The future

Back in the mid-90s, tribute collections were all the rage. George Plasketes even wrote a discography of some of the better ones up to 1995.

Then in the early 2000s we had the film soundtrack. It seemed like every soundtrack was full of covers.

Now, another 5 years later, it's the television soundtrack. First of all, I find it interesting that television shows are better at introducing you to new bands than films or even radio. But now they add the interesting covers as well. Today alone I heard a strange cover on some commercial, and then the most recent E.R. ended with a very nice (maybe even better than the Posies' version -- or maybe not ;) ) cover of "Ooooh Child".

Who would have thought that television would be the future?
