The Playlist Soundtrack Series Revisited: Wes Anderson

The Playlist By The Playlist | The Playlist May 25, 2012 at 2:58PM

In 2006, before I started The Playlist film blog, out of boredom I began what I called the The Playlist Soundtrack Series. A sort of "If I Were _______ (insert filmmaker's name here)" type thing. The concept was naive and simple: choose a handful of music-savvy filmmakers whose work I admired and create imaginary soundtracks for movies they hadn't made, based on their taste and music they might conceivably use one day. It began as nothing more than a fun exercise for me, as I had time on my hands back then.

06 - I Live For You - George Harrison *
07 - Goopy And Bagha's Magic - Satyajit Ray
08 - Love Goes To A Building On Fire - Talking Heads
09 - Got A Feeling - Mamas And The Papas
10 - Mother Whale Eyeless (edit) - Brian Eno
11 - Angelsea - Cat Stevens
12 - Love You Till Tuesday - David Bowie
13 - Chappaqua (excerpt 1) - Ravi Shankar *

22 - Bikram Theme - Satyajit Ray
23 - Snowball - Devo
24 - Let Me Count The Ways - Yoko Ono *
25 - Tonight We Fly - The Divine Comedy

Note: I love the Divine Comedy song, but I always wished this was an instrumental version instead. It sounds like something Mark Mothersbaugh might have written.

Volume Three: The Outtakes

02 - All The Tired Horses - Bob Dylan
03 - Too Much On My Mind - The Kinks
04 - Holiday - Bee Gees

20 - Wishyouawish - The Hollies
21 - Who by Fire - Leonard Cohen
22 - Whippings And Apologies (edit) - Sparks
23 - Mr. Songbird [Stereo Version] - The Kinks

Note: I don't care for this one much insofar as that it was always pretty much an odd and sods collection. I like all the songs individually, but don't really think it makes for much of a coherent mix so if you feel the same, well, that's why.
