Tarantinoesqe music of his liking,the stations are  Bounce FM, K Rose,  Mastersounds Fm
and K dust....

Bounce fm= Classic funk and jive
K Rose= Country music and western songs
Mastersounds= old school R&B retro 70's music
K dust= Classic rock

The soundtrack is great I wonder if Qt ever played the game GTA san andreas... Im sure
he would get a kick out of the radio music station... BTW SAM" the man" Jackson
and Chris Penn voices 2  characters in the game.. Totally awesome!!
Ha ha, yeah i've noticed this too! Normally if we were talking my music taste i'd stick to Radio X, however I find I normally listen to those stations for the 'Tarantino Factor'!

The inclusion of Samuel L and Penn doing voices was great! (Gotta love Shaun Ryder's voice more though!)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't QT start the whole dialogue in a OST thing??

Good Morning Vietnam and American Graffiti had dialogue from the movie(s) on the soundtrack, but the DJ were the only ones talking. As far as other characters in movies goes..Good question.

Instead of that song by Sinatra's daughter "He Shot Me Down". Just my opinion. (BTW I'm sorry I can't remember the name of the woman who did that song at the beginning of Kill Bill 1)
It is definatley one of the best-used songs in any of his movies! Or any movie! It goes so well with the movie, it's kinda freaky! "Music played and people sang, just for me the church bells rang". Plus the obvious, "Bang, Bang my baby shot me down"...sometimes I wonder if he had the song in mind when he wrote the movie? Just listen to the words!

Yeh QT doesn't just use any old music in his films. The songs he uses most of the time are very relevant to the scene. In the instances where the song has nothing to do with the scene or the characters, it is usually a song/music that fits into the scene very well. Also, he times his music and what is going on on-screen perfectly. On most occasions what is happening on screen matches the music and it is (almost) always pin point correct. One example I can think of is in Jackie Brown where some music is played before Jackie gets to the mall, QT timed it so that the moment she entered the mall and started becoming familiar with the room the music changed at that exact point which matches the atmosphere at the time (see Special Edition Trivia Track).

He is like Leone in this way as Leone also used some great music at the most appropriate times in his films to great effect.

I think Sid Vicious' version of My Way (which was used in the final credits of Goodfellas) would suit a Tarantino movie

I agree with the person that said '96 Tears' would be good in one of his movies...I also think that 'Bandito' by Dick Dale would also be good, as well as 'Pipeline' by who's name I can't remember.

I totally agree Quentin's soundtracks are the best.

OK--Tarantino has fucking great taste in music.

I know the Bang Bang hater changed his mind (wisely) but using Nancy Sinatra's song was one of the most inspired he's ever done.

And don't forget--Tarantino has ressurected the careers of many a musician--Dick Dale, Link Wray, even Al Green and Neil Diamond to a certain extend (with the cover of "Girl You'll be a Woman Soon").

I agree witht Question Mark and Mysterions 96 Tears call--perfect for Tarantino. But also another Nancy Song, only with Lee Hazelwood like, "Some Velvet Morning" would be excellent in a QT film. And some more rockabilly, like Eddie Cochran or Johnny Burnett. This is, after all, I guy who said you could tell a lot by a person if they considered themself an Elvis or Beatles fan. He is, clearly, pro-Elvis.

You are right there. I'm 16, and after seeing Q's films i've got into Al Green, Chuck Berry and others. it's helped me appriciate a different kind of music to most people my age, which is a fantastic thing to do.

It would have to be an EXTREMELY well-chosed rap song, otherwise the mood would be totally ruined.

he had a Foxy Brown song on the Jackie Brown OST (Letter to the Firm) wich is, indeed, an extremely well chosen rap-song

How do you know that? Not saying you're wrong, but did he say in an interview...or are you just assuming that is something he does.

He's said it in a interview.

Quentin loves just about every song in the world. Cheesy or not.

On the Pulp Fiction Special Edition OST, there is a interview with QT where he mentions what I said earlier.

You're wrong. There's probably an earlier example but when Jack Nicholson edited the LP of the soundtrack to 'Head' he used snippets of dialogue from the movie. Sometimes mixing two seperate sentences to make a new one. For example,"You're music was pretty white." "And you know, the same goes for Christmas." Also the soundtracks to the Monty Python films are heavily dialogue based.

What about “She was six and he was seven…..�?

I must admit I was excited when I found out that he was using a Neu! track in Kill Bill Volume One.

he seems to know the best soul music aswell though i have to admit apart from "across 110th street" the jackie brown soundtrack was pretty poor as far as qt's standards of soul music is.

Cheech and Chongs Up In Smoke soundtrack has dialogue excerpts from the film before each song like QTs soundtracks.

Guys listen to this great interview. He first talks about Lenzi's film Nightmare City - I think the first time "Infected people" ran was in The Crazies. I mean everyone rips off Romero, but anyways, just listen to this - it's gold!
