  1. I wonder if they’ll release a separate album for the music in the movie besides just the Theodore Shapiro score?

    • Carol says:

      You can download the Eels I like Birds for 0.99 and Surfin’ birds as well, but what I can’t seem to find, because I don’t know the title, is the last song played – something like This will be yours someday???

      • Allie says:

        “this could all be yours”. Is by Guster, I believe.

  2. C Bihl says:

    I really enjoyed the movie and the music, but I don’t see the “I Love Birds” song. ? ? ? Is it hidden somewhere in a different title?
