Touch of Grey

I’m not one to toot my own horn, but I totally called this. Back in November I had a post about Au Revoir Simone called "Brooklyn Band Most Likely to Have a Song in an Episode of Grey’s Anatomy." And six months later… they did, in Part One of the season finale. (The episode was titled "17 Seconds," which like every episode, is named after a song.)  I may have missed on the actual song (I predicted "Back in Time" but they used "Through the Backyards"), but I feel vindicated nonetheless. Maybe "vindicated" is the wrong word, but you know what I mean. And I’m happy for the ARS girls — they’re a good band and deserve the recognition.

When I wrote that post in November I was halfway joking about the kind of music typically heard on Grey’s Anatomy, but the show has turned into one of the most musically adventurous on TV.

  1. The music is one of the few things I like about that show. I don't understand why everyone likes this program. I am assuming the problem is with me since I am in the minority. It's a very popular show. Do you know what Chalets song they used? I was about to put up some Chalets. I still have up the Mark McAdam song "Grey's Anatomy" used a long time ago. Anyway, I understand what the appeal of the show is, I guess. It just doesn't do it for me.
