Beverly Hills 90210/song (season 3, ep.29)


QUESTION: What song is played at senior breakfast where they show the David Silver clip of him dancing?




Thank you for your question.  Sorry for the delay in answering but I have been busy and while I thought I knew which song it was I wanted to be sure before giving you my answer.  The song playing while David Silver was dancing at the Spring Dance *(Season 1; Episode 21)* was "The Best I Can't" performed by The Rave Ups.

Thanks for the answer but I am actually talking about episode 29 when David and Donna are hosting the senior breakfast showing all of the past clips. See link below

@44:55 mark



Thanks the clip helped however the way its slowed down makes it harder to identify it.  From multiple sources the only songs performed by the Rave Ups were:

"The Best I can't"
"She Says Come Around"
"Respectfully King of Rain"

I'm very familiar with the first 3 songs and once I found a clip of that episode playing at normal speed I have to agree with you that it is most certainly not "The Best I Can't"

Here is the clip I found with the same song playing from the original spring dance episode:
It plays from 34:24 - 36:36 *(sometimes it tapers off during dialogue)* but it is definitely the same song.

That said, I listened to "positively king of rain" repeatedly and it just didn't sound like the same song until I found this version where I am sure the intro they played is the same as the version in BH 90210, but aside from the first few seconds of the intro after that it sounds like an entirely different song.

I am still looking into it as I think there could be two versions of the song which may explain why only the beginning sounds similar.  In my opinion though, I have always thought that I heard "Rain" as the only identifiable lyric in that particular song as played in the 90210 episode which adds to the possibility that it was in fact a rare version of their "King of Rain" song from the Chance Album.

I did as much research on it as I could for tonight and I wanted to avoid making you wait so long again but I have a tendency to be stubborn when it comes to stuff like this so something tells me I won't be happy until I figure it out one way or another. If and when I do I will add it as a follow up:)

I have been a fan of Beverly Hills, 90210 since 1990 when the series first debuted on television. Every Thursday I had my ritual of watching the show as it was airing on television and also recording it on VHS videotape. I accumulated at least twenty of these recorded videos and would later watch them so often that they ended up being so worn out that they wouldn't play properly anymore. I currently have all ten seasons along with the special "Final Goodbye" episode and I still do watch them often enough to be able to answer any question relating to characters, guest stars, story lines, and the original music played during episodes. I am confident that I would be able to answer any question with regards to the show and consider myself an expert on all things Beverly Hills, 90210.


I have been a loyal fan of this show for many years and have had many discussions with other fans with regards to all aspects of the series from story lines, regular characters, guest stars, music and various other topics relating to the show. I have also submitted corrections to questions that have been asked on this site and thus consider myself an asset to the Beverly Hills, 90210 Experts community.

After having been a fan of the show for over two decades I feel I've earned an unofficial PhD in Know-it-all-ogy when it comes to Beverly Hills, 90210 and I am confident that I would pass any test on any subject relating to the show with flying colors.
