The Cue Sheet Podcast, Episode 8: The Music of My So-Called Life

music of my so-called life

The Cue Sheet Podcast is going back to high school! We’re just waiting for Tino to show up and give us a ride.

After going on some futile adventures with MTV Cops last month, we’ve moved forward in time a decade to talk about the songs featured on the short-lived ABC teen drama, My So-Called Life. The show centers around teenager Angela Chase, played by Claire Danes, as she navigates high school, relationships, and feelings. It only aired for one season, but it leaves a lasting legacy, which includes its great, ’90s-era soundtrack. We talk about our favorite musical moments from the show—including The Cranberries, R.E.M., Buffalo Tom and Haddaway—a handful of notable guest appearances from a few bands from the era, and even plans for the second season that never came to be. But mostly, it’s about the music.

Listen to our music of My So-Called Life episode below, and check out our playlist of songs in our favorite moments from the show.

Share some of your favorite My So-Called Life music moments in the comments, and let us know if there’s a show you’d like us to cover on a future episode!
