The True Story Behind Oscar and Josslyn’s Song, ‘I Never Knew,’ on GENERAL HOSPITAL

In an episode of GENERAL HOSPITAL that aired in September of 2018, Oscar showed Josslyn a video he’d created for their first anniversary featuring clips and photos of them together set to his “favorite song.” That song is “I Never Knew,” which some fans might recall as the duet that the young couple sang together at the 2018 Nurses Ball. But many might not be aware of the story behind the song and the surprising person who wrote it!

“I Never Knew” was written by Daytime Emmy-winning GH director Phideaux Xavier after filming one of the soap’s dramatic episodes earlier in the year. “The reason the song even came into existence,” he revealed, “is because we did an episode involving an earthquake and [Josslyn] had this monologue over Oscar’s bedside when he was unconscious where she talked about, you know, if she couldn’t wear her dress, she used to think that was a tragedy. And so I went home and I couldn’t sleep that night and I came up with this idea for this song for Eden to sing at the Nurses Ball about coming of age and realizing that life has more ramifications and meaning than we ever knew. And now we know.”

You can rewatch the scene where Oscar shows Josslyn the video he edited and they smile about how happy they are together right here if you like… but if you want to keep the mood light, be sure to turn it off when their scene ends because the clip continues with Kim’s emotional breakdown and Drew’s promise to help her deal with Oscar’s cancer.
