The song performed by Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels
), Jim Harper (John Gallagher Jr.
) and Bo (Jared Prokop
) at the end of the episode is "That's How I Got To Memphis" by Tom T. Hall
. It is heard earlier when Charlie Skinner (Sam Waterston
) is listening to Hall's 1969 recording of it because, as he explains to McAvoy, his grandson, Bo, likes it. Hall also wrote "Harper Valley P.T.A.", which was a major international hit single for country singer Jeannie C. Riley
in 1968. See more
(at around 34 mins) There is a laptop with a YouTube video titled "Schumacher Breaks Record", but the F1 cars in the video are the Ferrari of Nigel Mansell and Alain Prost, and the McLaren of Ayrton Senna from the 1990 season. At that time Michael Shumacher wasn't racing in F1 yet. See more
[In a flashback, in reference to his grandson playing "How I got to Memphis"
I asked him, "What's a New Jersey boy doing singing about Memphis?" He told me, "'Memphis' represents finding yourself, finding the right place, being where you're supposed to be, even if you realize you should have tried to get there sooner."
