The Music of The OC with Alexandra Patsavas + Death Cab for Cutie Lead Singer Ben Gibbard
Play • 1 hr 34 min

What would The OC be without the music? And you can talk music, without Alexandra Patsavas, the Emmy-nominated music supervisor from The OC! In this special episode, Rachel and Melinda learn all about what music supervision entails from the super fun to not-so-sexy but needed tasks. Find out which band passed on The OC, the song Alex was afraid might not pass, and one cover song Alex would chose to go back and put on the show today. The hosts highlight some of their favorite musical moments from the series, and ask Alex the stories behind them. 

Then, they are all joined by Seth Cohen’s favorite, Ben Gibbard, lead singer of Death Cab for Cutie. Hear what the singer has to say about the forever connection between his band and The OC.
