<em>Gossip Girl's</em> Best Musical Moments
Josh SchwartzThe O.C. Gossip GirlChuck GG,

And there are many such Victor Fleming-esque moments. Despite its fluff, Gossip Girl has all the trappings of a classic. There's a reason references to Shakespeare, Edith Wharton and Jane Austin pop up constantly; the Chuck-Blair-Dan-Serena-Nate plotlines go way back. Take this one: boy is socially inferior to girl and works his way to the top for her attention. Thank you, Mr. Dickens. Or how about this one: tortured narcissist falls for free spirit, but she wants to play it safe with the neighbor-boy next door. A nod to Ms. Bronte. This is the class-embroiled stuff the greats are made of, and though GG's brand of social commentary might be more suited to The View than New York Times, it makes for a damn fine soap. With maestro Schwartz at the helm, we're sure to get a symphony that befits such an epic. In honor of the spin-off pilot, "Valley Girls" airing tonight, and the upcoming GG finale, here are some of the musical moments from the Upper East Side that sweep us off our feet.
