Reservoir Dogs: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

This movie soundtrack kicked off one of my favorite and most underrated decades (the 1990's). After the corporate rock late 1980's, movie soundtracks were a lost art. Not any more. Suddenly the blending of music and cinema was important and cool again.

Top moments include: "Little Green Bag", "Stuck in the Middle with You", "Coconut", and a generous helping of comedic quotes from legendary Stephen Wright who plays radio DJ host (K-Billy's Super Sounds of the Seventies's Weekend).

Django Unchained: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

This soundtrack is the answer to the question, "How do you add rap music to a Western Soundtrack without making it sound cheesy". Yes. It's an eclectic mix of Spaghetti-Western themes, cowboy-friendly folk rock .... AND ... funk, rap ... AND ... the usual assortment of sound bites. Somehow it works. Yes, the whole thing is rather listenable, entertaining, and on the same level as the other Tarantino soundtrack standouts such as Death Proof, Reservoir Dogs, and Pulp Fiction. We are definitely getting spoiled. This standard of quality soundtrack seems impossible to maintain going forward.
