Zach Braff Is The Music Man

I'm impressed -- not to mention a little surprised - at how much mojo actor-director Zach Braff got out of "Garden State." Paul Simon announced in concert a few days ago that seeing his song "The Only Living Boy In New York" showcased in that movie made him fall in love with the song again and start including it in his set list for the first time in years. Of course, that movie's soundtrack also helped to turn The Shins into a potential breakout act. And now Billboard runs a feature story as soon as Braff announces the track listing for the soundtrack to his new movie "The Last Kiss." Ray Lamontagne and Amos Lee could certainly use the boost and people will probably fall in love with Rufus Wainwright's "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk." The tracks:

"Chocolate," Snow Patrol
"Star Mile," Joshua Radin
"Pain Killer," Turin Brakes
"Warning Sign," Coldplay
"Ride," Cary Brothers
"El Salvador," Athlete
"Hide and Seek," Imogen Heap
"Reason Why," Rachael Yamagata
"Hold You in My Arms," Ray Lamontagne
"Prophecy," Remy Zero
"Paper Bag," Fiona Apple
"Today's the Day," Aimee Mann
"Arms of a Woman," Amos Lee
"Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk (Reprise)," Rufus Wainwright
"Paperweight," Schuyler Fisk and Joshua Radin
