Part of "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind" soundtrack there were featured two songs by an indie group The Willowz: "Something" and "Keep On Looking" - written by Richie Eaton and performed by The Willowz. The soundtrack is one of the most important pieces for the motion pictures to come intimately alive.

Take a look at two videoclips featuring The WILLOWZ "Jubilee" and "Icons and Tricks" directed by Toben Seymour, co-creator with Ace Norton of
Commondeer Productions, two visual authors whose works make their portrayed postmodern bands look sense datum.
Inventive video-makers Ace Norton and Toben Seymour are both friends of this jaw-dropping handsome actor: Emile Hirsch.

"While in college at The University of Southern California’s School of Cinema, Toben created Commondeer with a group of friends who would shoot guerilla-style music videos on the weekend for musicians such as The Willowz, Neon Blonde and A Gun Called Tension.With his finger firmly planted on the pulse of the uncanny, Seymour has directed videos for Will.I.Am, Moby, The Willowz, Louis XIV, Herman Dune, Maps, Pony Up, Prints, Neon Blonde, Lying In States, Little Wings, A Gun Called Tension, What Made Milwaukee Famous, Freschard, The Honorary Title and The Duhks.He lives in Venice, California".

Jennifer's Body has a pretty cool soundtrack, but it had some startling exclusions...why not use "Jennifer's Body" by Hole?

They left off some awesome songs that were actually in the movie like “Sacre Couer” by It Dies Today, and I think that might be because they’re trying to aim this at teen girls and that song, cool as it is, might be deemed too heavy by the corporate dudes. Lame. I guess I'll just have to make my own mixtape version of the soundtrack.

Still, kickass movie that has the right mixture of gore, camp, and dark humor, and there are still a number of great tunes on the official soundtrack.

welcome to Weirdland, Brett!

sorry of having replied to you late, I didn't understand the decision either of not including "Jennifer's Body" song in the movie. I enjoyed the movie a lot anyway, I'm glad you liked it too, I think it had a self-conscious dark style.
