The other day Tom said something to me and I immediately burst into song at him. (Please tell me you do that when people say something that reminds you of a song too?) He stared at me kind of blankly (nothing new there) and it took me a minute to realise he had no idea what I was singing to him and for once it wasn’t just my awful singing that meant he couldn’t place it.

The song in question I was singing at him was The Mustard from Once More, With Feeling. You know, that musical Buffy episode? Exactly!

I do burst into song at random times without even thinking about it. It can be pretty embarrassing, mostly for the people who are with me at the time. The other day Tom and I were on the DLR and he was trying to tell me a story. Every time he got to a word I could possibly link to a song I sang at him. I don’t think he was very impressed. Hahahaaaa. It amused me no end though. Anyway, that’s a different thing, normally I do it as a reflex action without even thinking. Please tell me that you do this too! I’m not just a weirdo on my own.

Me being weird wasn’t the point of this post anyway. It was about soundtracks – hence the title. I love a good soundtrack. One that really gets you going and it hasn’t even crossed your mind that it’s a bit odd that people have burst into song for no apparent reason. I think the best thing about soundtracks is that as long as you give it a lot of oomph you sound pretty good belting them out. Well, that and the fact it makes the housework go by a bit quicker and makes it a bit more fun to do if you dance with the vacuum cleaner and bellow out some show tunes.

So yeah, I just wanted to share my reignited love of musical soundtracks with you and just in case you had forgotten about or, heaven forbid, you’ve never heard the Once More With Feeling soundtrack I’m just going to leave it here.

What other soundtracks should I perform (it’s never a sing along, it’s always a performance) when I’m next running the hover around?

    Once More With Feeling is the only episode of Buffy I’ve seen all the way though! I live my life through musical theatre soundtracks to the point where I have no idea what’s in the charts because I’d rather listen to a musical
