Portishead - SOS
"We have far more in common than that which divides us.”
“Beth came to mind because she has this incredible – she feels like Helen [Mirren] to me; she has the vulnerability and the power, simultaneously. So the song was written with Beth in mind; there was never any question of anyone else, and we were very proud that we could show her the film and she said ‘Yes’ when she saw it. And we’ve actually had some people think that it’s Helen singing, but Helen will tell you that she doesn’t.”
Music from the 2010 Motion Picture Soundtrack.
