Page did the movie score (four or five instrumentals) for Only In America (which opened in Austin 7/25/97), working with bass player Andy Cotton and sax player Dave Grippo (who also played congas). The producer described it as "an independent feature film made in Texas. It's satire targeting the war on drugs, a sensationalist media, televangelists, and the information age." The theme song, to which the opening and closing credits are set, evolved into "Cars Trucks Buses", which appeared on Billy Breathes. Blake Shepard said, "Bits and peices of the song are strewn throughout Just Say No to Satan, the film's movie-within-a-movie-within-a-movie-within-a-movie (yes, the whole thing is a meta-meta-meta-movie!)." Hal Waterman , who added "There was [another instrumental] that kept reoccuring (sp) during 'tragic' moments in the film. It sounded like something similar to the music played at the end of The Wall when the kids were searching through the rubble. There were no titles listed for any of these songs in the credits." Blake "found the most memorable one to be the piano piece that accompanied the lead actress's visit to a 'Forbidden Books' store. There, she discovers a wealth of information on hemp, the environment and cover-ups, while Page's song eerily evokes her feelings of discovery, fascination, creeping paranoia and thrilling defiance." There are currently no plans to release a soundtrack, but the film may come out on video. .. During the House of Blues Radio Hour in August of 1998, Page McConnell had a public service announcement, speaking on the dangers of unprotected sex, with "Free" playing in the background.
