A thing I just don't get

Songfic. Do. Not. Get.

I do not share your taste in music, almost certainly. I do not expect you to share mine. Or to know the same stuff i know. Mostly these songfics refer to stuff by artists I've never heard of. Whatever it was the author was trying communicate by pasting in those song lyrics, I'm gonna miss.

Music works completely differently in film. You can do your songfic there because you can play the actual music. Buffy-the-tv-show did it often. Like the use of La Boheme in "Passion", which helped turn already-painful dramatic irony white-hot. (That episode changed me from an enjoyer of Buffy to a rabid fan.)

Damn, I seem to be grumpy today.
