So I spend a lot of time in gay bars these days. So I hear certain songs a lot. And sometimes certain songs, if they had been popular fifteen years ago, would have totally been used in an ironic Bronze montage.

Don't judge me, okay?

This is the high school Buffy vid I've been talking about.

LYRICS:
I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you're here in my arms
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

Young hearts, out our minds
Running 'til we outta time
Wild child's lookin' good
Living hard just like we should
Don't care who's watching when we tearing it up (You Know)
That magic that we got nobody can touch (For sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight (yeah)
Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side
Like it's the last night of our lives (uh huh)
We'll keep dancing 'til we die

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you're here in my arms,
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

Young hunks, taking shots
Stripping down to dirty socks
Music up, gettin' hot
Kiss me, give me all you've got
It's pretty obvious that you've got a crush (you know)
That magic in your pants, it's making me blush (for sure)

Looking for some trouble tonight (yeah)
Take my hand, I'll show you the wild side
Like it's the last night of our lives (uh huh)
We'll keep dancing 'til we die

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you're here in my arms,
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums
Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you're here in my arms
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
We're gonna die young
Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young

This is quite possibly the best Buffy vid I've ever seen, because I did not know how much I needed Ke$ha to early!Scoobies. SO much fun, especially with all the great dialogue bits, and I may possibly have done some chair-wiggling dancing during it.

Love this! So much Buffy joy and irony and tragi-comedy. I really like how it shifts from dying young to fighting young at Graduation.

What a brilliant song choice! I love how much the vid made me reconsider the many innocent victims and minor characters who died in this show--there's something wonderfully dark and discordant about the juxtaposition of the upbeat song with the horrors of your visual narrative--and of course the graduation turn is brilliantly done.
