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."
