I haven’t done one of these in quite a while. Six or seven months, maybe.
We watched (500) Days of Summer one evening last week. It was pretty good: easy-going, interesting, a little bit different. Maybe a bit too self-aware, but aren’t a lot of movies, these days?
It turns out that the female lead, Zooey Deschanel, appeared on the soundtrack and sings with the band She & Him. I grabbed their two albums, and have had them on repeat pretty much the whole time I’ve been at my desk since. The music is cheerful, easy, confectionary for the ear, and there’s nothing at all wrong with that.
“Over It Over Again” is from the second album, imaginatively titled Volume Two.
