Amusingly Misheard Song Lyrics: Smallville Edition
Back in Season 4 of Smallville, if you (Smallville fans) recall, they had that short Alicia Baker storyline, which I totally loved. Of all the "meteor freaks," I felt the most sympathy for her, and I thought the actress did a great job (not to mention the chemistry between her and Tom Welling in the wedding scene. Rrowr). At the end of the one episode where she realizes how she's made a mistake by tricking Clark, and that they can't be together, there's that fantastic sad scene where she's (understandably) upset about it, and they hug, and it's very *aw*. And they play this beautiful sad little song.

So I've been meaning to track it down forever, but all I could remember was a tiny line from it, which, as it turns out, I got completely wrong! Hah. But I kind of like my version.

The song is Johnathan Rice's Break So Easy, and the lyric I was remembering is "A dark haired woman is driving the roads." Unfortunately, I heard it as, "A dog-head woman is wandering the roads." No, I had no idea how that could make sense, but that's what it sounded like, and it still kind of makes me laugh. HEE.

Anyway, it really is a beautiful song. You can listen to it here. I recommend it.

In other things: the rain, it is STILL GOING. Rain, rain, GO AWAY.

Smallville

Ohh her character was amazing. I loved the interaction those two had and too really felt for her character. I was so pissed when they killed her off. At the point of the series i was like, "Damnit No! That's who Clark should end up with" I think the episodes with her in it are like the best ever. So what are your thoughts on the series now? The wife and I aren't feeling it anymore. It's kinda getting stale. As much as we liked the series, i think it is time for it to move on. But what i really want is a Green Arrow series. I think there could be some great stories there. Fresh characters, fresh stories, new angle.

Re: Smallville

Yeah, Alicia was a great character, I wish they had done more (although I am glad they didn't draaaaw something out that they weren't sure what to do with.

I do agree that the last several eps have felt fairly flat. I still love the Lois and Clark interactions when they are at the top of their game (I mean, how awesome was Committed, and then there was that whole elevator bit in Instinct, and then the part where he framed Lois's rules). I did love the recent phone booth scene where she talks to "the Red-Blue Blur." It felt very canon.

One of the main reasons I keep watching (besides The Pretty and that I am sucker for all things Superman) is that I LOOOOVE the baby!Justice League, AND Green Arrow. He's definitely a favorite of mine. I also would love to see baby!Flash again. He was a favorite of mine - I loved Run.

I suspect I will see it through until the end because, I mean, I am fairly invested. But it's certainly lost something.

Re: Smallville

The Lois and Clark stuff was pretty good this season... to bad it got derailed by Lana's return. But yeah i'm in the same boat as you in that i'll fallow it through to the end. I just wouldn't be heartbroken if this season was the last.

I loved the comment someone made in the Smallville thread for a forum I'm on, when the news came out that it had been renewed. The woman was like,

"Smallville's been renewed? Tom Welling is going to shoot himself!"

Hee. I have a sneaking suspicion even the actors might be getting a little tired of it. Maybe that's why it's feeling flat.
