A: But in actual fact, Sam and Joon are the ones who make love, because if it were Benny and Joon, it would be brother and sister. Ick!! (thanks to Iamevilhomer, Anchorage, Alaskaadd more info
A: It is the exact same song that was there when they were kissing. "Have a Little Faith In Me' by John Hiatt. And it is Sam and Joon, but don't worry I got mixed up too... LOL. (thanks to JohnnyDeppLover, Irelandadd more info

Q: What is the song playing when Benny is walking on what looks like railroad tracks? Joon is already home and he's kicked Sam out. It's right before he enlists Sam's help. (from Lara in US)
A: "Can't Find My Way Home", originally by Blind Faith. (thanks to Michael, Floridaadd more info

Q: What song from this movie has the words "...Hey Hey Hey Hey, what's going on..." and who sings it? (from bob-O in San Antonio TX.)
A: "What's Up" by Four Non-Blondes (thanks to Drew, NYCadd more info

Q: I think the song that plays over the flashback of their parent's car accident (and that Benny and Joon sing a cappella) is "The Sweet By & By." But I don't know what artist sings that version. Anyone?  (from Drew in NYC)
A: The song you are referring to is a Christian hymn also known as "There's a Land That is Fairer Than Day". It was written by Sanford F. Bennett in 1868. The music was written by Joseph P. Webster during that same time period. Many country and gospel artists over the years have performed this song. The version sang in the movie is one that is used in the hymnal.
