My New Favorite TV Show

A show I'd never heard of before was making noise for the last hour. I wasn't much paying attention to it. It's called "October Road." It's about some dude who's in lurv with some chick and she has a cute moppet of a kid and there's a town with quirky residents and suchlike. Anyway, it caught my attention at the very end in the now-obligatory closing musical montage (a la "Lost" and "Gray's Anatomy") where they play some crappy song over footage of the characters absorbing the important lessons they've learned this week and all that jazz. Usually it's total piano pussy-rock (a la The Fray's "How to Save a Life" on "Gray's Anatomy") or some chick trying to be Joni Mitchell. The show tonight caught my attention because they didn't play a crappy song.

They played a FUCKING AWESOME song.

What song? The Single Greatest Hairband Power Ballad of All Time.

Sing along if you know the words...

Ev'ry rose has its thorn...
Jus' like, eeeeeev'ry night has its dawn...
Jus' like, ev'ry cowboy...
Sings a

[insert kickass C.C. DeVille guitar solo here]

Fuckin' sweet, man.

Next week I'm hoping they do their Closing Musical Montage with Cinderella's immortal "Don't Know What You Got ('Til It's Gone)." Or maybe "Alone Again," just so it can truly be said that their show is Rockin like Dokken.
