Twenty-four hours in the lives of the young employees at Empire Records when they all grow up and become young adults thanks to each other and the manager. They all face the store joining a chain store with strict rules.
Alice In Chains performs in the music video "Would?" from the original motion picture soundtrack from the film Singles (1992) recorded for Columbia Records. The band plays and sings as they stand in front of a collection of photographs.
Alice in Chains,
Romantic comedy about six of Seattle's young people, most of whom live in the same apartment building and whose lives revolve around the city's ever-expanding music scene. The inter-related stories about each character's progress through the singles scene are intriguing and often very funny, and the soundtrack is a grunge fanatic's dream, with the likes of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Mudhoney.Written by
The Singles soundtrack was released three months before the film itself. Cameron Crowe told Rolling Stone in 2017 that that was the purpose. The purpose was to chum the waters for people to know that there was a movie. And the music was very timely, and Pearl Jam hadn't put out anything in awhile. Suddenly the child the studio didn't want had become the favorite child, and they put out the soundtrack early and it really helped. See more »

David (Jim True) walks down a street. His voiceover says that Steve's search for the perfect girl is a trap, and that he lives his own life like a French movie where everyone is cool and no attachments are made. He enters a beatnik club where a woman (Lara Harris) recites a poem in French. She sits down with him for a brief conversation in French and they leave together. See more »

Cute, funny and sincere...
1st watched 11/14/2004 - 7 out of 10(Dir-Cameron Crowe): Cute, funny and sincere attempt to chronicle a singles life in the 90's in Seattle. What I liked about this movie is that all the single people know that they need "someone", which is the constant struggle that goes on in their lives, but finding that "someone" isn't as easy as we think it would be. This movie does a good job of showing this. It is well-written, funny, played out well by the stars and has a nice soundtrack to fill in the voids.
It's about "people" and it has a style like a chronicled life where the characters every once in a while talk to the camera as if their lives are being documented. Excellent effort by Crowe and his crew to bring this segment of society into view for all of us.
