Ben in Films..
« on: August 12, 2005, 11:39:28 AM »
Thought this could be an interesting topic.
What music of Ben's have you seen in films and which films.

I dont want movies very much but I remember my sister watching "The Sweetest Thing" and I heard i think it was 'losing lisa' for a bit somewhere in it.

Anyone else know of any other films which uses Ben Folds music?

Wandering was in Jersey Girl
Bad Idea was in the Truth About Cats and Dogs
Air was in Godzilla
Girl was in a movie i made....
My new philosophy is that a crappy tape deck somewhere plays a greatest hits collection of strange and tender moments, lost, stranded, and forgotten. I'll meet you there.

Somebody recently uploaded some videos and "The Book Place" was among 'em. I haven't got a link, but it wasn't long ago...

Wandering was in Jersey Girl

Wandering is from 100 Girls -- is it in Jersey Girl, too?

Parts of it. I dunno what parts. It's quite a witty song, though.

I have read numerous times that it was in Jersey Girl... It must be a good song for movies with "Girl" in the title (I'd have thought "Girl" was a more obviously choice ;)).

"Lonely Christmas Eve" edged out "Santa is a Big Fat f*ck" to make it on to the "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" soundtrack.
