EDITORS’ NOTES

The soundtrack to the 2009 date movie He's Just Not That Into You rolls with some tunes you may have already put in a mix for that special someone. There are the two requisite ‘80s hits — the Human League's "Don't You Want Me" and the ever-sunny "Friday I'm In Love" by The Cure — but you also get some boozy '80s Midwestern grit-pop with the Replacements' "Can't Hardly Wait" and the svelte "This Must Be The Place" from Talking Heads' epic 1983 album Speaking In Tongues. The soundtrack also gets a little rootsy with My Morning Jacket's "I'm Amazed" and the twang- rocking "I Must Be High" from Wilco's 1995 debut. Lily Allen's 2 Tone Records-inspired "Smile" and the Ting Ting's jagged pop hit "Fruit Machine" both help keep things sounding British and hip, while Corinne Bailey Rae and the Black Crowes add a couple welcome dashes of soul. If you liked Scarlett Johansson's album of Tom Waits covers, you're in for a treat with her ambitious rendition of the late Jeff Buckley's "Last Goodbye," which closes the album.
