I’ve got a lot of soundtracks in my iTunes library, and I won’t try to hide it. What I haven’t revealed yet is that I buy a whole lot of songs because I hear them in the trailer of a movie. I’ll hear a tune and Google it to find out what the song is called. Click, click, it’s in my library.
Here are some of the songs that are now proudly stored in Marshall’s iTunes library thanks to movie trailers.
“Help Yourself” by Sad Brad Smith, trailer for “Up in the Air”
“You’ve Got Me Wrapped Around Your Little Finger” by Beth Rowley, trailer for “An Education”
“Photograph” by Ringo Starr, trailer for “Funny People”
“The Beginning is the End is the Beginning” by Smashing Pumpkins, trailer for “Watchmen”
“Wild is the Wind” by Nina Simone, trailer for “Revolutionary Road”
“Rock Me Sexy Jesus” by The Ralph Sall Experience, trailer for “Hamlet 2″
“Paper Planes” by M.I.A., trailer for “Pineapple Express”
“Iron Man” by Black Sabbath, trailer for “Iron Man”

And probably countless others than I can’t remember.
