“These Days (feat. Trine Dyrholm)”Gatto Ciliegia Contro Il Grande Freddo

The interview with Susan Jacobs has Jim thinking of songs that have been used memorably in films for his addition to the Desert Island Jukebox. He first remembers hearing "These Days," a song Jackson Browne wrote for Nico, in The Royal Tennenbaums. Since then it's been used in many films, but none as affecting as Nico, 1988, says Jim. This biopic follows the singer in her final years, haunted by her early legacy with The Velvet Underground and performing in punk dives to earn enough to support her drug habit. The version of "These Days (feat. Trine Dyrholm)" the film's star, performs with Gatto Ciliegia Contro Il Grande Freddo is a beautiful rendition that matches or even betters the original.
