The producers for So You Think You Can Dance consistently do a wonderful job picking interesting music. And they do their viewers the further courtesy of showing the name of the song and artist on-screen MTV-style at the beginning of each number. I always have a pen and paper at hand when watching the competition so that I can jot down the songs I like for later downloading.
The auditions portion of the show also features great music selections. Unfortunately, since the music is chosen by those auditioning, there’s no opportunity to communicate the song information to the TV audience. It’s a real bummer. I’ve often wished that some SYTYCD superfan would take the trouble to record the music, track down each song, and blog about it.
Wish no more. The superfan and their blog have been found: Emilie at Pure So You Think You Can Dance
Here are links to the song lists from each audition episode:
Thank you, Emilie!
