Music on TV: Once, A Fine Frenzy, Plant/Krauss, Fisher

Congratulations to Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova on winning the Oscar for Best Original Song! For the few who hadn’t heard “Falling Slowly” before the award show performance, the ballad is on the brilliant Once soundtrack. It was #4 on my Top Albums of 2007 list. I thought the Hansard/Irglova/Stewart interaction last night was adorable.

I occasionally get asked about songs played in tv shows or commercials. Most of these questions pertain to Kate Voegele‘s role as Mia on One Tree Hill. If you’re curious about the song playing in the final scene of this week’s episode of OTH, it was “Ashes And Wine” from A Fine Frenzy’s One Cell In The Sea.

The new JC Penney American Living commercial features “Killing The Blues” from Raising Sand by Robert Plant and Alison Krauss – #7 on my Top of ’07 list.

And the song in the animated CVS Pharmacy commercial is a cover of Sarah Mclachlan’s “Ordinary Miracle” performed by Kathy Fisher of the band Fisher, an old online acquaintance of mine. Fisher’s “I Will Love You” (which she was kind enough to dedicate to my hubby & me at Mountain Stage in 2001) was the first mp3 I ever downloaded. It’s on her debut album One.
