So I heard Superstar in the Radio Today...
 
I was coming home from work, when this song pops out. Normally I would not be all that shocked, but it was in the section where people vote for the song, and this one was number 3. So the only reason, and the obvious one is that the exposure that it got was from Juno. Let's get ready to welcome the new fans.

i fucking hated juno. well maybe thats a little harsh and pretentious, the girl was funny and sweet and i guess, but fucking jason bateman's charachter was awful. middle aged jingle writer trying to fuck 16 year old pregnant girl, and i hated the music references, it was trying wayyyyyy to hard to be cool. michael cera saved the movie.

i think you were SUPPOSED to hate the jason bateman character

sonic life!

The SY version of "Superstar" played at my wedding. Beat that indie-flick.

I think Bateman's character was just a dork that didn't really know what he wanted.

I fucking loved Juno... saw it three times (and would gladly go again).
And new fans? Yeah right, dude, it's going to be exactly like in Juno. Sure, Superstar is pretty and nice and soft, but do you really think that the vast majority will like, say Confusion is Sex?

Superstar was also used in the trailer for HIGH TENSION. I didn't see a huge swarm of converts then.

Dude, it'll happen. It always happens when Sonic Youth has even the smallest amount of a pop culture boost.

i liked juno. i thought it was pretty funny. kind of cheesy at times but funny. i also thought it was cool to see the michael and george michael bluth in the same movie. even though they didn't share a scene together.

HaydenAsche 01.23.2008 10:43 PM

George Michael Bluth is so fucking fine!

wilffiv 01.23.2008 11:45 PM
