Here is the video of an emerging favorite favorite of mine.


But I like this one more. This has to be my favorite in the soundtrack I suppose. I don’t know where I have first heard it though. I remember sitting there at the movies, listening to this song and thinking, “There’s a familiar song… Where have I heard of that before?” In fact, I googled away but did not find the answer. I even searched for it in my soundtracks but have not found it.

This is not the official video but I like it!

If you want to hear the non-acoustic version, here is the link to that video.


Going through the (500) Days of Summer Fan blog, I found this one. Great video! Love it!
