Think about the last song you heard on the radio and how it made you feel? Now think about it in the context of it you ever heard it in a TV show.
Would the scene be happy or sad? Would it be the climactic scene or an opening scene? Are the lyrics ironic for what you imagine? Musical scores and soundtracks are vital to setting the tone for what an audience should be feeling and even sometimes subverting it.
Whether it's a montage or a pivotal choice in a television show's season, the right song makes all the difference, and there are so many tv shows right now doing spectacular things with music.
Often times, you'll find that slow ballads playing over dramatic scenes are the ones you might be drawn to, but there are also cases of upbeat music enhancing a show's atmosphere.
