Before today if someone had said “music lounge” I would immediately have pictured myself sitting in a comfortable chair drinking something cold and strong while a jazz band played in the background. Mind you, that’s where my mind pretty much always drifts whenever people start bothering me with their inane yammering. In fact, the Music Lounge is a new website from ABC which showcases the music featured on the likes of Ugly Betty, Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, and Grey’s Anatomy (the launch of the site coincides with the latter’s 100th episode). The Music Lounge will host performance footage, music videos, information about what tracks will be heard on forthcoming shows, and so on.
Over the past few years TV shows such as Grey’s have become an increasingly important way for what’s left of the music industry to promote its product and this seems like a smart move on everyone’s part. But check out the Music Lounge for yourself and tell us what you think.
