This soundtrack, like the one for Rushmore which preceeded it, contains a mixture of classic songs and original instrumental scoring by Mark Mothersbaugh. The songs are mainly from the reflective singer songwriter genre. Nico's haunting rendition of These Days is memorable from its prominent use in one scene. We also have Elliot Smith and Nick Drake performing similarly melancholic tunes. One notable thing about the film was the way it showed the characters actually listening to records, in one instance two tracks from the same Rolling Stones LP, (Sadly not included here). By playing this CD, the listener is given an apt reminder of this wonderfully odd and witty film.
