Album of the Day 01.22.14: Kill Bill Vol. 1

When Quentin Tarantino teamed up with The RZA and Lawrence Bender to produce the soundtrack for Kill Bill Vol. 1, they had a hit before they even started. Featuring tracks by Nancy Sinatra, Santa Esmeralda, The 5.6.7.8′s, to The RZA himself, the soundtrack was released on Sept. 23, 2003 and reached #45 on the Billboard 200 album chart and #1 on the soundtracks chart.

However, tracks that feature lyrics on the soundtrack are minimal, just like the limited dialogue in the film. From the swaggering rockabilly that sets the mood, to the twangy, instrumental funk, interlaced with your typical Tarantino sound effects and kung fu fighting hits, you’ve got yourself one epic soundtrack that is a part of a movie, but can also hold it’s own.
