During the end of the movie and over the credits, the producers chose a Van Morrison tune from 1979. “Bright Side of the Road” was the lead cut from Morrison’s album “Into the Music.” Although released as a single, the song failed to make it into the Hot 100 – rather peaking at 110.
“Bright Side of the Road” features Van Morrison on guitar, vocals, and harmonica. It also features piano, a rhythm section, horns, backup vocals, tabla, and violin. Toni Marcus initially plays the violin pizzicato and it almost sounds like a banjo. She later bows it as a lead instrument. The backup vocals were provided by Katie Kissoon – half of the duo of Mac and Katie Kissoon. You can’t be sad when you listen to the “Bright Side of the Road.”
