Product Description

Amazon.ca

Fashion be damned: Pop culture is just one big Hometown Buffet for writer-director Quentin Tarantino. Nowhere has that sensibility been more apparent than on his hand-picked soundtrack choices, and this oft tongue-in-cheek tale of a female assassin's revenge (his first film in six years) is no exception. With dizzy, almost palpable glee, Tarantino evokes the international hall-of-mirrors influences that energize martial arts films and much of Asian pop culture in general. Thus the hip-hop of Wu Tang's RZA (who, along with composer Charles Bernstein, concocts what passes for the score's traditional cues) somehow finds itself but one ingredient in a heady souffle that includes vintage TV and film cue rarities (Al Hirt's main title from The Green Hornet, Bernard Herrmann's haunting theme from Twisted Nerve, the spaghetti western melodrama of Luis Bacalov's "The Grand Duel," Isaac Hayes in full blaxploitation mode on "Run Fay Run"), Charlie Feathers' vintage rockabilly and a pan-kitsch sensibility that encompasses Zamfir, Nancy Sinatra's angst-in-the-pants take "Bang, Bang" and Santa Esmeralda's disco-era workout of "Please Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood." Tarantino's contemporary Japan-Pop selections are no less giddy, ranging from Meiko Kaji's sultry "Flower of Carnage" to The 5.6.7.8's loopy "Woo Hoo." It's everything we've come to expect from a Tarantino score (including dialog excerpts and a few sound fx stingers), with a madcap trip around the pop music world thrown in for good measure. -- Jerry McCulley

Product Description

The first film in six years from acclaimed writer-director Quentin Tarantino, Kill Bill Vol. 1 is certain to create a stir. As with all of Tarantino's films, music plays a major role. For Kill Bill Vol. 1, a martial arts flick about an assassin who seeks revenge, The RZA from the multiplatinum-selling Wu-Tang Clan takes centerstage, surrounded by the sort of vintage, quirky tracks that made the soundtracks to Tarantino films such as Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown such fan favorites.

Format:Audio CD
Curiously, the liner only has lyrics for "Bang Bang" by Nancy Sinatra and "Flower of Carnage" by Meiko Kaji.
That's really the point, though. Tarantino wrote the film to be a "struck down woman exacts revenge on her would-be assassins". What more do you need? The lyrics to the other songs are really pointless, except for The Rza's Ode to Oren Ishii, but the small background music makes it easy to understand.
There's a little bit of rockabilly that only Elvis people can appreciate: Charlie Feathers' "That Certain Female" and "Woo Hoo" by the 5.6.7.8's just make you want to get up and boogie.
Those of you who noticed the yellow tracksuit should be pleased to know that the Theme Song to "The Green Hornet" is on this CD. Yep, this is all about Lee exacting revenge on Carradine.
Besides the Sinatra and Kaji tracks, the other two that really set things off are The Lonely Shepherd by Zamfir and The Grand Duel by Luis Bacalov. Both feel like they belong in a Sergio Leone film, except they borrow from other styles: The Lonely Shepherd has a Mexican/SW flavor as it builds, and The Grand Duel starts off with an Asian flavor.
The cool thing is you can almost see the carnage, smell the blood and hear the steel slice through flesh when listening to it, especially after watching the trailers.
The number one reason to own this CD: the theatrical trailers. There's the teaser that played before Gangs of New York as well as two full trailers that you can only see on this CD and in theaters. (The Full Trailer at Quicktime is much different than either of these.) The kicker: the "Quentin Tarantino Bootleg" trailer uses similar shots to what one would see in the trailer to Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". It seems like a shot-for-shot remake of that trailer, except they use Kill Bill footage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Missing One Good Song Though March 6 2007
Format:Audio CD
This was an awesome CD. I was happy to see that most of the songs that were in the movie, were on the CD. I was disappointed that one song was not on the CD. I was hoping that song with the Japanese chanting, the song played when Beatrix cut off Sofie's arm and was about to fight with Oren's bodyguards. Does anyone know where I could download that song? Please contact me if you do.

4.0 out of 5 stars as good and unique as the movie July 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
this movie was pure genius, and the same goes for the soundtrack. the songs are weird, which fits. the music will only be good if you have seen the movie though. without seeing the movie first, the music is like a rambling homeless man.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite! June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love this Cd! is my favorite!, it combines since classic music and western to soul, it's fantastic!, i like "Don't let me be misunderstood", "Green Hornet" and "Battle without honor or humanity". I don't care that it hasn't ALL the songs of the movie, but it got the bests. For the person that write in his review that "Seven notes in Black", is not in the CD, better check out the titles behind your disk and you can see that "Seven Notes in Black" is the same song that "Ode to Oren Ishi". Bye bye.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another missing song June 26 2004
By bdlion
Format:Audio CD
There's a song missing from the soundtrack not mentioned by the previous reviewers. It's the song that's whistled by Elle Driver as she enters the hospital to kill the Bride. The song is a piece from Dressed to Kill, the Brian De Palma movie. It was arranged by Bernard Herrman. It would be nice to have this on CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the 2 CDs June 23 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the best of the 2 CDs hands down. This one has the Quincy Jones FX/song that is played everytime the Bride spots her target. It also has the killer techno instrumental played in the first film when the Crazy Eights are walking in slow motion (another CD that has good music like that is Mr.Deviant's "Techno Obsession" which is a mix of power rock and hard dance music with slammin' beats thrown in for good measure to create some killer instrumentals). A few cool tracks from Vol. 1 are for some reason absent here, but other wise is a killer soundtrack.
