There were a lot of familiar faces in the Gilmore Girls revival: Luke! Lorelai! Logan! Lane! People whose names don’t start with L! But overall there was one glaring omission—the song that played over the opening credits for seven seasons.
The classic title sequence featured famed songwriter Carole King and her daughter, Louise Groffin, singing a duet called “Where You Lead,” an homage to the mother-daughter relationship at the heart of Gilmore Girls. The song was not only irresistibly catchy (don’t pretend you don’t sing along), but also set the tone for each episode, reminding viewers about the special nature of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore’s bond. While King made a guest appearance in the new Netflix series, the song’s absence was both noticeable to fans eager for their return trip to Stars Hollow.
Luckily, YouTube user “rose tyler” felt fans’ pain and fixed the credits by adding King’s song back to the credits, as well as a few other A Year in the Life scenes. Perhaps if the fans’ lead, the show will follow and if Netflix does indeed order more Gilmore Girls episodes, King’s song will be back where it belongs.
