I caught wind of a new Wes Anderson film on the horizon called "The Darjeeling Limited," set to come out in 2008. The story follows three brothers represented by Jason Schwartzman (YESSS!), Adrien Brody (YESSSSS!), and the ever-present Owen Wilson (FUCK YESS!!), who go on a trip to India after their father dies. I know nothing about the actual plot, but I've always fantasised about being able to compile a soundtrack for W.A. himself, and after much thought, this would be it. Enjoy, W.A. fans and haters alike.

Track 3 from Street Hassle
Length: 00:10:54
Year: 1978
Track Description:
This is a bit of a cheat because Noah Baumbach, who is a mate of W.Anderson, used it in “The Squid and the Whale,” but this song is just too fucking gorgeous to not be awarded a second go. The tight chords of the double-stop strings paired beneath the drunken sounding sha-la-la’s of Lou Reed would make a great intro credits/curtain opener. Maybe a nice, round, white sans-serif font. Mmmm, I love good typography+good music.

Track 1 from Save the Last Dance for Me
Length: 00:02:29
Year: 1962
Track Description:
There is nothing like a sweet, bouncy doowop song to capture the irony and bittersweet sadness of a funeral/death scene. When I hear this, I think it would be an appropriate backdrop for the hushed dialogue at a reception after a funeral. The lyrics are also very “last-wordsy,” and sort of haunting – the way any death affects you.

Track 12 from Greatest Hits
Length: 00:02:58
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Enter W.A.’s infamous character tableaux. This is probably where we see the late father’s unique accomplishments showcased in some over-done detail-saturated rush frame. Juxtaposing his life next to his sons, we accrue a certain distaste and pity for the middle-aged characters who have yet to do anything remotely noteworthy, and if they have, their glories are way-the-fuck behind them. Also, we can assume another character (i.e. eccentric family friend) will be introduced to accompany the brothers on their trip.

Track 2 from When I Was Born for the 7th Time
Length: 00:05:17
Year: 1997
Track Description:
Asha Bhonsle was an iconic and very old school Bollywood playback-singer/actress who is glorified in this great song. She is probably as notable in India as any of our humongous pop sensations here in the states, but to a foreigner, would remain a complete stranger. This is an example of how foreigners go to other countries without really giving a damn about the culture/history/anything.

Track 0 from Masculin, Féminin Soundtrack
Length: 00:01:45
Year: 0000
Track Description:
You’ve lied to me too much. This is a huge sweeping bow that Anderson usually gives to the nouvelle vague movement that happened in 60s France. Tu M’asTrop Menti was a song that debuted in Jean-Luc Godard’s film "Masculin, féminin", when the era of coca-cola and Marxism was in full motion. It is also my little hushed political message in the corruption of coca-cola’s operations in India, and the subsequent water pollution (amongst other problems) it has created there. Another example of foreigner-ignorance.

Track 9 from The Life Pursuit
Length: 00:03:08
Year: 2006
Track Description:
Everyone falls in love on holiday. In this case, it will probably be with a smoky-voiced, bovine-eyed bird with a dodgy past and serious emotional issues. Still, there will be infatuation and romance. Is there any other way? I also love the way they say “funny little frog in my thro-ehht.”

Length: 00:03:40
Year: 1995
Track Description:
Let me just say that if Wes Anderson were ever to put this song in any of his films I would drop dead with happiness on the very spot. It is genius, both musically and lyrically, and Jeff Mangum’s unpredictable warbling over cheap, crazy, crashing cymbals makes for a great running scene! And we all know how W.A. loves running. Especially when it’s more than a few characters. Sometimes for no reason. At all.

Length: 00:01:58
Year: 0000
Track Description:
Ahhh, the sensual and trademark Pixies craft in this song. You listen to it, and know that something is definitely on the rocks. It is about a man who goes travelling, and upon being there for some time, realises he has left something behind and/or forgotten what was truly essential to him. “I soon forgot myself and I forgot about the brake/I forgot about all laws and I forgot about the rain.” Enter Andersonesque montage.

Length: 00:02:58
Year: 0000
Track Description:
In every W.A. film, there is always some forgotten 60s song that we hear and all remember like a swift punch to the face. It is perfect in every way, beautiful beyond comprehension, and tear-inducing. There should be some kind of breakup here, or another death. And of course, a speed-up
to slow-down stop motion shot.

Track 8 from Nouvelle Vague
Length: 00:03:32
Year: 2004
Track Description:
The BEST cover I have ever heard in my life. Known for his inclusion of British Invasion references, this would be a perfect addition to any W.A. soundtrack. The song itself was originally performed by XTC, referencing a parental view of an endearing son. It is simply about wanting the best for your child – for them to be happy and well-off no matter what. Here is the denoument of the story, the characters’ acknowledgements that they love each other and their father.
