Karen's Cafe...looking out.

"At this moment there are 6,470,818,671 people in the world. Some are running scared. Some are coming home. Some tell lies to make it through the day. Others are just not facing the truth. Some are evil men, at war with good. And some are good, struggling with evil. Six billion people in the world, six billion souls. And sometimes... all you need is one."
-Peyton Sawyer

My favorite TV show is One Tree Hill.  The mix of art, music, drama and passion that this show contains is what separates it from every other show I've ever seen.  The story line is so creative and original...and the writing behind it is incredible.  Each character fits their role perfectly and really embraces their style and personality on screen.  Lucas... the heart of the show...he discovers passions, love and a friendships that he never thought were possible.  Peyton, a tortured artist who is truly just searching for peace and contentment...and is probably the character that will remind you of your best friend....she's selfless...and so passionate about art and music. Nathan...Lucas's enemy turned brother and best friend....brave and strong...and he finds the true meaning of family when he meets the love of his life, Haley.  Haley...eventually becomes my favorite character.....adorable smart girl....amazing singer/songwriter...Nathan's soul mate...Lucas's best friend from the beginning...."the glue." beautiful, confident and has the biggest heart...she finds her true family within her friends....artistic in fashion...lonely, but so, so loved. 

If you've never seen this should start from Season 1 and trust will never be the same.  On top of the intense and thrilling storyline...the show's art, writing and music is amazing!  Lucas is a writer on the show....but all of his quotes had to have come from somewhere...Peyton is an incredible sketch artist on the someone really had to think up those amazing drawings and put them to paper.  Basketball is a huge part of the show...and Nathan really brings his on screen talent to the next level.  It's unreal.  Haley is an amazing singer/singwriter in real life and it just adds so much to the context of the show.  Brooke's sketches of her clothing line...again, someone really had to design that for the show...and it's truly so beautiful.  And last...the music.  Oh my dear...the music.  The music they have playing in each episode is the greatest part of the show.  The writer/director really knows how to pick some awesome music.  I've heard music from...just to name a few...Counting Crows, Ryan Adams, Patty Griffin....and so many more great artists.  They always have songs by new musicians, Indie artists, music legends and they have endless music references in the storyline, as well as several guest appearances!  This show is not just about "teenage drama" like some other shows that might be compared to it by people who have never even seen it, it's so much deeper than that.  It's soulful, haunting, heartbreaking, artistic, warm, harmonic,...there's just something so compelling about's truly the greatest show I've ever seen.   

This is an awesome has all the music ever played on One Tree Hill.  It gives the index of episodes and every song played during each one!  Check it out...
