This week, I’ll be writing about songs featured in some of my favorite musical moments from some of my favorite TV shows. Be warned that I don’t shy away from spoilers.
Towards the early-middle of Community’s first season, just as the show as hitting its stride and starting to take creative risks, came this. It’s possibly my favorite scene of the whole series. I love how it ties together various scenes with tight audio and visual cues. And it gives everyone a moment of warm redemption.
Danny Pudi and, of course, Donald Glover are emotive singers that bring to life the heart-tugger. It’s been decades since I’ve seen An American Tail, but I can say with confidence that its “Somewhere Out There” is nowhere near as great as Community’s.
