Welcome to My TV Sang to Me! The goal here is to dive into the use of different song choices and musical cues on television shows all across the dial (and sometimes even live programming). I’ve always had a ear for when a song really clicks in the moment or just stands out, and here I either dive into the reasons why some songs work so perfectly or simply give a nod to music that jumped out at me for whatever reason. Not every song on TV has a secret meaning or an affect on the story, but when they do I discuss the action on the show in depth in order to more completely understand why the choice was made.
Here I usually only discuss the shows I watch unless I hear of a great music cue on another show and decide to take a look. Also, every show isn’t discussed every week. If New Girl ends with a great song one week that doesn’t necessarily mean every week it warrants a post. It’s more of a case by case basis. From time to time there will be posts on older shows that had great reputations for music choices or theme songs that fit so well within a show’s world you can’t imagine they weren’t written just for that purpose (or were they?).
