TV Jukebox: 'House,' 'Pretty Little Liars,' 'One Tree Hill,' and more music-on-TV moments

Even though love songs account for about 90 percent of the market (a statistic I just made up as I listened to Adele and Snow Patrol on repeat), it’s been a while since we had a good line-up of serious heart flutterers here on TV Jukebox. From a rain-soaked reunion (Pretty Little Liars) to a synchronized swimming-themed proposal (Glee), it was a good week for all things gushy and gooey. Some were searching for love (Private Practice, Happy Endings), while others were letting it go (Gossip Girl, The Secret Circle).

Of course, that doesn’t mean there wasn’t room for a some rumbling (Teen Mom 2), reconciliation (House), revenge (Hell on Wheels), strip club shenanigans (One Tree Hill, CSI), and straight-up struttin’ (House of Lies). All of which is without mentioning the most disturbing use of ’80s soft rock to come down the pipeline is quite some time. Thanks for that, Criminal Minds! See our latest picks below.

Woody Guthrie sings on NYC streets: Check out a cool photo gallery from 1943

woody-guthrieImage Credit: Life.comThis Sunday, Oct. 3, is the anniversary of Woody Guthrie‘s death at age 55 in 1967. In honor of the great radical folkie, LIFE.com has put together an amazing gallery of photos from their archives.

Taken in 1943 by photographer Eric Schaal, these rare images show Guthrie singing to the young and old citizens of New York City in subway cars, pubs, and playgrounds, accompanied only by his fascist-slaying acoustic guitar. Everyday places like these, rather than a spotlit stage, were his true element. How many rock stars can say the same today?

Yet Guthrie’s fearless protest music has inspired generations of activists and singers, including many famous names. Without him, the careers of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Wilco, Phil Ochs, and Billy Bragg would have looked very different, to name just a few. So take a moment today to browse these photos and remember a late legend in his prime.
