So as you can see, I have been somewhat AWOL the last few weeks. Don't worry, I don't have swine flu, but I have been pretty sick, causing me to fall behind in school and blogging...but I'm back. So without further adieu, let's get going on the Pop Culture Song of the Week.
This week's winner was featured in Ugly Betty, one of the best shows on TV that is for sure getting renewed for next season. The song, Earlimart's "Before It Gets Better," has actually won this award before, but it is such a great song and had such an awesome useage in Ugly Betty that I had to nominate it again.
This wistful piano-driven starts playing at the end of the episode, just as (spoiler alert) Willi informs Christina that she can't have any contact with the baby since the blood tests have shown Willi to be the mother. This of course, is made more confusing because the baby looks nothing like Willie, in fact, she looks a lot like Christina....so this sets up some future drama. Cue the song and the people at ABC did a great job editing the song to fit the montage perfectly...see for yourself below by clicking on the image of Christina.
