Figure out the movie, then figure out the song?

How can I figure out what song was in the obscure movie I watched last night?

Apparently I was listening to the wrong music in the 70s.

I watched part of a 2008 movie last night in which a tired middle aged guy, I believe in Hollywood, recalls his adolescence in England where he is being seduced by his mother's friend while pursuing a girl his own age. He and the girl have a date and lipsync a 70s song that I had never heard before. I watched the (very long) credits, but then the song name was very tiny and fuzzy on my TV and I couldn't read it. Now I can't find the movie title.

Was anybody else watching that movie? What was it called? Anybody know the song?

Look up the tv listings from last night? Do you remember any of the stars from the credits? Which country are you in? This shouldn't be hard to solve.

Best answer: Flashbacks of a Fool. That Wikipedia link mentions the song If There Is Something by Roxy Music, perhaps that's the scene you're thinking of?
