Ok, you’ve probably already seen this list from McSweeney’s, entitled Possible Follow-Up Songs for One-Hit Wonders (if not, go and then come back, mmkay?).
But I’ve been thinking of another sort of list. Not-Quite-Actual Songs That Should Have Been on the Soundtracks of Actual Films. This actually happened, when Albert Brooks convinced Simon and Garfunkel to change the lyrics to “Mrs. Robinson” for inclusion in his film, Mother (1996). Here’s a start:
- Eye of the Liger, by Survivor (Napoleon Dynamite (2004))
- okay, this is much harder than I thought…wanna help out?
