A movie called High Fidelity
was released in 2000. Starring John Cusack and Jack Black, the film (based on a 1995 book by Nick Hornby), is set in a record store where music geekdom abounds. This song doesn't appear in the film, but Costello's song "Shipbuilding
" does. Among sanctimonious record store employees, Costello was a favorite, so it's fitting that he is on the soundtrack along with Bob Dylan, Stereolab and The Velvet Underground.
