Well out of:

Pulp Fiction
Natural Born Killers
Reservoir Dogs
True Romance
Four Rooms
Jackie Brown
Desperado
From Duck Till Dawn

I would have to say either:
Misirlou from Pulp Fiction
OR
Leonard Coen's Waiting For The Miracle from Natural Born Killers

I dont really consider NBK a QT film. But True Romance I do.


I really like "I Gotcha" by Joe Tex from Res Dogs

or

"Bullwinkle Pt 2" by The Centurians from Pulp Fiction. Its perfect for the scene when Vincent Vegas shooting up. I love the use of the surf rock instrumentals in the film as well.

"Out of Limits" by the Marketts in Pulp Fiction in the scene where Butch and his chickadee are driving off on the stolen chopper....in an average movie, some song like "Born to be Wild" would play because that would be considered a song for that story ending of driving off on a motorcycle....but Tarantino uses an "eerie" song like "Out of Limits" making it seem like he's saying, "Butch here is a badass" Then we suddenly go to the title card...and the song fades out perfectly....the rest of the song not heard in the film is great, but he cut if off  in the right place.....Great Song.

Hell Yeah!!!!
Out Of Limits by The Marketts is excellent. I wish it was on the soundtrack. The beginning is the fucking best. Very Cool song and it should of been on for longer in the movie.

Give some of these a try:

"Radar Love" by Golden Earring
"Pusherman" by Curtis Mayfield
"Love is the Drug" by Roxy Music
"Baby please dont go" by Them
Honorable mention
"Apache" by The Incredible Bongo Band (Always thought this tune belongs in a QT picture)

I'd have to say "Dark Night" by the Blasters

Probably because my cousin John is the bass player in the band.  Cool fuckin' guy--cool fuckin' band.

QT always create memorable intro both in regard of music and images; I suggest Little Green Bag becuse really define Reservoir Dogs, for me it's really the perfect "cool" scene...
also great is "101 Streeth" with Pam Grier Running trough the airport...
For PF I Like  best Travolta and Thurman dancing on "Never Can Tell"

Did you know that Misirlou is a remake of a very old Greek ;D song? Well it is. And the lions nad cumberer from Jackie Brown is from a cool sexploitation movie (QT has said that is 1 of his favorite movies) called Vampyros Lesbos. I saw it recently :P it was a very damned cool movie, with 1 of the best soundtracks ever for a b-movie. Check this out!

hmm... very tough. At the moment I'm listening to "flowers on the Wall," by the Statler Bros, damn this song is the shiznat! And just to clue you in as to how eclectic my taste in music is, next track on the playlist is "Back Down" by 50 Cent.. hehe

miserlou, stuck in the middle with you and little green bag still give me a rush everytime I hear them...

I'm from Holland and live in the same village as george "little green bag" Baker does.....
He hit me with his car ones.....the dumb ass MF! driving around in his old volvo, looking like he's gonna bury himself.....
But had to forgive him, cause...well the song remembers me of the opening scene.......and well, gotta respect that!
