Full list of films feating ES's music?

Postby sonofme » Tue Jul 05, 2016 7:38 am

Hello folks,

Just wondering whether anyone had made a list of all the films/movies that feature Elliott's music?

I ask because a little while ago I watched the absolutely fantastic film I Am Love (original title "Io sono l'amore") by Luca Guadagnino in 2009. I was so surprised that one of the characters is listening to Pretty (Ugly Before) on her headphones at one point! Has anyone else seen this? Can't find a clip on YouTube...

So what does the list of films look like? Note that this is only feature films, apart from one short. Another list is needed for TV. EDITED 03/10/16:

    Good Will Hunting (1997-Gus Van Sant) – No Name #3, Say Yes, Between the Bars, Angeles, Miss Misery

    Hurricane Streets (1997-Morgan J. Freeman) - Say Yes

    The Maker (1997-Tim Hunter) - Ballad of Big Nothing, Cupid's Trick

    American Beauty (1999-Sam Mendes) – Because (John Lennon & Paul McCartney)

    Keeping The Faith (2000-Edward Norton) - Pitseleh

    The Royal Tenembaums (2001-Wes Anderson) – Needle In The Hay

    Southlander (2001-Steve Hanft) - Splitzville, Snowbunny's Serenade

    Antitrust (2001-Peter Howitt) - Son of Sam

    Paperboys* (2001-Mike Mills) – Happiness

    Now or Never (Ora o mai più) (2003-Lucio Pellegrini) - Say Yes

    The Girl Next Door (2004-Luke Greenfield) - Angeles

    Thumbsucker (2005-Mike Mills) – Trouble (Cat Stevens), Let’s Get Lost, Thirteen (Alex Chilton & Chris Bell)

    The Austian Method (Die Österreichische Methode) (2006-ensemble) - Tomorrow, Tomorrow

    Paranoid Park (2007-Gus Van Sant) – Angeles, The White Lady Loves You More

    The Go-Getter (2007-Martin Hynes) - Coast to Coast

    I Am Love (Io sono l'amore) (2009-Luca Guadagnino) – Pretty (Ugly Before)

    Up In The Air (2009-Josh Reitman) – Angel In The Snow

    American Pie presents The Book of Love (2009-John Putch) - Say Yes

    The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito) (2011-Pedro Almodóvar) – Between the Bars

    Stuck In Love (2012-Josh Boone) – Between the Bars

    Love, Rosie (2014-Christian Ditter) – Son of Sam

    Whisky Tango Foxtrot (2016-Glenn Ficarra & John Requa) – Going Nowhere

*documentary short

More work to do on this list, so I'll keep updating (good ol' IMDB). Thanks for submissions folks!

Thanks ghostnote! This thread does appear to be pointless duplication on my part - sorry folks.

I'll close the thread, unless anyone has objections?

I just woke up from a weird dream that was shockingly pertinent to this thread haha.
I was watching the show Community with a friend and it started playing the intro of "Independence Day" in the background, and I thought, "I don't remember seeing Community on the Wikipedia list of ES soundtrack inclusions. I wonder if it's on the list at Alphabet Town?"
Then I came here to check after I woke up, and at some point realized it was just a dream.
So... that's my aimless anecdote for you, sorry.

Anyway, I dont have objections to the thread being closed, but I also dont have objections to it being kept open. Maybe it could be nice for people to talk about the list here if they wanted? I myself dont mind either way :)

The Wikipedia list might actually be incomplete. I had two friends independently tell me that Between the Bars was used on an episode of Blacklist. I've never watched the show myself, and I'm not sure which episode it plays in, but it's not included here. So just as a heads up, the Wikipedia list isn't up to date. :)

This had reverted to the back burner - thanks for the reminder! I'll try and work on this list again soon, sticking to feature films :)

Today someone told me that in episode 5 of 13 Reasons Why, Elliott Smith's cover of "Thirteen" is played. :)
