Pretty Sweet의 Cory Kennedy의 파트는 스케잇 비디오 파트의 절제된 미학을 보여주는 완벽한 파트였는데 역시 배경음악을 빼놓을 수가 없습니다. 처음에는 엔딩 크레딧에서 곡 소스를 찾으려고 노력했는데 아무리 봐도 안보이길래 역시 구글링을 통하여 검색하니 바로 나오네요. 가사로 보나 리듬으로 보나 전형적인 미국스러움이 음악 전체적으로 흐르는 것이 딱 Cory의 스타일과 맞아 떨어지네요. 말 나온 김에 가사 공부좀 해 보겠습니다.

I was a little too tall
Could’ve used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my ’60 Chevy
Workin’ on mysteries without any clues
Workin’ on our night moves
Trying’ to make some front page drive-in news
Workin’ on our night moves in the summertime
In the sweet summertime

We weren’t in love oh no far from it
We weren’t searching for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Living by the sword
And we’d steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods
I used her she used me
But neither one cared
We were getting our share

Workin’ on our night moves
Trying to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin’ on out night moves
In the summertime
And oh the wonder
Felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I woke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain’t it funny how the night moves
When you just don’t seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in
