Q: What was the song James McAvoy was playing on the piano in the bar? I'm dying to find out. (from Ashley in CA,Monterey Park,USA)
A: "Waking Life" is the song playing while James McAvoy is playing the piano in the bar. (thanks to Melinda, Medford, OR, USAadd more info

A: Is it "On My Mind"? I can't seem to find it anywhere... I'm also trying to find it. (thanks to Chantelle, Cincinnati, OH USAadd more info
A: It's definitively not "On My Mind." I'm a Sunday Driver's fan and only watched this movie because this song was in it. I have not been able to find it anywhere. (thanks to J, Spainadd more info
A: "Waking Life" is interwoven with the song he is playing at the bar. I'm listening to it right now on Myspace, and the lyrics while she's at the aquarium match. I was wondering about this, too, and I'm pretty sure that's the song; they probably just embellished on it with the piano. I guess there's not a version available that includes the extra piano.
