Was it just us, or was Gossip Girl Season 6, Episode 4, “Portrait of a Lady Alexander” less of an oeuvre d’art, and more of a sketchy affair (literally)? Regardless, there were some standout performances in the episode... musically. Close your eyes to images of Steven and Rufus kissing inappropriate partners (ew, even that word makes us feel like hitting up some therapy) and open your ears to these sweet sounds:

Scene: Nate reads Dan’s chapter about him while in bed with Sage

Song: Pick and Choose
Lyrics:
If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I choose you it's old news
If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose

Every time I try to call you never pick up the phone
And when you do you've got a million reasons to go
And when I ask you if I'm good enough you tell me no
Sometimes I feel like I can call your bluff, you ought to know

If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I choose you it's old news
If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose

You try to talk like all the world's gonna step on your toes
And make me feel like I should never give a damn 'bout your woes
Don't try and tell me I don't understand
I don't think you really understand
Do you believe that you're the only one
I think you're absolutely wonderful

Hold on, Hold on
I'd give up everything for your admiration
Hold on, Hold on
I wanna let you know that I'm never leaving your side

You and me, we're so caught up in awkward situations
Let me be, be the one who kills this contention
Nothing in this world will stop the beating heart I have for you
Maybe I'm just crazy but I know that you can feel it too, like I do

If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I choose you it's old news
If I could pick
Could pick and choose
I'd pick you, yeah, I can't lose

Song: Warrior (Jungles Part 2)
Lyrics:
Young blood, step forward
Don't hide yourself away, now
Take what I've taught you
Grip firmly and move swiftly

I must answer to the life I gave up
I'll be gone until I finally wake up
I can't be here to catch you when you fall
If you fall

Warrior, the bite marks soon will heal
Warrior, do not forget how it feels
Warrior, never set down your shield
Nor the sword and bow you've learned to wield
Oh, warrior

Battles will find you
Learn to turn away, now

You must meet them with a humbling wisdom
Challengers will take your courage with them
You must raise your head with dignity toward all
Prepared to fall

Warrior, the bite marks soon will heal
Warrior, do not forget how it feels
Warrior, never set down your shield
Nor the sword and bow you've learned to wield
Oh, warrior
