"Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey - The Sopranos
Glee used "Don't Stop Believin'" memorably throughout its run, but it's the infamous, final scene from The Sopranos Season 6 Episode 21, deliberately shot and edited to the Journey song, that really haunts TV watchers.
"Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" by They Might be Giants - Tiny Toons Adventures
Plucky's madcap treasure hunt set to "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" in Tiny Toons Adventures Season 1 Episode 51 turned a lot of young cartoon watchers into They Might Be Giants fans. The They Might Be Giants' version has also been put to inspired use in Bunheads Season 1 Episode 6 and The Umbrella Academy Season 1 Episode 1.
"White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane - The Handmaid's Tale
It's unlikely any other song could capture the surreal horror of walking into Jezebel's better than Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" in The Handmaid's Tale Season 1 Episode 8. The song has also been used in Big Little Lies Season 1 Episode 4, Queen of the South Season 1 Episode 3 and Supernatural Season 2 Episode 10.
"Maneater" by Hall & Oates - Will & Grace
Hall & Oates' "Maneater" can be heard in Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 15, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 2 Episode 3, and Chuck Season 1 Episode 7, but it's in Will & Grace Season 8 Episode 15 where the iconic pop duo shows up to play the song in person.
"Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain & Tennille - DC's Legends of Tomorrow
This Captain & Tennille song has a reputation for being a mushy love song, which suited the use of it in Arrested Development Season 1 Episode 1 and iZombie Season 2 Episode 19. DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 1 made it sound awesome as it played while some of the Legends got into a bar fight in the 70s.
"Never Let Me Go" by Florence + The Machine - The Vampire Diaries
As someone watching this scene without a horse in the Stelena vs. Delena wars, Damon and Elena kissing to Florence + the Machine's "Never Let Me Go" in The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 19 was hot. "Never Let Me Go" was also played in the opening of One Tree Hill Season 9 Episode 11 and the closing of CSI: NY Season 8 Episode 9.
