The Music of ‘One Tree Hill’: “When the light gets into your heart…”
During this trip down a musical memory lane, we’ve relived Nathan and Haley’s first kiss, as well as Lucas and Peyton’s post-basketball championship lip-lock. For the last week before the series finale, I thought I would share a little memory with one of our other favorite couples — Brooke and Julian.
Who could forget Julian’s reason for arriving in Tree Hill? He wanted to produce a movie version of Lucas’ novel, “An Unkindness of Ravens”. When it came to the costumes for the film and Brooke was asked to design them [episode #6.12 “You Have To Be Joking (Autopsy of the Devil’s Brain)”], Julian may or may not have walked in on Ms. Davis as she got her “groove on” to the 80’s classic, “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds. Okay, he definitely did … right in the middle of the Clothes Over Bros’ boutique. Later on, Julian would tell Brooke that it was the very moment he fell in love with her. *Collective sigh.*
The song was played once again in the fifteenth episode of season seven, which was actually entitled #7.15 “Don’t You Forget About Me”. However, this time around, it served as the opening track for the episode, but that still wasn’t the last time we got a dose of Brooke’s musical guilty pleasure.
In episode #8.13 “The Other Half of Me”, Brooke and Julian finally took that walk down the aisle and became husband and wife; but, earlier that day … before Brooke put on her big white wedding dress, she received a little note from Julian in the form of a CD. Needless to say, we once again watched as Brooke happily danced around her house to the song that started it all.
If that’s not one for the memory books, I don’t know what is.
