I love both Kill Bill movies and can watch them over and over again.

Secondly I'd like to say to everyone who enjoyed this incredible film, to go and buy the soundtrack (that is if you like the music from the movie.)

Since we have quite a wait for the DVD (as of this writing), the best way to experience some of our favorite moments from KILL BILL at home is to get this CD. The opening song performed by Nancy Sinatra is here, along with Luis Bacalov's "The Grand Duel" theme, heard in the film during the animated "Origin of O-Ren" chapter. Bernard Herrmann's "Twisted Nerve" is here (begun in the film as the tune Daryl Hannah whistles in the hospital corridor). Al Hirt's rendition of "Flight of the Bumblebee," better known as the theme from "The Green Hornet," is on board (heard in the film accompanying the Bride's flight over Tokyo and arrival in Japan), as is Tomoyasu Hotei's "Battle Without Honor or Humanity," the guitar riff and brass fanfare heard over the grand entrance of O-Ren and her party at the House of Blue Leaves (and used quite memorably in the film's first trailer). "The Flower of Carnage," the theme song from LADY SNOWBLOOD (1973) sung by its star, Meiko Kaji, and heard in the film following the O-Ren/Bride sword duel, is on the CD as well.
Some great cues from the film are not on the CD or not presented as they were in the film. Missing in action is Ennio Morricone's memorable percussion-woodwind-and-vocal Italian western theme, "Death Rides a Horse," heard as the Bride and O-Ren first confront each other in the House of Blue Leaves. Also missing is the Lily Chou-Chou number, "Kaifuku Suru Kizu," the enchanting wordless vocal heard as the Bride gazes at the array of swords in Sonny Chiba's upstairs room. Only one number ("Woo Hoo") of the three or so performed by the Japanese female pop trio, the 5.6.7.8's, in the House of Blue Leaves sequence is on the CD.

As much as Kill Bill was a terrific movie, the soundtrack contains some really good pieces, a couple of which are worth buying the whole CD for. While there are some odd pieces here and there, particularly the 'ode to o-ren-ishii', a fairly annoying rap, and 'queen of the crime council' which is dialogue lifted from the movie, the rest of the songs really describe the feel of the movie and are excellent to listen to.
The song 'Bang Bang' is the opening theme of the movie and is very easy on the ears, with a soft, sad, melodic tune. Track 2 is 'That certain female' which sounds like an elvis song, but nothing too spectacular. 'The grand duel' is a very moving song that is played during the anime sequence in the movie. When this song reaches toward the middle it gets very dramatic and emotional. 'Twisted Nerve' is the whistling song in the hospital, and is also very good coupled with the subtle orchestral tones. Too bad its only a minute and twenty seven seconds long. The next two are the 'oddities' I mentioned, and after that its 'Run fay run' and 'green hornet', both of which, while not as good as the next two songs that follow it, are still very 70s in their tune which is what the film tries to capture. 'Battle without honor or humanity' and 'Don't let me be misunderstood' are my two favorite tracks, the former being the bit where O ren ishii and her group walk toward the House of Blue leaves dance square. Its a very authoritative and badass song that also has a 70s feel to it and I love it. The latter is an extremely catchy and lengthy tune (at 10 minutes), part of which is played during the final fight in Kill Bill. It sounds very much like a latino song but, again, has that 70s touch to it, with fast guitar and trumpet rhythms.

The movie is good, but the soundtrack is terrific outstanding! The carefulness and cleverness to use of various songs and music for this movie are truly amazing. This soundtrack drives audiences to the right mood, the right tone, and the right atmosphere. It really takes you to immerse into the story, to feel the atmosphere, and to sample the bride's feelings. Like the song "Bang Bang (My baby shut me down)" sets you up the exact tone of the bride's sadness. And the "Twisted Nerve" builds an anchor into the audience mind. Whenever hearing whispering, you will think of the nurse coming to kill the Bride in the hospital. Other songs and music like "Run Fay Run", "Green Hornet", "Battle Without Honor or Humanity", and "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood" vividly lead you to the peak of your emotion along with the fighting scenes in the movie. Last but not least, the Japanese song "The Flower Carnage" sadly ends the life of O-Ren who got killed by the Bride in the Crazy-88 battle.
I haven't seen such a real outstanding soundtrack for a long while. This is a no doubt FIVE-STAR TWO-THUMBS-UP quality. Besides the music, the soundtrack CD comes with couple bonus video clips from the Kill Bill vol.1 movie as well. Overall, highly recommend!

Curiously, the liner only has lyrics for "Bang Bang" by Nancy Sinatra and "Flower of Carnage" by Meiko Kaji.
That's really the point, though. Tarantino wrote the film to be a "struck down woman exacts revenge on her would-be assassins". What more do you need? The lyrics to the other songs are really pointless, except for The Rza's Ode to Oren Ishii, but the small background music makes it easy to understand.
There's a little bit of rockabilly that only Elvis people can appreciate: Charlie Feathers' "That Certain Female" and "Woo Hoo" by the 5.6.7.8's just make you want to get up and boogie.
Those of you who noticed the yellow tracksuit should be pleased to know that the Theme Song to "The Green Hornet" is on this CD. Yep, this is all about Lee exacting revenge on Carradine.
Besides the Sinatra and Kaji tracks, the other two that really set things off are The Lonely Shepherd by Zamfir and The Grand Duel by Luis Bacalov. Both feel like they belong in a Sergio Leone film, except they borrow from other styles: The Lonely Shepherd has a Mexican/SW flavor as it builds, and The Grand Duel starts off with an Asian flavor.
The cool thing is you can almost see the carnage, smell the blood and hear the steel slice through flesh when listening to it, especially after watching the trailers.
The number one reason to own this CD: the theatrical trailers. There's the teaser that played before Gangs of New York as well as two full trailers that you can only see on this CD and in theaters. (The Full Trailer at Quicktime is much different than either of these.) The kicker: the "Quentin Tarantino Bootleg" trailer uses similar shots to what one would see in the trailer to Sergio Leone's "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". It seems like a shot-for-shot remake of that trailer, except they use Kill Bill footage.
