TV Tunes: Alias

There’s no better way to find new music then through TV shows. Come to think of it, that’s where most of the music on my iPod comes from. Not only are you introduced to amazing new artists, but every time you hear the song you are immediately transported to that scene when it was playing.

I’m in awe of the people who choose these songs…do they literally know every single song in the world? Do they spend their days just listening to music? If so how do I get this job?

So for this inaugural post, what better show to start with than the show that first opened my eyes to TV tunes: Alias.

It’s probably my all time favourite TV show. Alias is the story of Sydney Bristow (Jennifer Garner) a woman who works for a top-secret branch of the CIA, but after the death of her fiancée discovers it’s not the real CIA. Cue double agent hijinks and a hot new love interest. I love the missions, the costumes, Marshall’s gadgets, but most of all I love Sydney and Vaughn. (See exhibit A below)

So here are my top music moments from the entire 5 seasons.

Angel – Sarah McLachlan (Season 1, Episode 4)

Stay – Michelle Featherstone (Season 2, Episode 4)

My Skin – Natalie Merchant (Season 1, Episode 22)

This Woman’s Work – Kate Bush (Season 1, Episode 2)

She’s Got You – Patsy Cline (Season 3, Episode 3)

Dirty Little Secret – Sarah McLachlan (Season 5, Episode 1)

River – Joni Mitchell (Season 2, Episode 5)
