Pam Grier is Jackie Brown

pgw2

jackie1 It’s no secret that one Mr. Canacorn has a couple of loves in his life (other than The Wife and baby Chuy)…

Vinyl and soundtracks! So in celebrating all things Pam this week, I figured we’d talk about the Jackie Brown OST today!

We’ve all been told what a genius Quentin Tarantino is when it comes to picking music for his films…and I really have to agree wholeheartedly.

Sure, sure, I’d love for him to finally hook up with a composer that could whip up an amazing score, but just like Martin Scorsese before him, QT knows how to pick existing songs that can capture the viewers attention and really solidify a scene.

What really impressed me about the Jackie Brown soundtrack was QT’s ballsy choice to use such recognizable songs and still be able to give them a whole new life within the JB universe.

Let’s take a look and a listen to some choice cuts, shall we? Just click on the pic and be transported to wonderful world of YouTube!

    Since I got you here let me ax you something. What do Tarantino have against rock music with balls? Whycome no guitar rock? Good Pam Grier stuff by the way. Is she related to Rosey Grier? He played for the LA RAMS, they were a football team.

    QT hasn’t deemed hard rock cool, I guess. His loss.

    And yes, Pam is cousins with one of the heads of the thing with two heads…the Black head…if you didn’t already know.

    Are you going to do any Pam stuff or just stick to your posts about dog fucking all week?
