Behind Anatomy's Killer Tunes

"If I lay here, if I just lay here. Would you lie with me . . "

Ever wondered what spawn of Satan is the music supervisor over at Grey's Anatomy—lining the pockets of Snow Patrol, throwing bones to the Fray?

It is she, Alexandra Patsavas, also in charge of The O.C. soundtrack, in case you were wondering WTF about that too. The Star-Telegram calls her "arguably the most influential woman in music in America these days. . . . Because she's been in the business for so long, Patsavas says, she gets about 500 music submissions a week, including music from overseas. In addition, she hears bands live and seeks out regional bands with buzz."

One Grey's Anatomy blog asked Patsavas for a playlist, and she kindly obliged. U ready to rawk?
