"Sure, sure, we all have our favourite bands; I have mine too. But I think on some level, because of my interests, and what I want to do with my life, the "Bottle Rocket" and "Rushmore" soundtracks by Mark Mothersbaugh conjure the warmest feelings and, in turn, have become the most delightful thing I listen to. (It does help I was that I loved "Devo" as a teenager in the eighties - let's face it; the best time to listen to music and grow up). All true andmirers of those films already own these discs, I'm sure, but please know you can find those missing songs!: "Prendeme La Vela" (the beautiful number playing on Inez's radio when Anthony glimpses her for the first time) can be found on "Afro-Peruvian Classics - The Soul of Black Peru". Search for "Seven and Seven Is..." (robbing Anthony's home) and "Alone Again Or" (my personal favourite as Anthony runs to make love to Inez), both by the sixties rock band Love, on Elektra/Rhino's compilation "Love Story". Enjoy my fellow Lawn Wranglers! Enjoy!"

"True, much of the great music from the film is missing from the soundtrack, but the albums that those missing songs come from (The Stones' 2000 Man from Their Statnic Majesty's Request and the two Love songs), are excellent and worth buying in and of themselves. The songs that did end up on the soundtrack are fantastic, especially Over and Done With and Pachango Differente. Mothersbaugh's score is breathtakingly beautiful. It walks hand in hand in perfect harmony with the excellent film, especially Futureman's Theme and Voluntary Hospital Escape (my personal favourites). These songs stand up well on their own, which is more than can be said with most film scores. A little hard to find these days, but a real treasure worth every cent."

"If we had the missing tracks...I'd give mssrs. Wilson & Anderson a five. Easy. The song from the "house robbery," one of the best scenes in the movie, is "Seven and Seven Is" by Arthur Lee & LOVE (from their album "Da Capo"); the Ramones did cover the song on "Acid Eaters," but it's not the version used in BR."
