I love this show...especially this season. It is good television. I don't know if I would love it if it was a novel, or a play, or a movie...but it makes damn good television. I tell people that I haven't seen television this good since Barbara Walters' interview with Monica Lewinsky...and that was in 1999!
Anyway, that's not the point of this post. My little brother got me a $15 iTunes gift card for Christmas that I had yet to redeem. Yesterday, I decided to buy an album and I wanted music that I wouldn't normally purchase. I've had a string of good luck recently by expanding my musical collection...I bought Jack Johnson's first album for $10 and I love it. So I'm cruising on iTunes and come across Imogen Heap. I discover that she is part of the group Frou Frou, whose song from the Garden State soundtrack I downloaded. I listen to snippets from a couple of her songs and they are different, but oddly familiar. So I buy the album. I download it to my nano and head home.
It must have been while the subway was heading into Brooklyn that I realized why I dig this music that I barely know...it's because it's the type of music Grey's Anatomy uses! Just listen to the theme song and listen to an Imogen track...it's uncanny! So not only is Grey's Anatomy damn good television...it's also a form of mind control.
Ah well...I have to watch this Sunday because Melissa needs me to recap it for her, so I guess Big Sister - Shonda Rhimes, the creator of the show - will have her way with me for one more week.
