Must-Hear TV

TV has been raiding record-company vaults to fuel it's dramas - and igniting CD sales in the process. Here, three music mavens talk about how tunes make the scenes.


Glenn Gordon Caron, creator/exec producer, Now and Again, CBS PHILOSOPHY: "We treat each episode like a little movie."

Janet Jackson's "Got 'Til It's Gone" -- "The song's melancholy was appropriate when John Goodman died."

AC/DC's "Hell's Bells" -- "We wanted 'I Am the Walrus' because the pilot introduces the character Eggman, but the Beatles' rep was uncomfortable with all the blood."

Aerosmith's "Crazy" -- "It's obvious. A man invents a serum that removes fear, and people start ripping off their clothes."
