The cold weather is upon us, and whenever winter rolls around (or at least for the past few years), I think about one of my favorite songs that always reminds me of this time of year – “I Love N.Y.E.” by Badly Drawn Boy. This song is originally from the film soundtrack for 2002’s About A Boy. It is an instrumental track that has been used not only in this movie, but also in an episode of Sex and the City and a Starbucks commercial from what memory serves. And to my surprise the other night, it is now being used in a commercial for a drug called Seroquel XR, some sort of anti-depressant. That’s sort of, well, depressing!
As an added bonus, since the commercial caught my attention when I heard “I Love N.Y.E.,” it also features an exterior shot of The Art Theatre in Long Beach, one of our favorite theaters to frequent.
