You can just picture where this trippy, lo-fi track would appear in Jim Carrey’s film The Cable Guy: before our hero wins back his girl after stupidly losing her affection. And you know what? Chris O’Connor’s whispered vocals and a slo-mo drum track make it work. ”Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in My Hand” is as elegiac and wistful as any John Hughes movie ballad. B+
