The Top 5 Musical Moments on Television Last Week


Drake and Jhené Aiko (Instagram)After an extended hiatus for the holidays, when most networks ditch the regular programming in favor of reruns and family favorites, Tunes on TV is back with a whole new crop of musical television moments to excited about. Here's what you might have missed.

1. "Completely Not Me," Jenny Lewis - Girls
The third season of HBO's Girls promises a boon of great tunes, including new songs from Lily Allen, Beck, and Christina Perri and exclusive tracks by Miguel, Cat Power, and more. The song catching everyone's attention during last week's two-part season premiere was this original by former Rilo Kiley frontwoman Jenny Lewis. It's available as an instant download with all pre-orders of Girls Volume 2: All Adventurous Women Do… which arrives in stores February 11.


2. "Far From Any Road," The Handsome Family - True Detective
Setting a foreboding tone for HBO's excellent new Matthew McConaughey drama True Detective is this haunting track off of The Handsome Family's 2003 album Singing Bones. No bongo accompaniment required.

3. "Dark Doo Wop," MS MR - The Originals
The CW's other vampire show made headlines last week for its social media war with Pretty Little Liars fans, but it deserves props for excellent music placement, too. Last week's episode featured this sparkling retro track from MS MR, who saw their hit single "Hurricane" featured in another episode last fall.

4. "Don't Worry, I'll Be Watching You," Gotye - Arrow

"Somebody That I Used to Know" singer Gotye gets all whispery and stalkerish for this dark tune, which soundtracked one of the less nerve-wracking moments on last week's episode of the CW's Arrow.

5. Drake and Jhené Aiko on Saturday Night Live
After years of bubbling just under the radar, Jhené Aiko is finally on the verge of breaking big. Here's why (though those rumors that these two have something going on in real life don't hurt, either).
