Storyline

A man's corpse is found in a field, totally torn-up in an agricultural harvest shredder, later identified as Tommy Sour. He was reported missing by his neighbor, an artist whom his incessant noise annoyed terribly. Tommy was a fitness instructor in a gym, and an amateur singer in a night-club, which spurs Zach to demonstrate his own unknown vocal talent. In both scenes Tommy made enemies, providing both suspects with motives and theories for the prior decapitation murder-weapon, some sort of metal string. Tommy also was romantically stalked by a gym client (Pam), according to shrink Sweets a potential killer, who alas turns her 'favor' upon Booth after a single touch from the studly interrogator. Alibis keep crossing those theories, until a kinky variation hits the nail, and alas something else hits an unintentional target. Written by KGF Vissers

Bones tells Booth and Sweets that her mother said she sang "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" better than Cyndi Lauper. In season 5 Cyndi Lauper plays a psychic, whose sister was murdered. See more »

Goofs

(at around 48 mins.) Doctors Brennan and Hodgins are walking and talking together and as they approach the secured, elevated, work area Dr. Hodgins reaches for his I.D. and successfully scans it so they might enter without setting off any alarms. However, the magnetic strip on the card is on the edge of the card that is in his hand, not on the edge he swiped. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Seeley Booth: So presumably he was killed, decapitated, and mulched. Wow. Can it get any worse for this guy?

Songfest
28 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

B&B look into the death of an aspiring singer whose remains turn up in a field. Many suspects, too few clues. The singer performed at a local club' weekly amateur night and by day was a fitness trainer who was being stalked by a lovesick client. A fellow amateur night singer was jealous of him. Another musician wasn't happy about his sniffing around his musical partner. The fitness club owner where the dead guy worked had a sticky financial situation with him. And so on. In the course of the episode, we get to hear Zack belt out an old pop tune and Brennan launch into a Cindy Lauper favorite. I was surprised Booth didn't begin to sing.
