Song of the Week 9/21/07

Wreckless Eric - "Whole Wide World"

I'm not one to often fall for songs featured in climatic scenes in films (the use of Aimee Mann's "Wise Up" in Magnolia notwithstanding) but damn, the placement of "Whole Wide World" in Stranger than Fiction just floored me. I won't spoil it if you haven't seen the film but it proved to me once and for all that Will Ferrell is much, much more than a great comedic actor. Fiction is a great quirky film that I regret waiting to see until it popped up on cable. And how could I not like a film that uses the music of Spoon throughout?
