Alumnus. Or Alumna. "Alumni" means more than one person.
She's really talented and her version of "Goodbye" was so poignant when it aired. The right song at the right time.
UPN almost killed the song for me as they blasted it over an awful lot of promos towards the end of Buffy season 7. But I always felt it should have been on the recently released BtVS soundtrack.
yeah i liked the live version she played better than the one on the cd...........
I remember Joss saying somewhere that that version was closer to the version she plays or has played in concerts. He said, unsurprisingly, that he thought the album version sounds too commercialized or something like that. Definitely think the Buffy version is a much more beautiful song than the album version.
And yeah, it's one of the most glaring omissions from the Buffy soundtrack. At least they put that really memorable Blur song on there.
i just got a lot more feeling from the live version than the commercial one. its just done a lot better
Joss said the album/single version of the song was "overproduced".

I can't believe Raven actually changed the link title because of my "alumnus" squabble. I'm a jackass. Ignore me.
Yeah the Buffy version of that song was far better. Funny that so many other people feel so too. The official version was indeed way overproduced. But then in these 'American Idol/Britney/Mariah' days, what isn't?
