Ear Candy | When George Met Sally

If you liked the movie 'It's Kind of a Funny Story' then you'll love 'The Art of Getting By' but this post is going to be less about the movie, and more on the soundtrack. So first thing's first, I think it's pretty evident that movie plots or stories like this are already starting to be a bit of a cliché for this generation --finding meaning in life, making sacrifices, getting your shit together, two people who start off as friends even though the entire audience knows they're going to end up together at the end, bla bla bla-- the soundtrack made up for it, though. I'm sure a lot can relate to this movie, and along with it, the soundtrack.

The movie kicks off with The Shins' cover of 'We Will Become Silhouettes' originally by Postal Service. My favorite track from the film is 'Sleep The Clock Around' which Mates of State covered fittingly, but of course nothing could beat the original by Belle & Sebastian. The Boxer Rebellion also drops a sweet tune in the movie with 'Spitting Fire and for the more, shall I say, advanced? audience, (or for those old souls like myself) Leonard Cohen's 'Winter Lady' will surely put you in a state of nostalgia.
