This article lists some great examples of the music used in Season 2 of NBC's "Life". It covers my top ten song moments from Season 2 in the order they appeared. It seems like nowadays every new, old or little known artist is getting exposure on television, and the show introduced audiences to a number of great artists and songs which complemented what was happening on screen.

The list includes such artists as Gram Rabbit, Priscilla Ahn, Low, Eastern Conference Champions, Supergrass, Angus & Julia Stone, The Magic Numbers, Honeyhoney, Shaun Lee's Ping Pong Orchestra, & Hayden.

A list of songs from Season 1, and a summary of the show and zen quotes, can be found to the right.

For any Life fans out there, feel free to suggest any of your favourite songs or song moments from the show that I might have missed.

1) Devil's Playground by Gram Rabbit

This song introduces the audience to the first crime scene of season 2 involving dead bodies in trunks. Its haunting, catchy and fits the scene perfectly.

4) The Box by Eastern Conference Champions

Crews inhales an unknown substance and starts having hallucinations of Jennifer. Tidwell helps Reese while she is having issues with her father. A great song to accompany some funny scenes when Crews is intoxicated.

6) Mango Tree by Angus & Julia Stone

The perfect indie folk song for Crews' fruit obsession. The aftermath of taking down Arthur Tins and a day of earthquakes. The end of the episode when Reese and Tidwell connect, and Crews looks over his bullet-riddled car.

8) Little Toy Gun by HoneyHoney

Crews throws a pool party; Reese and Tidwell at the gun range; gun mix-up; confronting Fluffy. This song works great for an extended sequence of badge bunny skinny dipping, firing range antics, and eventually an arrest.
