From ''The O.C.'' (Death Cab for Cutie, Imogen Heap) to ''Grey's Anatomy'' (''How to Save a Life'') to ''Buffy'' (Aimee Mann, Dandy Warhols) you could make some pretty great playlists with the songs these shows have highlighted
Because it's on MTV, you can hardly get through an episode of the vapid reality series without a current Top 40 jam playing (and, natch, a quick infographic flashes on screen, letting the impressionable masses know what it is). The theme song is Natasha Bedingfield's coming-of-age tune ''Unwritten,'' and more than a handful of her other tracks have been cribbed for background music, too.
