I’m not much of a movie buff but the song that makes me happy is, again, from a movie. I can really say that I get so attached to the few movies I’ve watched. That is the effect of not having a dose of motion pictures more often. And because of that, I am still ultimately and guiltily hooked with the action-packed comical film of 2010 -- Scott Pilgrim versus The World. I still couldn’t get enough of it up until now. I’ve watched it five times already, and I still want to watch all over again. Even now, I am still fixated by those exhilarating scenes and side-splitting spiels.
The song that makes me happy is called “We Are the Sex Bob-Omb” sung by the Sex Bob-Omb band themselves. That band doesn’t exist in reality though, but in the film, it does. SBO is composed of Stephen Spills (on vocals/guitar), Kim Pine (on drums), Young Neil (extra) and Scott Pilgrim (on bass). They sang it in the first part of the movie while Scott’s highschooler girlfriend, Knives Chau, was watching in awe. I love this song because it’s so cool. It makes me happy because whenever I listen to it, I happen to recall all the absurd scenes that got me from the movie.
So, here it is.
I personally love that music video. Have you noticed how Scott played his guitar? It made me laugh while watching it. My boyfriend even tried to mimic it, and as usual, he got it almost right. He definitely has the knack on impersonating someone who has grabbed his attention.
