Elliott Smith - Figure 8


Elliott Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American songwriter and musician. He rose to prominence when his song "Miss Misery", which he wrote for the movie Good Will Hunting, was nominated for an Oscar in the best original song category in 1998.

Figure 8 (2000) is the name of the fifth album recorded by American singer-songwriter Elliott Smith.

The album, released on DreamWorks Records on April 18, 2000, was Smith's second release on a major label. It was recorded at Sunset Sound in New York, Sonora Studios in Los Angeles, Capitol Studios in Hollywood, and Abbey Road Studios in London ("Stupidity Tries", "In the Lost And Found (Honky Bach)" and "Pretty Mary K").

The wall Smith is standing in front of in Autumn DeWilde's photograph on the cover of his Figure 8 album actually exists, and since his death it has become a memorial to him. It is covered with graffiti and written messages containing lyrics and personal messages to Smith. It is located at 4334 W. Sunset Boulevard, which is a store by the name of "Audio-Video Solutions", just south of the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Fountain Avenue.
