About a Boy - Original Motion Picture Soundtrack by Badly Drawn Boy LP Vinyl Record

In his downtime between debut and sophomore albums, musical genius Badly Drawn Boy (aka Damon Gough) decided to approach the filmmakers adapting Nick Hornby's acclaimed novel “About a Boy” regarding the soundtrack for the 2002 film starring Hugh Grant. 

Gough's sublimely literate, disaffected yet still charmingly breezy pop music fits the story of life's apparent losers at two stages, one an apathetic womanizer approaching his 40s, the other a bullied misfit boy passing into his teens, between whom an unlikely friendship ensues. 

Badly Drawn Boy's take on "About a Boy" weaves a mournful, yet upbeat tapestry drawing from its source material while managing to enrich the story itself. There are even some pop megahit hooks such as in the rolling "Silent Sigh" and in the head-bobbing, ostensible theme song "Something To Talk About."
