Pulp Fiction (Soundtrack, Explicit)
by Various Artists
Released: Sep 1994
Pulp Fiction not only revolutionized what was acceptable in mainstream movies, it also changed the way that soundtracks were put together. Quentin Tarantino selected songs that fit scenes perfectly and combined quotable dialogue with the music. Tarantino's strength is in finding common ground between huge artists and cult acts, big hits and forgotten gems. Ricky Nelson and Dusty Springfield finally received the respect they long deserved -- from the same stoner college kids who were lapping up Urge Overkill's Neil Diamond cover. The shotgun approach works so well that Al Green and blazing surf rock flow together seamlessly.
