But one of my favorite parts of the entire movie was when Billy Bean (Pitt)'s daughter sings him a song she's written, accompanying herself on the guitar in a music shop. It's a lovely moment, her little voice floating over this pop melody and chord progression and giving it life. Pitt's reaction is priceless—it's a moment of humanity.
I had the song stuck in my head all day yesterday, and mentioned it on twitter. The friendly Adam Austin-Andrew pointed me towards the real version of the song, which is performed by a singer named Lenka, of whom I'd never heard.
So, I thought I would share it with you all here. Want to play it? It's easy. It revolves around four basic chords on the guitar: C major, G major, A minor and F major. Then it sits on G for a couple bars at the end of each chorus.
