About The Music
The songs featured in "Rushmore"
come from the British Invasion of the '6Os. Music supervisor Randy
Poster explains, "Wes starred talking with me about the music
for the movie a couple of years before we started shooting."
Anderson says, "We used the British Invasion music because
it gets at the other side of Max. He presents himself as being
very sophisticated, and he wears a blazer and a tie; but, really,
he's a teenager, and he's kind of going crazy.
Anderson choreographed the filming of some of the scenes to the
music which he had already selected -before filming began. In
working with songs from this era, Poster expressed how Anderson
was "trying to harken back to a music that expresses an emerging
post-adolescent energy and vigor." Poster adds, "Something
I related to in the script corresponds with the England of the
'Angry Young Man' period. In a sense there is a certain stylistic
parallel that we're illuminating, though clearly the times and
realities are very different. But I think the emotional charge
of some of these songs really adhere to the film and will reverberate
with the audience in terms of the energy and emotional content.
I think Wes has a singular and refreshing view of the things.
And I think that the music will help stamp his identity on the
brow of filmgoers throughout the world."
