Ever-adventurous HBO managed to score a hit with an unconventional series about a family of morticians. The series' soundtrack is accordingly unorthodox, resembling either an ADD schizophrenic's mix tape or a particularly eclectic session by a late-night college DJ. Aside from the show's own creepy theme and a couple of remixes thereof, there's big-band swing (Peggy Lee), funk (Shuggie Otis), Cuban music (Orlando "Cachaito" Lopez) and more. On the rock side, there's everything from PJ Harvey's raw, wordless "One Too Many" to the post-Beck hip-pop of the Beta Band and the driving, Stonesy "Bohemian Like You" by the Dandy Warhols. If only commercial radio stations were as cool as this.
