A Song Used Well in a Film or TV Show
Here are the staff picks:
Dan Milliken: “Hold On” – Wilson Phillips
It’s in Bridesmaids. Go see Bridesmaids.
Tara Seetharam: “Will You Be There” – Michael Jackson
I love this song, Free Willy and killer whales with equal passion. Don’t judge.
Kevin Coyne: “Hey Ho” – Gin Wigmore
Weeds uses music more effectively than just about any show I’ve seen, especially in their season finales. For pure brilliance, it’s impossible to top the way that June Christy’s “A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening” was used in the season five closer. But in terms of truly expanding on the action on screen. “Hey Ho” was the perfect choice, ending season six on the perfect note.
