Predict the soundtrack to the next Wes Anderson movie

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed
It's "A Life Aquatic," starring Bill Murray as a marine biologist. But that's not really important, is it?

My guesses:
Something by Os Mutantes, who seem like the perfect Wes Anderson band - "O Religio" maybe?
The Monkees - "Dolphin Song," though that may be a bit overliteral.

Fill out the rest of the soundtrack.

"Take a Giant Step" by Taj Mahal.

Nemo (JND), Thursday, 19 February 2004 21:53 (sixteen years ago) link

12-14 somewhat obscure folk/pop/rock songs from 1965 to 1975

Kingfish Beatbox (Kingfish), Thursday, 19 February 2004 21:56 (sixteen years ago) link

Some song featuring "underwater" style vocals that were so in vogue in the late '60s.

Doobie Keebler (Charles McCain), Thursday, 19 February 2004 21:58 (sixteen years ago) link

Yoko will be the new Nico. There will be two Yoko songs, but I cannot predict which ones.

lots of kanye

Margo Guruyan - Goodbye July
Dylan - Sign On the Window
The Zombies - This Will Be Our Year

All original Mark Mothersbaugh tunes, played on a toy piano.

Salmon Pink (Salmon Pink), Thursday, 19 February 2004 22:03 (sixteen years ago) link

one of the upcoming 'hey ya'-soundalike singles, possibly the one by kanye

$$, Thursday, 19 February 2004 22:03 (sixteen years ago) link

Shit, I forgot the Mothersbaugh score. I thought about that when I was walking around my neighborhood and I came up with this thread, but it got lost in the jumble of my brain.

NA (Nick A.), Thursday, 19 February 2004 22:04 (sixteen years ago) link

Bill Murray is actually just doing a voice. Wes Anderson is directing the next Rugrats sequel.

Salmon Pink (Salmon Pink), Thursday, 19 February 2004 22:05 (sixteen years ago) link

Flub flub flub flub I'm underwater.

Ween - Golden Eel

Being a dolphin (Atila the Honeybun), Thursday, 19 February 2004 22:23 (sixteen years ago) link

12-14 somewhat obscure folk/pop/rock songs from 1965 to 1975

This thread is over. (As is my patience with Anderson.)

Hmm... it looks kind of bad to me.

just like Tenenbaums then....

jed_ (jed), Friday, 20 August 2004 00:11 (fifteen years ago) link

No, NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL.

I don't know - maybe it's just the trailer but it looks like it's trying to be a broad comedy that falls flat on its face. I think the Bill Murray backlash is finally going to get off the ground.

Alba (Alba), Friday, 20 August 2004 00:15 (fifteen years ago) link

You people and your backlashes!!!!

peepee (peepee), Friday, 20 August 2004 01:08 (fifteen years ago) link

ooh that doesn't look to good. with bill murray fresh of off LiT i think people are either sick of him or expectations are too high, the end result still being disappointment. and wes looks like he might be oding on the whole cutesy-eccentric vibe.

to veer this back to music, that's 'queen bitch' by bowie BTW

I was looking through my mom's records this weekend when I was visiting and was shocked and apalled at the number of Jone Baez records she owns. Totally shocked.

Ian John50n (orion), Tuesday, 30 November 2004 17:33 (fifteen years ago) link

actually i've been listening to really really early baez (from '60-ish) and it's it's pretty good pre-dylan new-weird-earnest-troubadour stuff.

folksingers 'round harvard square ('59) and joan baez ('60).

stockholm cindy (Jody Beth Rosen), Tuesday, 30 November 2004 17:40 (fifteen years ago) link

the acts in the film kick off w/ seu jorge covering bowie songs. search and destroy is the background to the best bill murray scene in cinema history.

The Ping Island music is awesome. It sounds like Battles with an electronic beat.

Hurting (Hurting), Sunday, 26 December 2004 17:50 (fifteen years ago) link

I swear he used a Neu! track at one point in this movie, but I didn't see them listed in the credits.

And good job to whoever compiled the CD on not including Sigur Ros, not that "Starlafur" (sp) is a bad song, but it totally wouldn't fit on that soundtrack.

billstevejim, Sunday, 26 December 2004 17:58 (fifteen years ago) link

There was one song I remember hearing in an underwater scene that doesn't seem to be on the soundtrack. Maybe that was it.

Hurting (Hurting), Sunday, 26 December 2004 18:15 (fifteen years ago) link

I think he also left out the famous classical guitar concierto that's excerpted -- Villa Lobos, I think.

i liked the nyer profile from a couple of months back, when he seemed bugged that slumdog millionaire had been successful, and that it was someone else's indian movie, rather than his indian movie, that was a success.

tbf his indian movie was better

is this on the internets?

also, i agree that darjeeling ltd >>> slumdog

i just posted a wes anderson poll to ILE but it's disappeared. wtf.

by another name (amateurist), Sunday, 4 April 2010 23:14 (ten years ago) link

also, i agree that darjeeling ltd >>> slumdog

have never seen slumdog, but the point was that w.a. seemingly saw all 'indian movies' as interchangeable, and that the public's hunger for exotica should have been met by his rather than another; their individual merits didn't seem to be a consideration.

if that's true it's embarrassing. are you sure he wasn't being tongue-in-cheek, like haha my indian movie didn't do as well as this other indian movie.

to be fair both films seem equally, if differently, exoticizing. if anything darjeeling ltd was less offensive than slumdog.

love that they meet at le select, which is classic retro-literary-tourist territory. wanderson shd make a film actually set in the first half of the 20th century imo.

I've been picturing 'The Great Wide Yonder' as Anderson's first cel-animated feature, done by the crew that did 'L'Illusioniste'/'Triplets of Bellville,' or that did 'The Red Turtle,' or that did 'I Lost My Body,' taking inspiration from 'Fantastic Planet'... Now I actually want this to happen...

Damn, I forgot he already used powerman on darjeeling limited. Would have made a great fit on a race scene.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 22 May 2020 14:06 (two months ago) link

Oh well Can and Monkees are good candidates for a wes anderson directed race.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 22 May 2020 14:07 (two months ago) link

There’s probably some very apt Italian songs that could fit but I’m just waking up and I can’t think of any atm.
