EDITORS’ NOTES

Groundhog Day is anchored by uplifting songs that make a complex foundation for a quirky film. Sonny & Cher’s epochal “I Got You Babe” heralds the dawn in the protagonist's eternal holiday, while “Phil’s Piano Solo” represents his fitful transformation from miserly weatherman to lovable humanist. George Fenton’s carefree score (“Drunks”) sets the perfect rhythm, while Delbert McClinton’s soulful pop pulse and pertinent lyrics for “Weatherman” make it one of the truly great ’90s film themes.
