Question: What is the name of the title song for the WB series Charmed, and who performs it?

Televisionary: That's a version of The Smiths' "How Soon Is Now?" performed by Love Spit Love. You can get a longer version of it on the soundtrack from that other pretty-witch property, The Craft.

Normally I'd go on a rant about how much better the original song is (and it is better), especially since I usually hate remakes that add little or nothing to the real thing. However, I cut Love Spit Love front man Richard Butler some slack due to his '80s Psychedelic Furs pedigree.

Try as I might to be a purist, I have to admit I don't mind the Charmed take. But there's no question it lacks the righteous angst and misery of the Morrissey delivery.
