    I'm sure this song aint on the soundtrack.
    It's when Jenny is depressed on drugs and almost commists sucide by jumping. What the song played during that scene cannot find it anywhere?
    Thanks for any help.
    Cheers

    Freebird by Lynard Skynard. A veritable anthem from the mid-seventies, otherwise known as "the song that just will not end".

    Considering Jenny's story, this is vaguely on subject. In a recent Public Radio feature on contemporary music used at funerals a mortuary directer mentioned the use of Free Bird at a service.
    Asked if the entire song had been played he replied with an exhausted, "Oh yeah."

    I think the use of the song "Freebird" was more of a soundtrack to the seventies than a song with a theme that ties in with the story at hand. Besides, what does Duane Allman's death have to do with a woman trying to attempt suicide?
