Monday’s Music 06. [Wes Anderson Edition]

July 7, 2014

Happy Monday (and Happy July!) This week’s Monday’s Music is dedicated to my FAVORITE screenwriter and director: Wes Anderson. Each of the nine songs listed will come from one of Wes Anderson’s eight full length feature films (which means Anderson’s short films Hotel Chevalier, Castello Cavalcanti, Prada: Candy and Cousin Ben Troop Screening with Jason Schwartzman will not be included. Nor will The Squid and the Whale which Anderson produced.) Since I’ve already used Nico’s These Days (who could forget that iconic Royal Tenenbaums scene) in Monday’s Music 01, it will unfortunately not be making an appearance on this list.
Wes Anderson Music,
Strangers – The Kinks, The Darjeeling Limited // 2000 Man – The Rolling Stone, Bottle Rocket // Heroes and Villains – The Beach Boys, Fantastic Mr. Fox // Here Comes My Baby – Cat Stevens, Rushmore // Traditional Arrangement: Moonshine – Alexandre Desplat, The Grand Budapest Hotel // Hey Jude – The Beatles, The Royal Tenenbaums // Gut Feeling – DEVO, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou // Le Temps De L’amour – Françoise Hardy, Moonrise Kingdom // Fly – Nick Drake, The Royal Tenenbaums

If you follow me on Twitter, you might recall a certain tweet that said “My day has officially been MADE! All thanks to a small parcel that arrived from the UK this afternoon.”  Well, I’m THRILLED to announce that *Drum Rolls Please* THIS phone case WAS that parcel! As a self-proclaimed Wes Anderson junkie, there’s nothing better than receiving a Wes Anderson themed item. This adorable (seriously, I’m obsessed with it) phone case was sent to me by Mr. Nutcase, a UK based company that specializes in personalized mobile phone and tablet cases.
