Page 48 wrote a great post about his favorite music from Alias, which I thought would make a fun article seeing what other musical memories our bloggers have. For me every time I hear No Doubt's Hella Good I picture the scene above from S2's "The Getaway." Same for Blur's Song 2 that always brings back the awesome garage car chase in S3's "Blow Back." I've copied Page's post below, what other spy-music do you remember?
Okay, kids, from time to time here on LTA we hit a dry spell when no one has a bloody thing to say about anything.
We are at such a point RFN (right effing now), so I have decided to make the ultimate sacrifice. Yes, I have decided to stay up late, drink beer and rediscover (for my benefit as well as yours) some of the musical highlights of the 4.77 seasons of joy that "Alias" gave us.
While these are only a few of the many songs featured in "Alias", they are among my personal faves. I have chosen, where possible, to present live versions of these songs performed (of course) by the original artists.
As I chose these songs and scoured Youtube for the performances, I was thrown into a sort of post-"Alias" depression. The beauty of not only the show, but the very carefully selected music makes me long for the days when there was always new "Alias" to look forward to.
Was this a great show or what???
Fleetwood Mac's Songbird from season one's "The Box" (part 2).
Bob Dylan's Shelter From The Storm from season two's "Trust Me"
Joni Mitchell's River from season two's "The Indicator"
John Fogerty's Bad Moon Rising from season two's "Passage" (part 1)
U2's Walk On from season two's "Passage" (part 1)
AC/DC's Back in Black from (as if I need to tell you) season two's "Phase One".
U2's Bad from season four's "Authorized Personnel Only" (BTW, how many people reading this blog remember watching "Live Aid"?). Is there anything in this world more uplifting than U2 in their prime?
Cat Steven's The Wind from season four's "Authorized Personnel Only"
Bob Dylan's Lay Lady Lay from season four's "Before the Flood" (which, for the uninitiated, gets it's name from the 1974 live Bob Dylan album from which this particular performance comes)
Elton John's Your Song from season five's "Fait Accompli"
Who canceled this show and what the hell were they thinking? Will we ever see the likes of this again?
