LCD Soundsystem Too Expensive For Under The Dome

(Radio.com) CBS miniseries Under The Dome, based on the Stephen King novel of the same name, kicked off Monday night (June 24). As fans of the book will have noticed moments into the premiere, it doesn't follow the story too strictly, either in plot or in music selections.

When Radio.com spoke to Under The Dome Music Supervisor Ann Kline, she said that just as the writers diverge from the book, she does the same with her musical selections.

The first song mentioned in the novel itself is LCD Soundsystem's "North American Scum," an electronic anthem from Brooklyn's most tried and true trendsetters, a song Kline regrets not being able to use.

"We just couldn't afford it! We put it in the scene, it worked great! Hopefully you'll like what we put in instead. It would have been cool to use. So: yep, lots of changes from the book."

Slight spoiler here, for those who have read the book: the radio station in the novel is a Christian music station, and that's not the case on the series, where it's a rock station. In the first episode, a few songs are heard at the station. The first is "Goodbye GoGo" by a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist called Just Kait, AKA Kaitlyn DiBenedetto. The second is "Lying Around," by a young Australian band called the Cassette Kids. More.
