LC song on anther TV show.

Postby vern.silver » Fri May 15, 2009 3:56 am

Watching season finale of Lie To Me, and 'Who By Fire' was playing as the program started. First time I've heard it used: at least it wasn't Hellelujah!

Watched it last night and kept playing the beginning over and over again (recorded it). As you said Vern, Hallelujah it wasn't Hellelujah :lol: .

One day last week Madelaine Payeux dance me to the end of love was played during horseracing, not sure if it was C4 racing or At the races, what the song has to do with racing I don't know unless the horse "I'm yer man" was running :D incidently theres also a horse called Everybody knows and he won last time out.

And the choice was perfect as the show was about terrorism.

We are running behind in UK with 'Lie To Me'. I recorded the season Finale in my absence on Friday 7th on Sky 2 as I was away for the weekend (my future daughter in law's hen night - daytime in The Langley Cocktail Bar in London learning how to make cocktails - no education needed in drinking them, and then night in Chicago Rock in Sutton - great music and great fun).

Came as a shock that Leonard actually opened the episode with 'Who By Fire' :shock: as even though I knew his music was featured didn't remember it opened the show! Wow, great to hear Leonard himself featuring in one of these shows, it is almost always Jeff Buckley's version of Hallelujah or such.

It is repeated on Wednesday 12th Aug at 11 p.m. on Sky 2 for anyone who missed it who would also like to savour the moment.

WHAT A TREAT! :D :D :D
