    Thank you so much!
    I greatly appreciate it. I just saw the film last night in theaters and I was trying to find out the artists and names of songs played in the movie. I got ‘Chains of Love’, but I could not read the artist. Somehow I missed the Explosions in the Sky track and Ultra Orange tracks…which I believe both played in the movie. I know that ‘Pale Eyes’ by Lou Reed is in the film, as well as ‘Green Grass’ by Tom Waits.
    I also heard another familiar favorite tune. There is a French song that I first heard on the Dreamers soundtrack…I believe it’s by Jean Constatin…anyhow, it must be a fairly famous French tune.

    The famous french tune in the opening credits is probably “La Mer”
