Went to watch the new Bruce Willis Sci-Fi/time travel blockbuster last night, Looper.
Halfway through, totally out of the blue, the soundtrack was Richard & Linda Thompson's "I Want To See The Bright Light's Tonight". The director must be a fan, couldn't see how the song fitted in myself. No matter, great song, and an even greater album..
