Whoever’s job it is to pick music for “The Social Network” trailers, I want to know you. (And I know its not Aaron Sorkin, since both of these songs came out after 1975 [burn?])
“Creep”? Really? As sung by a choir of, it turns out, Belgian teenage girls, as conducted by a pair of slightly creepy bald brothers? Really, like really? (also my favorite part of this trailer – “We’ll sue him in federal court!” Federal! Court!)
And now there’s one with “Power”:

Whatever. I’m totally excited.
