TV Music: The Two Times "Anything Could Happen" Was Perfect and One Time It Wasn't
Ellie Goulding's "Anything Could Happen" is golden—uplifting but not barfy cheesy, sweet but not cloying, catchy but general enough to fit any situation. So of course TV shows have used it, to varying degrees of success. Take a look:
Nick holding the elevator doors open just as the song comes on—HOLY SHIZNIT. But I'm getting ahead of myself. Last week's "Virgins" episode had the gang talking about their firsts, with a special participation by the adorable Dylan O'Brien (Stiles on Teen Wolf). Told in flashbacks, it was hilarious and easily the best episode this season IMHO. By the end of the episode, Jess is on her way to meet her first—BUT NOT IF NICK CAN HELP IT! Nick and Jess aren't my OTP, so I think I can say this objectively: that moment when he holds the elevator and carries her is perfection doubly perfected by the perfect use of the song. "Let's not think about it." Real smooth, Miller.
