"Sally's Song" as written by and Danny Elfman Steve Bartek....
I sense there's something in the wind
That seems like tragedy's at hand
And though I'd like to stand by him
Can't shake this feeling that I have
The worst is just around the bend

And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be

What will become of my dear friend
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one

And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one

    General CommentThis song perfectly suits my situation right now...he has no idea how much I adore him or what I would do but...it may not happen for us. At least Jack and Sally ended up together in the movie.

    General CommentIt suits Fiona's voice (and her personality as an artist altogether)....describes what has been my situation for almost 5 years now. It's all about unrequited love :(

    General CommentI definitely think Fiona Apple was a good choice for this song.

    I hope the rest of the bands chosen for the soundtrack are good.
