    Quite possibly, my favorite movie. In prepping for a viewing of the VHS in a few days, I'm putting together a playlist of the songs and would like to include "Gee." Can anyone tell me the two songs it should be placed between? Can't seem to remember. Thanks! :)

    I'm answering myself...lol. I just watched the tape much sooner than expected and, as others here stated, it's very early on and can really get lost in the dialogue. For anyone interested, it's between Sixteen Candles and Runaway. :)

    Part of the reason for this is 1962 wasn't ancient history in 1973. It was still a fresh memory. That's one of the main reasons the film feels so accurate in general. It would be a lot harder today to pull off a film set in 1962.

    On a similar thought, the cultural and aesthetic differences between 1962 and 1973 were quite vast, and Lucas and team went to great lengths to accurately capture the feel of 1962. Imagine today making a film set 11 years in the past, in 2000. It wouldn't take nearly as much effort to do so. Excepting the fact that computers have gotten sleeker and handheld communication devices are everywhere now, clothing styles and other aesthetics haven't evolved all that much.
