Slept On: The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions

Ever wondered how David Bowie songs would sound in Portuguese? Well, Wes Anderson did when he commissioned Seu Jorge to provide the soundtrack for his epic movie "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou," and it turned out fantastic. Bowie songs are paired down to a lonely acoustic guitar and Jorge's raspy voice, that will whisk you away to a place surrounded with sand and water with every listen. Enjoy!

Standout Track: All of them.


  1. sounds cool... will check it out!

  2. I actually have Rebel Rebel and Life on Mars from the studio sessions album via iTunes. They're beautiful. Just a caveat: these are studio sessions, not the performances from the film, some of which can be found on the soundtrack.
