The Golden Rock song of the day - 4/24/07

Today's song of the day was originally from the film Popeye, but my inspiration came from P.T. Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love, which in my strange film geek mind is one of the best romantic comedies ever made. From Punch-Drunk Love's soundtrack, it's Shelley Duvall's "He Needs Me."

Why? Because even though Popeye is known to be a pretty crappy film, and the singing is kind of childish, its repetition in Punch-Drunk Love actually worked for the dreamy nature of that particular section of the film.

Here's the trailer for Punch-Drunk Love (which features the song).
