The Sandpipers “Beyond the Valley of the Dolls”
composed by Stu Phillips - Bob Stone
from Various – Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls - Original Soundtrack Album MP3 Comp (20th Century Fox Records 2005) —"Freak Power Ticket" Show Promo w/ The Sandpipers' "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" + John LaZar as Z-Man Barzell in Roger Ebert + Russ Meyers' movie of the same name.
MIT Concert Choir (Cutter) “Cantata 140. 1. Chorus”
from Bach and Schubert MP3 Other (CC License 2005) —Excerpt. Music bed for intro to my 2nd of a 2-part interview with WES ANDERSON COLLECTION author Matt Zoller Seitz + RogerEbert.com. This Bach cantata was adapted by Mark Mothersbaugh as the "Loquasto International Film Festival" in THE LIFE AQUATIC.
Iggy & The Stooges “Search And Destroy”
from Raw Power MP3 Album (Columbia/Legacy 1973) —This song is memorably featured in THE LIFE AQUATIC. I played the Iggy remastered version, in part as a tribute to Stooges drummer Scott Asheton, who died this past weekend. Music bed for voiceover commentary/recap.
Curro “Here's To You”
from Silba a Ennio Morricone MP3 Album (DiscMedi S.A. 2007) —This song is also in THE LIFE AQUATIC, played during the Ned/Kingsley funeral scene. That Ennio Morricone/Joan Baez hit was originally featured in the Italian docudrama SACCO E VANZETTI. I love the trademark Morricone whistling! RIP Scott Asheton!
Seu Jorge “Team Zissou”
composed by Seu Jorge
from The Life Aquatic - Studio Sessions featuring Seu Jorge MP3 Album (Hollywood 2005) —The LIFE AQUATIC SESSIONS features Seu Jorge's entire slate of Bowie adaptations, recorded for the Wes Anderson film. This sole original, tongue-in-cheek song is about the movie's documentary-filmmaking/seafaring collective.
Leonard Bernstein “The Young Person's Guide To The Orchestra, Op. 34: Themes A-F”
from Moonrise Kingdom (Original Soundtrack) MP3 Comp (ABKCO Music & Records, Inc. 2012) —A terrific classical track that seems wholly appropriate for a deceptively simple juvenile love story from the great Wes Anderson.
