"Gossip Girl" to Feature Cool Pop Music

"Gossip Girl" to Feature Cool Pop Music

I seriously admire Alexandra Patsavas, the clever mind behind musical placement in hit shows "The OC" and "Grey's Anatomy." She's credited with launching the careers of many an indie band by using them on "The OC," and I've often felt that the music on "Grey's" is just the thing to seal in the poignancy of a scene.

Now, Patsavas is taking her gift for placing music to the CW's fall series "Gossip Girl," and this time, she's planning to do for pop music "what 'The OC' did for indie rock." Billboard has more:

As with "The OC" and "Grey's Anatomy," and other shows on the CW, music will feature heavily into the lives and plot lines of the main characters. The pilot episode of "Gossip Girl" spotlights music by Rihanna, the Mooney Suzuki, Hanson, Amy Winehouse, Angels & Airwaves and others.

"I'm relying on old favorites while exploring current pop music," Patsavas says. "And since the show revolves primarily around high school students in New York, we'll definitely be using some New York-based bands. But these kids listen to the radio, too," she adds. "So, there will be that music, too."

I've already called it with KT Tunstall's single "Hold On" which sounds like something that could easily fit into a "Gossip Girl" episode — I'm thinking by the third episode or so we'll have heard it. I have complete trust in this lady's skills, so I can't wait to see what she does for the music in "Gossip Girl"'s first season.

Yeah, they definately coul have casted someone better as Jenny,but hopefully she does the job well enough. BTW, did you hear that this TV show was actually supposed to be a movie staring to one and only Ms. Lindsey Lohan. I wonder if they dropped her like a hot potato because of all the crap she has going on...the girl is a mess!!!

Can't wait for September 19! It's Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf. The guys are okay looking, I guess (Check out the cast for the Gossip Girl TV Show. I'm kinda frustrated with the choice for Jenny, who's going to be played by Taylor Momsen. She was the cute young girl from The Grinch and she's so pretty and skinny with straight blond hair, whereas we know Jenny to be curly-haired and um, very blessed.

I LOVE the music she used in OC and Greys. I still remember Coldplay's Fix You at the end of the 3rd season (or was it the second, when Kirsten was in rehab??) and the Imogen Heap song from when Caleb died. SO GOOD! This has made me even more excited! I wish I had her job!
