As my daughter perused a list of episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, I noticed something unusual in your titles. Most are named after a well-known rock song, such as “Let It Be” and “A Hard Day’s Night” by The Beatles.
Several episodes took their title from REM songs, such as “Losing My Religion” and “Begin the Begin.” Actually, a REM song served as the title for different episodes of Grey’s Anatomy, which had one called “It’s the End of the World” and its sequel called “As We Know It.”
The show used many more songs by other artists as titles for the episodes, including Bob Dylan’s “Tangled Up In Blue” which served as another title, as did The Doors’ “Break On Through” and “Owner of a Lonely Heart.” of Yes. Also used were “First Cut Is The Deepest” and “Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head”, as well as “If Tomorrow Never Comes” and “Shake Your Groove Thing”.
Here are ten other TV shows that have taken song titles for their episodes.
