Dolorean’s “What Could You Do”
The spare “What Could You Do” is not on a record yet. Last New Years post-champagne Portlander Al James (AKA Dolorean) conceived and recorded the song in a single sitting. Last night the until now unreleased and under wraps “What Could You Do” got the nod by the Grey’s Anatomy as music meant for a dramatic moment, and the single hit iTunes. Though it’s not clear Grey’s Anatomy soundtrack has the pop culture cache it once wielded, according to zap2it with regard to last week’s premiere week ratings “Grey’s Anatomy solidified its claim as the #1 drama on TV.” That’s many millions upon millions of viewers tuning in. So regardless of whether it’s jumped the shark or not, Grey’s is still one of the biggest gigs to get for a great song, and the inspired “What Could You Do” is definitely that.
Dolorean’s record the Unfazed was one of Sound on the Sound’s 24 Unmissable Records from the Pacific Northwest in 2011.
