Question: Mr. Televisionary, you're my only hope! I know that once before you answered a question about a song played during a show. (See? I do read your column avidly!) But you wouldn't give up your sources for finding out this info, so here I am asking for your help! I loved the song that played during the closing credits of Six Feet Under in the "Driving Mr. Mossback" episode. Please put me out of my misery! Thank you.
Answer: Oh, Lynne once before? Surely, an avid reader such as yourself knows that I'm a sucker for these "What was that song?" questions and that I answer them quite frequently. But who am I to doubt you? Thanks for your readership just the same.I believe the song that's making you so darned miserable is Joe 90's "Drive," which is on the album Dream This. It played while Nate (Peter Krause) and Claire (Lauren Ambrose) drove (get it?) away with the body of the late, aviophobic Mr. Mossback.
Throwing in more TV trivia (for loading you down with as much as possible is my job, y'know), Joe 90 was named for the old British marionette series from puppet master Gerry Anderson, who brought us such classics as Stingray, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons. And, of course, I won't reveal the sources I use to supplement my own unearthly TV powers; I need you people at my mercy.
