We gave it a C

TV sitcoms have lousy taste in music. First Friends commissioned that annoying Rembrandts song (”I’ll Be There for You”). Now Party of Five chooses ”Closer to Free”, the one cheesy tune the BoDeans ever wrote for its opening song and releases it as a single. The song, from their 1993 LP Go Down Slow, has the chirpy, Beatlesque pleasures of a decent jingle. But a band this good deserves to be known for something better.
