My 3 favourite pieces of music in the film are:


  1. “Lonely Sheppard” by Zamfir. (Trust Tarantino to find perhaps the only cool tune Zamfir ever recorded!)



    This tune was so perfect for the film I assumed at first that it was composed specifically for the movie.


  2. Bernard Hermann’s score from “Twisted Nerve.” Has anyone here seen the original movie?



    It’s brilliant the way Tarantino built the hospital sequence around this piece; making use of the signature Brian De Palma / French New Wave split screen effect.


  3. And for me, here’s the absolutely most impressive use of music in the film and perhaps my favourite musical moment in any of his films:



    While the Bride is sawing her way through the Crazy 88 Killers, I tried to think ahead to how he was going to make the showdown with Oren Ishii spectacular and a fitting follow up to the killer action that was happening in the build up.



    I conjoured up a few vague scenarios of my own but I wasn’t prepared for how powerful the stand off at the beginning of their showdown was going to be.



    With just a few clever poses from the actors and some tasty camera moves (vaguely Leoni-esque in nature) cut to the most incredibly perfect piece of music imaginable, it genuinely made the hairs stand up on the back of my head and it’s one of my favourite movie moments of all time.



    That piece has everything in it that you want in a good stand off tune: first it kicks in with that killer and exciting knee slapping percussion, then the spanish guitar fiddlybits explode, bringing into the scene the necessary spaghetti western motif, then the funky guitars kick in and all of a sudden, there’s echoes of blaxpolitation films, and then, just when your anticipation is at a peak and you’re finding it hard to sit in one spot, the devil horns kick in with those monster riffs! Fan-Fuckin-Tastic!



    And I’ll never forget the way I felt when I saw that for the first time. (Thank You Mr. Tarantino, for many such glorious movie moments). When I got the soundtrack, I searched high and low on the CD looking for that piece of music and at first, I couldn’t find it anywhere.



    And perhaps here’s the most impressive thing about it: that music is buried halfway through what is really a very mediocre version of “Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood” by Santa Esmerelda. How the hell did Tarantino discover that killer piece of music right in the middle of that unremarkable cover version?



    (Does anyone here have any background info on that?)



    I’ve only seen Kill Bill Volume 1 twice but it’s been permanently burned into my neural pathways. It was far greater than I was expecting to be; probably because I was starting to suspect that the lengthy delay after Jackie Brown was an indication that perhaps Tarantino had lost his magic. But how wrong I was (Thank God.)



    I realised it was going to be great right from the opening shot with the close up of the bride’s beaten and bloodied face. It had all the characteristic, unsettling sadism of a classic Tarantino moment and I thought to myself, "Fuckin Hell. Tarantino’s back."



    Kill Bill Volume 1 is a masterpiece and in my opinion, cinematically far superior to many of the genre films it pays homage to. Of course, there are certain limitations to the Kung Fu scenes in the film because of the lack of expertise with the cast members involved, but from a purely “the art of narrative filmmaking” point of view, Kill Bill Volume 1 is second to none (except hopefully Volume 2.)

Thanks Usurper! The fact that it was written ‘who cares’(composer) in ‘The Sunny Road to Salina’ ID3 tag was bugging me so I dug a bit and found his name to be Bernard Girard-Christophe


#427

Great stuff.



Does anyone know who did the Sunny Road To Salina?


#435

It’s from the film “Road to Salina” (1971)

Composer: Bernard Girard-Christophe


#436

I heard that RZA gave tarantino the Lone Sheppard track, anybody heard this too?

I do know the track Lone Sheppard was sampled on a song that is from an wu-affiliate, I believe 4th disciple produced it, he’s a student of RZA.
