This is the third episode that features music
exclusively by the same artist. The first two were
episodes 2-4: The House, with music by Johnny Cash, and
2-20: Kensington, with music by John Mellencamp. (Edit)
In an interview, executive producer, creator, and this
episode's writer Meredith Stiehm said that the Bruce
Springsteen songs were chosen first and then the story
designed around them. Because Springsteen does not
usually permit TV shows to use his music, the creator of
the show personally wrote to him to get a permission to
use his songs. It can cost as much as $20,000 to use
just one song by an elite artist, but in this case they
obviously had to pay more than that for the permissions.
Original Airdate: January 8, 2006.
This episode features music exclusively by Bruce
Springsteen from the era 1980-1988.
