Old song, new song?
It’s an old song, it’s a spoiler but I know all the fans know about it already. I texted Ryan Murphy a while back just saying, ‘hey, if you ever have any of the characters break up don’t miss out on the opportunity to use one of the greatest break-up pop songs of the last 100 years. You have to use “Don’t Speak.” It can work as a duet, it can work as a four-part harmony. It’s a gold mine, you have to use that.’ And I would rarely do stuff like that, but it’s one of my favorite songs ever written and I remember listening to it in the car and I pulled over and texted Ryan, “just a thought…”. Then the script showed up and there it was and I was like, “yes!” I don’t want to take credit for it, but I did suggest it.
so we have Darren to blame for Don’t Speak
