Help me find more 80s soundtrack theme songs ABOUT their parent films.

Help me remember music videos from that magical era when bands would record theme songs for (often horror) movies that were actually lyrically about the movies themselves and the artist would sometimes appear in the video and the video would be a story video and...well you know. Think Ramones' "Pet Sematary" or Dokken's "Dream Warriors" [more inside]

I love the way you say "diegesis"

In 1Q84, as in many of his other books, Haruki Murakami frequently tells us what music his characters are listening to, providing a de facto soundtrack to the novel. What other authors suggest or provide soundtracks to their works and/or what other written works basically have soundtracks?

Can you recommend movies featuring touching interactions between non-alpha types?

Can you recommend some good romantic movies that feature people who might be considered by some to be 'losers' or, if not that harsh, people who would be considered generally unattractive due to looks or lifestyle or any other reason that would make one not alpha? Other necessary qualities are an excellent soundtrack and definitely a script that rises above the cliche. Any genre is fine, so long as there is something touching about the romantic link between the protagonists. [more inside]

Songs that remix dialogue from films?

PF Project's song Choose Life is constructed from samples of a monologue by the lead character of the film Trainspotting. Similarly, This Is Your Life by the Dust Brothers is built around samples from the film Fight Club reformulated as a monologue and overlaid on some trip-hop beats. Neither was actually featured in the film, but were released as singles and appeared on the soundtrack. What other songs like this are there?

Whatever happened to the Kevin Smith Clerks 2 commentary download?

A few months ago, there was news that Kevin Smith would release a director's commentary early, so fans of Clerks 2 could rewatch the movie in a theater with an iPod. Clerks 2 has come and gone from my local theater but I'm still wondering if this audio ever came out, because I'd love to hear it and watch the movie again (have to catch it at the $1 theater now). Anyone ever heard what became of this? I don't see any mentions of it online

What Satie pieces are featured in the movie "Being There"?

I've got a Satie piece in my head and it just won't quit. And it's not on any Satie CDs I've checked out of the library. I'm pretty sure it's featured in the movie "Being There," though. It's mostly in a major key, and it's relaxed and friendly. Any thoughts? Anyone have the soundtrack listing at their fingertips?

Identify "nina hermosa" song from the movie Real Women Have Curves

A while ago I watched Real Women Have Curves and heard a beautiful song during the scene part way through the movie when she and the preppy kid are first getting together. Went something like, "nina hermosa, nina something, nina something." Sorry I can't be more specific. Anyway, I bought the soundtrack to get the song and sadly it was not on the soundtrack. Any idea what that song is?
