Alexandra Patsavas is music supervisor for The O.C. and Grey's Anatomy. A Grammy winner for Season Two of the hit nighttime medical soap-opera, Patsavas is credited with building synergy between Grey's (aired on Walt Disney's ABC network) and the bands it features -- an attraction in themselves.
"Chasing Cars" -- used during Denny's tragic death scene -- was the No. 1 downloaded song on Apple Computer's iTunes the day after the three-hankie Grey's episode aired. The song was then quickly embraced by radio stations & Viacom's MTV -- the reverse of the usual process of musical success.
Patsavas created, especially for CNBC.com, an exclusive, customized songlist:
