This one from 503. Someone on YT asked to ID this song in the scene...

QAF 503 Part 9 "Sunshine…how did I ever get along without you?"

Save the last dance for me
You probably know the origin of the song but I discovered it only now, so for those who dont know:

The song is based on the personal experience of Doc Pomus (the songwriter), who contracted polio as a child and spent his life on crutches or confined to wheelchair to get around and could not dance.
In the song, the narrator tells his lover she is free to mingle and socialize throughout the evening, but to make sure to save him the dance at the end of the night
Pomus actually wrote the lyrics on the back of an invitation to his own wedding three years after he got married, remembering how it felt to watch his bride dance with his brother and other quests, knowing that he himself was unable to navigate a dance floor. Willi Burke, the woman who married Doc Pomus, was a Broadway actress and dancer. The song gives his perspective of telling his wife to have fun dancing, but reminds her who will be taking her home and "in whose arms you're gonna be."
Song was first recorded and popularized in 1960 by Ben E. King with The Drifters (thats the version they used in QAF) and has frequently covered in concerts by Leonard Cohen.

Showtime v. Netflix

Good morning!

This threw me for an enormous loop. So, it's this past August, I'm watching Ep 101 via Netflix and they’re on the hospital roof. I’m so looking forward to Heather Small’s Proud. I never hear it. I think I must be crazy. I re-play the scene. Now, I know I’m bonkers. Extremely confused, baffled, almost alarmed, I run to my computer!

Thank God the internet offered an explanation. So, my solution is: LyricWiki:Lists/Queer As Folk | LyricWikia | FANDOM powered by Wikia.

When I know there's an iconic song about to play like Battleflag by Lofidelity All Stars in 311 I hit pause, run into the computer room and play the song and/or find the scene on youtube. Not ideal but it saves me the Showtime $12.99/month LOL.

Believe it or not, blaspheme that I am, some of the Netflix music is actually better. However, some of their music I can never forgive or even listen to such as during Weapon in 309. They actually play some made up song that says something like “as close to satisfied as I can be.” !!!!!!???????!!!!???? Um, what now????? Not anything thematic like “I’m taking a huge risk here and opening my heart to you, AGAIN. Please don’t hurt me or walk away from what we have ever again.” Nope. Just some nonsense implying that it ain't all that a bag of chips but Justin is the closest thing I can come to at the moment to being satisfied. How resigned. How cynical. How hum-drum. How horribly sad, empty and hollow. That scene is pivotal, passionate, a bit scary for Brian. Their love's in burning orange like FIRE!!! Where's the passion, Netflix??

Yikes. Netflix makes that unwatchable unless you remove your closed captions and hit mute. If I leave the CC on my eye accidentally looks at the words for a split second but it's too late. My eye balls have already left their sockets and I'm getting tired of having to push them back in.

So, I always hit pause then run to youtube for some Weapon action; then rush back to the tv and ff until I see Brian grab the comic book. But, I actually like the Boy Wonder better than Let’s hear it for the Boy in 103 and the fast paced B/J Babylon dance music in 310 when Brian asks Justin if he wants to party like it's 1984 (sooooo clever!!!) is FAR better in Netflix. I've re-run the Netflix version over and over and over. That beat along with the look on Brian's face as he's dancing with his Justin is just. too. much.

And...dare I say????? The exquisite Save the Last Dance for Me has been replaced by some made up, similar sounding genre but the words are so much sweeter. Basically: They say all this stuff about all the fish in the sea but I knew we were meant to be. When we’re done with all this messing around we’re the only ones for each other.

*has to wipe self up off the floor after the prom dance each and every time and it's been that way for 16 years!!*

This I have to agree with. Some of the music placed on the Netflix version is just pitiful, but some of them also may have improved the scene. It just depends on the atmospheric feel I get when I hear it within a scene. Music can make or break a scene's feeling, which is why I most prefer the originals. But every once in a while when I have HULU cued up and I'm looking a show, I hear something that was better than the original. This doesn't occur often though, as I like the originals better.

I only have heard the music from the dvd's so I don't know what music I have or if it's different or the same or what it should be playing. I do know that I am pretty sure Proud is playing on the hospital roof though

I love this song so much. It shouldn't on be remember for the bombing scene, although that is where I first heard it. I went and scoped out the acoustic version and it just reminds me so of the show.
