The Music of “Smash”

I thought this might happen.

NBC’s “Smash” is being rather clever when it comes to musical numbers.  The episodes feature not only tracks from the Broadway show they are working on, but also current pop tracks as well, cleverly nestled into karaoke bars and other theatrical settings.  How else could you get a Bruno Mars cover in a show about “Marilyn the Musical”…

Tracks like ‘Let Me Be Your Star’ and ‘Beautiful’ have already found their way to the iTunes store with about seven others.  Pretty soon we’ll be able to assemble the original cast recording ourselves.
