The Led Zeppelin of sensitive screenwriters

"And the 500 Days Of Summer soundtrack is decent. Any more than decent? Well, let’s discuss. Of course there is literally nothing more predictable for an angst-infused indie twenty-something rom com than a couple bonding over The Smiths. But that’s because The Smiths are amazing. They’re the Led Zeppelin of sensitive screenwriters. A fairly mainstream Fox Searchlight soundtrack album with two Smiths songs on it does feel a little like someone’s made a trendy T-shirt out of Picasso’s Guernica, but, you know, it’s the movie business. Raping and pillaging higher art is what Hollywood is all about, God love it."
