Updated by moderator NatashaFatale:
@CovertAffairs twitter announced July 23rd, 2010: We're listening to you! By popular demand, here's the soundtrack listing from this week's ep. (we'll do this each week!) http://ow.ly/2fJ9Y

Covert Affairs Song List by Episode link: http://www.usanetwor.../musiclist.html


If you are unable to find the song there, please post your question in this thread and hopefully one of the many helpful members here can see if they can find it - it helps to be as descriptive as possible when asking (at what scene in episode, lyrics you might have heard). Please read through this thread for additional song info & links.


COVERT AFFAIRS -SEASON 1

Promos

"3" by Britney Spears


Covert Affairs "The Spy Next Door" promo: http://www.youtube.c...LbVYVi6-V8&NR=1
"Dog Days Are Over" by Florence + The Machine

Covert Affairs promo "She's good... " http://video.usanetw...s-good/v1243313
"Man of the People" by the band Middle Distance Runner, their site: http://www.middledistancerunner.com/, and iTunes link


Covert Affairs promo commercial "Hailed by Critics": http://video.usanetw...ritics/v1241952
Music sounds very very similar to the Intro song "Can You Save me" by Apple Trees & Tangerines

But to me, it sounds just slightly different enough (and taking out the techno bit in the middle, that's definitely not the "Can you save me song") for me to think that they composed it 'sound' similar, but just different enough so they don't have to pay royalties on it. And especially since there are no lyrics in the "Hailed by Critics" promo, it's harder to tell, and also makes me think that it might be custom made



Theme Song
"Can You Save Me" by Apple Trees And Tangerines (Song At Start Of Show Theme)
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=o5JcJykjHNE

****SEE POSTS later in this thread for more recent updates/for episode song updates**** <-----read this

Here are some tips to find songs :

1) Ask/look on this site: heardontv.com - people post questions & answers for Covert Affairs songs.

2) look on this site: http://www.tunefind....ffairs/season-2

3)
Asking the Covert Affairs people twitter - sometimes it's easier to get answers from them. See the twitter list below & the Covert Affairs Season 2 co-producer, Gavin Barclay (mentioned above) seems to be tweeting a few songs from Season 2 - you can try tweeting him to ask about songs - if you don't have twitter you can let me know & I'll ask for you.

Original post:
Can anyone tell me who sings the song that they're playing in the preview? I know I've seen the video (one woman, wild costumes, lots of clapping, bizarre) but was too distracted by the video to realize it was a pretty good song. Thanks
!

OK I give up. Perhaps someone can contact the music supervisor for the show and ask him or her? Either that or perhaps USA_Admin can help. I tried Shazam, I tried listening really, really intently neither worked so it's up for someone else to find it now.

There's this song by Saving Jane, called Super Girl that would be the best ever theme music for this TV show!

It's exactly the kind of 'girl-next-door-turned-spy' song this show could use. Don't know if the producers pay any attention to these conversations, but if you do, you should seriously look this up, it's perfect. Plus it's just an awesome song for anyone who likes these kinds of shows.

Please don't think your questions have been lost.

All the music related threads have been merged into this one thread.

It's a good idea to keep like topics together whenever possible.

The forum software controls the format of merged threads. Regardless of what you do, they're put in chronological order. That's why the "Anyone Know?" thread wasn't moved to the Q&A thread. Not only would that post have appeared first, the title of the thread would have become "Anyone Know?" because it was created before the Q&A thread. At least the Covert Affairs Soundtrack thread was the first one created and the title works for any posts about the show's music.

ETA: The same thing happened with the merged Jesse threads on BN. Check it out. All the posts are in chronological order.

I sent PM's to everyone who created one of the music threads that were merged. As of right now, none of those members have read them or been back on the forum yet.

That blows that your limited to the timeline. It would be cooler if you could do it by groupings, you know? Like all the preview questions and answers together in order, that one random one by itself and then the other soundtrack info that GetBurned posted. So are you the mod here now then if you're merging threads? The reason I ask is because a few days ago you didn't seem at all interested in watching the show, as you stated in the other forum so I wondered what had changed.

Actually, I'm the moderator who merged the threads after getting a couple of requests. Being so new, this forum still has an uncluttered look and feel. But as it gets near to being aired, the threads will increase. Trying to keep down the number of threads about the same topic helps in trying to keep down the confusion.

It would be nice to group related questions together in one thread, but we don't have that ability. However, even without merging separate threads into one, that is what happens sometimes. There will be several posts following the same train of thought, then someone responds to an earlier post that was about a different angle of the same topic. Quoting the post that you are responding to at least lets people follow the flow of the various conversations.
