"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

The Magnetic Fields version is one of the most played songs on my iPod. PG's version isn't bad, but nowhere near as lovely as MF's version.

I think this episode wrapped up the series beautifully and that rarely happens with finale shows. I hope this is the end of the series because it was so well done.

I agree: it's too bad itunes forces you to buy the whole soundtrack. in the end, i followed your advice and bought the other version. very touching too. it was such a wonderful episode! it should almost end on that note...

Mike Doughty also does an amazing cover of this on his 'Golden Delicious' album. It's the last song and it's a hidden track. I definitely recommend it if you love the song!

I loved the use of Peter Gabriel's version and I am very upset that iTunes will not let me download just that song :(. I do not need the soundtrack to a horrible JLo movie.

Book of Love has been one of my fav songs since 69 Love Songs came out and it was perfect last night, even the sappier version. FINE, I'll tell you. I cried. Jeez.

Actually, and I hope I don't offend anyone, but my BF and I cracked up laughing at this song when we saw Shall We Dance. We both looked at each other like "OMG, what is this? It's so bad!!!"
