The Song From the It's Kind of a Funny Story Trailer Is by Ida Maria

Music in the Movies: Ida Maria's "Oh My God"

When the trailer for It's Kind of a Funny Story landed, I was taken in by more than just Zach Galifianakis as a mental patient. The song that comes in for the second half of the clip grabbed me: the first lyrics of "find a cure, find a cure . . ." dovetails with the indie comedy's hospital setting. By the time the more impassioned breakdown of the song breaks into "Ohhh my God," we've hit the more impassioned part of the trailer — and I've fallen in love with the track.

The artist is Ida Maria, and the song is called, appropriately, "Oh My God," from the Norwegian rocker's debut album, Fortress Round My Heart. Fun fact: As much as I think the song fits in with It's Kind of a Funny Story, it was also once used in Gossip Girl promos.
