It is tough…

The difference between the songs used in the just released DVD of “Watchmen” and the the just released movie “(500) Days Of Summer” is not that one has a 100 million budget and can therby pay extortionate royalties and the other can’t and certainly not that one has a real sing singer in Zoey Deschanel…
