Buzz In: What TV Shows Have the Best Music?

Earlier this week, I mentioned Alexandra Patsavas. (She's the music supervisor from Grey's Anatomy, Gossip Girl, and The O.C., and she also worked on the New Moon soundtrack.) She's one of the best in the biz at picking out the perfect song — thanks to her, I still think of that scene on The O.C. when Marissa shoots Trey whenever I hear Imogen Heap's "Hide and Seek."

Bringing up Patsavas got me thinking about all the great music on TV. I admittedly own a Grey's soundtrack — OK, or two — and I'm always jotting down the names of the artists at the bottom ticker when I'm watching The Hills or The City. It's a great way to find little gems to download that might not pass my radar otherwise. So, I'd like to the pose this question to you: What TV show do you think has the best tunes?

(P.S. If you're a music lover, you might want to think about adding yourself to the Music Review Group in BuzzSugar Community!)

I have to go with One Tree Hill and Supernatural. I have consistently purchased OTH's tie in soundtracks from almost every season, and have discovered quite a few artists that I very much enjoy.

I love the music on Grey's Anatomy! They've played Tegan and Sara a bunch of times, and I love them, and I also discovered two new artists from the show. :)

One Tree Hill and The City have the best music. If it weren't for the music on these shows I probably wouldn't watch them.

The OC, definitely! I found so many new bands from that show. I also really have enjoyed the music on One Tree Hill.

The OC for sure! the music is great with the scenes. i agree with penguins268, Nada Surf's cover of "If You Leave" was awesome. So was Finley Quaye & William Orbit's "Dice" during the new year's countdown :)

The OC and Gossip Girl definitely tops my list, but Grey's Anatomy has amazing music as well.

Almost every episode of Private Practice gives me a new song to download, some of which isn't on iTunes for awhile, but they show up after people request. Fantastic!

what in the hell is going on with Jenny in that picture?!?!?! I like the music on Grey's and i hate to admit the Hills at least a few years ago haven't watched it for a long time. The GG music fits the show really well but I don't really listen to it outside of the show minus the last eps. and the repeatedly playing cobra starship

One Tree Hill has the best music. I love the songs they play, and I always discover new artists/cds that I love.
