— Josh Groban, “Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend is Crazy”


The End of The Movie” is a musical number performed by Josh Groban. After she had one of her worst days in West Covina Rebecca Bunch reflects on how real life doesn’t follow typical narrative patterns. As she does this she imagines recording artist Josh Groban singing next to her giving voice in song to all the thoughts and emotions she feels at the moment. This song debuted in the Season Three episode "Josh’s Ex-Girlfriend is Crazy.”


Song and lyricsEdit

The End of The Movie - feat

The End of The Movie - feat. Josh Groban (*SPOILER ALERT*) - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:

So this is the end of the movie...
Whoa, whoa, whoa
But real life isn’t a movie.
No, no, no.

You want things to be wrapped up neatly
the way stories do.
You’re looking for answers
but answers aren’t looking for you.

Because life is a gradual series of revelations
that occur over a period of time
It’s not some carefully crafted story.
It’s a mess and we’re all gonna die.

If you saw a movie that was like real life
You’d be like “What the hell was that movie about?”
It was really all over the place.
Life doesn’t make narrative sense.

Nuh-huh

We tell ourselves that we’re in a movie.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Each one of us thinks we got the starring role.
Role, role, role.
But the truth is sometimes you’re the lead
and sometimes you’re an extra
just walking by in the background.
Like me, Josh Groban!

Because life is a gradual series of revelations
that occur over a period of time
some things might happen that seem connected
but there’s not always a reason or rhyme.

People aren’t Characters, they’re complicated.
and their choices don’t always make sense.
That being said it’s really messed up
that you banged your ex-boyfriend’s dad.

Ohhhhhh.

Never bang your ex-boyfriend’s dad.



NotesEdit

ReleaseEdit

"The End of The Movie" is one of the few songs on the show that wasn't released as a single. On Twitter, Rachel Bloom mentioned this is due to singer Josh Groban having an exclusivity clause in his recording contract.

Adam Schlesinger's demo was ultimately included on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Original Television Soundtrack (Season 3).

ReceptionEdit

Allison Shoemaker at AVClub describes the song as being "on par with “West Covina,” “You Stupid Bitch,” and “Rebecca’s Reprise” in terms of both importance and achievement"[1].

"It’s a song that clearly states to Rebecca, and to us, what the show’s been telling us since the first time we heard the season one theme: life isn’t a movie, and the situation’s a lot more nuanced than that."[1]
