Grey's Anatomy: Behind the Music...

at . Comments

It's been teased for weeks and it finally arrives this Thursday: the Grey's Anatomy musical episode, titled "Song Beneath The Song," clips from which you can watch HERE.

What cans fans expect from this installment, which Shonda Rhimes says she's been "wanting to do... since we made the pilot?"

It will follow up on last week's traumatic cliffhanger, as the episode faded to white on Callie was moments away from flying through the windshield of Arizona's car. Arizona has just popped the biggest question of them all, of course.

Calzona Smooch

"I think that the proposal is something that is 100 percent heartfelt, but it's just something that she sees as an answer to not feeling legitimate in this new arrangement," Jessica Capshaw tells TV Guide. "Before you can even figure out why it is that she asks Callie to marry her, they're in this horrible situation."

So... where do the songs - Capshaw and Sara Ramirez will duet on KT Tunstall's "Universe & U," for example - come in?

From a semi-conscious Callie, as her colleagues treat her and communicate with her via music. Remember: the name Calliope is taken from a mythological Greek figure who was the muse of song.

"They make the connection from the get-go, so we understand why it's music that Callie's soul is speaking to her through and why she sees everybody singing," Rhimes says.

Rachael Lawrence - who has helped train members of the Glee cast - spent hours in the recording studio with hesitant Grey's Anatomy stars.

Ramirez, a former Broadway star, didn't need the assistance, of course. She will sing Brandi Carlile's "The Story" and says: "It's a wake-up call of epic proportions for Callie. What lies in front of her [after the accident] is more than just glass. It's an opportunity to fight for her life and to make sense of why her life, and her life with Arizona, is worth fighting for, if that's the case."

A full album of the episode's songs - which will include The Fray's "How to Save a Life," Kate Havnevik's "Grace" and "Wait," by Get Set Go - will be available for download on iTunes Thursday morning.


Callie and Mark should get together


Callie will have a TMI, how is she supposed to remember that Arizona proposed let alone the accident? I'm so over the threesome. I watched Big Love for stuff like that, I don't want to see it on GA. If C/A are supposed to be a couple, then let them be a couple. I think the music will be great, but if this episode (which should be dramatic) plays out like a daytime TV soap opera then it will be hard to stomach that much ooey gooey cheese. I really hope that it's not ridiculous or cheesy.


I all ready know I am going to be crying like a baby. I started crying while watching the preview after last Thursday's episode. I going to make sure I have the tissue ready. I love Callie.


@ spanishfan Meredith talking to her mother and people who died on the show it wasnt realistic either or izzie having sex with dennys ghost. So I dont know what your talking about realistics, this isnt the first time that the show does something involving ghosts. lol


But, couldn´t be this episode more realistic? I mean, the extracorporeal thing doesn´t sound serious. I know it´s pure fiction, but GA is supposed to be a drama series, not a second X-Files. Ficiton, yes, but serious, please.


Well I love the series and I think its terrible that they used Calzona for this dramatic incident. hey people, she's "pregnant", they're in love!!! that'll break many hearts if something goes wrong there!!!! :-(. but hey, life goes on, right!!!as I'm a 100% Callie-Fan, I can't wait to see the musical episode this thursday!!!enjoy!!!


Most of you are over looking and over thinking about this episode. Shonda wants her musical episode to go great for the audience. She won't ruin it by killing anyone. It's a type of rating ploy to pull people into the musical episode to find out the fate of Callie and Arizona, as well as get people to get into the musical episode. If there were any speculation of a death of a character, we would have found out by now. We've found out in the past of 5 previous characters who left the series, so trust me when I say; no main character will die on this upcoming episode.


i think the thought of a musical episode has thrown people off. I don't think the episode is going to be cheesy like dancing or lights. I think that the way the directors are executing it is different and i think it's going to work beautifully. Callie is having an out of body experience so the music works. I am excited to see how it pans out. This couple has been through HELL so they NEED to have some semblance of a happy ending.


If any of them die i will be real upset!!! They cant have us wait for a month for that to happen.


YOU be beyond crazy. Staight outta USofT. YOU need help. If they can ever catch you ridin' around on that broom. Tee hee

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
