Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Cool Hand Luke / Plastic Jesus
I just noticed something mildly of interest with regard to Plastic Jesus:

The heavy handed commentary on race relations thinly disguised as a featured film called CRASH, there is a running gag with Larenz Tate's character keeping a plastic Jesus with a magnetic base in his pocket and every time he and Ludacris' character steal a car, he sticks it on the dashbaord. The Plastic Jesus figures prominently in a tragic misunderstanding at the end of the film.

Anyway - in one of those annoying "Music inspired by" pseudo-soundtrack CDs that are all the rage, Billy Idol does a version of Plastic Jesus. I'm gonna have to see if I can get that on iTunes!

Music from and Inspired by Crash
