He’s No Superman
In honor of Scrubs’ series (season?) finale tonight, here are my ten favorite uses of music on the show, in no particular order:
J.D.’s first emotional connection to a dying patient is scored to – NOT Jeff Buckley’s "Hallelujah,” but John Cale’s!
Turk and Carla, and J.D. and a brief girlfriend whose name I don’t remember, settle down to watch Sanford and Son, with Turk singing improvised lyrics.
Turk races to find a pregnant teen in the park during a Christmas episode over Nina Simone's "Sinnerman"
Ted's a capella band performs a killer version of the Underdog theme song.
Colin Hay does an acoustic "Overkill"
Ted's band does "Over the Rainbow"
Cox loses it after losing one too many patients
Everything Comes Down to Poo
Ted's girlfriend's song
Ted does Hey Ya at the janitor's wedding
I hope they bring Scrubs back just for Ted.
