“Chuck versus the Tango” has some unconventional music choices with pieces by Mozart (Figaro) and, of course, a tango by Gotan Project, “Santa Maria.” If you are not familiar with the Gotan Project it is worth a look; it’s tango music but somewhat electronic with sampling and varied beats.

For conventional pop tunes, season one episode three of Chuck has “Slow Show” by The National, “The General Specific” by Band of Horses, and yet another tune by Spoon, “Don’t You Evah” from 2007’s Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga.Cake’s “Short Skirt/Long Jacket,” the song that provides that catchy baseline for the theme, is featured on this episode.

Cake released their first live album ever on Record Store Day 2014, Live at the Crystal Palace, and there are rumours of a new studio album coming out soon.
