Funny, that's the third time I've head the American Beauty soundtrack being mentioned in the last couple of weeks.

It was one of the "50 Best Film Soundtracks" in the Sunday Observer Magazine.  (A stupid list, in my opinion as it was all about films like "The Wizard of Oz"; no mention of any films I would have voted for, like "Quadrophenia", "Tommy", "Reservoir Dogs", "A Scanner Darkly" or "Son of Sam", etc.  It did mention a few good choices though, like "Pulp Fiction", "Trainspotting" and "The Graduate".)

But, this reminded me that "Baba O'Riley" was used throughout the film's trailer.  You may want to try and track that down on YouTube, say.  I'd forgotten about The Seeker being used in the film though.

And in "Heroes" this week, one of the characters said that he had "sat in a car, with his dying wife, just listening to the American Beauty Soundtrack".
