"Listening to music was a huge aspect of the research for me," says Cody Horn about her preparation for Flipped.
In order to get into the role Lynetta Loski, Cody turned to trusty old iTunes for some inspiration. She goes on, "iTunes has this great function where you can download the charts from certain years. I downloaded them from 1959-1962. At 17, music is everything. It's all still on my iPod too. Whenever it comes on, it's lovely. I felt like my mom listening to this music [Laughs]."
The music definitely serves a major role in Flipped's impact, and Cody's certainly a big part of the film's poignancy. However, music's also a big part of her life. Cody plays keyboards in the New York based band Joy State, cranking out melodic psychedelica like no one else out there.
But will they cover "The Lion Sleeps Tonight?"
"That song came out in 1961 or 1962. That was a huge shocker to me because I associate it with Lion King," she laughs. "I used to paint and listen to that song on the weekends; it was great."
Cody Horn sat down with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino for an exclusive interview about Flipped, what's currently on her playlist and rocking with Joy State. Check out Cody's playlist below.
