This soundtrack arguably started the craze for adding film dialogue to the albums. Of course, when you have Samuel L. Jackson in character talking about "Royale with Cheese," it's worth hearing over and over again. Pulp Fiction bested even Reservoir Dogs for capturing a film's mood and a director's (Quentin Tarantino) vision. Besides classics like Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man," you also get Urge Overkill delivering probably the band's best song ever, covering Neil Diamond's "Girl, You'll Be a Woman Soon." And can't you just see Uma Thurman dancing away to the tune too.

Editorial Notes

Producers: Jim Monsour (track 1); K & G Productions (track 3); Willie Mitchell (track 4); Bob Irwin (track 5); Ricky Nelson, Ozzie Nelson, Jimmy Haskell (track 6); Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, Arif Mardin (track 7); Bob Keene (track 8); Urge Overkill, Kramer (track 10); Bruce Brody, Maria McKee (track 11); Bill Wenzel (track 12); Jerry Kennedy (track 13). Also available with RESERVOIR DOGS as a 2-CD gift set. Pumped with the same sweaty adrenaline as the movie, the soundtrack for PULP FICTION is an audio example of why director Quentin Tarantino is becoming the most talked-about filmmaker of the '90s. Meshing snippets of dialogue with a diverse and powerful soundtrack, PULP FICTION is dripping with the same seedy tension that characterizes Tarantino's films. There are moments of elegance too. Al Green's luxurious "Let's Stay Together" and Dusty Springfield's throaty "Son Of A Preacher Man" show that the heart of a romantic beats behind Tarantino's mischievous grin. A generous sampling of surf rock from the likes of Dick Dale and his Del-Tones adds to the chaotic atmosphere of the three different stories within the film. The soundtrack for PULP FICTION is another homage to Tarantino's great love affair with American rock. The tongue-in-cheek delivery of Neil Diamond's "Girl You'll Be A Woman Soon," as done by Urge Overkill, brushes against the lonely-criminal sentiment of Ricky Nelson's gorgeous "Lonesome Town." While cheesy, Tarantino is definitely hip, and PULP FICTION's soundtrack will make you respect his ear for detail even if you haven't seen the film.
