Mark Webb discusses the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack in detail

Cool guy director Mark Webb strikes again! Mark has given The Playlist an exclusive, in-depth look into the music of 500 Days of Summer. The Playlist had no problem emphasizing how great it was for Mark to offer this really cool insight into every song from the film, as well as details about the complicity of licensing.

Mark Webb on The Smiths “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out”:

It’s an extremely brief but important use. Story point. Originally we were just cleared for the publishing – just so [Zooey Deschanel's character] Summer could sing a line from the song. We ended up playing the song louder on [Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character] Tom’s headphones so the audience could here what she’s singing along to – which, of course, required a master use license.
