Under Covers Over You

When I first heard that season three of Weeds features a cover of "Little Boxes" by Linkin Park, I didn't believe the news.

Well, Linkin Park covered the show's theme song. I wonder if their version includes any clapping.

Producers received over 90 covers of "Little Boxes" for 15 title sequences.

Every season, The Wire uses a different version of "Way Down in the Hole" in its title sequence.

Season five welcomes a cover by Steve Earle.

Wikipedia > The Wire > Music:

The Wire is unusual in utilizing almost only diegetic music; that is, all music must emanate from a source within the scene.

I never noticed that.

During its run, The O.C. used three versions of "California" in its title sequence: the original recording, a 2005 acoustic recording and a cover by Mates of State.

Newport Harbor will follow The Real World: Sydney.

In a first for the series, a cast member is challenged by their significant other back home to make a choice: Sydney or their relationship.

TNT ain't the only network that knows drama.

Would you dump your significant other for The Real World? The Real World that we know today?

The cast is assigned to design a two-day Sydney sightseeing tour. The opportunity to win a European trip creates friendly competition as the roommates go head-to-head.

Ha! A Real World challenge!

M. Night Shyamalan's Celebrity Playlist is comically solipsistic. About his choice of Blink-182's All of This, he writes: "I love this song. Almost did a video for this. It would have been about vampires." About Pearl Jam's Rearviewmirror: "I wrote my first studio screenplay to this." And so on.

Kanye West really likes Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles. (He writes: "This must be the white song that all black people like.") [source]

Why hasn't Vanessa Carlton's label change received more attention?
