The Music of The OC Show Expained

The use of music in the shows is a tactic that is very much appreciated by many people who enjoy watching these shows. However, people don’t just pick any music and insert in the show. The use of music on any TV series had to be carefully crafted so that it can be made sure that they both blend so that they match. The use of music on The OC show gained a lot of acclaim from many of the audience who watched the series. The creator of the series Josh Schwartz wanted to incorporate music to make it a character of the show. For this reason, he had to get the services of a person who had the experience and knowledge to do just that. This is where Alexandra Patsavas has given the role the role being the supervisor of all the music that played in the show.

This music was composed by Christopher Tyng and the show was accreditation of involving many artists. It was shot in a top Calgary video production studio.  Many people felt that the show helped these artists to rise in their businesses. Also, there were many acts that made guest appearances on the OC show. There were those others that premiered in some of their singles in the various episodes of the show. When they were selecting the music, they made sure that it suited the show that being released. They made these selections in some ways. One of them was through writing the music in the script. The other way was just to make a selection of a song and make sure that it fit into a scene.

This was introduced into the second season. It was brought in as the concert venue as well as night club on the pier. This place was brought in as a reference to Beverly Hills and one of the new characters in the show was working in that place. This place had been modeled to look like some of the famous clubs like the troubadour in the Los Angeles. This was a good place where they could shoot the video even in the night at the pier.Alongside having many of the guest performances on the show, there were also lots of music tracks on the show. This helped to promote most of the artistes who were features in the tracks. Considering that the show had commanded a big audience, then these people were also selling their talents to huge number of people.

This show was heavily praised for its music. Many people loved just how the creators of the show had been able to incorporate music into the show with great skill.

Impact of OC Show on Society

The OC show is a TV series that received widespread reception in the US. Many people loved it quite a lot, and this gave it a large audience more than many other shows had received. According to some of the findings done by some of the analysis firms, this show was able to attract an average of 8.43 million viewers. The amazing thing is that the audience increased more with time. This show had increased its viewers from its premiere to up to 17 percent. The impact of the OC show on the society was increasing considering that many viewers increased with time.

What was the targeted audience for the show?

This is a show that mostly targeted the female teens mostly. This audience remained somewhat significant considering that the show had somehow declined it its audience. This decrease was showed by the reduced viewers that the show received when it aired its third season. However, this decline was attributed to the airing of the American Idol show. In many instances, a TV series that is released after a major show has usually been aired receives a lesser audience than before. However, for the OC show, the results were somehow exceptional. This is because, despite the fact that viewers declined, the audience was far much larger than those other shows with a similar occurrence ever had.

In the orange country

Before the show was aired, many of the residents of the Orange County residents referred to it as the O.C. This abbreviation was used by many of the local radio shows and also some television stations. Although at first it did not get the attention of these people, later on they embraced it and started using it quite often in various settings. Even the county supervisor by the name Chris Nor by wanted to change the name of a local airport and start calling it the OC Airport. All of this showed the great reception that the show had received and the many supporters that the show had attracted.

In the popular culture

The mentioning of the OC show had been seen even in other TV shows that were airing during those periods. This showed that many of the people had appreciated the show. Many of other characters such as The War at Home and many others had characters that were great fans of the show. There are those shows where even some of the airing TV series had characters referring to their home country as The OC. This was a proof just how much the people had embraced the show and even the characters in it.


This is a show called the OC. When the show was being planned before its release, it was to be named Juiced County. This was because there was a show that was released and it bore the name before the airing of the show.

Poetic Tribute by Elissa Farkas:

In the middle of the summer, not too long ago
Everyone started buzzing about “the next 90210”

Beaches and babes; surfer dudes and sun,
The O.C. turned up the heat – California…here we come!

A guilty pleasure so deliciously good,
From the moment Sandy Cohen met Ryan Atwood.

Sandy took Ryan from Chino, to the land of the filthy rich,
The mythology began – “Welcome to The O.C, Bitch!”
