Frequently asked questions and answers:



Q: Does anybody know the name of the song thats playing when Pai Mei and the Bride are fighting using their tiger claw and eagle claw??

A: The song is called “Three Tough Guys” by Isaac Hayes

Note: How about buying the soundtrack of three tough guys? I got mine earlier this summer. It also has “run fay run” on it. It’s a remastered cd but the quality is still quite crappy.



Q: Which movie is “L’ARENA” originally in? You know, the song by Ennio Morricone that’s used in Kill Bill Vol 2.

A: IL MERCENARIO. With Franco Nero (aka The Mercenary)

Note: If you like that movie, also check out COMPANEROS



Q: When Beatrix gives Bill the Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique, and he is saying like ‘you’re not a bad person…’ and then right after that is Navajo Joe’s theme. The guitar sort of sounds like Navajo Joe, and I’m willing to bet money it’s an Ennio Morricone song, but help me out.

A: The Demise of Barbara and The Return of Joe from Navajo Joe



Q: please does anyone know the song thats playing when the Beatrix (the bride/black mamba/whatever) is walking across the desert type thing and then shes on top of the mountain and she sees elle get out of her car and walk into Budds trailer? im not talkin bout the Ironside (except) lil bit im talkin bout the music before.

A: That would be “Sunny Road to Salina” - Bernard Girard Christophe



Q: uh, does anyone know what song is playing when Budd is talking to Bill at the start. The song leads into the start of “Grave of Paul Shlutz{sp}”.

A: “Dies Irae” is played by Nora Orlandi



Q: Does anyone know the song that is playing whenever the Bride is walking through the desert, right before she gets to Budd’s trailer and starts kicking ass? I don’t believe it’s on the soundtrack.

A: Sunny Road to Salina



Q: It’s when Beatrix and BB are in bed watching Shogun Assassin.

A: About her - malcom mclaren



Q: looking for the name of the last Song in Kill Bill 2

A: Navajo Joe Theme - Ennio Morricone, or could be Black Mamba by RZA or “demise of barbara return of joe” - ennio morricone



Q: What is the song that’s played during Bill’s death scene?

A: Its the title theme from Navajo Joe (1966) a great spaghetti western directed by Sergio Corbucci, starring Burt Reynolds. It’s not the main title actually. It’s a rendition of the main title that plays at the film’s conclusion right when the baddie takes the axe to the head.



Q: Does anybody know the name of the music that plays in Kill Bill: Volume 2 whilst The Bride kisses Bill and during the panning of the camera from the Chapel? It plays again after Budd injects Beatrix in the ass. Could you also tell me who the song is by

–and–

Q: I need to know this one…what is that song that starts right after Budd dies and Elle is collecting her money, its all western like guitar…its also on the official site under Budd…please help!!!

A: The latter two questions refer to pieces written by Robert Rodriguez, particularly for the film

"The Massacre at Two Pines" & “Budd Twang”



Q: When the Kill Bill vol. 2 main (DVD)screen comes on there is a song that is playing, do any of you other tarantino fanatics know what song that is?

A: Malcom McLaren - About her



Q: Also does anyone know the name of the song that plays(in Kill Bill vol.2) when The Bride does the 5-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart-Technique?

A: "The demise of Barbara and the return of Joe - ENNIO MORRICONE"



Q: Right after The Bride hits the Five-Point Palm Exploding Heart Techique on Bill,a quieter Western music is playing while they are exchanging their last words to one another. When he gets up, it gets loud, which is “Navajo Joe.” What is the quieter music before that?

A: Could be “demise of barbara, return of joe” also from navajo joe, those are quite similar. Could also be the other way around



Q: Where can I download some of the tracks by Robert Rodriquez?

A:It would be at this topic - www.tarantino.info/forum/index.php?topic=3496.0







Non-resolved:



Q: what’s the music that plays right when she first sees B.B.?



Q: Whats the song that starts as soon as the Bride and Pai Mei fight hand to hand and ends right when Pai Mei finds the rock in the Bride’s hand and twists her arm. It plays for that short bit as they fight hand to hand. I’d appreciate it if anyone knew.


#3

If anyone knows, please provide the name of the song being played at the beginning of the deleted scene when Bill and the Bride are walking in the alley.


#4

What’s the music that is playing when The Bride is training with Pai Mei, when she is punching the wall?

I don’t know the name of it, but that was a pice of original music by the Rza.

Which first appeared the 1970 Italian giallo: The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh - I just picked up this DVD, and I immediately recognized the music, which is the main theme of the film. Of course, Tarantino is mentioned on the liner notes, as well by the director, Sergio Martino, in the bonus interviews.

That’d be “The Demise of Barbara and The Return of Joe from Navajo Joe” by Ennio Morricone from Navajo Joe.
