- (Spoiler Alert!) The musical soundtrack for episode one of Life has generated a lot of discussion; here’s all the information we have so far:
» According to this site the song played during the “I’m not in love with this car” scene (when Charlie pulls over his ex-wife’s new husband for a minor traffic violation) is Single Sedative from a new album titled Ameritown by the Eastern Conference Champions. (Warning, explicit lyrics!)
» The song that plays near the end of the show (while Charlie is studying his “conspiracy wall” ) is Dream Awake by the Frames.
» During last night’s live, online blog chat at NBC.com Rand Ravich (Life’s creator and producer) had this to say about the show’s music:
“We have a music supervisor named Liza Richardson, but I also write the music and when I imagine scenes and situations I have a cue in my head. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t, but I do have an active role in music for the show.
For a big scene, I usually have the song in my head early on. When the scene starts coming together, I can cut it in and see if it works… then we have to see if we can actually afford it.” 😆
