again, google was no help

song 1: when william is introduced to Red Dog and the rest of the wild rocknroll life at the first concert...."Take a stranger's course to the corner of your eye.....do do do do do do do da dum"

song 2: when william calls lester after being hired by roling stone mag. Lester has a record playing then he cuts it off. the song playing went a lil bit like this: "kiss me and ....baby please don't...." (I think it's like "baby please don't go away..."

thanks all!

I'll ask the question that always gets asked about Almost Famous and it's music (yes, because I'm just too damn lazy to look for myself) Posted Image

What is the Sigur Ros song at the end, and on what CD can I find it?

Thanks.

Matt,

Are you sure you're not thinking of Vanilla Sky?
The song at the end of that movie is called Njosnavelin. It was unavailable via official channels when then film was in theatrical release, but a version of the song turned up on their 2002 album "()". The album version is different from the live version heard in the movie, but is still excellent.

-postscript: I like it when multiple versions of songs come out Posted Image

D'oh! :b

What can I say--I get my Cameron Crowe movies with good soundtracks confused. And I was in another Vanilla Sky discussion on another message board at the same time.

Oh well, I'm a moron. Thanks for the info! Posted Image
