        LORELAI: Well she’s been working her butt off all week on this Chilton paper, so I let her sleep and I’ll tell her tonight.
        SOOKIE: Call her now. Ooh, page her, or page her and have her call my cell phone and we can sing the money song from ‘Cabaret’. You be Liza, I’ll be Joel.

    • Reference (not on playlist):
      • LORELAI: No I mean – God I know this is crazy. I have my mother’s voice stuck in my head. It’s like that annoying Cranberries song. I hate that I let her do this! I have that I let her get to me!

I am pictured holding my copy of Grease (1978, RSO Records, Inc.). Fun fact: my mom passed this copy down to me from her own collection.

Spinning in Stars Hollow


This week I’ve added 3 songs to the season 1 Spinning In Stars Hollow playlist, all of which are suggestions for fans of the singer-songwriter aesthetic of the town troubadour:

Please, if you like what you hear, support these artists and buy their music.
