Five songs that remind me of a TV episode

Confession time, I have a secret Spotify playlist. When I am watching a TV programme I hear a song I like, I “Shazam” the song. The I add the song to my TV/Movies playlist on Spotify. So you might thing writing this post was easy, but actually it was pretty hard to narrow it down to five.

  1. 4 Non Blondes – What’s Up
    Sense8 – What’s Going On (S01E04)
    When this song was originally released I didn’t like it. It was overplayed on the radio, which might explain why I know all the words to the song! When I watched Sense8, just as I was getting to love all the characters in the show. The scene involving the song cemented my love for all the sensate.
  2. Bell Biv Davoe – Poison
    Scrubs  – My Half Acre (S05E09)
    So many episodes of Scrubs featured great tunes, sometimes the music was the perfect choose for the storyline. Like JD’s last day. Other times it was for comedic value. When Turk auditioned to join the The Cool Cats, he performed this hip hop classic.

    .
  3. Violent Femmes – Add It Up
    The 100 – Wanheda: Part 1 (S03E01)
    Originally, I remember singing this song with friends in my room at university – singing it at the top of our lungs! This scene that features Add it Up in The 100 is pretty similar, friends driving and singing, having fun! Being The 100, it also signals the calm before the storm.
  4. Blondies – One Way Or Another
    Veronica Mars – Clash of the Tritons (S01E12)
    During the first season, Veronica Mars investigates a secret society in her high school. Whilst following several suspected members of the society to a karaoke bar. Once there, they set up Veronica to force her to sing. Being Veronica Mars, she picks the Blondie classic “One Way Or Another” sending a message to the society.
  5. Julee Cruise – Falling
    Twin Peaks – Northwest Passage (S01E01)
    The Twin Peaks theme tune, is one of the more iconic themes. Whilst everyone is familiar with the instrumental version from the show. There is also a version with lyrics. Julee Cruise performed the song (and several others) in the pilot episode of the show. Even now when, I hear this song I am transported back to Washington State, with owls, cherry pie and coffee!
