“Seven Nation Army” The White Stripes
Okay, so only two of Gregory’s seven sibs were present at the ill-fated wedding, but every time I hear the line: “A seven nation army couldn’t hold me back,” I picture Gregory fighting his way to the altar.
“Belleville Rendez-Vous” from The Triplets of Belleville
I listened to the soundtrack to this movie constantly while I was writing this book. I’m still aghast that it lost out best song at the Oscars to that boring Lord of The Rings thing.
“They” by Jem
I was listening to Jem’s debut album Finally Woken pretty much whenever I wasn’t listening to The Triplets of Belleville soundtrack. I picked the first track because it reminds me a lot of the end of the On the Way to the Wedding, but the whole album is fabulous.
“The Impression that I Get” by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones
“I’m not a coward, I’ve just never been tested. I’d like to think if I was, I would pass.” This line just always makes me think of Gregory (who did get tested, and I think he passed!)
