It's interesting how context can change everything. I have the soundtrack for Rushmore. Rushmore is an odd little comedy about a guy that tries very hard to fit in and in his own way succeeds, despite himself.
Anyway, the soundtrack is really great. The funny thing is that what makes it great is its association with the movie. I probably would never have bought any music by the artists included on the soundtrack, but I really enjoy this music in this compilation and mainly because it reminds me of various scenes from the movie.
