Radiohead + Talk Show Host + Lots of Sun = Summer

I don't know about where you are, but here in NYC today it was sunny and beautiful. And I don't know why, but this weather always reminds me of one thing - Radiohead..."Talk Show Host"...you know the one. I know it from Baz Luhrmann's version of Romeo and Juliet...and if you're a female between 23-28, you probably do too.

It's probably the shot of that sunset in the very first frame...and Leo walking in slow motion right after that...but everytime I hear this song, I feel mellow and easy. Problems melt away because when things are in slow motion and have perfect lighting, everything is right in the world.

And I'm not gonna put all the videos on here, but DAMN that soundtrack was fucking good. HELLOOOO???!!!

"#1 Crush" by Garbage!
"Local God" by Everclear! I mean, Everclear used to be the jam.
"Pretty Piece of Flesh" by One-Inch-Punch! Who the eff is that??!! I dunno but the song is great!
"Whatever" by Butthole Surfers!! Who names their band that??!!
"Kissing You" by Des'ree...the theme of the movie...girls sigh around the world for this song.
"Lovefool" by The Cardigans! This song has had a long life, my spinning teacher played it not too long ago.
"Young Hearts Run Free"! "Everybody's Free"! And the "You and Me Song"! I mean...just to name a few.

Jesus. That shiz is amazing. And just so summer. If you were as obsessed with that movie as I was...or even just obsessed with all things Leo, you probably have the same feelings toward this soundtrack as I do. Radiohead takes the cake though. Listen to it again. Or go to youtube, they have a million live versions of the song too. Ugh! Love it. Ok I have to go outside and walk in slow motion now.
