Song of the Day: "Fall in Love"

I'm in instantly in love with this new track from Phantogram (a band I haven't featured here since 2010) but I'm totally distracted by a tangent. The title reminds me of one of Meryl Streep and Robert DeNiro's on-screen pairings: Falling in Love. Everyone remember that? It was their second time in a movie together.

And OMG OMG OMG there appears to be a mathematical pattern to their pairings.
1978: The Deer Hunter
1984: Falling in Love
1996: Marvin's Room
Coming in 2014: The Good House

Can you see the pattern? Of course you can, I mean you'd have to be a fucking idiot to not see it.

6 years between the first pair, 12 years between the second pair, 18 years between the third pair (in case you're a fucking idiot)

By the way, it's been forever since I saw The Deer Hunter, and was probably too young to appreciate it and certainly too freaked out by the Russian roulette scenes to watch it without my hands in front of my face. I say that as a disclaimer for my declaring Marvin's Room to be the best of the 3--my favorite of the 3 is probably a better characterization. Both movies have stellar casts doing great work but only one of them is Russian roulette-free.

Also I really like this song.
