That new show with Lorelai Gilmore!

The last entry was a bit loquacious and quite ranty/ravey, so let me just take a moment to give a short and sweet spiel about a new NBC show.

Parenthood" the hour long dramedy starring... well, a slew of people, really, hasn't exactly hit the nail on the head but also hasn't messed up royally by any means. A lot of the characters are likable (and believable!) and actually quite akin to something one might call "reality." But this is CineMUSic! Of course I'm going to talk about the music!

With the exception of the opening song ("
Forever Young Continued" by Bob Dylan) the music is currently kicking ass. It's a family show, so odds are we'll never hear crazy-weird indie stuff, but here's a quick list of some of the best tracks (I think) they've used:

1. "
Natural Disaster," Andrew Bird
2. "
Once In A Lifetime," Talking Heads (okay, definitely not indie, but still super good!)
3. "
Cool Yourself," Thao Nguyen with the Get Down Stay Down
4. "When You Learn To Sing," Rocco DeLuca

And these are among quite a few other great choices. If you're into mellow, acoustic-y music that won't offend you, I would definitely recommend checking out the music from this show. And if you're like me and no matter how much television you watch it just doesn't seem to be enough, pick up on this show. It's only six episodes in and it's nice. Even
Dax Shepard doesn't totally suck in it!
