You prob’ly can’t tell, but I’m singing right now.
You may want to know why, but the question is how?
Seems that singing in prose is just writin’ a poem,
So let’s cut straight to the chase and bring this sucker home.
Dating back to the earliest days of TV,
A number of tropes turn up repeatedly.
The musical episode concept repeats,
From Gilligan’s arias to Buffy’s backbeats.
Many of our TV friends show off hidden talent
(At the cost of our disbelief being suspen’t)
Even if that conceit makes the listeners leery.
Thus, in turn, we consider a lyrical query…
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) was going to be a singer, but was raised by an English teacher and couldn’t get past “ain’t no one for to give ya no pain,” asking: What’s your favorite musical episode of a not-normally musical property?
