"The Book of Love" Song from Scrubs Finale by Peter Gabriel and The Magnetic Fields

Listen Up: The Scrubs Finale Song "The Book of Love"


Scrubs has always been creative with its music, and on Wednesday's maybe season finale, maybe series finale, the show knocked it out of the park once more. As JD prepares to leave Sacred Heart one last time, he envisions a possible future for himself, filmed in old-school home movie style. Playing behind the montage is Peter Gabriel's take on "The Book of Love," originally recorded for the Shall We Dance soundtrack.

That song's always guaranteed to get me a little weepy, but I actually prefer the original version, from the Magnetic Fields album 69 Love Songs. You can check out both versions for yourself — and watch that final Scrubs blooper reel — if you read more.
