Alrighty, if you're still checking out this thread, here's my recommendations based on the Garden State album and some of the Scrubs CDs. Sorry if there's some stuff you've already heard before.

1. Don't Panic - Coldplay
this is from "parachutes"-a great CD and definitely worth picking up if you don't have it. I also like their other 2 albums as well and highly recommend them.

2. Caring Is Creepy - The Shins
"Oh, inverted world" is one of my favorite CDs and both Shins tracks on Garden State are from that album

3. In The Waiting Line - Zero 7
One of the best electronic-ish bands. I am a huge fan of them and recommend picking up their 2 LPs whose names escape me. They also did a remix album, which has varying results. IF you like underground-ish hip hop, download the remix of "somersault" featuring MF Doom. Also, Zero 7 is very similar to the french group "air," they did the soundtrack to Virgin Suicides, their newest CD is "Talkie Walkie" which is good, but "Moon Safari" is their absolute best and one of the my favorite albums ever, there isn't a bad track on it.

4. New Slang - The Shins
I hear they have a new album on the way, Chutes too narrow is also a great CD by the way. Before the Shins, the singer and some of the other bandmembers released some stuff, including a full-length, under the name "flake music" I haven't got a chance to hear it yet, but I hear it's good.

5. I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You - Colin Hay
Colin Hay, also featured in Scrubs a handful of time, writes some great music. I forget the name of the CDs of his I have, but they're great and worth checking out if you like his sound.

6. Blue Eyes - Cary Brothers
I love Cary Brothers, but this isn't one of my favorites. Get both of his EPs and also download a bunch of FREE MP3s on his website-"California Bound" is my favorite.

7. Fair - Remy Zero
Ok, I don't know much about Remy Zero. I read a review of one of their albums and it got lackluster ratings. Sorry, I got nothing-I love this song, though.

8. One Of These Things First - Nick Drake
Ah yes, Nick Drake. In short-he released 3 CDs between 1969-1974 (I think) before committing suicide(some say it was an accident-he OD'd on antidepressants). This track is from "Bryter Layter," one of my favorite albums of his. Every track is orchestrated and has a backing band, unlike "Pink Moon" which is only Nick singing and playing guitar (except some piano on the 1st track). His first CD, "Five leaves left" is sort of a mix of the latter 2 and is also wonderful-they're also under $9 at deepdiscountcd.com, which is where I picked them up recently. And if you become a Nick Drake fanatic like me, 2 more CDs were released-don't listen to them until you check out his first 3, since they're not as whole as his first 3 CDs and include alternate versions, b-sides, etc...

9. Lebanese Blonde - Thievery Corporation
Thievery Corp. has makes some great music. Dare I say check out Morcheeba, Lamb and Morcheeba? It's slightly less upbeat than this track, but I really enjoy it, especially "Gabriel" by Lamb

10. The Only Living Boy In New York - Simon & Garfunkel
Probably the most popular group on this CD, I probably don't need to elaborate\I don't know that much about them

11. Such Great Heights - Iron and Wine
cover originally done by the Postal Service, check out their CD, Give Up(I think that's what it's called)

12. Let Go - Frou Frou
Like someone earlier said, check out their CD and also the singer's solo stuff (imogene Heap)

13. Winding Road - Bonnie Somerville
I guess she was dating Zach Braff at the time when asked to record this song-this is one of my favorite tracks on the CDs. As far as I can tell, she hasn't released anything else. She is on some TV show I don't watch (law and order or something, I can't recall)

Hope any of that helps.

One band I remember hearing on Scrubs but I don't see on the CD is Del Amitri. I particularly recommend Twisted . I don't exactly remember which song was played on the show, but I believe it was "Tell Her This." They may have even featured a couple songs over the years. Anyway, I've been loving this album since the mid-90's. Buy it.

You shouldn't argue with yourself.

Just going by the songs I'm already familiar with, that's a damn good song. I know that if I made a movie, I'd find a place to put that Fiona Apple song on there. As well, as the R. Wainwright song. But even the others, also.

Siobhan Donaghy's album is amazing. Produced by the great Cameron McVey, it's very strange in a good way. I wasn't sure with her at first since she was in girl group (Sugababes) for their debut only before she ditched them to go to the bathroom and never came back. I was a fan of the group post-debut. Anyways, she dropped any pop pretences and made a debut that is part minimalistic rock and part electronic music. She even samples Massive Attack in one song. Her voice is georgous, it was her input in said popgroup that made them much repected rather than ridiculed. Get this album by any means since you will have to go to say Tower Records to buy it since it's an import. Sadly, she wasn't sought after in her native England and now has a cult following. Probably because of this, I was able to buy it here for $15 dollars.

You know there are *ways* to get all the music from Scrubs season by season.

If you dig this stuff you might look into it.
