Hosted by Jeff Terich and Candice Eley from Treblezine.com, The Cue Sheet takes a look at the best (and worst) musical moments from our favorite TV shows.
The Cue Sheet: The Music of The Americans
The Music of Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Sunnydale had a lot going for it: a mall, numerous graveyards, and all sorts of bands and artists playing live at the Bronze...even if they risked becoming some vampire's dinner. Jeff Terich and Candice Renee from Treble are joined by noted Buffy enthusiast, musician and co-host of Buffering the Vampire Slayer, Jenny Owen Youngs, to talk about Buffy's best (and worst) musical moments. From Cibo Matto to Cream to Michelle Branch, the music on Buffy the Vampire Slayer made iconic moments even more impactful and still holds up more than 20 years later.
The Music of Stranger Things
The Clash, The Cramps, Musical Youth, New Order, Metallica...oh, and did we mention Kate Bush? Even though the songs have been around for decades, the music used in the Netflix series Stranger Things has had a massive impact on present-day pop culture. Hosts Jeff Terich and Candice Renee from Treble talk about the best musical moments from seasons 1 through 4, and discuss why it's actually a great thing that today's teens are rediscovering the songs that Millennials and Gen Xers grew up with.
The Music of Mad Men
From Chubby Checker and the Rolling Stones to obscure French pop songs, the music of Mad Men was just as iconic as the fashion. Hosts Candice Renee and Jeff Terich are joined by David Lizerbram and Andrew Keatts from the podcast Rock Docs to talk about how Mad Men used the music of the 1960s to create a soundtrack to the era that was both on-target and unexpected.
The Music of My So Called Life
It may have only lasted one season, but My So Called Life changed TV forever, and that includes through its use of music. From Buffalo Tom to Jawbox to TLC and Haddaway, My So Called Life had a diverse soundtrack that led to many iconic musical moments in its limited run. Hosts Jeff Terich and Candice Renee from Treble get into the impact music had on this quintessentially '90s show.
The Music of Miami Vice
A pastel-clad Sunny Crockett hops out of his Ferrari as he tails a witness into a downtown Miami Club to the music of...Suicidal Tendancies?? That's right, throw out everything you think you know about Miami Vice as Jeff and Candice discuss the TV show that changed how music get used in TV shows. From Phil Collins and Glenn Frey to Kate Bush and Ministry, there are a lot of interesting musical moments to discuss on the show created to be "MTV cops."
Great for lovers of music and TV
I always get excited when a new episode of The Cue Sheet drops. It’s a great way to revisit some of my favorite TV shows and gain some insight into how their music choices helped to tell their stories and create rich fictional worlds. Jeff
