The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) w/ Brandice Wilson and Nicole Barlow

Brandice Wilson and Nicole Barlow are back to discuss the 2001 Wes Anderson film, The Royal Tenenbaums, and it’s much celebrated soundtrack. It begins with the Mark Mothersbaugh score, and from there it ranges from Vince Guaraldi’s iconic “Christmas Time Is Here” to Elliott Smith’s Needle in the Hay with a lot of great classic and punk rock in between. We talk about Margot Tenenbaum getting off Greenline bus to Nico’s “These Days”, the use of two Rolling Stones’ tracks (that aren’t on the soundtrack), and the story behind Wes Anderson trying to get the rights to the original version of “Hey Jude”. Nicole also shares a story about she doesn’t connect Bob Dylan’s “Wigwam” with this film but with a bizarre event that all three of us attended.
