Headlights Featured On Grey's Anatomy

So, there I was on my couch with the signif getting our weekly fix of Grey's Anatomy when suddenly something seemed odd. The background music wasn't just the usual fare of Sub-Pop or Barsuck indie rock that is usually filling the scenes of the show... it was Champaign-Urbana's own Headlights! "Everybody Needs A Fence To Lean On" was trimmed up to the opening and closing parts of the song, which feature Erin Fein singing behind a sort of spacey tickling of the electronic ivories. Not that I'm partial, but I'd say that's been the best placement of a song in the series, and I've seen them all.

You can pick up a copy of Headlight's The Enemies EP locally at Exile On Main St, download it from iTunes Music Store, or mail order directly from the band's label, Polyvinyl.

Headlights L to R: Brett, Erin, Tristan

Yeah, it's always an eye catcher. On Ally McBeal about five years ago, there was a scene that looked like the Burlington, Vermont downtown plaza (the show took place in Boston). I lived in VT at the time, checked and sure enough, the producers used film of Burlington (for that one show) because it looked more like Boston. Hmmm

It would be interesting to find out all of the local acts who have had songs in movies or television shows (e.g. -- Adam Schmitt, Living Blue, Robynn Ragland, etc).

When I was in the Moon Seven Times we had a song in some movie which I cannot remember and also in the film Live Nude Girls. In the case of the latter the scene in which our song appeared was cut (subsequently, we did not get paid), however, if you watch the credits we are still listed.

Maybe Noiseboy could compile a list for us (seeing as how he will have lots of free time not following baseball as the Cardinals are going to suck).
