15 Songs, 57 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The shock of recognition is one of the many joys in this 2012 compilation of Costello songs that have been used in an eclectic range of movies. The sparkling and spiky New Wave snarl of “Accidents Will Happen” was in E.T., while the Brill Building-style pop ballad “God Give Me Strength,” with Burt Bacharach, lit up Grace of My Heart. And the clattering barroom swagger of “My Mood Swings” leaked through The Dude’s headphones in The Big Lebowski.
