Music Featured on "So You Think You Can Dance" on Fox TV

Recently I'd learned, through a friend on FaceBook, that my song "Needle & Spoon" was featured on last weeks episode of So You Think You Can Dance on Fox TV ( Season 8, Episode 10, airdate 6/29/ 2011 ). This was the Top 16 Show, and the song (sans lead vocal track) ran for 90 seconds over the rehearsal scene with dancers Ryan Ramirez and Ricky Jaime, aka Ryan & Ricky.

This beautiful dance was choreographed by Sonya Tayeh , who fans of SYTYCD will contest is THE best on the show. If you watch this piece unfold I think you'll see why.  I was touched by how closely her description of the emotion behind the dance fit the context of my song... love and loss. I'd never previously heard "With Every Heartbeat" by Robyn, but the transition from "Needle & Spoon" gave the entire scene a certain grace, in my opinion.

Have a look: (song starts at :42 mark)

Now have a listen to the full version, with vocal track:
