In the spring ofwhile Pulp Fiction fever was still around, a friend told me, "the coolest thing about being Quentin Tarantino is that he gets to make everyone else listen to his personal music collection. Sure Dogs came out inbut was when everyone started listening to it. To Tarantino, the pop tunes are the actual score of to his film: half-remembered hits from the 60's and 70's, quirky B-sides and forgotten film scores mixed in with cool monologues from the films.
The albums were like an indelible mix tape, and every soundtrack under the sun was soon imitating its style, whether Tarantino was in the movie or not DesperadoBoogie NightsFrom Dusk Till DawnMagnoliaOut of Sight]Ocean's 11Clerks. The fun of the album is that he simply does what he always Woo Hoo - Various - Kill Bill Vol.
1 - Original Soundtrack , which is to compile quirky music which he thinks is "cool. Additionally, a majority of the songs are more instrumental in natural.
The music is an even more eclectic mix where you have no idea what genre the next song is. Listening to this CD before watching the movie, I was wondering how on earth is this going to fit together? Having seen the movie, it is a rock-n-roll spaghetti western. Like what a Sergio Leone movie would be if he had a great music collection. The album starts with the surprisingly somber Nancy Sinatra song "Bang Bang," "My Baby Shot Me Down"which becomes the Bride's Uma Thurman theme underscoring her inner sorrow and giving the movie a serious undertone that previous Tarantino films have not had.
There is an emphasis on Japanese music, understandable as a good portion of the film takes place in that country. Meiko Kaji's "Flower's of Change" is a 60's Nippon style ballad. A Japanese Bs, the retro band 5. Only one their songs "Woo-Hoo" appears on the album and it will drill a permanent place in your brain. The RZA score blend in quite well as they are a hodge-podge of hip-hop styles mixed with old kung fu stings. The most unique aspect about this album is how much score has been pulled from other films.
Music from Ironside is used as the Bride's revenge motif, which flares up with a red-tinged flashback whenever she's in the company of her next target.
This makes me want to track the original soundtrack down. Damn you, Tarantino!!!! As a nice bonus, included on the disk are three QuickTime trailers: The theatrical trailer and then two additional trailers Tarantino personally had assembled. The two additional trailers are in the 70's Grind-house spirit of the film. Both of them are far cheesier and far better than any of the other theatrical trailers released. I would give this soundtrack a higher rating if they had only done one thing: rearrange the order of the music.
From Track 18 on, the album has a series of Kung Fu effects sound cues. They are all cute and endearing in a kitschy way, but played all in a row dilute their effectiveness. My suggestion is that they should have arranged these cues throughout the album as filler between songs and ended the album on the Gabrielle - The Boys - Boys Only note "You're My Wicked Life".
Good thing CD players have that "random" button. To no one's shock, the album feels incomplete as the rest of the Bill Killing will occur next year.
