Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney's hotly anticipated new film Anyone But You has arrived in UK cinemas – the latest attempt to revive the faltering big-screen romcom genre that proved so popular in the '90s and '00s.


Of course, any good romcom worth its salt needs a couple of memorable needle drops, and director Will Gluck makes use of tracks from the likes of Troye Sivan, Declan McKenna and Wet Leg throughout the film.

But the most notable song featured in the movie is Natasha Bedingfield's 2004 hit Unwritten, which we discover is Powell's character Ben's 'serenity song' when Sweeney's Bea accidentally overhears him listening to it during an awkward moment on a flight.

The song makes a couple of other appearances during the runtime – including in an infectious credits scene – and Gluck revealed during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter why he decided to opt for it as a centrepiece for the soundtrack.

"There was debate in my head between that song and another song, and the song... had to have baggage, and maybe people don’t like it, but really, people do love it," he explained.

"I just needed to give them permission to love it, which is what I did in another movie [Easy A] with another [Bedingfield] song [Pocketful of Sunshine].

"But when I started playing [Unwritten] and the other song for people, I very quickly realised that everyone knows [Unwritten]. No matter how snarky or how much of a curmudgeon someone might be, you can’t not love that song... So I hope it comes back again, which I’m sure it will after this."
