Wikipedia: Closing Time (Semisonic song)
"Closing Time" is the title of a song by American alternative rock band Semisonic. It was released in March 1998 as the lead single from their album Feeling Strangely Fine. One of the band's most popular songs, it was written by Dan Wilson and produced by Nick Launay. The song was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song in 1999.[3] It reached number-one on the Modern Rock Tracks.

Music video
The music video was directed by Chris Applebaum. It features two continuous shots, running side by side on the screen. One side shows the band playing the song in a rehearsal space. The other side features a woman (played by Denise Franco), who is playing the part of the singer Dan Wilson's girlfriend. As the video progresses, Dan and his girlfriend switch sides of screen, as they attempt to meet up. At the end of the video, they both wind up at the same nightclub. However, they still end up missing each other by mere seconds and never meet up. The "trick" of the video is that each shot was done as one long, continuous shot, with no cuts or editing, and therefore relies on proper timing during the filming to get the two sides of the video lined up properly.

The song was prominently featured in the 2011 film Friends with Benefits where Justin Timberlake's character says the song was by Third Eye Blind.

my movie review: Friends With Benefits
Friends with Benefits is an American romantic comedy film directed by Will Gluck, starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. The film features an ensemble cast which includes Woody Harrelson, Emma Stone and Patricia Clarkson. Filming began on July 13, 2010 in New York City and wrapped in September 2010 in Los Angeles. The film is distributed by Screen Gems and was released in North America on July 22, 2011.

I liked it. It's a formula; it's your standard rom-com, romantic comedy and even before it starts, you know the butler did it. But you watch it anyway. Why? We're all a bunch of romantic saps. We love it when couple meets; couple seems to click; couple falls apart then couple comes back for the fairy tale finale. Heck, it's been done over and over and over again but there we are, feeling that bit of emotion welling up in our eyes as the camera fades to they lived happily ever after.

I like Closing Time. If you're only going to have one hit, that's a nice one to have. And Friends with Benefits was ok. I've certainly seen worse movies.
