Hum a few bars!

I am incapable of doing the 30 Days of BtVS meme because this concept of "favorite" just doesn't work for me. I mean, my Top 10 Episodes list has 21 episodes on it! So 30 questions about "favorites" would be torture.

However, besides the obvious (Spike! Fool For Love! Doppelgangland!) that everybody on my f-list is saying anyway, there is one thing that I have an opinion about. Favorite song is...wait for it...the Buffy Theme! Woo hoo! Twice an episode! Done in a funny TV style for the musical! Covered by The Breeders and a few lounge combos for extra enjoyment. I lurve it so much. Of course, I hail from a time when one minute songs were considered revolutionary artistic pinnacles.

Did I mention that I like rock instrumentals as a general rule? My other favorite TV theme is (no surprise) Hawaii 5-O.

Honorable mentions: "Faith In Love" by Devil Doll (the panther crawl song), "Bohemian Like Me" by The Dandy Warhols (I think it underlines what a creep Parker is), and "Blue" by Joss and Angie Hart (Conversations With Dead People). I like a lot of the music, actually. I have CDs. That is all.

I've always thought they did a great job with the music. I have the Radio Sunnydale album. :D

And you're right; Bohemian Like Me is the perfect Parker song!

And I have the Buffy-theme as a ringtone on my phone. I set it as the default for the friends who turned me on to Buffy back in the day!

I want!

Although I sometimes feels very technologically savvy, there are things that still mystify me. Like ringtones, for instance. If it's not one of the standard iPhone selections... *goes back to churning butter*

Oooh! Thanks! I was actually lamenting the lack of "Buffy Theme" ringtone, but this is great, too!

When work calls me, the Imperial March from Star Wars plays. Everyone else gets the standard iPhone ring.

Tehehe, the song we entered the reception venue with, after the wedding, was the Buffy Theme. It was also my ringtone for a loooong while. I love it!

It definitely signals that it's time to get this party started! Very apropos!

I'd wanted to do that meme for ages, but when I've seen it previously it was spread out over a whole month and seemed designed to let people ramble on at length about how much they loathed certain things. This short version, though, was irrestistible.

There was an AtS one too, I think. Maybe I'll do a short version of that too?

I'm not sure I could pick a song from AtS that did anything for me the way reams of the music did on Buffy. Yet another reason BtVS is my show!
