The National’s “Think You Can Wait” is the theme song for Thomas McCarthy-directed (and Paul Giamatti-starring) “sports comedy-drama” Win Win. Matt Berninger told HitFlix that the track, which features guest vocals from Sharon Van Etten, was inspired by McCarthy’s material: “It’s about very normal and good people trying to do their best and the struggle to be good.” He adds: “I mean, it isn’t at all narrative to what happens in the movie — we don’t mention Paul Giamatti by name or anything. But it was fun, and it’s a good song, we’re very proud of it.” Take a listen:
