A Wes Anderson Tribute Album Made for Ultimate Fan-Boys

As a real-life member of the Zissou Society, and the proprietor of an arm brandishing a Zissou face tattoo, I am going next-level bonkers over American Laundromat Records' forthcoming Wes Anderson tribute album, I Saved Latin!. The collection pays homage to the truly exceptional soundtracks featured on seven of the director's films. It's unclear why Moonrise Kingdom was left off the list, as a Telekinesis cover of Hank Williams' "Ramblin' Man" coulda' done the body good, however, I'm still stoked for this massive pack of classic covers.

The tracklist is obviously very Rushmore and Tenenbaums heavy, and could also use a bit more Zissou action, but now I'm just getting picky. Even with my few gripes, I'll still be nabbing this next spring even if it's just to add to my patch and t-shirt memorabilia collection. But just in case the dudes at American Laundromat are reading, here are a few missing tracks they missed.
