From Magnolia Soundtrack and 43 other releases

Save Me is a song by written and performed by Aimee Mann for use in the film Magnolia. It appears on the Magnolia soundtrack which was released December 7, 1999. Also, it was released as a bonus track on the Japanese release of Bachelor No.2 or the last remains of the Dodo, and it was included in the tracklist of the European release of the same album, which was released May 2, 2000.

In 1999 “Save Me” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song which it lost to You’ll Be In My Heart from the Disney movie Tarzan. By way of introduction to a live performance, Mann has referred to this song as “the song that lost an Oscar to Phil Collins and his cartoon monkey love song.”

It is one of her most popular and best-known recordings, and has become a fan favorite.

The music video, shot shortly after the filming of Magnolia, was directed by the film’s director, Paul Thomas Anderson, and uses many of the film’s actors including Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Tom Cruise. The video inserts Mann into various scenes from the film as she performs the song.
