The soundtrack song "God Give Me Strength" was composed by Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello under curious circumstances. Since both men were on opposites sides of the Atlantic (US & UK), the song evolved over the course of several long-distance calls and alternate exchanges of recorded snippets left on answering machines.

Grace Of My Heart is a great rock-n-roll movie. It is also a very good character based drama. The cast is very good with Illeana Douglas and John Turturro turning in great performances. The director, Allison Anders, has made a very tight and well constructed story. The music is great and I also enjoyed Matt Dillon's performance as a paranoid musical genius. This is a very good movie.
