Music & Scrubs

Scrubs is returning to television for its 9th season!

I sometimes wondered why I got hooked on Scrubs. My first episode I ever watched was "My Own Private Practice Guy" on a Westjet flight on route from Toronto to Vancouver. This clip was the one that made me laugh so hard on the plane... even when it was 8am in the morning.

I always wanted to watch the whole series over all the seasons, which at that point season 6 just wrapped up. Thankfully, I had Matt, who I found out through coincidence, is a Scrubs fan as well. He had with him DVDs of Seasons 1-4.

That December holiday was subsequently spent watching this hilarious comedy. Well, that and playing Call of Duty 4, I don't think I set foot outside that whole holiday. I didn't want to go outside. That had hurt so much.

But enough of that, over the seasons there were songs that stuck to me. Songs from indie bands that I had never heard of before. It was through Scrubs that I heard the bands "Five for Fighting", "Finger Eleven", and solo artists Rhett Miller. Yup, the first time I heard "How to save a life" was from Scrubs. Not Grey's Anatomy.

Here are some memorable moments I loved throughout the 8 seasons:
Song: Good Time - Leroy

Song: More Than A Feeling - Boston

Song: Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas

Song: Don't Stop Believin' - Journey
This episode is actually titled "My Journey".

Song: Hey Julie - Fountains of Wayne
Just watch, and listen to the lyrics.

Song: All of the words - Kutless
Carla is finally pregnant after trying for so long.

Song: Screw You - Theodore Buckland & Stephanie Gooch

Song: Hey Ya - Theodore Buckland (Ted for short)

Song: Hold On Hope - Guided by Voices
Ben (Cox's brother is diagnosed with leukemia)

Song: Winter - Josh Radin

Song: Tell Her This - Del Amitri
J.D. realizes that he actually wants more with Elliot. But...

Song: Cindy - Tammany Hall NYC
J.D. going to see Elliot because her boyfriend just left.

Song: How to save a life - The Fray
Cox accidentally kills 3 patients.

Not only these songs, but Scrubs has a musical episode in Season 6 titled "My Musical". Highly recommended.

Scrubs has been with me for a long time. It has comedy with pieces of drama. Maybe its the "moral of the story" style of story telling that has me hooked, or maybe its the emotional fragility of characters.

I haven't even listed the laugh out loud moments that I loved. I love this series.

People all have times of weakness. Just as the title song suggests...

"I'm no Superman".
