...we all know many tv shows will end an episode with a montage set to some pop/rock tune - either popular or obscure....or slam into the closing credits with a cool 'story complimentary' track. So yesterday, I'm rooting around in my old cd boxes and come across 'Girlfriend' by Matthew Sweet.
I hadn't heard it in ages but man, it's a great cd.
And while listening to it, I decided almost any track could be used as one of 'those' cool songs to end an episode. But for which show? How about...
Big Love: either 'Holy War' or 'Divine Intervention' could work...perhaps. Or maybe...
Rescue Me: either 'Nothing Lasts' or Looking at the Sun'...
But that got me thinking that pretty much anything by the Waterboys could work for Leary's show. Which led to thinking about music for other shows:
Entourage: either 'Tumbling Dice' or 'Can't You Hear Me Knocking' by the Rolling Stones
Deadwood: an obscure accoustic/banjo cover of the Counting Crows 'Round Here'
The Soprano's: 'Locked In the Trunk of a Car' by Tragically Hip
And then I wasted a bunch of time trying to paste in those 30 second music samples of these songs that you can get off Amazon or wherever - with absolutely no luck. I do suck at computers.
At any rate, for a while it was fun....100% Fun (one of Matthew Sweet's followup's to 'Girlfriend')
Try it, you might like it.
Disclaimer: I apologize in advance if any of these shows have already used these songs and I just happened to miss it.
