I watched Elizabethtown tonight, and during the whole movie, the non-lyrical music kept striking a chord in me (no pun intended). I felt like I'd heard something like it before, and about halfway through the movie, I realized it sounded really similar to the music in Almost Famous. I loved it- and I'm not usually a huge fan of instrumental music.
When the movie ended, I immediately looked it up online and was so proud of myself! Almost Famous and Elizabethtown were both directed by Cameron Crowe! Who is married to Nancy Wilson of the band Heart. She wrote a lot of the instrumental pieces for Almost Famous AND Elizabethtown!
Two great movies, two great soundtracks. If you haven't seen either, I would highly recommend them- Almost Famous is better, but Elizabethtown was great in it's quirky little way.
