Suede - So Young

Released in 1993. Written by Brett Anderson and Bernard Butler. The music video featured children from the Kent coastal town of Whistable.

“There are two types of song on the soundtrack: ones about Gary and his hedonism, and ones reminiscing about old times. I think the music is the biggest thing that helps you understand where Gary is coming from — without these tunes, you’d be wondering why he’s so obsessed with this time and why he wants to go back. So Young is my favourite Suede song and that was always going to be the one that they walk around town to. Bernard Butler’s guitar has a kind of Western twang to it, and I just thought, ‘This is perfect for the guys walking around in slow motion.’

“I have frequent bouts of nostalgia and often wonder why, even though I’m happy in my life, I constantly want to go backwards. Usually it’s hearing a song like this that triggers some sense of sweet melancholy. So Young is a beautiful song, and it reminds me every time of the audio cassette I had of Suede’s debut album. Putting it on the soundtrack, it makes it feel like Gary’s mix tape has permeated the entire movie.”
