It's taken me days to put this together, and some of the songs are possibly iffy, at least in that there are equally viable/worthy alternatives, but maybe those'll go into the sequel. It was hard not to make the closing credits some 20 minute number by Arvo Pärt, on principle.. but I didn't want to make my own damn movie into a vehicle for principles. (Even mine) Fight with Friend is probably the most awkward fit, simply because it was the most difficult pick. It's curious to me how many songs are definitely songs du jour, vs many that are 15 year champions. Even with that, though, I know I'm forgetting "better", "more appropriate" songs via proximity. July 13th 1985 is more than a textual smirk. I tried ever so hard to avoid that Bauhaus song, too. How many of my sentences begin or end with a variant of "also"?
