...mainly because "Country Road" is the theme song for it. And the version that's now stuck in my head is the neat version where Seiji is playing the violin and Shizuku is singing her Japanese translation of the song, and Seiji's grandfather and his Bohemian friends join in with Renaissance instruments, and the guy on the recorder does this really nice Baroque riff at the very end. The extra-cool version, IMHO.

Thanks, Pastis--now I've got to watch the movie again.
