By Kari Howard These songs are a personal soundtrack for this week's wonderful Column Ones, but one below is featured on an actual soundtrack, for the Danny Boyle movie “The Beach.” The band is called Underworld, and Boyle has used them for several of his films, not to mention the completely brilliant soundtrack for the London Olympics he produced last summer. (I can die happy: I've heard the Sex Pistols' “God Save the Queen” at the Olympics.) But Boyle's movies have always had some of the best soundtracks.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Around Clockers' Corner at Santa Anita, they will tell you never to ignore jockey Mike Smith in a big race, no matter the odds. Those who heeded that advice in the $1-million Kentucky Oaks for 3-year-old females were happy Friday. Smith, riding 38-1 shot Princess Of Sylmar, dawdled near the rear of the field most of the race and then found a hole on the homestretch and guided the filly past all the bigger-name horses to victory. The Princess paid $79.60, $29.40 and $14. Smith's horse paid $727 for a $2 exacta, $3,470.80 for a $2 trifecta, and $12,445 for a $2 superfecta.

NEW YORK - Rough night for USC quarterbacks. Matt Barkley went undrafted through the second and third rounds of the NFL draft on Friday, and fellow former Trojans quarterback Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets moved closer to the door. The Jets picked West Virginia's Geno Smith in the second round, adding a sixth quarterback to their roster and sending another none-too-subtle message to Sanchez that he's not their future. Projected by some people as a first-rounder, Barkley tumbled through the first three rounds.

J.R. Smith of the New York Knicks will be honored as the NBA's sixth man of the year instead of the Clippers' Jamal Crawford, according to a number of reports citing league sources. Early in the season, it was apparent that the Clippers' high-scoring acquisition was the front-runner for the award as he helped the team vault to the top of the NBA standings and eventually finish with a 56-26 record and their first Pacific Division title. Crawford, a 13-year veteran known for his variety of crossover moves and instant offense, finished the regular season averaging 16.5 points, 2.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 29 minutes a game.

Jaden Smith thinks that "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Kylie Jenner is "pretty awesome. " Well, what else would a 14-year-old boy think? Wait. Don't answer that. The son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and the daughter of Kardashian momager Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner have been linked since early last month. They were spotted having lunch at Café Nero in London and having a chaperoned sushi dinner at Nobu with Big Will. Both incidents were documented by papz and have led to dating rumors.
