TunesOnTheTube.tv is dedicated to helping you find music played on your favorite TV shows!
Over the past few years the background music on TV shows has become an integral part of the storytelling in many dramas such as
The music heard on TV shows like "Gossip Girl", "Army Wives", "True Blood", "Entourage" and many others has led to increased exposure for the groups and singers featured, and artists' representatives are trying hard to get THEIR clients' music featured in hit shows. Often exposure in a hit TV show can lead to a massive increase in sales of MP3 downloads in the days following the episode's broadcast.
Sometimes we get visitors saying that a song we listed as played on an episode of a show is wrong, and admittedly we make the occasional mistake, but what most people don't realize is that many times the songs are changed for the online version, international broadcast, and/or the DVD release, for financial, legal or copyright reasons.
We started TunesOnTheTube.tv about three years ago, after hearing a song on a TV show we'd been watching. We figured that if WE were searching for songs played in TV shows, there were probably thousands of other people asking "How do I find music on TV shows?". And so TunesOnTheTube.tv was born! Much to our surprise and delight, we have grown to have a huge fan-base from all over the world, many of whom we now consider as friends. It seems one thing that unites people all over the world is TV Show songs! Here is a sample of e-mails we have received, re-printed with permission.
Karen from Pittsburgh writes, "Thank you, thank you, thank you! There are so many songs on TV I would love to buy but I never know who sings them. Your site is a God-send!...."
Jon in Ottawa writes, "I am so happy! I love your site. I am telling all my friends that yours is the place to go to for songs on television shows!"
Angela from Newnan, GA, writes "There was a song I heard on "Without a Trace" about 3 years ago and it stuck in my mind ever since. I found it and bought it on your site today! Hallelujah! That was the song but I also say it to you guys!"
Dieter from Munich, Germany writes, "TunesOnTheTube is my new favourite site. I wish I had known about you before."

I always like to see how a group chose their name, but all I can find about the Cowboy Junkies is that they chose their name 'randomly' on the way to their fist gig. The group personnel has remained unchanged since they first formed in 1985 in Toronto, Ontario. Three family members, Margo, Michael and Peter Timmins and Alan Anton. The three Timmins siblings are descendants of one Noah Timmins (read more....)
A session singer increases his or her value significantly when they can do something that others cannot. Being able to help in figuring out problem issues or stepping in to help in a way no one else can might be of great benefit to your career. Sometimes simply being able and willing to plunk out the notes on the piano will garner you great respect. (read more....)
I was recently asked to produce a list of my top 30 singles of all time. This proved to be a very difficult task but number one on my list was no problem at all and I immediately installed Joy Division's haunting and powerful single "Love Will Tear Us Apart" at the top of my list. The single only reached number 13 in the UK charts and as far as I can see never reached the Billboard Top 100, but it has been covered by many other artists since and is often quoted as being one of the most influential singles of all time. It has appeared in many TV shows, notably "Cold Case." ... (read more....)
Some of my favorite artists died young. Buddy Holly, Jim Croce, John Denver, and the subject of this article, Sandy Denny. Born Alexandra Elene MacLean Denny in Wimbledon, U.K. in 1947, Sandy was influenced early on by traditional and folk music and over her tragically short career was recognized by her peers as the pre-eminent folk singer songwriter of her time. She wrote so many poignant, beautiful songs but her stand out track to me is "Who Knows Where The Time Goes" covered very many times, by such people as Judy Collins, Nanci Griffith and Eva Cassidy.
