Your Top 5 Wes Anderson FlicksI was trying to respond to why I like Darjeeling Limited so much and it got me thinking about how one of the things I enjoy most about Wes Anderson is his use of soundtrack to create scenes. The scores are always great, but I think the more song moments/scenes the more I like the movie.
Royal Tenenbaums really destroys the competition with "These Days" (introduced me to Nico), "Police & Thieves", "Me & Julio", "She Smiled Sweetly", "Needle in the Hay", and "Everyone" to name a few. Darjeeling has less "classic" songs overall, but all the Kinks (especially "Strangers") are done so well, and "Play with Fire" is literally fire. Life Aquatic is kind of an asterisk on this cause, while Seu Jorge is phenomenal the Bowie songs play more like score, yet we still get "The Way I Feel Inside" and holy shit "Staralfur."
The others movies have their moments but this is what cements my top 3. What are your favorite Wes Anderson soundtracks?

The Darjeeling Limited w/ Hotel Chevalier prologue - that Peter Sarstedt song is so good + Natalie Portman
The Life Aquatic
Last two are kind of a toss, it's a lower tier after Life Aquatic. Rushmore should probably be in there, it's a better film I guess but Jason Schwartzman kind of annoys me.

Depends on the sandwich, obviously.
