Nick Drake's music is being heard more often in films, especially in the last 10 years or so. The first Nick Drake song I ever heard was "One of these things first" from the film "Crush" (2001).
I remember watching the TV screen very closely for the credits to find out who the composer/singer was!!
Needless to say I went to the music store that weekend & purchased the Way To Blue CD. I remember being so glad they had it, even if it was the only one. What a comfort that album was!!

If you go to imdb.com (the movie database site), there is a listing of over 17 films with Nick Drake credited as musician & performer.


The current listings are:
Lake House (2006) "Pink Moon" & "Time Has Told Me"
Fever Pitch (2005) "Northern Sky"
Garden State (2004) "One of These Things First"
My Name is Tanino (2002) "Cello Song"
Oesters van Nam Kee (2002) "River Man"
True Dreams (2002) "Cello Song"
The Good Girl (2002) "Black Eyed Dog"
Me Without You (2001) "Cello Song"
The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) "Fly"
Serendipity (2001) "One of These Things First " & "Northern Sky"
Crush (2001) "One of These Things First"
Ratcatcher (1999) "Cello Song"
Practical Magic (1998) "Black Eyed Dog"
Hideous Kinky (1998) "Road"
Le Ciel est a Nous (1997) "Saturday Sun"
Dream With the Fishes (1997) "River Man"
Kicking & Screaming (1995) "Time of No Reply"

It's amazing really... I am glad because for many who hear his voice & music on TV or film, it will lead to many more people discovering his music & being inspired as well!! Wink

Serendipity's closing love scene ends with Northern Sky, perfect really, with the ice rink, the wonderful snowflakes, ....and during the film are little snippets of Black Eyed Dog.

I should see Serependity again to see what Drake songs are actually in it..I do seem to remember Northern Sky in the background at their meeting place..the skating rink. (list updated again!) The motorcycle scene in Garden State with "One of These Things First" was nice also!! Nick's music does lend itself quite easily to the atmosphere & quiet intimacy of these films.

Great thread, got no new additions to the list though. Smile

I saw 'The Lake House' in the cinema a few month ago and was quite surprised to hear Nick's music. I sat there trying very hard not to exclaim something like: Omg, it's Nick Drake... Laughing Embarassed

Hearing Nick's music in 'The Royal Tenenbaums' was kind of weird, I believe it's a scene in which one of the characters plays a Nick Drake record to illustrate the fact it is supposed to be the early 70's in that part of the film. As if it would be common for someone to listen to Nick Drake in the early 70's... Well, it's great exposure for Nick's music anyway. Smile

The following doesn't have anything to do with film, but I don't see a point in starting a new thread just to share this with you.
I went to a dEUS concert in the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam last February and as happens at concerts, they played CDs over the PA before the show and between support and main acts to kill the time.
At one point, just after the support act had finished, which was Elbow by the way, 'Pink Moon' came on, to my delight, but it didn't end there, they played the entire album! What a way to prepare for the main act. Very Happy

A new British film released in Oct 2006 called "Driving Lessons" included a Nick Drake song credit for "Pink Moon".
The movie cast includes actor Rupert Grint and Julie Walters.
THe film is "A coming of age story about a shy teenage boy trying to escape from the influence of his domineering mother.
His world changes when he begins to work for a retired actress." (IMdB)

Has anyone seen it? I would like to add it to the Drake film list if someone has heard the song "Pink Moon" in the film. Thanks!!

I rented "The Lake House" is because it was filmed very close to where I grew up. It was wonderful to hear Nick's music while seeing scenes from my childhood on the tv.

Is Things Behind The Sun any good?

Thats the name of the movie, not the song title!

Glad to see Kicking and Screaming was remembered - nice scene in the cafe with "Time of no reply" playing. Fits the mood perfectly, as its a flashback of Grovers!

Hey, you got it! "One of These Things First" by Nick is on the "Seven Pounds" movie soundtrack.
That song has been in 4 different films, the most so far.
Thanks for the update, TAM! Very Happy

Saw the film for the second time and I must confess that besides the use of Nick's songs and some funny scenes, the movie didn't do much for me. It's a feel good movie, but the story doesn't last long.
