About A Boy - Badly Drawn Boy (2002)


About A Boy
Composer: Damon Gough
Best remembered for the songs provided by Damon Gough (AKA ‘Badly Drawn Boy’) – most notably Silent Sigh – About A Boy’s soundtrack resulted from filmmaking brothers Chris and Paul Weitz listening to Gough’s work as they were adapting Nick Hornby’s book for the screen. So, naturally enough, they asked Gough to craft the majority of the music heard in the movie, as well as using A Minor Incident, which Hornby himself has listed as one of the tracks that hasmost influenced his life. A radio-friendly, endlessly re-listenable score was born, and one that avoided the bland selection of covers that had usually accompanied a Hugh Grant comedy.
