Something About Boys: Badly Drawn Boy and "Something to Talk About"


,br /> Today's song is from the soundtrack to the movie About a Boy, and is sung by the English singer Damon Michael Gough, also known by his stage name Badly Drawn Boy. He began his music career in 1997, and released five EPs between 1997 and 1999. He released his first album in 2000 to critical acclaim, and won the Mercury Music Prize that year. This exposure led to his being asked to score the film About a Boy, based on Nick Hornby's novel. Three singles were released from that album. He has released eight albums, though his later albums have not done as well as his earlier work in sales or in critical acclaim. In 2002, Badly Drawn Boy was named by Q Magazine as one of the 50 bands to see before you die. This song, Something to Talk About, can be found on the album About a Boy, released in 2002.
