Spike, Musical Connoisseur

Yanno, there are only so many things a vamp can do during the day, and there's only so much daytime TV to be had. Makes sense Spike might develop a taste for other things on occasion.

Got another one! In The Initiative he says "Hello, gorgeous" when he finds Buffy's name on the computer housing list. This is a quote from Funny Girl, which I just remembered as I was watching the Barbra Streisand number on Glee tonight. Ha!

Spike is totally a musical fan. He's a pop culture fan, and during a long stretch of his years, musicals were a big part of pop culture.

Also, the "get your kumbayayas out" line is a double popcult reference. The folk revival of the late '50s & early '50s was closely identified with the not-exactly-authentic spiritual song "Kumbaya", while the Rolling Stones had a live album called "Get Yer Ya-yas Out!". It's a mashup! That's what ghostyouknow27 was talking about. Um, I might be putting too much energy into this...

Nifty!

I didn't know about the Rolling Stones reference, either. Thanks for clearing that up. I thought she was referring to the seventy-six trombones line, which didn't sound very Rolling Stones-ish to me. *g*
