Because I only have until Thursday to be obsessed about this season of So You Think You Can Dance, this week's New Music Monday is all about the music featured on the show.
if you're looking for an original song you won't hear anywhere else, SYTYCD pretty much guarantees you won't find that. You can safely bet that a song used on SYTYCD will be overused on the competition circuit this upcoming season. BUT it is a great place to find new artists!
The other option is to use a song that isn't used in a dance, but is used during a montage or other part of the show. SYTYCD seems to unearth good songs by little-known artists.
How To Find Your Song
So - you're looking for a song and didn't catch the split-second subtitle or you missed this week's episode. What to do? Go to the Fox website? Not much help. If only there was someone who tirelessly reviews each episode and posts a comprehensive list each week... Enter PureSYTYCD!
This blog, which is all about SYTYCD all the time, had a great list of music posted after each episode. If the song is available on iTunes, she even posts the link directly to the iTunes store!
You are our SYTYCD music savior! Thank you!
