"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.
