- Though it contains a token nod to Americana with West Coast saxman Zoot Sims’ “Blinuet,” this collection is driven by Britpop (not the Oasis variety, but the real stuff circa 1960s). Long lost British mod heroes the Creation are an obscure but wonderful choice, their Whoish sound full of youthful abandon. Early Kinks is never a bad thing, and the Davies boys’ “Nothing in This World Can Stop Me Worryin’ ‘Bout That Girl” is a lesser known gem from the band’s golden period. Things turn more introspective with John Lennon’s sentimental “Oh Yoko” and Cat Stevens’ “The Wind,” but the irrepressible Faces’ “Ooh La La” puts things back on a righteously rocking course.
Professional Reviews: Rolling Stone (3/4/99, p.87) – 3 1/2 Stars (out of 5) – “…Like the movie, the soundtrack pays tribute to young love in all its annoying, cloying, earnest and ingratiating qualities. It charms…”
Entertainment Weekly (10/12/01, p.43) – Ranked #84 in EW’s “100 Best Movie Soundtracks”
Entertainment Weekly (3/5/99, p.67) – “Writer-director Wes Anderson is the rare filmmaker who understands how crucial music is for setting a movie’s tone, and RUSHMORE’s wonderfully strange ambiance owes a great deal to this similarly eccentric soundtrack…” – Rating: A-
