There’s something about cohesive soundtracks. Those that are written and/or performed by one single artist or band. I personally think that it adds another dimension to the movie because songs can be such a good complement to the story. Since it’s currently winter and snowy in Sweden, I thought I’d post a little something about the soundtrack to About a Boy. The phenomenal Damon Gough aka Badly Drawn Boy (let’s talk more about him sometime!) is the brains behind this record. Even though neither the movie nor the soundtrack really fits 100 % into the Christmas category I always find myself listening to these songs a lot this time of year. Going out for a walk in the cold on a sunny day, hearing the snow crunch under your shoes. That’s what I associate this record with. It’s definitely one of my favorite Badly Drawn Boy albums.
P.S.: I can also recommend the book (written by Nick Hornby) and the movie, if you haven’t already checked them out.
