Music Video: Sondre Lerche, "To Be Surprised" from Dan in Real Life

As I mentioned earlier today, one of the few standout things about Dan in Real Life, which plods into theaters today, is the soundtrack, provided entirely by Sondre Lerche (well, except for one cover of "Let My Love Open the Door"). I've been a huge fan of Lerche's loungey style and smooth voice for years now. I've even seen the slight, adorable Norwegian with the foppish hairstyle perform live, and he's a real class act.

His music in Dan in Real Life manages to enhance scenes that would otherwise lie flat; indeed, his music often comes as a relief, indicating that we can relax, enjoy the visuals and the relaxing tunes without being subjected to some more uninteresting dialogue.

Recently Lerche went on Letterman to perform his song "To Be Surprised" which is featured prominently in the film. You can take or leave Dan in Real Life but definitely take a listen to Lerche's music. This song is happy, and yet leaves me feeling slightly melancholic as well. To can check out the video of Lerche performing on Letterman,

I hope this gives Lerche more publicity here in the states, I love his stuff. (And "Faces Down" is great!)

It's probably bad that as a Norwegian, I'm more enthusiastic about Letterman's mangled (though surprisingly good) pronounciation of Lerche's name than the actual singing. ;)

Finally, Sondre Lerche is getting some recognition. One of his CDs, Faces Down, is a real favorite of mine. =]
