Love or hate Quentin Tarantino as a filmmaker, most all of us can agree that the famed director knows how to put together one heck of an amazing film soundtrack! Credit definitely has to be given to his music director Mary Ramos, as the pair always seem to find the perfect soundscape to capture the essence of many pivotal scenes throughout Tarantino’s extensive body of work.
Much of the music has its’ roots in the genre of funk and soul, however, there is also quite a bit of surf rock, country and classical thrown in for good measure as well. Tarantino digs out many lesser heard tracks but also manages to bring about a fresh life to some legendary classics as well.
In support of his amazing new film “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood”, Tarantino has paired up with Spotify for a takeover of their Film & TV Favorites playlist to compile a 71 song tracklist of some of his personal favorites from his own film soundtracks. The list is pretty incredible and we seriously can’t stop listening. It is like taking a trip down memory lane of favorite Tarantino film classics.
From the obvious “Bang Bang” by Nancy Sinatra (Kill Bill Vol. 1) to “Cat People” by David Bowie (Inglourious Basterds), as well as the best known track of all, “Misirlou” by Dick Dale & The Del-Tones (Pulp Fiction), you’ll find something of everything, including tracks you’d probably forgotten about completely!
