I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need

Lately, I've been getting a lot of hits from people looking for some song or another that was played on the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy. I can't blame them. I'm a huge of the show and after almost every episode I find myself googling lyrics to figure out the name of a song that was played.

The last two episodes have had especially good music. Everyone I know who watches the show has been asking about the last song they played on episode 15 ("Break On Through"). The song's called "Scratch" by Kendall Payne. I know nothing about her, but I love the song. I might have to check out more from her.

Last week's episode ("It's The End Of The World") had a great song, too. As it was playing, I heard Chris Martin and wondered if this was some new Coldplay tune. Then I thought I heard Michael Stipe and I was all sorts of confused. It turns out Stipe and Martin recorded a song written by Joseph Arthur called "In The Sun" to raise money for Hurricane Katrina relief. It's really beautiful and the money goes to a good cause so go here or to iTunes and get it. Now!

In other news, the Grammys are on tonight and I could really care less. It's just going to be sad if Mariah Carey picks up a bunch of awards. When did she become the poplar underdog? I've been waiting for that chick's downfall for years and now she's the critics' favorite? Whatever. I have no idea how they vote on the Grammys but it's obviously wrong.

Kendall Payne is really good, but judging from your taste in music, I'm guessing you won't be thrilled. She's actually a Christian singer and while her lyrics are incredible "Scratch" is probaly her best song to date.
