, SONG = SPN SONG, haha.

I haven't ever watched Chuck-I may have to give it a try over the summer, since I love well-used music in a show. Hmmm.

Sometimes I think Jensen and Jared must be aliens-how is it possible for two human beings to contain so much awesome? Then I realize I've been watching too much X-Files and I feel better.

Yay! *squee* Icon birthday present! *bounces* Thank you!

Ooh, a fellow X-Files fan! Aaw, I was watching a rerun just last night and thinking about how when other people were into things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my favourite show was the X-files. What does this mean for our brains, haha?

Oh shit, is it your birthday? If so, congrats!!

*nod* My friend A and I are working our way through it again-we've gotten into Season 6 now (I think we stopped in Season 5 when it was actually airing). We've watched all of Buffy, all of Angel, and the first season of Sliders as well.

It means we are intelligent and have a great interest in the unexplained (and possibly Mulder in a Speedo). :)

Yep, thanks! I turn 30 tomorrow.

I actually did watch X-Files throughout the whole damned thing, but I should have stopped during season 5. From there, it kind of went downhill, without the 'kind of'.

YAY CONGRATS, belatedly! :D

Yeah, it kind of jumped the shark a bit.

Thanks! :)

I'm surprised that so many is voting House -- not because they don't play great music on it, because they do (some devil is so much love) but because I didn't know how active the show's fans were! I'm glad to see it, though. I love the show.

Something tells me I made a bit of a mistake not including Grey's into the actual selection poll...
