As you might know from the last post, I am preoccupied with all things Sons of Anarchy. Not only does the show have a riveting storyline and a talented cast of actors and actresses, it also has amazing music. The Music Supervisor, Bob Thiele Jr. doesn’t only plug in songs from well known artists (although I loved hearing some favorites like The Black Keys, Soundgarden, The Head and the Heart and Jane’s Addiction) he also created a band called The Forest Rangers, who cover well know songs, create new scores and have a revolving door of amazing lead vocalists.
Just go to their site and check out how they came about and how they incorporate their songs into each episode.
Gimme Shelter, originally by The Rolling Stones, is a prime example of how they weave a song and it’s lyrics into the drama of the show.
Sons of Anarchy also has two soundtrack albums available at Amazon and iTunes.
