Asobi Seksu - Thursday  (DL)

I’ve learned about an embarrassing number of songs from movie trailers. For instance, New Order’s “Age of Consent,” which I amazingly never heard until the Marie Antoinette trailer. (Later, I told a friend that that song was ruined for me by being in that trailer. In actuality, the opposite was true.)

Another perfect example is today’s song, “Thursday” by Asobi Seksu. I first discovered this song in the trailer of the independent film Flannel Pajamas. I never saw the film (because the film itself seems like it might be boring and have a lot of drawn-out dialogue about relationships), but the song does an amazing job of conveying what (I imagine) this film is (probably) about. And also, like the rest of the songs I post on this site, it’s great.
