A song you like from a movie soundtrack
“Little Heaven” / Toad the Wet Sprocket (1992)
Wow. This was hard only because I had so many options to choose from. I’m going to go with “Little Heaven” based on the depth of my love for the use of this song in the movie Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I’ve written at length about how much I dig the campy delight that is the Buffy movie. If you haven’t read my post about it, go forth and enjoy. Lots of GIFs and fun pics.
My absolute favorite scene in the movie takes place during the big dance when Buffy and Pike dance together while the song “Little Heaven” plays. He sweetly tells her how special she is, how she’s “not like other girls”. Her little smile and reply that yes, she is melts my heart. In the midst of all the craziness of her life, Pike gave her the one thing she had been craving- a moment as a normal girl, not a vampire slayer. Every time I hear the song I can’t help but tear up at the memory of the scene. Love it forever.
