    Summary quotation from Wikipedia:

    Especially for You is the first full-length album from New Jersey-based rock band The Smithereens.

    The album is notable for the hit “Blood and Roses”, which has been featured in multiple movie and TV productions. Producer Don Dixon’s co-production work on R.E.M.’s Murmur and Reckoning albums added attention to the record’s initial release. The album today is highly regarded by most critics, and was one of Kurt Cobain’s favorite albums, as noted in his journal.

“Blood and Roses” was used:

  • as the theme song from the 1986 movie Dangerously Close
  • in “Duty and Honor”, a 1987 episode of the TV series Miami Vice
  • in the 1997 movie Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion
