Free Blood, 'Never Hear Surf Music Again' ('127 Hours,' 2010)
Hiker Aaron Ralston's favorite band was Phish. He was so obsessed that in the movie, Boyle has Kate Mara look into James Franco's camcorder and say, "Aaron, you're never going to get a girlfriend if you keep singing Phish lyrics." But Boyle just couldn't bear to include a Phish track. "Listen, I tried listening to Phish out of respect to Aaron," he says. "I listened to it endlessly, continually. But I just thought, I can't. So I didn't. And then we were scouting locations in a truck, and Suttirat Larlarb, the designer on the film, was playing Free Blood, and it drives you into the beginning of the film. It's seriously quirky, like Aaron."
