This CD includes an additional bonus track.
Lest you think HBO's magnificent mortuary "dramedy" has no more cards to play after its Golden Globe coup, the fine folks at Six Feet Under
go and unearth one of TV's finest soundtracks. Proving true to the show's characters, the music here represents high camp (Julie London's "Yummy Yummy Yummy", the dearly departed Peggy Lee's "I Love Being Here with You"), sexy chill-out-room music, gritty rock, plus a dose of classic soul and folk. It's easy to see rebellious Claire secluded in her room, jamming to the Dandy Warhols' cagey "Bohemian Like You", while, say, Nate and Brenda devour an expensive bottle of Pinot Grigio while listening to the ethereal buzz band Zero 7 ("Distractions") and muted dancefloor beats from Lamb ("Heaven"). These are songs that mesh with, rather than intrude upon the scenes of LA's other dark side. Hey, we all have to go sometime; it may as well be to the tune of a great song. --Kristy Martin
