Do you watch Scandal on ABC?

I do, sort of. When Scandal first started airing, I watched it but with one eye on a book or my laptop, all the while feeling guilty for not paying attention.

Why feel guilt? Because I adore Kerry Washington. Total girl crush.

What got me to pay attention wasn’t the show really, but a song: The Album Leaf’s “The Light” which you can listen to here.

The song is first heard around the 23 minute mark of the episode “The Trail.” The scenes between Kerry Washington’s character Olivia and that of Tony Goldwyn who plays the President (previously a Governor) are incredibly hot, even if you, like me, don’t find Mr. Goldwyn 100% compelling. I put him at about 75%. But still.

Just watch.
