In Stereogum’s neverending quest to tell you which indie rock song was in which network sitcom last night, we turn to Kris at PantryRaider. He heard some Pavement on that new Doogie Howser show and even took a screengrab…
“Since Michelle Williams uttered ‘It’s Been Slanted and Enchanted’ on Dawson’s Creek, indie yuppies have been either annoyed or elated with television’s shout outs. Last week’s mention of the Arcade Fire on Four Kings didn’t seem to sit so well. However, last night’s How I Met Your Mother‘s use of Pavement’s ‘Spit on A Stranger’ got me all choked up. Not final montage of Six Feet Under choked up, but there was definately a tear or two. Good thing they didn’t use the Nickel Creek version, it could have led to full waterworks.”
And if they used the Kathryn Williams version?

Then I’d be really impressed.
Apparently, How I Met Your Mother has already used “Major Leagues” in an episode? Is Stephen Malkmus the music supervisor or something?
You can also consider this the default thread to bitch about Love Monkey. I haven’t seen it yet, but some of you seem to have a lot to say about that. And the voice of Geddy Lee. How’d it get so damn high?
