Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Rushmore soundtrack manages to pleasantly skirt the line between sentiment and sentimentality with a nuanced, eminently listenable combo of score and song. The songs mostly blend raw, adolescent urges and insecurity with an awkward grace. Though composed primarily of popular music from the 1960s, none of the selections is a hit of the expected Big Chill variety. In fact, compiler Randall Poster proves himself a '60s pop connoisseur, including little-known gems such as Cat Stevens's buoyant, hummable "Here Comes My Baby" (covered by Yo La Tengo on Fakebook) and the Who 's revved-up, intentionally silly proto-opera "A Quick One While He's Away." The bossa nova folk-pop of Unit 4+2's "Concrete & Clay" is lovingly contrasted by the Creation's blistering, feedback-enhanced hit-that-never-was "Making Time." Devo founder Mark Mothersbaugh's incidental music is nothing short of delightful, but the Rugrats composer clearly comes by whimsy easily. The intriguing thing about Mothersbaugh's score--seven snippets from which are sprinkled throughout the disc--is that it complements the archival tunes while combining Beethoven-lite flourishes and jazzy instrumentation with percolating mod keyboards. Like the film itself, this soundtrack is an inspired, left-field effort, and it's difficult to plot out its many charms. --Mike McGonigal

Review

For anyone who left the theater singing along to the Faces' "Ooh La La," it's an essential soundtrack. -- Entertainment Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars lets go for a picnic... July 8 2004
By anna
Format:Audio CD
this cd is an amazingly sincere combination of tunes that stay true to the film and this incredible arrangement that makes anyone who listens to it trip in the very best sense of the word. it makes me happy. so even if you didnt see the movie... grab this... the way it makes you feel is worth it. but watch the movie as well. you'll like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best soundtrack ever, man! June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
As far as I am concerned, this is the best soundtrack ever recorded! I am usually not too big a fan of music from the 70's (since I was born in the late 80's) , but this soundtrack is a masterpiece. If you are having a bad day, listen to this soundtrack. It doesnt have a boring or non-upbeat song on it, and will cure what ails you. If it is not obvious about what you should do so far, take some advice from N Sync (or whatever Boy Band this quote is from) , and Buy, Buy, Buy!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A mix that recalls a feeling Oct. 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
This soundtrack brings a happy mood whenever I hear it. All the tracks are good, even Mark Mothersbaugh's instrumentals. I don't recall where they placed in the movie, so it doesn't bring back scenes of the movie like some sountracks do. Some of my favorite tracks are: rue st. vincent, concrete & clay, and a quick one while he's away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mothersbaugh at his best Aug. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Mark Mothersbaugh's music couln't fit better into this classic movie. His music is greatly responsible for making Rushmore such a fantastic film. Classic songs, such as Concrete and Clay, The Summer Song, and Oh Yoko make this c.d. alone worth purchasing. It is a rarity to have a soundtrack as good as it's movie, but Mothersbaugh and other great artists really pull it off.

Format:Audio CD
If this soundtrack has Here Comes My Baby, The Wind, And Oh! Yoko this has to be one of the best soundtracks made.
