Question: I am one of the few who love Dawson's Creek, not just up until when they go to college but all six seasons. In the fourth season, when Gale Leery becomes pregnant, there is a really pretty song playing in the background when Dawson tells Joey. I know its called "Fields of Gold" but I don't know who sings it. Do you know? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Leah
Televisionary: The song playing when Dawson told Joey of his mom's pregnancy in the "Great Xpectations" episode was Eva Cassidy's version of Sting's "Fields of Gold." (It was also heard earlier in the episode, in a scene in Andie's hospital room.) You'll find it on her album Songbird (Blix Street), and Sting's original take is on Ten Summoner's Tales and Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994.
And just because I'm a stickler for detail, I'll point out that the Cassidy version was also used in the 2001 graduation episode, called, of all things, "The Graduate." Executive producer Paul Stupin chose it from among a slew of fan suggestions.
