One of the most iconic offerings from the ’90s soundtrack, though, was The Counting Crows‘ “Colorblind,” the song Sebastian and Annette’s love scene is set to. 

Yet, the filmmakers initially had a completely different song in place. 

“For that scene, there was this Smashing Pumpkins song called ‘To Sheila,’ which fit perfectly. If you turn off the Counting Crows and play the scene to ‘To Sheila,’ it actually works quite nicely. And [it seemed like] we were getting the song, it was great,” Kumble told Cosmo. “Billy Corgan was watching the movie. It was down to the wire, and then they give me the call: ‘Smashing Pumpkins said no.’ And we were like, ‘Oh, f–k.’ Because we were all in agreement then—the producers, the studio, and I: This is the right song.”

A debate ensued over which song to pick, until The Counting Crows’ lead singer Adam Duritz saw the film and inspiration immediately struck. 

“The music supervisor came in and said, ‘Adam Duritz saw the movie and loved it and he wrote this song and they’re recording it tonight or tomorrow night, but here’s a demo of it.’ And we heard the opening, the piano, and we were like, ‘Oh my god, this is great. We love this,'” Kumble said. “And Neal and I, we went to Adam’s house, or the Crows’ house they were renting at the time…and watched them record ‘Colorblind.’ We put it on the film and it was great.”
