Since JHC hasn't posted today, i think i will. This is my favorite song from Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind*, which also happens to be one of my favorite movies. The song bellow is by Jon Brion, a brilliant brilliant producer. Whatever he touches i seem to love. All the music in the actual movie, minus the beck, is by Mr. Brion. He's brilliant when it comes to composing and production, though i can't say I'm the biggest fan of his singing. He also did the soundtrack to I heart Huckabees, Punch Drunk Love, and Magnolia. He has a way of making the music sound nostalgic, sad, and comforting all at the same time. It fit perfectly with the movie. His melodies are always so simply and so memorable while his production allows the music to take on another dimension. Like Jim Carey in the end of the movie, the end of the song will make you beg for more.

Jon Brion - Peer Pressure

*If you, for some reason, find yourself attracted to the song in the latter half of the trailer it's by recognize the song in the trailer it's by the Polyphonic Spree, who I despise. Can't seem to figure out why DJ IHNF hates them so? Visit the website and watch 3 movies, I DARE YOU. For a group that is essentially a catholic choir, you think they would have read the commandment that stated: THOU SHALL NOT SING SAPPY MUSIC WHILE SMOKING LSD AND SINGING TO JESUS.
