Hopefully they continue to collaborate as I think they will be as synonymous as Hitchcock and Bernard Hermann or Steven Spielberg and John Williams (or for that matter George Lucas and John Williams). It's impossible to think of any of those classic films (as well as Wes Anderson's ) without the music accompaniment of their collaborator. This is no more true with Bottle Rocket (the film would be much less without the music and this is admitted by Anderson himself in a small blurb on the insert). As great as the "songs" in Anderson's film are (and scene appropriate at that), I don't purchase his soundtracks for the "songs", I buy them for the Mark Mothersbaugh tracks.
Now about the "songs" on Bottle Rocket. There are only 4 (two by Rene Touzet - the Spanish songs you'll remember from the film), "Zorro Is Back" by Oliver Onions(!) and The Proclaimers "Over and Done With". All four fit with the mood of the film but like all mixed soundtracks (songs mixed in with the score) I wish the songs came last or first so they would not break up the mood of the instrumentals. My favorite of the four is definitely "Zorro Is Back".
One of my few complaints about the disc is that so many of the tracks seem to cut short.Read more ›

"Zorro Is Back"

What is the song playing when when they are robbing his mom's house at the beginning. That song kicks.Published on January 31, 2002 by spencer
The music is not mere soundtrack for the movie. It belies every emotion and tracks every tension that pulsates through this quirky, weird wonderful movie. Read morePublished on July 22, 1999 by Michael Horstman
