Back to 21 Favorite Movie Music Cues
'The Royal Tenenbaums' (2001)
Song: "Everyday" by Van Morrison
Why We Love It: Like Scorsese, Tarantino and Crowe, Wes Anderson is a maestro when it comes to using pop music in movies. From 'Bottle Rocket' to 'Rushmore' and all the way through 'The Life Aquatic,' 'The Darjeeling Limited' and 'Fantastic Mr. Fox,' Anderson always finds somewhat forgotten hipster gems than wind up getting continuous play in your iTunes. (Just me?) Consider this inclusion of Van Morrison's "Everyday" -- used to its melancholy best a the end of the wonderful 'Royal Tenenbaums' -- as a lifetime achievement award for Mr. Anderson.
