You see, Ramsey’s character, Mya, spends a lot of time listening to a mix CD her boyfriend makes her, and one song in particular seems to be especially comforting. The print I saw at Fantasia had a fantastic Lou Reed cover, but that’s since been changed (Lou doesn’t like scary movies, it seems) to a cover of Joy Division’s “Atmosphere” done by David Wingo of Ola Podrida.
Call me unhip if you will, but I’ve never heard of either the singer nor his band, but Joy Division was the bane of my existence growing up (what can I say? I liked punk). You can check out the new song by clicking here right now. It won’t have as much impact until you see it in the movie, however. Just a word of warning.
