Sing-a-Long Fridays (6/11)

Sing-a-Long Fridays is hosted by Dana at Reading Amidst the Chaos.

All you need to do is pick a song from one of your favorite shows, movies, or artists and post it on your blog or comment with the link below so that other people can karaoke away! It's a great way to share the excitement of another Friday and an even better way to get the party started for the weekend!

This week I'm taking Sing-a-Long Fridays back to my high school roots - Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon did an incredible job weaving music of all kinds through his show. It didn't matter if it was being sung by a character (Giles anyone?) or played in the background ("Virgin State of Mind" by K's Choice) music was always the unmentioned addition to the cast of the series.

This all culminated in an episode Joss was only allowed to make once the show made the shift from the WB to UPN: The Buffy Musical. It was EPIC. This particular episode had all of the characters chiming in for their mini solo or duet, letting each man or woman sing from the heart was is often the hardest to say.


To mark the greatness of that episode, I've linked below Spike's (James Marters) solo, 'Rest in Peace'. The whole Buffy - Angel vs Buffy - Spike relationship battle was so hard for me because I was totally pro B-A, but then Angel left the show and Spike came in and was like the bad boy but heart strings were tugged. It was hard.
