Playing the music of the star's husband's ex-wife in the series finale?? …maturity is a beautiful thing!
GG's swan song opened with Lulu Gainsbourg and ScarJo's sultry cover of Bonnie & Clyde as Chuck and Blair were escaping from the scene of his father's death. This was also the moment when Serena learned the truth behind GG and hopped off the plane to rush to Dan.

Not even close!
As the CHAIR wedding was in preparation, It's Time by the delightful Imagine Dragons swept our silver screens in a tour de force! Seriously… we haven't felt that pumped for a TV wedding in a loooong time!
Their nuptials continued and Chuck and Blair exchanged their vows to The Talking Heads' Road To Nowhere, which provided an atmosphere of certainty, of satis… faction.
But theirs wasn't the only legally binding ceremony to be had! In a beautiful homage to its romanticized New York predecessor, GG fused Florence + The Machine's cover of You've Got The Love with DERENA's wedding.
Every true Sex and the City fan squealed in jubilee at that moment. Including us. Ha!
Now, what's a lil' GG fairytale without some dramatic twist??
As Kristen Bell's voice wrapped the series up once and for all, Kill Me by The Pretty Reckless played to usher in a new era of anonymity. And we gotta say… using Little J's song for the finish was just SO touching!
Check out You've Got The Love above, and then treat yo'self to the library of highlights (as well as a sweet, sweet surprise) …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
