Exclusive: One Tree Hill Music Supervisor Lindsay Wolfington Fills In The Blanks

16 05 2010

Tomorrow night’s episode of One Tree Hill will be the last of the seventh season–and possibly the last of the series. As the show’s music supervisor, Lindsay Wolfington has been a constant presence throughout more than 150 episodes, carefully choosing the songs that make us laugh, cry and spend hours on iTunes.

Wolfington was kind enough–and fun enough–to play a quick game of “Fill In The Blank.”

TeenDramaWhore: _____ is the song most often mentioned to me by One Tree Hill fans.

Lindsay Wolfington: “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS in the 100th episode [Episode 5.12, Hundred] is probably the most asked about song on OTH – why was it changed out after the first airing. I’ve explained that legally, we only were able to get rights to air it on TV in the U.S., not for the rest of the world or on DVD. Some other fan favorites mentioned to me often are Led Zeppelin’s “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You” [in Episode 3.22, The Show Must Go On] and maybe “More Than Anyone” by Gavin DeGraw [in Episode 1.21, The Games That Play Us and Episode 3.22, The Show Must Go On].

TDW: I’ll always regret not using _____ in the One Tree Hill scene where _____

Wolfington: No regrets! One funny story though: I sent in Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” as background/party music at Haley [Bethany Joy Galeotti] and Nathan’s [James Lafferty] wedding at the end of season 3 [Episode 3.22, The Show Must Go On]. Mark [Schwahn, creator] and Joe [Davola, executive producer] didn’t like the song and pulled it out. In the end, we probably wouldn’t have been able to afford it anyway because Led Zeppelin cleared and took up most of the budget, but it was funny that about a month later, it was the biggest song on the radio and a few months after that, it won the Grammy for Record Of The Year. The nice thing is that even Mark and Joe look back on it and think “whoops!” Again, it might have been cut anyway because of budget, so no need to harp on it. It’s just nice that they were able to say “hey, Lindsay actually knows what she’s talking about!”

TDW: The hardest One Tree Hill scene to score was _____.

Wolfington: I’ve mentioned a couple times that the coda where we used Keane’s “She Has No Time” [Episode 2.13, Between Order And Randomness The Hero Dies In This One] was really hard for a while. It was a long coda and I kept trying song after song, but nothing was great. Then when I put Keane to the picture, it was perfect.

TDW: A band I’ve never admitted to liking is _____.

Wolfington: I’m not ashamed to admit if I like a cheesy band or song! If you are looking for an embarrassing song that I like, I would say Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping.” It is killer on the dance floor! I love it because people just dance however they want and don’t think about it because the song is goofy, and that’s when people really have fun, I think.

Come back next Sunday for another exclusive interview!
