Listen to Fiona Apple’s ‘Criminal’ from Ted Lasso, S3 E8 as Keeley shows Jack the leaked video

American alternative pop singer Fiona Apple’s ‘Criminal‘ was one of more than half a dozen cool songs playing on the soundtrack of Ted Lasso this week — Ted Lasso, Season 3, Episode 8, “We’ll Never Have Paris“.

The indie pop track was playing as Jack shows Keeley a private video of her that has surfaced on the Internet.

The song is playing quietly in the background as Keeley decides not to watch the video.

Fiona Apple’s ‘Criminal‘ came out in late 1997 as the third single from the New York-native’s debut studio album Tidal, which was released on both the Work and the Columbia record labels.

The song went on to become one of Apple’s most successful ever singles.

It charted very high on five different music charts in the United States, including at #2 on the USĀ Adult Alternative Songs, #4 on the USĀ Alternative Airplay chart, and at #21 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The indie singer also hit high up Australian and Canadian charts, although European music fans seemed to largely ignore Apple’s music at the time.

Criminal‘ also sold more than 1 million units in the United States, and very quickly earned itself a Platinum certification.

The following year, it earned Apple a Grammy Award in the Best Female Rock Vocal Performance category, and was ultimately placed on several high-profile music critics’ Best of… lists.

Listen to Fiona Apple’s ‘Criminal’ as heard on this week’s Ted Lasso in the song’s music video, and on her Tidal album.

The track was released more than 25 years ago, has gone on to be played on many popular TV shows, and is still one of Apple’s most well-known songs.
