The Huffington Post has an intriguing post about TV’s best music moments. Basically, it’s a list of montages in television episodes that are memorably set to songs. Check it out.
I completely agree on the classic uses of music in the finales of The Sopranos and Six Feet Under, but I disagree that The O.C. used “Hallelujah” more memorably than The West Wing did in their episode, “Posse Comitatus” (see below). I also think that their choice of “Goodbye to You” in Tabula Rasa from Buffy misses the mark; “Full of Grace” from the ending of Becoming, Part 2 (which plays as Buffy leaves Sunnydale after killing Angel) is far superior. Also, if we are talking Buffyverse montage songs, I find the use of “A Place Called Home” from Angel haunting (it is used as the characters contemplate Fred’s death in Shells).
