I've uploaded a song to YouTube based on the episode "Anne". It is based on the scene where Buffy is in the hell dimension where people from the streets of LA are taken as slaves. And of course, Buffy saves the day and has to be the hero again.

At the moment I've made it unlisted; only those with links can see it. I thought it would be good to get feedback from Buffy fans which would help motivate me for making videos/songs in the future. This is just a 'test run' so to speak, to see what happens, if anything. I'm also interested in further ideas on which scenes/plots in the series would make a good song.

I chose this scene as I think it gives a good idea of what the series is about. It struck me as quite iconic and demonstrates why Joss gave the show that title. "Anne' sets a dark vibe quite similar to season 6 - although more central to the theme of what "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is. Buffy tries to be a normal person with a normal name, "Anne", living a relatively mundane life as a waitress. Seemingly, destiny finds her again. Except its her own curiosity that puts her in that situation, her own inclination to help someone who was obviously in need.

Excerpt from script -

Cut to a personnel elevator. The huge steel door splits open, the upper
half rising, the lower half sinking. A group of young slaves including
Buffy and Lily is herded out. Buffy trips and falls to the floor. The
other slaves stop walking. A guard starts to explain things to the new
recruits as Buffy slowly gets back to her feet.

Guard: You work, and you live. That is all.

The guard has even less skin on his head than Ken. He's wearing a hood
that looks like it's made of human skin sewn together. His chin
and cheeks are exposed flesh and muscle, and he has no lips covering his
teeth. Buffy is standing again, holding her head in pain.

Guard: You do not complain or laugh or do anything besides work.
Whatever you thought, whatever you were, does not matter. You are no one
now. You mean nothing.

The guard walks to one end of the group and faces the boy standing
there. Behind them the elevator doors close with a slam.

Guard: Who are you?

Aaron: (afraid) Aaron.

The guard whales hard on him with his club, and the boy grunts in pain
and falls to the floor unconscious. Buffy immediately sobers, and stares
intensely ahead. The guard advances to Lily.

Guard: Who are you?

Lily: (whimpers) No one.

The guard continues to the next person.

Guard: Who are you?

Boy#2: (fearfully) No one.

The guard reaches Buffy.

Guard: Who are you?

She looks up at him for a moment, and then smiles.

Buffy: (friendly) I'm Buffy. The Vampire Slayer. And you are?

America loves a winner!

* Wow...YOU made that?

That was worthy of ' Once More With Feeling ! ', though the sound quality was a bit off on my system. Sounded a tad muffled, even with everything cranked up to 100 %.

Thanks! I consider worthy of 'Once More with Feeling' to be a huge compliment. Will hopefully do an updated version soon.

On a more Firefly related note, it might be nice to do a cover of the Firefly theme at some point. I was thinking about covering songs from the BtVS musical, as the channel is meant to be Buffy specific. As I don't have a lot of time right now the Firefly theme might better (shorter).






Is there life after Buffy...??
