The 88 Score Sitcom Theme
Tracks from The 88 have made waves on television, video games and online, continuing a trend The 88 initiated upon the release of their first CD Kind of Light. The band's "Coming Home" was heard in the premiere episode of 90210 last season, while Gossip Girl showcased the piano-driven rocker "It's A Lot" from their third release, Not Only But Also. The super-charged track "Sons And Daughters" from the same album has challenged Rock Band 2 gamers, while "Hide Another Mistake" was featured on the hit series The O.C. and "All Cause of You" was used in the opening credits of the film, You, Me and Dupree starring Owen Wilson. In all, The 88 has licensed more than 60 tracks to films, television, commercials and other media in their short career.
Recently, The 88 became the first band to record a track entirely on an iPhone. "Love Is The Thing" is a previously released song that was released only on iTunes; within 24 hours it became the band's most downloaded song. USA Today, Kurt The Cyber Guy, the Los Angeles Times and countless blogs trumpeted The 88 and their innovative new way to record and distribute music entirely outside the mainstream music industry. More information on how The 88 recorded the track can be found here: http://the88.net/love.htm
