      It's a straight reissues with no bonus tracks, so maybe Elektra didn't think
      it was worth publicizing much. But "A Certain Girl" exists in digital
      form, both there and on iTunes. >

      The use of Street Hassle was superb, and the Pink Floyd track plays a
      substantial role in the film. Baumbach tends to make good use of music
      (especially if you like Wareham, who appears in High-Ball); Kicking &
      Screaming's featured tracks are by The Pixies, Nick Drake, and Freedy
      Johnston (best use of Johnston outside of Kingpin).
