Songs in Cinema: '(500) Days of Summer'

In my mind, the most-anticipated soundtrack of the summer-movie season is out this week... and so is the film. The anti-love story '(500) Days of Summer' stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. In other words, there is an actor for me and Mrs. Linear Tracking Lives! I have no idea if this movie will be any good, but I know the music is getting two thumbs up... way up! For me, the best moment is She & Him covering The Smiths. I have read this version of the song is not really in the movie, but I don't care. Give it a listen. Check out the tracklist too. It's a great mix of '80s memories and presently relevant indie performers.
