As with all of writer/director Quentin Tarantino's films, music plays a major role in the first installment of his 2-part epic Kill Bill. For the Grammy-nominated original soundtrack to 2003's Kill Bill Vol. 1, a martial arts flick about an assassin who seeks revenge, The RZA from the multiplatinum-selling Wu-Tang Clan takes center stage, surrounded by the sort of vintage, quirky tracks that made the soundtracks to Tarantino films such as Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown such fan favorites. The 15-track offering ranges from material by '60s pop diva Nancy Sinatra to rockabilly's Charlie Feathers, from trumpeter Al Hirt and soulman Isaac Hayes (with a 1974 blaxploitation cut) to pan flute master Zamfir's '70s classic "The Lonely Shepherd," Santa Esmeralda's much-covered 1977 Top 20 "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" and The's, a campy '90s all-girl group from Japan.
