The moral of the story in Quentin Tarantino’s film Kill Bill is simple: there’s nothing like revenge. But it’s his carefully curated soundtracks that tell a story within the story. And there’s really no better way to set the tone than by opening with Nancy Sinatra’s torch song “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down).” Sinatra’s haunting version of Sonny Bono's song might lead the listener to believe that Tarantino based the plight of his protagonist bride (played by Uma Thurman) on this song’s riveting narrative. Similarly, Charlie Feathers' rockabilly boot-stomper “That Certain Female” perfectly taps into the cocksure swagger of antagonist Bill (played by David Carradine). Where Tarantino’s past soundtracks abounded with twangy surf guitar songs, here he leans harder on the Ennio Morricone–inspired spaghetti western instrumentals to capture a classic gunfighter vibe. Luis Bacalov's “The Grand Duel (Parte Prima)” is fittingly melodramatic for this story, as is Zamfir’s campy panflute cover of James Last’s “The Lonely Shepherd,” which sounds like the theme song to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Shame on you Apple! No more Album only. Half of this album is clips of a few seconds or dialog from the movie. There are some great songs on here, but not enough to justify even half the album price. I understood album only on occasion when one song might be half the album or more, but these are only a few minutes each at most. Even worse, all the songs worth getting existed years before this movie was made, yet you can not even purchase them separately elsewhere on itunes! That is letting the publishers of this album take unfair control over other people's copyrights. Ridiculous!
It was the low down & greedy rip-off trick of album only sales that helped destroy the music publishing industry and made piracy popular. iTunes was the reasonable compromise with consumers that saved the day and individual song sales was one of the most important parts of iTunes. Now Apple is becoming evil and playing by the old rules.
Stop it now! I will not buy this one.
You messed it up by going to Album Only
Thank God I got the songs I wanted before this fatal mistake. Looks like I'm going to have to start shopping elsewhere like everyone else that wants a few songs here and there. What is your problem? PS: The music is great, too bad I won't be buying any more tunes off this album.
It's only doing half the job
This soundtrack only covers the more memorable tunes but leaves out other noteable hits such as Lily Chou-Chou's "Kaihukusuru Kizu" and "I'm Blue" from The 5,6,7,8's. These tracks and more are included on Kill Bill Volume 1: Complete Motion Picture Soundtrack. iTunes would be wise to add it.
