ABC's modern medical soap Grey's Anatomy was music-savvy from its initial promotional push, pairing the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" to snippets of the cast cracking wise and learning about life as they tumbled through first-year residencies. Music licensing was nothing new for the Postal Service by the fall 2004 premiere season; their graceful indie electronica had already been featured in Garden State, Laguna Beach, you name it. But it was undoubtedly the comforting familiarity of the song to its target demographic that Grey's was likely after.

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
ABC's modern medical soap Grey's Anatomy was music-savvy from its initial promotional push, pairing the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" to snippets of the cast cracking wise and learning about life as they tumbled through first-year residencies. Music licensing was nothing new for the Postal Service by the fall 2004 premiere season; their graceful indie electronica had already been featured in Garden State, Laguna Beach, you name it. But it was undoubtedly the comforting familiarity of the song to its target demographic that Grey's was likely after. Alexandra Patsavas, the show's music supervisor, definitely understands how to pick tunes that are both substantial and influential -- she supervises The OC's soundtrack, too. Released in anticipation of season two, Grey's Anatomy includes the show's theme -- performed by the London duo Psapp, it suggests a glitchy, pomo update of St. Elsewhere's intro music -- as well as tracks that fit generally into a category of literate indie. They're slightly fringe, but ultra-accessible. Ex-Moloko vocalist Roisin Murphy contributes the sassy Eurythmics nod "Ruby Blue" from her overlooked solo debut of the same name, while Tegan & Sara's anxiously redemptive "Where Does the Good Go" was seemingly made for a show about stress getting in the way of life. Get Set Go's "Wait" measures out dry Shins/Clem Snide-style romanticism, the Ditty Bops' Holly Hobby-and-Beatles songcraft comes alive on "There's a Girl," Inara George's torch folk is capable enough stand-in for the perpetually underrated Eleni Mandell, and Medeski, Martin & Wood's "End of the World Party" is an experiment in layered groove-building. Yes, on this soundtrack, even the instrumentals are distinctive. Grey's Anatomy has met the challenge of finding demographically pleasing music. But it explores beyond that boundary for some truly memorable songs, and never feels like a cash-in comp for easy cross-promotion.

    Where is Kendall?

    This is a good Mix for anyone who is a fan of the Show. Same good Music for a good show. You left one of the BEST songs off of this compilation though. Kendall Paynes Scratch should be on here no matter what!

    Perfect!!!

    I'm a big fan of the show so I had to by it. My favorites are as followed: Such Great Heights, Ruby Blue, Looking at the World From the Bottom of a Well, Portions for Foxes, Catch My Disease, and Cosy in the Rocket. Most of these songs mostly describe Ellen(Meridith), but it also describes the other charaters. They only thing it's missing is a picture of Addison, but other than than it's perfect!!!! It's a must have for any Grey's Anatomy fan.

    A Wonderful Suprise

    I bought this cd expecting to get an assortment of good songs, but nothing really special. Wow, I shouldn't have been suprised, with the amazing quality that goes into Grey's anatomy it reflects in this amazing soundtrack. My personal Favorites include "Where Does The good Go" and " Fools in love". For fans of the show these songs invoke the scenes they represent from the show. On it's own its a wonderful way to be introduced to new artists.

    A Good Soundtrack for a Great Show

    I didn't start watching Grey's Anatomy until the first episode of the second season but I was in love with it immediatley. I loved the music as well so when I found out they were releasing a soundtrack I was the first one in line to get it. There are some pretty good tracks that really capture the feel of the show. My favorite is "Ruby Blue" by Rosin Murphy. There are a few songs on here that grate my nerves though so that's why I only gave it 4 stars. I would still recomend it though, it's the perfect companion to the show and even if you don't watch it and are into good indie music you'll love this CD as well.
