One of Netflix’s trending show these days is Russian Doll, the story of Nadia who keeps dying and being resurrected in a bathroom of an apartment where friends are celebrating her 36th birthday.
Every time she wakes up from her death, the music playing at the party is Gotta Give Up, a 1971 song from Harry Nilsson. This nod by the music supervisor has given the song new life. Throngs of people are now into a track that’s nearly 50 years old.
I’d ignored Nick Drake until “Pink Moon” was used in a Volkswagen commercial in 1999.
What about you? Any examples you want to share?
