Lets not forget who performed I ain’t got Rhythm. Vincent Martella the voice of Phineas performs the song. This 15 year old actor who plays Greg on the hit show Everybody Hates Chris is a huge talent!

And Battlestar Galactica is nowhere to be seen. It has some of the best music out there, even better than most motion pictures. Bear McCreary is a genius.
