The Girls And Gilmore Girls Mashup You’ve All Been Waiting For
What do you get when you cross the Gilmore Girls‘ charming theme song, “Where You Lead” by Carole King, with the opening credits visuals for HBO’s Girls? You get this video above.
Does Girls feel like more of a heartstrings-tugger with this as the theme music? Are you imagining an alternate television universe in which characters from the two series interact? Would Lorelai and Hannah be besties, despite the age difference? Do you prefer Adam Driver’s character on Girls or Rory’s boyfriend on Gilmore Girls, the possessive, tall one with the middle-part hair? Or do you like Rory’s other love interest, the “bad boy” one who’s Luke’s nephew?
OK, those are all the questions I could think of.

I was conflicted. It felt like one eye was trying to look away while the other soaked it up. I felt the heat rise in my face. This was wrong. But it didn’t feel wrong.
Any nervous flyer knows the progression of descending panic: bile, sweaty palms, social awkwardness and self-induced sedation.
I know how it feels when the weight of darkness crashes down onto your chest in the middle of the night, and how you wish things would stop spinning because the axis seems tilted now. I know, love, I know.
