by Natalie Abrams Kevin McKidd Grey's Anatomy's upcoming musical episode is sure to bring back fond memories, if the show's set list is any indication.
As we first speculated, the musical episode will feature songs made popular by the medical series, like The Fray's "How to Save a Life" and Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars," which were both featured in the second season.
Kevin McKidd tells TVGuide.com that he'll be involved in both of those numbers, as well as singing Gomez's "How We Operate," which was heard in the penultimate episode of Season 2, "Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response."
"We're in the studio right now," McKidd says. "I did my recording [Wednesday]. I've got quite a big couple of numbers. It's a one-off episode in Callie's point of view. It's very dramatic. It's a very intense episode. It's not going to be jazz hands and glitter balls."
Though fans have been nervous that the show may be jumping the shark by doing a musical episode, McKidd insists that it's "a love letter to the fans." "It's very exciting and quite experimental. I think it's great that the show has taken such a bold move to do something like this, and I think it's going to work in a big way."
Grey's Anatomy returns with new episodes Thursday, Feb. 3 at 9/8c on ABC.
