Wes Anderson originally conceived this soundtrack as being made up entirely of songs by the Kinks. But with due respect, it wouldn't be nearly as good if it was. Alongside that band's delicious "Nothin' in the World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl" is the Creation’s lesser-known British-invasion nugget "Making Time," along with moody jazz (Zoot Sims' "Blinuet"), high-fructose period pop (Cat Stevens' "Here Comes My Baby") and some of Mark Mothersbaugh's tastiest post-Devo instrumentals.
