Synopsis

Album Description
The "Grey's Anatomy" soundtrack features an eclectic mix of indie pop and rock artists whose music was heard during the first season of Grey's Anatomy--a wildly popular ABC drama about surgical interns in Seattle.
The soundtrack features electrifying music from such beloved indie artists as Rilo Kiley, The Postal Service, Ben Lee, and Medeski, Martin & Wood, as well as undiscovered talent such as London-based electropop duo Psapp, who supply the show's main title song "Cosy in the Rocket."
The album's tracks, many of which can be heard during key emotional scenes in various episodes, were chosen by the show's creator and executive producer, Shonda Rhimes and executive producer Betsy Beers, from a large pool of artists introduced to them by music supervisor Alex Patsavas, who is also the music supervisor of Fox's The O.C.. "We fall in love with the songs," says Rhimes. "We ride around listening to them in our cars. We call each other to talk about them on the phone. We get them into our heads and into our souls. And then we weave them into the show because we can't live without them."

Not just a one night stand (are there enough stars?)
Angie Engles | Columbia, MD United States | 11/30/2005

"I fell in love with this soundtrack much the way I did the tv show it goes with: slowly, surely and softly. The music featured on "Grey's Anatomy" packs a gentle punch and can blissfully remind you of why music is the only thing you can purchase that touches your heart and soul completely. Clothes, food, even books can't reach that spot deep inside you that yearns to be free.

Think I'm exaggerating? Well then, listen to the opening track "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service and tell me you don't levitate with tranquility off your living room couch...

As for the second song, the delicious "Ruby Blue" by Roisin Murphy, if you don't feel rhythym coursing through your entire body, you might consider getting a doctor to look at you.

"Song Beneath the Song" follows and continues the very mellow sounds of "Such Great Heights." Don't be scared by the word "mellow." This is the kind of peace anyone who works non-stop needs to unwind with at the end of the day. I promise you your mind won't turn to mush.

Though the overall tone of the album is set by a fairly languid pace, no two numbers are exactly the same. "Where Does the Good Go?" is a bit quirky with a persisting chorus that matches the demanding needs of the lyrics (especially with the line: "look me in the eye") while the live version of Ben Lee's fabulously pop "Catch my Disease" is light-hearted happiness.

I won't take up too much more of your time raving like a lovestruck lunatic. All I want to emphasize is how wonderful GREY's ANATOMY soundtrack is; how do you do justice to an album that features Rilo Kiley (a terrific group by the way!), Inara George ("Fools in Love" is heartbreakingly gorgeous and especially soothing during hard times), The Ditty Bops and Get Set Go all on the same project??

Even as I write this, I'm listening to the album for probably the 20th time since I got it the week before last. Beauty, sorrow, joy, peace, wacky instability ("Ruby Blue")...everything that makes the show so lovable is here on the soundtrack.

Take this home with you and be kind to it in the morning! Be careful,though, that you don't lose your heart to it too soon...


super+++tracks include: "Such Great Heights," "Ruby Blue," "Song Beneath the Song," "Wait" (you'd wait for anyone who sings like this!), "Could be Anything," "Portions for Foxes," "Fools in Love," and "Cosy in the Rocket" (a perfect closer to the album!!)

Buy right now and enjoy!!!!!!"
Excellent soundtrack for an excellent show

"Grey's Anatomy is favorite guilty pleasure. In a mere 14 episodes, the show has risen above the cliched soapy drama mold with sharp writing, intriguing storylines, multi-layered performances by a diverse and talented cast. It has reinvigorated the ensemble drama.

Therefore, it's no surprise that it's soundtrack is equally as engaging. The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights", used prominently in the show's first promotional advertisements, is an excellent opening. It is followed by the phenomenally brassy "Ruby Blue" (my eternal thanks to the music supervisors to introducing the amazing Roison Murphy into the mainstream). My favorite tracks include Rilo Kiley's "Portions for Foxes" (which was featured in the pilot episode), The Eames Era's "Could Be Anything", "Song Beneath the Song" by Maria Taylor, "Looking At The World From The Bottom Of A Well" by Mike Doughty, and what could possibly be the intern's theme, "Whatever Gets You Through The Day" by The Radio. The CD ends with an extended version of the hauntingly catchy theme song, "Cosy In The Rocket" by Psapp.

It's an expertly crafted assortment of music that is a perfect companion to an expertly crafted television show. A must for any Grey's Anatomy fan, but really, a must for anyone who appreciates good music."
