It's probably because I am a geek, or have had too many blows to the head, but I like Dream Warriors by Dokken when I feel nostalgic. And no, I was not a teen in the 80s.

I liked Anything, Anything by Dramarama in this movie.



The only reason I like Nightmare by Tuesday Knight is because it reminds me of Freddy. And the 80s. Other than that, it's not really my taste, but it suits the movie well...

Joshua (2007)
I love the song "The Fly" by Dave Matthews. It was written in 2007 for the movie "Joshua" and the lyrics really fit, but the song is also eerie and strange.




When I pull the wings off of the fly
The fly never wonders why I did it
When I pull the wings off of the fly
The fly never wonders why I did
You know they didn't ever
Have to love me
No, no, no

And no one ever will ever
Love them now
Oh, oh, but they
They always wanted somehow
To save me
Why, oh, why
For pete's sake, they should've saved themselves
Oh, oh, but you

You always said I never missed a note
I only ever wanted to be with you

I only wanted someone to play
Play, play, play
When I pull the wings off the fly
The fly never wonders why
You know they never really ever had to love me
No, no, no

But no one will ever love them now
Oh, oh, but they
They always thought that somehow they could save me
But why oh why
For pity's sake me, they should've saved themselves
but you
you always said I never missed a note
and nobody ever knew me like you do, you do

You always said it's gonna be ok, ok
I only ever really wanted to be with you
I only wanted someone to play, play, play, play
When I pull the wings off of the fly
The fly never wonders why I did it.

I love the soundtrack for this movie.

First, there is the awesome Reverance by The Jesus and Mary Chain



Also Fading Away by Jan King (this song is kind of emo, but whatever. It went well with the movie.)



Oh yeah and I've Got Spies by Dramarama



Ignore the above music video please, it was the best audio version of the song I could find on youtube.

I loved it when they played Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd in this movie.

These are songs I like, where the context of the movie fermented my like or love of the song (I am really visual so if I hear a song and pair it with moving images I generally like it more than if I just hear it without any accompanying images).
