”Scrubs”’ Sacred Heart has a better playlist than most radio stations — not bad for a hospital. The music of the Shins, Eels, and John Cale has been featured on NBC’s Emmy-nominated comedy, and on Sept. 24, Hollywood Records released a ”Scrubs” soundtrack. Now the series’ star, Zach Braff, has directed a video for the CD’s first single, ”Superman” (”Scrubs”’ theme), by alt-rockers Lazlo Bane. ”I didn’t want to do what the ‘Friends’ did,” Braff says, referring to the clip for the Rembrandts’ ”I’ll Be There for You,” which had the cast goofing off with the band. Instead, Braff, who will make his movie directorial debut with and star in ”Large’s Ark” opposite Natalie Portman, mixed color footage of Lazlo Bane with B&W behind-the-scenes cuts from the show. Getting the cast and crew to participate was no problem. Says Bill Lawrence, ”Scrubs”’ creator and exec producer, ”We’re all total music nerds.”
