Spotlight on: Grey's Anatomy

I am not actually allowed to watch Grey's Anatomy (or any other medical dramas, for that matter - I find them upsetting), but Grey's has one of the best soundtracks on television right now, so I like to check in at the show's Web site to see what made Grey's music editor Alexandra Patsavas's cut. (The Grey's team is so into music, many of their ep titles references songs and song lyrics, such as this season's "Time Has Come Today," "Don't Stand So Close to Me," "Wishin' and Hopin'", etc.)

Patsavas has what I consider to be one of the coolest jobs in the universe - she earned her current gig by working at other musically hip shows like The OC and Rescue Me, as well as one of my favorite cult classics, HBO's now-dead Carnivale. She was even nominated for a Grammy this year for the second Grey's Anatomy Soundtrack in the "Best Compilation Soundtrack for a Motion Picture, Television Series or Other Visual Media" category.

Anyhow, I recently went through seasons 1 and 2 of Grey's and wrote down a list of artists whose songs appeared on the show. I thought others might benefit from the list, so here it is (it's not quite comprehensive, but it's fairly complete):
