News of Elliott Smith's death reminds me that I once chose his cover of "Because" as one of the songs I'd want played at my own memorial service. (I think I was talking to Noah about this at the time. This is the sort of thing that we used to discuss on a regular basis.) Interestingly enough, this cover of "Because" is also on my list of the best closing credit songs of all time, thanks to its use in American Beauty. This probably isn't a coincidence.
