Badly Drawn Boy's score for About a Boy is what propels the film from being mediocre to being very good.
"Talking shit about a pretty sunset
Blanketing opinions that i'll probably regret soon"

Finally some recognition!

Yeah, of all the ones I thought PDL wouldn't sweep, this was the main one. I don't think there's any good argument for About a Boy loosing out. But, again, la de da.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

This is one of the handful of PDL nominations I voted for.  Sure, Badly Drawn Boy's music does wonders for "About a Boy", but Jon Brion's score is visionary.  It's brilliant, it's unlike anything we've ever heard in a movie, and it elevates everything around it.

Touche.  Of course, I feel the same way about the score for "CQ", but I think I was the only one who nominated it in this category.

Shit, I love the CQ sdtrck. I forgot to nominate that one. PDL does it for me though. I LOVE this score.
The corpses all hang headless and limp bodies with no surprises and the blood drains down like devil's rain we'll bathe tonight I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls Demon I am and face I peel to see your skin turned inside out, 'cause gotta have you on my wall gotta have you on my wall, 'cause I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls collect the heads of little girls and put 'em on my wall hack the heads off little girls and put 'em on my wall I want your skulls I need your skulls I want your skulls I need your skulls

i like thomas newman's for RTP the best, but PDL ruled, so who cares.
"we'll meet again in a life when we are both cats"
"you are what you love, not what loves you"
"I don't think your an asshole Royal, I just think you're kind of a son of a bitch"
"royal with cheese"
"i'm sure you have no idea what i'm talking about...but don't worry...you will someday"
