I started watching the American version of the TV show Life on Mars last night. It was good. Whether it will be as good as its British predecessor, which my husband and I loved so much we actually felt disloyal watching this one, remains to be seen.
But it's a great reason to talk about music in television shows. Both versions of the show use this song by David Bowie to great effect:
I'd never heard this song before. Now, thanks to this show, it's been stuck in my head for months. Months!! Right now, even!!
What songs snuck into your life through the television, for good or ill?
(And don't get me started on what Gossip Girl's music producer has done to me...)
