Gossip Girl Pays Homage To Sex And The City: The Music Behind The Finale!

First of all!

Let us just say that… we find it VERY interesting and cool that Gossip Girl used Scarlett Johansson's music in Blake Lively's show.

Playing the music of the star's husband's ex-wife in the series finale?? …maturity is a beautiful thing!

GG's swan song opened with Lulu Gainsbourg and ScarJo's sultry cover of Bonnie & Clyde as Chuck and Blair were escaping from the scene of his father's death. This was also the moment when Serena learned the truth behind GG and hopped off the plane to rush to Dan.

But that wouldn't be the only musical highlight of the night!

Not even close!

As the CHAIR wedding was in preparation, It's Time by the delightful Imagine Dragons swept our silver screens in a tour de force! Seriously… we haven't felt that pumped for a TV wedding in a loooong time!

Their nuptials continued and Chuck and Blair exchanged their vows to The Talking Heads' Road To Nowhere, which provided an atmosphere of certainty, of satis… faction.

But theirs wasn't the only legally binding ceremony to be had! In a beautiful homage to its romanticized New York predecessor, GG fused Florence + The Machine's cover of You've Got The Love with DERENA's wedding.

Every true Sex and the City fan squealed in jubilee at that moment. Including us. Ha!

Now, what's a lil' GG fairytale without some dramatic twist??

As Kristen Bell's voice wrapped the series up once and for all, Kill Me by The Pretty Reckless played to usher in a new era of anonymity. And we gotta say… using Little J's song for the finish was just SO touching!

Check out You've Got The Love above, and then treat yo'self to the library of highlights (as well as a sweet, sweet surprise) …AFTER THE JUMP!!!

David Byrne Suing Florida Governor

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersPolitik

And we don't blame him!

Talking Heads songwriter David Byrne filed a lawsuit against Florida Governor Charlie Crist on Monday for using their 1985 single Road to Nowhere in his senatorial campaign without permission.

The song was used in website and YouTube ads this year attacking the Republican primary opponent, Marco Rubio.

"I was pretty upset by that," said Byrne, who the ads pulled. But, "in my opinion the damage had already been done by it being out there. People that I knew had seen (the ad), so it had gotten around." The suit "is not about politics…It's about copyright and about the fact that it does imply that I would have licensed it and endorsed him and whatever he stands for."

Byrne's attorney, Lawrence Iser, said:

"I was fairly astonished that this soon after the settlement of Browne vs. McCain, yet another politician with national aspirations is doing this again. We just a year ago settled Browne vs. McCain, and the defendants there — including the Republican National Party — made a pledge…they would respect artists rights and license copyrighted works. To have it happen again in January is fairly shocking. They can't say, 'We didn't know that you have to get a license to use songs in commercials.'…They absolutely did know."

Byrne is seeking $1 million in damages, which is his fee for having his songs appear in commercials.
