Karen O's 'Where the Wild Things Are' soundtrack makes our Must List. What's on yours?

Posted on


where-wild-things-are-soundtrack_lAnticipation for Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are has reached fever pitch (you wouldn’t believe the monster costumes walking around Times Square this morning), so it’s nice to have something — anything — to tide us over while we await the film’s Oct. 16 release. In this case, it’s something pretty cool: the original soundtrack, featuring songs by Karen O (she of popular indie band Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and the Kids. Stream the whole thing at Stereogum and decide for yourself whether you’ll love or hate this movie — the soundtrack is anything but middle-of-the-road.

So what’s on YOUR Must List? List up to three items from current TV/movies/music/books/games/online. And be sure to explain WHY you’ve made your selection, too — we love to hear your thoughts! Don’t forget your e-mail address, in case we decide to use your submission in the magazine. Deadline is Thursday, Oct. 1 at noon ET.
