The soundtrack.

If you think that it’s strange that a movie set in the late eighties has a lot of Velvet Underground on the soundtrack – guess again.

I’m not sure exactly what combination of factors made the Velvets so popular in the eighties – but they were.

I think that the releases of VU and Another View in 1985 and ’86 certainly had something to do it.

After starting the movie with “Bastards of the Young,” Greg Mottola follows up with “Here She Comes Now.”

Later in the movie “Satellite of Love” and “Pale Blue Eyes” figure prominently as well.

One of many nice touches that makes the movie feel like 1987.
