Borrowing songs from other shows

alvin and the chipmunksRecently I mentioned that an episode of Prison Break used the song "Teardrop" by Massive Attack during a montage. It just so happens that "Teardrop" is also the theme to another FOX program, House. Taking this concept to the next level, TVgasm asks what it would be like if segments of other programs began to use songs from other TV shows. They have a hilarious clip featuring a few scenes, including one from 24, and footage of a convoy being attacked in the Sudan which doesn't seem quite as scary with the Alvin and the Chipmunks theme playing over it. Anyway, you should check it out. Meanwhile, I'll be kicking myself for not thinking of this idea first.

The only problem is that I don't really feel as if House has any claim to that song either. I mean, it's almost 10 years old now and it's just an all-around good song - a classic of the late 90s, if you will.

It's like saying What About Brian borrowed from CSI because they used "Baba O Riley" by The Who. Or that Six Feet Under borrowed from The OC by using a Death Cab for Cutie song. The songs belong to the bands, not the shows.
