Listening Post

This song had new life breathed into it thanks to the inspired decision to use it as the title music for Donnie Darko (the original cut; the Director's Cut swapped it out for the song director Richard Kelly had originally wanted: INXS's Never Tear Us Apart.)

Regardless, it remains one of the truly great songs of the 80s -- or any other decade for that matter.

Here's Echo and the Bunnymen's The Killing Moon.

I remember watching the director's cut of Dinnie Darko and noticing that they had changed this song, and I was royally pissed. There were several other song changes, but for some reason this one really stuck out.

Maybe I'm just weird.

Actually, no, I AM really weird.
