This is my latest discovery. Keep Breathing by Ingrid Michaelson I'd never heard of her before. Gorgeous (sad) song.

Anyone got any more?

Aimee Mann - Wise Up, at the end of Magnolia. Spine tingling...

Breathe by Sia - from the last-ever Six Feet Under. S'wonderful.

I first heard Sarah McLachlan on 'City of Angels'

Feel free to add links - I always like to hear new music.

Aero Wed 03-Sep-08 19:35:53

TheOldestCat - that's just the sort of thing I love - another to add to my list.

Benny & Joon I think it was a Joe Cocker version in the film, but I prefer this one it seems!

Aero, glad you like the Sia song; it's beautiful isn't it? if you ever watched Six Feet Under, then you'll love the finale

It was brilliant, wasn't it? DH bought me the entire thing on DVD to watch when I went on maternity leave (while waiting for DD to arrive). Loved it.

If DD had been a boy, i'd have been angling for Nate as a name...

(sorry to hijack your interesting thread, Aero. Love the Ingrid Michaelson song, cheers).

I love this song from Cruel Intentions - had no idea it was Counting Crows til I bought the soundtrack.

Also bought the whole Aqualung album based on the VW ad...

Flamesparrow Thu 04-Sep-08 21:32:27

sod it this one too (That film has a good soundtrack!) Your winter is still my fave though

Melissa Etheridge from Brother Bear 2 "it will be me". It makes me boo every time I hear it.

smog - "vessel in vain" from dead man's shoes. great film, great soundtrack.

EachPeachPearMum Thu 04-Sep-08 22:50:58

Second Aimee Mann, first heard by me on Magnolia soundtrack.

In the House In a Heartbeat is one of my favourite pieces of music, from 28 later. Gets played a lot in the gym.

loads of individual songs from tarantino films.
