You know how TV shows feature bits of actual songs to help create atmosphere and move along the story? The person responsible for that is called the music supervisor. It's his/her job to listen to music, suggest songs to the producer and/or director, acquire the necessary licensing, make the appropriate payments and then help create edits so the song fits the scene perfectly.
One of the best music supervisors today is Thomas Golubic. If you've ever seen Breaking Bad or Six Feet Under, you've heard his work. Thomas was the keynote speaker at an M for Montreal luncheon yesterday--and he was fascinating.
