"My Musical" Soundtrack

Guy Love is a song sung by J.D. and Turk during the sixth episode of the sixth season ("My Musical"). This song is a "declaration of love" between J.D. and Turk. Many believe this to be the greatest song in the episode. There is no apparent point for this song being in the episode, besides its pure comedic value.


Guy Love

Original version from "My Musical"


The Blanks - Guy Love (Official Video)

The Blanks cover.


J.D.: Let's face the facts about me and you, a love unspecified
though I'm proud to call you "chocolate bear"
the crowd will always talk and stare.

Turk: I feel exactly those feelings too
and that's why I keep them inside
'cause this bear can't bear the world's disdain
and sometimes it's easier to hide.

J.D. & Turk: Than explain our guy love, that's all it is
guy love he's mine I'm his
there's nothing gay about it in our eyes.

Turk: You ask me 'bout this thing we share...

J.D.: ...and he tenderly replies.

Turk: It's guy love...

J.D. & Turk: ...between two guys.

Turk: We're closer than the average man and wife.

J.D.: That's why our matching bracelets say Turk and J.D.

Turk: You know I'll stick by you for the rest of my life...

J.D.: You're the only man who's ever been inside of me!

Turk:(Spoken) Whoa whoa! I just took out his appendix.

J.D.: There's no need, to clarify...

Turk: Oh no?

J.D.: Just let it grow more and more each day.
It's like I married my best friend...

Turk: But in a totally manly way!

J.D. & Turk: Let's go!
It's guy love, don't compromise,
The feeling of some other guy.
Holding up your heart into the sky.

J.D.: I'll be there to care through all the lows.

Turk: I'll be there to share the highs.

J.D. & Turk: It's guy love, between two guys.

J.D.: And when I say, "I love you, Turk,",
it's not what it implies.

J.D. & Turk: It's guy love

J.D.:(Spoken) No hands.

[J.D. and Turk hug]

Production Details

  • Before "My Musical" debuted, a video of this song, showing clips of this scene and the recording of this song, was available on iTunes.
  • The song also appeared in "My Road to Nowhere" as Turk's cell phone ring tone for Carla, and as an arranged incidental version in "My Words of Wisdom". The song was later played in the background during an emotional scene between J.D and Turk in "My Comedy Show" and then reused for the reunion of J.D. and Turk in "Our First Day of School".
  • It was the hardest song for Fordham to write. She met with Perry for help with the lyrics, and he gave her the hook, "It's guy love, between two guys." The writing became easier, but she still wanted a reference to a tender moment between Turk and J.D. At first, the song was meant to be a power ballad. She emailed D'Abruzzo, who she knew to be a big fan of the show, "and, no exaggeration, five minutes later, she sent me a list of 30 [moments]," including Turk performing an appendectomy on J.D. in "My Day Off"."
  • Turk and JD both have lines where they speak even though Patti Miller hears singing.
