Grey’s Anatomy has always been known for their exquisite musical taste. Whether it’s an upbeat indie pop song and tearjerking ballad Shonda Rhimes always knows the best song to play background for the drama at Grey Sloan Memorial. Who could forget the iconic musical episode of season seven? Till this day I cannot listen to The Fray’s “How to Save a Life” or “Chasing Cars” from Snow Patrol without bursting into tears. Thanks Ms. Rhimes. However you may have noticed that this season of Grey’s Anatomy features something different. The music supervisors on the show have spiced things up and decided to use covers as the soundtrack to everyone’s favourite doctors.
Each episode this season has including beautiful covers of popular songs, each one better than the last. Everyone from Taylor Swift, TLC, and even Queen Britney Spears has found new life on Grey’s Anatomy. The cover songs chosen are mostly ballad or slow down versions of the original, which makes them all that more awesome. You haven’t lived till you heard “Oops! I did it Again” slowed down. I am living for the music this season and love trying to guess the original song being covered. So listen to the covers featured and try to pick your favourite. It’ll be difficult.
