Penny & The Quarters are a "lost" soul band which came to prominence in 2010 after an unreleased demo of their song "You And Me" was used in the film Blue Valentine.

Presumably teenagers at the time, Penny & The Quarters were invited to audition by Harmonic Sounds Studio in Columbus, Ohio, recording three demo songs in all. The group consisted of Jay Robinson, the lead male vocalist and songwriter, and a female lead with three or four male backup singers and an accompanying guitarist.

---------- Update ----------
Actually, Price asked Jay Robinson to give them his recently written song "You And Me". It is now known that the members have been identified as Nannie "Penny" Sharpe (at age 62, working in Postal Service and singing in her Church) and her brothers Preston, Johnny and Donald Coulter.

---------- ----------

The songs were recorded some time between 1970 and 1975 at either Harmonic Sounds Studio or at the home of studio co-owner Clem Price in Columbus. Relegated to storage, the songs were discovered after Price's death in 2006 when a collection of tapes and acetate records was purchased at his estate sale. They were subsequently given to an archival record company, The Numero Group, after a Columbus, Ohio musicologist came into possession of the recordings.

One of the songs they recorded, "You And Me" was released by Numero Group and was later heard by actor Ryan Gosling, who recommended it to the director Derek Cianfrance as the song meant to bring the two lead characters together in Blue Valentine.

Numero Group announced in 2011 that they were actively seeking members of Penny & The Quarters or their surviving relatives in order to share the growing record royalties from "You And Me". Ken Shipley of Numero Group told reporters, "we have played this recording to over 100 movers and shakers from the time and no one has a clue."

Lyrics

You and me,
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me. (Hey, hey, hey)
You and me, (My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me.

If the stars don't shine, if the moon won't rise, if I never see the setting sun again,
You won't hear me cry, this I testify; please believe me, boy, you know I wouldn't lie.
As long as there is

You and me, (Ohhh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me. (Hey, hey, hey)
You and me, (My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me.

If you love a soul more than fame and gold, and that soul feels the same about you,
It's a natural fact, there's no turning back, and here's some advice to you:
You've got to say it's,

You and me, (Ohhh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me. (Hey, hey, hey)
You and me, (My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me.

When love is real, you don't have to show it.
When it is true, then everyone will know.
'Cause there'll be no one but

You and me, (Youuuuuuu)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me. (Hey, hey, hey)
You and me, (Ohhh, oh, oh, oh, oh)
You and me,
Nobody baby but you and me.

Do do do dooo do, woo woo
Do do do dooo do, woo woo
Do do do dooo do, woo woo
Do do do dooo do, woo woo

You and me baby
