Opening credits/theme song for True Blood. The amazing “Bad Things” by Jace Everett
Music Supervisor: Gary Calamar


Bon Iver and St Vincent collab off the New Moon Soundtrack: “Roslyn”
Music Supervisor: Alexandra Patsavas, Chop Shop


One of the reasons I originally tuned into Glee the first time was because of this cover of “Don’t Stop Believing” (from my beloved Journey) that was featured in the commercials.
Music Supervisor: PJ Bloom

Can’t wait for tomorrow and Friday!

  1. “True Blood” opening credits is effing genius all around. Also I love how the song was actually written/released YEARS ago, but no one knew about it and now its a huge smash. And that all the episodes are named after the end title song.
