What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life? - The Happy Ending

song mentioning the word Smile

Smokey Robinson & The Miracles' "The Tracks of My Tears" used in PLATOON.

Sample lyrics:

So take a good look at my face.

You'll see my SMILE looks out of place.

If you look closely it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears.
