In the study group's fourth year at Greendale, Britta organized a dance at school protesting with what she considered to be an anti-feminst Sadie Hawkins dance organized by Dean Pelton. She proclaimed her dance to be named after who she mistook to be a historical leader in the American Women's Right's movement, Sophie B. Hawkins. Even after being corrected by the study group that she meant Susan B. Anthony, she decided to go ahead with her plans due to Jeff ridiculing her. Despite numerous attempts, Britta was unsuccessful in trying to get Sophie to perform at the dance. Unknown to Britta, Pierce knew Sophie personally from the time Hawthorne Wipes sponsored Lilith Fair. He took pity on Britta and arranged to have Sophie and her band show up to the dance at the last minute. After performing her popular single "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" she then played "As I Lay Me Down" from her album "Whaler". It was first heard sung by the artist herself in the Season Four episode "Herstory of Dance" .
The song with lyricsEdit
|"As I Lay Me Down" is one of Sophie B. Hawkins best known songs which came from from her 1995 album Whaler. It was the second release from the album which followed the lackluster commercial reaction to her single "Right Beside You". Hawkins took to touring the country with an acoustic piano to promote this song, after which time it took off in the charts. It managed to find a niche place on the Top 40 and Adult Contemporary music charts among the more popular rap and grunge songs of that era. It also was featured in TV shows such as "Dawson's Creek" and in the movie "Now and Then". Sophie mentioned in the 1997 documentary "The Cream Will Rise" that she wrote the song in honor of her father.
