You heard it when: Old English Butler Reginald followed the trail of one-hundred dollar bills to Jay Hixton’s dead body.
This song worked because: Hixton was a lottery winner, so the money thing made sense. Also, the song is very cheerful, and, occasionally, something cheerful — in this case having millions of dollars at your disposal — can lead to something that’s kind of a drag, like getting shot in the chest.
Myers’ music has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty and Private Practice. You can listen to more here.
Artist: The Page Brothers Song: "Move That Ass (Get On the Floor)"
You heard it when:Beckett & Co. interrupted the Page Brothers’ studio session.
This song worked because: It is lyrically stunning and undeniably catchy. So catchy, in fact, that Beckett tried to learn the ditty on her guitar at the end of the episode (bottle of red wine at her side, natch). Sample lyrics:
Sexy as hell as I come through the door 12 gauge shotgun, get on the floor Jump on the counter, let off a round You wet yourself as you hit the ground Take command with my outside voice We’re robbin’ this bitch, she ain’t got no choice
Life-long criminals, the Page Brothers relocated from Florida to New York City to beat up a drug dealer as a favor to their friend, a recent lottery winner and murder victim whom they once attempted to rob. They’ve "been bouncin’ tunes ever since."
