A great soundtrack to a great movie

"The soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's breakthrough movie Pulp Fiction is arguably one of the best soundtrack albums you'll ever hear. Like Tarantino's other movie soundtracks like Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, it combines a few great songs that were past hits with tracks that most music listeners have never heard before. Unlike those soundtracks, Pulp Fiction is great from beginning to end with the more obscure tracks being arguably better than the more established songs.All of the tracks here that were past hits are very strong. Kool & The Gang's "Jungle Boogie" is one of the best funk jams from the '70s. Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" is '70s soul at its best. Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell", Dusty Springfield's "Son Of A Preacher Man", Ricky Nelson's "Lonesome Town", and the Statler Brothers' "Flowers On The Wall" with its catchy chorus are also great tracks. Any movie soundtrack containing these tracks would be pretty good. But what really puts this album over the top are the more obscure tracks or "deep cuts." Dick Dale's "Misirlou" is a killer track that resurrected the surf guitar king's career. Urge Overkill's version of Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be A Woman Soon" is an outstanding track which is even better than the original. The tracks "Bustin' Surfboards" and "Surf Rider" are also great. But it's the somber acoustic track "If Love Is A Red Dress" with Maria McKee's fantastic vocal performace and whistling hook that steals the show. The snippets from the movie are some of its best moments, especially "Royale With Cheese" and Samuel Jackson's closing "Ezekiel 25:17." The tracks are also sequenced very well, never putting songs from the same genre or mood together. All told, this is a great soundtrack to what was arguably one of the best movies of the '90s. Highly recommended."
You'll recognise every track on this CD . . .

"Oh well, nearly every track. I recognise about half of the tracks on this. There's lots of snippets of dialogue from the movie to start some of the tracks, so you know exactly where they appear in the movie. However, only a couple of these tracks are introduced like this - those being "Misirlou"; "Bullwinkle Part II"; "You Never Can Tell"; and "Comanche". Personally, I couldn't recognise these tracks by THOSE names if I tried - but if I were to tell you: "Pumpkin & Honey Bunny"; "Royale With Cheese"; "Zed's Dead, Baby"; "Jack Rabbit Slims Twist Contest"; and "Bring Out The Gimp, then you're clicking your fingers in recognition right? (Every one but the last one!) Some of the dialogue snippets are pretty much pointless. They need to be short and quick, and some of them are just too long, and you're desperate for the music to start playing.For anyone who would like to hear Samuel L. Jackson's infamous quote, just before he's going to kill someone, the last track of this is a must for you! (Ezekiel 25:17) Go ahead and learn it off by heart, and then you can spout it to anyone you wish - and scare them witless.One of the greatest songs on this has to be "Let's Stay Together" by Al Green. This was also featured in Down To You, but ISN'T for some strange reason on the soundtrack to that. (The song that Julia Stiles sings to Freddie Prinz Jnr in the college room)I was not expecting to find a song by Maria McKee on this! But as with most soundtracks, there is normally a whole mixture of tunes thrown haphazardly in and normally none of them will match!A great soundtrack to match a great film, and is a definite must-have for any soundtrack fan, or anyone who can't find certain songs on any other CD - this will have them."
5-Star Soundtrack For A 5-Star Movie

"I will not talk about the movie, you already know it rocks, you already know it's one of the best films ever made, almost everyone agrees with that, a movie masterpiece. This soundtrack is as good as music as the film was in characters and situations... Tarantino has done an amazing job in this soundtrack. Even though I'm not much of a fan of music from the 50s, 60s and 70s, this soundtrack just made me love nearly every single song in it. The best songs are: Let's Stay Together, Lonesome Town, Son Of A Preacher Man, You Never Can Tell, Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon and Flowers On The Wall - all of them magnific songs. Not to mention the dialogues and the instrumental music - Misirlou and Surf Riders are movie classics. Overall, this is a CD everyone should own. Soundtrack collectors, music fans... Everyone. If there was a Top 100 Soundtracks, you could be sure: Pulp Fiction would be in Top 5."
