I’m curious about the lyrics from background song from latest SWAT tv show episode (May 2, 2019). What is the song and who sings it?
Modern TV shows and series are using more and more contemporary music and it is becoming a great way to find new artists and expand your musical collection. From romances to comedies, action thrillers to horror shows, artists and performers are also finding having their music used on a show helps them gain visibility and expand their audience too. A win:win.
But this does lead to some questions from viewers about what they just heard. Mostly that’s going to be acknowledged in the closing credits, but a lot of channels zoom past the credits super fast because they want to ensure viewers don’t get bored and pop to the next channel with the remote. Fortunately there’s the Internet!
Since I’m not familiar with the TV series SWAT, it’s a great example because it’ll involve some detective work.
First step is to identify the exactly episode number. That’s easily done with a Google search for “swat tv show 2019 episode guide”, which reveals that TV Guide.com has a guide to each episode of the CBS series, including air dates:

Now that you know the song name, you can search for that on Google too: “when your heart is a stranger friends in paris lyrics”. A site called Genius.com has the lyrics for this song. They start thusly:
When your heart is a stranger and you know you didn’t treat it right,
When your love is in danger and you know you’re gonna need to fight,
When you can’t learn,
When you can’t learn…
So now you know. This should not only answer your specific question but show you how to do some basic online investigation to find the name of the next song that catches your attention. And now, back to SWAT…
