The Royal Tenenbaums Soundtrack

I know I should have resurrected this freaking feature a long, long time ago… But you know what? I am doing it now so…There ya go.

Why I have not done this film a long time ago is a crime! Lock me up! The first time I saw The Royal Tenenbaums I really wasn’t sure how I felt about it and I hear I am not alone on this, which is comforting. Of course then I saw it a few more times and fell in love. I fell in love with this cooky family that loves one another but doesn’t know how to accept the traits that make who they are. I love this movie from beginning to end and the music… Well… It is a Wes Anderson film so the music fits perfectly with the theme and mood of the movie of course.

It was not easy to select a favorite tune either… With music from Nick Drake, The Ramones and Elliott Smith, it was not an easy feat by any means. But in the end I went with the one and only John Lennon. Pitter patter goes my heart.

    I still haven’t seen this one. I did watch a couple of Wes Anderson films — Bottle Rocket I really liked. Then there was the one with three brothers on a train…Really have to make more time for movies. Lord knows there’s nothing on TV.

    Yeah, The Darjeeling Limited was an awesome movie as well.I really do not think he could do any wrong. Any of his films I could highly recommend. :-)

    I remember the movie, but dont remember the soundtrack. Weird. I went to look up the songs and I was shocked to see two of my most favorite Nico tracks ever: These Days and The Fairest of the Seasons. LOVE those songs!
    Im gonna check the rest out asap.
