How Do All the Sampled Scores on the Kill Bill Vol. 1 Soundtrack (2003) Resonate with Poet/Writer Jaylan Salman?

All the way from Egypt, poet/writer, Jaylan Salman, joins Ryan and Nicole to talk about the soundtrack to Quentin Tarantino's 2003 film, Kill Bill, Vol. 1. Just like the film on a visual level, the soundtrack pays homage to many films on an audio level, both famous and obscure. The soundtrack was certified Gold but its influence extends far past the amount of units that it sold.

We discuss:

  • The movie and why Ryan took so long to see it
  • How the RZA "sampled" other film soundtracks
  • Why this revenge film works so well
  • Who we think could put together a killer soundtrack like the RZA

Ryan has a degree in Film Studies, and he’s a musician. So, Soundtrack Your Life is the perfect intersection of his two main passions.
