Pat’s Notes

“‘A Girl Like You’ was initially a ‘work for hire’, written for the film Say Anything. Writer/director Cameron Crowe (Fast Times At Ridgemont High, Singles) gave me a copy of the screenplay and a VHS work print of the ‘film-in-progress’ for me to work with. I interpreted the best bits of dialogue between the main characters and told the story of the movie lyrically, but I was careful to write a set of lyrics that stood on their own, that told a story independent of the film as well.”
