We’re so professional.
The types of music a person listens to can tell you a lot about them. By going through a character’s iPod, we can get to the depths of their very soul: what makes them tick, what makes them happy, what inspires them.
Before getting into any deep analysis, we wanted to start our first show off explaining the show concept and discussing why music on television is so important.
TV has often been lauded as the new radio because it offers a way for new artists to breakthrough. Canadian artist Feist was pretty well unknown until her catchy “1,2,3,4” was featured on an Apple iPod Nano commercial. The song became a Top 10 hit and Feist got 4 Grammy nominations. Countless other examples can be listed. Could Apple be the next Alan Freed? Are commercials the new top 40?
We’ll leave those questions to you. All we know is that television provides some pretty awesome music sometimes. Our favorite shows have the best soundtracks. Music can elevate a scene until it is something iconic. The chemistry of a well-performed scene with the perfect musical accompaniment can make a powerfully memorable moment. Who doesn’t automatically picture Izzie crying over Sandy’s death in Grey’s Anatomy 2006 season finale when Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” is playing?
