I fell in love with this soundtrack! It makes me want to smile and cry at the same time. Is is as melancholic as the movie itself. Ryan Gosling was excellent in this movie. I still can’t stop thinking about that movie. It impressed me quite well, and it is already on my most favorite movies of all time. I don’t know why, but I just loved this. It was sad and exciting at the same time. And Ryan Gosling was so heart-breakingly good! I almost lost it when I saw that scene in the church :'(
This song fits perfectly to that movie, especially that scene in which they eat ice-cream with Jason and take photos in front of the motor cycle. It is a sad song which has a nostalgic effect. I love that, nostalgia mixed with melancholy.
