you didn't answer q. 3.

I don't think The Flys sound Brit at all.. and yay for Dinosaur Jr.

Hmm. For the last q. I should've put the Spanish version of Roy Orbison's 'Crying' off the Mulholland Drive soundtrack..

Couldn't come up with a name for question 3... I kinda like all of my CDs...
I remember when first hearing Carol, I was certain that that was by some brit indie rock band. I was ultimately suprised hearing it's actually Maor Cohen!
And yeah DinoJr. are my favorite depression soundtrack and the distortion usually lets it all out.
