The shows creator, Rob Thomas, uses music to express what he calls the characters head space but doesnt tell Bell what songs are being used until the end of production.
Bell says Thomas song choices are so dead on that its scary and says hes introduced her to acts like the Dandy Warhols, Spoon and Stereophonics, whose songs have appeared on the series.
One musical act that probably wont make the cut on future soundtracks is Bell herself, despite making a smash appearance singing Fame at this years Emmy Awards.
She admits producers have talked about doing a musical episode but the other actors say they cant sing so it would be just me.
Veronica Mars airs Wednesdays and the first season was just released on DVD.
