Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment plays the ultimate spy game as two best friends fight for the right of one woman’s hand in THIS MEANS WAR. Starring Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line), Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), the laugh-out-loud comedy gets even better on Blu-ray with three alternate endings that answer the question – what if she chose the other guy?
Below is a little info on a few love/hate songs that are featured in movie This Means War.
“Alison” by Elvis Costello
Elvis Costello’s 1977 song “Alison” is, as Costello himself has said, about disappointing someone. The song is often cited as one of the greatest songs of all time, and has been featured in numerous movies, including Adaptation and Get Over It, and has been covered by a wide variety of artists, including Linda Ronstadt and Brandon Boyd.
“Love is a Battlefield” by Pat Benatar
Pat Benatar’s 1983 single “Love is a Battlefield” is, to date, her highest charting single in the United States. The song won a Grammy for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance, and the video (in which Benatar plays a teenager who is thrown out of her house and turns to prostitution) was nominated for an MTV Video Music Award.
“You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette
Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” was the lead single from her 1995 album Jagged Little Pill. The song deals with the brutal aftermath of a breakup, and the identity of who the song was written about has been a point of contention since its release. The song peaked at number six on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and won two Grammy Awards.
“Since U Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson
Kelly’s Clarkson’s 2004 single “Since U Been Gone” is about a woman who’s happy following the demise of her troubled relationship. The song reached number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and won a Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. The song has been covered many times since its release, including memorable versions by people like Ted Leo, Tokyo Police Club and Kidz Bop.
“Smile” By Lily Allen
Lily Allen’s 2006 song “Smile” not only helped catapult her to stardom, but it also deals with the betrayal at the hands of her boyfriend while enjoying his anguish. The popular song charted in many countries and has made appearances on numerous “best of” lists since its release.
