    I'm curious if any one else has any thoughts. I'm going with "Young Folks" by Peter, Bjorn and John:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48hcp-zDpg4

    I've already heard it on Gossip Girl (first moments of the pilot), Dirty Sexy Money (in the pilot), Big Bang Theory (in the ads and in the pilot I believe) and then again last night on Journeyman.

    I know shows don't know what music other shows are using, but I haven't been this annoyed since Prison Break used Massive Attack in their climatic sequence in the first season -- except its the same piece of music that is fairly well known as the theme song to another Fox series, House.

    apparently the song played for the previews of the CSI:Las Vegas season opener was used in a few different shows... Cold Case, and possibly Without a trace as well..

    omg, I had opened this thread in another tab thinking the Peter Bjorn and John song would be a shoe-in. I was watching the end of Journeyman when the song came on and I realized I hadn't read this thread yet.

    I even heard a cover of it on Coverville in the last week.

    Oh just wait until the network dramas get well into their story arcs and the characters start getting cancer and croaking off. Then that cover of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawo--Kamakaweel--Kamakawaiowa--that fat Hawaiian dude will rocket to the top of the list.

    At least they've gotten out of their KT Tungstal kick. It seemed like I "Suddenly I See"ed everytime I turned the damned TV on.

    Iz's version of SOTR was used in those eToys commercials circa 1999/2000. You can find many of them on youtube.

    The song used for the CSI teaser is a Kate Bush song, "This Womans Work". It's been used on a lot of tv shows, there is a list on IMDB:

    Heard a lot of "How to Save a Life" last year - IIRC it hit all the medical shows I watch - Scrubs, ER, Gray's...

    I haven't heard it yet this season, but I used to hear Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujia" on lots of shows during sad scenes. West Wing was the most memorable to me.

    I knew which song you were going to say when I saw the title. I only watched 3 of the 4 mentioned, but I did just watch Journeyman.

    Just as a side note... I tried some of these songs on 'the internet', as i loathed going to itunes to get a locked up song.

    I checked out amazon.com's store, and was able to pick up some of these one off songs for $0.89 .. with NO restrictions. They appear to be 320kbs songs.. much better quality then itunes...


    now i can be annoyed on the go!

    Seems like that "Over my head" song has been played a lot in various promos. Or maybe I've just seen the same one over and over, I don't know. :)

    Great, not only does the Biz use the same 1% of the population from the actors' pool, now it appears to be the same for music.

    Last nights episode of Las Vegas also started with it. I guess original thinking is out of style this year.
