"Something to Talk About" as written by Andrew Dean, Ben Wolff, Louisa Gabriella Bobb and Benjamin Barson....
I've been dreaming of the things I've learnt about a boy
Whose bleeding, celebrate to elevate
The joy is not the same without the pain

Ipso facto
Using up your oxygen, you know I'm shallow
Calling out for extra help
You've got to let me in or let me out

0h something to talk about
Yeah something to talk about

I've been dreaming of the things I've learnt about a boy
Whose leaving, nothing else to chance again
You've got to let me in or let me out

Oh something to talk about
Yeah something to talk about

    General Commentyeah. this song really stuck out when I saw About A Boy ... so I had to get the soundtrack, and fell in love with Badly Drawn Boy (who I'd only heard once before) ...
    I love the line "the joy is not the same without the pain." that is so incredibly true. gosh. I just love this band.

    General CommentIt's at this point I lived in the UK... During my visit I heard BDB on 7 (!) seperate occasions on just the normal radio, and everybody knew BDB.... Here they're just like "wha-?".

    General CommentHa, this song probably stuck out in the movie becos they play it like every 5 sec. Good song. Good movie. And Badly Drawn Boy isn't a band... it's just a guy. His real name is Damon Gough.

    General Commentapart from hearing 'once around the block' i heard this song, like most of you, from 'about a boy' and its just one of those songs that make you feel good, like you can listen to when you drive along in the car. i love the line 'you've got to let me in or let me out'. After hearing this, i feel led to go and buy the soundtrack. thanx for a good song mr badly drawn boy!

    General CommentI first heard this song from watching about a boy and i loved. I just love to put it on in the car on a nice summer day. I can always put it on and feel better. BDB is a great artist and I hope he gets noticed more in the states here. The video is realy good. If you want to watch it just go to launch.com.
