♬ Tom Odell – Can’t Pretend or $

With Shazam and similar music-identifying apps all the rage now, any TV producer will agree a key element to a successful show is its music selection. So I cheer on one of my favorites, “The Newsroom”, with the addition of this indie song from overseas by Brit Tom Odell, only 22 years old and already a winner of the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, earlier this year.

I appreciate ads with good music. And good bikes. Damn, now I want one. Anyway, check out this snazzy advert featuring Solé bikes and M83‘s pipes.

Last night, at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex) took home not one, not two, but three shiny lil’ GRAMMophones: best dance recording, best electronic recording, and best remixed recording (non-classical). It was pretty damn exciting, especially once Deadmau5 and David Guetta took the stage for live performances later in the show. Here’s what Skrillex had to say about it:

LOL. Actually, he dropped a new track to celebrate, tho kinda oddly titled “My Good Bye”, and weirdly slow… But uh, congratulations amigo; well-earned!!

♬ Skrillex – My Good Bye

♬ Glee Cast – We Found Love (Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna)

Right on the curtails of an epic Calvin Harris concert at Pacha NYC this past weekend, I uncover this gem of a cover: TV’s Glee doing We Found Love, originally by Calvin Harris and Rihanna!

And this just in: Calvin’s gonna be at TOMORROWLAND! If you don’t know what that is yet, inform yourself for godsakes.

♬ Spoon – The Way We Get By

If you haven’t checked out this Showtime original yet, you should take a peek at the series’ pilot and get addicted. Besides the supercool co-stars William H. Macy and Emmy Rossum, the show features some great music, like this teasers’ Spoon. And while you’ve probably heard this song before, did you know that Britt Daniel, the vocals and lead guitarist, is a dj himself? Check this out…

Usually, I’m all about The West Wing around Thanksgiving, but this year on this highly-important holiday, having been recently introduced to New Girl, a light but hilarious comedy featuring Zooey Deschanel (who’s also a fantastic singer), I just have to share this with you; I was dying I was laughing so hard. Airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Fox!

Bored to Death just kills me. Midway through season three, Jason Schwartzman is (still) a bumblingly-inexperienced, unlicensed detective, offering via Craig’s List to ‘solve people’s problems’. He’s accompanied by a motley crue of Zach Galifianakis, a pipe-smoking, penis-drawing cartoonist father of a sperm donor baby (and whose girlfriend is the ditz girl from Miss Congeniality; hilarious to see her again), and sidekicked by Ted Danson, for whom there are…no words… (only laughter). These three get in some of the most ridiculously amusing adventures as they admirably fight crime throughout Williamsburg and the surrounding burroughs.

♬ Matt Duncan – One Thousand Boys

What particularly made me wanna write about ’em was that they feature great music, like the song used in the fadeout during the end of this recently-aired clip; it’s by a small Kentucky band led by Matt Duncan that I never would’ve found in a million years. Tune in tonight, new episodes air Mondays at 9pm on HBO. For now, here’s another tune by the 6-boy band:

♬ Matt Duncan – Beacon

♬ Glee Cast – Rumour Has It/Someone Like You (Adele Mashup)

Even though I caught a preview of this last week, I was still mad impressed when it aired this past Tuesday night. Forget however you feel about Glee; there’s simply no denying the crazy-dancy-goodness of this mashup of Adele’s’ “Rumour Has It” and “Someone Like You”. Sorry for the delay… enjoy your thursday night television, Amurrica..
