A: Not only does Lawless 32 sing that melody-known as "The Burial Song"because it's used whenever an Amazon dies-she created it. The New Zealand born beauty told us the tune came to her while jogging one day, and it was orchestrated by Joseph LoDuca, who won an Emmy for the show's score. "We never dub Lucy's voice," notes LoDuca, who also wrote a Xena score based on Wagner's Ring Cycle, which has been featured this month. Incidentally, Lawless will hang up her shield in May; Xena is being cancelled after six seasons.
