Given how far behind I am in factoiding (7 days, eek), I figured it was time to pull a page from the music industry’s playback: when new ideas aren’t flowing, go back to the greatest hits.
Way back in Random Factoid #298, I wrote about how I tend to buy music after I hear it in movies (or their trailers, which can often feature catchy tunes). So here’s part two of that factoid, basically filling you in on all the things that are in my “Purchased” playlist on iTunes.
“Don’t Think” by The Chemical Brothers, as heard in “Black Swan”
“Baby, You’re A Rich Man” by The Beatles, as heard in “The Social Network”
“Animal” by Neon Trees, as heard in the trailer for “Love & Other Drugs”
“You and Me” by Penny & The Quarters, as heard in “Blue Valentine”
“Speaking Unto Nations” by Ludwig van Beethoven, as heard in “The King’s Speech”
“Misery” by Maroon 5, as heard in the trailer for “The Dilemma”
“Ball and Biscuit” by The White Stripes (RIP), as heard in “The Social Network”
“Map of the Problematique” by Muse, as heard in the trailer for “The Tourist”
“Creep” by Scala and Kolacny Brothers, as heard in the trailer for “The Social Network”
