Quentin Tarantino – Soundtrack Genius

I’ve made some changes to this old Quentin Tarantino soundtrack post – hope you enjoy (again!)

emmakwall (explains it all)


love Quentin Tarantino. I love his stories, his scripts, his characters, his enthusiasm for films and of course…his soundtracks. Which I will be concentrating on today as I try to put each of his eight original soundtracks into the order of their brilliance. Now, as QT fans will know, his soundtracks are just as impressive and exciting as his movies and to be honest, I found it pretty darn tricky. I adore all of them really and so this wasn’t the easiest of tasks. Anyway, hope you enjoy. And I’m not including From Dusk till Dawn, Natural Born Killers or True Romance because he didn’t direct them or create the soundtrack.

8. Reservoir Dogs (1992)

This was Quentin’s first ever soundtrack (funnily enough) and it’s a real mix of eclectic pop songs from the 1970s. Reservoir Dogs is his only soundtrack not to have one instrumental piece on it and there is no dialogue save the Madonna’s big dick conversation…

    Oh my gosh, girl!!! What an awesome post!! I really love all of them OST’s. Marvellous stuff. I had no idea that the jukebox in Death Proof was his own. I want it, I want it, I want it. Ohh, this post just made my weekend 😊

  3. Wonderful list… I heard most of them but now I’ve heard all… thanks to you Emma… 🙂

    (Sorry for visiting your blog after so long, was caught-up in work and other stuff… I’m planning on catching up on all the posts I missed soon! hehe!)

  4. Great list! I love them all.

    I like the updates you did, can’t beat that jukebox scene in Death Proof, supremely sexy.

      It was cut from the theatrical version but thankfully the song she danced to – Down in Mexico – wasn’t cut from the album. I love it!!!!!!

      It’s a very sexy scene yes, I think it beats Rose McGowan in Planet Terror actually!

      Thanks Vinnie 🙂 I had a bit of a re-order and added some pics!

        I love both scenes, that Rose McGowan one is hot.

          Robert Rodriguez loves a sexy lady dance. Salma Hayek in From Dusk till Dawn is the queen but what about Jessica Alba in Sin City?! Wowza!

          I do love the opener to Planet Terror and that song is so fucking good as well but I do think there is a raw sexiness in the Death Proof dance. It’s the longing!!!!!! You can taste the tension.

Any thoughts?
