Standout Songs from Nashville Season One

Are you guys watching Nashville yet? If not, you should be! Though it started off a little rocky (at least in my humble opinion), by the second or third episode it got real good. The finale was last week, but I’m pretty sure you can find the entire first season on Hulu, abc.go, and/or itunes. Get thee to the internet, stat.

If my seal of approval is not enough to convince you to watch, you can still enjoy the show’s original music. There are a number of singer-actors (hi, dream job) on the show, and they are all good. However, the obvious standouts (for me) are Scarlett O’Connor (played by Clare Bowen) and Gunnar Scott (played by Sam Palladio). Clare and Sam are actually both Australian, but they nail the twangy accents and country music swagger. I could not do any better, and I’m from Texas, y’all. Of all the songs that the show puts out, Scarlett and Gunnar’s are consistently my favorites.

Not only do these two characters have incredible voices; they have some crazy sexual tension and a love triangle to boot. This complicated relationship makes their lovelorn duets all the more interesting if you watch the show. Even if you don’t like country music you should still check out these songs. They actually fall more into the folksy/singer-songwriter genre and are, in my opinion, very well written tunes.

Since you might still be plowing through the zillions of You Tube videos I posted on Sunday, I’m only going to share three songs with you today. Quality over quantity, aight? Even if you watch all three and don’t find a song you like, you will have wasted less than 15 minutes of your life. Buuut, I think you will like them all. Low risk, high reward. Kinda like the lotto!

Without further ado, my three favorite Scarlett/Gunnar songs from Nashville, Season 1.

If I Didn’t Know BetterThis is the song that begat my obsession. I think it was their first duet, and it’s rull good.

Fade Into YouThis is possibly my favorite of the three. I say possibly because it’s so hard to choose. My favorite line is, “There’ll be no trace that one was once two…after I fade into you.” Oh yeah.

When The Right One Comes Along – Such a sweet solo by Gunnar about how you’ll know when you’ve found the one (ahem, Scarlett). My favorite line in this song is, “A million moments full of sweet relief when the right one comes along.” In the words of Joey Tribbiani, call me a sap! 

You can find all of these songs for download on itunes. Just search “Nashville Cast”. “Nashville Cast” is the artist on all of the songs from the show.

What’s your favorite new TV show this season? New meaning new to TV or just new to you. Last year I discovered Dexter, Homeland, True Blood, and Girls. This year it’s definitely Nashville.

  7. नहीं बच सके भगवान भी शनिदेव से.. भोलेनाथ शिव को लगी शनि की दशा, पढ़ें कथा पौराणिक कथा के अनुसार एक समय शनि देव भगवान शंकर के धाम हिमालय पहुंचे। उन्होंने अपने गुरुदेव भगवान शंकर को प्रणाम कर उनसे आग्रह किया,” हे प्रभु! मैं कल आपकी राशि में आने वाला हूं अर्थात मेरी वक्र दृष्टि आप पर पड़ने वाली है।
    शनिदेव की बात सुनकर भगवान शंकर हतप्रभ रह गए और बोले, “हे शनिदेव! आप कितने समय तक अपनी वक्र दृष्टि मुझ पर रखेंगे।”
    शनिदेव बोले, “हे नाथ! कल सवा प्रहर के लिए आप पर मेरी वक्र दृष्टि रहेगी। शनिदेव की बात सुनकर भगवन शंकर चिंतित हो गए और शनि की वक्र दृष्टि से बचने के लिए उपाय सोचने लगे।”
    शनि की दृष्टि से बचने हेतु अगले दिन भगवन शंकर मृत्युलोक आए। भगवान शंकर ने शनिदेव और उनकी वक्र दृष्टि से बचने के लिए एक हाथी का रूप धारण कर लिया। भगवान शंकर को हाथी के रूप में सवा प्रहर तक का समय व्यतीत करना पड़ा तथा शाम होने पर भगवान शंकर ने सोचा, अब दिन बीत चुका है और शनिदेव की दृष्टि का भी उन पर कोई असर नहीं होगा। इसके उपरांत भगवान शंकर पुनः कैलाश पर्वत लौट आए।
