Songs from RTRFM VHS Tracking (Revolver) show

Added on by Kenta McGrath.

I was recently a guest on the Revolver show on RTRFM, which is being hosted by Tristan Fidler (VHS Tracking) throughout June with a focus on film soundtracks. I was asked to choose a bunch of songs to play and my theme was "love". Here are the clips from the films of songs I chose; the only one I couldn't find was The Breeders' "Off You" (from Spike Jonze's Her, a film I don't like much at all). You can re-stream the show here
