Say Anything writer/director Cameron Crowerecently revealedJohn Cusack’s character was not blasting Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes” through his boom box on set during production of the film.
“It was a completely different song John Cusack was playing when we filmed. What he’s actually playing is Fishbone’s ‘Bonin’ in the Boneyard.’ John was a big Fishbone fan and turned us all onto the band. But when we watched the scene as filmed, with that tune playing outside Diane Court’s window, the effect wasn’t particularly romantic or yearning. It was: 'Hey girl, I love Fishbone and I’m not going to let you sleep.'”
