24 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.
When a sports agent has a moral epiphany and is fired for expressing it, he decides to put his new philosophy to the test as an independent agent with the only athlete who stays with him and his former secretary.

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
Being a fan of Cameron Crowe's films, I decided to give 'Singles' a shot. It clearly isn't among his best but it has its good moments. The humour is mostly dry but not all the jokes work. It needed more punchlines. Also, I thought there was too much focus on the Kyra Sedgwick- Campbell Scott romantic track, especially since Scott is a mediocre actor at best, while the other characters aren't given enough focus as a result of which they lack development. The film drags at some points and, having watched the DVD, I thought that the deleted scenes were interesting. Like with most of Crowe's films, the soundtrack is first rate. Kyra Sedgewick and Bridget Fonda are very good while Matt Dillon has a few shining moments. Sheila Kelley is hilarious while Jim True is wasted. His character seemed interesting and I wish the writers wrote more for it. I didn't mind the movie for a one time watch but Crowe has done better than this.
