Two Great Soundalike Tracks

I was recently discussing how I could see the great track For Tomorrow by Emerald Park being used in a film or TV programme as a soundtrack. It is was agreed that it would be great as a soundtrack to a montage, maybe some friends moving in to a house and decorating. Then low and behold I'm watching the last episode of the great Spaced series and on comes the Stanton Lick by Lemon Jelly . Not only is it a very similar track to For Tomorrow but it's used in a montage about a group of friends. OK so they don't move in to the house together (they already live together) or paint anything but you get the idea.

If you haven't discovered Spaced yet it is a fantastic series based on a group of friends who live in a house together, the writers pay great homage to films such as Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Scarface etc. It's made by the same writer / director team that brought you Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Check it out now.

Oh and for those of you who have seen the series check this out on YouTube I might call my first baby Luke...
