You go, Gossip Girl!
They only used three songs in "You've Got Yale," Gossip Girl's 16th episode of season two, but boy were they good ones. A doubling up of Cold War Kids awesomeness ("Mexican Dogs" and album opener, "Against Privacy"), along with an actual song called "The Double" by We Fell To Earth.
If you don't have Loyalty To Loyalty yet, but you enjoyed the Kids' last effort, what are you waiting for? The album may get too drawn out at times, and it may not have the same magic of Robbers And Cowards, but it's still worth a listen or a ton.
"Mexican Dogs," Cold War Kids
"The Double," We Fell To Earth
90210 brought the music goods as well in episode 14, "By Accident." With a couple of songs from the soulful rising star Jem, along with "That's Not My Name" by The Ting Tings, 90210 kept their show bopping along.
"That's Not My Name," The Ting Tings
"All The Things You Know," Blue Judy
"Keep It Simple," Delays
"Venn Diagram," Lisa Hannigan
"Oh Me," James Combs
"It's Amazing," Jem
"Bathaddak," Natacha Atlas
"Down To Earth," Jem
"Unlimited," Bosshouse Music
And finally, while we're on the subject of television...what did everyone think of LOST's premiere last night? Has the show gotten too sci-fi for you? Or are you sticking with it, through and through? Personally, I thought last night's episode was brilliant. Feel free to comment on your favorite music on television this week, along with what you thought of LOST!
