Dick Dale's surf-guitar provided the memorable title theme ("Misirlou"), for Quentin Tarantino's 1994 smash, and although that sound runs throughout the soundtrack (along with bits and pieces of dialog from the movie), this is a pretty eclectic bunch of really terrific songs. I don't know how it all manages to hang together, but it does (you might say the same for the interwoven stories in the movie). Where else are you going to find Chuck Berry, Maria McKee, Al Green, The Statler Brothers, Kool & the Gang, Urge Overkill (singing a Neil Diamond ballad!), Ricky Nelson, Dusty Springfield, and the Tornadoes (among others) one album? McKee's beautiful "If Love is a Red Dress (Hang Me in Rags)" is a standout, partly because it's less familiar. One of the few soundtracks of the '90s that went into the CD player and stayed there for weeks and months thereafter.--Jim Emerson

This soundtrack catches the spirit of Tarantino's amazing movie but also stands alone as a piece of musical craftsmanship. The music, while often radically different on paper, blends together seamlessly, perhaps helped by Tarantino's selection of the very best dialogue. No-one will forget Dale's masterpiece opening sequence 'Misorlou'. Favorite songs: Misirlou, Bustin' Surfboards, Bullwinkle Part II, Girl, You'll be a Woman Soon, Comanche, 'Son of a Preacher Man,' 'If Love is a Red Dress' and Surf …
