'Heathers' Reboot: Listen to Heather Chandler Sing a Suicidal Musical Number (Exclusive)
By John Boone
Make love to me gently with a chainsaw!
Not only is the Heathers reboot, once-canceled-and-now-uncanceled, finally coming to TV screens, but it's coming with musical numbers. After all, you don't cast a Broadway star like Melanie Field and not let her belt. ET has the exclusive premiere of "Lemmings Lament," in which Field's Heather Chandler croons an answer to the question: If everyone jumped off a cliff, would you jump, too?
"Your dreams, they don't matter / So, let's go splatter," she sings. "Should I play it safe and stay here on my own? / Ugh, it doesn't matter if you're right and all alone / So, I must leave / But am I a sheep? / No, I'm a lemming / Lemmings have to leap / Lemmings have to die / Time to kiss the sky, goodbye!"
There will be two soundtracks released for the series, one featuring tracks from DJ Shadows and Peggy Lee, among others, and the original score from composer Chris Alan Lee (Younger). You can pre-order the score on Friday, but until then, check out another exclusive track, "In the Clear for Now":
