Song #34: “Beautiful Girl” — Peter Droge & the Sinners (1996)

beautifulgirlsAs I mentioned near the close of last week, you can’t go wrong putting “Beautiful Girls” in your Netflix queue. The movie gets a burst out of the gate with the song that plays over its opening credits, the twangy “Beautiful Girl” by Pete Droge. Droge seems to be a quintessential singer-songwriter, whose overly earnest folk rock never quite achieved the velocity to escape the Seattle scene on its own; however, thanks to a few fortuitous connections, some of his songs have appeared in a bunch of movies you might have heard of. Hey, whatever else, he’s still the guy who hit it out of the park with “Beautiful Girl.”
