She & Him Cover the Smiths on (500) Days of Summer Soundtrack

She & Him Cover the Smiths on (500) Days of Summer Soundtrack

The soundtrack for Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's upcoming romantic film (500) Days of Summer (opening in limited release July 17) looks like an awesome lineup, and we've already checked out one of the songs, the Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition," featured in the movie's trailer. Also included on the soundtrack is the Smiths' "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want," along with a cover of the song sung by Zooey Deschanel herself. Deschanel and M. Ward, as musical duo She & Him, give the tune an old-fashioned '50s feel, with Deschanel's plaintive voice telling us once more that if she gets what she wants, "Lord knows, it would be the first time."

I'm looking forward to hearing the entire soundtrack when it's released July 14, but for now it's fun to get a taste with She & Him. To check out the cover,

lislievanhouter — Yes, I know that. I was saying that the album includes both the Smiths singing their song "Please Let Me Get What I Want" as well as the version by She & Him. I'll change the wording for you.

I don't know why you have to call out and say "the Smiths' version of 'Please Let Me Get What I Want'" since it is their song.
