Music: Exit Music (For a Film)

Radiohead's song, "Exit Music," is featured at the end credits for Baz Luhrman's "Romeo + Juliet," and it was written specifically for that film. Though I guess the song is supposed to be depressing, it always makes me laugh. That is, when hearing it, I remember some of the funny scenes in Baz's movie - like pretty much anytime Leguizamo is on screen.

Anyway, here's a music video of the song set to the 1968 version of "Romeo and Juliet" (the one with a fifteen year old Olivia Hussey). Her hairstyle at the time was so distinctive that my Mom and all her friends wore it for awhile.
