Exploring Songza: Four Offbeat Playlists From the Curated Music Service

Categories: Digitalia

Songs from Wes Anderson Films
Built by an obvious Anderson devotee, the playlist includes tracks from Anderson's first six films. Compiled not only from soundtrack lists, but also songs simply appearing in the films, the list gleefully weaves a tapestry thankfully far more diverse than Anderson's self-indulgent WASP fairy tales.

From orchestral arrangements to Spanish folk tunes and on to The Rolling Stones, the list bounces here to there fairly effortlessly. For as off-kilter and wide-ranging as it is, this is one of the most cohesive playlists on Songza. To Anderson's credit, many of the songs on the list conjure at once the scene they appear in, a tribute to the directors talent at picking music to accompany his films.

Standout Tracks

  • Nico, "The Fairest of the Seasons"
  • Hank Williams, "Long Gone Lonesome Blues"
  • The Stooges, "Search and Destroy"
