This comment about Legion made me wonder: what TV show music have you heard that made you go find that song, research the artist etc.?

Aside from great theme songs like in True Detective, The Sopranos or BoJack Horseman, the whole music collection for Good Behavior is brilliant, sometimes mindblowing.
What stood out for you?

Carrying on from that comment of mine Season 1 of Legion had awesome tracks through it.

Recently The Blacklist has had some decent music in some of its episodes that was more about giving the scene atmosphere rather than being great music (although it seemed to work both ways for me) - Sounds of Silence by Disturbed, Ring of Fire by Wall of VooDoo.

Person of Interest introduced me to The Glitch Mob which was a pleasant discovery . The song Fortune Days plays repeatedly through the episode: If-Then-Else (which is a great episode of the show) and really built a nice connection to the song.

Best recent needle drop- Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s Work” in the Handmaid’s Tale.

Also an eyebrow-raiser- Fad Gadget’s “Back to Nature” in Stranger Things.

I have a lot of Johnny Flynn's music thanks to it being used on Detectorists.

I'm a big fan of the '90s alternative piano renditions in Westworld.

The Wire, Justified, and Bosch all had good theme songs.

When I was watching Treme I'd spend ages after each episode tracking down stuff.

I think the only other show that came close to that for me was Ashes to Ashes, the one about that time travelling cop. Not anywhere near the same volume though and I was familiar with most of it already.

Someone reccomended The Get Down to me and I haven't looked at it yet but I imagine it will be in the same ballpark.

Also have the Firefly soundtrack to listen to while playing Firefly The Game and the Deep Space Nine soundtrack if I ever get to play my copy of Star Trek Ascension.

The first time I went looking for music from a tv show was Homicide, either season three or four. It was an odd retro noir style episode centered on a seedy motel on the outskirts of Baltimore, and featured "In Your Wildest Dreams," a haunting track by The Reverend Horton Heat. Since then, I have noticed plenty of other good songs on various tv shows, and the internet has made it easy to track them down.

Thanks to YouTube, I randomly encountered The Glitch Mob. I love their song Between Two Points, but otherwise wasn't really into that album, Drink the Sea. I will give them another try.

I pimp out my favorite games by burning soundtracks for them. The Firefly soundtrack is too short for the Firefly game, so I padded it out with 2 additional discs worth of music, mostly folk or alt-country. Because the individual tracks on the Firefly soundtrack are typically multiple and distinctly different short pieces, I tended to alternate tracks. One Firefly track followed by two other tracks, repeat.

.


The original British series had a lot of good Brit 80s music all through it and its predecessor, Life on Mars, was probably to same for 70s music but I can't remember now.

I usually start the game with the Firefly & Serenity soundtracks then switch over to my default gaming music, Pink Floyd.

I'm fond of Pink Floyd. I think that I put Fearless on disc 3 of my Firefly soundtrack.
